As Many of you will know I suffer with dry skin and with the interchangeable weather it means my skin dries out more. Wind is awful for causing dry skin along with the cold and I notice dry patches (Not eczema) along my nose and forehead. Sometimes moisturiser alone isn’t enough for these and I like to do a treatment of some kind to help it along. Face masks are excellent for helping with these symptoms especially when they are designed for dry skin but can sometimes be expensive. I was recently asked if I would like to try the Montagne Jeunesse Dry Skin Face Mask and was skeptical whether something that costs very little would be good for my dry skin. Here’s what I found…
A little information about the Montagne Jeunesse Skin Heroes 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.
The Montagne Jeunesse masks come in sachets and are for one use only. Storage wise I find this idea as it means less packaging to have laying around in my bathroom. They are a 2 stage system; a face mask and then a hydrating serum you apply once the mask is removed. Getting the sachet open can be a little tricky but the best way I find is with a pair of scissors.
The first stage of the mask is to cleanse your face. As I had a full face of make up on I removed my make up with my facial wash. The mask is then applied to the face quite thickly. There is more than sufficient product in there for your face and neck I found although would not be enough for 2 applications. The next bit is the best bit; sit back and relax for 10-15 minutes and let the mask work its magic.
The second stage is to remove the mask, I did this with a muslin cloth and warm water. Once the mask was completely removed I then applied the second part of the Montagne Jeunesse Dry skin mask; the serum. There was quite a bit of the serum although I decided to use the whole part of the sachet you could probably use that twice if you went a little more sparingly. I massaged this into my face and neck.
I can’t tell you just how wonderful either of the parts of this treatment actually are when it comes to fragrance. Its a sweet scented Blueberry and Raspberry medley which is relaxing and refreshing all in one. This is not an overpowering scent nor does it linger on the skin for long afterwards. It is however really lovely!
The mask was really good, my skin felt great afterwards and I was curious as to how the dry areas around my nose and forehead were looking. On closer inspection I found that the dry skin was minimised greatly around my nose and my forehead you couldn’t even see any! After I applied the serum my whole skin felt moisturised and hydrated. You could not see any dry skin at all around my nose anymore – a first in a while I’d like to add!
Another thing I would like to mention about the serum is the appearance of it on my skin. With many serums I find your skin can look shiny, glossy even. Which if you apply make up afterwards can mean your skin almost looks greasy. However, with this Dry Skin mask my skin almost had a matt appearance like I’d used an oil control serum! Yet my skins was soft, hydrated and moisturised.
My skin had no reaction at all to the face mask or the serum. Even the areas on my face which are slightly more prone to oil (Along my t-zone) didn’t have an outbreak after using it. The psoriasis under my eye and eczema around my chin area both were fine with the mask and had no reaction at all.
Over all I was extremely impressed with this little sachet, I wasn’t expecting miracles and if I’m honest didn’t think it would work very well. But I am eating my words now. I will definitely be repurchasing this mask and want to see whether it keeps the dry skin at bay if used on a weekly basis through the colder, interchangeable weather months.
