Fixing my Face: Masks, etc.

Right now I'm sitting here watching a rerun of Real Housewives of Atlanta and I've just painted on a layer of Caudalie's new Radiance Revealing Mask. It feels really nice, cooling, but still it's obvious there's something going on. I imagine the enzymes and fruit acids nomming my dead skin cells, nom nom nom. I'm trying this because I really like Caudalie products -- they tend to work really well and the all-natural botanical-based-ness of it seems less scarily chemical than some other treatments. My usual go-to mask is the Peter Thomas Roth Mega Rich Intensive Anti-Aging Cellular Moisture Mask that always reliably clarifies my skin, makes it look healthy, minimizes redness, stops dryness and cold-weather (or indoor heating) irritation and generally leaves my complexion glowing for at least four days afterwards. I never really used masks before, but then I went for an amazing facial last year at the Just Calm Down Spa where I peeked at the products the facialist was using, and a lot of them were Peter Thomas Roth. Now I try to use masks at least once a month when my face is looking a bit tired/dull. I'm excited to see how this Caudalie mask turns out, but I'll use it a few times before coming to any conclusions...
