Montagne Jeunesse // Clay Spa Face Masques

Montagne Jeunesse is a brand I've used for a huge chunk of my life, they were always the sleepover essential growing up, whoever hosted purchased the masks. I've used around 90% of their masks and couldn't wait to try the two new additions that will be available from Boots mid August, Asda from September .
For those who don't know Montagne Jeunesse:
Montagne Jeunesse have been around for 25 years, where it all started mixing natural products in a kitchen. They now sell 30,000 masques every single day in the UK alone. All products are vegetarian-approved, made from natural ingredients and paraben-free, along with their energy efficient headquarters and against animal testing. It's not all about face masques, there's scrubs, lip balm, hair care and even a mens line.
The new additions:
Montagne Jeunesse Clay Spas brings you two face masks to fit around you as a weekly treat for your skin care routine. They both contain sourced clays that are infused in natural bamboo fabric. This 'never seen before type of face masque' provides quicker cleansing, with zero mess. Each masque will retail at £1.49.
Glacial Clay Spa - Sourced from Canada's Northwest coast this masque is designed to cool your skin, rehydrate and remove impurities from your pores. Red grape acts like a protectant to the skin while cloudberries soothe, both full of anti-oxidants. Sounds good right?
Dead Sea Mud Spa - Natural bamboo fabric is enriched in dead sea minerals and dead sea mud. This is a deep cleansing masque to draw out your impurities that block those pores. Moisture levels are said to be restored while also firming and nourishing for a younger look.
How to use:
Simply tear open the packet, unfold the masque and apply to the face. Relax for 10-15 minutes, I left mine on for 5 extra minutes, mine still felt damp. Then massaged my face for a minute with the clean side of the cloth mask, before rinsing away the clay/mud left on your face. Zero mess is made, perfect when you're feeling lazy.
How I got on:
My experience with these masques has been 50:50. One isn't for me, while the other is brilliant. Dead Sea Mud Spa was the first of the two I tried, I had high hopes as I adore using products with dead sea minerals in, the benefits are usually brilliant. However when it came to the removal, everything had been fine, I felt converted to 'sheet/cloth' style masks. But I noticed my skin felt drier and redness was starting to appear. I hoped it would go away, however 5 minutes later it felt tingly and looked a lot more red. I started to worry, I had an awful experience with a Superdrug masque years ago, where I was left red for days. Despite tingly, feeling rather warm and looking like a like a ripening tomato, it dulled down after half an hour. 
-----
The second of the two masques, Glacial Clay Spa was entirely different. The masque has no colour difference and they smell the same, clean, fresh from the spa scent. They definitely have me in the holiday mood. I watched One Tree Hill and waited the 20 minutes hoping I wouldn't become a tomato again and thank god I didn't this time around. After removing the masque my skin felt amazing, it felt so clean, this really cleanses your pores. I felt refreshed and I had no need to cleanse that night..though the best bit was seeing no redness. This masque gets a 10 from me, especially because removing takes a minute, no more scrubbing at your face or bathroom floor.

I'll repurchase the Glacial Clay Spa masque, but not the Dead Sea Mud Spa masque from my experience. I'd be interested in seeing how anyone else got on with them.

  2. Think I'll steer clear of the Mud Mask as I've got really sensitive skin, but the Glacial one sounds great! and they're super cheap!!

    1. It's not worth the risk is it, thankfully it didn't last long, noticed after it said test patch, never noticed that on face masks before.

  3. I've got rather sensitive/spot prone skin so somehow I don't think the mud one would work for me! I grew up with these masques as well! Definitely a sleepover must have as you say!!! Xx

    1. I think the mud is for oily and non sensitive, where as the glacial is for dry and sensitive people! :D

  6. I've yet to try my mud one.. Loved the glacial spa. I dislike their false packagaing though. The masks are never accurate compared to the representation on the packaging.. Love the box they came in though!
