Unless you’ve been oblivious to social media and all it’s viral posts, you definitely have seen the infamous bubble mask many people have been posting. It’s the really cool mask that you put on like any other face mask you’ve ever used, but the fun part comes after waiting a couple minutes to see bubble forming on your face. After you’ve waited about 10 minutes, the mask should be leaving your face full of bubbles.  

This has many people intrigued and wondering if this really works. The fact that a mask forms bubbles on your face over time has people thinking if it does what it’s suppose to. Brands such as Dr. Brandt and Elf both have their versions of the magnet mask, the only difference clearly being the price.

The Dr. Brandt Oxygen Facial Flash Recovery Mask retails at Sephora for $70. It is said to leave the skin purified, illuminated, and overall revitalized. The Elf Beauty Hydrating Bubble Mask retails at the drugstore for $14, a much more reasonable price point compared to the Dr. Brandt one. This mask should leave your skin hydrated, glowing, and replenished.

We decided to purchase the Elf mask because it is at a very reasonable price point compared to the Dr. Brandt mask. After cleansing our faces, we applied a thin layer of the mask onto our face, making sure the product was distributed evenly. Almost instantly, foam started forming on the face and the clear gel began to turn white. After leaving the mask on for about 10 minutes, the foam started to fade and sink into the skin, making it feel very tacky. It was definitely more soapy and foamy, instead of a bubble mask.

Once the bubbles started going away and the 10 minutes were up, we washed off the mask with warm water. It was a little difficult to wash off the mask because the gel was thick and it took a while. The mask left our face feeling a little dry and tight, before we applied moisturizer, instead of being hydrating like it says it’s suppose to. All in all, we wouldn’t recommend this mask because even though it’s affordable and at your local drug store, it still doesn’t do what it claims to do.
