When i was in the states i decided to have a look in Sephora Las Vegas, to see if there was anything else to add to my already massive American beauty haul, And i came across Peter Thomas Roth mask sampler set, i had seen this in the uk on various sites and had meant to purchase previously so i added it to my basket.
Peter Thomas Roth
“Peter Thomas Roth’s passion for skin care is derived from his quest to find effective products to treat his own personal skin care concerns. Initially his primary issue was acne and as time went on anti-aging issues as well. His interests eventually grew into a desire to find the best tools to combat acne, the many signs of aging, as well as protecting the skin from sun damage. His mission: to combine effective and potent ingredients with advanced technology”- text from peterthomasroth.com
I like the concept behind the brand, the packaging is fun and fresh and the price market is about right considering the potency of the products (£24)
The Mask sampler set is a beautiful rainbow of colours with 6 different masks to treat different skincare concerns, I can actually use every single one of these masks! which is a first, usually in a collection there is always one that my skin reacts to.
Pumpkin Enzyme Mask
I have mentioned enzymes in a previous post as an alternative to physical scrubs, this pumpkin one definitely packs a punch, it contains an enzyme,(pumpkin) a chemical exfoliant (Alpha hydroxy acid) and some really small aluminium oxide crystals to physically buff those cells away, you will feel a tingle and my face goes red for a good 5 minutes. But this is what you expect from an enzyme mask, i only leave it on for 5 minutes as this is enough for me, my skin feels very soft afterwards but i always follow up with a second mask, as i have removed the dead dull cells its time to put some goodies onto the new exposed skin.
Cucumber Gel Detoxifying Hydrating Mask
This mask not only contains cucumber but also papaya, chamomile and Aloe vera to name a few, this mask is aimed at soothing hydrating and removing toxins, this is great to use on areas that are sensitive, the texture is a gel and slowly absorbed into the skin, great for when your skin has been in the sun all day, or for those with delicate skin. (i put this on at night and sleep in it if i have been in the sun all day and skin feels little tight).
24K Gold Luxury Lift and Firm Mask
This anti ageing mask gives the skin a lift and glow, 24k gold has been appearing in many face masks in the last year, I have to admit this is my least favourite mask it did lift my face and make the skin look firmer, but it did also make it a little dry, so i would follow up with an additional mask or not necessarily use this mask post pumpkin peel, i did have a better result when i used it as a quick fix before a night out without exfoliating. The texture is a creamy gel and you won’t look like a gold statue as you only need a small amount and a thin layer.
Blue Marine Algae Intense Hydrating Mask
This beautiful gel mask will nourish and hydrate dry skin, this light gel texture is very easily absorbed into the skin, and is even suitable for congested and oily skin like mine as it is not heavy. As i don’t generally have dry skin this is one i use again after a day in the sun or on my cheeks when the winter arrives (definitely coming out this week) i have slept in this mask whilst on holiday to give me skin a good drink, and i also applied this prior to the 10 hour flight back to the uk, have to say this kept my skin hydrated but not oily.
Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask
This is a black mask and i mean black!, it helps draw our impurities and decongest the skin, as well as minimising pore size. Great for when your breaking out! this is a weekly staple in my skincare routine and doesn’t leave your skin tight or sore, the mask is a thick black cream but unlike some mud masks this does not dry hard fairly easy to remove but you will need to ensure there is none left in your hairline otherwise your going to get some nice black stains on your pillowcase. i love to use this on my chin and nose to help keep the pores clear.
Rose Stem Cell Bio Repair Mask
Stem cells are a great way to help repair the signs of ageing, this delicate rose mask is beautifully fragranced without being over powering, this mask also delivers nourishment to the skin making the skin appear fuller and more radiant. I like to use this on areas that are starting to show the signs of ageing and areas that are dry. After coming back from holiday its a must for me!. I also used this mask before i got married in Las Vegas as it plumped out the lines and gave my skin lovely dewy glow.
This mask sampler set has a great selection of masks to treat an array of skincare concerns, the product sizes are also cabin friendly (14ml) so you can add one or two to your hand luggage when you go on holiday. The masks are very powerful and a fantastic way to try a brand without the big investment of larger size products. I am really glad i purchased this set as it gave me a chance to try a cult beauty brand and I have to say i am really impressed, if the rest of the Peter Thomas Roth products are as good as these i look forward to experimenting with more products within the brand.
