Exciting news beauty lovers, if you’ve been hoarding those convenient packs of asian sheet masks, I’m excited to report that a western drugstore version is now in stores across the country. While certain elusive and high end brands have offered sheet masks here and there, I do believe this is the first time a big drugstore name has entered this well loved category. So here they are, the Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Treatment Masks.
Product: Skin Renew Dark Spot Treatment Mask
Size: 6 masks/package, 19ml fluid each
Availability: Drugstores nationwide
Would I repurchase: Undecided
I happened upon this Garnier mask completely by accident. Even before the boxes officially hit the shelves, I noticed single packages marked down at the clearance aisle at a local drugstore and for $1.50CAD each, I thought they deserved a trial.
Ingredients: Aqua/Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract, Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Sodium Citrate, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Tetrasodium Edta, Citric Acid, Citrus Medica Limonum Extract/ Lemon Fruit Extract, Xanthan Gum, Scutellaria Baicalensis Extract/ Scutell Aria Baicalensis Root Extract, Imida Zolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Linalool, Limonene, Benzyl Salicylate, Parfum / Fragrance.
I loved the lightweight feel and immediate radiance boost. This would be a perfect quick pick me up boost before a big event when you just want a little something extra for your skin and now that I’m writing this, it popped into my mind that it could be amazing paired with the Clarins Beauty Flash Balm. My only reservations about these however is the price which is much higher (at regular retail) than what I would normally pay especially considering I have access to asian sheet masks which perform nearly identically for much cheaper. Also note that Garnier recommends a 3 times per week treatment period for maximum effectiveness which means you’re going to go through a package in 2 weeks. With that being said, if you have the budget to keep these in your regular routine or can catch it on discount, it’s worth keeping a few in your drawers.
