What’s Up Dears! I recently discovered an exciting face mask that’s so meant for this summer, and it’s all about them good ol’ cucumbers. As we all know, cucumbers not only depuff the skin, but they also soothe irritated skin. They even hydrate and has anti-aging properties. Well, lucky us, there’s a new cucumber face mask in town, it’s the Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme Detoxifying Hydrator. Such a long name right? Let’s just call it, the PTR Cucumber Gel Mask for short.
This Cucumber Gel Mask is an exciting must have specially in this warming temps where most of us would want to frolic on the beach or to better yet spend some time on waxing centers before showing off that hard-earned beach bod. That’s because this PTR Cucumber Gel Mask helps soothes sunburned skin, reduces redness, and soothes irritations. You can even use it right after major sun exposure even if there’s no sunburn noticed. It has a cooling feel to it which calms and soothes the skin and pores that’s been waxed or peeled.
Apart from the soothing effect, this Cucumber Mask reduces puffy undereyes and dark circles. No more raccoon eyes. Ha! This definitely helps to not make you look stressed out for sure, thus, making you look well-rested for the day. It’s very gentle and refreshing with ingredients like: cucumber, papaya, chamomile, pineapple, lemon and aloe to name a few. I love how it feels on the face, and the gel formulation feels already cool even without refrigerating the mask. The instruction says to put the product inside the refrigerator for a very cool treatment, which is what I’ve been doing lately and it feels really really good.
This mask is ideal for any skin types even for sensitive skin. Just apply a coat on a clean skin and leave it on for 10 minutes. I like to leave it on for 5 minutes more actually, and then rinse with cool water. If you have very dry skin, you can leave the product overnight or use it more often during the week. It’s a mild and soothing product, so you can even use it daily.
If I have to rate this PTR Cucumber Gel Mask on a scale of 1 to 5, 1 being a meh and 5 being awesome, I’d say that this mask deserves a 4.5. It may not be a treatment mask that solves it all, but I like its wellness effect on the skin. It restores hydration and prevents my skin from having dry patches. Also, this soothes the redness of my cheeks and depuffs my puffy lids. I love the fresh cucumber-chamomile scent and the relaxing and enjoyable feeling that this mask brings.
This Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme Detoxifying Hydrator is available at Sephora, Nordstrom, and Ulta.
