Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Mask comes in a huge jar, which is a god send - since I wanted to just slather this on more and more.
This mask is made from 9,000 year-old black Moor Mud from the Irish countryside. Rich in nutrients, essential minerals and potent anti-oxidants, it helps protect against skin damage. It also contains Black Hijiki Seaweed (hence it's rich, black color), which provides nutrition and hydration to skin. However, the texture of the mask was what made it a pleasant surprise. It was soft, silky and almost gel-like in feel. Once I added a thick layer of the mask, I noticed a few minutes of tingling on my skin (not burning, but noticeable).
This is a "soft dry" mask (and yes, it's as inky black as it appears in the jar), meaning that at the end of the 10 minutes or so I had a mask on, it actually stayed moist - without drying to a hard finish. To remove, I used a moist washcloth.
Afterwards, my skin felt absolutely amazing. There was no dryness, tightness or irritation. It was velvety soft, and had an amazing glow and brightness. This mask worked equally well for more oily areas like my t zone and drier areas like my cheeks. After using, I had to only apply just a touch of serum and moisturizer, since my skin was already so well prepped.
I looked forward to using this about 2x week - and always on Sunday evening to get a great "skin start" to the week. This also makes a nice indulgence if you have time, before hitting the town for a big night out!
Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Purifying Mask is a great investment in your skin, and if you can only buy 1 new mask right now, make it this one. - RLB
