    "This face mask was awesome. It was fun, didn't take long, and it's fun as hell to Snapchat. What else could you ask for in a face mask? It also left my face feeling amazing. My skin was a little red after, which I actually didn't mind, because it hadn't felt that clean in weeks. The next morning when I woke up the redness was completely faded and I just felt... cleaner. I would definitely use this again!" —Lara Parker (read their whole review of the Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Mask)
