Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Eye Mask
This misguided system consists of a liquid that you dispense onto a pre-cut cloth mask designed to fit under the eye area. The masks and liquid are packaged together, and you soak the masks before you use them by squeezing the package. What you’re getting, however, is far from an energy drink for skin as this eye mask is described. The good news is that the ingredients do not provide “3 forms of … oxygen,” as claimed, which is a good thing because it means your skin won’t be exposed to free-radical damage, of which oxygen is a major source. Paradoxically, Blisslabs also touts this product’s antioxidant content, which is just contradictory nonsense. In essence that would mean this product would just be busy fighting against itself.
More bad news about this really poorly done product is the price, which is an insult for what amounts to a liquid that contains mostly water, slip agents, relatively useless plant extracts, and preservative. If you’re curious to see how cucumber may work to reduce puffy eyes (cucumber is one of the plant extracts in here), try slicing a cucumber at home and steeping the slices in chamomile tea. You’ll be getting a more potent version of this product for a fraction of the cost.
Like an energy drink for your eyes, this instant brightening treatment is 'eye-deal' for those who want to fake a full 8 hours of sleep. With 3 forms of glow-inducing oxygen, antioxidant vitamin C and puff-pummeling cucumber extract, it'll leave eyes looking lively in 15 minutes flat.
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.
