Product Review: Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask

One of the Bliss Spa favorite masks is now packaged for at-home treatment. Since I’ve never been to a Bliss Spa, I decided it would be fun to try their “Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask”.

The energizing mask is uniquely packaged in a super-sanitary pump bottle. LOVE that! It always makes me cringe a little inside when I go digging into my tubs of masks. I mean, I always wash my hands first… but still. The hand bacteria, oils, ok. Anyhow. I love the pump idea.

This mask boasts vitamin C, fluidO2 (liquid oxygen? Is that chemically possible???), NaPCA (Sodium PCA… no sure what the PCA is), EUK-134 free-radical resisters (one of Bliss’ trademark ingredients). Vitamin C is great for brightening your skin, and the EUK-134 is probably something that will help shield your skin from pollution and damaging particles which is good. But I’m truly hesitant to believe that your skin can absorb liquified oxygen.

In any case, the mask was very pleasant and relaxing. Bliss tells you to massage it onto your damp skin, wait 5 minutes until frothy and then rinse. So it’s quick too, and it did rinse easily.  You can use it up to 3 times a week.

While I enjoyed the mask on my skin, I didn’t really notice any substantial benefits and I have to pass it to a friend since it contains a huge amount of glycerin (which causes me to break out, grrr). So sensitive types, please beware.

All in all, it’s a nice mask: a bit pricey, I adore the packaging, but I’m not sold on the hype. The mask runs $52 for a 3.4 ounce pump bottle and it’s available at Bliss (stores and online) or at Drugstore.comicon.

If you’d like to see more reviews of this Bliss mask, there’s a multitude of ’em at Total Beauty.

Hahaha serirously your skin isn’t going to absorb the O2. And if your skin COULD, would you want it to? Free oxygen would hurt your cells, that’s why we have blood cells to carry O2 around and distribute them properly, we don’t want to randomly oxidize things. You are right to call them on thier lame marketing. =D
