Mask Monday | Peter Thomas Roth Therapeutic Sulfur Mask

This is the first mask I've seen that advises users not to use "large areas of the skin".

I was expecting this product to smell terrible but it isn't so bad. It looks like a typical clay mask...and applies that way as well.

I suspect the instructions only call for 10 minutes maximum of usage time due to the strength of sulfur. As such, the mask never has time to dry completely. If you're sensitive to sulfur don't even bother with this; if you have sensitive skin trod carefully.

Around my nose was tingling from de time I put dis on. After removal those areas were a lil red; everywhere else had no reaction. Since the mask wasn't on for the usual half hour my skin didn't feel dry or tight after use. This would make a great spot treatment; as the instructions state: "apply only to areas with acne." I can attest to sulfur working on acne so I have no doubts that regular use of this mask would be beneficial. And you already know how #TeamModen loves clay masks.

If you're an avid YouTube watcher you've probably heard about these products. Both brands blew up on the skincare seen in short order as expensive, but effective. If you're like me you quickly began to wonder: which is better? Short answer: it depends.


Long answer...

I've mentioned Good Genes a few times before on the blog. This 'all-in-one lactic acid treatment' is raved about by the likes of Stephanie Nicole and Caroline Hirons.

From the box: "Deeply exfoliates the dull surface of the skin for clarity, radiance, and younger-looking skin. Visibly brightens the appearance of age spots and discolorations. Instantly plumps the look of fine lines and wrinkles in 3 minutes*

Summer Standouts

It feels strange to talk about beauty products with all that's going on in the Caribbean. Our neighbours are going through some seriously trying times and I implore you to give whatever you can. 🙏

I didn't even realise that this was a running theme. Last year's was especially good since it featured some of my favourite combinations. Like last year, makeup seems to have taken a backseat this Summer.


There's only one item here that surprised me...but let me not get ahead of myself.
Y'all know exfoliators are a must in my skin and body care routine so the Bath & Body Works 'Lavender & Sandalwood' Clay Body Scrub and Coco Shea 'Coconut' Richly Nourishing Body Buff (thanks to the Mistress!) should come as no real shocker. Both smell amazing; again no shocker since regular readers know I'm a firm aromatherapy believer.
