Fans of Peter Thomas Roth's therapeutic skincare products attribute their wrinkle- and acne-free complexions to Roth's powerful line of skin problem solvers.

In particular, Roth's Un-Wrinkle collection has a huge following -- its cocktail of anti-aging peptides smooth expression lines, like the vertical ones that appear on your forehead.

His de-aging blend includes Matrixyl 3000 to boost collagen, vitamins A,C & E to repair damage, and Syn-Ake, the neuropeptide that relaxes wrinkles by mimicking the effects of snake venom.

This week Roth is introducing his newest product -- the Un-Wrinkle Primer. "I spent a really long time figuring out what our customers want," Roth told StyleList. And what they wanted was something that would instantly fill in wrinkles, make foundation go on smoother and last longer, mattify, and give long term skincare benefits.

As with all of Roth's products, "You don't have to worry about breaking out. Everyone who works here has oily skin so we're always aware of that." In fact, an oil-free makeup primer is great for oily-skinned gals whose makeup starts to slip down their faces halfway through the day.

A makeup primer can't turn back the clock 15 years, but if you're wearing layers of stuff on your face all day anyway, you might as well be using products with anti-aging benefits, right?

Every little bit helps!
