Peter Thomas Roth Potent C Skincare Range review
Hello guys, today I will be writing about the new skincare range from Peter Thomas Roth. I was invited to the Sephora Spring 19 Press Event and I got to see these launches first hand. Well today I’ll shade what I think.
Starting off with the item that I brought home! The Potent-C Power Serum. Out of all the items in this range, I wanted to try this one the most. And I wasn’t disappointed at all.
OK let’s read the official description first:
The future of Vitamin C has arrived. Potent-C™ Power Serum unleashes the strength of THD ascorbate, an ultra-stable scientific breakthrough ingredient 50 X more powerful than traditional Vitamin C.
The future of Vitamin C has arrived. Potent-C™ Power Serum unleashes the strength of THD Ascorbate, an ultra-stable scientific breakthrough ingredient 50 X more powerful than traditional Vitamin C. Packed with a jaw-dropping concentration of 20% THD Ascorbate, the serum’s performance is amplified by the addition of two ultra-powerful antioxidants (3% Vitamin E and 2% Ferulic Acid), delivering a complete and advanced formula for aging, firming and brightening concerns. This rich moisturizing serum is a must to help improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles, firmness, uneven skin tone, texture and brightness. Fragrance-free.
Apply 1-2 pumps to clean, dry skin. For best results, use twice daily on face, neck and back of hands. For external use only.
OK so I have been trying it for a while, and I really like it. This is one really concentrated formula, with 20% Vitamin C concentration (Sunday Riley Rapid Flash Brightening Serum is 15%). It’s quite pricey, with this little bottle of 30ml costing about 80 USD (2800 THB). But I think it’s worth the investment.
The formula is a milky serum that quite light when applied, but its actually not light at all. Once applied I can feel that it’s actually rich, and the Vitamin C scent is quite obvious. But nothing that turns me off. This smells like other Vitamin C formulas that I have tried.
Overall, I think it’s really great! My skin feels bright (maybe I’m imagining it though? Placebo effect maybe?). But I’m satisfied with I see in the mirrir. And that’s what counts.
Included in this range are 3 more products, the Potent-C Targeted Spot Brightener,
The Potent C Targeted Spot Brightener is supposed to be for people with problems with discoloration. Since my skin is quite good, I haven’t tried it.
A potent dark spot treatment powered by Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid and advanced skin brightening actives.
The future of Vitamin C has arrived. Potent-C™ Targeted Spot Brightener unleashes the strength of powerful antioxidants and THD Ascorbate, an ultra-stable breakthrough form of Vitamin C that is 50 X more powerful than traditional Vitamin C. Packed with a concentration of 10% THD Ascorbate, this potent spot brightener is amplified by 3% Vitamin E and 2% Ferulic Acid, providing powerful antioxidant benefits. Gwennis and Angelys help reduce and brighten the look of dark spots, while Aloe and Allantoin help soothe the appearance of skin.
Cleanse skin and spot treat affected area twice daily. Must use sunscreen daily to maintain results and prevent future discoloration.
Next, the Eye Cream. I don’t use eye creams on a normal basis (I’m too lazy) and so I passed on this. But I would like to mention that this range focuses on Vitamin C, which is mainly to brighten the skin. If you want to use an anti-aging eye cream, I don’t think this range is for you. This eye cream is for brightening the eye area.
A hydrating eye cream powered by Vitamin C, Vitamin E and Ferulic Acid to help brighten the look of the under eye and reduce the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and crows feet.
The future of Vitamin C has arrived.

Caffeine, Hyaluronic Acid and 3% Phycoderm help improve the look of dark circles, puffiness and crows feet, instantly and over time. Filmexel acts like a second skin to help protect the delicate eye area. Pat around entire eye area, avoiding lids.
And lastly, the Bright & Plump Moisturizer. I really like Peter Thomas moisturizers in general ( I also own the Hungarian Thermal Water Mineral Rich moisturizer and I love it as well), and this one is a great addition to the brand. It has the same scent as the Potent C Serum, and it boasts brightening and anti-aging benefits.
