Montagne Jeunesse Clay Spas Face Masque Review

Thursday, January 16, 2014

DISCLOSURE:  I received a free Montagne Jeunesse Red Earth Clay Spa Face Mask from Influenster to try and review.  My opinions are my own.

I've only really started trying to take care of my skin in the past year or two.  I've started trying to wash my face twice a day and moisturizing.  I've started using toner and eye creams.  One thing I hadn't tried are face masks.

Luckily, I received a pretty cool new face mask from Montagne Jeunesse in my Violet VoxBox from Influenster.  Montagne Jeunesse is based in the UK and has a large line of skincare products, from face masks to body scrubs and lip balms.  I received the Red Earth Clay Spa Facial Masque.

The Clay Spa masks are unlike any other facial masks I've seen.  These masks are made of a bamboo fabric that are infused with specially sourced clay.  They provide a deep clean and are made with natural ingredients and are as eco-friendly as possible.  The Red Earth Clay Spa mask is made with Mediterranean Clay, spicy Cinnamon and pulped Pomegranates.

The mask was pretty easy to use.  The directions are printed on the back: Cleanse, Apply, Relax for 10-15 minutes, Massage and Rinse.  Here I am with my face freshly washed, before applying the mask.  (Do you like my headband?  You can read about it in my Goody Athletique Headband review!)

Since I've never used a face mask before, I wasn't sure what to expect.  Inside the sachet, the face mask is folded up.  It's pretty wet inside.  It has a strong smell.  It's not bad, but it's also not something I'd want to keep smelling over and over.  Not offensive, but my husband (who took some of the pictures) noticed it.  Here's what the mask looks like:

I'm glad I put this mask on at night, when all the kids have gone to bed.  I look pretty scary with it on!  Here I am trying to put it on:

The mask is pretty big and I guess my face is small.  It was bunched up in a lot of places and I wasn't sure if it was even applied correctly.  Here's one picture with it on.  Scary!  There's no looking cute with this on.

I kept it on for about 10 minutes, but didn't really relax.  My face felt tight as the clay dried, so I couldn't talk much.  I couldn't eat anything either.  So, I just sat there, looking at my email on my phone.  Not too fun.  When time was up, I went ahead and massaged the mask as instructed.  Then, I wasn't sure what to do next.  The instructions say rinse.  Do I peel it off?  I wasn't sure... but that's what I did.  I peeled it off and rinsed off the remnants of the clay.

My face felt really clean and tight.  My husband said it looked like my cheekbones were higher.  I'm not sure about that.  My face did feel pretty dry, so I slathered on some moisturizer, too.

Would you recommend it?
I would.  It's convenient to have the clay infused into a fabric mask.  I like that it uses natural ingredients and it did leave my face really cleansed.

How much does it cost?  It retails for $2.49.

Where can I buy it?    Available at beauty supply stores, like Ulta, mass merchandisers, like Walmart and online retailers.
