This Face Mask Kit Solves Every Skin Issue
If you're like me, you enjoy testing beauty products before buying them, especially when it comes to luxury brands that aren't drugstore bargains. Sometimes, though, dabbing lotion on the back of your hand (which doesn't match the texture, dryness/oiliness, or sensitivity of the skin on your face) doesn't do the trick. You might think you love that $75 face cream from a new trendy brand, and hey, you deserve a "treat yourself" moment—until the next morning when you wake up to a $75 breakout. This sad little tale is all to say this: Beauty samples are key to shopping for new products, especially if you enjoy saving money and not irritating your skin.
One of the best beauty purchases I've made in quite some time was a collection of face mask samples from clinical skincare brand Peter Thomas Roth. I love a good face mask session after a long week, but my skin's needs aren't consistent day to day. If I've been traveling, I want a brightening mask to pep up my tired skin. If I've been in the sun, I want a hydrating mask to moisturize my dryness away. If I've had a big weekend, I want an exfoliating mask to slough away dead skin cells for a fresh start. If I'm suffering from a breakout, I want an acne-fighting mask to clear me up. And sometimes, I want a mask that will leave my skin feeling overall better. It's a tall list to fill.
Luckily, Peter Thomas Roth's Meet Your Mask Kit satisfies all those needs—and then some. This package comes with six masks, so you have one on hand for whatever mood your skin is in. The kit, a $42 value, is usually sold for $25, which is already a great deal. Even better? You can get it for less than $20 on Amazon right now.
You'll get multiple uses out of each mask sample, so you potentially have months of masks for around $20. That's better than any drugstore deal. Plus, if you find out you don't favor one of the masks, it wasn't as big of a loss as buying a full-size product and having to throw it out or give it away. I can confidently say that you're going to like these masks, though.
The kit comes with a Blue Marine Algae Intense Hydrating Mask, a Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask, a 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask, an Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask, a Cucumber Gel Mask Extreme Detoxifying Hydrator, and a Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Enzymatic Dermal Resurfacer. Those names are a mouthful, but each mask's purpose is simple.
The Blue Marine Algae Mask is all about hydration. If your skin is desert dry, this mask will hyper hydrate and leave you with a dewy glow. The Rose Stem Cell Mask blends five rose stem cells with five rose extracts for a soothing, smooth result. This mask is an all-in-one that tackles wrinkles, dullness, and dehydration. The 24K Gold Mask firms up signs of aging like fine lines and sagging skin, and it feels all-around luxurious. The Irish Moor Mud mask has that satisfying clear-you-out effect without stripping your skin completely. Although your skin is purified and purged of dirt and grime, it's left feeling soft, not dried out. The Cucumber Gel Mask has similar hydrating qualities as the Blue Marine Algae Mask but with a little extra cleaning power. Soothing cucumber is ideal after sun exposure or a too-harsh facial. The Pumpkin Enzyme Mask feels the most intense while it works. With exfoliation and a mini peel, your skin will never feel more smooth or fresh than after you take this guy off.
So you're sold, right? I have been for months now. Instead of buying full-size face masks, I enjoy going back to this kit that treats multiple issues at such a low price. No mask is one-size-fits-all, and no skin has the same needs every day, so this mask kit is an incredible investment. Plus, if you're obsessed with one of the masks, you can confidently buy the full-size product and feel good about your purchase.
