Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask by Bliss is an at-home facial mask that is supposed to replicate the super popular oxygen facial at the Bliss Spas. I received a sample of the mask, and was curious to see if it would give me perfectly glowing skin, which is what the world famous Bliss Spa triple oxygen facial promises.
The at-home mask is easy to use – you apply a generous layer of the product to damp skin, wait 5 minutes, and then wash it off. Once you rinse off the mask, you can apply a moisturizer. The best part about the product is that it smells nice (like oranges), and it creates a frothy texture on your skin that feels refreshing. This is the first mask I’ve used that creates a shaving cream-like texture, and I personally liked the feeling. The frothiness (if that is even a word) only lasted a few minutes before it disappeared, and by the time 5 minutes was up, my face was feeling a little tight.
The mask did make my face feel softer. My skin looked nice and smooth after using the mask, but it wasn’t glowing, and I’m not sure if it looked less “dull, tired and sallow” like it promised. I basically looked the same as before using the mask, but my skin was ever-so-slightly smoother and more even-toned. The product can be used up to 3 times a week.
Is it worth it?
The mask is fine for all skin types, and it doesn’t have pore clogging ingredients. It has some skin cleansing ingredients (like Sodium Laureth Sulfate), which seems sort of weird for a mask. At $52 for a bottle, it is pricey, although it contains 3.4 fl oz, which should last for several months or longer. I haven’t done extensive research on the benefit of added oxygen for your skin, or if it’s even possible to give your skin extra oxygen, but from what I have read, the whole oxygen thing is all marketing hype, and adding oxygen is actually not beneficial. The mask contains some good antioxidants, but if the product really does increase the oxygen in your skin, I wonder if that would negate the effects of the antioxidants since oxygen is a source of free radicals. Hmmm.
A lot of people do really like this mask, because there are some great reviews of it online, and other people think it’s fine, but not really worth it. The best thing about any skin care mask is that you feel like it’s a little pick-me-up for your skin, so even if it doesn’t do much, you feel better just knowing you did a little something extra. Due to the cheaper price and excellent hydrating abilities, I prefer the Paula’s Choice hydrating mask, but I would only recommend that one for normal to dry skin, and it doesn’t do any cool frothing or smell good, so it’s a bit boring.
