A Month of Peter Thomas Roth Masks

Hello everyone!

I’m sorry I’ve been absent, it was a crazy week last week! But I’m back with another post, this one is a bit different than what I’ve done because it was sort of an experiment to see what would happen and also it was an excuse to use some products from my project pan.

This idea sprung on me when I was taking photos of my project pan. As I was separating products, I quickly realized that I had loads of samples of the PTR masks, including a sample from a previous Sephora box.

One Month of Peter Thomas Roth Face Masks


Right away I knew I should try using these masks for an entire week to see what would happen, if anything. It was only supposed to be for one week, but since it went so well, I decided to do the entire month. In all honesty, this was for fun.

WARNING: I don’t have sensitive skin, so I don’t need to worry about doing a skin patch test prior to testing the products on my face, but it’s a good idea to do so for yourself.

So without further ado, here are the products:


  • FIRMx Peeling Gel
  • Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask
  • Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme Detoxifying Hydrator
  • Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer
  • Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask
  • Blue Marine Algae Intense Hydrating Mask
  • 24K Gold Mask Pure  Luxury Lift & Firm Mask

I did my best to separate the dermal resurfacer and peeling gel a few days out, to avoid being so rough on the skin, just as a precaution. Also, the majority of these masks, with the exception of two, were still sealed so I used some for the first time.

Peeling Gel


Visibly roll lift and sweep away dead skin cells when massaged onto skin. Multi-action enzymes and cellulose help uncover a smooth fresh new complexion.


This peeling gel is amazing! It goes on clear. It is a bit gross to see the dead skin lifting off, but my skin feels really soft and smooth after washing it off. One thing I did find odd, is how the skin feels as I’m washing it off. Almost like a waxy feeling, it’s a bit weird. But I can look past it because this mask works so well!

Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask


Cutting-edge plant biotechnology isolates and replicates five perfect reparative rose stem cells. Four nurturing rose extracts helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles. Regenerates, hydrates, brightens, firms, and tones.


This mask was nice and I can’t really say much about it? LOL. It was indeed pretty hydrating, I guess my skin does look brighter and more toned. I can’t say much about the fine lines because I don’t have any yet. But I’m liking how good my skin looks now.

Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme De-Tox™ Hydrator


Refreshing, cooling, moisturizing, calming gel helps soothe dry, irritated skin with extracts of cucumber, papaya, chamomile, pineapple, sugar maple, sugarcane, orange, bilberry and aloe.


Just like the Rose mask, this felt nice, cooling, and refreshing. I felt like this one calmed and moisturized my skin after washing it off. I don’t know much about the “extreme detox” part, but it might have contributed to my clear skin as the month progressed. This was a good one to have this winter.

Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer


Three-in-one intensive skin resurfacer mask exfoliates with pumpkin enzyme peels with alpha hydroxy acid, polishes with aluminum oxide, and reveals smoother, younger looking, radiant, and revitalized skin.


This one smells like pumpkin! I LOVE IT! I did find it a bit abrasive on the skin so I had to be really careful when massaging it into the skin. Overall, I do think it resurfaced the skin quite well.

This was probably the only mask I was unable to apply around my nose, that area is sometimes a bit sensitive and gets easily irritated with some face masks, especially during the winter. So I tried to avoid that area altogether. For those of you who have sensitive skin, you might want to do a patch test for this one just in case.

Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask


Purifying, refining, decongesting, and hydrating mask. Nutrient and mineral-rcih, Irish Moor Mud helps purify and refine the look of skin. Hijiki seaweed hydrates, volcanic ash revitalizes, and activated charcoal draws out toxins and impurities.


This one is a black mask, and possibly the only one with “color” as the rest are clear masks. This one is also pretty messy to wash off, I’m sure anyone who’s used a charcoal mask knows.

Anyway, I felt like I needed more of this mask to apply onto the skin evenly. While I don’t think a thick layer is necessary, I did felt it was a must to get an even layer. This was possibly one of my favorite masks though, it always left my skin feeling so squeaky clean and super smooth! 🙂

Blue Marine Algae Mask


Nourishing, refreshing, hydrating gel mask. Nutrient-rich glacial lake blue marine algae delivers maximum anti-aging moisture. Energizing Korean Jeju Island tea, Artic glacial antarcticine creates an eco-bubble barrier.


This was another favorite mainly because of its hydrating benefits. It came in handy when my skin really needed that extra moisture, so it was nice to have it in the rotation throughout the week.

I don’t have much to say about this one besides it’s hydrating. It goes on clear like the rest, no scent, no irritation. Washes off quite easily. It is refreshing, and even though most of the masks have some hydrating quality to them, this one delivered more hydration and I think it would be good for those of you with dry skin.

