Masks -Peter Thomas Roth -Blue Marine Algae Intense Hydrating Mask

I feel like this is really a misunderstood product. I have skin that is only mildly oily (though it used to be very oily) and breakout prone. My skin gets dehydrated due to acne control products and simply not ingesting enough water. Getting enough moisture in my skin without greasiness. This mask does the trick like nothing else. I end up with skin that is plumper and soothed. Any irritation or redness I had is gone, and my skin feels truly hydrated. However, if you are looking for skin that feels *moisturized* though, this won't do it. This is what I like about it - my face feels so clean. NO clogging or greasiness, just plumped, hydrated skin deep past the surface. After removing it, I apply a moisturizer, any moisturizer, and it's better absorbed and my skin looks smooth and glowy, If I apply a serum, it absorbs more evenly and quickly. I have used to after a purifying or clarifying mask to soothe and hydrate skin.

I really like to use it before a big event, because it makes makeup application smoother and longer lasting but like ti just as much after a day in the sun or a rugged workout when my skin is suffering from sun, salt, and heat.

It smells great, and I have left it on up to a couple of hours with nothing but a bit of extra hydration, but no negative effects. It did tingle a bit when it went on, and I almost washed it off, because why does a hydrating mask tingle? But it goes away, and instead leaves my skin feeling really soothed.

This is the only mask I've ever really loved, and it's fantastic. I just caution people to not expect skin to feel like does when using a moisturizing mask because it won't do that. You'll want to use it with a moisturizer, but the effects you will see and feel are amazing

Moisturizers -Peter Thomas Roth -GREEN RELEAF Therapeutic Sleep Cream Skin Protectant

My skin is loving this! This is my first time trying out a product to sleep in. My skin is significantly calmed when I wake up, my complexion is brighter. I've only been using this for a week and I already see my skin benefiting from this product. I happen to like the slight grit to it, almost like a sleep mask rather than just a cream. My skin is crazy sensitive to retinol but the plant based retinol this product features along with the colloidal oatmeal fits my skin just right. My active acne doesn't get aggravated, my skin feels soothed, as the product advertises. I love the multiple benefits that normally I'd need multiple products to have. The smell doesn't bother me, I think it's earthy and I like that there isn't any crazy fragrance additions to try to make it more "appealing". Will definitely continue to use this!

Absolutely love this product. Not a huge fan of the dropper, but the serum itself is excellent.

I use this serum every night. Almost finish my first bottle and will consider buy this product again. This serum seems to help minimize my pores and improve skin quality overall.

Moisturizers -Peter Thomas Roth -Potent-C Bright & Plump Moisturizer

on 1/10/2019 12:41:00 PM

Overall, I really like the PETER THOMAS ROTH Potent-C Bright & Plump Moisturizer. The formula is pretty amazing and full of beneficial ingredients such as vitamin c in the form of Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate , ferulic acid, vitamin e, and many other antioxidants. This is a pretty rich moisturizer but since I have dry skin I really appreciate a good, beneficial, creamy moisturizer. Even with my dry skin I found this to be a little too rich for me to use in the daytime. My only real disappointment in this moisturizer is the jar packaging, and the fact that it is a little pricey. If you have very oily skin you might find this to be too emollient, especially for daytime use. I love that this is fragrance free and does not contain any denatured alcohols.

lol Sephora deleted my review for being too "honest". This really is the only place to go for unfiltered reviews. Anyway on to the cream .I was super intreated in this launch mostly because of the melatonin I wondered if it would maybe help me sleep. I don't think it did. This product seems like it's a lab sample. Its very gritty which I don't totally mind because I do like the effect it just feels super unrefined and strange. It has four dyes to make it green which is totally unnecessary. It does have a funny smell but that does not bother me as it is natural and goes away... this product does not contain added fragrance so I can deff live with it. Finally while I would still take this in the current packaging over a jar, the pump is awkward it's not big enough and hard to get the product out. I think this product needs a bit of fine tuning seems like a rushed launch to get in on the coming CBD/HEMP fad. All that said I don't think this is a bad product it's not ineffective I do think my skin feels calm while using the problem is it's not a pleasure to use.

This was a bust for me. It feels really nice going on, like a really light water cream, and makes the skin feel really soft. It was decently hydrating too.
Its downfall was that it broke me out in huge cystic pimples after having clear skin almost 6 months. This was the only new thing I added to my routine so it definitely was this. Not trying it again and I will return the travel size asap.

