Review: Montagne Jeunesse Clay Spa Masques

Montagne Jeunesse are introducing a new range to their already extensive selection of face masques and other skincare goodies - Clay Spa Face Masques. Like all of Montagne Jeunesse's products, these new masques are vegetarian-approved, made from natural ingredients, and paraben-free. Taken from their website:
"Introducing two NEW ground-breaking face masques that deliver a unique, enhanced cleansing experience. Specially sourced clays are infused into natural bamboo fabric making deep cleansing your skin quicker, easier and more convenient than ever before – creating a whole new type of face masque, a world’s first in face care!"
Montagne Jeunesse kindly sent me one of each masque to test and review.

First up, I tried the Glacial Clay Spa, which claims to give a "sensational skin clean" - just the ticket! 
Containing Glacial Clay from the Northwest Coast of Canada to cool, re-hydrate and deep-cleanse; Arctic Cloudberry to soothe, protect, and heal; and Red Grape to protect from free radical damage, this masque is formulated to refresh and sooth the skin. 


This is what the packaging has to say:

"Give your skin the ride of its life and feel the natural rush of cooling Glacial Clay cleanse your pores to the core. Antioxidant-rich Red Grape and Arctic Cloudberry juices from the glacial heights of Scandinavia work their magic to help maintain skin's natural barrier."

Following the simple directions, I applied the sheet masque to cleansed skin and relaxed for about 20 minutes before massaging my face, and rinsing the excess clay off. My skin was left feeling refreshed and extremely smooth, whilst redness was reduced. I loved using this masque and will definitely be re-purchasing.

The second masque is the Dead Sea Mud Spa, claiming to give an "extraordinary cleansing experience!" This masque's active ingredients include Dead Sea Minerals to draw out impurities and unblock pores; Seaweed to restore moisture, revitalise, and firm; and Sea Kelp to keep skin moisturised, nourished and youthful. 



According to the packaging, the masque will:
"Breathe life back into skin with intensely invigorating and revitalising Dead Sea Minerals. We've harvested the ocean's nutrient-rich Seaweed and Kelp right from the source - a satisfying boost for thirsty skin, and then some!"



Again, this is applied to cleansed skin and removed after around 20 minutes. Once I'd washed my face and moisturised, my skin was again left feeling super-soft and smooth, and really hydrated. This is another Montagne Jeunesse product I will definitely be repurchasing!
One of the main things I love about sheet masques is how little mess there is - you don't have all the fuss of trying to get it from packet to face without getting it everywhere else, and removal is a doddle as well. My only complaint really was the fact that the shape of the masques didn't fit my face very well, leaving a large amount of my chin uncovered, but that's an occupational side-effect of such a product.
Suitable for all skin types, the Clay Spas retail at £1.49 each and are available to buy from the Montagne Jeunesse website. They'll also be available in Boots from mid-August and in Asda from September.
Do you like the sound of Montagne Jeunesse's Clay Spas? Which will you try first?
