Rated 4.34 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Yes, it DOES work, & EXCELLENTLY at that
Yes, this product is amazing, and it does work. Yes, it is a little pricey, but honestly, what at ULTA isn't? Plus, the above reviewer must have been seriously misled if he/she rated this product only 2 stars because it "Only smoothed [her] skin, that's all"....it's not meant for just that, anyway.
If you clearly read its product description, you will see that this item is one of the few in the line that is less about actively targeting some problem area of skin, and more focused on working as a gentle, healing and soothing mask for those of us who DO consistently utilize the harsher, more active/ intense skin care products, like resurfacing face washes, wrinkle and fine line creams and serums, exfoliators, natural and synthetic, strong, skin brighteners/spot faders, and microdermabrasion and chemical peels (not to mention a host of acne solution products and makeup items). Those of us who do use these aforementioned skin products, especially on a consistent basis (which is what is recommended for best results), will inevitably encounter more severe skin irritation and redness than those utilizing these skin care routines on a less frequent bases.
Therefore, smart companies/lines like Thomas Peter Roth, have created softer, more "inactive" products intended for the sole purpose of countering the negative effects of the other, more potent products. Sometimes moisturizer alone every day isn't enough, especially for extremely sensitive skin undergoing intensive skin treatments during the summer...they need something additional to help cool down the painful burning sensation we sometimes experience after peels or even just simple facewashing. Kind of like aloe for sunburns (aloe vera, for example, is a simple and natural substance; you wouldn't expect it to transform your entire skin in any radical way. It just helps make skin pain and irritation a little more tolerable.) And that's exactly what this product by T.Roth does. Nothing more, nothing less. It's a little irritating it's so expensive, but it does live up to its word, which is what's most important. JMHO :)
Most Helpful Critical Review No difference after 7 days of use!
It's been a best-seller for years, it has glowing reviews and from an ingredients perspective, looked like a really good investment for my combination-oily, dehydrated skin which is prone to dullness. You have in here: papaya and pineapple which contain renewing enzymes, soothing Chamomile, good old Aloe vera, plus some brightening ingredients such as lemon. However in reality I'm not sure this mask did anything at all. To really give face masks a chance to work, I tend to use on consecutive days and allow the effect to build up, although by the end of the week I could not notice any discernible difference compared to day one. There was no brightening, not much difference in hydration and skin condition either. I really don't get why this didn't work for me. And I used it for at least 15 minutes each time. Perhaps the 'actives' in here are at extremely low concentrations? Who knows. It's exceptionally rare for me to come across a mask that does nothing...looks like I may have just found one! -> My 'Ulta Beauty Top 7 must-have list' (My 7 favorite beauty products of all time, focusing mainly on my purchases at Ulta) < - < 1.

Absolutely love! Will be buying over and over again. Made my skin so glowy and hydrated just how I wanted it. Also noticed my skin get smoother:)
Lily from Boston
I have combo skin, so I struggle with a combination of both an oily t zone and dry cheeks. This product leaves my skin feeling so good, and it doesn't feel like it drys out my skin. Some cleansers feel very stripping to the skin but this mask does not do that.
Lexi from New Jersey
I was struggling with dry skin for a few months and my regular gentile skin moisturizer wasn't enough. I use this multiple times a week now and it's just the boost I need. No more flaking skin!
eli89 from California
I do the intense treatment and sleep with it on. Just to get the best of it. My skin feels great and my makeup looks so good after. I can see a big difference when I put makeup. When I don't use this I have to add alot more to my skin prep so it doesn't look so dry, with this I don't. I'm not super dry but it still helps a lot.
Don't like the consistency
cat from Dallas, TX
It literally is a gel. It did not feel like a mask. It was not cooling either. I was very disappointed.
Cathy from Huntsville alabama
I keep it in my fridge. Use it every morning for my puffy eyes. Feels great & really works ! I also use after a chemical peel for its wonderful moisturizing effect.
Makes my no-makeup look possible
Nicole from San Francisco
I've fully embraced the no/minimal makeup trend since COVID and this is my holy grail. I now use this every morning for a softening and slight tightening effect (miraculously reducing pore size) which also soothes any redness or irritation away. Even my boyfriend commented that my skin looks so good.
hazleyy from alabama
I have used this mask for years! I've struggled with rosacea for years but after finally getting my skin care perfected I have an even skin tone(: this mask is perfect for irritated skin and sensitive skin. It's super hydrating and calming to the skin, would highly recommend.
tyler from boston
my skin has been super dry and dull-looking. after using this mask 2-3 times my skin looks glowy and feels soft. i have sensitive skin and it soothes any impurities! definitely recommend.
Definitely would recommend
Liz from Spicewood , Tx
I love this Product! Read an article about this product for rosacea sufferers.
This really soothes, softness my skin. My skin suffers from rosacea. So I have very sensitive redness skin. Definitely helps in lowering my flare ups/redness flares. I first tried it as is and then used it a cool version gel by putting it on the fridge. I also put some on over night.
