Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10% Moisturizer Review
Hey beauties !
I hope you all are doing great today 🙂
Okay! So today I am here to review Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10 percent Moisturizer. Before starting to review it, I would like to tell you all a bit about my skin. I would not say that my skin is very healthy which tolerates everything I apply on so I keep it under the sensitive category. By type it is more toward combination side (and become oily in summers 🙁 2 years back when I got pregnant, my skin has changed suddenly, lost all its luster (I know it was majorly due to hormonal changes in the body during/after pregnancy and breastfeeding) and became so rough and dull due to lack of moisture. I was missing my beautiful dewy skin and started hunting a good moisturizer with some quality ingredients. My search stopped on Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10 percent Moisturizer. I brought this cream because of many positive reviews on the various beauty sites and was convinced by them due to the presence of 10% glycolic acid in it. Very soon, it became one of my favorite skin care product so I am here to share my experience about this product and to review it in detail.
What Company Claim About it
As per the company information it is an excellent product for all skin types. This luxurious complex uses a gentle, time-release form of Glycolic Acid that helps produce a beautiful, fresh, youthful-looking complexion.

More than 80% females found their skin smooth, refined, reduction in fine lines, wrinkles and signs of aging. These results definitely add a value in the product.

How to apply
It is advised to apply daily in the morning and in the evening, but I would suggest you to apply it at night (especially in the beginning) because it makes the skin photosensitive.
My Experience with Peter Thomas Roth Glycolic Acid 10 percent Moisturizer
It is completely an oil free formula without any fragrance. After application, it stings a bit, but you will be normal in next 5 mints. So don’t worry about it because it shows that the product has started working on your skin. A very less quantity is required for full face and my neck. After a week of its application I started noticing positive effects. My skin started feeling so smooth and the brown spots on my face started fading and is less visible now. I must say this moisturizer is very effective and I am using it without any side effect and allergic reaction. It is almost a month I am using it during the night and very happy and satisfied with the results.
Where to Buy
If you are in India then you may find difficult to find it in the cosmetic stores. You may find it little pricey but it runs longer due to less quantity. I bought it online from the Strawberrynet (it is my favorite destination to buy international brands these days). You can also buy it on Amazon India
