For over 25 years, Peter Thomas Roth has been a leader in making products that take a clinical approach to beauty. The brand focuses on ingredients that, when used correctly, have been clinically proven to improve the skin (such as vitamin C, retinol, and peptides) and appear in products from eye creams and moisturizers to masks and peels. Available at a mid-level price point and sold at a number of major retailers including Nordstrom, Sephora, and Dermstore, Peter Thomas Roth has become a household name.
With its current rise in popularity on social media platforms like TikTok, I decided it would be the perfect opportunity to give the brand a try and share my findings. Keep in mind that when experimenting with new skincare products, I pay extra attention to a few major things that are dealbreakers for me: 1) if my melanin-rich skin appears brighter, 2) any immediate and long-term changes to my skin’s texture, and 3) how moisturized my skin looks and feels. I stay away from any products that include potentially irritating ingredients (I’m allergic to aloe, for example) or feature-added pigments that leave an unsightly gray cast.
