MASK MONDAY: BLISS SKINCARE


I wanted to pop on the blog to do a quick review of some at home masking I have done lately. I am by NO means a skincare expert, but I spend a lot of time taking care of my face and testing out different masks that are extremely #budgetfriendly so I thought I would fill you in on my thoughts on my mask collection by Bliss. In the above photo, I am wearing Pore Patrol, which is their "four-clay souffle mask." I love this mask. It is definitely my favorite of their suite. This mask is a mud mask in a souffle mask form. It feels amazing, sets smooth, but comes out in a foamy pump that goes on as a clay. I don't know if I'm doing a good job describing it, but basically it's a clay mask without the heaviness and messiness of a clay mask. I apply it from the pump, sit for 10-20 minutes, and rinse. Now, don't get me wrong, the rinse has all the mess of a mud mask, but I've had sebaceous pores on my nose (google those if you think you have stubborn blackheads) for most of my life, and within three months of using this, they are virtually nonexistent.

Mighty Marshmallow: This one is advertised as a "bright and radiant whipped mask," and I would have to say that I find that description to be accurate! This is actually the product that I used up the most quickly. It is somewhat similar to a mud mask in that it feels like it does some work on pore clearing, but it doesn't set hard and uncomfortable like a mud mask. So while being slightly less effective, I found it more user friendly. It is also super quick to remove, and we all know that this is not the case with clay masks. I purchased a second jar as soon as I got through my first.

Triple Oxygen: This is a foamy mask that you apply to wet skin and is designed to brighten skin with the oxygen in its bubbly consistency. This mask is by far the easiest to use. It's a 2-5 minute mask as opposed to a 15-20 minute mask as the others have been, and I put it on every time I take a bath because your skin needs to be wet in order to create the foam, and sometimes I even do it while I condition my hair in the shower. It's very relaxing and you can feel your skin tingling and bubbling while you have it on. In terms of actual effectiveness, I can't say that I really noticed any changes in my skin while using this product.

In the Honey: This is supposed to be their mega hydrating mask, and I have to say that it does not disappoint in that respect! It leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated and I find that I reach for my moisturizer less frequently when I am masking with this product 2-3 times per week, as opposed to the mud mask which makes me moisturize more often. However, the consistency of this is kind of sticky, which I do not like. It also requires some scrubbing to remove completely from the skin (I use my Foreo). It's a great moisturizing mask for this price, but I do not love the texture.

Bliss X Pop & Suki The Real Peel Trio: This is a set that I picked up a little while before Thanksgiving, so it is the newest Bliss product in my arsenal. The three masks each have different uses- exfoliation, detoxification and brightening. So far, my favorite use for these is multi masking. I can exfoliate on my nose while I detoxify my forehead and brighten my cheeks. This system really makes me feel like I have my life together. The masks themselves are pretty easy to apply for peel masks and it's simple to get a thin coating on the desired areas. The peeling is a different story. They do NOT peel off for me, no matter how hard I try. If I apply it unnecessarily thick, it doesn't set enough to peel. If I apply the thin layer, I end up scratching my skin off trying to get it to peel. I can occasionally successfully get chunks, but it is never efficient. I know the peeling is part of the benefit of peel masks, but honestly I usually end up just washing these off with my Foreo.

I just bought the new Mint Chip Mania this weekend, so stay tuned for an update.
