Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask by Garnier.
Super Hydrating Rebalancing Mask – Normal to Combination skin,
1 Mask = 1 Week of Hydrating active.
My Mum bought me this, along with one for herself a few weeks back and I have been waiting for a good opportunity to use it. I noticed over the weekend that I had a couple of little spots and used some spot cream which subsequently ended up really drying my skin out, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to try this mask out properly.
The tissue mask is a bit different to the usual messy mud/clay masks I normally use in that they are a ready-made mask complete with eye, nose and mouth holes.
The idea behind tissue masks is that they are packed full of hydrating serum and ‘skin-loving’ ingredients so when used directly on your face, can be fully absorbed. This is to give more noticeable, better results.
The infused tissue is supposed to soak your skin with hydration, and Garnier say, their Moisture Bomb mask delivers one weeks’ worth of serum in fifteen minutes!
The Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask is a Hydrating mask so I decided to go about my evening shower routine like normal, and pop the mask on after so my skin could take in all the moisture whilst I slept. After I had dried my hair and my got myself a cup of tea, I unwrapped the mask and put it on my skin. Straight away I could feel it was full of moisture and it had a subtle cucumber like smell to it that was nice and refreshing. I did struggle to put all the holes in the mask in the right place but once you wiggle it round a few times it settled nicely on my skin and I was still able to drink my tea. The Packet recommends leaving the mask on for 15 minutes but by the time I had got it into the right place on my skin it was more like 20 minutes in total.
(During my 15 minutes relaxation time I listened to a new artist I recently discovered watching ‘The Night Shift’ called Dean Lewis, he has an EP on iTunes called ‘Same Kind of Different’. I have been listening to it non-stop all evening and if you get a chance I would recommend you have a listen.)
The mask was full of serum and even my hands were covered in it, so I used it like a moisturiser on my hands and forearms. I still had a lot excess serum after removing the mask which I massaged round my face for some extra hydration.
I looked in the mirror, and I could see that my face was almost wet looking and my skin felt instantly radiant and hydrated after such a short period of time.
This product is definitely something I will be looking to use in my skin routine, at least twice a month or once a week if needed. It’s easy to use and lives up to what it says on the packet. I am very pleased with this mask. I can’t wait to see what masks Garnier will be bringing out next.
In Boots and Superdrug These masks are priced at £1.49. I believe they are selling them at Tesco for around £3.00.
