Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Power Trio Review

One of my favorite skincare brands, Peter Thomas Roth, is featured as Today’s Special Value on QVC! The spotlight is on PTR’s Retinol Power Trio, with a newly launched product – the Retinol Fusion PM overnight resurfacing pads.

Retinol is THE anti-aging ingredient – it increases cell turnover to help with acne, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. If you’re in your late 20’s-30’s and haven’t yet incorporated retinol into your skincare routine, I would highly suggest as it will help prevent and rejuvenate any signs of aging so far.

So, what is this trio of retinol goodness?


Meet the Retinol Fusion PM Overnight Resurfacing Pads, Retinol Fusion PM Night Serum, and Un-Wrinkle Night Cream.

Peter Thomas Roth is known for his retinol serum, which helps rejuvenate the look of skin, appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improves skin tone and texture. It’s oil and fragrance free with 1.5% microencapsulated retinol to renew, refresh and restore skin. I’m a serum whore, so trust me when I say I love the way this one feels and sinks into my skin.

The new retinol exfoliating pads are AMAZEBALLS. Huge fan. Using them reminds me of when I’d use Stridex (anyone else remember these?!) pads in like, 7th grade, to strip all the excess grease off my oily skin… Yikes. I promise these are actually beneficial to use – and so satisfying to see any leftover gunk come off your face and show up on them. They have Retinyl Palmitate (a form of vitamin A that is more gentle than retinol) and glucosamine (an acid-free exfoliator) to exfoliate, renew, and smooth skin without overdrying it. They help to physically exfoliate to clear the skin’s sufrace of impurities to reveal a more even and youthful look!

The Un-Wrinkle Night Cream is super luxe, rich, and full of face-saving nutrients: anti-aging peptides, neuropetitdes, aloe vera, vitamins A, C, E, and pro vitamin B5, retinol, and glycolic acid. This is definitely a heavier night moisturizer, which is great for winter use for me, and would work wonderfully on anyone with normal to drier skin.

I had the pleasure of working with Peter Thomas Roth on this activation and they sent me the collection to try out. I’ve only been using this set for about a week, but so far can see visible improvement in my typically congested areas – lower cheeks, chin, and nose – looking and feeling better from the exfoliating pads. I may have to switch to a lighter night cream once the chilly, dry winter months are done but the un-wrinkle cream is perfect for me right now. As I said, the serum is amazing and has definitely become my nighttime go-to choice (for daytime, I turn to SkinCeuticals Blemish & Age Defense).

All products are a special super-size, which is saying something as PTR already makes generously sized products. This collection is bundled at $139, a $442 value! It’s only available at this price today through QVC, so click here to grab it while it’s hot.

  1. The resurfacing pads caused red dots on my skin. Much too harsh for my sensitive skin. Hope the dots aren’t permanent. Will not use them again.

    1. You should reach out to them, I bet they will take them back if it caused a reaction – they shouldn’t have, as they’re really gentle (and I have sensitive skin too). It may be from an interaction with another product – serum, cleanser, moisturizer, etc. Maybe try to test a pad on the inside of a clean wrist to see if it alone irritates it? Hope that helps! x
