Masks Customised to Better Fit Your Face’s Contours- Garnier’s Second Skin Masks

**Sponsored ReviewHello Everyone!!  It’s the first day of the long weekend…
What are your plans? 🙂

For me, i’ll be spending the 3 days to catch up on my blog entries, going to church and spending time with my loved ones..
Of course, i will also allocate more time to catch up on my sleep (Recently, i have been having insomnia!)
Because of this, the condition of my skin has gone downhill and it has become so dull, sensitive and lifeless.  

Went for Facial yesterday and i’m so glad that my skin looks so much brighter..
Right now, i will need to make sure that i do my mask regularly (Which i have not been doing) in order to keep skin in tip top condition… 

Few weeks ago, Garnier has sent me its latest mask for review – Second Skin Mask.. 

There are two kinds of mask under this latest range and they are the Light and Aqua Defense (for whitening and hydrating skin respectively). The Second Skin Mask is produced using  an innovative technology that allows the mask to fit and stay on all curves of the face perfectly, so no adjustments of the mask will be needed after application…

GarnierLightSecondSkinMask-1

Why is it known as the Second Skin Mask? 

Simply because the mask will adhere to facial contour perfectly as it uses innovative quality fitting tissue which is designed specially to fit Asian. This allows the mask to stay on all curves of the face perfectly and there’s no need to repeatedly adjust the mask while masking. The second skin mask will be suitable for all skin types as only natural ingredients that are gentle yet potent on the skin are used. These micro nutrients soaked in the mask will penetrate into the all parts of the skin giving the user a flawless, illuminated complexion in just 10 minutes.

Aqua Defense Hydrating Glowing Essence Second Skin Mask 

If you have dry flaky skin which needs major hydrating boost, the Aqua Defense Hydrating Glowing Essence Second Skin Mask will help replenish all the moisture loss and protects it from any harmful factors.

Especially for working adults, our skin will be constantly exposed to external aggressions like staying in an air-conditioned room for long hours.. This kind of harmful exposure might even continue at home while we sleep (if you are sleeping in an air-conditioned room at night) . 

Aqua Defense Mask is formulated to highly nourish the skin with Tanggula Glacier Water, White Tea, Green Tea Extracts and Vitamin E. Tanggula Glacier Water is obtained from 5000m high Tanggula Glacier and it run untouched water loaded with natural minerals that are known to help retain natural moisture in skin. Combined together with the special and powerful blend of anti-oxidants (Vitamin E, white tea and green tea), it forms a protective layer to guard skin from aggressions.


Light Intensive 3 in 1 Whitening Essence Second Skin Mask 

If you have dull skin concern and want brighter skin, Garnier’s Light Intensive 3 in 1 Whitening Essence Second Skin Mask will help whiten and even out skin tone..
 

This mask contains the combination power of three fast-working natural extracts which visibly unveils amazingly fair and radiant skin and leaving it supple and revitalised.
 
1) Scutellaria Extract minimizes melanin production which eventually lightens the skin tone as Melanin is the primary determinant of skin colour. Hence, by slowdown of its production, it will lighten skin tone significantly.
 
2) Pure lemon essence works together with Scuterllaria extract as it acts as an active whitening agent which help remove dead cell for an even and refined skin texture. 
 
3) Tanggula Glacier water (Common ingredient as the Aqua Mask) helps retain water inside the skin. From the mountain range in the central region of Tibetan plateau, this ingredient comes from refreshing, cold untouched glacier waters stocked up at peaks higher than 5000m above sea water. It is rich in Natural Moisturizing Factor, Potassium, Calcium and water which helps with skin renewal and supply needed nutrients deep beneath the skin. Overtime, Skin renewal is stimulated, revealing a fairer, more radiant glow.


My Verdict

Since it is approaching the time of the month, my skin seems more sensitive so i guess hydration and enhancing protection against harmful external source will be useful… So i’ll be reviewing the Aqua Defense mask in this post..


The material of the mask feels so soft and smooth on my skin.. The thin translucent sheet feels weightless after i have put it onto my face. Normally, i will face issue with 100% coverage of mask on my nose area (I have a non-existence nose to begin with) but this mask covers my entire face perfectly.. No trapped air bubbles are observed so it means the mask lies closely fitted to my skin..  Also, the mask stays fitted on my face so no re-adjustments are needed.

After applying the Aqua Defense mask, my skin seems less red which means sensitivity is reduced.. Applied the mask in the morning before heading out and at the end of the day, skin is less oily (This shows that my skin is more hydrated which reduces the amount of sebum secretion).

If you are interested in trying out these mask, it can be found in Watsons, Guardians, major supermarkets and hypermarkets and selected departmental stores at a promotional price of S$2 per sheet in July.  Boxes of 5 sheets will be launched in August and are priced at S$21.90.

(Event and Sponsored Review) Roll Roll your pimples away with Garnier 2 in 1 Tinted Pimples Roll on

Attended Garnier’s event last week and many thanks to Dale for the kind invitation..

Event is held at ‘Once Upon a Milk Shake’ located at Maxwell Chambers..

OUAM offers a wide selection of premium milkshakes at non-premium prices which guarantee to satisfy your sweet cravings..

OUAM has more than 20 variation of milk shakes and each is represented by an unique animated character.. 


Since their milkshakes are produced by blending Ouam’s ice cream and low quality low-fat milk together, everyone can indulge in thick and creamy ice cream milkshakes.Ordered the ‘Spooky Mocha’ and it is really thick and creamy.. Sinful much!!!

