It's basically law, well not really but you'll get my drift hehe ;) , that I do a huge pamper sesh every Sunday afternoon into the evening, which involves everything from doing nails to scrubs and of course a lovely mask. I can't believe it's taken me this long to blog about a brand that I have adored for such a long time.
Montagne Jeunesse Break-Out Mask - Clicks (They're approx. R25.00 but do check out the specials at Clicks especially the 3 for 2):
For problem skin, Prone to Eruptions ~ With Tea Tree and Willowherb
This amazing mask has two stages:
STAGE 1 - Cleansing Mud Mask:
A mud mask fusion of calming tea tree and soothing Canadian Willowherb to remove and unblock pores, with Witch Hazel to calm skin.
* This mask should actually be considered more of an exfoliator, I didn't use an exfoliater beforehand as I don't want to aggrevate my skin. Basically you cleanse your face, apply, and relax for 15 - 20 minutes, it's absolute bliss!
The mask has a lovely lime smell, which feels very calming and soothing, it's also a gorgeous mint-green colour, so I felt as pretty as one could possibly feel walking around the house like this ;)
After I removed the mask with lukewarm water and a cloth, my skin looked and felt very refreshed, and also almost no redness.
STAGE 2 - Rapid Action Moisturiser:
Moisturiser with Tea Tree and calming Canadian Willowherb.
* After purifying your skin, this calming moisturiser is applied in a massage motion and left to deeply moisturise your skin, my face felt incredibly smooth and plump, and I had a really glowy complexion.
Now you know the best bit of all? Is going to sleep with all of the goodness on your skin, and waking up the next morning to really see the benefits ... and I woke to skin that looked calm and even, which is such a massive improvement because I not only have sensitive and the start of a mature skin, but also skin prone to break-outs and redness, if you have any troubles with your skin, I would highly advise you give this a try.
I have used almost all of the different types in this range, but I have to say this one and the chocolate one is my favourite ones. Did you know they're also cruelty free and vegetarian? In their own words:
"We're vegetarian and animals are our friends - that's why we don't bash bunnies or add bits of animals!"
I love their philosophy and I urge other brands to follow in their footsteps and do the right thing.
