100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Choc Orange Sauna

Hi there! Today’s post is about a face mask I picked up recently – Montagne Jeunesse Choc Orange Sauna.

This is a self-heating mask that promises to open pores to give skin a deep cleanse. Montagne Jeunesse recommends you leave it on for 10-15 minutes before washing it off.

I’ve now tried this mask, and I’m disappointed. I bought this mask recently, but most of the product had turned into a solid mass inside the sealed sachet.

I was able to use some of the product, however, the self-heating effect was non-existent, and the mask didn’t really do anything for my skin at all.

The sweet chocolate-orange fragrance was still spot on. But it didn’t matter.

All in all, I’m disappointed. I think it’s possible this is old stock. However, I would expect the manufacturer to be aware of the rather limited shelf life of their products, and I would also expect them to print a use by date on such products.

Montagne Jeunesse Choc Orange Sauna is available as 15g. I paid 90p. This mask is approved by the Vegetarian Society, and it’s certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).

Nivea Refining Peel Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s short post is about Nivea‘s Refining Peel Off Mask for combination skin. 🙂

This face mask promises to exfoliate skin gently, to remove sebum and to reduce shine for several hours.

It works like any other peel-off mask. Just apply it to your face, let it dry for 15-20 minutes, then peel it off.

How’s the mask? I think it’s one of the best peel-off masks I’ve ever used. It removes dead skin cells as well as grease and grime with ease. It’s really powerful!

Nivea‘s Refining Peel Off Mask for combination skin is available as 2x 5ml. I paid £1. I will definitely go back to Poundland to buy more of these masks!

Bling Pop Soothing Face Mask With Charcoal

Hi there! Today’s post is about Bling Pop‘s Soothing Face Mask With Charcoal. This face mask promises to moisturise and to soothe skin. This mask works like any other regular sheet mask – place it on your face, leave it on for 15-20 minutes, then massage the excess into your skin. I always leave these masks on until they’re dry. I just can’t bin a sheet mask that’s still dripping with serum. I hate being wasteful.

How’s the mask? I think it’s pretty awesome! It feels deeply hydrating and it has a soothing effect. I’ve used a few of these masks already, and they helped turn angry skin into calm and happy skin in no time. I’ve also noticed that my skin tone looks brighter and more even every time I use one of these masks. In summary, if you see these masks at your local TK Maxx (or wherever), you really should pick them up!

Bling Pop‘s Soothing Face Mask With Charcoal is available as a pack of 10 sheet masks for £5.99 (TK Maxx). What an incredible bargain!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Cucumber & Lime Crush

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse‘s Cucumber & Lime Crush Peel Off Face Mask.

This face mask promises to lift off dead skin cells and impurities, and to revive skin.

It works like any other peel-off mask: Apply it to your face, let it dry for about 15 minutes, and simply peel it off (then wash your face).

How’s the mask? I think this is an average face mask. Montagne Jeunesse has done a number of much better peel-off masks, so I don’t know why they keep pushing this one (this is a repackaged version of their cucumber peel-off mask).

In addition, this mask smells strongly of alcohol. It’s best to hold your breath when you apply this mask to your nose!

Based on my experience, I wouldn’t recommend this face mask. Like I said, there are quite a few great Montagne Jeunesse peel-off masks, but this isn’t one of them.

Montagne Jeunesse Cucumber & Lime Crush is available as 10ml for 90p at Primark. This face mask is certified cruelty-free (it carries the Leaping Bunny logo).

Garnier Skin Active Volcano Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier‘s Skin Active Volcano Mask with volcanic rock and clay.

This is a self-heating face mask that promises to give skin a deep cleanse to make it look smoother and less shiny. It also claims to make pores less visible.

How’s the product? I’m not impressed. The self-heating effect is negligible, and I didn’t see any results. My skin didn’t feel or look cleaner, and my pores looked just liked they did before.

My husband tried this mask too. He said using this mask was a waste of time. I agree! If you’re looking for a good self-heating mask, try Montagne Jeunesse!

Garnier‘s Skin Active Volcano Mask is available as 8ml. I paid £1 (Poundland).

Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Mask which I picked up at TK Maxx. This face mask promises to hydrate and renew delicate skin and to control oil for a natural glow. In addition to charcoal, this mask contains hyaluronic acid, botanical extracts and oils.

Is this sheet mask any good? I think it’s alright, but that’s about it. I don’t think it helps with oil control at all, but it hydrates my skin nicely for about half a day. If you’re looking for an effective, purifying sheet mask with charcoal, try Boots’ own brand mask or try The Crème Shop’s sheet mask.

Precision Beauty Charcoal Face Masks are available as packs of 5 masks for £4.99 (TK Maxx).

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Purple Acai Peel Off

Hi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse‘s Purple Acai Peel Off face mask.

This peel-off face mask is like any other peel-off mask. Apply it, let it dry for about 15 minutes, then peel it off, and wash off any residue with warm water.

So how’s the mask? I think it’s one of Montagne Jeunesse’s best peel-off masks. I found it very effective, and I think it even brightened my skin. The lovely fragrance is an added bonus!

Montagne Jeunesse‘s Purple Acai Peel Off face mask is exclusive to Primark where you can pick it up for 90p. In addition, this face mask carries the Leaping Bunny logo which means it’s certified cruelty-free!
