First, a snapshot from Sephora, who carries Peter Thomas Roth.
The consistency truly is that of a gel. It is a translucent red/coral colored gel. It is thick, definitely moisturizing, but not sticky or wet at all. Actually, I was surprised at how it felt when I applied it. The first thing I noticed - it wasn't cold when I touched it to my skin. In fact, it felt almost luke warm. It is the weirdest sensation, mostly because I am used to how cool a moisturizer feels when first touched to the skin. Secondly, rich but light. It almost feels as though I've moisturized my skin and then put on a silicone based primer like Smashbox or the Monistat Anti-Chafing Gel. My skin feels young, moisturized and so soft! I honestly think this can be used as your moisturizer AND your primer in one - what a concept!
Above is a picture of the consistency, and then below is a snapshot of the side of the box with details about the product and what is designed to do.
Have you tried this? What did you think?
I will say, I love this product. It works really well on my skin, leaves it feeling smooth and ready to go with makeup - no sticky feeling or residue afterwards. A full size is 1.0 oz and retails for $68 on Sephora's website.
