Review: Montagne Jeunesse Dry Skin Mask

I have the weirdest skin, I swear. It's hideously oily, to the point where even with primer and powder, I'm doing well if my foundation lasts beyond lunchtime. I get breakouts at random, for no readily apparent reason, but I also get random dry patches. It sounds impossible but my forehead is both oily and dry. So, somewhat dubiously, I have tried out Montagne Jeunesse's Dry Skin Mask from their Skin Heroes Range. Like the rest of the Skin Heroes range, this is a two-step treatment consisting of a face mask and complementing moisturiser, designed to target a specific skin complaint - in this case, dry skin. Recently I've been getting really nasty dry, cracked, painful patches on my face so I was hopeful that this would help.
The mask, like all Montagne Jeunesse products, is suitable for vegetarians and contains natural ingredients wherever possible; in this case, the active ingredients are extracts of Raspberries, Blueberries and Red Grapes to provide replenishing, protecting antioxidants.


I smoothed this over freshly cleansed skin and waiting for about twenty minutes. This is a lovely thick, creamy product, which feels gorgeous on the skin and smells amazing! I think it's my favourite Montagne Jeunesse scent of the products I've tried so far, and believe me there's been plenty. This feels really rich and luxurious on the skin and, although it dries as it works, it doesn't go hard and stiff like a clay mask, so your skin doesn't feel uncomfortable or tight. I removed this in the shower with a face cloth and plenty of hot water, and my face was left feeling soft and smooth.


I then applied the moisturiser/serum, which also contains Blueberries and Raspberries, along with KiOsmetine to smoothen the skin. This smelt even better than the face mask, if such a thing is possible. It was a lovely light cream which soaked into the skin really nicely and really helped to soften up some of the tight, dry patches on my face. There's enough in the sachet for four or five applications, and over the next couple of days I've noticed that it's done a really good job of sorting out my dry patches, without breaking me out or making my skin any oilier than it was before - I'm impressed!


Montagne Jeunesse Dry Skin Mask is available from the usual places like Superdrug, Tesco and ASDA, and can also be ordered from their website, priced at £1.49. If you order online, postage in the UK is just 75p, or free if you spend over £10! Remember to check out my reviews of the Break Out Mask and the Shine Control Mask if they sound more suited to you skin.

(I was sent this product as a PR sample for review purposes. This does not affect my opinions in any way and, as always, my review is honest.)

  1. I might have to give this one a try. I have a few MJ masks but I have to be careful because I seem to be horribly allergic to some and not others :/ xx
