Mask Hurray!: Montagne Jeunesse/7th Heaven Blemish Mud

So here we have another Mask Hurray post! This week I tried out Montagne Jeunesse's Blemish Mud and if you would like to know what I thought of it, then keep on reading!

My skin wasn't feeling so great this week, so I thought a Blemish Mud would be a good idea to help soothe my skin a little bit. This mask contains Aloe Vera, Evening Primrose and Witch Hazel, all of which help to reduce blemishes and help to create balance in the skin!

Just before we start... I removed my makeup and cleansed my skin before applying this mask (as you're supposed to) and I would just like to point out that Collection's Extreme Eyeliner pen in the purple shade has the staying power of a tattoo! I used 3 different products to get this off and it would. not. budge! So i'd definitely recommend this eyeliner...
Just look at it's purpleness!

Anyway... Back on topic!

When I first applied this there was a strong smell of Aloe and a slight smell of clay, but this wasn't unpleasant or overpowering and didn't affect the way it felt on my skin. It had a think consistency and I applied it using my face mask brush, which made it very smooth and even. I found that this is one of the most calm masks from the range and it didn't tingle on my skin anywhere near as much as others have.
First Applied
Almost Dried

I left this applied for 20 minutes (top of recommended time) and removed it with warm water. I didn't have a face cloth so just had to use the water and my hands to remove it, which was kind of difficult so I'd suggest getting a cloth to remove the mud masks. I did find that once my face was dry my blemishes were less red, but were still there and this mask didn't seem to help them as much as other masks I've tried. My skin was smoother when I removed it too but again, I didn't see a massive benefit from it. I used my moisturiser after drying my face as I found it slightly drying, I noticed mostly on my nose where it had dried my skin.

My skin felt soft for the rest of the evening, and I did notice it was slightly better the next day too. Overall I think I will stick to the other masks I've tried, or find some more masks to try out, as this one didn't really hit the spot for me!

Until next time...
