Montagne Jeunesse Black Seaweed Peel Off Masque | Review

I recently placed my first order with Montagne Jeunesse, after discovering that they are a BUAV-approved, cruelty-free brand, and purchased myself some exciting products. They also pride themselves on creating their products using all-natural ingredients. All of their products are suitable for use by vegetarians. The first product I used was this face mask:
Black Seaweed Peel Off Masque, £1/10ml

This face mask claims to deeply cleanse and detox your skin. It is suggested that you cleanse your skin and then apply the face mask, leaving it on for 15-20 minutes before gently peeling off. This face mask contains chopped black Laver seaweed from the Welsh seaside and crushed Sea Buckthorn berries.
Firstly, this face mask was very messy! The 10ml sachet gave a good, even coverage. The scent was not unpleasant, but not wonderful either; a marine scent which wasn't over-powering. If you have long nails, wear gloves to apply this as it gets under your nails really easily and is a pain to remove!
I left the mask on for approximately 15 minutes and then proceeded to "peel" it off. Well, only a few small sections peeled off successfully. The rest of the mask hadn't appeared to have set properly and so I was just scraping it off.
I imagine that leaving it on for a further 5 minutes could have avoided this problem. I finished by washing my face in the shower with a face cloth to ensure I had removed all of the mask.
Despite the peel-off problem, the mask worked successfully in cleansing my skin and my pores appeared visibly clearer and reduced, particularly on my cheeks and chin area. I feel that if the mask had peeled off correctly, I would have seen even better results.

This product is a complete bargain at just £1 and I would recommend it if you don't mind the mess!
I was also impressed with their delivery costs; just £1 P&P per order and it's free if you spend over £15!
Unfortunately I won't be re-purchasing this particular face mask due to the messiness of it!

I look forward to trying out the other products I purchased and sharing my thoughts with you!

Have you tried this face mask before?
