I have recently gotten back into using face masks or masques as they are sometimes called. The most recent purchase is the Montagne Jeunesse Creamy Coconut mask.
It is supposed to be very hydrating due to the fact that coconut is very hydrating.
I washed my face and opened the packet to get read. The first thing I noticed is that the package is easy to open. This is not a big deal but when you look at some other products that are very difficult to open you will realize the importance of an easy to use package.
The scent is a bit mild but I did think that it smelled slightly plasticky and a little bit fake. I know it is supposed to be a creamy version of the coconut but I thought it smelled a little bit artificial.
The product itself is easy to apply and it spreads evenly and thoroughly. The one thing I must note...is that like many other face masks I think the amount in the package is too much for one face but not enough for two applications.
I left it on for the suggested 10 minutes and noticed that about a minute in the product began to tingle. The tingling stopped after a few seconds so I was no longer worried about a bad reaction.
Like all the other mud or clay masks the product did begin to tighten a bit as it dried so make sure not to get it too close to your eyes or mouth. I washed it off with warm water and it rinses easily but does have a very slightly oily feel when first coming off.
Then, just to see the effects of the mask I went to bed without applying any other moisturizer to my face.....except for the Olay Regenerist on my eye area and just around the mouth as I always do.
You can get the mask at many beauty supply or even regular stores or you can also order it online. If you use the image in this post you can go directly to Amazon and buy using my affiliate link and I will earn a referral bonus!!
