I have recently been contacted by Montagne Jeunesse who wanted to feature some of FashionFake’s posts on their new Facebook app designed to give beauty lovers something to do whilst they pamper themselves. I checked out the app and found that there is three sections of 10, 15 and 20 minutes with related posts from beauty and fashion bloggers collected for you to read (check out FashionFake styling in the 15 minute section!). Another feature that I like is the timer on the right hand side of the app that counts down how long you have to wait until you can rinse the mask off!
Anyway, after chatting about the new app, Montagne Jeunesse kindly offered me to review some of their facemasks, and I took the opportunity to find out more about the brand and what they stand for.
Montagne Jeunesse was established in 1985 by Greg Butcher, who was a vegetarian and wanted to set up a company with minimum impact on any living creatures. All of the products by Montagne Jeunesse are vegetarian and have been approved by the Vegetarian Society and the BUAV - British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection, and is also a member of Cosmetic Industry Coalition for Animal Welfare, making them one of the most eco and animal friendly brands in the UK, which is great news for any passionate animal lover! Even for non-activists, it’s always nice to know that what you’re using was made without harming a creature. Even the headquarters of Montagne Jeunesse is in an eco friendly business park in South Wales, where they have been since 2005.
The company practices its eco friendly motto day to day – for example they use all the shredded paper in the office to pack fragile goods when shipping! It feels so good to read about big brands that take care of the environment and the welfare of our little (and big) friends.
Reading about the company made me appreciate Montagne Jeunesse even more, and trust their products to be natural and generally good for your skin. So, I proceeded with testing out the masks with even more faith in the brand than ever.
The first mask I tested was the Tea Tree and Spearmint that I was very curious about. I’ve never tried a mask that was like cotton and just sat on your face – literally like a facemask. I like the idea as you immediately think there’s going to be less mess when applying something like this! All you do is cleanse your face, make sure it’s dry and then place the Tea Tree and Spearmint mask (which is cut out in the shape of a face, didn’t dare post a photo of this on my blog as young children might get scared but if you’re curious have a look on my Instagram here), sit down and relax for 15 minutes. Tea tree is a really good mask for anyone who suffers from spots or blemishes; it calms your skin whilst drying nasty pimples. Mint gives this mask a cool and refreshing effect that immediately wakes your skin up and I found it really brightens it too! So after 15 minutes remove the mask and massage the remaining oils into your face, then rinse and tone. Finish off with your favourite moisturiser and your skin is cleansed and refreshed in 15 easy and mess free minutes!
I really enjoyed using this facemask due to the mess free and easy application and the zingy, refreshing feeling after use. I found that my skin was brighter and more awake, whilst reducing the redness of blemishes.
The second mask I tried was the Red Earth Clay Spa with pulped pomegranate. The Clay Spa range is new to Montagne Jeunesse so I was very excited to see what this was like! I thought it would be just a clay mask, but this was applied just like the first one, so it came in a face shaped cloth. This one was a little messier due to the clay liquids it is soaked in, so make sure you apply this over the skin or even easier, when you’re having a soak in the bath. This mask was a completely different feel from the Tea Tree and Spearmint – it was soft and warm. I felt like my skin was nourished and polished in a very gentle way. I’d suggest this for people who have dry or sensitive skin, as my face didn’t feel tight at all after applying the Red Earth Clay Spa mask. Follow the same application procedures as before and take the time to just relax whilst the mask works it’s magic!
The last mask was Passion Peel Off with pomegranate extracts and I absolutely LOVE peel off masks. There's nothing quite as satisfying as peeling a whole layer of elastic skin from your face, and it's a brilliant deep clean.  After I peeled the mask off, my skin was red but I realised that's just the colour the residue of the mask leaves, so after a quick rinse and toner my skin was bright and perky. I wouldn't advise to use peel off masks if your skin is sore, very dry or damaged - try and calm it down with soft and moisturising treatment prior to using peel off masks. 
I absolutely love the Montagne Jeunesse masks, they're eco and wallet friendly, as well as being really good for your skin! Check out their range at local supermarkets and drug stores, or visit the Montagne Jeunesse website do more mask flavours!
