If you want to find the latest skincare trends, look no farther than Instagram. This season, we've noticed a few funny pictures bubbling up, and the beauty world has taken note. Mags like Allure have filled us in on the bubble-mask trend, which has its fizzy origins in Korea. (AKA: skincare-innovation Mecca.) Once applied, the masks foam up and oxygenate skin, which lets ingredients like salicylic acid penetrate deep. The treatment exfoliates, cleanses pores, and lead to an overall tighter, brighter appearance—plus, they feel really cool. Think Pop Rocks for your face.
If you're up for adding some foam to your next at-home facial, and joining the ranks of bubbly selfie-takers, here are a few products to check out this summer.
Bliss's tried-and-true Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Foaming Mask ($56) uses ingredients like grape-seed extract and vitamins C&E to give tired skin a boost of radiance. (It's Monday. We'll take it.) Bliss actually has a whole line of Triple Oxygen products, which include eye gel and cleansing foam. BTW: Bliss Spas also have a Triple Oxygen Facial on the menu.
When you apply its Detox Face Mask ($42), Malin + Goetz warns: "You will look like a marshmallow." Excellent. The product also works as a makeup remover.
e.l.f. makes an easy-on-the-wallet Hydrating Bubble Mask ($14) that removes dirt and cleanses pores. The pros say to use this one to three times a week.
So to review, bubbles and rainbows are big this summer. Is some kind of unicorn-inspired trend up next?
