Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask | Empties [Review]

Have you ever just used a product and didn't realize how much you enjoyed it's company 'til it was gone? That was how I felt with this mask. It's fun to use, offers a bit of benefit to the skin, but I just never thought to review it here on the blog. So now that I've used it up, I'd like to share with you why I kept using it and managed to finish off the whole product.

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask
100g | Made in Korea
This product was a gift, though I had purchased several before this one.
Description: This bubble clay mask is both a deep-cleansing makeup remover and pore cleanser in one! With its special formulation of charcoal powder, it deeply penetrates the pores to thoroughly get rid of deep-seated dirt while supplying proper nutrients to keep the skin healthy and supple. It not only cleanses, refines and tightens pores but it also helps control excessive sebum which usually causes the pores to be clogged. -Memebox

Ingredients: [Cosdna analysis] Water, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Kaolin, Acrylates Copolymer, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Methyl Perfluoroisobutyl Ether, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Lauramide DEA, TEA-Cocoyl Glutamate, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Bentonite, Collagen, Charcoal Powder, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Fragrance, Carbonated Water, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Allantoin, Butylene Glycol, Lavandula Angustifolia Extract, Monarda Didyma Leaf Extract, Mentha Piperita Leaf Extract, Freesia Refracta Extract, Chamomilla Recutita Flower Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Extract

Directions: Scoop a proper amount of the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask and spread evenly on dry, uncleansed face. Wait for 5 minutes until bubbles start to appear then gently massage it all over the face to melt down dirt. Rinse off with lukewarm water.

My Skin: oily, dehydrated, acne-prone, hormonal cystic acne, sensitive to alcohol, mild anti-aging concerns.

Performance: The Elizavecca Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask is like a gelatinous clay mask, that bubbles up when it comes into contact with your skin. I find it easy to spread out with my fingers, after taking a scoop out of the tub with the included spatula. It immediately starts to bubble up and tickles the skin ~ careful not to get it too close to your nostrils, or it might make you sneeze! The directions say to wait five minutes, but I usually wait 10~15, until the bubbles start to pop, then I massage it away with warm water. When washing it away, you'll notice how soapy it is - this is a reminder to be careful how much you apply, because it will take a long time to wash all the thick suds away. This mask has a lower pH of about 6, which makes it nice for those interested in using lower pH products to maintain and protect their skins' natural moisture barrier. 
Verdict: Overall, this is a really fun mask to use. I love how it bubbles up and I love how soft it makes my skin feel - it also doesn't make my pores appear to be much cleaner. However, I do find it drying - so this is a nice summer mask, for when my skin is very oily, but it's not so great in the winter when my skin is more on the dry side. I will continue to repurchase it for summer-time use though!

  1. I just wanted to say that as a n00b, I've found your blog informative and you've convinced me to try the ACwell Bubble Free cleanser. But OMG can you please tell me what that little bear pot is in your header image? It's the third row down. And is that a cat paw sponge in the bottom row? They are so cute!!!

    1. The bear pot is a hand cream from The Face Shop, and the cat paw is actually a pack of "point masks" like a sheet mask but a smaller circle to place on a smaller area of your face or body - those particular ones are from Pure Smile =)

    2. I meant to come back sooner and thank you for your reply! I am such a sucker for anything kawaii, and delighted to see that some brands (especially Tony Moly!) have the cutest packaging! Now I just have to resist the urge to buy mediocre or overpriced products just for the packaging! :P
