Monday Mask: Montagne Jeunesse Break Out Mask

Monday, 30 April 2012

I recently received a couple masks from Montagne Jeunesse's new Skin Heroes range to try and this week I got down to trying the Break Out Mask as my skins been a tad "off" of late.

In all honesty I barely use face masks these days, my usual routine just literally consists of a St Ives/Clinique scrub, face wash, toner and moisturiser.. If I get a spot I use a bit of Origins Spot Remover and that's it.

However, I thought I'd give these masks a try as it's been a while and I remember trying Montagne Jeunesse in secondary school (peel off mask).

The Skin Heroes masks range come in two steps mostly - mask and moisturiser.
Break Out Mask
Ingredients: The main ingredients in this mask are Witch Hazel (spot-fighting/calming) Tea-Tree (calming), Canadian Willowherb (soothing)
Colour: Pastel Green
Texture: Slightly thick clay.. hardens slightly when dry so you can't move your facial muscles! When washing off, I felt a warmth on my face when using warm water; not sure if that's good or bad but I finished off with cold water anyway.
Ease: I still prefer peel off masks for ease!
Scent: Very fresh, clay and minty.
Price: For £1.50 it certainly won't break the bank and is worth a try if you're unsure of which of these masks to pick!

Break Out Moisturiser
Ingredients: Again, Tea-Tree & Canadian Willowherb
Colour: White
Texture: Didn't absorb very easily into the skin.. using a little goes a long way cos of this.
Scent: Fresh, minty 
Overall I'd give this mask a 1.5 out of 5. It certainly felt fresh on my skin but I found slight red patches on my dry areas (cheeks), despite this mask being for combination and oily skin. The moisturiser did help calm the redness down a bit but wasn't very easily absorbed.

I look forward to trying the peel off mask, so stay tuned for that!

Have you tried Montagne Jeunesse masks? Which is your favourite?


I'd love for you to leave me some comments.. they make me happy!
