Good news: sheet masks have had a whole new twist. And we’re not quite sure we were expecting this one. From gold face masks to ‘multi-masking’, we thought we’d heard it all when it came to the newest tricks and trends for keeping our skin looking radiant and youthful… until the bubble mask landed on our desks.

You may have already seen them on Instagram, and although they make for a hilarious Insta snap, do you know about their benefits?

The truth is that they work the same way that your normal foaming cleanser would – but the bubbles that the mask produces will actually help to moisturize your face, too. They first became popular in Korea (where A LOT of new beauty innovations come from – more on that here), where experts found that the bubble-effect of the mask infuses the skin with oxygen and helps the mask’s ingredients to penetrate the skin more effectively.

We’re in love with this one – which contains activated charcoal that helps to detoxify and eliminate impurities, and fruit acids that help to exfoliate dead skin cells away – leaving your skin looking fresh and luminous.
