Review: Garnier moisture bomb tissue mask

I wanted to do a review on this product because I was really excited to try it out but honestly I found it to be kind of a flop. I’ve used it three times now and each time it’s been pretty disappointing.

The mask is advertised as adding moisture to your skin, and it’s also meant to reduce the appearance of fine lines. As I don’t have fine lines I mainly got it for hydrating purposes also I wanted to try more sheet masks without having to wait for them to be shipped from Korea so you can see why I was excited when I saw this in my local Superdrug for £1. Each pack contains one mask, when you open it up the first thing you realise is that it is very wet, as there is a lot of product on the mask. You then peel the blue sheet off and then place it on your face.

Putting on the mask is quite difficult. I found that while they included ear flaps they weren’t big enough to fit my ears (even though mine aren’t that big) and instead they would snap, it also slides around a bit which is due to the fact that there is so much product absorbed in the sheet mask but once it’s on my face it doesn’t move around.

Another problem I have with the mask is that it stings, there’s a slight stinging feeling on my cheeks, also near my nose when I first tried it I just ignored it thinking it was just my skin being sensitive but now that I look at the ingredients list I realise that actually it’s really not that great (for me anyway). Below I pasted the ingredient lists and here is the cosdna for it.

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

As you can see it contains Alcohol, Limonene, fragrance and witch hazel. I’m not the biggest fan of witch hazel and it tends to dry my skin out to be honest so I try and avoid it, it also contains limonene, fragrance and alcohol all things that just don’t work with my skin which is probably why I didn’t like it.

After taking the mask of my skin feels pretty dry, there really isn’t much difference to my skin compared to how my skin was before applying it to my face. I also found that I got small bumps on my face the day after. All in all this mask was really just not for me, from the ingredients to the application I didn’t like it but it’s only £1, has quite a lot of product and it’s probably much more suited for people with less sensitive skin than mine.

My rating:

Overall score: 1/5
Would I repurchase: No
