I've mentioned Montagne Jeunesse many times on my blog before. They sell inexpensive yet extremely effective face masks in so many varieties with such fab ingredients, I love trying them all out! I was very kindly sent two of their new masks to try, they are the Black Seaweed Peel Off Masque* and the Hot Spring Sauna Masque, so it's now time for me to let you know my thoughts on them.
The Black Seaweed Peel Off Masque's main ingredients are Welsh Laver Seaweed and Sea Buckthorn Berries for detoxing the skin, clearing it of dirt and grease. It has a very fresh salty sea scent that reminds me of being at the coast. You spread an even layer of this black masque all over your face and leave it for around 15-20 mintues until it's dry. Then, as the name suggests, you carefully peel it off. I managed to peel this off all in one go and it didn't leave any product on my face so this is a relatively mess-free mask. When I peeled this off, I revealed lovely fresh looking, smooth feeling skin. It felt like any yucky dead skin cells had been removed and my skin felt soft. This didn't strip any moisture from my skin at all either.
The Hot Spring Sauna masque was a bright orange colour with Volcanic Spring Powder and Ginger. There is also Bamboo which provided exfoliating grains to this mask so on application you massage this gently into the skin to buff away dead skin cells. Also you apply this mask to damp skin which causes a warming effect when the mask mixes with the water. It's really relaxing and soothing. The feeling doesn't last for the full length of time you have the mask on but it's nice when you first apply it. You remove this mask by washing it off with water and you can instantly feel how smooth your skin is after the gentle exfoliation. I actually couldn't stop touching my skin after using this! This one also left my skin feeling really clean yet still moisturised.
I love that both of the masks left my skin feeling more refined and perfected. It actually meant I needed to use less moisturising products for about a week after use as the smoothing effect lasted and meant I could spread my moisturisers and serums over my face more easily and they sunk in a lot faster too as I was applying them to fresh, new skin.
Both of these masks are available for £1.00 each from the Montagne Jeunesse website. Total bargains!
