I’ve said it before and I will say it again: my number 1 skin care product is a good mask. If you haven’t used one before, let me assure you that you will be addicted. The Montagne Jeunesse masks are what first turned me on to masks and skin care in general, believe it or not. They were like a luxurious surprise that I would get when I was younger for Stocking Stuffers or as a ‘spa day’ treat. At that time, I was most infatuated with the ‘peel off’ masks such as the Green Tea and Ginger one I received from FarleyCo Beauty.
Very generously, FarleyCo sent me a few different Montagne Jeunesse masques to try out: The Green Tea Peel Off Face Masque** as mentioned, the Dead Sea Mud Spa Masque**, the Clean Up Mud Masque**, a New 2 Step Dry Skin Masque** and the 2 Step Shine Control masque**. The 2 Step masques are really cool because not only do you get the relaxing masque, but you receive another treatment as well such as a serum or moisturizer. I jumped all over the Shine Control masque to see if it really could help with my oily shine as that is one major problem I have.
As with all masks, first comes a cleanse. I used the Murad Essential-C cleanser, as usual, then applied the mask. I can not describe to you how fantastically creamy and soothing this was. Can you tell? I believe this is the Deep Cleaning Mud Mask which are my usual go-to but none have been so smooth. Very relaxing and the smell was amazing. I should mention too that these masks are very generous. I am able to get two uses out of them, no problem, unless of course, they are fabric.
The masque takes about 10-15 minutes to dry, so my favourite activity in that time is to take a bath for some ultimate relaxing time. Simply set a timer for 15 minutes and when it goes off, rinse the masque off. As you can see, it really sucked the dirt and oil from my oiliest zones, very similar to the Glam Glow Supermud mask.
After washing it off and applying step 2 which in this case was a Balancing Moisturizer, this is what my skin looked like. Not perfect, of course, but it was so smooth and relaxed. This moisturizer was a HUGE plus for me. It was so creamy but within minutes, absorbed into my face. My pores felt tighter, my skin was significantly softer and yes, even a bit less oily. I am sure the more often you use it, the more results you can see.
Overall, these masks have always been amazing in my books. I need to check out more like this Tea Tree Spa Pore Cleansing Fabric Facial. They range from $1.99-$3.99 on FarleyCo.ca for the single masques, but you can purchase tubes for $5.49 as well! Seriously tempted to buy them all.

Note: as mentioned, FarleyCo did provide me with the masques but as always, all opinions are my own!
