Rodial Snake Oxygenating Bubble Mask

When it comes to cleansing, innovative face masks have been taken to a whole new level recently and we have become obsessed with peeling away our pores and covering our faces in liquid gold or snail juice. Now there is an even stranger beauty regime taking over the internet; bubble face masks.

The trend hails from the Asian beauty market (of course) and, essentially, the face mask bubbles up over your face in a similar way to a foaming cleanser. They claim to moisturise skin while cleansing thanks to all the oxygenating bubbles.

Recently my Facebook and Instagram has been awash with videos of people trying them out and, always being fascinated by the Asian beauty market, I just had to give one a go! Luckily I  was excited to see that UK Brand Rodial has also released their own versions of these masks - so I decided to go for these as I knew I was in trusty hands and quite frankly don’t know where to start with Asian brands!

The Rodial Snaky Oxygenating & Cleaning Charcoal Bubble Masks are in Rodial’s ‘Snake’ skincare range, which is all about freezing wrinkles.

What the brand says: The packaging says that these are deep cleansing charcoal sheet masks enriched in O2 bubbles to remove dirt, dead skin and excess oil, revealing a brighter looking complexion. It contains collagen, ceramide, Vitamins A & E and hyaluronic acid.

How to use it: First up you have to rub the pouch to mix all the ingredients together then just remove the mask from the protective sheet and pop it on your face for 10-15 minutes. Then wait for the bubbles to do their thing and remove!

Did it work: As this was a sheet mask rather than a foam or cream you apply directly to the face I was sceptical about how much it would actually bubble, however, as soon as you take the mask out of the packet you can see it is different to any other sheet mask and it already has foam on it.

As soon as I put it on my face I could start to feel it bubbling and the sensation felt quite cooling on my skin. I should say now that if you have seen the videos of foaming masks on Instagram and are expecting your face to turn into a cloud when you use it, this is not the case. In fact it is a very small foam made up of tiny bubbles. The only thing for me was that I felt like the foam was only coming from the outside layer of the mask and not actually on the side that was touching my skin, so I wasn't sure what effect this would have on my face. I decided to turn the mask around after about five minutes and swap so that the foaming side was on my face instead - I'm not sure if this would stop it bubbling or if it would cause it to become ineffective but I thought it was worth a try!

So the whole experience was pretty fun but did it actually make any difference to my skin? Well the proof was in the pudding on this one because the answer is YES! I have tried a number of different sheet masks before and none of them made my skin feel like this. After just five minutes my face was cleansed, refreshed and thoroughly moisturised. It instantly looked fresher and like it had been given a new lease of life. Plus, once I had taken the mask off I let the residue sink into my skin and I felt like the foam was working magic to clean my skin.

Overall I am really impressed with this mask and glad that it wasn't just a gimmick. The masks come in a box of 8 for £48 (working out around £6 per mask) or you can buy individual sachets for £7.50
