Cleansers -Peter Thomas Roth -Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel

My experience using this was a 57ml size courtesy of last year's Sephora beauty insider birthday gift. That being said, the little bottle lasted me a decent amount of time as I only use cleanser at night. A small amount poured onto my Clarisonic did the trick to get it into a light lather. I like the peachy scent and the fact that it doesn't dry out my skin despite the AHA/BHA content (I have dry skin but where I live is super humid), but apart from that I can't say it's holy grail or anything. I double cleanse with a cleansing oil or micellar water so not sure how effective it is in removing long wearing makeup. In addition I'm skeptical how exfoliating or anti aging can a cleanser be considering how it doesn't stay long enough on or be absorbed into the skin - it's probably overpriced for what is essentially a foaming cleansing gel.

I bought this product on overstock.com it was only 42$ compared to sephora where it was 80$. I don't think I would purchase it again if could not get it for the overstock.com price. I have been using this in a thin layer nightly after washing my face. Rinse off and use my Benefit Total Moisture after. My skin looks plump and youthful again. My 11s between my eyes have improved after my routine in 2 weeks. Interested to see after the jar is gone what the results will be!

Masks -Peter Thomas Roth -Irish Moor Mud

I received this mask as part of PTR's mask kit. I just used it about 5 minutes ago. My assessment:

Application:
The sample kit comes with a sort of silicone rubber spatula/massage applicator. I find this to be really beneficial as it helps the mask glide on. It has more of a gel consistency and isn't opaque in application, so it can separate when you're putting it on because it also never hardens. I suggest a brush vs your fingers to apply it. I scraped off what was on the top of the cardboard piece when you first buy a product, and that was almost enough to effectively coat my face with a thin layer.

Texture/Feel/Smell:
The texture is a cooling, wet, gel like texture. If you've ever stepped in mud at the bottom of a lake - cool, kinda squishy and slippery - it kind of felt like that (although more luxurious). I loved the cooling feeling that made my skin feel calmed. It wasn't a menthol tingle, it was just a cooling sensation. I did not feel any lactic acid tingle, but I use a lot of exfoliation products and my skin is very used to all of that.

What I noticed immediately, is before I used it I triple washed my face because I had on a full face of makeup + primer + setting spray which I don't usually do and spells pimples for me. My face was red from the washing. After putting this on to help draw out the other gunk, and after washing, it was completely calmed and looked fairly even-toned. I was impressed by that. I would say that my skin also looked clearer.

It did make a mess in my bathroom and was not the easiest to get off. I did appreciate that it never dried to that hard crackled feel.

Results:
Immediate results were pretty good. I'm happy that I have it as part of this pack. and will definitely use it up, but I don't know that it's full-size price worthy.

Eyes -Peter Thomas Roth -Instant Firm Eye

on 12/3/2016 2:52:00 PM

I am super surprised this has never been reviewed on here and I'm the first one reviewing it. Peter Thomas Roth also has this for the overall face, so perhaps others have reviewed the eye product under that. Anyway, this product is something I use daily whenever I'm going out...with makeup or without. First of all, let me tell you what it says on the website:

Firm-A-Tite™ - a trio of instant skin tighteners that temporarily lifts, firms and tightens the appearance of the skin.

Eyeliss™1 - a trio of peptides that work together to help visibly diminish the look of under-eye puffiness.

Eye Regener® - targets the look of bags under the eyes by helping to visibly diminish the appearance of excess fullness.

Argatensyl™ - immediately smoothes and instantly tightens the appearance of skin.

Vitamins C & E - provide anti-oxidant benefits.

Pro Vitamin B5 - helps condition and nourish the look of skin.

Retinyl Palmitate - a form of Vitamin A that is more gentle than retinol.

I have looked online and there are MANY reviews and YouTube postings about this product. You are either going to love it (like I do) or hate it. BUT, before you decide to hate, you MUST practice and take some advice from those of us that are already practiced in it. This isn't rocket science, but some tips will definitely help you.

1. You need just the TINIEST amount of this! I have had this tube for over a year. As expensive as it is (can't even remember....$35?), you only need just a tiny bit.

