Jar Packaging:No
Tested on animals:Yes

This very emollient, heavy-duty facial moisturizer is only for dry to very dry skin. Its blend of rich ingredients works well to make dry skin feel smooth and comfortable, and it contains a good blend of skin-repairing ingredients and antioxidants. The only drawback is the inclusion of grapefruit peel extract, but it’s likely present in an amount too low to be cause for concern.

Although this is pricey, it’s worth considering if you’ve struggled to find a facial moisturizer that makes your dry skin feel better for more than a couple of hours. Kudos to Peter Thomas Roth for not packaging this in a jar, which would have negated the effectiveness of the antioxidants Ultimate Creme in a Tube contains.

Brand Overview

Peter Thomas Roth At-A-Glance

Peter Thomas Roth is a large but straightforward line with mostly uncomplicated formulations that, for the most part, are quite good and state-of-the-art. Unlike many product lines, most of the acne, AHA, BHA, sunscreen, and moisturizing products contain what they should to be effective and helpful for skin.

Even more impressive are the well-formulated cleansers, sunscreens, AHA products, and skin lighteners. The moisturizers have improved somewhat, and most are now packaged so that the light- and air-sensitive ingredients remain stable. In fact, Roth's packaging deserves special mention because it is exceptionally utilitarian.

After all that glowing praise, what you should be aware of are the instances of products containing potential irritants (noted in their respective reviews) as well as the products in jar packaging that contain ingredients which are sensitive to air and light.
