Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Cream Review

I'd like to introduce you to my luxury favorite facial moisturizer. I have been using it for more than 6 months now, have repurchased, and cannot see myself without it. Meet Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Cream.

Last fall, I started experiencing breakouts with facial care products containing coconut oil. Coconut oil is considered highly comedogenic. I had never experienced pore clogging and acne breakouts with it before, but all of a sudden my skin began to experience what many others go through. When I stopped using products with coconut oil on my face, the problem cleared up. Note - I still can apply cleansers with coconut oil on my face(this has been my go-to cleanser for nearly a year), but these rinse off clean and don't remain on the skin like a moisturizer.

I needed to find a new moisturizer that was free of this ingredient. I was sent a Good to Glow kit from Peter Thomas Roth several months ago. Among the great items inside was a jar of Water Drench and I immediately fell in love. This is a coconut oil free moisturizer that gives your skin a lit from within glow.

How I use it:

This is, for me, a year 'round cream. I just use it a bit differently in the winter when the heat is on and the fireplace is burning. Both zap moisture from my skin, so I apply this morning (under my suncreen) and night (over my retinol serum). In the summertime, my skin is more oily and I use this only at night.

What is in it?

Why I love it

A little goes a long with this lightweight gel cream. Yes, it is $52, but it lasts longer than any moisturizer I have had in a jar/bottle of the same size. My favorite things about this:

  • Fragrance free - This is important to me. I do not use facial skincare products with artificial fragrance. 
  • Cooling and soothing - This feels amazing on my skin. It truly soothes the skin and my skin just drinks it in, feeling comforted and pampered with each application.
  • Doesn't pill under makeup - Don't you hate it when that happens? There is nothing worse in the morning when you are in a hurry than applying foundation over your moisturizer and having it ball up. This cream from PTR is fast absorbing and doesn't interfere with makeup. 
  • Perfect consistency - This is my ideal formulation. It is both rich and lightweight at the same time. My skin is adequately moisturized without it feeling heavy or sticky.
  • Keeps my skin hydrated - The packaging claim says that it will help lock in hydration for up to 72 hours. I haven't gone that long without it, so I cannot say with certainty that this is true. However, my skin feels consistently hydrated.
  • Ideal for all skin types - Yep. Whether your skin is oily or dry, this will work for you.

 The Chic & Green Bottom Line

Does Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Cloud Cream live up to its hype? YES, unequivocally! I am sent freebies at least two days a week from skincare brands. I do not NEED to purchase products. I rarely do, as there is always something in my arsenal. However, I have repurchased this and will do so again. I give this a 5 star rating and can recommend to all skin types.
