I never say no to a face mask, so much so that I use one at least two to three times a week. And while I still adore the convenience of a sheet mask, like everything else, they’ve become a little, well, routine. That is until I tried Rodial’s Snake Oxygenating & Cleansing Bubble Mask.
Not only does it have the same no-fuss no-muss approach unique to sheet masks, inside the individualized pouch is a black cloth-like mask that feels softer than its typical counterparts. And there are bubbles.
Yes, that’s right, the mask actually bubbles. It’s the formulation’s claim to fame. Bubble masks have something of a trend, especially for skincare-loving Instagrammers looking to document their #selfcareSunday routines. You’ll probably remember when the masks went viral, with users posting pics wearing K-beauty bubble masks that puffed up to Michelin Man effect.
The Rodial bubble mask, meanwhile, is soaked in deep-cleansing bamboo charcoal and oxygen bubbles, which detoxifies skin, unclogs pores, sloughs off dead skin cells and eliminates excess oil — all while bubbling up into a frothy white foam that covers my forehead, cheeks, nose and chin. I can actually feel the bubbles forming and growing on my face. With the addition of collagen, ceramide, peptides, hyaluronic acid and vitamins A and E, this mask also plumps up skin, eliminating the appearance of fine lines and creating a smooth, youthful-looking surface in less than 15 minutes. (And don’t fear the word “snake” in the name — it actually refers to Rodial’s signature “Synake” dipeptide, which is said to help “freeze” the look of fine lines and wrinkles.)
Plus, there’s no after-mask clean up. I just peel the sheet off, splash a little water on my face and enjoy the results. Yup, bubbles are fun.
