Product Review | Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots

Wednesday, October 21, 2015

I was randomly browsing the Sephora website (Super dangerous! Never casually browse, know what you came there to get, or they will get all your money!), and I fell upon these, while experiencing a random breakout of unknown cause.

I usually get hormonal breakouts or reaction to products, which I know how to deal with ; gentle skin care routine and benzoyl peroxide or honey treatments.  But this breakout was different, my guess is seasonal weather changes and consequently, allergies. Anyways, all this to say, my usual treatments just weren't as effective and I was ready to try something new.

The Peter Thomas Roth Acne-Clear Invisible Dots come in packs of 24 ($12) or 72 ($30). Though the bigger pack is better value, I opted for the 24 dots as I just wanted to test them out. The pack contains 2 sets of 12 transparent adhesive patches that come in two sizes (as you can see bellow). Packed with salicylic acid, tea tree oil and hyaluronic acid they help reduce and heal blemishes and clarify the skin with out causing dryness or irritation.

What I love about them? My favorite thing about a spot treatment of the sort is that you really feel like you're "sealing in" the good ingredients, kinda like when you put Neosporin on a wound you cover it up with a Bandaid so no bacteria comes in and therefore it heals faster...Yeah, it's like that but for your zits. Genius, I know. The second best thing is you get two powerful ingredients to calm down and clear the breakout (salicylic acid AND tea tree oil), since it's sealed in, you will see an improvement over night for sure. Third thing ; the hyaluronic acid (a natural humectant) ensures that you will not be left with dry flaky skin that can be hard to cover up the next day.

This is one of the most gentle and effective spot treatments I've ever tried. It terms of results, it was very reminiscent of the Lush Grease Lightning (which is a tea tree oil gel that kind of dries to a seal...), which I had loved in the past, but had stopped working for me. That being said, I think Grease Lightning would have been effective on this type of breakout as well.

The reason why I tend to prefer benzoyl peroxide, is because it works better on white heads (which is usually what I deal with) than other ingredients, fact. But I have used these on white heads on nights where I knew I couldn't have dry skin the next day and they do help! Also, sometimes on those red bumps it helps it turn into a white head faster and then I'll use benzoyl peroxide so the blemish will disappear in half the time.

I would highly recommend these if you experience occasional breakouts, I mean you could put all 24 at once if you had bumps all over but if that's the case you might want to look into a new skincare routine to really deal with the problem.

These are really great, and work fast and gently. It cleared up my issue, and I'm glad to have some leftover should I experience similar breakouts or if I just want to take it easy on my skin! Would also repurchase when I run out.

What is your favorite spot treatment? Let me know in the comments below!
