Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads

Hello everyone! How’s everyone’s summer going or winter, depending where in the world you are? Mine is ok, I’ve been a little stressed, which is sometimes I don’t post, but I’m trying hard because I really appreciate those of you who take the time to read!

Today I’m going to talk about these Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Peel Pads that I got as a gift with the purchase for buying their Un-Wrinkle Eye Cream at a beauty store. I didn’t really know what to expect before opening it, but hey free is free!

I wasn’t gifted the 60 pads, rather 20 haha, but hey it’s something… you can get the 60 pads for $45 or the deluxe, which has 90 for $58. On the front label it reads: 20% complex of alpha, beta, gamma, exfoliators & amino acids the building block of peptides, exfoliates, resurfaces, clarifies, firms, helps visibly minimize pores, fine lines, uneven skin tone, Vitamins A-C-D-E & F, chamomile, and green tea extracts. One thing I should mention is that pores cannot be minimized, your pores are your pores, but you can minimize how they look with maybe this, and of course makeup.  

Now this is truly unscented, and what I mean by this is that you actually can smell that it’s chemically. When you buy products and they are unscented, but actually don’t smell like anything, they’re actually scented because they need to make it so it doesn’t smell like chemicals.

Here you can see the Pads and hopefully the texture of the pads.

 

These pads are wet and cool to the touch and can be used on the face, chest, elbows, the top of the hands and knees. They recommend for every day use, but in my opinion everyone knows their own skin best and can decide if they can use them daily. Perhaps for 3 or 4 days you can test it out as a daily treatment and if it works for you, great, but if it doesn’t I would say do it every other day or 3x a week or even just once a week. Something is always better than nothing. As I’m using it it feels a bit prickly on the skin, and cooling. I don’t rub it on my face, as rubbing on your face, especially around the eyes promotes wrinkles, but rather do a circular motion until I’ve done the whole of my face. My skin feels slightly foamy afterward, but not so much so that it’s bothersome. I leave it on for a minute to three and then wash my face and apply face cream. So far after every use my face feels nice and soft, but of course the use of these peel pads is used along with my general skincare treatment.

You may say I’m too young or you’re too young to use un-wrinkle products, that is NOT the case. You’re never too young. When you are younger it’s preventive, because you’re making sure to take care of the skin as you get older it’s no longer preventive and it’s more about maintenance. The more you take care of your skin the better you age.

    Interesting! I have never heard of these before you showed me. Are these like exfoliant pads?

    • I want to say that they are. I think calling it a “peel” is more marketing. Exfoliating every day isn’t good for the skin… It’s good to slough but you have to let the skin regenerate, of course using it everyday means you’ll need more soon. I didn’t know about the brand until recently either!

    • Yes. When I got the baggy with them I wasn’t sure what to expect inside the container. Like how pads could be a peel? Haha

    I got confused when they called it a peel. I immediately thought of the peel masks that you can get where you spread the mixzture on your face, wait a few minutes, then peel (literally peel) of the mask, then rinse face.
