Peter Thomas Roth Overview
Born of the desire to cure his own skin’s ailments, Peter Thomas Roth, the Hungarian descendant of hotel spa owners, created his own skincare line in 1993. Roth took care to incorporate that family knowledge when developing his skincare products which are based on the healing and soothing qualities of the muds and minerals derived from Hungary’s Thermal Springs. The Peter Thomas Roth skincare collection with its rejuvenating properties consists of over 100 products including moisturizers, cleansers, and treatments that address anti-aging, acne, dehydration, and sun protection. Roth’s repertoire also includes products for hair and body care plus fragrances.
The Peter Thomas Roth.com website in its high impact black color scheme, blue accents and white block-lettering exudes a strong presence without the pretense. The menu bar across the top introduces visitors to the company, its founder, the terms of service and its retail associations. The left side displays links to the company’s various product categories while the right side captions the feature product displayed in the center. The product pages provide a treasure of details and a full ingredient list. Unfortunately, clinical research, result photos nor testimonials are provided.
PeterThomas Roth – Product Description
The PTR site has a product to address every skin need and concern including shaving products. Unlike many other skincare lines, the big-bottled products appear to be unisex. With flavorful ingredients such as pumpkin seed and cucumber and ranging in price from $8 for sunscreen on a string to $150 for a facial firming and lifting cream, PTR products have a price point that hits every wallet. While the website is packed with more than enough products to constitute an entire skincare line, it is evident from a web search that the products listed are not all the company’s offerings.
For example, one product left out of the website’s brightening category is Roth’s Clinical Skin Care AHA/Kojic Under Eye Brightener. Available through third-party retailers, the product which is said to fade fine lines wrinkles, uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation, contains Hyaluronic , Glycolic, Kojic, Azelaic and Lactic acid, as well phospholipids, and Vitamins A &E among many other ingredients. Priced between $28 and $52, third-party reviews were hard to find. The reason may be the suggestion that it is being discontinued, a potential fact that explains why it was omitted from Roth’s website. The only review found expressed complete satisfaction with the Under Eye Brightener and all Peter Thomas Roth products.

Peter Thomas Roth – The Bottomline
Despite the lack of qualitative and quantitative research results, the biggest endorsement for Peter Thomas Roth products is Peter Thomas Roth himself. With his name plastered on every bottle and tube plus his youthful wrinkle-less face on the company profile page, confidence is garnered and serious consideration is warranted. Haling as a first generation Hungarian American, Roth appears to understand quality skincare doesn’t discriminate and doesn’t have to come in tiny packages with big price tags.

Also Remember These Dermatologist Recommended Important Tips:
- Age has nothing to do with the lines that appear on the corners of your eyes... it's a combination of heredity and careless abuse of the area.
- Skin is skin... it all needs to be cared for in one way or another. For my younger readers, this means not pulling on the skin when removing eye makeup.
- The eye area is prone to fine lines and wrinkles, so it is really important not over-work the area, squint, and stay away from smokey rooms. Your eyes won't like that either.
- One of the best ways to protect this area of your face is to put on a pair of sunglasses every single time you go outside spring, summer, fall and winter.
- There are very few oil glands in the eye area, so it can dry out very quickly, especially if you spend a great deal of time out of doors.
- When you chose an eye cream, be sure to choose one that is especially formulated for this delicate skin. Don't use a day cream that could be full of ingredients that will irritate this area. Too rich a cream can cause as many problems as ignoring the area.