2. PAT, don't rub this in. Lightly dab it on on the areas you're wanting to see improvement on. For me, it's under the eye. For others, it might be the crows feet area or both. Then give it about 4 minutes to do the work.

3. If you put too much on, it WILL show a white cast under your eye. Don't worry!!!! Just take any silicone or moisturizer you have and lightly dab on the white cast....it disappears. I personally use Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser for this. It's terrible as a pore eraser for me but the silicone base works great for this.

What this does for me: I am 56 years old and look pretty good for my age. However, time doesn't stop and when I wake in the a.m., my eyes can look puffy and/or excessively lined depending on how I slept. I put on my makeup as usual and applying this is one of my last steps. You will not believe how well this works....the lines will disappear and any puffiness is gone. It lasts for most of my work day. The white cast is what most people complain about, but I believe most are making two mistakes: 1) using too much...it takes a TINY amount and should be DABBED on, and 2) when there is a white cast, just dab a moisturizer or silicone product over it to make it disappear.
Note: This is NOT a treatment that promises to erase the lines under your eyes forever!!! It doesn't do that! It is a TEMPORARY fix. If you have puffy eyes in the a.m., this will fix it and by the time it doesn't work anymore, your eyes won't be puffy anyway because you will have been up awhile. If you have lines, this will work for several hours. Not sure how many hours.
I love this stuff....can't do without it. I don't think I'll have to buy any soon because I still have the majority of a tube. But when I do run out, you can bet I'll buy again!!!!

Forgot to mention, bought it at Ulta.

I have normal/sensitive skin and got tiny bumps ALL over my face. It was itchy and red for three of four days. I wanted to like It because I had read it was great and it smell great too. I guess it's too strong for me.


Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -Peter Thomas Roth FirmX Peeling Gel

A gimmick? Maybe. Skincaretainment? Heck yeah. I love seeing those little nasties balling up right beneath my fingers. And it's even more entertaining rubbing them until they're so dry they just fall right off my face on their own. Welcome to the world where it's possible that dead skin cells rain off my face.

Disclaimer: I'm not sure how this product works at all. I tried it out by covering my hand with plastic and then rubbing it between my plastic-covered fingers. It didn't ball up as quickly, if it even balled up at all. The plastic wrap was getting too wrinkly to tell so I just gave up and lost interest.

But you can already tell upon the first use that the gel is not all pure gel, it has little specks in it, which could be whatever is balling up. My very unscientific and untrustworthy theory is that your skin absorbs the moisture from the gel and leaves behind the little white specks to cohere together, which forms a skin-like solid to physically exfoliate your face by adhering to your loose skin cells and letting them join in on the good ol' clumping party. BAM! Slight moisturizing and exfoliating in one! That would explain the smoothness I experience afterwards.

Whatever it is, I don't think it does absolutely nothing, judging on how smooth my skin is afterwards, and how effectively it pulled off my flaking skin cells that had lost their personal battles against the winter cold and tea tree oil. But I don't think it magically peels off a layer of skin too.

I wouldn't buy it again because it is ridiculously expensive, but I also don't feel guilty about buying it in the first place. After a long day, sometimes you just gotta sit down with your friendly neighborhood Peter gel and pamper yourself with a nice face massage. On that note though, I don't think even importing the famous Cure Aqua Gel (which probably inspired this entire peeling-skin-gel thing to take off) would be more expensive than this. e.l.f. just came out with a peeling gel at the beautiful price tag of $10, so I would suggest you give that a whirl before trying this one.

I would not suggest this for sensitive skin or people who are already exfoliating lots in their week.

I purchased this product hoping it would remove my dry flaking skin from Retinol use.
I found it easy to use, and my skin did feel immediately smooth afterwards;, however, a couple of days later my skin feels like it has had a chemical burn. Especially around my chin area, (like orange peel texture.) I then have to use lots of heavy duty moisturisers to fix my damaged skin.
This has happened every time i have used this product, so i will not use again.
I do not believe it is dead skin rolling around, as some reviewers have stated, as lots of this gimmicky products are on the market.
As reference, i have normal to dry skin, and my skin can handle some pretty harsh products, just not this one.
i now use it on my legs before exfoliating, and i have found a product that really does exfoliate my flaky patches Dermalogica's daily microfoliant.

