Today, let's talk skin care. I was lucky enough to be invited into the home of Peter Thomas Roth last month for an exclusive holiday launch party. First and foremost, being the holiday freak that I am, I have to note that the decor was absolutely stunning!!!!
Along with some of my absolute favorite New York based vloggers and a few new faces, we got to preview the newest products in the Peter Thomas Roth line - some of which haven't even hit the shelves yet. Best part? The swag bag included one of each product (except for the mud mask which I will talk about but I don't have to show you - BUT I seriously think I'll be purchasing it when it hits shelves because I loved it and it was so dark and must look cool on your face haha).
One of my favorite goodies was the 24K Gold Mask. I had actually purchased this from Sephora about a month before the event just because I thought it looked so cool. I had been loving this product so far. Not only does it look cool on - yes I know, the simple things excite me - it's also super amazing for your skin. My favorite part of ALL Peter Thomas Roth masks is that they do NOT, never, ever dry or harden. You can literally leave it on for an hour if you so choose and it will still be moist on the face until you wash it off. This particular one is called the Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask. It contains pure 24K gold in it and is a great anti-aging treatment. The mask leaves a glowy look to your skin afterward which gives a very healthy happy impression. This is a great prep item before a big date or important event. It also contains caffeine to help tighten, lift, firm and revitalize skin. Your skin is left looking refreshed and youthful.
A new favorite I discovered were the Cucumber De-Tox De-Puffing Eye-Cubes. These things are amaze-balls and will hit stores in February of 2015. They are perfect for the morning after a long day or a lot of partying. The pack comes with 6 eye-cubes and 6 pouches. In the first pic the cube on the right is liquid and the one on the left is frozen. You basically pop these bad boys in the freezer and they freeze into these eye-mazing eye-cubes. When you need one you just pop it into the pouch (second questions) and use ONE cube for both eyes by gently running it back and forth over your under eye area. Keep switching eyes every 10 or so seconds to not freeze that delicate eye area. This little cube is a power house of benefits. It has cucumber extract which soothes and detoxifies, Aloe Vera which soften and comforts skin (and is amazing for sun burn by the way), Arnica which has healing properties and helps diminish fatigue, dark circles and irritation, and caffeine which increases blood circulation and therefore reduces dark circles. Another benefit that I feel instantly after I use this product is a firming and actual tight feeling on my under eye area. I love that because I can actually feel like something is working and it makes me excited.
Next in the Cucumber De-Tox line is the foaming cleanser.This is a gentle cleanser good for all skin types that helps to detoxify, cleanse and soothe the skin. It also contains Sugarcane and Sugar Maple Extracts to promote cell turnover leaving you with more youthful looking skin.
The final product of the Cucumber De-Tox line that I have to show you today is the Hydrating Serum. This is also great for all skin types and contains hyaluronic acid which is an amazing ingredient that increases hydration to the skin. Maintaining good moisture levels helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines.
The Un-Wrinkle Fast Acting Serum is the newest generation of this product. It contains Snail Conopeptide which has not been seen used before in skincare. This ingredient helps to reduce and smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the face. It also has genuine Diamond Dust that creates a type of blur tool effects that will actually blur the look of lines and imperfections. This little bottle is basically a real life instagram filter! =0]
The Camu Camu Power Vitamin C Brightening Cleansing Powder is an interesting product. This is actually a water-activated powder that acts as a daily cleanser and exfoliant. It's gentle enough to be used daily and helps to leave the skin cleansed of impurities and brighten and firm the look of skin. This will be available in February 2015.
The Mega Rich Body Cleanser is full of vitamin E and pro vitamin B5 and now can be found in your room at a Hilton Hotel. This is an awesome partnership and a chance for you the get some extra pampering while on vacay with 6 products by Peter Thomas Roth being offered complimentary in the room. This body cleanser leaves the skin feeling fresh and moisturized and smells amazing.
The final product I have to share with you today will also be available in February 2015. This is the Brightening Bubble Mask Radiance Oxygenating Treatment. This mask brightens and helps to even out skin tone. It contains some ingredients that I found to be interesting because I had never heard of them before. The first is called Fiflow which draws in oxygen to the skin in order to create a plumping appearance. There is also Symwhite and Gigawhite which are natural skin-brightener peptide. Finally, Bearberry Extract is found in leaves and is a natural lightening compound to also brighten skin. The coolest part about this mask is that once you set it on your face it creates an oxygenated bubbling effect. You can then let it sit on the face and rinse it off or at any point just re-rub the product into your face to begin the bubbling effect all over again - without adding any new product.
The final product which I fell in love with but do not have to show you is called the Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask. This will be available in March of 2015. It contains Irish Moor Mud, Hijiji Seaweed, Volcanic Ash and Charcoal. It's a thick dark black and looks so cool to put it on. I'm really excited for this to come out and buy myself one so I can test it out more at home.
Okay loves, that;s all for today. I hope this helps anyone who is in the market for some new skin care products. Check out the brand and look into it some more. They use innovative ingredients and products to provide great results for your skin.
See you babes next Tuesday,
