Earlier this year I attended a Garnier Launch and got to play around with all of the upcoming product launches, with the most exciting being the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask. I had read amazing international reviews of these masks, and was hoping they would launch in SA. We received a big box of goodies to take home, but unfortunately the masks were not included, I knew I should have sneaked one into my bag! Jokes aside, the box was lovely, and you can have a look at my thoughts on those products here, the Ultimate Blends Delicate Soother range and the BB Cream for Combination to Oily skin are AMAZING!
Fast-forward a couple of months, and these lovely *masks landed at my door. To say I was excited is an understatement. A super-hydrating range of masks, suitable for different skin types, that contain a weeks worth of hydrating serum, I bet you are getting excited too!
What I love about Garnier, aside from the quality and affordability, is firstly, how they keep up with trends, and secondly, how easy they make it for the consumer. Sheet masks have become increasingly popular, and Garnier is the first, if not the only readily available and affordable skincare brand that has jumped on it. The second thing that stands out to me is the “Is this product right for you?” section on all of the products, which makes it so easy for consumers to identify which product is suitable for their skin type, etc, without needing too much skincare knowledge.
Just looking at the back of the masks, you can see, Pink is for dry, sensitive skin, Green for oily, combination skin and Blue for dull, ageing skin.
All of the masks contain hydrating super-star hyaluronic acid, but each of them have also have additional extracts specific to the skin type it is designed to treat. The Soothing Mask contains chamomile extract to soothe dry and sensitive skin, the Re-Balancing Mask includes green tea extract to purify and mattify the skin, and lastly the Revitalising Mask contains pomegranate extract to revive dull skin and restore radiance.
These pack a serious hydration punch, and are so saturated with hydrating serum, but somehow they don’t drip! What kind of magic is this Garnier? After using the Revitalising Mask for 15 minutes, my skin looked plumper and healthier, and my dehydration lines were hardly noticeable, as if my skin had just had a big sip of water! Remember, after you are done, don’t throw away the used mask and extra serum, rub it over your hands and chest, I even rubbed some onto my feet!
One of my pet hates about sheet masks, is that they slide around and don’t fit snugly on my face. But, these do! They don’t shift around or lift, and they even have slits to hook around your ears. They also somehow defy gravity, even without hooking them around my ears, I could sit upright and the mask did not move one inch. The one thing I didn’t really get about this mask, is the blue film that you need to remove after positioning it on your face, it felt a bit pointless to me.
For the price, R49,95, I definitely think these masks are worth it, a weekly treat for your skin, and a chance for you to just take a step back from your busy life and spend 15 minutes focusing on you.
Have you tried the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Masks yet?
