Can you believe it that I’ve only just tried a sheet mask?! I’m actually pretty surprised myself as I do love face masks so anything that makes that process easier and less effort is surely something to appeal. For me, the first sheet mask I got my hands on was the original Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Sheet Mask that I tried at the weekend. Here’s my thoughts on it.
The packaging is pretty simple and perfect for a sheet mask product. It’s simply decorative foil which works well to lock in the hydration into the product and stop air from getting to it. One thing I like about this product is how affordable it is, I swear this was on offer at £1.00 or £1.50 when I bought it but it’s now £3.99 which is still not bad for a one-use product.
Starting with the product description, this is described by Superdrug as the following:
“Super-hydrating revitalising mask for dehydrated skin. Intensely rehydrates skin, reduces the look of fine lines, and revives radiance. Enriched with pomegranate extract, hyaluronic acid, and plant serum.”
We also have a full list of ingredients below:
Aqua / Water, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Alcohol, P-Anisic Acid, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Hamamelis Virginiana Leaf Water / Witch Hazel Leaf Water, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Limonene, Mannose, Methylparaben, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Hydroxide, Potassium Sorbate, Propylparaben, Punica Granatum Fruit Extract, PVM/MA Copolymer, Sodium Benzoate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Sorbic Acid, Sorbitol, Xanthan Gum, Parfum / Fragrance.
Unfortunately this does contain fragrance, alcohol and parabens which isn’t great but it does also contain plenty of water plus which hazel that is known for soothing the skin and reducing blemishes.
In terms of application this was my first sheet mask, I did find this a little tricky as it was my first time using a sheet mask and you need to smooth it out as much as possible. Having said that the eyes, nose and mouth holes were large enough to make it easier, once it was stuck on my face it stayed there until I removed it.
In terms of feeling this felt absolutely amazing on the skin, super cooling, super hydrating and once I’d peeled it off (which was easy and painless) my skin looked much more hydrated and noticeably plumper – though the effect doesn’t last for days on end.
* First time noob trying this out I don’t think it did terribly though I could have done better!
Overall I really loved using this and I’ve already recommend it to people so I would repurchase! I’m quite keen to try the others in the range, I think the Camomile one will be nice for soothing the skin. I’m also looking forward to trying more from the Moisture Bomb range and other sheets masks, leave your sheet mask recommendations in the comments please!
Thanks for reading.
