The 99p moisture restoring facial 

Okay, so last week I took the Friday off work to have a pamper day to myself. I struggle to find time just for myself – I’m either working, visiting family and friends or my boyfriend is with me, so it’s rare that I actually get some me time. 

I’d taken the day off and scheduled in a microdermabrasion facial and a back, neck and shoulder massage and couldn’t wait to get some chill time. Now imagine my disappointment when the salon had messed up my appointment – not only the date but also the time. Oh and they didn’t note my phone number down correctly either so couldn’t contact me to confirm the timings like they said they would do a few days before. 

As angry as I was, I really didn’t want to waste my day off. I’d purposely booked the appointments for 1pm so I could have a nice lay in – a luxury that I rarely get – so there wasn’t much time to find a substitute. 

After calling around I managed to find a salon that could squeeze me in for a back,neck and shoulder massage luckily but unfortunately they couldn’t fit me in for a facial too. 

I ended up taking a little trip around the shopping centre and looking at the offers that Boots had on at the moment which is when I stumbled upon this 99p mousturing mask by Garnier. 

Now, I’m fully aware that this doesn’t come anywhere close to having a facial which is tailored to your skin type but I was curious as to how good this could be for such a small price. 

So I got home, put on some relaxing acoustic music to take me back to the chilled vibe in Ibiza earlier this year and blocked out the suggested 15 minutes to let this mask do it’s magic. 

What’s the verdict? 

Upon first try, this mask definitely delivered. It’s a very thin mask made of tissue so can be hard to apply but once it’s on it’s great. 

It smells absolutely amazing and is soaked in moisturing lotion with pomegranate extract so it sinks straight into your skin. Garnier recommend using this mask once a week for maximum results and it’s definitely something that I’ll now be bringing into my skincare regime going forward. 

Give it a try and let me know what you think.
