Review: Montagne Jeunesse Skin Heroes Break-Out Mask

I have been a naughty little beauty blogger a couple of times this week, falling asleep without taking my make-up off properly. As a result, my skin has been punishing me for it, and I have had a few break-outs. However, this was the perfect time to try out the Montagne Jeunesse Break-Out Mask from their new Skin Heroes range.


Firstly, 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

Montagne Jeunesse Skin Heroes Break-Out Mask*

This 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 cream that you massage on to the face and leave on.

This product contains Tea Tree, Canadian Willowherb and Witch Hazel to calm your skin whilst fighting those pimples. It has the most amazing herbal fragrance which made me feel as though as I was at a spa whilst I was using it. If you are a fan of the smell of tea tree oil, this will definitely appeal to you.

The mask is pale green, and has a thick mud-like consistency and is nice and easy to spread 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 always use face masks whilst I am in the bath, so they are usually left on a little longer.


This face mask feels really cool and soothing on the skin upon application, but dries quite a bit on your face and tightens your skin, so it may not be ideal for those with very dry skin already. However, the moisturiser does seem to restore the moisture in your skin really well and has a lovely, calming peppermint smell. An hour or two after I used the mask, I inspected my skin and noticed that my breakouts had dried up and reduced and they weren't as red, so this face mask does exactly what it is set out to do. It is now one of my favourite Montagne Jeunesse masks and I will definitely be purchasing this in the future.

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!

Are you a fan of Montagne Jeunesse? What is your favourite product?
