Mask Monday: Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Masque
The Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Masque has become quite the star in my extremely large mask collection and it’s actually replaced the moisture mask element during my Triple Threat Facial routine. It’s been a long time since I’ve really, thoroughly enjoyed a gel mask, but this one has definitely changed all that; I even use this midweek when my skin feels like it’s going to freak out as it’s the perfect balancer.
The Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Masque is, as the name suggests, a gel formula packed full of skin-loving goodies that perform a number of tasks. It contains soothing ingredients such as cucumber and chamomile, plus gentle, natural fruit enzymes from pineapple, orange, lemon and sugar cane. It states how suitable it is for sensitive skin and I’m inclined to agree that I’d be surprised if it would upset any sensitivity issues, but as there’s a bit of acidic fruit in there, I’d recommend patch-testing to err on the side of caution.
I like to apply a thick layer of this and leave it on for a few hours if I can, as it’s just so soothing. Regular readers will know that my skin can go off into wildly different directions when upset, resulting in dryness, dehydrating and mega breakouts, all of which are as fun to treat as they sound, so soothing, calming products are the way to go for such skin problems and this masque is particularly effective at calming a multitude of flare-ups. It’s also a brilliant product to use after any kind of skin treatment – like laser or peels – or facials, and it totally rebalances skin after a deeply cleansing or exfoliating mask. This is my first intro to Peter Thomas Roth skincare, and I’m so impressed that I’ve actually ordered a mask set in my most recent Sephora binge, so I’ll share more info on that with you once it arrives. The Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Masque is very well priced at £30.25 for a nicely sized tub that should provide you at least 10 uses. You can find it here – link.
