I was all on time and great posting the first half of my reviews for the Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks Mask Off but then life (ie: a death in the family and a move and a new job) happened and somehow the second half of posting never did. But I tried them! And I really liked them! So here are my thoughts on the Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks in Apricot Scrub*, Dead Sea Mud Spa* and Super Fruit Mud*.
The Montagne Jeunesse Apricot Scrub Face Mask is a creamy mask with crushed apricots seeds that smells like apricot–in other words, really delicious. I just love the scent of all these masks! It applies kinda like a thick scrub so as you massage it in to get it spread out on your face it exfoliates. It’s not super intense but if you have really sensitive skin and aren’t comfortable with physical exfoliation than it probably wouldn’t work for you. After about 5 minutes or so it does dry and tighten on your skin. To remove it I do suggest using a face cloth because there are lots of bits and pieces to rinse away. Afterwards my skin felt really nice and clean. It was a little dry but not bad, and although I think the scrub element was more powerful than the “mask” aspect, it was definitely really nice to use.
In terms of the easiest to apply, the Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Spa Face Mask definitely wins out of all six I tried because it is a sheet mask. I really enjoyed how cooling on the face this felt, and the light, oceany scent. I definitely get the spa aspect. It left my face feeling cleansed, relaxed and refreshed. It didn’t dry on the skin or leave my skin feeling dry despite the mud element and it was super easy to clean up. I could definitely see myself picking up this one again in the future!
The final mask I tried was the Montagne Jeunesse Super Fruit Mud Face Mask. Unfortunately, there was a stinging sensation when I applied, especially under my eye area. The scent was the least noticeable of all the ones I have used so far, it was slightly berry/fruity but not overpowering. Like several of the masks, there was a huge amount of product, definitely enough for two people. Over time stinging does go away, but the mask tightens as the clay dries. The end result was very cleansing and my pores looked great, however like all clay masks it was quite drying and so I do recommend applying a moisturizer afterwards. For a less drying clay mask I loved, I recommend checking out the Nut Oil Mask instead reviewed in my first post!
Well that’s it for my Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks reviews! I think my favourites are probably the Nut Oil and the Dead Sea Mud Spa Face Mask. Montagne Jeunesse has some amazing and affordable face masks so it’s really just about finding the one that works for your skin. You can pick these up online at Farley Co, or in store at most drug stores such as London Drugs, Jean Coutu, Pharmasave, or Lawtons if you’re in the maritimes like me.
