Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask

About two years ago I tried the Triple Oxygen Treatment from the famous Bliss Spa in Soho NYC. I remember having to pay around $200 (including taxes & tips) to receive the famous skin reviving treatment (took 75MINS). The results were instant! My skin felt refreshed and energized. My skin prior to the treatment was really dull and tired looking especially since I just got off a flight the day before and haven't had proper sleep. But after the Triple Oxygen Treatment, my skin looked brighter and was glowing: it was as if I was wearing a primer when my skin was in fact bare!

So after being satisfied with the Bliss Triple Oxygen Treatment but at the same time not willing to pay $200 every time I want an energizing facial (and also the fact that there is no Bliss spa where I live!), I kept a look out for other types of "oxygen facials" that are more affordable. I wasn't very successful at finding in-spa oxygen treatments at affordable prices so when I came across the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask 3.4 oz being sold at Sephora for $52USD/$57CAD, I bought it right away!

I bought the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask 3.4 oz about a year ago. On average, I used the mask 2-3 times each month and although due to the container of the product being non-transparent I can't be certain  exactly how much product is still left, there is definitely still enough of the product left for me to use it for  another month or more! Which means for less than $60, you can get 36+ treatments!

A frothy mask that releases oxygen into the skin, so your complexion is instantly brighter, fresher, and younger-looking.
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.
Inspired by Bliss Spa's most-famous facial, which gives skin the energy it needs for everyday metabolism, collagen synthesis, and detoxifying action.

Let me make one thing clear, I'm in no way implying that the Triple Oxygen Treatment I received at the Bliss Spa is similar in result or quality to the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask 3.4 oz. Because it is not! C'mon, do you really expect a $60 at home treatment (that takes 5 mins) to compare in quality and result of a professional treatment that takes more than 2 hours using products and machines that costs thousands of dollars??

Before I get into my personal experience with the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask, what's all the hype about oxygen facials/skin care? Is oxygen actually beneficial for skin? Unfortunately, I don't have the answers as I haven't come across any solid research findings for or against it. However, I did read several articles about oxygen facials. It seems the hype of oxygen facials sky-rocketed when Madonna expressed in a beauty magazine interview that she adores her oxygen facials so much that in fact she ended up having oxygen machines at all her homes! There are scientific researches that clearly explain how oxygen treatments can stimulate new collagen growth and in turn benefit the skin. But as with most scientific researches, everything is just in theory with no actual proven facts. I'm not going get into the actual science and theory behind oxygen treatments but if you like to find out more just Google search "oxygen facial treatments" and you should find tonnes of articles relating to the topic. Just be sure your reading articles or papers written and published by credible and reputable sources!

As for my own experience, I found the Triple Oxygen Treatment from the Bliss Spa very effective (as I already expressed in the beginning of this post). When I purchased Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask 3.4 oz, I was excited to try it out but at the same time I wasn't expecting much. At the most, I was hoping that this product will help my skin feel energized.

I started with a freshly cleansed face and sprayed my face with Evian water spry to make my skin damp (you can wet you face with regular tap water also), and I pumped out some product from the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask and quickly massaged a generous layer of the product all over my face and neck (avoiding the eye area). The product soon started to foam up. There was no tingly feeling or uncomfortableness at all. By the end of the 5 minutes, most the the frothy foam disappeared. I proceeded to rinse off with water. Without the foam, the product felt like slimy gel on my skin. It took few rinses to get off everything.

The result wasn't extraordinary or remarkable and it definitely didn't compare to the Triple Oxygen Treatment from Bliss spa. However, my skin felt super soft and appeared brightened and clear. Whereas the results of the Triple Oxygen Treatment from the Bliss spa lasted for weeks after, the effect of Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask was short lived; about half a day.

Do I think Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is worth a try? As the name suggests, this mask does offer instant results. After 5 minutes, your dull skin is revived. And for less than $60 you get 36+ uses. Therefore, as long people have realistic expectations, I don't think many people would be disappointed with this mask.

Do keep in mind that this is a quick fix for dull and tired skin. It will not produce any long term and/or anit-aging results. This would be an ideal product for someone who recently got an at-spa oxygen facial and want to keep up the results or for someone that that travels often therefore suffer from dull skin that jet lag or flying can often give. It a good product for quick reviving of dull skin so if your skin isn't really dull or tired to begin with you probably won't see much difference!
