How do Bubble Masks Work?

(Quick note to my readers: I’m super sorry about my lack of posting lately. I am busy finishing up my last month of college and have not been able to prioritize posting recently. Just wanted to drop a quick note that I appreciate all of those who follow me on social media and take time of our their lives to read my posts. Hope you enjoy this post!)

Yes, I know what you’re thinking – bubble masks are just as much fun as they sound. I bought myself the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask with Christmas money and I’m very happy with my purchase. I use the mask about once a week, typically after working out where I’ll sit in my sports bra and watch the bubbles grow before I shower. These masks have been all the rage lately, and I’m here to explain how they work!

what makes bubble masks – bubble?

Bubble masks are also referred to as “bubbling oxygen” or “carbonated” masks, they contain ingredients called perfluorocarbons. Beauty MechanismThese ingredients work by dissolving oxygen; so the oxygen found in our skin and in the air react with perfluorocarbons, which causes the oxygen to convert into a gas and produce a bubble. This process is very similar to how carbonated drinks like soda and sparkling water work. Methyl Perfluoroisobutyl Ether is the perfluorocarbon used in my Elizavecca Milky bubble mask.


my “bubbling” review 

Many beauty and skin care fanatics use this mask purely based on the product’s appearance. I will personally admit that my skin doesn’t feel amazing or look any better after using it, but it is relaxing and the bubbles are extremely fun to Snapchat. Many users cite that this mask helps clean out their pores, which I would credit to the clay used in this formulation. The ingredients charcoal powder, white clay, and bentonite are known to help clear and tighten pores. Additional ingredients including green tea, lavender, chamomile, peppermint, and freesia extracts make this a lovely mask to treat yo’ skin to. With a price tag of ~$8, I would 100% recommend this mask to anyone looking for a gentle clean, something fun and relaxing to try. Warning to all, the clay makes this a particularly hard to wash off, so I’d recommend using before jumping in the shower to make the cleanup process easier.
