Steep Clean, Professional-Strength Facial Mask, for All Skin Types
Steep Clean Professional-Strength Facial Mask, for All Skin Types is supposed to be the next best thing to having a facial, and claims to “transform even a permanently-clogged T-zone into a scene of extreme clean,” all while exfoliating and lightening dark spots. It’s all false because there is nothing in this product that will positively impact blackheads nor fade discolorations. It is mostly glycerin, water, cleansing agent, film-forming agent, and thickener, along with shea butter and castor oil (emollient ingredients that should be kept away from blemish-prone areas). The only miracle about this mask is that anyone would benefit from it as described, or spend their money on such a waste-of-time product. If we were seeing an aesthetician who used this product as a means of combating blackheads and discolorations, we’d cancel our next appointment.
The next best thing to 'being there', this 15-minute facial in a tube will transform even a permanently-clogged t-zone into a scene of extreme clean, while helping to remove dead cells and dark spots. Really a miracle mask.
The story of Bliss starts in 1996, when personal trainer Marcia Kilgore opened a New York spa designed around no-fuss skin treatments and de-stressing regimens for busy lifestyles. Over time, clients asked for Bliss-branded skin care products, and so Bliss skin care was born.
Bliss enjoyed success for years, being sold in spas as well as online and at some brick-and-mortar retailers. Kilgore eventually sold Bliss, and after changing hands a couple more times, the brand began to lose some of its identity. Its most recent owners decided it was time for a back to our roots makeover, with lower prices across the board and a cleaner version of Bliss's iconic white with splashes of color packaging.
Bliss's biggest appeal is in providing people with a spa-like experience at home. The line features multiple masks, in addition to exfoliation treatments, moisturizers, and body care products for a variety of skin types and concerns. While there are some missteps in the line (including fragranced products and some instances of jar packaging), there are some gems to be found among Bliss's offerings you just have to know where to look.
