Peter Thomas Roth Anti-mattifying gel

Recommended Posts

The price of Peter Thomas Roth Anti-mattifying gel is getting a bit out of hand now! Does anybody know of a good place to get it at a reasonable price?

 

Anyone know of any cheaper alternatives? I know HIS are looking into doing there own brand of aftercare stuff, but in the meantime...

I don't see any benefit from PTR either....

 

Leaves a residue on the head which is only going to reflect light. That - or the residue is sebum and PTR isn't stopping the sebum coming through....

 

Head still shines - it's inevitable.

I've posted on this topic before a few times, in short I've tried everything from the cheapest to the most expensive and for me there is a clear winner, it is vichy ideal soleil spf 50.  

 

It is a sun cream, it comes in 50 ml bottles (usually costs around £15) it gives an amazing and long lasting matte effect while also protecting smp from fading due to the sun, ptr doesn't come close and most of the others I've tried look matte at first but after 1-2 hours becomes shiny, vichy lasts all day, just put a small amount on your head and your good to go.  

 

The cheapest places to buy it are usually either pharmeden or escentual, it's currently only £8.62 per bottle from pharmeden, escentual are £16 per bottle but now and again they sell it for half price.  When I buy it from pharmeden.co.uk it is sent from Holland and takes about 5-6 days to arrive in the U.K I order 3 bottles at a time which costs £5 postage to UK mainland, these 3 bottles last me over 4 months

 

I use it all year round not just as a sun cream, it's the only matte cream I'd recommend for smp and I've tried them all.  Here's the link for pharmeden (currently 50% off) http://www.pharmeden.co.uk/suncare-c8/women-men-c29/face-c146/vichy-vichy-ideal-soleil-spf50-face-velvety-sun-cream-50ml-p881

 

It also come in spf 30 but I have only ever used spf 50.

 

It is more expensive on amazon (£12.42 per bottle) but I'll leave this amazon link here as there are nothing but positive reviews on there for it https://www.amazon.co.uk/VICHY-SOLAR-EMULSION-FACIAL-SPF50-50ML/dp/B007FNUIJI/ref=sr_1_1_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1464790568&sr=8-1&keywords=vichy+spf+50

 

Honestly this is the only cream for us smp guys who want a long lasting matte look, protection from sun/fading, value for money etc trust me you will love this stuff.

I got some of this stuff for my holiday in august. You use it all year round ? It's a great solution if you don't find it causes any fading ? I'd just be worried about the ingredients ? How long have you been using it. ? How much you use a day. Thanks for a great post.really interested as this stuff is cheap really compared to ptr .

I found this product to be non effective - in fact it actually made my head more greasy/shiny

 

Unless your preferred anti-shine product contains SPF not sure how it can be compatible given that to protect your SMP throughout the year you ought to be using a SPF at all times.

 

Applying anti-shine on top of any SPF will counter the effectiveness of the SPF (or so I am led to believe)

Have had SMP now for one year. I've tried a few different matte lotions. My advice to you would be to look around. There's other good options for much better prices. I have been using Headblade Headlube Matte moisturizing lotion. I have really enjoyed it. I does a great job of taking the shine off and moisturizing.
