Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask

Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask

Hello Lovelies

You may have seen in my recent Boots haul and new in beauty products post that I picked up one of the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Masks, the mask was on offer for 99p down from £1.49 so I thought since it was less than a pound and I'd heard lots of great things about the masks, I'd give it a whirl.

If you're a regular reader of my blog, you will know that my skin is extremely dry and dehydrated and that it is also the bane of my life, my skin drives me insane, and at the moment it is horrible, it is possibly the driest it has ever been, it is flaky and feels tight, it is just awful. I'd heard so many good things about the Garnier tissue masks that I thought I'd see if the mask could do anything for my lizard like skin and lets face it, it wouldn't be a crying shame if it didn't since I was only spending 99p.

The mask comes in foil packaging which is blue and silver, on the front it explains a little about the mask and on the back are the instructions of how to use the mask, plus a little bit more about it and the ingredients list.

What Garnier Say About The Mask

Super-hydrating revitalising mask for dehydrated skin. Intensely rehydrates skin, reduces the look of fine lines, and revives radiance. Enriched with pomegranate extract, hyaluronic acid, and plant serum.

Is Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask right for me?

Yes, if your skin is dehydrated, shows the effects of time and your lifestyle (dullness, irregularities, fine lines...), and if you are looking for an effective solution to rehydrate and revitalise the radiance of your skin.

How is it different?

This super hydrating tissue mask, inspired by Asia, diffuses the equivalent level of hydrating serum as per 1 week's use of day care.* Truly innovative, its ultra-thin tissue is infused with a super-hydrating serum. Unmask smoother, bouncier, healthier looking skin in just 15 minutes. Applied to the face, it acts like a hydration wrap that continuously diffuses all the effectiveness of the serum intensely hydrating your skin. Its amazing freshness quenches and comforts skin instantly, for a pure moment of absolute pampering. The mask is easy to apply and remove. Suitable for all skin types, even sensitive.

*Equivalent to the concentration of hydrating glycerin in Moisture Bomb Day Cream used daily for 1 week.

My Thoughts

I was actually quite excited to try the mask and find out if it helped my skin at all, and when I posted a photograph of me wearing the mask on my Instagram account so many people said they were really interested to hear what I thought of the mask too. 

Simon applied the mask for me, he said it was easy to remove from the packaging but it is very wet and slippery feeling. When Simon put the mask onto my face it felt very cold, it was so cold it took my breath a little, it wasn't horrible but I didn't expect it to feel so cold, it would be nice to use on a hot day, if we ever get any this summer!

Simon positioned the mask which he found relatively easy to do, the mask itself is white and there is a blue sheet over the top of the mask, the instructions are to place the mask on the face and then remove the blue sheet once the mask is in place, Simon did that and then I smoothed the mask down and positioned it a little more too.

The mask is big and was a little big for my face and considering I don't have a small face at all it may be too big if you do. I didn't put the mask right up to my hairline though as my hair is very oily and had just been washed and since we were going out the same night, I didn't want to have to have it washed again, so the mask was about half an inch from my hair line. 

The instructions say to leave the mask for 15 minutes but my friend rang me whilst I had the mask on so mine was on for more like 30-35 minutes, I do usually leave a hydrating mask on for longer than instructed though because of how dry my skin is. The mask felt fine whilst it was on the skin, and didn't feel uncomfortable, it felt a little strange because it's something I'm not used to but it didn't feel unpleasant at all. 

The mask remained feeling wet throughout, it was easy to remove and simply peeled away from my skin. I was left with rather a lot of serum on my skin once I had removed the mask, so I massaged that into my face and it sank into my skin nicely and once dry, my skin felt soft, smooth and hydrated. 

Although my skin did feel soft and smooth, my skin didn't appear "bouncy" or look healthier and radiant. My skin did however feel lovely and soft and smooth and I applied my makeup a couple of hours after using the mask and my makeup applied well and felt nice too. I have sensitive, eczema prone skin and didn't experience any difficulties at all during or after using the mask. 

Unfortunately I don't agree with all Gainer's claims regarding the mask, my skin didn't look bouncy or healthier and I'm sad to say it didn't look radiant either but it did feel lovely and soft and smooth and not tight at all, the mask definitely provided hydration and my makeup applied well after using it. My skin didn't however feel like it had a weeks worth of hydrating serum applied to it and although the day after using it, my skin wasn't as flaky, by that evening it was starting to look very dry again and unfortunately by the next morning I was back to lizard face, that said my skin is extremely dry, I suffer from eczema and psoriasis and my facial skin is extremely dry, so considering that, I think the mask performed well and my skin did feel lovely and soft and smooth and my makeup applied well and looked lovely after using the mask. 

I am so pleased I tried the mask and I will be re purchasing, they are a great price and they do a really good job, for a mask to give my skin hydration and it feel so soft and smooth and my makeup to apply well and look nice is brilliant, so all in all for 99p I think the mask did a good job and I will be using the masks again. I used the mask the in the morning of a day I was going out for a family meal in the evening because my skin is so dry and I wanted my skin to look better and for my makeup to look nice and not cakey, and it did, my makeup looked nice and flawless and not cakey at all and my skin felt lovely.

I think if your skin isn't as dry as mine, you may well get a good few days of hydrated skin from using a mask but unfortunately my skin is just too dry and dehydrated but I do feel I got good results considering my skin type and I would recommend giving the mask a try.
