Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Treatment Mask

For the last few year I have seen read blogs and seen videos featuring sheet masks. They are not very easily found in North America, but they seem to be huge in Asia. So when Garnier came out with their new Skin Renew Dark Spot Treatment Mask I was all over it!

I got mine at Shoppers Drug Mart. The price was around $20.00 for a box of six or $3.99 individually. I didn't want to splurge on the whole box until I tried them out, so I just picked up two individual masks.

The Claims

This product is said to help with dark spots (hence the name), dullness and uneven skin tone. It is supposed to be loaded with vitamin C and keep your skin intensely hydrated for 24 hours.

My Experience.

The masks themselves are VERY saturated with product- which is amazing. There is actually supposed to be half a bottle worth of product in each mask! I applied it on freshly cleansed skin and kept it on for about 15-20 minutes (the package suggests 10). After, the mask is not completely dry, but you can definately tell lots has been absorbed into the skin. I then simply massaged the remaining product into my skin. I even used the remainder on the sheet and rubbed it on the top of my hands!

My Results

My skin was VERY moisturized, plump and smooth afterwards. I've tried using the masks both at night before bed and in the morning before makeup. I like both ways, but I found I loved the way my makeup applied after using the mask. My skin felt and looked very plump and moisturized.

Final Verdict

I would definitely repurchase these masks again! Although, I do find them a wee bit pricey. The directions suggest using up to 3 times a week, but I think that might be a little too expensive. I think I will incorporate this into a once-a-week (maybe Sundays) beauty night.

Have you tried Garnier's new sheet masks? What about any other brands of sheet masks?

Lots of love,

xxx Jess
