~Dead Sea Face Spa~
Whilst the majority of Montagne Jeunesse face masks are liquid based, they currently offer a range of 3 fabric face masks - Aloe Vera, Tea Tree and Dead Sea. I will be discussing my use of the Dead Sea mask.
This mask is presented in a sachet and there is one, single use fabric mask provided. It is suitable for a wide range of skin types including those who have sensitive and dry skin. The mask is vegetarian friendly and BUAV approved. The fabric mask is soaked in a tonic which is enriched with sea salt, menthol and seaweed extracts. Montagne Jeunesse claim that this mask will leave your skin feeling smooth and re-hydrated.
To use, cleanse skin and remove make up. Place the mask over your face ensuring the mouth section has been turned upwards, pat down and relax. Once 5-10 minutes have passed, remove and use your fingertips to massage in any excess tonic that has been left on the skin before using some cold water and patting dry.
~Price and Availability~
This single use face mask can be bought in stores such as Asda and Boots. It is also stocked on the company website www.montagnejeunesse.com. It is priced at around £1.30.
Whilst I cleanse and moisturise daily, my skin can often be left looking a little tired. I favour Montagne Jeunesse face masks but until reading a review from Vampireprincess on here, I wasn't aware of the benefits of a fabric mask! A liquid mask isn't always practical and at least with a fabric mask you can remove it if the door is knocked! I chose the Dead Sea mask during a shopping trip to Asda recently. It was reduced to 75p alongside others so I stocked up on my favourites.
I don't get much time to myself at the moment but when I do, I like to treat my skin and rejuvenate it a little. Pinning back my hair and splashing some water over my face, I was ready to relax on the sofa for 10 minutes with this face mask. The mask itself is really damp when removed from the packet. It is made from a soft material cloth that feels a bit like a thick baby wipe and has a lovely marine like scent which is a little overpowering at first.
Applying this mask is very easy. It is a good size and round in shape. I smoothed it across my forehead, nose, cheeks and chin and it fitted perfectly. Whilst recommended that you lie down when using this mask, it does 'cling' to the skin and stays in place if walking from the bathroom to the living room for example. The appearance of the mask is somewhat cool and calming as it is white with blue wave images on it. There is a large opening for each eye and the mouth and also a small 'flap' for the nose area to ensure you can breathe!
The effects of this mask are brilliant from the moment it is applied to my skin. I lay down and felt completed relaxed and chilled out. The tonic on the mask started to seep into my skin and my entire face felt refreshed. The scent of the mask isn't too heavy when lying down. I felt my eyes nipping a little at first as the scent was strong but it settled to reveal a pleasant and refreshing sea like smell which was favourable.
I found it benefical to pat the mask down every few minutes to ensure I was reaping the full benefits of that lovely tonic. I also found this mask to be a fantastic stress reliever as my mind seemed settled and I could simply relax and feel less agitated. The fresh sea scent and general damp feel of the mask remained noticeable even after the 10minutes of relaxing had passed. It was easy to remove and dispose off. A small amount of tonic remained on my skin leaving it moist and this absorbed with a quick massage in. I rinsed and patted dry.
~Admiring The Results~
Despite having dry and sensitive skin, I experienced no nasty side effects from using this fabric mask. My skin was soft to the touch and visually improved. This mask gave my skin a brilliant boost and my skin was left with a radiant, healthy appearance which I really loved. It was tingly fresh and my mood was generally uplifted too which was an added bonus. I didn't feel the need to slap on lots of moisturiser afterwards either.
All in all, I can highly recommend this fabric mask. It is effective yet gentle, smells gorgeous and isn't too expensive either. I would recommend it for morning use as it really invigorates the skin and mind. I will buy this again for giving my skin a healthy boost though will continue to use the liquid masks for deep down hydrated. I cannot recommend this highly enough so give it a try!
Thanks for reading :)
Summary: I will buy again!
