As per Sephora, "[t]his powerful, triple-action, manual, chemical, and enzymatic exfoliating treatment addresses a dull, aging, and congested complexion in three ways: it exfoliates with pumpkin enzyme, reveals with alpha hydroxy acid, and polishes with aluminum oxide crystals. It also helps even the appearance of skin tone, smooth the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and clarify to reveal skin that looks smoother, younger, radiant, and revitalized."

After using it for about 5 months or so, I can say yes to all of the above. This mask (or "Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer," if you prefer) smells exactly like pumpkin pie and has the finest exfoliators that I can feel as I apply it to my face. When I smooth it on, it begins to tingle -- not uncomfortably for me, but those with more sensitive skin might want to spot test first. I usually leave it on for longer than the packaging recommends (it says 3 - 7 minutes, but again, I think this depends on how painful it might start to feel for you) before I hop in the shower and let the steam work away at it for a bit longer before I massage it in with circular motions as I rinse it off. The next morning I wake up to baby smooth and glowing skin. For reference, I used to have really oily skin in my teens and twenties, and now it's evened out a bit to a more combination skin that is prone to hormonal breakouts. I'm sensitive in particular to heavily fragranced products and things chock-a-block with silicones (also, a very specific skin type barometer: Olay moisturizers always work for me but their cleansers always break me out. It's a mess). If you're my skin type doppelganger, this mask is for you!

It is fairly expensive ($58 USD for 5 ounces), but if it's any consolation, I've barely touched a quarter of the amount in the jar and I've been using it for almost half a year now; a little definitely goes a long way with this. It's the most expensive mask that I've used, but it's also the most effective one I own. At the rate this is going, this jar will last me until November when Sephora's sale rolls around again, and I can stock up on my yearly supply at a discounted rate.

I am a everyday masker with combination oily acne prone skin. My first impression of this product was it’s amazing pumpkin pie scent that literally smells good enough to lick off, lol.
Secondly, the texture is great. Perfect for exfoliation. When I finished applying it it had a tiny bit of tingle to it, which I love. Don’t let that tingle word scare you, it’s nothing intense. Its actually quite nice and feels as though it’s working, IMO.
After sitting for 5 minutes I rinsed and I instantly felt a big difference. My skin was amazingly soft, like my one year old daughters bottom soft! Even my husband who doesn’t really notice anything said I looked as if I was glowing!
Since then I have been using this mask 2x per week (and I would use it more if manufactures directions didn’t discourage it) and I continue to see and feel results each time. Now I keep it on for 10-15 minutes and see wonderful results.
Many people comment on the price tag of this mask. So I want to touch on that quickly. It is definitely pricey. BUT the jar will last you a VERY long time. I will be repurchasing when I run out.
I would recommend this and several other PTR masks to everyone!

I am obsessed with this wonderful mask! It smells like a million bucks and works like it too. My skin is so beautiful after I use this (probably to much lol). It is a true spa experience for me. I adore the texture and ease of application. I do have a Mask Tasker from PTR also because I hate to waste product under my nails. A breeze to use. Tiny tingle and a BIG payoff. If we had a girls night I would use this on you too so we would both be hooked.

I've been using the Peter Thomas Roth for over 3 years and I have a lot to say about this product! When I first started using it, my skin was really oily and I had a lot of congestion. I used this 2x a week and I loved it at first try because the formula is very innovative, it has AHA in it which is a very good ingredient for exfoliation and because of the pumpkin enzymes, my face became much clearer, breakouts minimized and overall there was a radiance in my skin and in the morning my skin would look amazing and the results when I put on my makeup was unbelievable! My makeup went smoother on my face and my skin was radiant and more even. The formula is quite unique, it took a while to get used to the tingling sensation but I don't have a sensitive skin type so luckily my face didn't get too red or results in any breakouts. As I gradually used it, I put it on and leave it for 10-15 min just to make sure that the Ingredients get to work properly and then I wet my finger tips and massage my face for a minute or two so I can get a physical exfoliation and after I wash it off with warm water. I make sure to follow with a hydrating overnight mask such as peter Thomas Roth rose stem cell mask, origins overnight mask, eve lom moisture mask, Aesop blue chamomile hydrating mask or fresh overnight black tea firming overnight mask! Overall this product has changed my skin type from oily to combination and then normal! It's pricey but the jar lasts you for a long time! Buy it and you won't regret it :)

I think my skin is just too sensitive for this mask. I put it on, and just a few minutes later my skin was burning like crazy. Not that soft tingle that usually comes with chemical exfoliant. Harsh, oh my god my skin must be melting off burning. I ended up giving the mask to a friend, who really enjoys it. I don't think I actually have very sensitive skin, I usually have no problem with various products. At worst, a product usually does nothing. But PTR, two of his masks have hurt me. If you have sensitive skin, I'd probably suggest staying away.

The price tag for a 5 oz container is crazy, but this is one effective mask. It definitely exfoliates, leaving my skin looking soft and smooth. I have used this 2-3 times a week and notice an overall improvement in the appearance of my skin. My pores look better and my skin looks healthier. I am 50 years old this is going to be part of my weekly routine. The mask leaves an orange tint on the skin and smells like pumpkin pie spice. Has micro scrubbing beads in it to massage mask into skin. I like to I leave on for 20-30 minutes for best results.

I got a trial size of this from Sephora, and I really enjoy it. The small size has 5-8 uses in it.
The mask truly scrubs your face, it tingles a little, but it just means that the mask is working. When I wash it off, my face feels very fresh and clean.
The packaging is nice, very sturdy plastic. I like that it's see-through, so I can see how much I have left.
I will totally buy this again, although the price is steep!

The first time I used it, it stung so badly I thought the mask was eating my face alive. I washed it off after literally one minute. However, to my surprise, my face felt so soft after that, I thought I would give it another go, masochist that I am. A few days later, I tried it again, bore the pain for 3 minutes and gosh - the results were simply spectacular. My complexion was baby smooth and flawless! So I used this about twice a week and the results were amazing. Then I got impatient and used it two days in a row (flawed logic: if my face looks this good using it twice a week, it would look twice as good if I used it every day). BIG mistake. I broke out in acne the next day and the zits didn't subside till a week later.

The lesson for this mask is this: It's great but you really have to adjust the usage according to your skin type. For sensitive skins, I recommend using this twice a week and most and building it up slowly. I also find that if I'm suffering from acne, using this makes it worse, so I give it a rest. What I dislike is the packaging. The jar packaging is unhygienic and causes the ingredients to lose potency over time, which is why I find that as time goes on, I can actually leave this mask on for longer without it smarting too much. Which is both good and bad news, I guess.

I got this mask in a sampler pack of face masks from Peter Thomas Roth, and I love it! I've been using it once a week for about 2 months now. I have sensitive skin, so the first time I used the mask, my skin did burn a little bit. I used it for a few minutes and gradually upped the time I left it on my face each time I used it with no problems. I would apply it to clean skin, with wet hands, and rub into my face and leave it. It's like a scrub and mask in one. It leaves my skin super soft and visibly more luminous! I also noticed an improvement in blemishes since using this mask, and skin ultimately feels much cleaner. I definitely recommend this mask, and can't wait to try out my other sample masks!
