Peter Thomas Roth: Killing the under eye game

Peter Thomas Roth has always been a favorite of mine. With super effective, tried and true ingredients combined with some great innovation. Peter Thomas Roth has found his way into many people’s beauty drawer. But these are two new kick ass eye products that I can personally vouch for! 

I started this blog a few months ago but haven’t posted much since the beginning and I’m going to change that! (It may be shorter posts but it’ll keep me posting!) But the main reason I haven’t had time to write is because I’ve been relocating from the San Francisco Bay Area to Seattle, Washington. Being my first move, it’s been tough! But because of this move I’ve had a lot of late nights, or draining days with not enough sleep in-between it really started to take a toll on my eyes. Well, my whole body but my dark undereye circles turned into basically two black eyes. Peter Thomas Roth came to my rescue and just in time. In just a few weeks my eyes were looking better than honestly I could remember. 

I’m gonna start with the newly appointed king retinol eye cream, Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM Eye Cream. Retinol is considered to be one of the best anti-aging ingredients out there. Commonly prescribed from Dermatologists to clients coming in with anything from acne to wrinkles, this ingredient is great at smoothing texture (all my fellow friends with milia hello!!), improve skin tone, and appearance of fine lines and wrinkles micro encapsulated at a smooth 1% to be released over 8 hours. This is the new age of beauty sleep! 

(okay but not the most luxurious packaging ever?)

Now I could rattle off just a couple more ingredients that are helpful but I mean seriously this this is FILLED with them. Here’s a helpful list:

  • Caffeine – depuff 
  • Vitamins A, C, E – antioxidant protection/ conditioning
  • Hyaluronic Acid – hydrating humectant
  • Squalene – moisturizing
  • Echinacea & Camellia – superior antioxidant protection
  • Aloe – hydrating, soothing
  • Allantoin & Panthenol – softening/smoothing/conditioning 
  • Ceramides – restoring lipid layer/ moisturizing

Like, guys there’s more but I didn’t feel like going any further. Let’s talk about texture. It’s a fairly thick cream and it dries down completely. I actually notice a bit of ‘hold’ like the same feeling you get with a heavy duty under eye concealer. I was told by a brand representative that this is to help the absorption of the ingredients with the eye area having smaller pores it can be a little more difficult.

TRY IT!   

Then my guilty pleasure are the 24k Gold Lift&Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches. If you can’t get your 8 hours these will make you not only look but feel like you did. 

These bad boys are packed as well! 

  • Niacinamide – antioxidant protection, brightening, conditioning
  • Allantoin & Hydrolized Collagen – moisturizing/conditioning
  • Caffeine – depuff
  • Hyaluronic Acid & Glycerin – hydrating and plumping humectants 
I’ve never had as many astonished faces after taking these off clients compared to any other product I’ve used in consultations. These are crazy fast acting, and not to mention super relaxing. Whether you’re not feeling it when you wake up or have to look your best for a night out these lil guys will always have your back for puffiness, dark circles and dehydrated/tired eyes
I didn’t mention the gold found in these on purpose, it’s something many people believe has no/little effect on the skin topically and can be relatively gimmicky at times like how many people advertise collagen as a ‘unwrinkle’ ingredient but in reality it is beneficial as it’s very soothing/moisturizing but we don’t see much documented evidence it helps with firmness and elasticity and we know for sure it does not ‘add’ or ‘synthesize’ collagen production. 
I know I said i was going to make these smaller probably and looking at the size of this, I’ll start with the next one.
