Last week I posted about Montagne Jeunesse Skin Heroes – a range of face masques to tackle common skin problems; there is something for oily, dry, spot prone, blackheads and T-zone skin. Each sachet contains a masque AND a second stage moisturising treatment making it a complete system.
I was fortunate enough to receive one of each of the Montange Jeunesse Skin Heroes to review but unfortunately for me my boyfriend also loves face masques and has nabbed a couple that he fancied trying. Boys eh! So this week the blog features my lovely Ian. He sometimes suffers from oiliness and occasional breakouts so he picked the Shine Control masque. It’s infused with Acai Berries and Argan Oil to balance moisture and skin sebum.
It is a skin-coloured, clay-based masque which you apply to your cleansed face, leave for 10-15 minutes (or until dry), then rinse off. The masque has a subtle fruity/floral scent; I thought it smelt a little like Jasmine and interestingly Jasmine is listed in the ingredients! Ian said that the masque felt very mild on his skin, milder than any other face masque he has tried which he said was surprising. He expected it to be tingly at least as masques for oily skins usually are.
The second stage moisturising treatment with this masque is a Balancing Moisturiser. Like the masque this is infused with Acai Berries and Argan Oil as well as KiOsmetine. It is lightly fragranced and leaves the skin with a matte finish. The sachet says it contains only 3g but there is absolutely loads!
Ian was impressed with this masque as a quick fix, but unsure if the benefits are long-lasting as the next day the shininess was back. Perhaps with regular use he would see less oiliness over time. He says for now he would recommend it when you want to see immediate results.
Montagne Jeunesse Skin Heroes are now available at ASDA for just £1.49 each and you can also buy Montagne Jeunesse skin care products from their own website. All Montagne Jeunesse products are suitable for vegetarians and they always look to use natural ingredients which gets a big thumbs up from me!
