Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask

Pumpkin - a vegetable I have never been able to take a liking to. There's just something about it which makes me feel ewww-ish. But what smells like pumpkin (with hints of cinnamon) that I can never say no to? The Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask Dermal Resurfacer! That's a mouthful isn't it? But boy, oh boy! This mask is all kinds of amazing! It is really, really the next level of masks! 

When it comes to masks, the market is flooded with clarifying mud masks, hydrating masks, cleansing masks, detoxifying masks... you name the concern and there is a mask out there for it. But not that many which claim to exfoliate and resurface the skin. Which is why I like love the PTR Pumpkin Enzyme Mask. It resurfaces, exfoliates, peels and polishes all in 1! Sounds great, right? It is!

Like many others, I came to know about this mask from TheAnnaEdit on YouTube. She raves about it and highly recommends it. It came up so many times in her videos that after a certain time I got curious and with some resistance and a lot of contemplation (the price tag isn't that great!) I got it (made people gift it to me ...hehe).

The Pumpkin Enzyme Mask offers chemical exfoliation (pumpkin enzyme and AHA) + physical exfoliation (fine aluminimum oxide crystals) and together it makes your skin vavavoom! 
If you have sensitive skin, you can skip the physical scrub and just apply it to let the AHAs do the job. Also, if you have sensitive skin, this can be a bit strong for you, so you might want to do a patch test or grab a tester/sample size first. 

I slather a thin layer of the mask, massage it for about a minute (very gently...you can get carried away, but don't), let it sit for 3-5 minutes and then rinse it off. 

It tingles quite a bit and turns warm but that dies down in a couple of minutes. My skin occasionally turns ever so slightly pink in certain areas (if I leave it on for 5+ mintues)

The result? Skin looks healthier, smoother, glow-ier, brighter, radiant... should I add some more adjectives? The dry patches are gone, blackheads reduced and the pores look ever so slightly refined

Price : 4120 INR for 150ml (I bought it from Amazon)

The price, yes, is steep, but you get a whooping quantity in the jar. And you need a very small amount each time. Very small amount.

**If you have extremely sensitive skin/have undergone any skin treatments or are new to the AHA game - skip this one. Go for something a bit more gentle to begin with.

If you can't be bothered for overnight treatments or waiting around 30-40 minutes for a product to show results, then this one is a dream that shows results in 3-5 minutes! 
It is like a instant mini facial and one of my favourite masks! Highly recommended!
