Please know that I will never fail to be seduced by new and innovative beauty products. Never mind that I have 5 other face masks at home. This one does something cool and different? Well, then I must have it. That is precisely how I felt about the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask when I saw it for the first time.
The Bubble Clay Mask is truly unlike any face mask I’ve tried, as it is carbonated and bubbles up on the surface of the skin. So kewl. I could not find this product anywhere on store shelves, so I ordered it from Korea via Amazon for about $15.
The Bubble Clay Mask is described as being both a deep-cleansing makeup remover and pore cleanser in one. With its special formulation of charcoal powder, it deeply penetrates the pores to thoroughly get rid of deep-seated dirt while supplying proper nutrients to keep the skin healthy and supple. In addition, the carbonated bubbles stimulate the skin to bring out a healthy glow. The mask contains carbonated water, charcoal, green tea and collagen.
When my Bubble Clay Mask arrived, I was super excited to try it out. I was pleased to see that it is a good size at 100g. It comes in a tightly sealed tub with a little spatula.
Because I am impatient, I was ready to give this a try without knowing exactly how to use it (all instructions are in Korean). However, my friend went online to find out the real directions before I delved in to it. You are supposed to begin with by applying a chestnut sized amount of the product to a dry face. May as well have been in Korean, because my knowledge of chestnuts is rather limited.
I applied the mask on my face and the thick clay immediately feels cool and soothing. It is easy to apply and spreads well, with or without the enclosed spatula.
Then, the magic begins to happen. The mask begins to froth up and tiny bubbles begin to form. It does not sting, tingle or make any kind of noise when this is happening. My friend said it felt like an Aero Bar on her face!
The bubbles will grow A LOT.
You should really apply this product sparingly as the bubbles will get big. The directions say to leave on for 5 minutes, but I left it on for about half an hour. Before rinsing I rubbed the clay all over my face as suggested to exfoliate further.
Unfortunately, this clay mask is a pain in the booty to wash off. I highly suggest going into the shower to rinse easily because over the sink will take some patience and elbow grease.
After the use of this mask, I definitely noticed that my skin was soft and bright. I think the clay also helped to regulate my oily T-Zone and minimize my pores.
I truly picked up the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask for its cool factor. I wanted to look like a bubble monster. Not only did I achieve this goal, but I really feel the mask had positive results on my skin. I’m really glad I was seduced this time.
