Korea, man. What will they think of next? From chia seed moisturiser to donkey milk sheet masks, we've tried all the weird and wonderful beauty hacks Asia has to offer, but this one really takes the cake. The Korean bubble mask is an instant Insta hit.
Here's how it works: you slather the clay mask straight onto the face. Wait a few minutes. Feel it get tingly. Then, as the clay begins to react with the oxygen in the air, the clay begins to effervesce. We're not going to lie, you do start to look a bit like The Hunger Games' Peeta camouflaged in a swamp, but that's part of the fun, right? What more could you really want from a face mask: a hella good clean and an Instagram opportunity? Quick, take my money!
The real question is: are these products more than just novelty bubbles? Well, yes - these masks aren't just a foamy face, guys. The bubbling clay gets deep into your pores to clean out the dirt and, according to Stylecaster, masks like the infamous Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask has clarifying properties, and will therefore tighten your skin and dry out any blemishes. But c'mon, there's nothing wrong with taking a couple of selfies in the process of giving your skin a good cleanse, is there? Take a look at these beautiful creatures:
So, you want in on the action? Luckily you don't have to wait for a package all the way from Korea to try out a bubble mask. Some of our favourite brands are now capitalising on our need for fizzy face masks. Check out our pick of the best below.
