Calling all mask lovers! No matter what skin type you have, you are guaranteed to adore this mask. This is the carbonated bubble clay mask, and it is the fastest and most entertaining mask that I currently own.
To be honest, when I first purchased this, I thought it was kind of gimmicky, and I really didn’t have high hopes, but I ended up loving it. When you first open it up, it looks like any typical clay mask. It’s a dark grey charcoal color, and very thick in consistency. It comes with a little applicator that looks like a tiny spatula, and that’s what I used to apply. As underwhelming as the spatula looks, it was actually the best way to apply this mask in order to get the best results and the smoothest application.
With this mask, it is imperative that you act FAST, because it won’t wait for you! Within 10-15 seconds of applying the product, it began to change in color and bubble up a little bit. By the time I finished applying it all over my face, I looked like I had just dunked myself in a sea of bubbles… and I was LIVING for it. Like I said before, this is a fast-acting mask, so you are only required to leave it on for about 5 minutes, while most other clay masks that I’ve tried usually require 15-20 minutes.
As I let the mask sit on my face, I watched the bubbles grow and grow. I also felt A TON of tickling from the mask bubbling so much. I liked this because it gave me the satisfaction of knowing that the mask was doing something. I could very clearly see and feel it. After my five minutes of intense bubbling was up, I began to massage the product into my skin until all of the bubbles were gone, as instructed. This turned the mask back to its original dark charcoal color, and I was ready to wash it off. I will say, it was a little bit difficult to wash it off with just warm water. I did end up using a wet wash cloth to help remove it, and patted it dry with a clean towel.
After the mask was all washed away, it was time to assess my skin, and I was very pleasantly surprised. I immediately noticed that my skin felt very soft, and I could see that the mask did a pretty good job at cleaning my pores. Have I tried masks that cleaned my pores a little bit better? Yes, absolutely. Will I do this mask again? Yes. Personally, I believe that this mask was worth it for a few different reasons. First and foremost, I think that this product was very innovative and fun. The bubbles were highly entertaining, and I loved watching them and feeling like the mask was working. Secondly, it was very quick to do. The mask only sits on your skin for a total of five minutes, so it saved a lot of time compared to other masks which tend to sit for 15-20 minutes. Most importantly, I loved this mask because after only five minutes, it left my skin feeling very clean, and that is exactly what I was looking for. My face felt fresh, I was entertained, and left happy!
