Peter Thomas Roth has just released a skin care product that can really change the way your skin looks and feels. The Professional Strength 40% Triple Acid Peel is strong enough so that you see results, but safe enough that you can do it at home.
The Peter Thomas Roth Professional Strength 40% Triple Acid Peel consists of three acids–TCA (Trichloracetic Acid), Glycolic and Salicylic. It’s not unusual to combine acids in skincare products, but you do have to find a combination that works together for effective results. TCA Peels are usually used to improve hyperpigmentation, for anti-aging (fine lines and wrinkles) and sun damage. Glycolic acid peels will work on the same concerns, and offer additional exfoliating/detoxifying benefits. Salicylic Acid offers benefits for controlling acne and blackheads. This peel also is formulated with Hyaluronic acid and other humectants to hold moisture in the skin.
I’ve had a fair number of professional peels and have bought at-home peels before, so when I saw this one, I was interested. The kit comes with 12 vials containing the peel solution and 12 peel pads for application. Note: before doing any peel, you should always do a patch test on your skin first! I did not have any reaction to the patch test, so I proceeded to apply the peel. The vials contain a generous amount of product. Once you apply the solution to your skin, it stays on 2 minutes, then is rinsed off with water to neutralize.
I was pretty impressed with the results of the Peter Thomas Roth Professional Strength 40% Triple Acid Peel. First, my skin was remarkably soft; impressive, considering how dry it’s been. I saw notable brightening; the addition of the Hyaluronic Acid really gives a plumping, refreshed look to skin. The Peel is meant to be done once a week for 12 weeks for best results and I will definitely make that a Sunday night habit. I didn’t experience even the slightest amount of stinging or irritation, however all skin tolerability differs, so you might have a different result. As with all products of this type, using a sunscreen and limiting sun exposure is essential to maintain benefits and for prevention of future damage.
If you’re looking to jumpstart your skin, the Peter Thomas Roth Professional Strength 40% Triple Acid Peel ($88) is a great way to do it. I would definitely recommend and re-buy this product. You can find it at Sephora.
