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

I got this as part of the maskoholic set. I have oily skin, so I don't need a mask to hydrate dry skin, but I do like to use heavy moisturizers and rich hydrating masks in winter or after I've done a rough exfoliation.

The mask has a cold gel-like consistency when you put in on your skin. Personally I prefer a rich cream feeling, but some may like this because it is 'refreshing'. It does leave my skin feeling super soft, smoothed and soothed, it helped calm some redness too, but as i said i have oily skin so i don't notice a difference in terms of hydrating dry skin.

Overall, this is a nice treat, but i don't feel like it did anything essential or unique. I will likely keep it since it came as part of the mask set, but i wouldn't buy it again on its own.

First, I recommend using this in the shower. Steam supposedly helps enzymes do their job and the only way I've found to get this completely rinsed off and residue free is in the shower. Also, don't let the price scare you off - this jar lasts forever, even with regular use. I do wish it came in a more hygienic tube, though. I feel like this product temporarily brightens my skin, but otherwise I don't see much benefit and will probably move on once my jar is empty.

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

OOPS - I didn't know we were supposed to RINSE these off! I've used them about 5-6 times without rinsing and didn't even notice it to be a problem! Hmmm.....I guess my skin is used to the acids and whatnot. I didn't suffer any effect by not rinsing!!!

I'm not sure I would repurchase these due to price but they do feel really nice going on. They do not tingle on me at all and actually have some moisturizing aspects to them which I like. Each pad is well saturated.

Jury is out on whether these are really doing much for my skin but they are definitely not hurting. They feel comfortable on my dry-ish 45 year old skin.

PTR's Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads have become a staple in my skincare routine, so naturally I have high hopes where their other products are concerned. This is just not a hydrating mask, it kind of sits on the skin and dries down rather quickly, and I don't even have dry skin so it usually doesn't take much moisture for a product to satisfy.

It's not irritating to the skin and the gel does have a slight cooling effect, but when I washed it off it left no discernible difference in my skin. I'm not a hater, but really, these masks aren't cheap folks! When I have sheet masks from the 99 cent store that perform better, it's an eye-opener.

As much as I like some other products from this brand, and I most likely will use this mask up because it's on hand, I'm not at a place in my life where I can spend over $50 for a product that isn't making a dramatic difference in my skin (was I ever? Who is?) So, it's a pass from me.

I received this free as part of the Sephora Beauty Insider birthday gift. It's just an OK gel masque. I like to alternate masks every other night and what I like about it is that it's very lightweight and refreshing. I can imagine this would be nice to take along a beach holiday as a bit of after sun relief. Is it hydrating? Well if you slap a lot on your face, tissue off the excess it seems enough to skip the moisturizer (bear in mind where I live is super humid though). Is it detoxifying as it claims? Well I can't really judge that. I had no adverse impact using this nor any real benefits. Not something I would spend money on when I'm sure there are a bunch of cheaper, more effective mask alternatives.

I use this mask before I go to sleep when my skin is really dehydrated and dry from treatments, and it works well for me. I exfoliate well and then put on this mask for 30 minutes, remove it with a damp cloth and immediately follow with serum and moisturizer. It makes my skin supple and plumped again. It's just a great way to make your moisturizing routine more efficient!

It is a quite lightweight hydrator, jelly like in consistency face gel. Very hydrating, feels great on skin when applied. It supposed to sooth, calm, detox and hydrate your skin. I use it every other night or day and i can say it does it all. Works best when used in addition of cucumber mask and eye depuffer.

I had high hopes for this mask. However, I broke me out the next day. I got small fluid filled pimples plus some clogged pores. I feel the scrubbing did not do well for my acne prone sensitive skin. I think it will be better for mature skin. Also, I felt it left a layer on top of my skin after washing. I will just give it to my mother.

I love this mask. It applies easily and it's not a thick and heavy mask. It also rinses off really clean. After 10 minutes my skin feels nice- clean. It does not sting, or irritate sensitive skin. It does not have a noticeable scent. My skin looks and feels much better after using this. This may just be my favorite of the 6 masks. No, I still believe the gold mask is my favorite but this one is a close second.

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

I'll admit it: I bought into the novelty of this item. And? My skin is the better for it!

Lately I've been getting small bumps along the jaw line and one GIANT cyst on my cheek. Not pretty. I had heard of this peel somewhere, can't recall where, and decided to give it a shot about four weeks ago.

Applied to dry skin this stuff feels like cetaphil mixed with something gritty, nothing sharp or anything, and spreads pretty easy across the face. After 1 treatment I was hooked. After 8? Hopelessly devoted.

It has no smell that I can really detect which is great. I personally prefer doing a very thorough facial message with this product- really work it in and boost circulation as well- and it kind of dissipates or rather rolls into a thousand tiny balls the more you rub. Besides the tiny flesh trapping balls it never feels like I have to wash anything off my face, which is great, but my skin is always more luminous after using this stuff.

I was originally using it every other day but, as I'm also using Stridex, it was really drying me out! So after one day of angry red skin I decided to make this a Sunday, Wednesday treat for myself.

This product is pretty awesome and for me it's a 10/10!!!!

I have pale skin (NC15) and both times I tried this mask, it left a slight orange color on my skin. Toner helped remove it (yes the cotton ball was light orange), but how many times can you reapply toner? My skin felt smooth, but orange is a no no.

IMO, the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask is PTR's best face mask. I've tried every single PTR mask and this one does everything it claims. I like the Cucumber Gel Mask for hydrating but that's basically all it does. I use the Pumkin Enzyme mask when my skin needs a serious decongesting. We are talking breakouts and just total dullness. This is a strong AHA mask and every time I use it, I have to endure a strong stinging sensation. If you have very sensitive skin, I would probably skip this one because it's very strong. I leave this mask on for about 5 minutes and rinse with Luke warm and cold water. It does leave my skin red immediately after use so best to use at night time. My skin really does appear "resurfaced" and smoother when I use this mask once a week. Love this one!

A lot of people seem to not like this mask, but I do. I don't follow the directions, I don't rinse it off, I use it overnight. No burning as some others have mentioned, does not bother my skin at all. I like it, and as to aloe vera gel being the same, I don't know, but probably wouldn't risk it, at least for me.

Treatments (Face) -Peter Thomas Roth -Max Complexion Correction Pads

Been using PTR's Max Correction Pads for a year now. Am on my 6th tub now and I believe many here have shared about the scent, how you can save by cutting them into half etc, so I won't repeat that but I'll share how it SAVED MY ACNE and other plus points. 1) I have cystic acne on my chin, all over both my cheeks in Jan 2016. Started PTR in early March and recovered from acne in May. In a month, there were no new acne surfacing, my acne spots reduced to a dot and lightened. 2) Didn't stop and continued using because I realized when I stop my acne comes bit by bit again so I added it to my skincare routine permanently as a toner before any serum. 3) My blackheads on my nose reduced and it's been a year I hadn't had any facial to remove them because there was none! // PLUS POINTS: it removes make up residue that my make up wipes + cleanser didn't (meaning double Cleansing didn't remove it!) AND it gives my face a natural radiant look as if I had a peel yesterday, everyday. Not boasting but true. ADDITION: Used the PTR De-Spot Skin Brightening Corrector for my acne spots and freckles and it lightened so much. So it's Max Cleansing Pads first then De-Spot then Moisturiser.
