The product

Summer, with all its sunny beach days and (sometimes boozy!) evening outings, can unfortunately leave skin looking dull and dehydrated. That’s why, following the festive season, many of us are reaching for products that will pep up or restore hydration to our skin. And one of the best ways to treat your skin to the nutrients its currently lacking quick-smart is with face masks like these new Fresh-Mix Tissue Masks from Garnier.

Each package includes a separately-enclosed dry algae tissue mask and a concentrated serum shot that you simply mix together when you’re ready for a masking session. There are two masks to choose from: one for brightening and one for hydrating.

The Garnier Fresh-Mix Tissue Mask with Vitamin C Shot contains a vitamin C-enriched serum that works to energise and illuminate your skin. For those with thirsty skin that’s craving hydration, the Garnier Fresh-Mix Tissue Mask with Hyaluron Shot is formulated with a potent hyaluronic acid serum that hydrates, plumps and reduces fine lines.

Our panel of Review Crew® testers put these products to the test.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent the Garnier Fresh-Mix Tissue Mask with Vitamin C Shot and Garnier Fresh-Mix Tissue Mask with Hyaluron Shot to a panel of women aged between 18 and 35 who were searching for masks to energise and hydrate their skin.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about the Garnier Fresh-Mix Tissue Mask with Vitamin C Shot and Garnier Fresh-Mix Tissue Mask with Hyaluron Shot.

How the Hyaluron Shot mask left skin feeling: Members loved how the concentrated hyaluronic acid serum left their skin ultra-hydrated and plump. They also liked that a generous amount of serum was supplied, which meant they could massage the excess into their neck and décolletage.

How the Vitamin C Shot mask left skin looking: Members commented on how luminous and glowing this mask left their skin after just 15 minutes. Reviewers were amazed by how quickly the masks delivered visible results.

How fun the masks were to use: The review team praised not just the physical results these masks delivered, but also how enjoyable they were to use. They liked the DIY nature of the masks and said that mixing them added a fun, theatrical element to the experience.

The verdict

“I loved this product due to the fact that the serum and mask were separated and then mixed only when you wanted to use the product. I have been waiting for a company to come out with something like this for years. My skin was radiant straight after the mask was applied and looked plump and glowy - #win!”

“This product was amazing to mix, open, put on and remove. I enjoyed the whole experience of using this mask. Garnier are geniuses! I instantly noticed a difference. My skin felt plump, hydrated and smooth, which is exactly what I needed for my skin after a beach holiday that left skin quite dry. And a week later my skin is still glowing! This is a winner and overall, I loved everything about the mask. I recommend it 100% and will definitely buy again.”

“I used this mask when my face was at its dullest. After 15 minutes, I was surprised to see it has actually brightened up my face! My husband even noticed that my face had a glow to it! I would recommend this mask for those who want to get some colour, glow, and hydration back in their skin in 15 minutes!”