Mascara -Peter Thomas Roth -Lashes To Die For The Mascara

on 12/26/2018 7:43:00 PM

THIS is my HG mascara. I have long, thin, stick-straight lashes that won't hold a curl without extreme measures. I layer this on top of L'Oreal Voluminous waterproof mascara and it works wonders. It could be used alone if your lashes are a bit thicker. It's somewhat volumizing, but I use it more for definition and curl hold (It'll give even your tiniest of lashes some love - and without clumps!). I took off 2 lippies for the price and the ugly packaging. It's not cheap or pretty - but none of the Peter T Roth products really are. It is however, definitely worth the cost.

Moisturizers -Peter Thomas Roth -Max All Day Moisture Defense SPF 30

on 12/19/2018 2:21:00 AM

This is a true sunscreen. Thick and white with a traditional sunscreen smell. I think this would be a great product to have if you needed a true sunscreen but it’s too heavy for me to wear under my make up. It’s does absorb nicely (for a sunscreen) and the smell goes away pretty quickly. I’ll use it for the beach but not everyday use.

I've been using this for about a year. It's expensive but it's worth it. I wash my face and pat it dry , then I apply a nickel size amount to the palm of my hand and dap it all over my face with my finger. I massage it into my skin all over until it balls up. I then rinse with like warm water and pat dry. I love how my skin feels for days afterwards. My makeup goes on smoother. Some people think it's a scam and it's the product balling up, but whatever... all I know what whatever it is it's working for me. I use it twice a week which seems to be enough for me. I really like this and will continue to repurchase.

Scrubs -Peter Thomas Roth -Botanical Buffing Beads

HATED this scrub!!! Where do I even start? First off, this was not scrubby at all, I felt like it did absolutely nothing to exfoliate my skin. Since it didn't exfoliate, I started breaking out. Now I hadn't broken out in MONTHS, and then this comes along and ruins that. As another reviewer previously pointed out, there is very little "botanical" in this very chemical scrub. Also the packaging on this sucked. I couldn't control how much product came out! So I either got too much or too little. UGH. I expected so much more from PTR.


Masks -Peter Thomas Roth -Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

foto

I have been using REN’s Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask as my “peel” and while I’ve enjoyed it because it leaves my skin glowing, I wanted to try something a bit difference.

This mask is the color of canned pumpkin, and smells like it, too. It comes in a giant tub. It has a jelly like consistency and interspersed are tiny microdermabrasion crystals. I put a little dollop on my face and within seconds, it burns a little and feels warm (more so if I have used retinoids or lactic acid recently). I leave it on for about five minutes, then gently scrub, taking advantage of the crystals, for an additional minute. Then I rinse off and my skin looks clean, radiant, even-toned, and GLOWING! I like to use this twice a week, usually before I want to look my best!

I got this at Costco.com for around 35 bucks and was astonished by the size. Seems weird that a face mask is so generously sized at FIVE ounces. I swear, this thing will last me years. I have been using it twice weekly for three months and the jar could still pass off as unused! You only need a half grape sized dollop for your whole face. This makes the mask an EXCELLENT value.

Masks -Peter Thomas Roth -Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask

foto

I am done using more than half of the product in this tub. The mask is in the form of a gel and smells like roses. No surprises there.
As a 15-minute-leave-on-mask, I do think that this mask is not very effective. I have sensitive and dehydrated skin and putting this mask on for 15 minutes does nothing for me in terms of hydration. My skin still feels dehydrated. However, when I use it as an overnight mask by applying a thin layer of it on my face, the mask works magically and the effects are obvious. My skin just feels and looks hydrated and healthier. I have been using it for a while now and I do think it helps with evening out the skin tone. Also, I find that the results of applying this mask are better when I use it in conjunction with the Pumpkin Enzyme mask. So, after exfoliating using that mask, I apply the Rose Stem Cell mask overnight.

Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads

on 11/20/2018 1:50:00 PM

This is without a doubt a holy grail. Why? Because my 40-year old skin responds to a lack of use with dry skin, clogged pores, wrinkles and dullness. I ran out of these some weeks ago, thinking, they don't make such a BIG difference and there are alternatives (Advanced Night Repair, Vichy Serum, The Ordinary Serums, Mario Badescou Enzyme Gel, etc.).
Boy was I wrong! I recently had my photo taken with colleagues: My skin didn't look as nice as it usually does, rather lifeless, although I had taken the same effort to do my makeup. The pads seem to polish the top layer of my skin like nothing else and moisturize intensely at the same time. I believed Potion 50 by Biologique Recherche to do the same but it rather dried out my combination skin. If you are looking after a dramatic difference, this is it: I use it every other night, it keeps my pores as small as possible and hydrates like nobodies business. A cheaper alternative that comes close is Ordinary's Peeling Solution Mask (AHA 30%) but these pads are way easier to use.
