About two years ago I tried the Triple Oxygen Treatment from the famous Bliss Spa in Soho NYC. I paid slightly more than $200 USD ($170+ taxes and tip) to receive the famous skin reviving treatment (75MINS). The results were instant! My skin felt refreshed and energized. My skin prior to the treatment was really dull and tired looking especially since I just got off a flight the day before and haven’t had proper sleep. But after the Triple Oxygen Treatment, my skin looked brighter and was glowing: it was as if I was wearing a primer when my skin was in fact bare!
So after being blissed with the Bliss Triple Oxygen Treatment but without a Bliss Spa near where I live, I kept a look out for other types of oxygen facials in my city but never found one that was as blissful… So when I came across the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask being sold at Sephora, I bought it right away hoping to relive some of that Bliss Spa experience at comfort of my home!
I bought the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask (3.4 oz) about a year ago. On average, I used the mask 3-5 times each month, and although due to the container being non-transparent, I can’t be certain exactly how much product is still left, there is definitely still enough of the product for me to use it for another month or more!

Let me make one thing clear, I’m in no way implying that the Triple Oxygen Treatment I received at the Bliss Spa is similar in result or quality to the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask! C’mon, was I really expecting that a $60 at home treatment (that takes 5 mins) to compare in quality and result of a professional treatment that takes more than an hour using products and machines that costs thousands of dollars? Haha, no.
Before I get into my personal experience with the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask, what’s all the hype about oxygen facials/skin care? Is oxygen actually beneficial for the skin? Unfortunately, I don’t have the answers as I haven’t come across any solid research findings for or against it. However, I did read several articles about oxygen facials. It seems the hype of oxygen facials sky rocketed when Madonna leaked in a beauty magazine interview that she adores her oxygen facials so much that she ended up having oxygen machines at all her homes! There are scientific research findings that explains how oxygen treatments can stimulate new collagen growth and in turn benefit the skin. But as with many scientific research findings, everything is just in theory per se with no solid findings. I’m not going get into the actual science and theory behind oxygen treatments but if you like to find out more just Google search “oxygen facial treatments” and you should find tonnes of articles relating to the topic. Just be sure your reading articles or papers written and published by credible and reputable sources!
When I purchased Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask I was excited to try it out but at the same time, I wasn’t expecting much. At the most, I was hoping that this product will help my skin feel energized.
I start with a freshly cleansed face and spray my face with Avene Thermal Water Spray to make my skin damp, and I take couple of pumps of the product and quickly massage a generous layer of the product all over my face and neck (avoiding the eye area). The product soon starts to foam up. There is no uncomfortableness at all. By the end of the 5 minutes, most the the frothy foam disappears, and I proceed to rinse off with water. Without the foam, the product feels like slimy gel on the skin. It took few rinses wash everything off.
The result wasn’t extraordinary or remarkable, and it definitely didn’t compare to the Triple Oxygen Treatment from the Bliss Spa. However, my skin felt super soft and appeared brightened and clear. Whereas the results of the Triple Oxygen Treatment from the Bliss spa lasted for weeks after, the effect of Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask was short lived; about half a day.
Do I think Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is worth a try? As the name suggests, this mask does offer instant results. After 5 minutes, dull skin is revived. And for less than $60 you get 36+ uses. Therefore, as long people have realistic expectations, I don’t think many people would be disappointed with this mask.
Do keep in mind that this is a quick fix for dull and tired skin. It will not produce any long term and/or anit-aging results. This would be an ideal product for someone who recently got an at-spa oxygen facial and want to keep up the result a little longer or for someone that that travels often therefore suffer from dull skin that jet lag often gives. It a good product for quick reviving of dull skin so if your skin isn’t really dull or tired to begin with you probably won’t see much difference!
