Hello. I'm new around here, but I wanted to review this great product. I've been using it about 2 weeks now, and I've seen a significant improvement over my complexion.

I decided to buy this product after being distraught over which lightening gel to chose from, since there are so many in the market today promising a lighter complexion. A big concern for me was whether to go with hydroquinone or natural ingridients. Well, I decided on this, and I couldn't be happier. My face is more even-toned and I have radiance that speaks for itself.

A small note though- I wouldn't suggest this for sensative skin because it might be too irritant. I have combination skin so my skin soaked it up quite well. The texture is not greasy at all and sinks in nicely. I will only use it for a short time though, then I'll go with the botanical formula thats also so raved about.

The above post is a review of the following product available at EDS:
Peter Thomas Roth Potent Skin Lightening Gel Complex with Hydroquinone (2 oz.)
Peter Thomas Roth Potent Skin Lightening Gel Complex with Hydroquinone (2 oz.)

Oil-free, hydroquinone 2% deep penetrating with azelaic acid, kojic acid, bearberry and mulberry extracts, vitamin C and salicylic acid for all skin types except sensitive
This exciting formulation contains the proven, highly effective skin lightening complex of 2% hydroquinone, azelaic and kojic acids, bearberry and mulberry extracts, anti-oxidant vitamin C, the proven skin-penetrating capabilities of dimethyl isosorbide and the gentle cell turnover properties of beta hydroxy acid (salicylic acid). Regular use combined with sun avoidance gradually lightens dark (brownish) spots such as freckles and age spots or pigment in the skin that may occur in pregnancy or from use of oral contraceptives.

Icyfire:

While checking out new PTR products saw your review of one of the lighteners with hydroquinone in Jan '05 I think.

Said you were going to use a natural product after finishing with the hydro...

Any update? & how would you compare nat'l vs hydro...

I tried this once but I think due to an allergy to hydroquinone or one of the other ingredients it gave me hyperpigmentation instead.....luckily it faded after a few days

What is your skin type? sensitive, dry, oily etc?

I'm asking cuz my own is not sensitive at all, can take & has taken a lot of abuse w/out awful side effects. But have reached age where am noticing those coloured spots popping up despite liberal use of high SPF sunscreen.
