Peter Thomas Roth has long been a favorite skincare line of mine. I recently tried one of their many body washes – the very refreshing, slightly citrusy Blemish Buffing Beads Body Wash – and I’m in body heaven.

This is a great wash to kick off our hunt for the Best of Summer Beauty Finds…

The PTR skin line is great for people with acne and/or problem skin. Roth himself suffered from problem skin and thus, he understands the frustration we face (pun intended) on a daily basis when forced to choose our products. That’s why I like his line… it works, and it’s pretty decently priced too.

His washes are no exception. The Blemish Buffing Beads Body Wash is a great choice for your summer body wash. After a long, sweaty day lounging poolside in the sun, people with oily skin types are bound to break out – and we’re not talking face break outs…. we’re talking about the neck, back and chest. It’s miserable, annoying and a total pain, and unfortunately, the sun and sweat only make matters worse.

Insert . It contains 1% salicylic acid to help fight minor break outs yet it won’t overdry or irritate. It also has moisturizing beads that release vitamins A, C, and E and pro-vitamin B5 into the skin to moisturize and soothe. And the scent is so summery – a mild, grapefruit-like aroma that is absolutely fresh and delicious!

Basically, the wash exfoliates (very mildly… we wouldn’t exactly call this a true exfoliator) and foams to clean the skin, improving its complexion, while still restoring the your skin’s needed moisture.

It’s everything you could possibly ask for in a body wash (oh, and it has a flip-top… great for easy access in the shower)!!!

PRICE TAG: $22.00 for 18.5 oz (that’s BIG!)
