"Can't decide if I looked more like a puffy cloud monster or that moon face emoji."
Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Clay Mask is originated from Korea, that had undeniably sparked a massive hype amongst beauty gurus from not only Asia but internationally. Many famous Youtubers and Bloggers have had their fun with this bubble mask and entertained me so much that I decided to get my own and experience it myself to see if it's really worth the hype. And here's my review on it >
What is that?
The Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask is just like your ordinary clay mask, just that this contains carbon which makes the mask bubble up. This mask acts as a deep cleanser due to the charcoal powder, and is also suppose to refine and tighten your pores. It is great on oily skin types as it helps control excess sebum, and the best part - it will definitely make you laugh a WHOLE LOT, so have fun with it 🌚
This bubble clay mask is made from all natural ingredients such as green tea, pomegranate extract, charcoal powder and other good stuff for you skin, and as misleading as the name sounds, there's absolutely no milk or pig-related ingredients in the mask, so don't you worry. Unless you're a Korean, if not, you might want to consult the internet to find out more because, besides the words "Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask", everything else is written in Korean on both the packaging and the product itself, so ya.
HOW CUTE IS THAT PIG.
It has a simple design of a palm sized container which comes with an air-tight lid (which I took off for the sake of this picture) as well as a little spatula which comes in real handy for scooping the right amount of product. Do make sure you don't leave the whole content exposed for too long because the mask bubbles up when exposed to oxygen.
The directions is pretty self-explanatory, my only advice is to go slow with the amount of product - or risk bubbles foaming up onto your eyes and nostrils. The consistency is rather jelly-like, and after applying an appropriate amount on your face for about 5 mins, it starts to bubble up and expand, turning you into a cloud monster. I definitely had a good laugh and I'm glad the mask didn't have an awful scent at all, so that's a good thing.
After about a good 10-15 mins of looking like a joke, I massage the remaining product on my face before washing it off. I usually do that when I'm about to shower because the mask do take a while to completely rinse off. While rinsing, it somehow felt more like a really thick and soapy face wash than a mask due to the lathering. I highly recommend using a facial sponge if you're not rinsing the mask off in the shower like me, because it requires a lot of water to wash everything off.
My skin does feel a little tight and dry after the treatment, so I went ahead to apply a layer of moisturizer and my skin soon became soft and dewy again. I noticed the redness on my face had significantly reduced and according to my mum, my face had became brighter and less dull as compared to before putting the mask. So kudos to you milky piggy! Now I see why this mask is so popular now! 🌚🌚🌚🌚🌚🌚🌚🌚🌚
It is a super fun mask to pamper yourself with that will undoubtedly provide you with a barrel of laughter, and needless to say that it is wallet friendly as well. I bought mine at $15 SGD at Hermo Singapore which I think it's pretty worth it considering the huge amount of product and the impressive results it gives. Just remember to have your moisturizer on standby to apply afterwards. It says that it is suitable for all skin types, but I would recommend people who has sensitive skin to test it on a small area first before going full faced in case it might be a little too harsh on your skin. Overall I'll rate it a 8.5 out of 10!
