Garnier Hydrating Glowing Essence 2nd Skin Mask [Review]

Garnier is proud to introduce its newly launched Second Skin Mask, comes in 2 types... Light and Aqua Denfense for brighter and healthier skin. Second Skin Mask was designed specifically to suit Asian women's facial features.


Using the  new weightless technology, Garnier Second Skin Mask is a thin translucent sheet that lies closely to the skin, reducing trapped air bubbles.
By being in touch with every part of the face, the serum is absorbed effectively, even on hard to reach areas such as the nose bridge and the sides of the nose.
Soft and smooth, micro nutrients soaked in the mask will penetrate into the skin giving the user a flawless, illuminated complexion in 10 minutes.

In this entry I'm going to do an initial review on the Garnier Hydrating Glowing Essence 2nd Skin Mask.

With the understanding that skin is constantly exposed to external aggressions, such as air-conditioning at the workplace for long hours, Aqua Defense Mask is formulated to generously nourish the skin with its key ingredients- Tanggula Glacier Water, White Tea and Green Tea Extracts. Blended with Vitamin E, these ingredients form an anti-oxidant powerful enough to protect skin from harmful effects from the environment.

With Tanggula Glacier Water, White Tea and Green Tea extract...



Here's my initial review on the Garnier Hydrating Glowing Essence 2nd Skin Mask... (One time use - since mask is temporary relief for different type of skin concerns.)
  • The mask fit nicely on the skin 
  • Cotton tissue type of mask sheet
  • Mask feel cooling on the skin
  • Feel really refreshing and soothing
  • Moisturizing
  • Didn't see any visible improvement on fine lines
  • Pores does look abit less drying
  • Doesn't cause any stingy/burning sensation (GOOD!!!)
  • Didn't cause any irritation nor breaking out during the 20mins of masking
  • Skin feel supple and soft after masking
.
Over all, my complexion look fresh and skin look well hydrated.  (The effect doesn't till next day)
The mask feel soothing, cooling and very moisturizing on the skin.... but the mask sheet between my nose and mouth area start to feel abit dry after 20mins. 15mins should be more then enough.
When mask is dry, it will suck out the moisture from the skin - so to prevent it, PLEASE do not leave mask on the skin for more then 20 mins....  especially using cotton tissue type of mask.