24K Gold Mask Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask


Pure 24K gold and colloidal gold help lift and firm, imparts an opulent glow. Peridot re-energizes the look of skin. Caffeine helps tighten the appearance of skin. Revitalizes, lifts, firms, brightens, smoothes, refreshes.


I thought this one would be gold when applied onto the skin but like the rest, it goes on clear. The only difference is this one does have gold in it. It looks like reflects, but it’s not glitter so you don’t even feel it at all. It goes on smoothly, without feeling anything extra in the mask.

I feel like this one makes my skin a bit more glowy, which I love and appreciate. I would also say that it gives my skin a bit of hydration as well. It washes off easily and you don’t need to worry about any remaining gold reflects on your skin. I think between this and the rose mask, they both have brightened my skin together and toned it.

This was such a fun experiment and I thoroughly enjoyed treating myself to a mask every night for an entire month. My skin hasn’t look this good in a while and I do attribute that to all these masks. In all honesty, most of these have saved me from major breakouts and have given my skin the moisture it needs since it’s very cold.


Overall, I’d say using a mask everyday, so long as it’s different, can have some great benefits. I know for me, they did, and I will continue to use them until I run out. Not only is it a good way to keep my skin clear, I am also using up some products in my project pan. Since I only used these masks four times each, I can’t say for sure if some of them will appear in my empties before the month ends. We’ll see.

Have you used masks everyday for a week? A month?
If not, how often do you use face masks?

  1. Nice review!! I am very curious to try these masks, they all look very appealing, and how useful to have the sample sizes to try them out! I love face masks a lot, my favorite one is the whitening mask my Mario Badescu, I use it two times per week!

    1. Thank you! They are all very nice, and very hydrating, so I didn’t have a problem using them every day. I know some people say it’s bad to use one every day but I think that depends on if it’s a clay or mud mask which can be drying. But these were good! 🙂
      It’s definitely nice to have sample sizes to try out that way I know which work or don’t, I believe Sephora might still have this mini set, I got this in a giveaway from a friend so I can’t say for sure.
      I’ll have to check that one out, I only know MB’s facial sprays, I have the aloe, cucumber and green tea one and i LOVE it!

  2. ♥️ this review! I am really interested in the Stem Cell mask as well as the Pumpkin one. They sound amazing!! I have not used masks daily, but I do apply them 3 times a week along with an exfoliate once a week. xx

    1. The stem cell one was really good and hydrating! I think it’s perfect for winter and possibly even for transitioning from winter to spring 🙂
      I love that you’re so faithful to your routine, I sometimes don’t follow through with mine LOL

  3. I always forget to use my face mask, lol. It’s just so messy that it seems like a lot of work. But I always like how my skin feels afterwards and it does help with breakouts, so really, I should use it more often!
    I’ve heard it can be bad to use a face mask everyday, but at least your skin isn’t sensitive, so it didn’t bother yours. Did you take before and after pictures? Anyway, what a fun way to work through your masks! Love the idea of the experiment.

    1. It is a lot of work, I dont blame you and I dont always have the time to do them either lol. But yes, they do make our skin feel amazing and keeps it clear.
      I think it depends on which face masks you use. These didn’t seem too bad, but I think it it was an abrasive mask or a mud or clay which can be drying, that* would be bad. I like to exercise caution but I also couldn’t help passing up this kind of experiment lol.
      I unfortunately didn’t and I should have!

        1. Oh no that actually sounds really terrible! 😦 I honestly cannot imagine. But at least you know your skin well enough and you do patch tests all the time 🙂 I don’t think I do patch tests for many products lol.

    1. Yeah I’ve heard lol. It might depend on what kind of mask it is, these didn’t seem to bad. I’m guessing because they were mainly hydrating. If it was a mud or clay mask I think that would definitely make my skin react differently.


  4. Aww! How disappointing that these masks all ended up being clear. I was so attracted to all the colors lol. How fun that you had so many to try this month & that your skin ended up looking better at the end of it is such a bonus. My stupid sensitive skin would prob get mad if I tried a new mask every night!

    1. Honestly that disappointed me too, I thought some would have some color. Or at least the gold one.. That one was far more disappointing lol.
      I guess I’m lucky in that aspect that I don’t have sensitive skin, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have sensitive areas, which I do. Some products CAN* be irritating to my skin.

    1. Yes, I don’t recommend an experiment like this, I think because they were gel masks, it turned out much better than I thought. But I know some people can have some serious allergic reactions to all the different products, but again, these were kind of the same more or less, so it wasn’t bad. But anyway, this little set is so good, I definitely recommend picking it up. Even though they’re so small, they last you quite a while considering you’d be using them two to three times a week and you’d be changing it up too.