I really wanted to love this mask but it just burned too much. I think it's not for sensitive skin. I wish I could tolerate it because reviews are great.

Moisturizers -Peter Thomas Roth -Laser-Free Regenerator Moisturizing Gel-Cream

on 11/17/2016 9:33:00 PM

I love this product. I buy it at a discount on ebay to avoid the very high retail price. It's so hard for me to find an effective moisturizer that doesn't break me out and isn't harsh on my sensitive, middle-aged skin. It definitely improves my skin tone, and makes for a wonderful foundation primer. Also due to its viscous texture you don't need much to cover your whole face and neck.

Bought this due to people raving about this mask. The only sort of similar category in terms of price that I have tried before was the Hollywood Glam Mask. Personally I think this one has more positive effects on my skin

Burned a bit when applying, can feel the sting and my face goes red, but after washing off it feels instantly refreshed, and my husband says my face looks so radiant and glowing (especially in the morning) and I sort of noticed that too but I could be biased X-D

The only downside is the price

So yes I have been using this for 4 months and loving the results. I bought it off amazon though so next time I will purchase it from an actual makeup shop like Sephora :D

Moisturizers -Peter Thomas Roth -Mega-Rich Anti-Aging Cellular Creme

on 11/12/2016 9:10:00 PM

Two words: Holy. Grail. I've been using this for awhile now and I will use it until they stop selling this product. And this is coming from a skin care addict, I've tried so many creams, lotions, moisturizers and this takes the cake. I always come back to this creme. Some advice, this is not a day moisturizer. It is a night only because it is on the greasy side, not so greasy that it will come off on your pillow, but it's not so compatible with makeup I find. But because of this, it lasts a lot longer if you just use it at night and you get your money's worth. It is pretty expensive but like I tell my clients, skin care is definitely something to invest in. It's never going to be something you regret. This stuff is amazing for all skin types as well even acne prone. I first got this as a sample when I bought a mask from PTH, and I was hesitant to use this in fear of it breaking me out, but all it did was improve my skin and slow down my aging process. 10/10 product will repurchase indefinitely.

Masks -Peter Thomas Roth -Cucumber Gel Masque

on 11/6/2016 7:03:00 PM

I don't know what possessed me to buy the PTR sample set of masks, because so far I've had 2 out of 2 disappointments. The Cucumber Gel Masque did absolutely nothing for me. It did not cool, calm or moisturize. At best, it didn't inflame, irritate or dry out my skin, plus it had a pleasant, neutral scent. However, I would have the same, if not better, effect for a fraction of the price by using Banana Boat Aloe After Sun Gel as a mask. Plus the Banana Boat product comes in a squeeze bottle, unlike the unsanitary jar packaging of the PTR mask. I may try the Cucumber Gel Masque as a sleeping mask, as suggested by some of the other reviewers, but I am not expecting much. I would never purchase the full size of this masque, and can't recommend it in any way. Huge thumbs down!

I purchased this a while back and it worked wonderfully! I used it about three times a week and it worked really well to unclog pores and exfoliate my combination, acne prone skin. I stopped using it for a while due to lack of time but recently picked it up again. I didn't get the same warning feeling I normally used to but I didn't think anything of it. The next morning, I noticed a small patch of vermilya on my right cheek right where I had put the mask on the night before, as well as a small patch on my chin where the mask was also placed. I'm not prone to vermilya, and I'm not sure if it was just a coincidence or if maybe the mask expired? (I purchased it maybe two months ago). Unfortunately, I won't risk this again. Smells amazing though!

I have the five pack of masks and the pumpkin mask is my favorite but this one is really nice. I like to use it on the days my skin needs extra moisture. It seems to help with improving the texture of my skin by making it smooth and glowy. I haven't noticed a scent so if it does have one its minimal. It doesn't irritate the skin or cause breakouts.
