Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! Use it every day! I've been using this for about 8 months now. I got it as a sample and then ended up buying the big bottle. It's lightweight and moisturizing without making my face greasy or causing breakouts to worsen. I honestly think if I put it on at night, my face is halfway healed by morning. I'm absolutely hooked. And I have combination skin. I get dry some places and oily others. This seems to work regardless! Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle in a bottle! I purchased this product about a month ago and I could not be happier with the results! I use it two times a week and apply over problem areas. Not only it helps to get the acne under control, it also helps to reduce the visibility of old scars. Definitely would recommend!

I'm absolutely loving this product!  After a brief purging period, my skin looks great!  Question: Can I use this on the same night as using the Retinol Fusion PM?  

Asked by: Kaili
Hi Kaili! That's excellent we are so glad to hear that. To answer your question, yes you can use both, just be sure the clearing gel has fully absorbed into the skin before applying the retinol.

Hi, Can I use Peter Thomas Roth Aha/bha Acne Clearing Gel daily although I don't have any acne. Thanks!

Asked by: Yadanar
Hi Yandanar! You might experience over drying of the skin, however, you could use this gel every other day on problem areas to prevent future breakouts. Just be aware of excessive drying! An oil-free moisturizer is a great product to pair with this one.

Hello, I bought big size of Aha/bha Acne Clearing Gel and use daily until my acne disappear. Should I apply the whole face or only the affected area? Can I still use it unless there is acne on my face as a daily skincare? Thanks.

Asked by: Yadanar
Hi Yadanar, the recommendation is to cover the entire affected area with a thin layer one to three times daily. Unless you are experiencing excessive drying, you could use it on areas where you have recurring breakouts.

Hello, I noticed that there was a dramatic change in the formula of this product. I was wondering if the new formula still has 10% glycolic acid or not? Thanks, and would it be alright to use a toner underneath this or is that not recommended? 

Asked by: Marc Wyant
Hi Marc, there actually haven't been any changes to this formula.The packaging may have been updated from the last time you've seen it but the formula is the same. You could use a toner, but it may be best to skip anything with acids in it to avoid excessive drying. Hope this helps!

If i want to put this on an area with blackheads do I skip the moisturizer or do I apply this first and then the moisturizer. I am using the spot treatment which is not clearing up the deep blackheads, very thick skin, lol!

Asked by: rick
Hi Rick! Great question. You want to apply a thing layer of this product onto clean dry skin, most customers start off applying it every other day, I would start there and see how your skin reacts. Once it has completely absorbed into the skin - about 3-5 minutes - then you can apply your moisturizer. Hope this helps!
