BEAUTY REVIEW: Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Mask - Irish Moor Mud - Peter Thomas Roth

BEAUTY REVIEW: Peter Thomas Roth Irish Moor Mud Mask

If you read my recent Sephora Haul post which you can read here, you will know that my partner, Colm, recently went to Las Vegas on a stag weekend and brought me back the Peter Thomas Roth Mask – A – Holic Kit which I have been dying to try. It contains 5 masks, one of which is the Irish Moor Mud Mask which I have read some rave reviews about and then some not so great reviews.

Naturally as a face mask lover (don’t believe me, read here, here and here), I had to get my hands on it to try it out!

The key ingredients and benefits as stated by Ulta are:

  • Irish Moor Mud – The result of the natural decomposition of herbs, flowers and plants over a period of thousands of years, this mud paste has an unusually high concentration of purifying bio-minerals, trace elements, vitamins, amino acids, and fatty acids.

  • Hijiki Seaweed – This black sea vegetable grows wildly along the coasts of Japan, Korea and China and has been used abundantly for centuries. Provides nutrition and hydration and contains high levels of calcium, iron, and vitamins B1, B2, and C.

  • Volcanic Ash and Activated Charcoal – Contains healing minerals that detoxify, revitalize, and draw out trapped impurities and toxins from clogged pores (shrinking their appearance) for cleaner, more breathable, deeply-purified skin.


I applied this mask evenly across my face after I had cleansed. I left it on for 10 minutes and then wiped it off with warm water and a wash cloth. This mask is a mud so it’s consistency is that of mud and a little goes a LONG way!  I could feel this tingle on my skin, the longer I left it on, which I quite liked as I knew then that it was working its magic.

This mask does not dry, or at least didn’t for me, but I don’t think it’s supposed too. When the mask is on, it feels like it is really moisturizing and hydrating my skin. When I took the mask off after 10 minutes, my skin felt really clean and soft. It was also brighter and clear.

I enjoyed using this mask and I did notice a difference after using it. It wasn’t a substantial difference like say for instance when I used the Glam Glow Super Mud Mask but it was a noticeable difference and enough of a difference that I would purchase this product again.

A major plus for the mask is that it contains no parabens, sulfates or phthalates.

The set of 5 masks that my partner gifted me was $75 US but this mask alone retails for $58 US ( and or $130 AU ( for 150ml.
