REVIEW:Garnier Moisture Bomb Hydrating Face Mask

GARNIER

The Moisture Bomb Tissue Masks contain 100% natural cellulose fibre tissue that adheres perfectly to your facial contours and works like a hydrating compress by infusing every part of the face with moisture.  Each mask contains Hyaluronic Acid, a hydrating serum, and natural actives that quench the skin by recharging the superficial layers of the epidermis with moisture.

Super Hydrating Replumping Mask For Dehydrated Skin – This mask is infused with Hyaluronic Acid, a hydrating serum and superfood Pomegranate extract.  It enhances skin radiance and reduces fine lines, whilst refreshing and quenching skin for intense rehydration.  Certain compounds present in Pomegranates stop certain enzymes from breaking down collagen, they also assist in the growth of fibroblasts (cells that produce elastin and fiber to ensure that your skin remains smooth and supple).  Free radical damage often leads to problems like age spots and hyperpigmentation – Pomegranate extract is very beneficial in this regard because it protects the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) and facilitates cell regeneration in the epidermis and dermis (inner layer).  The result?  A fresh and radiant complexion.

Super Hydrating Soothing Mask For Dry & Sensitive Skin – This mask is infused with Chamomile extract (a flower known for its soothing and calming properties), as well as Hyaluronic Acid and a hydrating serum.  It promises to relieve sensations of tightness and rehydrate the skin.  Skin is left feeling soft, soothed, and best of all…super comfortable.  Remember, sensitive skin can also be problematic skin that is prone to acne breakouts, redness and overall sensitivity.  Chamomile extract really is a great active ingredient that is antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic too (not just soothing).  It’s also high in antioxidants, which helps reduce acne inflammation & breakouts AND actually increases the penetration & effectiveness of other skincare products.  Chamomile is the type of ingredient you want to include in your skincare routine (whether you  have normal skin, acne prone skin, dry skin, or pigmentation areas) because it purifies the skin, increases skin repair, and promotes a healthy glowing complexion as it heals and restores.  This one might just be my favourite one out of all three masks!

Super Hydrating Rebalancing Mask For Normal To Combination Skin – This mask is infused with a hydrating serum, Hyaluronic Acid, and Green Tea extract (known for its mattifying properties).  It promises to rebalance the skin for a mattified, purified complexion with tighter pores.  Because Green Tea extract is naturally rich in antioxidants, it protects the skin from the damaging effects of free radicals (environmental pollution and the sun’s UVA & UVB rays).  It’s also a good anti-inflammatory agent that reduces inflammation (acne breakouts), and helps to inhibit collagenase (a collagen-reducing enzyme that breaks down collagen) to maintain firm, plump and supple skin.  This one is not suitable for sensitive skin (the other two are), mainly because its mattifying properties.

My Review – I am so obsessed with sheet masks, I love the immediate results they give all while looking like your in a horror movie. Sheet masks are typically aimed at weekly uses for that little something extra in your skincare routine.

Each sheet mask features 2 layers – a soft 100% natural cellulose fiber sheet, plus a protective blue film which you peel off once you have applied the mask to your face. The mask is super easy to apply and clings to your skin so every nook & cranny gets the good stuff, without any drips. As soon as the mas is applied to the face it feels very hydrating and refreshing. I was so tired last night this was an instant relief to my eyes and face which was very soothing and relaxing. Garnier advises to leave the mash on for 15 minutes but I think I ended up leaving mine on for over 30min, it was so nice I didn’t want to take it off! After removing the mask you can massage the leftover serum into your skin. I found I didn’t really have any serum to rub in so my skin must have been super dehydrated. I would advise to apply this mask in the evenings before bedtime to benefit from the hydrating ingredients.

It’s important to remember that certain skincare ingredients produce results immediately, some can take a few hours, and others can take a few weeks.  When it comes to these types of masks, it’s more about how my skin FEELS afterwards (refreshed, soothed, hydrated), rather than how my skin looks.  The active ingredients will deliver noticeable results after continued use (clearer, glowy and more radiant skin), but you’ll have to be patient.

The Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Masks are a cheap and cheerful way for your skin to get extra moisture it needs with minimal effort, with that pampered feeling. It’s also a great product to take travelling as it weighs hardly anything. I couldn’t say for sure if it lives up to the claim of reducing fine lines, because I personally couldn’t see much difference in that respect. But I can definitely confirm that it revives radiance and instantly hydrates the skin, which is exactly what I was hoping for.

I grabbed my Garnier Moisture Bomb Mask from Boots for a bargain £2.99 and as it was 3 for 2 I bought all 3!
