I have seen the regular face masks made by Montague Jeunesse in Superdrug and I have been guilty of being a bit of a products snob, at around a pound I thought there was no way they could compete with my Ren masks or My Elemis. But that being said I had seen a few Gurus recommending them and decided to give them a try.
I went for the sheet masks as I had not tried them before and thought they looked interesting. Sheet masks are very popular in Asia and are basically cloth masks infused with clay and other such ingredients. I went for the sea salt mask known as the dead sea spa mask and a clay mask known as the dead sea mud spa.
When you get the sheet mask out it smells strongly of the clay and other active ingredients. The mask itself is huge, I could have fit it on my face twice over, but with some careful positioning I managed to get it in place, if you have not seen them before they have cutouts for your eyes, nose and mouth. What I liked about it was how cooling it was on the skin, perfect for the warmer months!. Once on it stayed in place whilst I had a bath and let it do its thing for ten minutes. Once off it tells you on the packet to massage in any residue and then rinse.
To the results, well I was pleasantly surprised. I used the sea salt mask and I have to say after use my skin looked a lot fresher and it was feeling very soft. I did not notice much difference in tone or clarity and my few blackheads were still there, but I did think my skin looked more vibrant. For the price the sheet mask performed well. I am looking forward to using the other variety’s to see if the results are any better. The masks come in many forms depending on your skin type and as there is a big choice there is something for everyone. My skin is combination and I was pleased with how the salt mask dried up my oily chin, yet did not dry out my cheeks that do not get oily.
