Between Tik-Tok’s big boom and the surge of countless up-and-coming beauty brands, the presence of younger generations in the beauty industry has never been more prevalent. New skin-care line and community Bubble has summed up this trend by aiming its products toward teens and the demographic’s specific skin-care needs. Many similar brands are also aimed at teens, so what makes Bubble Skincare so different? It is known as the “first modern, affordable, science-backed skincare formulated specifically to clean, balance, and hydrate teenage skin,” says the brand.
Bubble’s skin-care philosophy aims for each product to feature advanced clean ingredients—think willow bark aloe and rosewater—to help fight occasional breakouts and it’s already making waves in the industry, as the brand has been recently endorsed as an essential by Youtube and skin-care influencer, Hyram Yarbro (aka @skincarebyhyram).
To understand the hype first-hand, I decided to try the products for myself. After receiving a package of products from Bubble, the first thing I noticed was the high-quality packaging and how creative each product design was. Each night for the past few weeks, I have been introducing a number of Bubble products into my personal skin-care routine—here’s how they fared.
Slam Dunk Hydrating Moisturizer ($15)
Key Ingredients: Vitamin E for antioxidant protection and avocado oil to soothe and nourish normal-to-dry skin types.
Added Benefit: Not your average moisturizer, a superfood-packed blend of glycerin, water, hydrolyzed pea protein, glucose, sodium chloride, and sodium succinate delivers protective and reparative benefits to the skin and shields it from blue light–included damage.
The Bottom Line: This was definitely my all-time favorite product I tried from Bubble. To start, the packaging and dispenser was unique and made me eager to incorporate it into my morning and evening routine. The moisturizer was super light and absorbed into my skin super easily as well. Thanks to its texture and ingredient list, I would highly recommend it to anyone with sensitive or normal-to-dry skin.
Key Ingredients: Green tea extract is incorporated into the toner to provide moisture and a calming effect to the skin.
Additionally, willow bark extract was highlighted as one of the most featured ingredients in Bubble’s lineup. Salicin, one of the key components of this extract, is a key anti-inflammatory, while willow bark extract lightly exfoliates the surface, too.
The Bottom Line: Before opening the packaging of the Bounce Back Refreshing Toner, I assumed that the product would be applied with a cotton round or something similar. I was pleasantly surprised to see that toner is packaged in a spray bottle, which can be easily incorporated into a morning or evening routine, or just when you need a refreshing pick-me-up.
Key Ingredients: Montmorillonite clay is a crucial component of the mask and helps to remove impurities from the pores while gently exfoliating the skin for a clean, smooth finish. Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich azelaic acid also plays a major role in nourishing and soothing the skin.
The Bottom Line: This formula is light and smooth and does a number on impurities and clogged pores. Because I have sensitive skin, many clay masks I have tried in the past have left my skin red and irritated. After washing off this one, however, I was pleased to see my skin was already looking brighter and feeling more nourished.
