If you've been paying attention to Facebook and other social platforms you've probably seen this new mask demo, which is where I saw it. This is the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask. This is some of the Korean skincare we're seeing that's making a huge impact right now in the makeup and skincare community. It's the newest "trend" as of right now, everyone wants some Korean skincare and for good reason. So far everything I've tried has been amazingly good. Sephora right now has a army of Korean skincare. This unfortunately isn't sold at Sephora. This is on Amazon and Ebay, it's on other sites as well but Amazon is where I'm comfortable directing you to. It's around $10.
Ingredients according to Amazon are: "green tea extract, aloe vera leaf extract, matcha powder, charcoal powder, pomegranate extract, fermented soy extract, alantoin, peony root extract, oregano leaf extract, white willow peel extract, portulaca extract, cinnamon extract"
The product is around 4 ounces I believe. It's quite a bit of product but you also have to apply quite a bit for it to spread evenly. You are supposed to put this over makeup or an uncleansed face. Wait 5 minutes for it to bubble (feels so strange), it applies grey and bubbles up like crazy. The bubbles act as an exfoliator to the skin. Which is why I love it. It doesn't scrub the face, scratch the skin or have a salty, sugary, residue left over. After the five minutes is up you rub the skin and the bubbles go away and reveal the paste again. Then rinse with "luke warm" water. Now, why I like this is because I had a medicine reaction a couple days prior to using this while I was in the hospital and for some reason it caused my nose to itch like crazy and then the skin started to peel like a bad sunburn. It didn't hurt or burn but it was annoyingly dry, flaky, and itchy. So I used this and it got rid of all that dead skin. Literally there was skin balled up on the washcloth. My skin was super soft. I didn't even apply it over makeup I actually used it on clean skin cause I didn't read the directions right. I've used this about 4-5 times and each time I really like how my skin feels, and my texture issues seem to get better. I will say it bubbles up pretty big so be careful around your eye, if you think your far enough away from the eye then go back even farther. The entire container is in Korean (I assume) so you'll have to go online for directions if mine weren't clear enough, unless you can read the container and in that case....awesome. This is a bit "trendy" and I assume it might fade out soon, BUT that doesn't change the fact that I think it's a really good mask, that's gentle and does a good job at getting rid of dead flaky skin. I will continue to use this because I find it works really well.
I have a video demonstrating it here if you'd like to check out how it looks and what it does.
