Review: Peter Thomas Roth Mega Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Crème

Mega Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Crème…try saying that one three times fast.

Peter Thomas Roth is yet another one of those brands that I’ve walked by at Sephora a million times, but never tried. Well, I had the chance to try a few products recently, so I am no longer a PTR virgin.

The Mega Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Crème (MRIAACC going forward, for the sake of this post), is a seriously intense moisturizer…as the name suggests.

First, here’s some of the marketing spiel: “Collagen and elastin help tone, smooth and lift skin reducing the appearance of fine lines and the severity of deep wrinkles. Skin becomes smoother, more hydrated, firmer and regains a more youthful looking appearance.”

The product is meant to be used morning and night, but as I mentioned in my last moisturizer review, I only wear moisturizer with SPF during the day, so I’ve been using the MRIAACC as a night cream. The scent is nothing to report on (which I consider a good thing) and it is one of the thickest facial moisturizers I’ve ever tried. The consistency almost reminds me of a body butter.

I’ve been using the MRIAACC for a couple of weeks, and I can definitely say that my face is nice and moisturized when I wake up in the morning. However, I think this is probably best for the colder months — when the temps went up last week, I started feeling like it was a little too heavy at times. But if you’re someone with seriously dry skin and are looking for something anti-aging, I’d highly recommend MRIAACC. I don’t know that you’ll find a richer cream out there.

At $85 for a 1.7 oz. container, this is definitely an investment (although by no means the priciest on the market). But if you have the right skin type for it, I think you’ll be very pleased with the results.

Have you tried any Peter Thomas Roth products that you love?

     I love every PTR product I’ve tried! The Lashes to Die For mascara is my favorite and I love the un-wrinkle eye cream and the concealer, super natural and doesn’t settle into my fine lines. His pads are fantastic too, the un-wrinkle pads and the gentle complexion corrector pads especially.

       Note taken! I definitely want to try the pads, and I might have to check out the mascara….always looking for that holy grail :)

      Thanks for the heads up on the other PTR products.  I’ll have to try the concealer and complexion corrector pads.  But first I’ll go get a sample of the PTR cream from Sephora to try.
