Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask, 100g
Bought for: Free | Original Price (Discounted): P550
From: Althea Philippines
Claims: Formulated with carbonated water, collagen, green tea and charcoal. Carbonated water helps revitalizes complexion, make it glowing, firms and tightens the skin, removes dead skin cells, purify the pores, makes skin smooth and supple, etc. Collagen is essential for the health and appearance of your skin, and this protein is also necessary to reduce the typical signs of aging. Green Tea is also an important building block for elasticity, and its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Green Tea contains a high amount of antioxidants as well as enzymes, amino acids, and phytochemicals like polyphenols. It also has B vitamins, folate, manganese, potassium, magnesium and caffeine. Activated charcoal draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, helping you to achieve a flawless complexion and fight acne. Charcoal is not metabolized, adsorbed or absorbed by the body, but it can be used to treat some poisonous bites and disinfect some wounds. Activated charcoal powder is proven to adsorb thousands of times its own mass in harmful substances, which makes it a popular ingredient in facial masks.
Hi, everyone! I know that with the Korean skin care trend, you're wishing for more Korean product reviews so here's one for you! This time, I am going to review Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask! By the way, I already provided the skin benefits of the key ingredients of this product, courtesy of our favorite search engine, Google of course! Lol!
First, the packaging looks very simple and again, the description on the body of the product is kind of useless for someone who does not read Korean like me. I hope there's an English translation provided so I will know what's it for. You know, searching online is a bit of a hassle but it's about gaining more information and experiences from other bloggers who have already tried it. Okay, let's be that forgiving. The product has 100g of formula so I kind of expect that it's too bulky and seems to not be so travel-friendly, unless of course, you could and is willing to spare some space for this should you wish to bring it while you travel.
I can't read the description and everything so I really don't know what to say. Lucky you if you know Korean that is why I took a photo of what's written on the box and on the product so you will have a reference.
I really like that it comes with a flat spatula, at least, the hygienic factor is there, right? With this, I do not need to use my bare hands and probably dirty hands to get some product and put it on my face. You know I have this habit to wash my face, pat it dry, do some chores before applying masks. You get the picture, don't you? There's no way I am gonna let all the bacteria spread to my face and cause more troubles on my skin now that it's not getting any better.
And since it comes with a spatula, the application has been a lot easier as I could use the spatula not only to scoop the product from the container but to spread the product evenly on the face too while I wait for it to do its wonders. Moreover, the container has an almost transparent inner lid and a space for the applicator which is nice as it could act as an extra protector so the product won't easily spill. etc.
When opened, you will immediately catch a whiff of something mild and gentle formula which I happen to like. As you can see, the product has the color of gray (grayer in person) which I presume to be because of the charcoal. The consistency is really creamy and thick, almost like goo which applies really smoothly on the skin. Spreading the product is easy using the spatula but sometimes, spreading it even more on the skin with the help of fingers while gently massaging it in circular strokes yields better experience and effects as the motion could aid in better absorption of the nutrients found in the product.
Usually, I apply a generous amount of this product on my face using the spatula (at least 1/2 teaspoon for reference) before bedtime after cleansing my face and made sure it's already patted dry. Then, I would let it sit for about 10 minutes. By then, the product already turned to a foamy/bubbly texture, hence, the name. It looks like I had bubble mask on my face which I find really cute. Haha! After all areas of my face have been covered in foam, that's the time I would massage it on my face for about 2-3 minutes to seal in the nutrients on my pores. After that, I would again leave the product on my skin for the next 5-10 minutes before rinsing it off.
After rinsing my face, I would always notice how it became radiant and glowing after almost 30 minutes of soaking my face with this mask. It also feels soft, smooth and supple. Using it at least twice to thrice a week did not cause me any adverse reaction like terrible zits (except when that time of the month comes) or skin irritation of any kind. However, aside from the instant radiant skin, I did not notice any significant lightening of my pimple marks, dark spots and blemishes on the face, It also did not heal pimples nor prevent them from coming. I did not expect this to work that way too because almost all the wash off masks I tried only yields me glowing skin which by the way, is not permanent of course. Like bad hair days, we all have bad skin days.
Because according to Althea, Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask is a best seller so I though back then that I should take the chance and buy two of these when it gets even more discounted. Now, I had to sell the other one because I just don't think buying this product is really economical provided that it only makes my skin radiant, soft and smooth and does not really heal my main skin problems which are oiliness, pimples and uneven skin tone. For now, I am interested to discover more products that would address these problems and of course, you'll be the first to know when I found them! ;)
Til my next post! Happy blogging!
