Review: Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask

Hi everyone! Ugh it’s Monday again! Today I have a quick review on the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask, which I received a sample of in this month’s Birchbox.

Bliss Website 

This oxygen rejuvenating mask was engineered to mimic the effects of our spa’s famous triple oxygen treatment facial in minutes, this miracle worker instantly delivers a shot of oxygen, a powerhouse form of vitamin C, time-released antioxidants, and a moisture fix to spiff up your complexion when it’s looking and feeling lackluster.

  • Instantly brightens, detoxifies and refreshes skin for a youthful, glowing complexion with skin brightening technology

  • It’s like a breath of fresh air for your face

Scent: This has a citrus-y scent, it’s really quite pleasant!

Consistency: This is a light orange gel with some faint shimmer.

Application: The directions are to massage onto damp skin until a froth forms, and to wait 5 minutes before rinsing off. I did just that. It began to foam up as soon as I started to rub it onto my skin. The consistency of the foam sort of reminded me of shaving cream, haha! I let it sit on my skin for 5 minutes, and as it sat on my skin the foam started to pop (or deflate? Not sure how do describe it), which made my skin feel tingly. Eventually all the foam absorbed into my skin, making it feel tight.

Results: Like I just mentioned, the mask made my skin feel tighter. It also looked brighter after using it. It did not break my skin out.

Overall Thoughts: I enjoyed using this mask and I will continue to use up my sample. The full size is $54 though, ouch! So I don’t think I would pick up the full size after using up the sample, it’s just way out of my price range.

Have you tried this mask before? What were your thoughts?

Thank you for reading! 🙂

Sigma Brush Dupes? BS-MALL Premium Synthetic Kabuki Makeup Brush Set

Source: amazon.com

Hi my loves! I bought this 10 piece brush set off Amazon a few months ago, so I thought I would go ahead and share my thoughts on it! It was only around $10-11 when I bought it then, but now it’s only around $7! Do the brushes remind you of anything or look familiar…?

That’s right, they look just like the Sigma Kabuki brush set! I’ve seen a few dupes of the Sigma Kabuki brush set from different brands and even from generic brands on Amazon. I figured for around $10, it wouldn’t hurt to try the BS-MALL Synthetic Kabuki Brush Set. Especially since that Sigma set retails for $162!

The picture above gives a nice description of what each brush is for. I’ve been using some of the concealer brushes for blending out eyeshadows, and they have been working quite nicely for that. My favorite brush has to be the Flat Angled brush (#4)- its perfect for blending out foundation given its angled shape, and its also one of the best brushes I have for applying powder foundation since its quite dense. All of the face brushes are fairly dense, with the exception of the angled brush (#2), which makes sense given its suggested use for blush/bronzer. All of the small brushes are fairly fluffy and not dense, except for the small tapered brush (#6), which is pretty dense.

All of the brushes are very soft, and I only experienced some minor shedding when I first got them and washed them. I’ve washed them several times since then and have not noticed any shedding. The brush handles are a bit on the cheap side, and I’ve noticed that one of them is not glued together properly as its somewhat loose. I don’t mind too much since its easily fixable with glue.

Sigma F80 vs BS-MALL Flat Foundation Brush
Now, in terms of comparing these brushes to the Sigma ones, I only have one brush to compare to the ones in this set. I have the Sigma F80 flat top kabuki brush. Its counterpart in the BS-MALL brush set is definitely less dense compared to the Sigma one. The density of the SIgma brush helps give fuller coverage compared to the BS-MALL one, but they both do about the same in terms of blending.

Overall 

I think this brush set is a great deal! They are all very soft, don’t shed, and are so affordable! Sure, the brush handles are a bit cheap but otherwise they are good. Have you tried this brush set?
