REVIEW: Carbonated bubble clay mask

A few weeks ago, I saw an ad pop up in my Facebook newsfeed for a carbonated bubble clay mask review. I watched this ad video for 2 minutes and still couldn’t quite figure out what was happening in it (yay for non-English product review videos with no subtitles!), so I decided to look for the face mask myself. I ended up purchasing the top-rated Korean product, Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated bubble clay mask, for under $11 off of Amazon. Here’s what my experience was like using face mask!

For starters, all of the labels on the box and the product itself are in Korean, so I had to look up instructions online for how to even use the face mask! Application was simple: paste on a thin, even layer of the mask on the face and let it sit for 5 minutes. The carbonation and bubbles formed quite quickly and it felt like my face was being tickled within the first 30 seconds of applying the mask. Once the bubbles start to pop (after the 5 minutes), wet your hands and gently massage the remainder of the mask on your face for another 2 minutes.

The product claims that the carbonated bubbles help to better clean out pores and blackheads, so I’m basing my review off of this claim on top of my overall experience with the face mask.

PROS
– Only 1/2 tbsp of product was required to create a full mask. With that said, at least 10 masks can be created from a single container of product, so ~$1/mask ain’t bad!
– Once the carbonated bubbles stopped popping, the underlying clay mask was really lightweight and felt great

CONS
– The carbonated bubbles were a bit overwhelming. The face mask “grew” to about a quarter of an inch in volume once on the face
– The bubbles are a bit messy. You can probably see from the photos above that the bubbled mask “grew” into my hairline and became hard to contain
– Claims of “better pore and blackhead cleaning” felt… meh. Having used other clay face masks, the level of cleaning didn’t seem noticeably better. I’d say the “cleaning level” was about the same

FINAL THOUGHTS
Given that the price point is the same as other comparable clay face masks available in the market and the average results, I would still recommend the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated bubble clay mask. It’s a fun – although a little messy – mask to use!

  • I’ve definitely seen this mask before, in my quest for K-Beauty products, and I’ve been intrigued but never pulled the trigger. The bubbles seem a bit overwhelming… I don’t know if I’m ready for that, haha!

    • The bubbles were definitely a lot more voluminous than I was ready for! You can see a bunch of them “grew” into my hairline in the photos… haha oops! I would definitely recommend using this face mask before a shower, or when in clothes that you’re ok with potentially getting messy. The whole process was fun, but a little messier than other clay masks I’ve tried in the past.
