Garnier Skin Active Volcano Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier‘s Skin Active Volcano Mask with volcanic rock and clay.

This is a self-heating face mask that promises to give skin a deep cleanse to make it look smoother and less shiny. It also claims to make pores less visible.

How’s the product? I’m not impressed. The self-heating effect is negligible, and I didn’t see any results. My skin didn’t feel or look cleaner, and my pores looked just liked they did before.

My husband tried this mask too. He said using this mask was a waste of time. I agree! If you’re looking for a good self-heating mask, try Montagne Jeunesse!

Garnier‘s Skin Active Volcano Mask is available as 8ml. I paid £1 (Poundland).

Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier’s Skin Active Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask with pomegranate extract, hyaluronic acid and plant serum. This mask promises intensely rehydrated skin that looks smoother and more radiant – in 15 minutes. Now let me tell you if this mask is any good. 🙂

At first I need to say that this tissue mask doesn’t fit my perfectly average-shaped face. The mask looks like it was made for people with round faces and long chins. However, I have to say that Garnier’s tissue mask doesn’t fit anywhere near as poorly as Boots’ Luminous Youth sheet mask.

Anyway, let’s look at what the mask did for me! I left the mask on for more than 15 minutes – I think I left it on for about 45 minutes (give or take a few minutes). The mask felt cool and refreshing – but it also felt quite tacky. I didn’t notice any issues (no stinging or burning), so that’s definitely a good thing. 🙂 But when I removed the mask, I was disappointed. My complexion looked incredibly dull and my skin didn’t feel hydrated at all. I would say that, despite the superficial tackiness, my skin felt dry and tight underneath.

Since I didn’t get any benefits from this mask, I won’t buy it again. I have another Moisture Bomb tissue mask – but I’ll give that one away. If you’d like to try this product… Garnier’s Skin Active Moisture Bomb Tissue Mask is available for £1.49. I paid 99p (special offer).
