I have found the secret to smooth skin!

Did the title catch you? Well it’s true. I’ve found the secret and I’m ready to share it and the full review now. If you are finding that your skin is dull, lacklustre and in need of a bit of a boost, then this product is going to be the one for you.
The product I am talking about is the new Peter Thomas Roth Pro Strength 30% Lactic Acid Complex Pore Treatment*. A bit of a mouthful, but worth every syllable. I have talked about Peter Thomas Roth before, so I won’t introduce the brand (feel free to go back through my blog posts and read about the brand before. So let’s get straight into the Lactic Acid Treatment.

So what is it? It is an extra-strength 30% Lactic Acid Complex and Witch Hazel in a clarifying and decongesting rinse-off treatment. This highly concentrated 30 per cent lactic acid treatment helps purify and reduce the look of enlarged pores, while witch hazel works to clarify and clear away excess oil. Five per cent glycerin helps combat any post-treatment dryness to leave skin feeling hydrated and balanced.

I have been using this treatment for a couple of months now, about two or three times a week, at night. Now, I do have pretty strong skin, so I did find that I had no irritation while using this treatment, but I have read reviews where people say that they found that the treatment was much too strong for their skin, and they ended up with reactions and irritations. I do encourage you start slow and patch test before using. Introduce once a week, or fortnight and slowly build into your routine.



To use, I first double-cleanse my skin to make sure it is squeaky clean. Then I take a couple of pumps (I find you don’t get a huge amount out with one pump, which is great for saving product, but does mean that you have to pump a few times to get enough out). I then apply it all over my face and leave for a few minutes. Sometimes I apply before cleaning my teeth, other times I will pop it on in the shower once I’ve put my conditioner in and I’m ready to shave my legs, it just depends. After two minutes or so are done, I simply rinse it off with a damp cloth. 

I am always shocked, come morning, how much smoother my skin is. It’s like I have just had a facial, or an extreme physical exfoliation treatment. It is as smooth as a babies bottom, you might say. The more I use it, the more I notice my skin texture is improving. My skin texture has never looked so smooth, I have noticed that I am getting less blemishes (until isolation ruined everything). It has very quickly become my go-to product when my skin is looking less than perfect.



Now, couple of things just to keep in mind - This product contains an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen, wear protective clothing and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterwards. 

That was a much longer review than I expected, but it’s safe to save I have been very impressed. You can shop the Pro Strength 30% Lactic Acid Complex Pore Treatme from Sephora AU, and while stores may be currently closed, you can still shop online!
