Hello Clear, Fresh Skin: Everything You Need To Know About Bubble Sheet Masks!


A bubble sheet mask looks like any other sheet mask you get in the market. The only obvious difference is, of course, bubbles! I remember putting on a bubble sheet mask for the first time. Initially, it felt like a normal sheet mask - hydrating and moist. After 3 mins, I felt a slight tingly feeling. I looked into the mirror and was shocked to see that a zillion bubbles popped up on the sheet mask. I’ve never seen anything like it! And after a couple more minutes, my face looked unrecognisable. The bubbles had gotten twice as big and the sheet mask had gotten a tad bit heavier.

After removing the sheet mask, I scooped all the bubbles in my hand and massaged my face in circular motions with it. I kid you not, but post cleansing, my skin had this gorgeous radiant glow to it. My pores felt squeaky clean and my face looked super fresh. Ever since that experience, I’ve been fascinated with bubble sheet masks. Even though they cost more than regular sheet masks, I think every girl should experience a bubble sheet mask at least once in her lifetime. Before you pick one up, here’s everything you need to know about bubble sheet masks first.

What Are Bubble Sheet Masks?

In simple words, bubble sheet masks are quite similar to getting an oxygen facial done. However, the only two differences are that you need an esthetician and more time on your hands. Whereas the bubble sheet mask is convenient and requires less time to tend to your skin. If you did not already know, every bubble sheet mask packet is loaded with perfluorocarbons and foaming ingredients. Under pressure, oxygen is later pumped in and is instantly sealed. That pressured oxygen, when introduced to air, starts forming bubbles.

The Benefits of Using Bubble Sheet Masks

So, if you're planning on investing in one, here is a list of its benefits that you should consider. 

1. It Unclogs Your Pores

All the dust, grime, oil and makeup residue on your face is removed when you use a bubble sheet mask. If there’s excess product remaining, don’t chuck it out. Apply it to your face and massage the product into your skin for a good 2-3 minutes. Then with lukewarm water, wash your face well. Your pores will become squeaky clean.

2. No More Acne

Stress, hormonal imbalance, pollution and genetics are to be blamed when it comes to acne production. Do you know what else is to be blamed? Your poor skin care routine. If you sleep with makeup residue, dust and dirt on your face, you’re bound to get acne. Getting accustomed to a new skincare routine that involves deep cleansing as one of its steps is essential for clean, happy skin. A bubble sheet mask can make that dream of yours come true.

3. Bye To Blackheads

Remember that bubble sheet masks help to exfoliate and cleanse your skin. While it removes dead skin cells, it also prevents blackheads from forming. Using a bubble sheet mask twice a week will guarantee glass-like skin.   

4. What Is Dull Skin?

Does your skin look dull and lifeless? You’re not alone. Most women feel that way about their skin. A bubble sheet mask is one solution to the many out there. They cleanse your pores, and hydrate and moisturise your skin at the same time. Do you know what’s even cooler? It blesses your skin with that heavenly glow post use.

1. How do you use a bubble sheet mask?

You simply put them on as you would do for a regular sheet mask. Also, begin on a clean surface aka your skin. Once you’re done with cleansing, pat your skin dry and after 5 minutes, gently put on the sheet mask. Keep it on for a good 10 to 15 minutes. Once you spot bubbles, remove the mask and massage the product well into your skin. Use warm water to wash the product off from your face. Feel free to apply serum and moisturise your face after sheet masking.

2. How long do you keep it on for?

You’ll usually find the time duration mentioned on the sheet mask itself. If it’s not, then you should ideally be keeping it on for about 8-15 minutes.

3. What are bubble face masks supposed to do?

It’s meant to cleanse and exfoliate your skin. It also helps to remove sebum, oil and dirt from your face. Plus, post usage, it helps to hydrate, nourish and soften your skin.  

4. What skin type do bubble masks suit?

You’ll be glad to know that these deep cleansing masks are suitable for all types of skin. However, I would not suggest you reuse the masks. Once you open the packet, you need to use it on that day itself. Preserving the extra serum could attract dirt and bacteria. Just like any other sheet mask, bubble masks are a one-use kind of product and it works well for every skin type.

5. Are bubble face masks worth the money?

As I mentioned before, bubble sheet masks tend to be more expensive compared to regular sheet masks. I would suggest, buy it for the experience. If it works for your skin, there’s nothing like it.
