I had the privilege of trying out some wonderful face masks from Montagne Jeunesse from Neoteric Cosmetics inc
. I chose to review 2 of the masks the Chocolate Masque and the Fruit Smoothie Mask. Mind you, you should only use a mask once a week on your face, so I had to wait a week between the two!
As I studied up on these products for my review, I learned some great things about them that I didn’t know. The products are filled with plant extracts, sea mineral, essential oils, fruits and flowers. Eco-Friendly and cruelty-free, all MJ products are approved by the British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection and the vegetarian Society. All this it makes these products all the more appealing and I couldn’t wait to test them and share the results with you.
I’ve seen these masks in the store for years now and I remember picking them up when I first saw the beautiful picture on the front, so yummy and so very creative the colorful graphics catch the eye. I picked one up on the shelf and being frugal as I am, I looked at the size of the envelope and wondered if indeed there was enough in it for one full facial involving the face and neck. And I set the product back down, and didn’t take a second look at it. Well, I didn’t take a second look at it, though every time I passed the masks I admit I looked again, and realized how the stock seemed to have more and more varieties of these masks.
I received my masks for the review in the mail and must say my doubts where totally unfounded, there is more then enough in the packets for a full mask on the neck and the face with plenty to spare. I must admit I folded up the ends of the masks that I’ve used and used my old stylists hair clip on them and plan to do a half and half facial, using some on my lower cheeks and different one on my t zone area! Shhhh… don’t tell. Wink
I have to say that the packaging makes it very easy to open… I had my scissors at the ready and didn’t need them… I knew darn well I wasn’t going to bite the package open, believe me I’ve done that a few times in the bath with shampoo packets and nothing like the taste of shampoo on your lips. The opening in the packets were both just perfect for getting a nice narrow stream out of the packet nice and neat! You then smell the lovely aroma of these products, the chocolate made me want to eat some and the smoothie made me think of exactly that smoothies… I am still craving smoothies as a result! Then the messy part begins as I spread it on my freshly washed (with warm water only) face… With the smoothie I could feel a little tingly sensation, the chocolate I didn’t feel as much of the tingly feeling. But I did have a little bit of sun on my skin just before trying the smoothie mask, as with both of them you could feel them tightening as they dried.
Speaking of drying, if you use these in the bathtub, like I did the day that I did yard work and I used the smoothie mask, expect the humidity in the bathroom to slow the drying process from the 10 to 15 minutes that it says to wait.
I love the chocolate, I must have gotten some in my nose because even after rinsing off well, hours later
I swear I could still smell the chocolate. The Mask left my skin smooth and clean feeling although a little tight, but my moisturizer seemed to soak in better then normal and improved the way the moisturizer worked on my skin. The fruit smoothie was wonderful for my skin, it not only felt clean, smooth and soft, but it didn’t feel overly tight even without my moisturizer.
These handy little packages have just the right price on them so I can now see stocking up on them for a nice variety in my weekly facial routine, and for in a guest bathroom. These would be a great idea for stocking stuffers for the gals on my Christmas list… or placed in a basket filled up with bathroom goodies and for a big gift place it in with some of their foot care and hair masks, as well as a nice washcloth & matching towel or two.
With the facts that I’ve learned about the Montagne Jeunesse
line and the results, I will be picking up some more of the products for my home. There are 14 facial masks, 2 of which are peel off that I saw on the list and they have “Tonics”, hair care, masks for men and foot & leg care as well as the facial Masks (that now includes some nighttime masks). I recommend you give these products a try too, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
