It is face mask Friday. Another week is over and its time to chill and have a pamper. Skincare is really important and actually something I love. Every week I take the time to try a new mask and review it for you all. But also it allows me to top up my skincare and have healthy skin. Most are for my skin type, normal to dry but others take my fancy and end up in the basket as well.
This week’s mask is by the well know brand Garnier. I have used some of their masks previously but this is one of their newer nutri bomb sheet masks. Their nutri bomb milky sheet mask is to help when your skin is dry and in need of an intense hit of hydration to rep lump it with moisture. The mask is soaked in a milky serum to nourish and rehydrate dry skin. Enriched with coconut milk and rep lumping hyaluronic aid.
As all of Garnier’s skin active nutri bomb products, the packaging is quite simple. Just a base colour which this is a neutral ombre from white to earthy light brown. Obviously its coconut based so its based on the colours of coconuts. Other than the coconut that is in the middle circle on the pack, which is another regular on the skin active nutri bomb masks. A splash of coconut milk escaping the circle. Then the branding and the title, easy and straight forward.
The back of packaging is always boring. As long as you read/look at the directions you are good to go. Maybe the ingredients as well. Most of it isn’t readable anyway, for its too small or in a different language. Which is good because its sold around the world. Directions are both written and in picture form. I use to think picture form was better and in most cases, it still is but some are a little confusing. Always check the timings to wear as well because some love to fool you!
On to the mask. Well it tells you its a nutri bomb milky sheet mask and just from tearing open the pack, I can confirm this is packed full of moisturising liquids, though the consistency is more of a coconut cream than milk. It was a nice texture as well and not sticky, which some can be. The pack was full as well as the mask, so do be careful removing the sheet from its packet.
When I had opened the sheet mask out fully, I actually couldn’t tell which was the side to go straight to my face. I think it went with the inside layer. The directions ask to apply to a clean face and I always do anyway, most of the time straight after a shower or bath. Personally I don’t understand anyone who would put a mask on a face full of makeup, seems pointless to me!
Of course, sheet masks aren’t my favourite and I still think they need to have a range of sizes. The directions tell you to put on to face, and contour it until it fits. Well I need a whole slice I reckon cut from each cheek to get it to fit and not gape open, with the many flaps that fold. So after some playing around, I could do no more than to leave as or take off.
Off I went for the 15 minutes, sheet masks are good with timings and you can always go over that time. I wouldn’t go under the time though or you would get the best out of it. This is a reason I don’t get why people say they have no time for face masks and skincare. Honestly, what can you do in 15 minutes? Because though I relax with mine on and watch some YouTube or something. 15 minutes, I could put the dinner on, hoover, tidy up, all sorts!
And the time goes fast, you sit down and the next thing its time to take off. I definitely had this on for more than 15 minutes. Not that I actually time them but if I am relaxing or watching something that is on for longer, then so be it.
Sheet masks are the easiest to remove. Basically just pull them off. Now this mask had a lot in it to begin with when applying. But also had a lot on still after the 25 minutes I was wearing it. The good thing about it though, is the layer left on my face was a lot of the coconut cream looking ingredients. Meaning I could massage in.
Using masks before bed is really handy as well because you are told to gently massage in, with this one. But there is only so much you can rub in. If you are going bed, then it has all night basically to absorb whilst you sleep. A good thing about this is that it tells you to rub it to neck as well as face, then use a cotton pad and dab the rest off.
My face feels really refreshed, soft and definitely hydrated. Actually the perfect amount of hydration as well. I hate those masks that take you to a whole another level and overboard. Today I am about day 2 after using it and still my skin is in really good, healthy condition. The only drier spot is where I had a breakout the other week and a slight scab is there.
This is a bargain sheet mask at £2.99. which is affordable to everyone. And we all need a glow up from time to time. It is always good to boost your skin especially now as its beginning to get colder outside.
You can’t really go wrong with a Garnier bomb tissue mask for £2.99. It totally works, has enough for anyone to use and benefit from, whether your skin is really dry and in need of tlc or just the boost I needed to keep my skin in a healthy condition.
I honestly feel that Garnier have got that good quality and knowledge to make any mask good. A personal wish though would be for masks to come in sizes or something to get the fit better. Or I guess move the folds to a different area. Obviously having a one fits all kinda mask is easy and affordable, but for the £2.99, I would pay up to £5 for this, if it fit better.
Garnier has definitely created another good tissue mask here. What is your go to mask at the minute?
