Here’s a product with a name that is as mouthful as it comes. And the price is equally hefty, something that makes people think twice before swiping their credit card. But for all the goodness that it promises: the luxury of the 24K gold and the vow to lift and firm your skin, does it really live up to the hype?
Read on to find out whether or not the Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Luxury Lift & Firm delivers on its promises.

First Impression: My Thoughts and Impressions on Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Luxury Lift & Firm
I love luxurious skin masks.
Here’s one thing that everybody should know about me; I love masking. I love the feel of my skin after the application of a skin mask. As predicted, I have a stash of them: from hydrating, lifting, cleansing to rejuvenating. I love coming home after a long day of work and cleansing my skin, and applying a thick layer of liquidy goodness.
It helps make my skin feel like it didn’t go to work at all!
So when I first lay my hands on the Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask Luxury Lift & Firm after paying a hefty amount of money on it, I was super excited. Do bear in mind that this is not the first Peter Thomas Roth mask I have laid my hands on. I have also tried the Pumpkin Enzyme Mask and the Rose Stem Cell Mask before, and I have loved them both.
Let’s see whether or not the 24k gold mask lives up to the other masks.
First off, the product looks so good even from the outside. It comes in a plastic tub, although I would have preferred a glass tub, anyway moving on. The plastic tub is transparent and bears the name and ingredients of the mask. The packaging comes with a gold cap.
It doesn’t have a strong smell per se, but there’s a very thin smell of something that I can’t quite place. Anyway, it doesn’t come off as too strong, meaning people with sensitive noses should be able to do fine with it. The texture of the mask is quite thick, like a gelatinous slimy silky smooth touch. When you open the tub, you can already see the radiance shining through as it is loaded with gold goodness.
Surely the gold transfers onto your skin; let’s wait and watch, shall we?
So, I had already washed my face off with the Clinique Rinse-off foaming cleanser. To take it one step beyond, I also decided to exfoliate my face first and did so with the Clinique Scrub. Now that my skin was scrubbed off and ready to take on the mask, I opened the tub of the luxurious face mask. I took a big goop off the tub and slathered it on my face.
The mask applied incredibly smoothly and was easy to manipulate to every nook and corner of my face. I made sure to apply an opaque layer, and it did take a lot of the product off. Since it was the first time, I decided to leave it on for 10 minutes and may have even put it on longer than that.
Maybe about 15 minutes?
After the allotted time was over, I went to the bathroom to rinse it off with lukewarm water. The mask was a little too difficult to rinse off since it was so heavy and opaque. But gradually, I felt the mask leave my skin. After I dried my face with a paper towel, I glanced at the mirror.
My skin DID look radiant. It was the golden shimmer that had been left behind by the mask. I loved it!
I couldn’t say for sure that my skin felt tauter and more lifted as the makers promised. But there was a radiant glow that lingered on for a couple of days after using the mask.
It’s a YES from me!
Since the first time I used it, I’ve used it more often and have felt the golden radiance making my face look brighter and younger. I still can’t say for sure that my skin has felt lifted and tauter, but it does make my skin feel very soft and smooth to touch. It also leaves behind an opulent golden glow that only really expensive facials can promise.
Sometimes, when I have the time, I leave the mask on for more than 10 minutes and go up to 20 or 30 minutes. Since the product isn’t drying at all, I think the added minutes does more benefit to the skin than harm.
It also makes my skin feel more hydrated and soft to touch. Of course, you don’t have to follow my advice but maybe give it a try and see for yourself.
If you have extremely loose skin and are in need of a mask that makes your skin feel taut and young again, this may not be the mask for you. This is more of a hydration mask that adds glow to your face. I wouldn’t vouch for its anti-aging properties. Overall, I love the product for the radiance that it brings to my face, and I would recommend it to anyone.
