When it comes to mask, I am ashamed. I'm not the best of doing this process in a weekly manner. I've been trying to be good this year by doing it twice a week (Sunday and Wednesday). Yes, I have a schedule or else I will forget. :X I finally finished my two Montagne Jeunesse masks that I bought beginning of 2010 . Product Review: Montagne Jennesse Chocolate Masque
Where can you purchase this: drugstore, Ulta, and online Price: around $2 for 0.7 oz/20 g
Made in UK
Direction on the back: To benefit fully we recommend thoroughly cleanse face with warm water only. Apply evenly to face and neck, avoiding eyes and lips. Now lie back and relax and let the masque do its work. Leave on for 10-15 minutes or until dry. Rinse with water. Pat dry. Use weekly. Ingredients: My thoughts: The only reason I bought these is because I saw so many people blog about it on their blogs at the time. It really intrigued my interest especially all these yummy flavors.
This mask is towards people who have normal, dry and t-zone skin. It also says it deep pore cleansing. I have dry skin but also my t-zone areas has big pores. Maybe I'm combination which was my case growing up. I feel that my skin is drier than most people though as I age *sigh*. :/
This is good for 3-5 uses, and it smells like chocolate. Not the typical chocolate that you buy from drugstore. It tastes more like Swedish chocolate. Yes, they taste different to me. :P
After using this, I have mix feelings. I noticed my skin is plump compared to before the mask. I also noticed tiny red bumps which wasn't there before the mask. I am not too sure why. :/
The last thing I have to say is that it's the most dirtiest product. After I wash my face, my sink and counters are brown from the mask. For that reason, I try to use this the day before I clean my bathroom.
Pros: * It smells good, Swedish chocolate. * Looks like chocolate on the face. * Plumps your face. * Dries pretty fast.
Cons: * Strong scent. * Needs to wash your face after the mask unlike sheet masks. * There was tiny red spots on my face; I might be sensitive to this product. * My sink and counters have brown spots after usage.
Would I repurchase: No. Rating: 2.5/5 Tobey's Paws
Product Review: Montagne Jeunesse Fruit Smoothie
Direction on the back: Bursting with healthy goodness, our thick smoothie treat of Raspberry, Mango, Apricot, Peach & Pomegranate isn't a drink but it is bound to leave you in a smiley mood - with fresher, cleansed and softer skin! Be good to yourself! Cleanse with warm water only. Apply evenly over face and neck with fingertips, avoiding eyes and lips. Lie back and relax for 10-15 minutes, or until dry, rinse off with warm water. Pat dry. Use weekly. Ingredients: My thoughts: After my experience with the chocolate one, I wasn't too thrilled to try this. I actually liked this better than the chocolate one. It smelled better. I tend to like fruity smells and it smelled delicious!!! :)
This mask is suppose to deeply cleansed, fresh, and sparkling. I definitely felt fresh after this mask, but I think I feel that way all the time after I cleanse. :X It just makes me feel clean. I did notice plumpness in the morning which is a big plus. The chocolate mask left tiny, red bumps after masking. This mask didn't which is another big plus. I'm guessing the chocolate mask has an ingredient that this mask doesn't that my skin particularly doesn't like.
It's also easier to clean your face. Since the mask is more on the white-creamy color, you don't notice it dirtying your sink and counter.
Pros: * It smells good, fruity. * Plumps your face. * Dries pretty fast.
Cons: * Need to wash your face after the mask unlike sheet masks.
Would I repurchase: No, to be honest. I realized I prefer sheet masks over this. Rating:
Speaking of masks, I was fortunate to receive a lot of sheet masks from Luna . I will post them up, as well as, products that she sent after I use them. The first brand of sheet masks I used are FaceQ. Aren't the packaging so cute!?!? The packaging could just sell me. :) I asked Luna which masks I should try first, and she said her favorites are My Beauty Diary and FaceQ. I had to use FaceQ first for the cute packaging. :X
The one on the left is Grape Seed, Green Tea mask. The one on the right is Red Pomegranate, CoQ10 mask. Even though they have fruity scents, you don't smell them. So if you do not like scents, I definitely recommend these.
My face felt plump after usage and the day after. My pores especially on the nose seemed smaller and gave my face a shine. I love how soft my face felt by touch.
Thank you Luna!!! I love the masks. :)
