REVIEW: Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask

Personally, I love having an extensive skincare routine. I find slathering creams, essences, masks, and the like on my face to be very therapeutic and relaxing. It's my little down time out of the day to calm down and put my mind at ease. Despite finding skincare to be enjoyable, I've rarely come across a product that has actually made it FUN. Today, I'll be reviewing one of the most fun products I have tried to date that brings complete and utter joy to my day (and skin)! It's a hidden gem among clay masks: The Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask (I know, it's a mouthful) courtesy of Memebox.com!




WHAT'S THE ELIZAVECCA MILKY PIGG CARBONATED BUBBLE CLAY MASK?

This is no ordinary run-of-the-mill basic clay mask... It's a bubbling clay mask! What's that you ask? Well, it's exactly what it sounds like! It's a self-foaming clay mask that not only clears your pores and cleanses your face but it's also incredibly fun to use!



This bubble clay mask is both a deep-cleansing makeup remover and pore cleanser in one! With its special formulation of charcoal powder, it deeply penetrates the pores to thoroughly get rid of deep-seated dirt while supplying proper nutrients to keep the skin healthy and supple.






REVIEW

Packaging and Design:
The Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask comes in a clear, semi-opaque plastic tub with a light taupe colored cap that easily twists off. The packaging of the box and the tub itself is so darn cute! There's an adorable little piggy on the cover and the top of the cap wearing a mud mask! :D Twisting off the cap, reveals a second layer that houses a clear plastic cover over the mask to keep air from coming in and a miniature white spatula.



Ease of Use:
This product is as easy to use as any other clay mask! The spatula that's included can be used to scoop out the product, and it can also be used to apply the product all over your face. I found it a whole lot easier using the spatula to spread the clay across my skin rather than my fingers, because 1. It can be really messy using your fingers! and 2. I found that it goes on a lot easier and smoother. Using the spatula, spread a thin layer evenly on a dry, uncleansed face. Remember, this mask removes make-up and dirt so you don't need to bother washing your face beforehand!

This is a mask that you have to be quick with since it starts bubbling up the moment air is exposed to it. After applying the mask, you just let it do it's work for 5 whole minutes! It'll start bubbling all by itself and let me warn you: it TICKLES A LOT! LOL I had to keep fighting the urge to scratch my face because it was so tickle-ish and tingly.


After 5 minutes have passed, gently press down on the bubble and massage it all over your face to melt down dirt. NOW, here is a very important tip I want to let you guys know. If you massage the mask all over you face with dry hands, a weird slimey film will cover your whole face which is totally fine except the fact that it's incredibly difficult to wash off! I made this mistake the first time using this mask and it took me like 20 minutes trying to wash it off my entire face. The water just kept bouncing off and wouldn't get the slimey film off! It might work if you wanted to use a towel, facial brush, or konjac sponge to scrub it off in addition to the water, but that's a bit of extra work. INSTEAD, I recommend that you guys first wet your hands and fingertips BEFORE massaging it in. This dilutes the mud mask while also letting you get the full effect of the mask. It's 100x easier to wash off your face too! :)


Texture and Scent:
The texture is probably the coolest part of the mask besides the part where it foams up! The Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask has a gooey, slimey, pudding-like texture that feels surprisingly relaxing on the skin. It's a very cooling and thick mud mask that's really easy to spread across the face.


The scent of this product is difficult for me to describe. It doesn't smell like most clay masks out there on the market. Instead, it has a unique mixture of scents: slightly floral, with some hints of herbal, and a slightly chemical scent to it too. I can't quite put my finger on it, but it's not totally disgusting, and it's also not my favorite scent. It's bearable and the smell isn't as intense when you apply it.


Effectiveness:
This mask is super effective in removing all the dirt, makeup, and gunk from my skin! After rinsing off this mask, I'm left with skin that's as smooth as a baby's bottom and I could not stop stroking my face. My skin also felt completely rejuvenated and clean, like everything was gone! There wasn't anything left on my face at all and I even noticed that sebum deep in my pores, aka my blackheads, disappeared! My face looked and felt spotless. What's great about this mask is that even though it tightens your pores, it doesn't dry out your face nor does it make your skin unbearably tight. I didn't feel like it striped my skin of its natural oils either.

Here is the mask in all its bubbling glory... I know, I couldn't stop laughing the whole time either hehe :)


Here is what it looks like after pressing down on the bubbles, and before rubbing it in:


I proceeded to wet my hands and fingertips before rubbing in the mask to dilute it a bit:

Overall, I freaking LOVE this mask!

It's important to me to have skincare that's equally effective as it is enjoyable, because then it'll be a product you'll WANT to use over and over again besides being like a chore or boring old routine!
