This is actually the last post of my Face-Mask Mini Series! I’ll probably do a round-up post later in the week for the whole series, but today’s will just focus on the last face mask: the Nut Oil Masque.
Unfortunately, this past week my skin has suffered a breakout. This is really unusual for me, and I haven’t had so many blemishes for a long time. However, I don’t think it has anything to do with any of the products I’ve been using recently and is probably more of a hormonal thing. Still, I was hoping that the Nut Oil face mask might help a little.

Once again, Montagne Jeunesse have really packed in the natural ingredients here! I think this one probably has the most out of all 6 face masks. I’m really impressed by the list, as they’ve used really good ingredients that are absolutely packed with skin benefits.
The mask itself is a lovely light green colour, with a smooth, buttery texture. Although it wasn’t bad by any means, the smell wasn’t as delicious as some of the other masks I’ve tried. There was a slight nougat scent about it, which was probably the nut oil! I know I say this every week, but there really was so much product in the sachet. Again, I had more than enough to cover my whole face! Unfortunately though, I forgot to take a selfie this time :(
Although it didn’t do anything to stop my skin breaking out, I did notice a big reduction in the redness of my spots almost immediately after I’d taken it off. The blemishes I already had calmed right down and healed quickly. However, the mask didn’t stop my breakout like I was hoping it would, and I’ve continued to get spots and blemishes.
Like the Creamy Coconut mask of Week Five, I think this Nut Oil mask would be a brilliant mask for those with drier skin. I would describe my skin as ‘normal’, and too much moisturising from a product can make it feel a little oily. So like last week, I don’t think I’d buy this mask again as I don’t think it’s right for my skin.
