Garnier Skincare Review

Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask

The Moisture bomb tissue mask promises one week of hydration in just 15 minutes and it includes ‘anti thirst’ technology. Soaked in a serum which includes hyaluronic acid, plant serum and naturally-derived ingredients including the infusion of pomegranate, the mask is a quick fix for your skin after a long week of wearing makeup.

Perfect if your skin is in need of pampering, the sheet mask is suited to all skin types and feels extremely refreshing on your face.

The tissue mask is ideal for those that are travelling or those looking for a post party treatment as it requires minimal effort and it is great if you are on the go.

I found the product a little fiddly and awkward to apply as it is a large mask. The one-size-fits-all shape was too big for my face and I found it difficult to smooth the mask down in the right places. The serum is sticky and almost feels slimy, however on application it felt cold, comforting and smelt lovely.

After wearing the mask for 15 minutes my skin was glowing! I was surprised at how instantly I could see and feel the effects of the mask. My skin felt smooth, soft, and it definitely felt hydrated and revitalised. Even when I woke up the next morning I was still feeling the effects of the tissue mask including plumped, radiant, and youthful looking skin.

There is no doubt that this mask does exactly what is says on the packet and did in fact leave my skin feeling refreshed. However, although I enjoyed using this product I do think for those that have oily or combination skin like myself it should be used once a fortnight rather than weekly as I think it doesn’t help those oily sections of the skin.

Micellar Cleansing Water

Micellar water is a popular product and many have rated it over standard cleansers and makeup removers. The formula is made up of tiny micelles that remove dirt and lift impurities to leave your skin feeling and looking clean and product free.

I ditched makeup wipes a year ago and chose to use gentle cleansers and micellar water based products to remove my makeup. I have used Nivea and Simple cleansers but found the Garnier micellar water for combination skin my favourite.

The bottle is 400ml and Garnier claims you can get 200 uses out of it, obviously this depends what products you have on your skin and how much makeup you are wearing. I do find that my bottle does last quite a long time and you only need to use a small amount to successfully cleanse your skin.

A simple and effective treatment it takes only minutes to pour some on a cotton pad and cleanse your face. The water prevents blocked pores and removes excess oils without stripping the skin of the natural oils it produces.

For me micellar water is a better alternative to makeup wipes as it is gentle and unscented. It requires little effort and overall it cleanses quickly and effectively alongside leaving your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated.

As previously mentioned I suffer with combination skin so I am always on the lookout for a daily moisturiser that can hydrate my skin effectively but not leave it looking greasy and shiny.

Moisture Match Daily Moisturiser

Garnier has launched the moisture match range of moisturises to suit all skin types. The range includes 5 different moisturisers aimed at people with normal, dry, very dry, dull and oily skin. I purchased the oil-free moisturiser which promises to give your skin 24h hydration and shiny control.

On opening the product I wasn’t expecting miracles but I can honestly say that I was really surprised with this product. Enriched with green tea extract the moisturiser absorbs into your skin quickly and instantly mattifies without leaving your skin dry as a result. The formula is a whipped consistency that feels fresh and cooling on the skin.

The only criticism I have is that I wouldn’t recommend using it as a night moisturiser. I don’t think it is hydrating enough to last a whole night and that’s why I would only use this as a day cream.

Overall my skin feels smooth and soft, the product is a nice and light consistency and the texture actually makes it a great primer for makeup. It has a long-lasting matte effect and doesn’t leave skin looking oily. It leaves you with a natural shine and healthy glow and it is moisturiser I will definitely purchase again!

All products can be purchased from Boots.
