Peter Thomas Roth Loves Asia!!
Read on to hear all about the fabulous event I attended for Peter Thomas Roth in their Park Avenue offices where editors and beauty lovers gathered to hear about Peter Thomas Roth Clinical Skincare, with emphasis on the Asian market. I had the opportunity to meet other Asian writers and beauty insiders as well as sample the latest additions to their skincare line. We mingled over cucumber infused water and rosé, in honor of the rose and cucumber – the ingredients which inspired their new Rose Stem Cell Collection and Cucumber Gel Mask. More on these later!
It was such an honor to meet the founder and owner, Peter Thomas Roth himself, as he presented the collection and spoke about the best selling products in Asia and new items for this Spring. Even before this event I was a big fan of their line but after hearing more about their formulation and learning about Peter’s story, I am now an even bigger proponent! Peter’s passion for skincare is an integral part of his Hungarian heritage, where skincare, basic soothing, and healing philosophies are most essential. When he decided to launch his own brand he blended together these Hungarian philosophies along with modern technology and ingredients specifically targeting his own personal issues with acne, the many signs of aging, as well as protecting the skin from sun damage. His mission became to combine effective and potent ingredients with advanced technology. And he has definitely done this as evidenced by his high quality formulations and lines targeting these specific concerns. I was also pleased to learn that along with his wife that also helps run the company, they own the laboratory in which all products are developed using the best sourced ingredients and ensuring the most effective percentages of these active ingredients.
Peter Thomas Roth has grown dramatically in Asia over the past few years, and I was so happy to hear that it is the number one selling brand in Sephora China! They are also sold in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Thailand, and Malaysia. I had no idea that it was becoming such a popular brand and excited to hear that his line works well with Asian skin, especially his cleansers, toners, and oil free moisturizers. For spring emphasis on gel masks like the Rose Stem Cell Mask uses biotechnology which replicates the perfect rose stem for anti-aging repair and the Radiance Oxygenating Masque which promises radiant skin by whitening, hydrating and oxygenating skin cells for a flawless complexion are perfect examples. I am most excited to try the award winning Firm Growth Factor Extreme Neuropeptide Serum and the Chamomile Cleansing Lotion which is their best seller in Asia.
Gossip Girl’s Kelly Rutherford As the New Face of PTR!!!
The other favorite part of this event was getting to meet the lovely celebrity spokesmodel, Kelly Rutherford. I must say I was struck by her amazing flawless skin, not to mention flashbacks of scenes from Gossip Girl (and Melrose Place!), which I am proud to admit was one of my favorite shows of all time. I used to obsess over the wardrobes of all the cast members and the exciting drama that unfolded season after season, so sad it ended! Kelly was always so elegant and impeccably dressed and I must say in person she is just as beautiful. She shared with us her favorite products and even took photos with us all, and yes of course “selfies” at the close of the event.
Please stay tuned to read my upcoming product reviews, I’m so excited to start incorporating them in my skincare routine and will report back soon!
