It’s that time of the week again: time for the Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask review! This week I chose the Dead Sea Mud Spa mask. I’m a big fan of Dead Sea salts – in products and by themselves – as they are one of the best things for natural beauty. I would absolutely love to visit the Dead Sea itself, but at the moment this might be a little risky as its very close to a war-zone. In the meantime, I’ll satisfy myself by planning a little post for you all about the (many) benefits of Dead Sea salts!
But back to this weeks face mask….
- Kaolin: See Week One
- Aloe Vera Leaf Juice: See Week Two
- Dead Sea Salt: See Week One
- Seaweed Extract: Draws excess fluid, toxins and dead cells from the skin. Natural exfoliant . Anti-inflammatory. Rich in B vitamins and moisturising fatty acids.
- Seakelp Extract: Similar benefits to Seaweed Extract
- Dead Sea Mud: Deposited on the shores of the Dead Sea over thousands of years from the surrounding mountains. Contains high levels of magnesium, calcium, potassium, strontium, boron and iron. However, Scientists haven’t discovered exactly what makes Dead Sea Mud so beneficial!
This face mask is a bit different to ones I usually use. Although it looks very similar to the other Montagne Jeunesse masks, it doesn’t come in the usual liquid form. Inside this packet is a pre-made face mask; a sort of thin muslin that has been soaked in the mask. To apply, you just stick in on your face!
I think this a really clever application idea. You don’t have to fuss around with smoothing the mask evenly over your skin, as this is pre-done for you! I washed the muslin after I had used it to check how much product was actually there, and I’m satisfied that the muslin is properly saturated with mask! It’s also really quick to remove; you just peel it back off. There’s a lot less splashing and mess – and it’s a lot more terrifying for unsuspecting family members!
I used this mask on Friday night, and I’m really impressed with it! You just smooth it onto your face, wait for 10-15 minutes, take it off, massage in the extra liquid and wash it all off. I’ll admit that I got confused with the massaging, and did it before I took the mask off while thinking ‘this is a bit weird, I don’t really know what I’m doing’. Taking it off and massaging the left-over liquid makes more sense! It’s fabulously moisturising – I’ve had two early shifts at work this weekend, and I was too lazy to apply moisturiser before my foundation; a winter-skin-sin! But thanks to this mask, my skin hasn’t been too bothered about it. Its also generally lightened up and rejuvenated my face.
All this ease and loveliness does come at a price though – an extra 50p more than other Montagne Jeunesse face masks! If you want a super easy, super quick and super beneficial face mask, still at a bargain – look no further!
