Today’s review is about a pampering sheet mask which is targeted for normal to mixed skin type. So, here is the review of “Garnier SkinActive Hydra Bomb Tissue Mask – Lavender”. I have tried few other masks from Garnier and felt that the results didn’t last long. Let’s see how this performs.
Garnier’s new generation of tissue mask, inspired from Asia acts like a burst of hydration for your skin. A true innovation, the tissue mask is infused with an intense de-tiring formula enriched with lavender essential oil and hyaluronic acid, a powerful hydrating active capable of retaining 1000x its weight in water. Once applied on the face, it diffuses it’s de-tiring and hydrating benefits onto the skin. Its gentle fragrance relaxes the senses for a moment of pleasure and wellbeing. Ideal for use in the evening.
Directions for Use:
1. Unfold the mask. Carefully apply the white tissue side to clean skin. the protective blue film should be visible on the outside.
2. Peel off the protective blue film.
3. Adjust the mask to the contours of your face. Leave on for 15 minutes. The mask will stay in place perfectly so you can move around as you like.
4. Remove the mask. Eliminate any remaining excess by gently massaging with the fingertips or using a cotton pad.

My Experience with Garnier SkinActive Hydra Bomb Tissue Mask – Lavender:
Let’s talk about the benefits of Lavender first. Lavender reduces anxiety and stress. It also helps to heal breakouts and reduces acne. Not to forget the antioxidant benefits.
The Garnier SkinActive Hydra Bomb Tissue Mask comes in a relatively big packaging. The packaging is really good, well-sealed and protected. The mask inside has 2 layers; one white and one blue. They both are attached to each other. The mask feels very slimy and wet. I was kind of worried when I pulled out the mask from the packet that it might tear-off. But no, it came out in one piece and was sturdy.
The instructions for use are mentioned on the backside of the packaging and is good enough to follow. The white sheet and blue sheet are aligned to each other and are sticked together. One has to apply it together with blue sheet on top. The blue sheet is to help place the white tissue in place and adjust around the creases. Once the mask is in place, you can peel off the blue layer. So, with this, only the soft white mask is on face. The blue sheet is little hard and I prefer to remove it as soon as I apply the mask.
The mask feels quite cold especially during winter months. It would be best to use on any warm day. It feels very soothing and relaxing on the skin.
The mask was large enough to cover my face and at some places it was more than enough. So, it will fit all kinds and shapes of faces. The mask stings a little for initial few minutes, but it settles down after a while. It is recommended to leave the mask for 15 minutes. But, I left mine for 30 minutes because, the mask felt very moist even after 15 minutes and I wanted my skin to absorb as much as possible. I hate wasting the product.
The mask sticks very well and one can walk around with the mask on. There is no worry of it falling off. Even after 30 minutes, there was a lot of serum left in the mask. I removed the mask and left the wet serum that is sticking to my face to dry by itself.
My face looked clearer than it normally is and my scars looked lighter. My pores also reduced in size. But, my skin felt very sticky. I prefer to use it in the evening before going to bed. I also prefer not to wash my face and sleep over it, so that my skin gets the best benefits of the serum.
All these results lasted for 2 days or so and not more. But, I am sure that the serum mask is better than using nothing. Also, the product is not so expensive and it’s worth the money. I feel that one should use this, especially before you have a big day ahead. Thankfully, it did not cause any skin irritation or breakout to my sensitive skin. Overall, it was fun using this mask and the results were pretty good.
