REVIEW: Garnier SkinActive Moisture bomb masks

FullSizeRender

Considering the time of year (and the copious amounts of chocolate around) my skin has been in need of a little TLC. After seeing these new Garner sheet masks around I decided to give them a go seeing as they’re so affordable ($3-$5NZD). There are three different masks that I’ve been able to find however I do know there are a few others, I just haven’t been able to find them anywhere in my city. They all have the same sort of base which is that they’re super rehydrating and rejuvenating, they then each have an individual skin target and ‘deal’ with a certain skin issue. The ones I’ve reviewed target normal to dehydrated, normal to combination, and dry or sensitive skin.

For Normal to Dehydrated skin

This first mask is the blue packaged one and claims to:

  • Intensely rehydrate skin
  • Boost skins radiance
  • Even skin complexion

It contains Pomegranate extract, hyaluronic acid, and a hydrating serum.

I found this mask was definitely moisturising and I actually used it to help with a few spots that had gone quite dry and irritated from my acne treatment. It definitely soothed them the minute I had the mask on and has really calmed down the irritation of them. However, as I have oily skin as it is, I didn’t feel this mask was necessary for my overall skin appearance. It has made my skin slightly more glory but this isn’t something I generally need due to how easily my skin and makeup looks shiny. I would definitely recommend this for people who have dry or irritated skin that want to bring a bit more glow to their skin.

For Normal to Combination skin

The next mask is the green package and it claims to:

  • Intensely rehydrate
  • Purify and mattify skin
  • Visibly reduce pores and imperfections

It contains Green tea, hyaluronic acid, and a hydrating serum.

You can probably already tell, this is my absolute FAVOURITE of the three. The reason I even tried these masks is because I first tried this one and loved it so much! The words ‘reduce pores’ and ‘mattifies skin’ really always catch my attention and this is what it did for my skin. I found that afterwards my skin felt really relaxed and hydrated but without being oily, and almost gave my skin a filter effect over it. It also did really help out with my skin under makeup, I really noticed how much it controlled my oil after I used a different mask that threw my skin out of balance, I used this one and it made my skin have a healthy glow all day without getting too shiny. I 100% will be repurchasing this mask from now on.

For Dry or Sensitive skin

The last mask I tried was the pink packaged one and contains:

  • Rehydrate skin
  • Improve skin comfort
  • Soothe skin

It contains Chamomile, Hyaluronic acid, and a hydrating serum.

This mask surprised me, it doesn’t specifically target any major issues I have with my skin but it’s left it feeling really smooth, and comfortable. My skin looks a lot more even which is probably due to it soothing any redness I have. I often have to use acne products that are on the harsher side and I feel that this mask would be ideal to use whenever I need to just give my skin some hydration and loving to stop it from getting too worn out. I would recommend this for people who just need a nice hydrating mask to pamper themselves with, or for people with dry/irritated skin. Much like the blue mask.

 

These masks overall are totally worth the affordable price, and I think that they do individually deal with different skin issues and types so whatever your situation, I believe with one of these masks you’ll at least see an improvement. I’m definitely going to keep repurchasing and if I can get my hands on the other masks in the collection then I will most definitely do a part two! Let me know if there’s anything else you want to know about them, and always feel free to drop suggestions in the comments. I reply to all!

 

Feeling smooth! Chatterkiwi x
