Entia Meringue Cloud Mask Review
Have you ever had a sucky Monday? Some days, the best part of the whole ordeal (not counting my wonderful family, of course) is picking out the evening mask. Today, I could use all the extra positivity possible so I chose this brightly packaged Entia Meringue Cloud Mask.
I’ve used bubble masks before (like this Mamonde one), but never in a sheet mask format. This is an “all-in-one” mask that cleanses, exfoliates, removes blackheads, and tightens pores. I wish it would fold my laundry too.
AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) - a chemical compound that naturally occurs in fruit, milk, and sugar cane. AHAs are used as exfoliants.
Egg whites - tighten pores while smoothing the skin.
Vitamin C - improves skin tone and has anti-aging properties.
How to use:
Cleanse (I just assume this - the instructions don’t mention that specifically, but most masks I’ve used are applied to clean skin)
Apply the mask for 10-15 minutes
Remove, discard, wash off the remaining bubbles with water
Continue with your routine, starting with the toner
Right after application - I can already see some bubbles!
You might feel slight tingling or stinging sensation while using the mask. That’s completely normal for AHAs. Of course, use your best judgement. I didn’t feel any sort of tingling (other than tickling from the bubbles) until about 15 minutes after removing the mask. It’s not unpleasant and very mild.
Ten minutes later - does this mask make me look fat? :D It's impossible to smile in this without getting a mouth full of bubbles.
This mask is best for oily skin types with clogged pores and excess oil production. My skin is combination (oily t-zone, dry-to-normal cheeks) and I liked the effects. My face felt incredibly clean and refreshed; I had some slight tingling in the cheeks afterwards. The pores are pretty much nonexistent (probably thanks to the egg whites). I also had one post-acne mark from the previous week that faded considerably after this mask. Overall, it’s a good product. The “skintertainment” factor of the bubble massage is a definite plus. It’s something I would use maybe one to two times a month as the exfoliation feels powerful and I wouldn’t want to overdo it. But the WOW effect of smooth, poreless skin is definitely amazing.
After removal - so many bubbles. And I'm also wearing whitening strips, because multitasking is what moms do best, but it makes the smile attempt awkward.
Pro tip - make sure to really moisturize afterwards, maybe use a night mask for extra hydration. And since exfoliating acids can increase the skin’s photosensitivity (sensitivity to light), definitely wear sunblock the next day. Of course, I’d say daily sunscreen is a must in general.
