Peter Thomas Roth is a brand I have been loyal to for some time now, ever since trying their cucumber gel eye patches which I talked about in an earlier post. As a beauty blogger, I try A LOT of different skincare products but not many of them make it to the blog, only those I truly love. With that being said, I felt I just had to share these new skincare favourites with you all in hope you’ll love them just as much as I do.
Cucumber Gel Mask
Fun fact about this gel, about one is sold every minute in the world. How crazy is that?! You could say it has somewhat of a cult following, but for good reason. This cucumber gel mask essentially a refreshing, cooling, moisturizing and calming gel mask that helps soothe dry, inflamed, irritated skin. I like to apply this after shaving, facial peels, waxing or anything that tends to irritate the skin. This gel will act as a comfort blanket as such for skin that is suffering. The naturally occurring enzymes will help soften skin and improve luminosity, but it’s the sugar maple and sugarcane extract that help to minimise redness and encourage cell regeneration.
24k Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Prism Cream
I don’t know about you guys, but anything skincare that contains 24k gold tends to draw my attention and curiosity. The 24k gold lift & firm prism cream is a luxurious cream with 24 karat gold and intelligent shade-sensing sphere technology to enhance luminosity and boost radiance, and colloidal gold to visibly lift and firm. There’s a couple ways you can use this one too. It can be used under makeup, over makeup, without any makeup, in specific areas or all over face. My favourite way is to use it is to apply it as I would a primer, under my makeup, for a very illuminated, glowing finish, or applying it as highlight on my cheekbones, brow bones and temples.
I even like to mix it in with moisturiser and apply it to my chest area for the most beautiful radiance. It’s technically classified as a skincare item because it helps diminish the appearance of skin imperfections, restores skin health by preventing water loss and provides hydration, and maintains natural collagen, but you could almost classify it as a makeup item since I see it more as a highlighter.
If someone asks me for a solution to dry skin, I almost immediately point them in the direction of Peter Thomas Roth’s Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream Hydrating Moisturiser (side note: I swear the name of skincare products are just getting longer & longer these days?). This moisturiser has a very unique, pillow-soft gel-cream texture that floats over skin and is instantly absorbed. You’ll notice right away how much smoother your skin feels and how it adds a soft glow to your complexion. Basically, if you’re after an intensely hydrating moisturiser, I couldn’t recommend this one enough. Friends of mine have even come back to me after purchasing it for themselves to tell me how much they loved it too!
