Review: Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream (Baby Soft & Supple)

Peter Thomas Roth’s Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream is a product I tried with glowing (pun-intended) results as a trial in a starter set and recently discovered it for a heavily discounted price online as well (in its full size version).

As we all are, I was looking for a cream at a reasonable price point for sensitive skin that would leave my skin feeling smooth and soft, and found it- with an included discount!

With a prior affinity for the brands collection of hydrating masks that leave the skin looking radiant, PTR has failed to disappoint in the skincare category, and remains suitable for those of varying skin types- including different ages and concerns.

The concentrated cream is 30% hyaluronic acid, and offers 72 hour moisture hold. Designed to treat signs of dryness, dull or sallow skin, uneven tone and texture, and anti-aging concerns, it leaves the skin dewy and supple.

While the texture itself is quite lightweight, the product is extremely hydrating and suitable for even very dry skin or those suffering from dry patches.

Upon application, the texture feels silky, lightweight, and skin immediately feels refreshed, hydrated, and “baby soft,” for lack of a better term.

Right now, Amazon is selling the product for a sharply discounted rate (genuine and confirmed, not counterfeit), so fans of the cream or those looking to try it out for the first time can purchase it for $40 (rather than the typical +$50 price point).

This review will cover some main features on the cream, some positives and negatives to bear in mind prior to purchase, a look at some key ingredients in the formulation and corresponding skincare benefits, and a final verdict, the help you make a more informed purchasing choice prior to any official point of sale.

Review: Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream

Peter Thomas Roth’s Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream has become a cult-favorite and popular quite quickly amongst varying age groups and those with different complexions (including sensitive skin) for good reason- this is definitely a lightweight but very hydrating moisturizer that leaves the skin looking glowing and restored, while feeling soft and supple.

It can be used in the AM or PM, and works perfectly prior to makeup application for a smoother delivery and more radiant finish.

Even with very sensitive and acne-prone skin, I experienced no reactivity whatsoever to this moisturizer and only reaped wonderful benefits with use- including improved radiance and glow, a smoother and more even complexion, improved evenness in tone and texture, and an overall more youthful appearing aesthetic.

Following use the skin looks incredibly supple and refreshed, and pore size is also noticeably decreased in appearance. The texture is lightweight, absorbs very quickly, and feels incredibly nourishing and luxurious to apply. The feeling upon application is so good that you generally have to resist the urge to overuse the product.

Formulated without the use of any parabens, sulfates, or harsh chemical additives, it is also safe and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive (and did not cause any redness, reaction, breakouts, or reactivity even with sensitive and acne-prone skin).


For those with oily or combination complexions, the moisturizer also helps to restore balance and control natural oil production, leading to a more natural and resurfaced surface layer of the skin.

After continual daily use for a couple of weeks, I noticed visible improvements and received compliments about my skin and overall appearance (with people generally asking if I had changed my hair, etc.), and ultimately my skin has never felt softer.

If you’re extremely parched, you can add in a drop of oil or use an oil or serum product beforehand if desired, but this generally works well as a standalone product. If you’re seeking something for dry or imbalanced skin that needs an instant refresher, especially if you are prone to sensitivities, this is an excellent option for a daily go-to moisturizer.

This product also pairs well with Thayers Witch Hazel Toner and Tatcha’s Deep Cleanse.

For those of us with very sensitive skin or who just may be concerned about what we are applying to our skin topically and fans of clean product formulations, understanding the ingredients in skin products can be as important as checking labels or understanding ingredients in the foods you buy from grocery stores, eat at restaurants, or purchase via meal delivery subscription services.

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream Pros & Cons

With this product, it is actually difficult to come up with many negatives or downsides with use, as I found visible benefits and the cream is soft, nourishing and gentle. It also has a clean formulation that’s ideal for all skin types, especially if you’re sensitive. The only downsides are if you happen to experience any allergy (as with any topical product), or if you still feel the cost is too high for the category, depending on personal budget and preference.

With that in mind, here are some main pros and cons to bear in mind prior to purchase:


  • The product has a very clean formulation with high quality ingredients and is free of any sulfates, parabens, or harsh chemical additives
  • Safe and suitable for all skin types: including sensitive skin, dry skin, acne-prone types and combination/oily
  • Cruelty-free company: company does not test on any animals, use any animal products during its manufacturing processes, or in any product formulations (for more cruelty-free companies click on the link to read about vegan brand Milk Makeup!)
  • The cream did not cause any redness, irritation, breakouts, reactivity, or sensitivities even with acne-prone skin that is sensitive to topical products (this does not mean that individual allergies do not exist, as with any product)
  • The formulation is lightweight yet very hydrating, and leaves the skin feeling and looking soft, smooth, glowing, and more radiant following use
  • For sallow or dull skin: users can expect a more luminous complexion following use almost immediately
  • Treats even very dry skin quite well, and leaves the skin feeling smooth, even, soft, and firm
  • Anti-aging benefits: over time with continual daily use, users can expect to see improvements in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and signs of sun damage
  • Works for both day and night, and helps achieve a more radiant finish if used prior to makeup application, while feeling soft and luxurious in the evening when applied before bed
  • Helps skin appear more plumped, supple, and silky (the texture itself is also quite silky)
  • The formulation is packed with antioxidants to support overall skin health and help with preventative anti-aging benefits, as well as creating a suitable environmental barrier to prevent from harmful sun and pollution damage
  • The cream is currently available at a discount in comparison to retail price, which is a rarity in the cosmetics industry in general, especially for a very popular product


  • Even with the discount, some may find the $40 price point too high for the moisturizer or skincare category in general- however it is important to bear in mind that a small amount really does go a long way and it should last several months, in conjunction with incredible benefits with use (additionally, for those with very dry skin: this may eliminate the need for other products such as rich oils or serums and can be used as a standalone treatment)
  • As with any topical treatment, cream, or serum- a small minority of users reported product allergy (so especially for the most sensitive skin types, spot testing is always highly recommended)
