On to the source of youth with Montagne Jeunesse!
This morning (while looking for my Gosh lipstain that seems to have fled) I was walking around the house with an extremely unflattering mask on my face and so I figured, let’s share this with the world!
I try to make a habbit out of putting on a mask every week, so why not share those when I do.. It might be interesting for other oily skinned people out there! I’ll make a seperate category for masks.
The Montagne Jeunesse masks have been among my favorites for a while now, mainly because I can buy them in small packets that cost me around 1.50 euros each. If you calculate how much that is per kilo, it’s not cheap. Buuut I feel less bad about these since I can buy them in little packs that don’t burn my wallet. Ahh psychology..
In amsterdam they sold these awesome trial size-packets, so I picked up a few while I was there.
Montagne Jeunesse is a brand that sells various skincare products, while focusing on natural ingredients. They don’t specialize in one skintype, instead you can choose creams and masks according to your personal skintype, mood, and how much free time you have on hand.
I think a lot of people, like myself, put great value in this. Many low- as well as high end brands have nice masks, but they do absolutely nothing on sensitive or combination to oily skin. Their range is often way too small to cater to every skintype.
Deep cleanse (yay blackheads) and moisturize your face. It should be like an awakening!
Suitable for all skintypes, even sensitive.
A bit annoying. Getting the product out and putting it on your face at the same time equals a big mess. I still prefer this over a jar though, these packets are way more hygienic.
You do get a good amount of product, this pack of 5 grams is just enough to cover my face. The normal 20 gram pack is way too much, I don’t use masks more than once a week and as my boyfriend refuses to put one on, half of it goes to waste!
Light and fresh. I can’t stand masks that make my eyes tear up. At times seriously feel like i’m putting a cloth soaked in perfume on my face.
Creamy as you can see, and no bits and bobs. Super easy to apply.
It starts off as a cream, and hardens completely after a few minutes.
I wasn’t able to smile anymore!
This is a clay mask. By hardening up, it seals your skin off from air temporarily which makes the nutrients penetrate the skin. On my combination-oily skin, these hardening masks work best at clearing out my pores and making my skin soft as a peach.
It cleansed my skin nicely, and a lot of my blackheads had dissapeared. Not all of them were gone though.
As you can see on the picture the mask stayed pretty much intact as it dried up. When using an all-clay mask it tends to draw out even more dirt. The way you can tell this, is by looking at the mask as it dries. When you notice little dots appearing all over your face, where the clay seems to have “sunken in” to your pores, that’s when it’s really getting in there and taking care of business!
However, those are not as nourishing as this smoothie mask. This one really leaves my face soft, plump and radient after I wash it off. And when I apply my moisturiser after, my skin absorbs it right away.
It would be even better if it cleansed my face completely as well. But then again I haven’t come across such a mask yet. And i’ve gone through quite a few!
This is just a simply a nice mask. This one, together with an avocado mask, are my two Montagne Jeunesse favorites.
A 20 gram mask runs for £1.09 on their website. They have an amazing website by the way, check it out here. As a customer, you’re able to select masks according to skintype, ingredients, etc. as well as see which ones are vegetarian, and vegan.
