Maybe it's the fact that every time I've had a facial at Bliss, their products didn't make me break out and left my face glowing. Maybe it's because I am pretty much in love with any Bliss product, no matter what the cost! Or perhaps it's just because you only need to use this mask once a week for 15 minutes and it claims to unclog pores, remove dead cells and dark spots and clear otherwise unsightly complexions.
Whatever the case may be, I took it upon myself to test this out over the last month. And today's edition of Must-Have Mondays? It's definitely the Bliss Steep Clean Mask.
I must say that the bottle itself is quite fun to use. A dual pump dispenses two different colors of gel -- turquoise and white -- that, once mixed and emulsified in your hands, turn a vibrant shade of green. As I began spreading the paste-like substance on my face, it felt cooling to the touch and turned white. At no point did it begin to harden or crack over my skin, so I could still move my face and not feel like I had a Grecian mask over it that prevented me from showing true expression! Even after my first usage, I already began to see a difference. The terribly clogged pores and blackheads on my nose began to disappear, and my skin -- which had until this point had some splotchiness and redness -- began to even out.
After subsequent uses, the pores continued to shrink, the blackheads continued to evaporate, and the dryness and itchiness that usually accompanies the cold winter months began to disappear! It's now been one month and I can honestly say this is my new I-can't-live-without-this-or-I-feel-like-I-might-die-tomorrow product.
