Review and Directions: Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask

I was first introduced to this product after seeing it on one of the beautiful members of a PoC only facebook group I'm in. My intrigue got the better of me so I decided to try it out too - I got mine from Amazon here.

The name of this bubble clay mask leads you to believe it's a bit of a 'weird' product. Elizavecca is a Korean skincare brand that has some interesting products and has received rave reviews. This one in particular is formulated with carbonated water (which massages pores), mud, charcoal and clay (which remove excessive dirt and sebum and tighten pores)  - all ingredients which are renowned for being great for the skin. It also contains lots of natural ingredients such as green tea and pomegranate (both amazing antioxidants).

As you can see mine is fairly used. The thick glue like paste is protected by a lid, a mini spatula and then the screw top lid. The spatula comes in handy as this will bubble up fast! On a clean face I applied a medium thick layer over my face taking care around my nose, eyes and mouth. Don't get too close as the bubbling might get in the way!

So you will feel a bit like Santa when you have this mask on. The first time I used it, it tingled on my skin a LOT. I took it off after around 5 minutes as the tingling was making my skin feel itchy. I think that was more the shock of the sensation as I had no adverse reaction to my skin.

To remove the mask you have 2 options. You can either dampen your fingers and massage the bubbles back into your skin then remove with a warm wet flannel. Or you can just remove the bubbles with a warm wet flannel. I wouldn't advise trying to remove this just by washing your face. I'd assume it'd just make a paste and you'd end up scrubbing more to get it off. I've never had any problems removing with a wash cloth/flannel.

Afterwards my skin feels super squeaky clean and my pores felt tightened. The only thing is my skin does tend to fee a little TOO clean where it's feeling borderline dry. I like to follow this mask with a Manuka honey mask or a hydrating sheet mask.

Overall,  really like this mask. I did think it was gonna just be gimmicky but it's actually helping my skin an awful lot and I haven't had a breakout since I started using this (touch wood)
I'm really intrigued by the other Elizavecca products so may be investing in some of those soon!

Have you tried this mask or a bubble mask before? What did you think?
