Do sheet face masks even work? The beauty market is saturated with these things, in all shapes and colors, and they're great for a selfie and a few minutes of sitting relatively still. But do they actually help your pores? That's what the new Korean beauty invention 'Bubble' masks supposedly do, yet all the results I'm seeing are SQUISHY FACE OMG:
That incredibly viral image from Reddit user ZeApollo has set off a Bubble mask selfie competition across social media. Everyone wants to look like a cloud who wants to be your best friend, or a loofah scrub come to life, or the mold in your lunchbox. They're both terrifying and adorable, as you can see for yourself:
Things got really bubbly over here this week. I tried the new @naturerepublic_usa_official Black Rose wash-off Bubble Mask which claims to refresh skin and remove impurities from your pores, and it was not only a success but also a very ticklish and fun experience (I mean, bubbles... that's always fun, right?) 🦄While Pore-wise I didn't see much difference, its brightening and cooling effects were 👌🏼 👌🏼 👌🏼 -though my skin looked really red for around 10 mins right after wearing it but it quickly washed out to leave my skin bright and smooth. 🦄 A special shoutout to the peeps at @dubdubstories who helped me create this super cool video! #DubLoft #DubStudios
Okay soooo I tried one of those bubble masks last night and I'm obsessed! It worked so well!... however, I did learn the hard way not to put it near your nostrils or it will foam up inside your nose and try to smother you. Sure, you'll look like a rock troll from Frozen but it makes your skin feel great! #carbonatedmubbleclaymask #bubblemask #milkypiggy

If you want to try it out for yourself, Pop Sugar reports that Bubble masks are sometimes called "oxygen masks." Maybe they're called that because you actually float away on your own face, high up into the sky where the air is clean! Or maybe they just want to make them impossible to Google. Don't accidentally order any medical equipment, guys.
Would you try one?
