Today I would like to share with you one of my all time favorite face mask. It’s the Garnier Lightening Peel Off Mask. I discovered this mask about 3-4 years ago at the beauty display at Giant Supermarket. I bought it because I was attracted by its claim that says “instantly illuminate complexion.”
One of my biggest skin problem since I came back to Indonesia was dull complexion. I believe that I was not the only one who has this issue. It’s because the pollution rate in Indonesia was quite high. Plus, the hot and humid weather were not helpful either. It caused big pores which led to other skin issues such as oily skin, pimples, dull skin, acne, black heads and many more problems. I used to have a clean and clear skin back when I was still leaving in Melbourne. I only got pimples when I got my period. Therefore, Garnier got me.
Garnier Light Complete Whitening Peel Off Mask is a facial masked by Garnier that is created to brighten up your skin. They called it as the “Anti Dull Skin” solution. The peel-off functions to remove dead cells that darken complexion and dirt from the face. Mean while, the lemon essence functions to brighten up the complexion from the inside.
There are so many beauty benefits of lemon. It can be used to treat our many skin issues from head to toe. If you search online, there are many DIY Lemon Remedies, such as Lemon Scrub, Lemon Mask, Lemon Peel-Off Mask, and more. It proves that Lemon is really useful to help with our skin issues. Nevertheless, since our topic is about Garnier Peel-Off Mask, I will focus our discussion of Benefit of Lemon for face skin or complexion only, which are:
- Clarifying Skin – lemons lighten dark spots and blemishes
- Blackhead Treatment – lemons contain antibacterial property which is helpful to treat acne
- Skin Brightener – lemons are rich in vitamin C and citric acid.
- Preventing Premature Age – the Vitamin C in lemon is a great antioxidant for neutralizing free radicals and boosting collagen productions.
- Shine Eliminator – lemons are great for reducing excess oil
As you can see from the picture, the masker is colored yellow just like Lemon Skin. It has a nice refreshing lemon-ish smell. The texture is a little bit sticky. It takes time to dry, well of course, otherwise it will be hard to apply. Once applied, it has a cooling sensation that calms the stressed skin down. At the end, your skin will looks glow-y and feels bouncy.
How To Use
On the back of the of the packaging, they include some instructions which I will re-type it here:
- Clean your face properly
- Pat dry your face
- Apply toner to make sure that there is no residue left
- Apply the mask in a thin and even layer
- Leave for approximately 15 minutes until the mask has completely dried
- Slowly peel the mask off starting from the bottom of your face
- Rinse your face with warm water to remove any residue
It is suggested to use this mask 2x per-week for maximum result.
From my personal experience, after a week, I can see that my skin condition has improved. The first thing that you will notice is your skin looks brighter and healthier, because the peel-off removed dead skin and black head from your face. As for the acne, the result is not instant. It takes time before your acne heals and can see some of your acne scars gone. Also, I notice that my skin is not as oily when I use this mask regularly. Think I need to use it regularly again like before, because I stopped using it for a while last year. Let says it as my skin new year resolution! Hahaha…
The Store & The Price
I think it is only available in South East Asia, because I cannot find it on Garnier USA website. In Indonesia, you can pick it up online at Lazada, and offline at the Garnier official retails at Watson Indonesia, Guardian, beauty counters at Supermarket like Giant, Hero, Carrefour and minimart like Alfa & Indomart.
It costs about IDR 15,000.-
*Pricing is subject to change from time to time.
