The name for this liquid foundation is not credible because the active ingredients do not supply sufficient UVA protection. This isn’t a treatment makeup for wrinkles any more than eating a pan of brownies is a treatment for weight loss! The formula contains some peptides that typically are reserved for anti-aging serums and moisturizers, but there’s no substantiated proof that any of them work to make skin look younger. Even if they did, the insufficient sun protection leaves skin vulnerable to more damage and wrinkles. This has a slightly creamy texture that blends smoothly, providing medium coverage and a satin finish that’s somewhat glow-y. If the sun protection were better, this would be a suitable option for normal to dry skin. As is, you should think twice before considering any of the mostly neutral shades this foundation offers. The Deep shade is slightly peach.

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.
