After reading a fair few reviews on face masks recently, I found myself lurking around the “Montagne Jeunesse” display stand in my local Asda, and after much deliberation decided that I would treat myself, even if they do normally extract all the bad stuff from my skin and leave me looking like a a teenager, covered in spots!

The mask I will review is - “Bemish mud - aloe vera & willow”.

As with all the other masks in this range his comes within a foil packet, with an easy to open “tear” section.

There is all the usual information to be found on the packet, brand name, product name and description, directions for use and rather strange looking picture of a woman wearing the mask with two large flowers covering each eye, though the colour of the mask is slightly misleading as on the picture it is a lovely apple green colour, but the mask itself is actually a rather dull looking grey colour when applied to the face.

To use you simply cleanse your face with tepid water, which I assume is to start opening the pores ready to draw any rubbish out of the skin once the mask has been applied, then smooth the mud over your face being careful around your eye’s, and hairline too, it took me ages to remove the dried mud from my hair!

You should then leave it on for a while or until it has dried, so I applied mine before I was going to wallow in a hot bath, and even with how hot I had it (my skin is usually purple when I come out!), the mask still managed to dry, well set is probably the better word for it, after a few minutes I felt lie my face belonged to someone else as I had no control over it, not even being able to smile very much due to how solid this was (though my husband said if they started selling one that froze the muscles that work the mouth too he would be quite happy to make a regular purchase of it for me….cheeky!).

When on my skin I really didn’t feel like it was doing anything other than drying, there was no tingling or any other sensation, with the only thing I did notice being the strong herbal scent of the ingredients, which are willow, aloe vera, rosemary and witch hazel, all of which have soothing properties for sore and damaged skin, which I am afraid mine is, due to having suffered with spots for so many years.

To remove you have to rinse off, though this is easier said than done, so I used a flannel soaked in warm water, and gently rubbed the mask away, this did take a little while, though at least my skin was getting a good scrub too!

Once removed my skin had a healthy glow to it (this is due to the mask and the rubbing with the flannel!) but that was all, so I applied a good rich face cream to put back a little moisture that may have been lost with the mask and thought nothing more about it.

After an hour I got out of the bath and glanced in the mirror and was actually really pleased with the result.

The glow had gone down sufficiently and my skin just looked really healthy and felt incredibly smooth and soft, so good in fact that I didn’t feel the need to apply any make up afterwards (something unheard of in my house!).

A couple of days later I did notice that I was a little spottier than normal, though I can cope with this as my skin still feels very smooth, I rate this so highly that I fully intend on treating myself the next time I go shopping, and at only 99p a sachet I may get a few different “flavours” too!

This is a lovely little treat that, even though in-expensive, makes you feel that you have had a little pampering and improved my well being, albeit for as long as it took the kids to work out where I had hidden myself, recommended!

That's certainly packaging that stands out...looks like the DVD cover for a 50s sci-fi movie.
