I’ve always been a fan of sheet masks. They’re a convenient way of pampering yourself at home while relaxing, watching television or reading a book. I’ll let you in a little secret – I always make sure I have more or less 15 different sheets masks in my stash just in case my girl buds decide to hangout for some “girl time”. Just like my eye cream and sun block, I prefer refrigerating my sheet mask 10-15 minutes before using it just makes it even more relaxing when used. Am I really that weird? LOL! Anyway, now that you know  these weird stuff about me, I guess I can now shamelessly share what I think about this new sheet mask I’ve tried – this Garnier Light Intensive 3 in 1 Whitening Essence Mask from my April BDJ Box. And another one from my May BDJ Box. ๐Ÿ™‚

Garnier Light Intensive 3 in 1 Whitening Essence Mask
Glowing Beauty. Reveal radiant and hydrated skin with Garnierโ€™s intensive 3 in 1 whitening essence mask. Its three major contents help lighten skin tone, remove dead cells, refine texture, retain water inside the skin for hydration. Great refresher for tired, dull skin, may be used before makeup! See a blooming, glowing YOU. For best results, use this 2x a week.
Garnier Light Intensive 3 in 1 Whitening Essence Mask contains:
Scutellaria Extract (also known as the โ€œGolden Rootโ€), a Japanese plant extract is known for its whitening properties. It helps lighten the skin by reducing melanin production and also, its antioxidant action combats free radicals from the skin, leaving it looking brighter and fairer. Pure Lemon Essence, the brand’s signature ingredient for its Light product line, a famous citrus essence that helps restore the skinโ€™s radiance with its brightening properties and by removing dead skin cells for an even and refined texture. And lastly, Tanggula Glacier Water, a luxurious aqua ingredient that delivers instant moisture and retains the hydrating power of rich minerals to the skin.
For the record, I’d like to say that for once, I found a mask sheet that fit my small face snugly. Great news for me but this makes me wonder how this would fit those with much bigger face.. Oh well. The sheet mask itself is incredibly thin and almost transparent when worn – not that the sheet is really important. I have to remind myself that it’s the essence/serum that makes the product effective, not the mask per se.
Moving on to the serum, I appreciate the fact that the pack doesn’t contain too much essence. I really hate it when the mask keeps dripping when worn. Plus, they can’t expect our skin to soak in hundreds of milligrams of essence in 30 minutes, right? So I think the amount of product in this sachet is just right, for me at least. Next thing to consider is the consistency of the essence. Garnier Light Intensive 3 in 1 Whitening Essence Mask contains a light, mildly scented, clear essence that’s easily absorbed by the skin causing the mask to almost completely dry out after 20 minutes. 
Anyway, did you know that after removing the sheet, you’re supposed to let the skin absorb the essence for a couple more minutes? I’ve known that from the beginning but since I couldn’t tolerate most of the facial masks I’ve tried before that had thick and heavy essence, I always rinse off the excess – wasting the very thing I actually paid for. But for the first time, I was able to endure it this time because it’s lightweight and non sticky. It only took my skin 3 minutes to fully absorb everything! 
BOO! >:P
I’ve already used up 2 sheets of Garnier Light Intensive 3 in 1 Whitening Essence Mask and so far, I did not notice any skin brightening effect – not even temporary results right after washing. However, I did see that my skin became so much softer and suppler after using the sheet mask. My skin feels so hydrated and it looks refreshed too. I’m not entirely after the skin whitening so the results I’ve got are enough for me. But if you purchased this mainly for its whitening claims, I guess you’d be a bit disappointed to know that 2 sheets didn’t do me any good. But who knows, maybe with continuous use, this could do wonders for the skin. ๐Ÿ™‚
I have a couple of new Garnier product from my May BDJ Box. And I have to say, this Garnier Light Intensive 3 in 1 Whitening Essence Mask made me really excited to try out other products from the brand. I’ve never really tried anything from the brand before but they look promising – especially their roll-on eye cream. ๐Ÿ™‚
