I recently purchased the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask recently (featured in my Mini Boots Haul!) and I was super excited to try it. I have been really interested in trying sheet masks but I wasn’t really sure where to buy them. A lot of people buy them from Ebay and whilst I’m happy buying makeup brushes from there, I feel a bait cautious buying skincare from Ebay, particularly from unknown brands. So when I spotted this in Boots, I grabbed it straight away!
This tissue mask is said to be ‘super-hydrating’ and to reduce the appearance of fine lines, boosting radiance. As someone with dry skin, this sounded absolutely perfect! I had a shower and cleansed my skin as usual, then set about trying this mask.
Firstly, you take it out of the packaging, apply to your face and then peel off the blue layer, leaving behind the tissue mask. The scent was OK, I can’t really describe it very well, it smelt almost medical! Don’t get me wrong, it didn’t smell awful and wasn’t off-putting, I think I just expected a more sweet scent.
The mask is quite big so you definitely have your whole face covered, but I just couldn’t stop laughing at what I looked like. I looked hilarious, my boyfriend and family all had a chuckle at what I looked like too! So the mask gets 10/10 for entertainment!
The mask itself is very wet and it felt like it could actually slide off if I moved around too much, but I didn’t mind that at all, because it means you to actually need to stay still for a while, encouraging you to relax.
After 15 minutes, I removed the mask and massaged in the excess serum. I didn’t actully apply my night moisturiser that night, as I wanted to see what the mask could do alone. The serum sank in really well, and my skin did feel really soft in the morning. However, after the next day, my skin felt more or less back to normal. So I would take the claim of one mask resulting in one week’s worth of serum with a pinch of salt.
For only a pound or so, this is a lovely mask that I’d definitely pick up again to use when my skin feels like it is lacking radiance or moisture. I feel interested in trying out the Garnier Moisture Bomb Moisturiser now. I’d love to try some more tissue/sheet masks now, so please leave me any recommendations! X
