So, I posted about this mask a couple of days ago on my Instagram and I know several of you are looking forward to the review so here it is!
First, let me start off with the price, so the mask is $14 at Target or Walmart, and I’m sure that you can find it at any store that sells ELF products. Personally, it is slightly pricey to me being on a medical school student budget. I try to keep my beauty product purchases down to $10 an item at the moment. Also, as a disclaimer, this product was sent to me for free through the Influenster program, so I did not purchase it myself the first time. I did but it again after I finished the first one, and I will tell you why.
Most beauty masks are at least $10 or more and if you go for more higher priced products at specialty cosmetics stores like Ulta and Sephora, they would be 20 dollars or more, so with that in mind, I thought it was a good buy, but for an ELF product, mmm I was a little iffy on if it should have quite reached 14, I feel like $8-$11 would have been more reasonable, but that’s besides the point!
What is a bubble mask used for?
The mask is actually double duty – it is both cleansing and moisturizing! Personally, I would use the mask after I have washed my face and then do it. However, if you didn’t wear makeup that day or wore very light makeup then I would say it is appropriate to use the mask for both, other than that the mask will not wash off a full face of makeup on its own. Nevertheless, masks are not supposed to be really used for cleansing so I was not disappointed by this feature.
How do you use the mask?
Okay, so after a long night of studying, I would wipe my makeup off my face, wash my face with cleansing soap with my Clarisonic Mia ( I have the Mia 2), and then use the mask. So, I make sure my skin is fully cleansed before applying the mask. Then the directions are fairly straightforward on the container, so you dispense the product in your hand and rub it on lightly damp skin. You don’t actually rub it in your skin, but you spread it on your face. It starts to fizz immediately, so you want to spread it rather quickly. Then, you let it sit on your skin for 5-10 minutes, THEN after all the bubbling is over, you massage and rinse with warm water. 🙂
What is your final verdict?
The mask leaves your skin feeling super refreshed and hydrated, so I LOVED to use it after a long day. I have oily skin, and I feel like the mask helped with oil control the day after I used the product. It is AWESOME for sensitive skin, and your skin will be looking bomb the next day if you follow it up with an A+ moisturizer (I use Cetaphil). So for the quality, the price is worth it, of course there are other high class bubble masks, but for a medical student budget, this will do the trick!
