Peter Thomas Roth Detox Hydrating and Soothing Kit

Cucumber has long been sought after as an ingredient for detoxing the body and de-puffing the eye area.  This kit includes everything cucumber to help cleanse and soothe.  The foaming cleanser detoxifies skin of impurities.  The Cucumber Gel Mask is a gentle gel that helps hydrate dry skin with botanical extracts of papaya, chamomile, pineapple, aloe and more.  My favorite, the Cucumber De-Tox De-Puffing Eye-Cubes contain cucumbers, arnica, green tea, chamomile, aloe, caffeine and hyaluronic acid in a freezable formula to help reduce the look of puffiness and dark circles. The Cucumber De-Tox Bouncy Hydrating Gel forms an invisible matte veil to melt into skin, which helps skin to retain moisture.  Visit for buying information.
