This fragrant, creamy cleanser for dry skin is a bit greasy, but it does remove makeup and leave your skin feeling smooth. Most will find that you need to use a washcloth for complete removal, and it’s best not to leave residue from this cleanser behind because the fragrant base can cause irritation.

What would make this cleanser even better (aside from easier rinsing, no fragrance, and a more realistic price tag) would be if it contained an array of barrier-restoring ingredients to help skin begin the process of repairing itself. Even then, there is no reason to spend this much on a cleanser.

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.
