Peter Thomas Roth Pro Strength Microdermabrasion Blackhead Eliminator.

Peter Thomas Roth Pro Strength Microdermabrasion Blackhead Eliminator

Thank you Peter Thomas Roth for sending me this product Free before it's launched for testing purposes! Getting it early I've been able to test it out and see how it works, if it works and if I'd recommend it!

Let's talk a little about the product, price point and it's claims first. You can purchase it from Sephora for $68.00! It contains 2 fl oz and comes in a squeeze tube, which makes it easier to use compared to products that come in a pot. You're supposed to use it up to once or twice a week, depending on your skins sensitivity! The description on Sephora says "An intensive triple-action exfoliating rinse-off treatment that works to eliminate, treat, and prevent the look of blackheads, whiteheads, and clogged pores." 

It contains: 
[2% Salicylic Acid], to help treat acne. 
[5% Microencapsulated Enzymatic Complex], which helps with the look of clogged pores caused by Blackheads & Whiteheads.
[Exfoliating Crystals], They're tiny abrasive particles to help exfoliate the sink and clear out your pores.

The product is for oily, combination, or normal Skin. It's meant to help clean your pores like it says, but it's also good for acne. Which I can honestly say I needed this week! My face has decided to suddenly break out all over after it had finally started healing. One thing to note, This is not exactly beginner level exfoliation. An exact quote from the Sephora website says "This is an expert-level exfoliator, with kaolin and bentonite clays, that chemically exfoliates with 2 percent salicylic acid, enzymatically exfoliates with a 5 percent microencapsulated enzymatic complex, and physically exfoliates with exfoliating crystals to dissolve, cleanse, and whisk away the look of blackheads and whiteheads."

The description says to lightly pat on to clean, dry skin. Do not get this product near the eyes. You only leave it on for a few minutes. The directions suggest 1 - 4 minutes, depending on the sensitivity of you skin. I have fairly sensitive skin and didn't have an issue leaving it on the full 4 minutes. It felt warm and very slightly tingly. Once you wait the few minutes, You wet your hands and massage the product in, in a circular motion, gently. Then wipe it away. My skin was a little pink and warm, but there wasn't any burning or irritation! Here in the pictures I've included, picture 1 is before, picture 2 is where I had put it on, on select areas where I have some acne flare ups and issues with congested pores, and photo 3 is after I had washed it off. My skin is noticeably more pink and shinier. I can 100% say I felt like my pores looked so much cleaner, it also seems as if it helped draw up to the surface some blackheads that were trapped under layers of skin. 

This is definitely a product I'd recommend to someone who is more experienced with chemical exfoliators and how to care for your skin. After using the Peter Thomas Roth Pro Strength Microdermabrasion Blackhead Eliminator, I followed up with my usual skincare products. I didn't have any issues with sensitivity or burning when I applied them either. I'm usually pretty nervous about harsher skincare products, but I love this product! I'm going to continue to use it, but probably only once a week, since my skin is so sensitive.

Thank you all so much for reading this post. I've been a bit off my game, but I'm excited to get back into the swing of things!
