It’s the face mask that sent the internet into a frenzy. The bubble mask.
It’s your childhood bathtime meets spa experience – and four Mamamia staffers decided to put it to the test.
Watch the video playing above to see how the face mask experience played out.
We’re talking two men, two women, one mask – and a whole lot of bubbles (incidentally, many of which we swallowed).
Inspired by Korean beauty trends, the premise of the bubble mask is that they deeply clean your pores and remove all the dirt and oil. The formula reacts with the oxygen to create the bubbles, which allow the active ingredients of the mask to get deeper into your skin.
While many are liquid or cream formulas that you apply directly onto your skin, we tried Skin Republic’s Bubble and Charcoal Purifying Mask, $5.99, which combines a charcoal sheet mask with bubbly foam.
Watch what happened when we tried the masks in the video above.
Needless to say, we were all a little nervous.
I was convinced the bubbles wouldn’t stop growing and they’d eventually suffocate me. Luca, the “not a face mask kind of guy”, said he’d “already had an oxygen facial on his walk to work”.
