A few weeks back Motagne Jennesse contacted me and kindly sent me samples of their new Skin Heroes range. I've tried a few face masks in the past but not many, so I was really excited to try these. They have a whole range of masks available for different skin types. There are 5 sachets in total, dry skin mask, t-zone peel, break out mask, shine control and a pack of 3 nose strips.
The first thing I noticed about these face masks is that they come in two separate steps, which I'd never seen before. I think it's great that they give you a way to treat your skin even after you've washed the mask off! I was very impressed with how much product you actually get in these sachets, more than enough to use it twice over. I just wish I had a pot to put the left over product in, I hate to waste products so layered as much on as I could. This did make it longer to dry but at not much longer than the recommended time.
What I also love is that this brand is BUAV approved and Vegetarian standard, I like products that have natural ingredients in them rather than a bunch of chemicals that I can't pronounce.
The moisturizer has Acai Berries and Argan Oil worked into it. I did notice that at first this moisturizer was quite oily on my skin but once it had time to sink in it really does leave your face feeling smooth.
My skin has been up and down recently and it changes from one week to the next so couldn't wait to try all the different types as these all relate to my skin. I have acne-prone skin and am always on the look-out for new ways to help stop flare ups.
The first mask I tried was the Break Out mask. This smells heavily of tea tree oil which I love and is supposed to be really good for break outs. I put this on quite thick and left it on for just over 20 minutes. The recommended time is 15-20 but as I'd put it on thick it took a while to dry. I have quite an oily t-zone so was excited to try the peel off mask which again you leave on for up to 20 minutes. The shine control mask is probably the one I noticed the least difference with, I do get quite oily skin during the day, depending on what I'm doing but did not notice if this mask took that away. The dry skin mask I did notice a difference with, although my skin does get oily there are times it gets really dry and could feel my skin was quite moisturised after this rather than oily. The nose strips are like most strips really, but they did really help with blackheads and helping the area on the nose smooth out.
These masks aren't a quick fix for skin problems but they do help when incorporated into your skincare routine and for £1.49 you can't go wrong! I will definitely be purchasing more of these in the future. These masks are available from ASDA.
Have you tried these? What did you think?
