Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask Review

 

As seen on my previous post, I finally have an update for all you pretty readers. Today I’ll be doing a review on the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask! I know this mask have been in the market for a while now and I’m only doing the review now but I do have a reason! LOL! My skin wasn’t in the greatest condition when this mask was released. Now that my skin is in a better condition, I’ll be trying it out!

Do take note that this product is NON HALAL!

 

Elizavecca Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask. With the hype going on around the beauty industry, let’s see if its really that great of a product.

 

Packaging

– It comes in a small grey container.

– 100 ml worth of product.

– I quite like the simple packaging and the piggy with the mask on. LOL!

– The expiry date and manufactured date can be found on the bottom of the container.

 

 

Inside

– It has a small spatula and a tight plastic lid over the mask.

 

Texture before applying.

– It’s a greyish slimy cream type mask.

– It’s like jello.

– It’s so fun to look at! XD

 

Beneficial ingredient:

As the product page stated, this mask contains Green Tea extract, Pomegranate extract, Charcoal Powder, Collagen, Glycerin.

 

Here are the full ingredients:

Purified Water, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, White Clay, Acrylate Copolymer, Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate, Methyl Perfluorobutyl Ether, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Lauramide DEA, TEA-Cocoyl Glutamate, Green Tea Extracts, Glycerine, Dipropylene Glycol, Bentonite, Collagen, Charcoal Powder, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Flavouring Agents, Carbonated Water, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Allantoin, Butylene Glycol, Lavender Extracts, Monarda Didyma Leaf Extracts, Peppermint Leaf Extracts, Freesia Leaf Extracts, Chamomile Flower Extracts, Rosemary Leaf Extracts

 

Charcoal Powder

It pulls out dirt and oil from pores.

 

Green Tea Extract

Soothes sensitive skin

 

Glycerin

Anti Ageing treatments

Used in acne treatments

Helps to retain skin moisture

 

What the product claims to do:

– The carbonated bubble unclogs pores and removes dead skin.

– The carbonated bubble helps to stimulate the skin to bring out a healthy glow.

– Removes black head.

 

How to use:

Step 1.

– Pick up the mask with the spatula provided.

 

Step 2.

– Apply it all over the face. Work fast. Trust me, if you work slowly the foam will start forming before you even finish covering your face.

– Spread it evenly.

– Wait and see the magic happen.

 

Within 20 seconds, small fine bubbles will start forming. It’s so interesting watching the bubbles form.

 

1 minute after application. As you can see the bubbles started forming, you can hear the bubbling fizzy happening around your skin.

You can feel the tingling sensation around your whole face as the bubble keeps growing.

 

Step 3.

After 5 – 10 minutes, run fingers under warm water and rub onto skin. Massage for a minute and wash your face as you would with a cleanser.

 

 

Texture after applying

It’s not what I expected. I initially thought that the bubbles would be fine and soft but it’s actually sticky. It turns into a soapy feel once massaged with warm water.

 

Scent

I’m not quite sure what the smell is but it smells like a sweet fruity smell. Not too bad.

 

Personal opinion

Once applied, you can feel a tingly sensation just like drinking sprite or coke. I have a very sensitive skin so I was hesitating whether to try on this product or not. However, thank god my skin did not react badly to the mask. I did not get any redness or itch on my face. It has the same feeling as dipping your face into carbonated water.

However! It is a hassle washing it off. It is sooo hard to wash the mask off. It’s slippery and foamy, I had to use cotton wipes to remove the clay off my skin. So I think using it before shower will be a better idea.

 

It is worth the hype?

To be honest, it’s worth playing around with this mask because it’s so much fun watching the mask grow 5x its original size but in terms of helping the skin, I don’t think so.

 

Does it do what it claims?

To be honest, I don’t think the mask does what it claims to do. Removes blackheads? Neh, I don’t think so. Gives a healthy glow? Hmmm, not really. Removes dead skin and dirt? Maybe? Not that sure, maybe I have to use it more often to see its effect.

 

PROS

– Smells great

– Decent amount of product for its price

– Fun to play with.

 

CONS

– Might not be suitable for dry skin or very sensitive skin.

– Not much effect on the skin.

– Overrated product to be honest.

 

Price

I bought it for RM40 during sales in Hermo.

 

Where to purchase?

Hermo – HERE

Amazon – HERE

YESSTYLE – HERE

 

Ratings

Price – 4/5

Pretty worth it during sales

 

Size – 4/5

I guess it’s a decent amount at 100ml

 

Hygiene – 2/5

I don’t really like things in a jar. I prefer it to be in a tube but I guess for this product it works better being in a tub.

