Montagne Jeunesse Skin Heroes #1

Welcome to Part 1 of 5 in my Montagne Jeunesse Skin Heroes series! As mentioned in my previous post, I received the new Skin Heroes range from Montagne Jeunesse to review on my blog. In this post I will be reviewing the Break-Out Mask.

 

The Break-Out Mask is for "problem skin prone to eruptions". I felt like I was getting a few hormonal spots so I thought this mask would be the ideal one to try first.

4 of the 5 products in the Skin Heroes range are masks. They are different from the regular Montagne Jeunesse masks as they contain two stages. The first stage (the bottom of the packet) is a mask and the second stage (the top of the packet) is a moisturiser/serum. I think this is a fab idea as it's always best to apply a moisturiser straight after using a mask so it's good to have one with complementary ingredients to the mask to ensure you get the full treatment for your skin requirements.

Here are the details about the two stages of the Break-Out Mask:

Stage 1 (as stated on the packet)
Firstly, you’ll need to flush out those blocked pores with this mud mask fusion of calming Tea Tree & soothing Canadian Willowherb™. Let Witch Hazel’s natural powers help calm skin.


This is a thick but smooth, light green mask that is easy to apply to the skin. You need to leave it on for about 15 to 20 minutes before washing off. During this time the mask dries out and starts to feel tight on the skin. I like this as it feels like the product is working! The product has a strong tea tree/lavender scent which I find quite refreshing. It definitely smells like there are some good ingredients that will help improve the skin. I love it when products smell more natural rather than chemical/medicinal!


Stage 2 (as stated on the packet)
Secondly, follow on with this super moisturiser of tantalising Tea Tree & calming Canadian Willowherb™. Allow Mother Nature to work her magic to tackle those problem areas.


The moisturiser is a fairly thick white lotion that has a fresh minty scent on application. After using both stages of the Break-Out Mask my skin was left feeling clean, soft and radiant. It also soothed my skin and stopped the swelling under my skin from turning into spots. I'm definitely impressed with this mask and I'm looking forward to trying the rest of the range.

The mask retails at £1.49 and contains a good amount for one treatment. I even had some left over! This mask along with the rest of the Skin Heroes range is available now at Asda and on the Montagne Jeunesse website.

Montagne Jeunesse always look to use natural ingredients and all of their products are suitable for vegetarians.

Hope you enjoyed this review :) Watch out for Part 2 coming soon! Also let me know below if you have tried Montagne Jeunesse and what your favourite products are. I personally love the Strawberry Souffle mask and have repurchased it sooo many times!
