If you read my 10 Thoughts Everyone Has During Autumn piece, you’ll know that I’m in the minority when it comes to pumpkin flavoured coffee. I just can’t get behind it. It’s not my thing. However it seems that during Autumn, everyone goes pumpkin-everything crazy – me included (except for the coffee.) So naturally when I started to notice pumpkin type skincare, I was intrigued and felt like it was a pumpkin variety I could get behind. Especially the face masks. Because this girl loves a good face mask, as you know.
The Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask is the one I’m referring to and the one that’s basically your autumn skincare savior. If you love the scent of pumpkin anything, you’ll love this. It smells gorgeous and is so autumnal and wintery that you’ll love using it during the colder months especially. However the mask itself is more than a nice-scented mask. It’s actually a really great skincare product for helping skin to transition into the colder months of the year. I find it’s one of the masks I reach for more than others during these months because my skin doesn’t know whether it’s coming or going… Suddenly we’ve gone from warm weather, lots of sunshine and fresh air to being stuck indoors a lot with central heating, cold wind and rain lashing the skin and basically germs everywhere (please tell me it’s not just me suffering right now!)
So with that said, it’s best to find good skincare solutions, and the Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask is part of mine. This mask works in multiple ways, which is why so many people rave about it. The first is that it contains AHA’s – my favourite thing in skincare right now. A type of acid, AHA’s work to break down the ‘stuff’ that bonds the top (dead) layer of skin and debris to the skin’s surface. Breaking down this layer allows the new, fresh layer of skin to be revealed and stops build up – it’s like having a facial. So the fact that the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask has these in, makes it a sure fire winner for those who want to really achieve great looking skin. (Just beware that skincare with AHA in will sting a little when used and may make skin look red after use, but it’s nothing to be alarmed at.)
As well as this, the mask also works to remove the things that clog the pores at the same time – dirt, pollution, make up etc. The mask will remove them all, so with the removal of the bonds between the dead old and new skin layer, this two-pronged attack on your skin will completely clear the surface of your face in one go.
The next thing that the mask does is act almost like an exfoliater. You’ll notice from the texture when you first see/touch it that the mask has a sandstone like texture to it. Which is almost gritty and what you’d expect from an exfoliater. These particles work to buff the skin and polish it, while doing the hard work of physically removing all the nasties that the previous two parts have done – all in one simple step.
The results of using this mask is clean, clear skin that radiates. It’s one of few masks that gives an instant result because you can physically see a clearer looking skin. For me I notice my pores look a lot better, smaller and less dark – which I think is thanks to removing everything that’s blocking them. It’s become such a hero product for me because I have always suffered with large pores, so anything that minimises their appearance is a winner from me. I now use this weekly as part of my normal skincare regime and I’ve recommended it to so many people.
So if you like pumpkin anything and everything, why not introduce it into your skincare? This mask will blow you away (as well as that top layer of dead skin cells!)
