Mamonde Petal Purifying Bubble Mask Rose was purchased by Cosmeperks.
“The strength of beauty can be discovered in flowers. Inspired by flowers.”
This is another of the new flower masks collection recently released by Mamonde. Previously here on Cosmeperks I have reviewed the Calendula sleeping mask and the Eoseong Cho clay mask. And although both smell divine and both are good, my opinion was different for each of them.
I won’t spoil you and tell you my thoughts right away, so instead I’ll tell you what expectations I had! I thought this would be a bubbling clay mask, like those very popular ones we see on Instagram, and that it would bubble as much as the Nature Republic O2 bubble foam masks (or almost as much). I also expected that, as a clay mask, it would be a little harsh on the skin (since the Eoseong Cho mask was gentle on the clay part of it).
-A wash off mask with the chiffon texture of rose petals that create micro bubbles to clean and purify the skin.
-Roses have been used for a long time for the beauty of women, and are one of the most beloved flowers to date with their fantastic fragrance and beauty effects.
-Formulated with real rose petals, this formula provides excellent calm and moisturizing effect, as well as clear and vital skin tired from harmful environments. (Okay let me spoil it for you right now, there is no moisturizing clay mask – but this is a non drying mask and I think that’s what they meant)
Immediately after application, soft and fluffy chiffon fine bubbles are formed by droplets, cleansing the skin and giving the skin a clear look.
Water, Kaolin, Glycerin, Methyl Perfluoroisobutyl Ether, Bentonite, Methyl Perfluorobutyl Ether, Propanediol, Myristic Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Palmitic Acid, Alcohol, Stearic Acid, 1,2-Hexanediol, Rosa Gallica Flower Powder, Citric Acid, Ethylhexylglycerin, Salvia Hispanica Seed Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Disodium EDTA, Allantoin, Butylene Glycol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Lauric Acid, Methyl Gluceth-20, Methylpropanediol, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Extract, Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Fragrance
How to use:
-After cleansing, prepare skin texture with a toner and apply an appropriate amount of the mask to the skin without any moisture on hands or face.
-From the moment it is applied, the fine chiffon texture feels soft and bubbles start coming up.
-After 1 minute, gently massage the bubbles (note, some of the thinner layers can be dry by now) with lukewarm water. Before the creamy texture dims, wash it within 1 minute to see the better results.
My Skin Type: Oily T, dry U, sensitive, blemishes easily, and allergic.
Mamonde Petal Purifying Bubble Mask Rose Review:
I know, I know my photos of this collection are so ugly. But the packages of this collection are actually really grey, and the camera captures that, and I don’t want to edit it in Photoshop like the brands do. Seriously, if you want the packages to be properly pink, mint, yellow, whatever then make a properly colored package, not a grey one!
This was on the day I opened the mask for the first time. It looks like a pretty average clay mask, it looks like it has a slight sandy texture, and I see some specks that are the real rose petals. I can also tell without effort that the scent is delicious!
It’s like roses, and it’s perfect for my taste. It’s strong of flowers, but not like a perfume, I don’t think the smell will bother anyone who is not really sensitive to smells. Oh, it smells the same as the Femmue flower infused wash off mask.
I apologize for the dark background. This was on my 3rd usage of the mask. The mask spreads so thinly that I end up using less than I expected each time! Anyway, here you can see that the mask always “bubbles back up” a little after using, even if you close it right away. Just make sure to press the mask down after you use it, so keep as much oxygen away from it as possible.
Here I took a small swab of mask and spread it until the petals would show. The purpose of this photo is literally just to show you the petals, that they are there, and they are small, and they exist.
Here was my first swatch for the review.
1 – Apply the mask, massaging. It should have this creamy texture right after it comes in contact with your skin. You can massage it however long you see fit, but I don’t like massaging too much because since it’s a clay mask it starts drying on the skin.
2 – Right after you stop massaging it forms very small bubbles (micro bubbles as they call it). This part takes less than one minute.
3 – This is how it looks if it dries. On my face I let it bubble everywhere, and that means that on the places with the first, or thinner layers the bubbles will dry before the next step. It’s fine!
4 – I added water and massaged it, and got a foamy and light cream. As you can see it works even after drying! This process of watering and massaging shouldn’t take more than one minute (according to their instructions) to give the mask optimal effect. After this, you rinse off, and you’re done!
Now, it looks a little different on the face, so I also made a collage of the process on the face.
1 – After applying the mask by massaging it, these are the foams that form. As you can see, it reacts way more on my face than on my hand. There could be several reasons for that: pH differences, different bacteria, it can be reacting to dead skin, to oil, who knows. But as you can see it is different!
2 – And here is how they look when they dry a little. You can see it’s not as dramatic as in the previous collage, actually what happens mainly is that the bubbles disappear.
3 – I added water and massaged it. At this point it looks, to me, as a gentle and thick foam cleanser.
4 – I decided to show the final result. If you read my previous clay masks reviews, when there is a reaction it is usually on my nose area and you can see here that there is no irritation at all.
The scent is good and the mask is really gentle on the skin. It’s good for people who prefer to exfoliate gently and often rather than rarely and strongly. For exfoliation this is almost at the same level (a little tiny bit weaker) as the Eoseong Cho from the same collection, and the Innisfree Cica clay masks.
But even though it is weaker as an exfoliating agent, it does purify the skin. You can see how clean my pores look, and how there’s almost no texture between my big fat pores. After using this mask with different combinations, I realized that I should use a gentle clay mask (like the above mentioned ones) and two days later this one. Then wait two days and use the gentle clay masks. Etc. Because in my case it optimizes the effect.
Skin care is always mix and match for everyone, but I can say for sure that if you don’t like gentle exfoliating or clearing masks this is not for you. I can also tell my advice which is dry skins should use gentle products like this (because exfoliating is still important) and so should thin or damaged skins.
So, if you’re in the gentle masks group, this one will most likely please you! But if you like the strong effect of the original Innisfree volcanic mask, or even the Super Volcanic mask then I have to say you should probably skip this one.
I personally love it as I have been liking more gentle masks lately, and I love that I’m done in two minutes, without pausing and without even having to leave the bathroom! To me and my busy schedule that is one HUGE advantage over all other wash off masks. I will definitely purchase this one again when I finish my clay mask collection (or maybe when I finish this one because it’s really good).