 

Packaging – 3.5/5

I like the simple package but not the colour.

 

Claims – 2/5

Not really feeling it for this clay mask.

 

Will I repurchase this product?

I don’t think I will be repurchasing this product. It’s worth the hype though, watching the bubble form and the tingling sensation is pretty cool. However, coming down to the benefits, I don’t think it I like it that much but I do prefer the Innisfree Super Volcanic Clay Mask.

 

Originality Check

On the box, you will get a seal with a QR Code and numbers to check for originality. Gently scrape the silver part to reveal 16 numbers to check.

 

Go to this link -> http://elizavecca.com/shop/main/html.php?&htmid=service/original_certification_eng.htm and input the numbers.

*Beware of imitation Elizavecca products.

 

That’s it for my first impression/review for my first product from Elizavecca. The above review is not sponsored by anybody and it is all my personal opinion on the Elizavecca Carbonated Clay mask.

[Elizavecca] Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Serum Review

Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Serum Review

 

 

IMG-1097

I bought this Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Serum not so long ago. I was lured by the claim that the serum contains 97% of Hyaluronic Acid which is a really good moisturizer. And it wasn’t that expensive either, so I thought to myself- now or never.

I ordered it from RoseRoseShop and it came in less than 2 weeks (I was really amazed at how fast it came) straight from South Korea. I almost finished the bottle now and I feel it’s a perfect time to share my review on it.

Claims 

So what is this serum supposed to do? According to RoseRoseShop it:

  • ‘captures and continually diffuses water within the skin to restore its moisture balance and leave skin feeling soft and supple’
  • provides ‘enlarged pores care’ (whatever ‘enlarged pores care’ means, really)
  • has ‘whitening and wrinkles functionality’ (I really wonder what this is supposed to mean again but there we go)
  • is a ‘multi whitening and wrinkles sauce (sauce? like- sauce you can eat? Baffled. I don’t know what a sauce has to do with a serum, lol, but anyway) serum and a powerful moisturizer’

The product description isn’t too helpful in making clear what the serum is supposed to do to your skin but I think what can be deduced from it is it’s supposed to be a good moisturizer (mainly due to the high percentage of Hyaluronic Acid in it) and have whitening effects. But let’s proceed to the review.

 

Packaging

The serum comes in this little glass bottle:

It comes with a small pipette. It’s easy to get the serum out of the bottle and I actually like that the bottle is made of glass- it’s much better to store cosmetics (especially the ones with actives that are unstable) in glass containers as it ensures their effectiveness lasts longer. However, because it’s glass it’s also fragile and I’m always afraid that I’ll drop it and the bottle will crash into small pieces. And the serum will be lost- forever. T^T

 

Ingredients and Texture

IMG-1091IMG-0042IMG-0044

You can see the ingredients list in the photo but I also found it on CosDna. What strikes me the most is that it REALLY contains 97% of Hyaluronic Acid. It’s pretty impressive. There are also other skin-friendly bits like, for example, Niacinamide, Arginine, Adenosine or Allantoin. So for this price, it’s a really decent serum in terms of the ingredients.

In terms of the texture, the serum is transparent and is very VERY watery. It makes it incredibly easy to spread and it also absorbs quickly so you don’t have to wait too long to continue with the next steps in your skincare routine. That’s a big plus for me as I always want to finish my evening skincare routine ASAP and just go to bed. The serum also has no smell.

 

My thoughts 

After using it for some time I noticed that my skin is plumper after applying it on my face. It’s also smoothe. And because it absorbs fast it doesn’t leave this tacky feeling some sheet masks do. Instead, it leaves my skin moisturized only internally so I can still put on my regular moisturizer without feeling I’m overwhelming my skin with too much stuff.

It also made my skin a bit tighter but I didn’t notice any change in the size of my pores as the claim ”enlarged pores care” would suggest. It’s made my face more even though and it seems it prevents breakouts. I rarely get spots but after starting using it I haven’t got any at all so far.

When it comes to the whitening effect, my face is already pretty white so I don’t think there’s much room for any brightening. The only noticeable effect is that my skin doesn’t look that dull anymore, so maybe that’s thanks to some of the whitening ingredients in the serum.

So let’s ask this important question- is it worth purchasing? It’s definitely a decent serum but it’s not my holy grail. I do like the fact that it contains 97% of Hyaluronic Acid and that it does moisturize my skin without making it feel sticky. And it isn’t that expensive so if you’re looking for a moisturizing serum it’s surely a good choice. I’ll certainly keep using it until I’ve used it up completely and maybe will repurchase as I think it’s a good idea to use it from time to time to plump my face without the tacky feeling that would make me compromise other steps in my skincare routine.
