New Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks

Price: £1.09 each

Today, I will be talking about three new Montagne Jeunesse face masks* out of four, with the other one being Iced Crystal.

Hot Chocolate
Doesn't this one sound perfect for Winter? I love self heating masks. They're probably my favourite type of face mask actually. Combine this with the subtle scent of hot chocolate and it really does feel like you're putting the popular hot drink for cold nights on your face (that doesn't sound very nice, but trust me, it is). Be warned though, this is very dark, like chocolate sauce, so it does make a mess when you're rinsing it off. The results? My skin felt extremely cleansed and smooth, and I could no longer feel the pores on my nose.

Very Berry
This lilac number does exactly what it says on the tin packet. It left my skin very cleansed and moisturised. Because my skin was so moisturised, I had to pop a little powder on my nose in the morning, but it wasn't a problem. It did sting ever so slightly when I first applied it, but most of the face masks I've tried do this, apart from the self heating ones.

Virgin Olive
This was the mask I was least excited to try, simply because I prefer chocolate and berries over olive oil! Thankfully, the mask doesn't look like oil and is a mint green cream. I'm not keen on the scent because it smells like olives. It is only subtle though and disappears as it dries. Again, this mask left my skin very cleansed and smooth, especially around my nose area.

Before this review, I had forgotten how well face masks worked. I got it into my head that they slightly cleansed, and that was about it. Also, I've never reviewed face masks, so in the past, I didn't pay as much attention to the effects they had on my skin.
I'm in the mood to try some more now. With the face masks being £1.09 on their website (click here) and delivery only 50p (or free when you spend over £7.50), it's not going to break the bank if you indulge a little.

Just for the laughs, here is a (rubbish webcam) photo of me wearing the Hot Chocolate self heating mask:
Gorr ;)

Oh and, does anyone else scrunch their face up and pick at the mask once it's dry? I can't resist!
