Review | Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask

Tissue masks are so popular at the moment but ask me a year ago what a tissue mask was and I would not have been able to tell you. I first saw tissue masks in Sephora and I really wanted to try one but each store I went to had completely sold out of them all, which goes to show how popular they are. I forgot all about them until recently when I went into Boots and saw that Garnier have brought out a new skincare range which included, yep, you guessed it, a tissue mask. The best bit? They are £1.49 each! 

About the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask:
"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.
Is Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask right for me? Yes, if your skin is dehydrated, shows the effects of time and your lifestyle (dullness, irregularities, fine lines...), and if you are looking for an effective solution to rehydrate and revitalise the radiance of your skin. In 15 minutes: Skin is intensely rehydrated, Skin looks smoother, Complexion is radiant. Fine lines appear reduced, Skin looks plumper, Skin radiance is revitalised."

I really love the idea of tissue masks, you unfold them, line them up against your face then sit back, relax and let them work their magic. I was so excited to try the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask as I've never used one before and as everyone loves them so much, I thought I would do too. I followed the instructions on the back of the mask packaging which tells you to apply the mask to a cleansed and dry face before carefully unwrapping the one-size-fits-all mask, applying the white side of the mask on your face before peeling the blue protective layer off, smoothing the mask down then allowing 15 minutes for it to fully re-hydrate your skin. 

The first thing that struck me when I tore open the packaging was how big this mask is. Obviously it's one-size-fits-all but wow, is it big. I don't have a particularly small face but because the mask is so large, I found it quite tricky trying to align the mask to the contours of the face, so much so that I kept putting it on then peeling it off again as I just could not find a comfortable enough fit. In the end I decided to just stick with it so my left eye was completely covered by the mask but hey, that's okay. 

Other than awkward application, I must mention the texture and the feel of this mask. I didn't know what I was expecting the mask to feel like but it is very wet. Very wet. Verging on slimy. It's strange, I haven't felt anything like it! Once I had shuddered at the texture, applied it rather cack-handedly and battled with the protective layer which is also supposed to be pulled off, I tried to find the relaxation within the mask. I tried to relax with it on but I didn't find it at all relaxing and I couldn't wait for it to come off. It just felt so...wet! I was very aware that it was on and whilst it wasn't uncomfortable or tight on the face, the wet, cooling feeling set me on edge. I kept it on for the desired time then happily peeled it off before rubbing in the excess moisture from the mask into the skin then splashing my face with a bit of warm water. 

 Do you want to know the best part? It works. The mask actually works - pretty much instantly. My skin felt so soft and so much more hydrated after just 15 minutes on the skin. My cheeks get really dry at times and after using the mask I found that those patches were much more hydrated than before which shows that the mask does do everything it claims to. The next morning my skin was even softer than the night before and it looked much fresher and more revitalised. 

Whilst I don't particularly like the feeling of the tissue mask and found the application tricky, I absolutely loved the results the mask gave after just 15 minutes on the skin. I would definitely use the Garnier Moisture Bomb Tissue Masks again and I'm hoping next time I will get used to the slimy feeling on the face and find the whole process a little more relaxing!

  8. Sounds interesting. I wonder if they sell it in the US.


  9. I used this two nights ago and have had a serious allergic reaction. It's literally burnt a few layers of my skin off. My face is swollen and my eyes are sunken holes. My skin is rough and snakeskin like, peeling off, red, blotchy, burning and sore-very, very sore. Really not sure if I should be going to a doctor =/

    1. I've used this mask many times, but I've just had a massive reaction to it. My face (especially my forehead) has gone super red with blotches all over my cheeks. And it burns. Like my face is glowing hot right now. I've taken an antihistamine so I'm hoping that helps, but the pain is just starting to set in. I'm not looking forward to the next couple of days.

    2. I have just experienced the same. my skin is tight, painful and extremely inflamed.

  10. I just used one for the first time today, I left it on for a little while longer and rubbed all the left over serum on my face and then rinsed my face once after a few minutes, my skin looks soo good. I had a few dry areas around my nose and this did the trick of moisturising those areas. I love this!

  11. Charlotte Beasley - I have had the exact same reaction.. 2 weeks later I still have a very rough skin on my nose, snake like - that isnt clearing up and a msssive red blotch on my cheek below my eye where it has clearly burned my skin or something. I am so disappointed, I have ruined my skin - Its sore, red, blotchy and looks terrible and nothing i do is helping it :( :(

  12. Garnier have advised that I call their helpline after I sent them pictures of my skin - Not that they will be able to do anything now, my skin is ruined! Going to see a skin clinic this week to see if there is anything i can do to fix this :(

  13. Hi! My mother applied this face mask to her face last Friday and had a severe allergic reaction to the toxic chemicals in this mask. She has had to see 3 doctors for antihistamines, antibiotics and steroids over the past week and is only starting to heal now (7 days later). We found out this product ranks an 8/10 in toxicity - unacceptable and should NOT be sold/worn. Will no longer support Garnier.

  14. I have just used this product and I too have had a severe reaction - this is unbelievable this product has not been pulled.