Great for sun burned face
Gina from WA
I really like this product. I wouldn't call it a miracle product as some others have, but it has many good points. I especially like to use it on my face (leave on all day) after too much sun. It really helps to eliminate peeling from a burn. If it wasn't so expensive, I would put it on my whole body lol
Got a sample and will be buying full size
Suz E from Atlanta
I have extremely sensitive skin and eyes, and this mask is so calming! But there's more - after using, my skin looks plumper and brighter and my makeup goes on so nicely. A few times I have put it on after a shower and then had to run one of my kids somewhere - no problem because it's clear and my skin looks great while the mask is on. I received a sample bag with several good prestige brand masks in it that I have been trying out, but this is the full-size I'll be purchasing for the summer.
Not a miracle product but still very nice
Tiki from Texas
I was so excited to get this after seeing other reviews. Application was very easy and a little goes a long way so for the size I'm not mad at the price. I could feel the cooling immediately but it wasn't so intense that I disliked it & the cooling affects lasts for a little while after rinsing off. It made some parts of my skin a little itchy but wasn't irritating to my skin. Calmed down some of my redness on the first use but not all. I'll definitely keep using this for sure.
#1 summer mask
Jenn from Washington
My husband and I went on vacation to Cancun, MX for 10 days. His face peeled despite avid sunscreen, and mine did not. Can you guess why??
This mask is incredible! I won't go a summer or sun-filled day without it. Better than aloe x1000
Elle from Missoula
I used this masks once and saw a difference from how soft and plump my skin felt. When my skin feels any dry this can fix it in 20 mins. Great product just wish price what more affordable for everyone.
Best mask I've ever used in my life!
Cin from Central Valley
Omg I don't typically leave reviews but I saw a couple of negative reviews and wanted to clear up any doubts for people who are Curious about this product! This literally makes me feel so much better not wearing makeup. My fresh skin looks so much more supple and fine lines are not as apparent. I can't explain all around how great my skin looks and feels after 10 minutes. I use this religiously every day and even sleep with it on at times. It feels like baby skin! I actually bought this product as I was going to do facials w my gfs at he cabin but this has quickly become a staple item for me now! Please try!
Just too expensive
Audrey from US
Hasn't made an overall affect on my skin, but is really helpful when I over exfoliate or get too much sun.
Perfect for irritated skin!
Amanda B from Newport Beach, CA
I am in love with this mask! It can be used daily or however much you feel is necessary. I generally use it whenever I feel like my skin is irritated usually after I've picked at my skin. It works really well for inflammation, redness, and feels like your putting on jelly. My face always feels very hydrated afterwards but not to the point where it would mess with my acne prone oily skin. It's also great after other masks like exfoliating peels or mud masks that might make your face feel stripped of moisture. I think this would work well with any skin type especially if you are looking to heal your skin from other acne treatments, sensitivity, or just redness in general. Yes it is a bit expensive but I definitely feel like it's made a very positive impact on my skin! Just get it!
Great For Angry Skin
Echo from Springfield, OR
I use this when my skin is angry from testing a product it didn't like or when I go a little too hard on exfoliating. Immediately after rinsing, my skin is cool, calm, and back to normal
SarahEBee from Pittsburgh, PA
I never leave reviews. I'm not the person who says I don't and really do. Once I hit 30, my skin has really hated me. Acne, perioral dermatitis, rosacea. I've been diagnosed with it all. My skin was SO DRY washing stung and I had uneven skin and red bumps. I used this ONCE. Doused it on, kept it on for 10 minutes, rinsed and used my regular moisturizer. MY SKIN IS LEGIT 50x better today. I'm ecstatic. It's worth the money!
actually read this
victoria from algonquin
okay i never even write reviews because i don't care to, also any other facial product is just average and it reaches my standards but never exceeds my expectations. i have eczema on my face and just overall redness, as well as being acne prone. guys, i know this is a pricey product but within 30 minutes of having this on my face, 1. it felt amazing 2. it felt so cooling and most importantly 3. my face is NOT RED
i will be buying this product again
this is a née holy grain
tip: put this in the fridge for like 20 min if u want an extra cooking effect, feels great
Very much worth the money!
Maddie from Massachusetts
I have very dry, and sensitive but still hormonal acne prone skin. This mask is a must buy! I've used it for the past week for 10 minutes every other night because my skin was feeling very dry with the winter weather. After you wash it off and follow up with your daily moisturizer (I use the cerave cream) your skin feels hydrated and smooth for the next day! It has a very nice, cooling sensation so I could see why you would use it after a sunburn. The more product you put on, the Colfer it will feel. My one note for the company would be to not use the green dye, because I feel it is unnecessary for the product, but it was definitely worth the money!!
Love worship and cherish this product
Kendra from Pennsylvania
I used this product for bed time! I washed my face first, let it dry then lathered it on. A little goes a long way. It might be quite expensive for the fella but you get your money's worth for sure! It has a nice faint chemically smell but not terrible. So faint it wears off once you put it on your skin. I woke up the next morning and my face was glowing and hydrated. And it's the perfect hydration especially for people with oily skin but it does not make you super oily. It just makes your dry flaky face look hydrated and plump again.
I LOVE THIS
Hg from Middle of nowhere
This mask hydrates without making your skin oily! And if you put it in the fridge it is super cooling and feels nice. It reminds me of a Jell-O shot lol but don't worry, it's not super thick and goopy.

My face is super super sensitive and acne prone and it did not irritate my face and cause breakouts
