Yummy411: Bliss Triple Oxygen™ Instant Energizing Mask

I went to Sephora once, saw my good esthetician friend and asked her for a recommendation on what to spend my money on. Anything new and exciting? (Going to Sephora can be like going to the casino; no real aim, just looking to spend money and have fun.) What did she recommend? Bliss' Triple Oxygen Mask for quick skin repair before makeup application. Bliss Spa's famous Triple Oxygen mask treatment for you in a bottle! I was giddy! I love a fresh canvas for makeup! I quickly ran to it and promised to return when I was ready to drop $52 dollars on it. My iQ Derma was doing me just fine for the moment. I finally got my hands on it to try.. yippee!!

From Bliss:
What is it? A flash-action mask that delivers a shot of oxygen and detoxifiers, a dose of a powerhouse form of Vitamin C, a smattering of anti-free radicals and a moisture fix to instantly spiff up your skin when you find it looking a little 'low' life.

Why? Studies show that as we age, the natural oxygen levels circulating in our facial skin decline, and along with them, goes the energy needed to keep our cells functioning like the cells on a 'fresh' face. More oxygen (and vitamin C, and hydration) means more energy for all of the biochemical processes required by your body to keep your skin functioning like it's 'young'.

How to use it Massage a generous layer of Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask onto damp skin. Wait five minutes, until a full froth forms, then rinse well and follow with toner and/or moisturizer. NOTE: Our Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is formulated for fast (5 minutes) action and oxygen release, so there's no need to leave it on longer. Use whenever your skin needs a boost, a maximum of 3x weekly.

Here's me experiencing my ultra, lavish at home facial treatment:

I had to wear the required lipstick for face cleansing like they do in the commercials!

La ti da! Oooh some sizzle and fizzle action!

Doo wee, shooo weeee! Is it working yet?

Okay, my five minutes was up. Rinse. I felt my skin to see what it had done on its own. Nice, smooth. Felt like I already had primer on. I then followed with my toner and moisturizer. What did I think overall. It was nice, though I expected more for my use. Remember it works so well, it's not recommended for use more than three times a week. I wanted dramatically different skin. I wanted a radiant glow that I would be afraid to cover up with makeup. My triple oxygen mask at home? Drink water, don't smoke, use primer. Less than $52. My sister who also gave herself a mask agreed. I shall use up the bottle and give an update if necessary.

Tammy said...

Uhm I think you applied too
I bought this last week and after my first try I wasn't immediately impressed, the day after I was shocked at how glowy (not greasy) I looked.

Product Junkie Diva said...

Yummy you saved me 52 bucks I was totally going to get this but since this mask is not life changing I will continue with my water
Thanks a bunch and have the best weekend.

@ erica: this was my first foamy mask! anything else you suggest?

@ rocketqueen: thanks! awww you really love me.. thanks!!! so that you don't have to do so much translating do you know of a translator? many don't have your language oddly enough.

@ tammy: i was reading muse's who said she didn't use enough. the bottle also says to use a 'generous' amount. what's your skin type? i think that effects how ppl feel about it. i will continue to use it, but i hate adding steps to my routine =/

@ pjd: hey that's my take, but check out some other reviews to get a balanced idea on it!

@ makeupbyrenren: i hope so!

@ connie: i was trying to be silly! LOL!

@ vanessa: thanks!

@ beauty365: yeh i'll give it a few more tries or play in the tub with my bubble bath like i did as a kid!
