origins original skin retexturizing mask with rose clay vs. peter thomas roth rose stem cell bio-repair mask

Here is a look at two rose based masks that I have been using recently. I am drawn to rose as an ingredient. If you are a fan of rose products emilynoel83 did an amazing video comparing various rose items and features one of these masks.  Here are just my thoughts on these two bare in mind these masks are completely different, hopefully if you read through my pros and cons it will help you decide which one would be best for you!

origins original skin retexturizing mask with rose clay (shown is a deluxe sample size)

What it is: borrowed from Sephora
A two-in-one purifying mask and skin refiner that’s formulated with Canadian willowherb, Persian silk tree, and a potent blend of actives to smooth, refine pores, and boost skin’s overall quality.

pros:
  • very easy to use and spread, washes off easily without making a mess of your cloth.
  • feels cooling and does not pull too much on the skin as it dries.
  • lightly scented and should work great for sensitive skin.

cons:
  • the dual face scrub aspect of it is pretty much non extant the jojoba beads are way to sparse and gentle.
  • I personally did not notice any extra refinement of my skin, it gave me the same pore/skin softness as other clay masks I have used. 
Overall thoughts: Even though there is not much written up above I would re-purchase this. Clay masks are pretty easy to diy and this one is priced very fair,  it was so easy to use with no mess like a mix it yourself mask that it got bonus points.  It would be a great option if you are looking for a clay based mask and have a soft spot for rose.

What it is: borrowed from Sephora
A cooling, soothing gel to help counteract visible signs of aging for younger-looking skin.

pros:
  • a very unique texture it is definitely cooling and soothing on the skin
  • washes of easy and leaves skin soft
  • light scent should work great for sensitive skin 

cons:
  • you do need a brush to apply it the gel doesn't spread as nice with just fingers
  • I have noticed any anti-aging benefits...
Overall thoughts: Personally I am on my third jar of this (yes Sephora has alllll my money) so I definitely enjoy this mask. I have never used a gel mask before this one and really do enjoy using it on irritated/blemished skin. It is definitely a mask to look into if you hope to get glowy soft skin.

Has anybody else tried any other rose based mask I should know about?
