100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Raspberry Smoothie

upload-4Hi there! Today’s post is about this “exclusive” Montagne Jeunesse Raspberry Smoothie face mask (Primark, 90p!).

This face mask promises an antioxidant boost for fresher and softer skin. Does it work? I think this mask is OK. It’s like a regular clay mask.

I think this mask cleansed my skin well. However, I didn’t like its fragrance at all. The mango & raspberry fragrance smells like a cheap multi-vitamin juice.

There’s nothing wrong with the quality of this face mask, but I won’t buy it again because of its smell.

Montagne Jeunesse’s Raspberry Smoothie face mask is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo and it’s approved by the Vegetarian Society.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Grapefruit Sauna

upload-5Hi there! Montagne Jeunesse’s Grapefruit Sauna (Primark, 90p) is the star of today’s post. 🙂

This face mask promises to gently warm skin for a fresh and radiant glow. This sounds great! But is the mask really any good?

Yes, the mask is awesome! The warming effect is very pleasant. And it’s only warm, it’s not hot, I promise!

I also enjoyed the fragrance which is probably the purest and most authentic pink grapefruit fragrance I’ve ever smelled. It’s gorgeous!

And what about the skin benefits? I didn’t see a difference, but I felt a difference. My skin felt super clean and clear. Fantastic!

So would I recommend this face mask? Yes, absolutely!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Buttercream Dream Mud Face Mask

upload-1Hi there! Just a few days ago I picked up a few Montagne Jeunesse face masks at Primark. And I tried one of these masks today.

So let me tell you more about this Montagne Jeunesse Buttercream Dream Mud face mask which claims to leave skin feeling refreshed, cleansed and smooth.

When I applied the mask, I noticed that it contained exfoliating beads. And we’re not talking about those nasty ground walnut shells or crushed apricot stones. This mask contains face-friendly exfoliating beads – and they really made my skin feel clean and smooth!

I think this mask is excellent. It even reminds me of my former favourite face mask (it was my favourite before Superdrug ruined it by adding walnut shell powder, a.k.a. juglans regia shell powder).

Now onto the fragrance! Whilst this mask is supposed to be “vanilla & honey” scented, I don’t think it smells particularly sweet or yummy. But the random (and non-descript) sweetish fragrance isn’t annoying, so I’m not complaining.

I would certainly recommend this face mask! It’s 90p at Primark – so it’s rather cheap. In addition, Montagne Jeunesse’s Buttercream Dream Mud face mask is certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo and it’s approved by the Vegetarian Society.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Manuka Honey Peel Off Mask

Hi there! Just a few days ago I tried Montagne Jeunesse’s 7th Heaven Manuka Honey Peel-Off Face Mask for the first time.

I think this mask is fantastic, and I know I’ll buy it again! Now let me tell you why I like this face mask so much. 🙂

OK, this mask is like every other peel-off mask out there. You apply it, you let it dry, you peel it off (which is awesome fun), then you wash your face – and that’s it! Job done!

Now I like this mask because it made my face look refreshed and considerably clearer within minutes. It made my face look and feel great – it was that simple. And believe me, it was hard to resist the urge to touch my face all the time… 😀

I also loved the warm honey fragrance – it was delicious! If you like the scent of honey, you’ll love this face mask! So yeah, get it!

Montagne Jeunesse’s 7th Heaven Manuka Honey Peel-Off Face Mask is available for £1 (give or take a few pence – depending on where you shop). This face mask is approved by the Vegetarian Society and by BUAV. It carries the Leaping Bunning logo which means that it’s certified cruelty-free!

I wouldn’t recommend… Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Charcoal Masque

montagne jeunesse charcoal maskHi there! Not too long ago Montagne Jeunesse launched its new 7th Heaven Charcoal Masque. And I picked it up for 85p at my local Asda.

I’ve now tried this face mask, and I regret that I have to say that I don’t like it. And here’s why.

When I applied the mask, it felt scratchy and unpleasant.

A quick scan of the ingredients on the back of the sachet revealed that this mask contains crushed walnut shell powder – which is OK for the body, but not for the face.

The reason is that crushed walnut shells (and crushed apricot stones) are too harsh for sensitive facial skin. They cause tiny cuts on the surface of skin – which is great for bacteria but not for your skin.

Anyway, now I’ve also noticed the walnut image on the front of the sachet – but unfortunately I missed it when I bought the mask. I can only guess that I was too distracted by the charcoal eyes…

OK, let’s get back to what happened when I used the mask… as it was scratchy, I had to take extra special care when I applied it. And I was extra, extra careful when I washed it off. So I didn’t get any exfoliating ‘benefits’ from this mask – but I also noticed that there were no other benefits. My skin felt super dry afterwards – and that was it.

Based on this I wouldn’t recommend this face mask. I wouldn’t recommend it if you paid me. If you want to know more about the abrasive exfoliants I mentioned, check out my friend Janine’s brilliant post about why she threw away her St Ives face scrub.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Cucumber Peel-Off Mask

Montagne Jeunesse Cucumber Peel OffHi there! Today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse’s Cucumber Peel-Off Mask.

I know opinions on this one are mixed, and now that I’ve tried this mask, I have to say my own opinion is mixed too!

Let’s start with the good: This mask is like every other peel-off mask. You apply it, you let it dry, you peel it off, you rinse off the residue – and then you can admire your clear and soft skin.

Another good thing is that this face mask is 100% cruelty-free – it’s BUAV-approved and it carries the Leaping Bunny logo!

However, the mask stinks. Big time! I’d describe its smell as boozy – and very strong. I can’t even smell a hint of cucumber.

If this mask were much better than other random peel-off masks, I might be able to get over its unpleasant smell. However, it’s not better than other masks, so I won’t buy this one again. If you’re looking for a nice peel-off face mask, have a look at all the peel-off masks I’ve tried and reviewed.

If you’d like to comment, please feel free to do so. And thank you for reading! 🙂

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Pineapple Peel Off Mask

Montagne Jeunesse Pineapple Peel OffHi there! Let me tell you about my new favourite peel-off face mask, Montagne Jeunesse Pineapple Peel-Off.

This face mask works like all the other peel-off face masks out there – you apply it, you let it dry, and then you peel it off.

I think this mask leaves my skin feeling soft, clean and refreshed – which is what I expected.

However, I didn’t expect to fall in love with the fragrance. This mask smells absolutely delicious!

So if you love the aroma of pineapples, you need to try this mask. If you’re looking for a new peel-off mask, you need to try this one. If you’ve never had a peel-off mask, you should try it!

Another thing that’s great is that this mask is suitable for vegetarians, and that it’s BUAV-approved – it carries the Leaping Bunny logo which means this product is cruelty-free! So there’s no reason not to try this amazing face mask. 🙂
