Review: Montagne Jeunesse Skin Heroes Dry Skin Mask

Last week I received an email from Montagne Jeunesse asking if I would like to review their new Skin Heroes range. I jumped at the chance as I am already a fan of Montagne Jeunesse products and I was actually looking for a new face mask anyway. I am going to post a little review of each one as I use them all up :)

Here is what Montagne Jeunesse say about their new range:
Are you having a skin problem? Do you need help? Do you always ask yourself ‘which mask shall I use for my Oily/Dry/Spot Prone/Blackheads or T-Zone Skin? Fear not our NEW Skin Hero Range has landed and are raring & ready to fight for your right to clear, healthy skin the natural way; it’s your weekly essential for healthy, gorgeous, problem free skin.
These are the products in the range:
  • De-clog Pores nose strips
  • Break Out Mask
  • Shine Control
  • Dry Skin Mask
  • T-Zone Peel Off

The first product I decided to use is the Dry Skin Mask*. A couple of days ago I came out with a random cold, which left me with dry flaky skin around my nose area and I do tend to get a few dry spots on my forehead.
The mask has two steps; the first is the mask, which you apply to a cleansed face and leave for 15-20 minutes before rinsing off, and the second is a moisturising serum that you massage on to the face and leave on.

This product contains blueberries, raspberries and red grapes, which are high in anti-oxidants that protect and replenish the skin. This mask smells amazing, you can definitely smell the fruits in there. However, even though I liked the fragrance, I couldn't help but think that it was a little artificial and perfume-y which may be a turn-off for some.

The mask comes in a thick, very pale pink cream consistency and is nice and easy to smooth on to your face with your fingers. I would say that there is enough product in each sachet to last for two uses, so after I applied it I taped up the packet to use another time. The directions say to leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes but I left mine on a little longer whilst I was relaxing in the bath.

When I rinsed the mask off, my face felt so clean and smooth. I massaged on a little of the serum, which has a consistency a bit like a lotion. I was a little worried at first because it seemed to leave a greasy film over my face when I applied it, but this sunk in within a matter of minutes and I was left with moisturised skin that was velvety to the touch. The product really helped to soothe the dry skin around my nose and left it feeling so clean. A definite thumbs up.

The Montagne Jeunesse Skin Heroes range is now available in ASDA stores, and they are a steal at just £1.49 per sachet. You can also purchase Montagne Jeunesse skin care products online at their website, postage only costs £0.50p, or is completely free if you spend just £7.50! And as a bonus, all of their products are suitable for vegetarians and they look to use natural ingredients to give your skin the TLC it needs!
