Montagne Jeunesse Skin Heroes Break-out Mask Review


This is one of five products in Montagne Jeunesse's Skin Heroes range. It is the Break-Out mask retailing at £1.49 for 15g of mask and 3g of lotion. All masks in this range have 2 steps, a mask and a moisturiser. I find that the sachet lasts for at least 2 uses, sometimes 3.

The break-out mask is a mud mask containing willowherb, witch hazel and tea tree and claims to cleanse the pores. It is for problematic skin prone to imperfections, blemishes and spots. Unfortunately I fit into that skin type but fortunately it means this should help! (It did.)

The mask itself is the pale green colour depicted, applies very smoothly and is easy to even out on the face. It has a faint tea tree smell and after 15-20 minutes dried and was easy to wash off. The first time I used this I am 99% sure it shrunk my spots, I had 2 on my cheek (doesn't that sound great?! Yuck.) and both had shrunk and practically disappeared. On subsequent uses (and the first) my skin felt soft and smooth afterwards, clean and looked slightly more even-toned.

The 2nd step is a lotion, it is a pure white lotion also smelling a little of tea tree and is absorbed well by the skin after about 5 minutes. It is easy to apply and I found that I really liked having a "matching" lotion to use after the mask. I call it a lotion because it is less dense in comparison to a cream. The only negative with the lotion is that it made me oily after a few hours, I used the smallest amount several times after using this mask (I already repurchased.) and it had the same effect. I'm not sure if it's just on my skin or it's that way with other people too? Have you found the same?

I would recommend this for combination/oily skins prone to break-outs, despite the slight issue I have with the lotion - although I still love it! Would I repurchase this? I already have. It is available from Montagne Jeunesse's website, Boots, Superdrug and supermarkets. Montagne Jeunesse are 100% cruelty-free and BUAV approved. All the more reason to love them!

Have you tried any of the Skin Heroes range?
