January Beauty Awards

Hi there! Welcome to Mrs Strawberry Blonde’s January Beauty Awards – a.k.a. my monthly favourites post. I’ve chosen my top 3 from all those products that I’ve reviewed in January. And I’ve thrown in a few honourable mentions as well. Onto the favourites! 🙂

3rd place – Daily Defense Moisturizing Shampoo & Conditioner With Macadamia Oil

Daily Defense’s Macadamia Oil hair products are brilliant!

Runner-Up – Boots Ingredients Cleansing & Purifying Sheet Face Mask With Charcoal & Willow Bark

This face mask from Boots is really powerful! I’ll use it regularly from now on!

WINNER – The Crème Shop Charcoal Lemonade Fusion Sheet Mask

This face mask is a revelation. 11 stars!

Onto the honourable mentions! Imperial Leather’s Funfair Nostalgia and Enchanting Romance shower gels are wonderful. Montagne Jeunesse’s purple face masks are all-time favourites. And the Sanctuary Spa’s Intensive Heel Balm is a new favourite!

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Blueberry Blast Mud Masque & Gorgeous Grape Mud

Hi there! If you’re a fan of Montagne Jeunesse, you know that the company does new masks all the time. However, it’s likely that you also know that many of those ‘new’ masks aren’t really new. Montagne Jeunesse recycles old formulas, or they give masks new names.

So when I picked up Montagne Jeunesse’s Blueberry Blast Mud Masque and Gorgeous Grape Mud, I had a hunch that these two masks would be identical. So I compared the ingredients on the back of the sachets. Guess what – the lists of ingredients really were identical! But wait, there’s more!

When I tried those masks, I also found that they were copies of Montagne Jeunesse’s Berrylicious Mud Masque. I’m certainly not complaining because the Berrylicious mask became an instant favourite. So I’m glad to see it was repackaged twice and not discontinued!

So what’s this mask like? This mask is a clay mask. You need to leave it on for about 15 minutes before you rinse it off with water. And once you’ve done that, you’re being rewarded with clearer skin. In a nutshell, this mask really works – and it smells fantastic. Awesome stuff! From now on I’ll make sure to pick up any ‘new’ purplish Montagne Jeunesse mask that I can find!
