Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Cleansing Foam
This liquid-to-foam cleanser makes claims that its formula cannot possibly match. But before we discuss the claims, you need to know this cleanser is overpriced for what you get and also intensely fragrant. Fragrance isn’t skin care; in fact, daily use of highly fragranced products like this is irritating to skin and not the best for use around the eyes (though this cleanser does a good job removing makeup).
Bliss claims this energizes the complexion and delivers oxygen to the skin along with a “super-powered” form of vitamin C. First, delivering oxygen to skin isn’t a good thing unless your skin is wounded or ulcerated. If it’s healthy and intact, delivering oxygen won’t promote revitalization—it promotes free-radical damage which his pro-aging. In truth, this cleanser cannot deliver even one puff of oxygen to skin, so the claim is completely without merit. Even if it did deliver oxygen, the vitamin C this contains is an antioxidant, so would work against the oxygenating properties this cleanser is said to have.
Speaking of the vitamin C, the form used is plain ascorbic acid. There’s nothing super-powered about it, and in fact its benefit (especially the tiny amount this cleanser contains) will be rinsed down the drain before it can improve your skin. Please don’t fall for this cleanser’s claims and do consider other, less fragrant, less expensive options instead.
Washes away makeup and impurities as it instantly energizes the complexion. Used in the radiance-revving Triple Oxygen Treatment at bliss spas, this refreshing liquid-to-foam formula is the first to deliver oxygen along with a super-powered form of vitamin C. It also provides hydrating properties. Tired skin is left looking bright and revitalized.
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.
