Skincare Review: Bliss Pumpkin Powerhouse Mask, Drench and Quench, and Green Tea Wonder Mask

Some Bliss tubs I’ve been testing the past few months.

The Pumpkin Powerhouse Mask promises to exfoliate and resurface the skin using pumpkin puree, lemon and rice powders, and sodium hyaluronate, and shea butter. This is a creamy mask with tiny bits that feels soft and not at all scratchy. It almost feels likes tiny fibers. It just that lightly exfoliates the skin. The masks sting a bit but it does soften the skin. After every application, this helped with my skin’s texture a bit.

To moisturize, the Drench & Quench promises to hydrate and balance the skin with purified microalgae, hydrozome, vitamin c, milk thistle oil, passion fruit seed oil, and german chamomile. As expected, this gel moisturizer feels like a burst of water when you apply it to the skin. It also has a fresh floral scent that’s similar to body moisturizers my aunt used to use when I was a kid. It settles into this slightly creamy, silky texture as it dries. It feels hydrating, which didn’t really surprise me. It’s just not as hydrating as I would like.

I have never encountered a cuter overnight mask than the Green Tea Wonder Mask. It glistens on my hands on my face when applied. Aside from how it looks, this overnight mask also aims to balance and smooth the skin while absorbing excess oil using azelaic acid, fermented green tea oil, green tea extract, aloe leaf juice, and rosa canica extract. This feels so good on the skin. It feels soothing and rejuvenating so I use this after exfoliating or when my skin is feeling sensitive. Most of my overnight masks focus on hydration so this is a welcome addition in my stash.

Skincare Review: Rosen Super Smoothie Cleanser and Bright Citrus Serum

Focusing on acne, Rosen Skincare offers cleaner and more thoughtful skincare products. They sent a few products that they recommended for my oily and acne-prone skin.

The Super Smoothie Cleanser promises to help balance oil levels, fade dark spots, and help you glow using strawberry powder, lemon powder, and raspberry powder. It has a refreshing feel and a natural plant-y smells when you apply it. I didn’t see its dark spot fading benefits but it does cleanse my skin and balance its oiliness.

Containing 20% vitamin c, grapefruit oil, glycerin, and mulberry extract, the Bright Citrus Serum aims to help with scarring, PIH, and discoloration. After using this for a couple of months, I can attest as to how this brightened my skin and lightened some dark spots that I had under my chin. I also enjoy its non-sticky consistency that sinks into the skin quickly.
