WHAT ARE BUBBLE MASKS?
Beyond being your new favorite way to mask, bubble masks are masks which slowly erupt into foaming bubbles upon application. They can make your skin look like a cloud (or a bubbly bath), and of course they make for some pretty eye-catching selfies. Beyond that, bubble masks can help to revitalize your skin, removing dirt, oil, and impurities through an oxygenation process. Many brands have gotten in on the trend, and you can find bubble masks in a variety of forms, including clay, cream, and sheet masks. Ready to give bubble masks a try? Here are some of our favorites.