If you have not heard of Garnier before, you might seen it in Watson and Guardian etc… Garnier originates from France and the brand focuses on happiness. Garnier believes that everyone have his/her own natural beauty and has the power to make that beauty shine through. As the aim of beauty is happiness and feeling at ease with yourself and others, it is all about taking charge and control. In the same spirit, Garnier also make sure that active natural ingredients are used in every products which perform for the skin’s maximum benefit. 

I have tried some of the products and i’m in love with their Garnier Light Perfect Fit and Relax Whitening Mask.
You can see results with only one sheet as it helps to brighten my dull skin instantly… Best of all, it suits all skin type including those really sensitive ones (like mine).

The launch is about the newly released product – Garnier Pureactive 2 in 1 Tinted Pimples Roll on which fights and conceal pimples at the same time. This product offers an instant and fuss-free solution that covers pimples and blemishes fast with long-lasting treatment effects.

In Singapore’s stressful environment and humid climate, pimple breakouts are inevitable.. Often, we want a product that will hide those nasty looking pimples fast and effective without worsening existing skin condition. Using ordinary make-up and concealer to cover up is a temporary solution that could aggravate the condition.

With that in mind, Garnier (Being the King of roll-on) has introduced, the Garnier 2-in-1 Tinted Pimple Roll-On which conceals current blemishes and pimples conveniently and has an instant drying effect to help protect against spots at the very first sight.

This product aims to provide a solution that both treats and nourishes the skin to keep it free from imperfections. Killing two birds with one stone, the roll-on covers in 1 second, and treats in 24 hours using its HerbaSoothe complex and active drying ingredient which works to soothe and dry pimples in 24 hours.
(Here’s the brand in charge bringing us thru the detailed presentation) 

How this product works?

Firstly, it contains Mineral pigments with high coverage: –The Garnier 2-in-1 Tinted Pimple Roll-On provides an invisible and long lasting coverage which helps to conceal / help for over 12
hours with just one application. Even in today’s hot and humid climate, its thin and light-layered texture stays soothing to the skin. Despite the high concentration of mineral pigments, the roll-on remains non-comedogenic to ensure maximum coverage comes with maximum skin health.

Secondly, it contains HerbaSoothe: – 

One of the most difficult challenges is to leave skin looking healthy and fresh even after an outbreak. In this product, Garnier uses HerbaSoothe, a natural blueberry extract to boost cell regeneration without compromising the quality of skin. The enriched HerbaSoothe and drying agent formula dries out spots quickly and effectively, and accelerates the resorption of residual marks.

As it has a Pocket-sized packaging, the Garnier 2-in-1 Tinted Pimple Roll-On makes the ultimate life-saver when pimples decide to attack your skin suddenly. 

Being light, convenient and easy to use, roll on is all it takes to make blemishes disappear magically in just a second. No oily or mask effect is produced either, allowing the roll-on to provide comfort and convenience at its best.

Did a test on my hand and you can see that the color pigments (on the warm side) seem a little dark on my skin..  After some blending, it became more natural but it is still a tone darker.. If you are fair, i will suggest that you use it under your foundation / base make up in order to neutral the Orangery tone.

Tried it on an angry looking pimple on my chin and i used a concealer brush to even out the product… Concealing power is not as good as my Mac’s concealer but it hid the redness which is my main concern.. Be careful not to apply a thick layer as you will end up with orange patches.. Alternatively if you are fair, you can dust on your foundation / powder to cover it up…

As for the ‘drying strength’ of this product, it does reduce the redness after one application.. On the 3rd day, the angry looking pimple has flatten.. I’m so happy that it works hand in hand with the Mariobadesu drying cream that i am using during night time.. Since the tinted spot roll on contains color pigment, i won’t suggest that you use it at night as it is better to sleep with bare skin…

After using it for a week, i’m so pleased with the product as it can conceal my imperfection without clogging my pores… Results can be seen after doing my weekly peel off deep cleansing mask, there’s so much lesser ‘junks’ being removed by the mask (as compared to amount of dirt removed when i’m using concealer). Will really recommend this product if you wish to hide imperfection without worsening your skin condition.

Price and Availability

Garnier 2-in-1 Tinted Pimple Roll-On retails at $22.90 and it is available at Watsons, Guardians, major supermarkets and hypermarkets and selected departmental stores from May 2012 onwards.

Beside the Tinted Spot roll on, we got to bring home other products as well! 

Products consist of: – 

1) Garnier Men TurboLight Oil Control Ice Matte Gel
2) Garnier Men TurboLight Oil Control Charcoal Black Foam

Of course, these products were passed on to my beloved bf! I don’t mind trying the ice matte gel in Krabi on my sun burnt skin as it is said to have a cooling and soothing effect on skin while keeping it moist.

3) Garnier Clean Sensitive 2 in 1 Gentle Make up Remover
4) Garnier Clean Sensitive Gentle Cleansing Wipes

Saw these products in Watson and i wanted to try the cleansing wipes.. So glad to see it in the goodies bag and i tried it during make-up removal on the same day.. The wipes are really moist and one sheet is enough to remove my make-up (which consists of concealer, BB cream, loose powder and water-proof eye-liner).. It leaves my skin clean and supple without any irritation as every sheet is soft to the touch fragrance free. This cleansing wipes will be good on days when i’m feeling lazy and wants a quick solution to remove all my make-up.

5) Garnier Pure 3-in-1 Wash + Scrub + Mask
6) Garnier Aqua Defense Extra moisturizing gentle essence..

Will review it in due course as i’m so interested in trying the 3-in-one product…
