Earlier this spring Garnier graciously offered 1700 free samples of Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Sheet Masks; and I was one of the lucky ones selected to try it.
Skin care has always been important to me and I absolutely LOVE using facial masks. I use cream type face mask products all the time and have never tried sheet masks before. This is why I am especially excited to test and review the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Sheet Mask.
What you need to know about the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Sheet Mask:
Its formula contains pomegranate extract and Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is naturally found in the skin and provides intense hydration for your dermis layer. In an instant, the sheet mask offers intense and deep moisturizing benefits for the skin. After just one use, it leaves the skin feeling softer, looking fresher and provides an all around more radiant glow.
This sheet mask offers a non-greasy formula as it’s free from petroleum products and mineral oil.
This super hydrating sheet mask was designed to provide long-lasting hydration and prevent moisture loss throughout the day; which is especially great for people like me who have to hydrate frequently to prevent drying skin.
How to use the Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Skin Mask:
1. First you’re going to want to wash your face and start with a clean palette.
2. Open the package and gently unfold the sheet mask. Take care not to tear the openings.
3. Apply the white cloth mask to your face with the blue film on the outside.
4. Gently peel away the blue film taking care not to peel the mask away with it.
5. Adjust and smooth out the mask to fit the contours of your face. Tuck excess if you have any under your chin.
6. Set your timer for 15 minutes and do something else nice for yourself, like reading a book or having a cup of tea (that’s my kind of wine; feel free to treat yourself to actual wine if you wish!)
7. When your timer sounds, remove the mask and gently massage the remaining product into your skin. There’s no need to rinse this hydrating product away.
8. Enjoy your fresh, radiant skin!
Here’s what I think of Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Sheet Mask:
Applying the mask
Applying the mask is simple but there are a couple of things that happened during application that you’ll want to keep in mind when using Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Sheet Masks.
1 – The mask comes folded in four, so you must take care not to tear the facial openings. This is not indicated on the package instructions and I had a little bit of difficulty getting it apart. It resulted in me stretching out one of the eye openings.
2 – The step where you remove the blue film; despite being gentle, I managed to pull the sheet mask off my face with the film. I simply separated it and put it back on my face. However, it did mean that I had to do more smoothing of the mask from step 5 of using the mask.
While the mask was on
My face felt cool and refreshing with the mask on. I noticed some tingling in my skin but it wasn’t uncomfortable in any way.
I’m used to facial masks that dry up and tighten as they dry, then have to be washed off. The Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Sheet Mask was a refreshing change for me. It felt therapeutic with its moisturizing properties.
I sat with a book while using the mask and the time zipped by. Is it just me or does everyone find that when you are taking some time for yourself, it always flies by so quickly?
After the mask was removed
There was a lot of moisturizing product left on my face when I removed the mask. I followed the instructions and proceeded to gently massage the remaining product into my skin.
I found the left over product has a slow absorption rate, so it took several minutes to massage the rest of it into my skin. It left my face feeling slightly sticky and tacky. I didn’t wash it off, as per the package instructions.
After about a half hour post-removal of the mask, my face no longer felt sticky to the touch. In fact, my skin was softer and smoother to the touch than before applying the mask. Thank you hydration!
My final evaluation
I love facial masks; it’s like having a mini spa day in the comfort of your home! Whenever I get the opportunity to try a new face mask, I’m reeling with excitement. I got lucky being selected to try this Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Sheet Mask sample and was ecstatic when it arrived.
I love when my skin naturally glows and there’s no sign of dry, flaky skin. This mask delivered the right amount of deep hydrating moisture to my face and was long-lasting. My face was still very hydrated the following day after applying the mask.
My skin was left feeling softer and I swear a little younger looking too. I also noticed that it brightened up my skin from the dull state it was in prior to using the mask. My skin looked healthier.
My experience with this mask was positive and I would use these again in future whenever I need a boost of intense hydration for my face. I recommend only using a deep hydrating mask like Garnier SkinActive Moisture Bomb Super Hydrating Sheet Mask on a weekly basis or longer; depending on your skin’s hydration needs.
