Product Review: Montagne Jeunesse Face Masques

From Left to Right: Passion Peel Off and Fruit Smoothie Face Masques

Back in December, I was doing some late Christmas shopping and I happened to be in Peacocks looking for some items of clothing to wear in the holiday season and I came across these Montagne Jeunesse Masques. I have been looking out for these masques for the longest time as I’ve heard so many great things about them and wanted to try them out. However I had only seen them online and they were a little pricey. So of course as soon as I saw them I grabbed them up and bought them. The were €1.50 each which I know is a little more but still totally worth it. I got the Passion Peel Off and the Fruit Smoothie Masques.

The Montagne Jeunesse Masques are good quality masques for a really decent price. They never test any of their products on animals and they always try to use natural ingredients. You can see more product information and about the brand on the Montagne Jeunesse website.

The Passion Peel Off as the name implies is a masque that you peel off your face. The masque is made from Pomegranate Pulp and Passion Flower and it has a really nice scent. I had never tried one of these peeling masques and so I was super exited to try this out. The consistency of this masque is really sticky and it has a light pomegranate color. The package contains 10ml of product.

What they say on their website:
Gently peel away dead skin with this amazing deep cleansing masque. Our Pomegranate and Passion Flower formula cleans, purifies and protects leaving your skin feeling fresh and radiant.
Recommended for Normal, Dry and T-Zone Skin.

  • Gluten Free
  • Nut Derivative Free
  • No Added Parabens

I applied a thin layer to the skin and let it sit there for about 15 minutes, at which point it had formed a dry layer over my skin, and then slowly peeled it off my skin which was a weird experience. My skin was left feeling really nice and smooth. This also has ingredients which are anti-oxidants and help protect the skin and deep clean my pores. A big bonus to these masques is their amazing smell, really fruity and sweet.

The Fruit Smoothie Masque on the other hand is a rich, thick peachy-looking masque that gives a really cooling effect to the skin. This masque is made from crushed Raspberry and Mango. The package contains 20g of product.

What they say on their website:
Bursting with healthy goodness, our thick Crushed Raspberry and Mango smoothie delight will leave you with fresher, cleansed and softer skin. Lavishly apply and treat your skin to a pore cleansing, sensational awakening.
Recommended for Normal, Dry and T-Zone Skin.

  • No Added Parabens

I applied this masque over my face in a thick layer and let it dry. Then I rinsed it off with warm water, and got a nice smooth, fresh feeling skin.

Product Review: Elf Studio Lip Balm

I have tried many lip balms as I have lips which tend to be dry and the Elf Studio Lip balm with SPF 15 is one of the best lip balm that I have. It has a minty taste to it and it makes my lips feel tingly when I apply it and it has a protection of SPF 15 added to it. The consistency is not too creamy and it is not too soft, so that when you apply it to your lips it stays on for a long time and it is also not sticky, so it is not annoying. I bought this from the Elf website here.

What they claim:
Relieves and soothes lips with a drench of moisture. SPF 15 helps to shield lips from harmful sun rays. Softens lips to prevent and temporarily protect against chapped, cracked or chafed lips.

This product is in the more pricier products of the website, but none the less it is still very affordable. It leaves a thin protective layer on my lips with no color to it, that lasts for a long time and it conditions my lips.  This product retails for €4/£3.50 on the Elf UK website and it contains 2.1g.

Product Rave: Simple Kind to Eyes Eye Make-up Remover

The Simple Eye make-up remover has been a staple for me for over a year now and I think I have gone through about five bottles so far. It is supposedly used to remove eye make-up but usually what I do is to take a cotton pad and get it moist with the product and then I start by removing my eye makeup and then proceed to rub off all the other makeup from the rest of my face. After applying this product I still wash my face, but this is optional and it is only personal preference and because I have oily skin. 

I have very sensitive skin and this product is ideal for me. It removes all the makeup, it has no oil in it, so it does not cause any breakouts and it has no perfume and color. The product has no weird smell to it and it is very gentle on the skin.

It claims to be packed with vitamins and it removes waterproof mascara (which I can confirm). This product is really affordable and it can be found in any of the local supermarkets. The bottle holds 125ml of product. I will definitely repurchase this product and so far this has been my most effective makeup remover.

No7 Total Renewal Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator Review

These past months I’ve been hearing lots of Beauty Gurus on YouTube rave about micro dermabrasion, so I was getting more and more exited about getting my hands on one of these products.  I happened to come across the No7 Total Renewal Micro-Dermabrasion Exfoliator while shopping for other stuff on eBay and I decided to give it a try.

I didn’t know what exactly to expect from this product and I hoped that it wasn’t just another face scrub with little or few particles that barely even make any difference to my skin.  However, I was not disappointed.  This product contains micro (as the name implies) aluminium oxide crystals that sweep away older surface cells, evening out the skin tone.  It is also useful against blemish-prone skin and leaves the skin feeling soft and radiant.

Aluminum Oxide Crystals takes dull looking skin and promotes new collagen growth, proteins, elastins, and help even skin discolorations which will rejuvenate the skin.  Micro-dermabrasion solves various problems of skin include aging skin, fine lines, wrinkles, acne, brown spots/pigmentation, etc.

I usually apply this in the evening, before going to bed, since this product is quite harsh it can leave your skin a little pink and I don’t want to apply makeup  immediately after applying this product, in case it irritates it.  When you apply it, you can feel that the chemicals in the product are working on your skin as you can feel a tingling sensation.  I use this product only once a week since it is so powerful, but I find that my skin is much smoother and clearer thanks to this product.

The only warnings I would give is to apply this product gently since it is quite abrasive and you don’t want to be too harsh to your skin, but the results are very satisfying!

This product retails for £11.00! Well worthed!

Boots No7 Time-Resisting Day and Night Eye Care Review

For all who have dark circles under their eyes, you know how annoying they can be to cover.  To top it all up lately the skin round my eyes has been getting really dry so I decided to try out something new.  Lately I had been using a cooling eye gel from the Body Shop to reduce the puffiness.  This is also very light and works really well to apply makeup over it.
However this does not do much for my dark circles and even more it is not that moisturizing to my drying skin.  So I decided to try out something new, comes in the Boots No.7 Time Resisting Day and Night Eye Care.
This consists of 2 products, one is a gel and is to be used during the day and the other is a cream which I have found to be really nice and moisturizing.  The products come out from a pump, each product having a pump each, giving you just the right amount for one application.  I have had this products for 2 weeks now and I am really liking it so far.  The skin is getting more moisturized and the dryness seems to be reducing.  So a big thumbs up for this product.  I got mine from ebay since there are no Boots here! Hope this was helpful!
