Montagne Jeunesse has to be one of the beauty brands I remember back from my teenage years. We would buy these masks for about 70p back then, and apply them to ensure fresh looking skin before we went on a date.
Roll on 15 years and this brand is still reinventing itself and its masks. So I was thrilled when they sent us some to try out. The new skin heroes range is all about tailoring products for different skin types, rather than a one size fits all approach, which we love. All of the products are suitable for vegetarians and the company always look to use natural ingredients, another plus point.

There are five masks in the range, for different skin conditions: shine control, break out, T zone, de-clog pores and dry skin.
The first one I was keen to try was the de-clog pores strip.
In the pack comes three to try. The strips are designed to fit across your nose, and are infused with orange flower water and witch hazel, it was a bit overwhelming to start with, but I soon got used to it.

The idea is to leave this strip on the nose for 10-15 minutes. I really suffer from blocked pores around the nose area so this was a great treatment, and you can really feel it working.

The next mask I tried was the shine control, another of my skin conditions! Suffering from very greasy skin, this is an obvious choice for me.
The mask is very light in appearance and consistency. It is a mud mask, which has aragan oil and crushed acai berries added to it, and I know the acai berries have antioxidant properties so it is interesting to find them as an ingredient in this mask. It is very different to the clay masks I have been so used to in the past.
The great thing with these masks is they have a two step process. So once you have covered your face with the mask and let it settle for about ten minutes, you rinse it off, and then apply the moisturiser to restore the skins balance.

The moisturiser smells really fresh and leaves skin so smooth and silky!
The next mask is the dry skin mask. Now neither myself or Mags suffer from dry skin, but I gave this one ago in the name of research!
This mask has a slightly creamier texture to it, which I guess makes sense as it is combating dry skin, which will require more moisture, and feels a lot heavier that the previous mask. It boasts raspberries, blueberries and red grapes, and you can smell all these fruits!
The mask also comes with a serum similar to the moisturiser in the last mask. This is a great touch as it really feels like the two treatments work hand in hand and have really been thought through as an overall treatment for the face.
The only down side to these masks is probably the fiddly sachets they come in, but for the price, I don’t thing you can expect any lavish packaging.
They are really simple to use, following the instructions on the back of the packet is easy, and you can see results after one use.
Mags will be telling us more about the other two masks later in the month.
Montagne Jeunesse skin heroes are available now from Asda, and cost a wonderful, penny pinching £1.49. I’m off to stock up on some more and buy some for my friends!
