Peter Thomas Roth Oil-Free Moisturizer Review
Peter Thomas Roth's Oil-Free Moisturizer is formulated to restore hydration to your skin without clogging pores or leaving behind any greasy residue. It is a weightless and super absorbent lotion-gel that sooths dry skin and helps prevent further dehydration. The moisturizer has a unique blend of ingredients that are designed to provide intense oil-free hydration, reduce redness and irritation and shield skin from environmental damage. It is a great product for people on acne treatment programs to combat dryness and for people who have oily skin because it provides great moisture without adding oil and shine.
You can purchase Peter Thomas Roth Oil-Free Moisturizer on Sephora.com or Skinstore.com for $42.
We give Peter Thomas Roth’s Oil-Free Moisturizer an A- because it is a well-formulated moisturizer that helps to improve the overall tone and texture of your skin by combining great, oil-free hydration alongside other beneficial ingredients such as retinol, antioxidants and allantoin (anti-irritant). We deducted a few points because it is relatively expensive, especially when compared to moisturizers like CeraVe PM, which is $13 at the drugstore and (in my opinion) just as effective. PTR’s Oil-Free Moisturizer also lost a few points because it contains a fragrance that may irritate sensitive skin and thickeners that may cause acne-prone skin to breakout.
Peter Thomas Roth's Oil Free Moisturizer gets very good feedback from customers on Sephora (4.3/5 out of 129 reviews). Paula Begoun, a skincare and cosmetics expert who conducts reviews on products using scientific research, believes this moisturizer is an improvement on the previous version, but she still doesn't think it is all that impressive. She also warns that the thickening agents may be problematic for acne-prone skin and that you should try to sample it first to see how your skin responds. I personally have been using this moisturizer for the past two years and love it. I have sensitive, acne-prone skin and struggled to find a good moisturizer that didn't cause breakouts or make my face shiny. This moisturizer has been awesome and is so lightweight/absorbent that it doesn't interfere with my makeup. I moved to Colorado this winter and am not sure it provides enough hydration for my skin anymore (given the season/higher altitude), but, regardless, I would definitely recommend PTR to friends with a similar skin type.
