Hello everyone! It is time for another “________ Made Me Buy It!” This time, YouTube made me buy the K-Beauty Bubble Clay Mask from Elizavecca. Read on for the review!
What it is and why I bought it:
This mask is definitely a fun, gimmicky product, as it turns into foam on your face! Other than the label, there is no english on it, so the correct application is mostly up to you. I have seen people say it’s good for removing makeup or for cleansing pores, but I think it probably has a few other benefits as well. However, I was a bit skeptical, even though I saw a lot of YouTube videos with people saying how much they liked it. I figured I’d give it a try and I am happy to tell you that I am in love with it and I am so very pleased that I bought it!
I got mine off of Amazon for between $10 and $12.
What it looks like:
When you open the container, you see an inside lid that holds a small spatula, and once you remove the lid, you see the grayish green product. My favorite way to apply it is to scoop a bit of product onto my hands and spread it on my face. It bubbles quite rapidly, and applying it with your hands instead of with the spatula keeps it from bubbling before you’re done. It has a really refreshing smell, and feels cool on your face, so it’s great after a hot summer afternoon or a long day at work.
What it does:
Once spreading it on your face, it starts to bubble immediately. It tickles horribly, but leave it on, I promise it’s working! Remove after about 5 minutes, or after it has bubbled quite a bit. Definitely use a washcloth to wash it off, because the bottom layer (that has not turned into foam yet) is harder to get off and is quite sticky. I love to use it a few times a week to remove my foundation and cleanse my pores. My skin has been a lot happier when I use this and my other mask (from Ulta, I’ll do a review soon!) a few times a week!
Should you get it?
It’s a really great product to remove face (NOT eye) makeup or to do a deep cleanse. It DOES irritate some skin types. Mine is somewhat sensitive and combo/dry, and it doesn’t irritate my skin at all or dry it out. It did irritate my sister’s skin, so I would suggest giving it a test run with a patch test before covering your entire face with it, and remove if it starts to burn. Most skin types shouldn’t be irritated with this mask, though.
I would suggest giving it a try if:
- You are looking for a quick mask to cleanse your skin or remove makeup.
- You do not have extremely sensitive skin.
- You are looking for a fun, Korean beauty product to try.
- You don’t want to spend a lot of money on skincare.
- You don’t have overly dry skin (it doesn’t seem to dry skin out but it’s not very hydrating).
Overall, I think it’s a great mask that I will enjoy thoroughly and possibly even repurchase! It’s reasonably priced and, as long as you apply moisturizer afterwards (as you should after applying any mask), good for most skin types.
