I am a total sucker for face masks. My favorite way to really pamper myself is to pull out one of my favorite face masks, and I'm always on the hunt for something new. So when I got an opportunity to try some Montagne Jeunesse face masks, I couldn't say no. I've seen these in stores for ages, and many of you have probably tried them (or at least thought about trying them) before yourself. They're cheap and fun to use! Here are my thoughts on a couple different masks.
The first mask I tried was the Super Fruit Mud mask, a mask made with goji berries. According to the Montagne Jeunesse website, "Goji Berries are one of the most powerful super fruits around so this mud packs a punch when it comes to protecting against the drying effects of environmental stresses. We've added nutrient rich Pomegranates too – POW!"
The Super Fruit Mud mask smells lightly fruity and floral, and stung when I applied it to my face. Nothing horrible, but enough to be uncomfortable for a bit. This reminded me of the classic Queen Helene Mint Julep mask in terms of consistency and texture. As it dried, it felt nice and cool and it left my face stiff. I left it on for 15 minutes, and washed it off with warm water.
Overall, I really didn't notice anything different with my skin after using this mask. It didn't break me out, and it didn't do anything special.
The second mask I tried is the Creamy Coconut mask. The Montagne Jeunesse website says, "We've harnessed the hydrating goodness of fresh Coconut Water and added lots of lovely ingredients to moisturise and hydrate, including super smoothing Shea Butter."
The Creamy Coconut mask smells like fake coconuts - the typical "coconut" lotion or tanning lotion smell. This mask had a much thinner consistency compared to the Super Fruit Mud mask, and applied more like a lotion. This mask didn't sting at all, and felt cool and refreshing as it dried on my skin.
The next morning my face felt hydrated without being oily and my skin looked even and balanced. Between the two masks, this was definitely my favorite.
I really enjoy using Montagne Jeunesse face masks. They're super cheap (usually $2 and under) and I am able to get 2-3 uses from each packet. If you're like me and get bored easily with one product, these masks are the perfect way to try something new without breaking the bank each time you do. I'd recommend trying these if you're a face mask lover!
