Review :: Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Treatment Mask

Hiya everyone~

~*~*~ Just going to do a super quickie review of a sheet mask today!! ^^

I have to admit that I haven't really seen many American face masks in the form of a sheet. I'm not sure if that's just where I live... or I just don't look hard enough... but I've only seen clay masks and etc. so I was really surprised when I saw that Garnier had come out with a sheet mask.

I was also excited of course because I've only tried Asian sheet masks so I quickly picked myself up one of these Garnier sheet masks from Wal-Mart! XD

Product Information

     Description: Skin Renew introduces Dark Spot Treatment Mask, a 10-minute gentle facial mask with Vitamin C that leaves skin intensely hydrated for 24 hours and brightens for a smoother-looking, radiant skin that feels refreshed and revitalized. This translucent tissue mask with breakthrough stretch-to-fit technology acts as a "second skin" providing smoother and better adherence to the natural contours of the face for maximum comfort and effectiveness.
     Directions: Cleanse and dry face. Gently place mask on face and adjust around eyes, nose and mouth. After 10 minutes, remove mask and massage remaining product into skin.
     Capacity: 19ml

So... in terms of comfort and how relaxing/ how much I enjoyed this mask, I thought it was really great. I was only supposed to leave it on for 10 minutes, but I really like how nice it felt on my skin. Totally revitalizing and refreshing. The vitamin C was not stingy and my skin loved it. I think I left it on for 30 minutes? I have no idea. I lost track of time playing on the PS3. >.<

Needless to say there wasn't much to massage in by the time I took it off. LOL 

It's definitely not one of those annoying drippy masks either. It has just enough essence in it to last about 15-20 minutes.

In terms of results.... I don't know. I think that whole "dark spot" thing is a scam LOL. Note that the above pictures reads "For optimal results on dark spots, use together with Skin Renew Clinical Dark Spots and Dark Spot Overnight Peel."

Maybe I'm just cynical, but reading that to me means that it's not going to work, just a really smart way to advertise and sucker consumers to buy all of the other products in the series before they realize that the results aren't that great. 

The hydration part of the mask was mediocre. I mean it was was definitely there, but compared with any line of Asian masks that promises hydration, Garnier's mask definitely falls short. It's not that hydrating at all. Same with the results for skin brightening. And the effects on dark spots are of course, non-existent. 

I think the thing I was most excited to try out was the "second skin" stretch-to-fit cotton mask itself. It didn't really turn out the way I was expecting.

What I expected was a small mask sheet that you can easily stretch bigger to fit your face shape properly.

What I actually got was a really good quality mask sheet that is durable so you can gently tug at it without fear of breaking it. I mean the quality of the cotton was amazing, and it was very soft and comfortable on my face, but it really doesn't stretch all that much so don't expect anything more than that. 

Mask Fit:

Final Verdict: I think this is a nice mask if you just want to put something cooling on your face and relax after a long day, but if results is what you're specifically looking for, skip this one.

Thanks For Reading!!

Stay Lovely,
Aria. =^-^=
