Cucumber Gel Masque is an overpriced water-based mask that contains a mixture of irritating and non-irritating plant extracts. It should not be considered calming or capable of reducing under-eye puffiness, at least not any better than using a cold compress to relieve swelling.

Claims

An ultra gentle, ultra soothing, hydrating and calming gel masque. Instantly soothes sunburned skin, calms and hydrates all skin types including the most sensitive skin. Natural enzymes help soften skin while botanical extracts comfort and help protect skin against free radical damage. A tip from Peter, use under the eye area to reduce puffiness. Also soothes sunburn.

Brand Overview

Peter Thomas Roth At-A-Glance

Peter Thomas Roth is a large but straightforward line with mostly uncomplicated formulations that, for the most part, are quite good and state-of-the-art. Unlike many product lines, most of the acne, AHA, BHA, sunscreen, and moisturizing products contain what they should to be effective and helpful for skin.

Even more impressive are the well-formulated cleansers, sunscreens, AHA products, and skin lighteners. The moisturizers have improved somewhat, and most are now packaged so that the light- and air-sensitive ingredients remain stable. In fact, Roth's packaging deserves special mention because it is exceptionally utilitarian.

After all that glowing praise, what you should be aware of are the instances of products containing potential irritants (noted in their respective reviews) as well as the products in jar packaging that contain ingredients which are sensitive to air and light.
