I’m the kind of person that hates washing my face. There, I said it.
There’s something about having product in my face as I blindly splash water up in the hopes of rinsing everything clean.
When I saw The Creme Shop carbonated bubbling oxygen clay mask I was intrigued. I’ve used bubbling sheet masks in the past and have liked them, but this one was more than just a sheet mask.
Here are the claims off their website:
All-in-one cleanses, exfoliates, unclogs pores.
Our Bubble Bubble, No More Trouble Carbonated Bubbling Oxygen Clay Mask is a powerful all-in-one that deeply cleanses, exfoliates skin of dead skin cells, blackheads, and unclogs pores by removing dirt, oil, and sebum.
Additional nutrients like Collagen, Green Tea, and Lavender replenish and smooths the skin for a soft complexion and youthful glow.
That’s quite a bit of action!
I had a CVS 40% off coupon so I decided to try it. I thought maybe the bubbling action would make it exciting enough for me to want to wash my face.
Day 1: I wasn’t sure what to expect so I applied a layer just thick enough to cover my face. I rubbed it on using my fingers and waited for it to do its magic. It didn’t take long to start to tingle, not in a bad way, and bubble and soon the five minutes were up and it was time to see the results. I could tell it had removed all of my makeup, avoid eye contact (and make sure your mouth is fully closed, this doesn’t have a pleasant taste) but it left my skin feeling dry.
I used it again the next day, this time using a thicker layer of product
I noticed more bubbles this time, and it was easier to rub off as I rinsed my face but again, it left my skin feeling very dry and stripped.
I’ll have to continue using it to see if it’s something my skin needs to adapt to or if it’s too harsh for daily use.
Overall I think it’s a cute idea that works well. I can’t decide if I would recommend this yet because of how dry my face is left.
