Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask | CharlotteBehappy




I know I've not written anything in a while but instead of giving loads of excuses (a levels what else) I'm just going to go straight into another review.

So today I tried at the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask.
It's a sheet mask that costs £0.99 and it claims it's a 'super-hydrating revitalising mask'. The mask is designed to 'revitalise the radiance of your skin'. It comes in a big packet with a fabric sheet which is covered in a mix between a lotion and a gel. It has a blue layer which you peel off when you put the mask on. The mask is supposed to be really hydrating (it's apparently inspired by Asia - not sure if that sentence is particularly nice) and it claims to be the equivalent of use a serum for a week. It contains pomegranate extract (which can actually treat haemorrhoids) and Hyaluronic acid (which is used in lip filler, and there is no evidence to suggest it is particularly anti-aging). The ingredients also state is contains witch hazel which is a natural anti-acne treatment. You place the mask on your face for 15 minutes then take it off, by which time your skin should be intensely rehydrated, smoother and radiant.


Now with the application. So this mask in general is very big like most would be but the eye, nose and mouth holes are way too small (or maybe mine are absolutely massive). It smells quite clean and lotion-y (like the aftersun from this brand if you've ever tried it). It slips and slides around your face a bit but it stays on. It stings a little bit so this may not actually be ideal for sensitive skin despite saying that it is. Unlike a traditional mask, there's no way to tell if it has 'set', you would need to time yourself.
So I left this on my face for about half an hour. There were definitely noticeable effects from this mask. My skin was definitely plump and firmer. It looked the same afterwards and there was a lot left on my skin. I wiped it away with a cotton pad and there was a bit of residue left which soon just went into the skin (like a serum). It doesn't leave a tacky or dry feeling to the skin at all; I think the purpose is for it to be like using a cream. It definitely hydrates your skin, leading it smooth and without and bumps or dry patches.
Overall it's not too expensive but it is a bit gimmicky and fiddly but if you want something to moisturise your skin, it's a pretty good idea.
