RCubed Reviews – Garnier Fructis 1 Minute Hair Mask

Last month, I received a VoxBox from Influenster for their campaign with Garnier. It contained one of their latest products, the 1 Minute Hair Mask. There are 5 versions of this mask, each one made to target a specific hair type/issue.



Some facts to know about these masks:

  • Ingredients are 98% naturally derived
  • Vegan formula
  • Contains no silicones, parabens, or artificial colorants


The mask can also be used three ways:

  1. Hair mask – Apply to wet hair. Leave on for 1 minute, then rinse.
  2. Conditioner – Apply from root to tip after shampooing, then rinse.
  3. Leave-in treatment – Apply to damp hair for added moisture and frizz control.

I received the Smoothing Treat mask with avocado extract to test out. Avocado doesn’t have a distinctive scent, but it did remind me a little of banana. As for use, I opted for the first option since I already use a leave-in conditioner for detangling/styling. The ends of my hair tend to get dry as I grow it out and as a result of having it chemically straightened. This actually made them feel softer and more manageable. I eventually saw a display of them at a local Target and smelled them (because I was curious, of course :P). Unfortunately the one for colored hair (with Goji extract) wasn’t available. I did love the scent of the damage repairing with papaya extract, so I purchased that for future use. I will try to track down that last one. Overall, I think this is a great product. The price is reasonable (Around $3.50 USD), and the 3.4 ounce container can last for a while depending on how much you use. 13.5 ounce containers areĀ  also available for around $7.50.
