~~ Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Pac ~~



I love enjoying a little “me time”, which I feel is important to us all and something I’m definitely in need of following a busy and stressful week in work. My “me time” normally consists of one hour of peace and quiet every Sunday where hubby knows that he should not disturb me and it is during this period of peace and quiet that I spoil myself with some beauty products. I own a rather large stash of items as I tend to bulk buy my favourites when they’re on offer and in amongst my face packs was Montagne Jeunesse’s Mud Pac with this review discussing my experience with using it.

We are provided with 20g of product contained within a curvy shaped sachet and as with the entire range there is a colourful image of a smiling female displayed on the front. She always seems to enjoy wearing a few bright green leaves, which are strategically positioned on each of her eyes with Mud Pac showing a few blobs of fancy looking mud and some pieces of seaweed delicately resting on top. The masque is intended to anti-stress, which is perfect for me, as I seem to become stressed rather too often, so anything that is alleged to help always sounds good to me. The image on the packet displays the face mask as vivid blue, but as natural ingredients are used for all of their products Montagne Jeunesse advise us that the colour of the contents might slightly differ. There are a few masks contained within their range that I have been rather disappointed with, but the deciding factor of this one for me was the Dead Sea mud content, which is known for its benefits to the skin.

As directed I thoroughly cleansed my face with warm water to ensure that the pores remain open and tore open the sachet along the perforations. The pale blue mask was of a fairly thick and creamy consistency and as I applied it to my skin I was immediately able to witness the authentic and calming lavender aroma, which is one of my favourite fragrances, particularly for relaxation. I would describe this face mask as wonderfully fresh as it offered coolness to my skin as I lay back and relaxed for the required 10 – 15 minutes. As a result, this would be perfect for using during the warmer weather as it definitely made my face feel cool and fresh as soon as I applied it to my skin. I was pleasantly surprised with the cool sensation, particularly as I’ve used a large number of this brand’s face masks and never before have I experienced one like this. I would describe the feeling as similar to that of drinking a cold glass of water directly after cleaning your teeth when you experience that wow factor.

I cannot admit to witnessing the aroma of fruit oils, but I’m sure I was able to detect the seaweed, particularly as I’ve used The Body Shop facial products containing this ingredient. I find that the 20g sachets often provide too much product for one use and as my husband didn’t want to partake in using the remaining mask I decided to slap it thickly onto my face. As I lay back and allowed the face mask to work its magic I inhaled the beautiful vapours and could feel the lavender aroma sending me to a very calming and relaxing place. A problem I sometimes experience with face masks is that I experience a slight stinging sensation, particularly on my cheeks, but using this was totally problem free and it dried in approx fifteen minutes. I would have left the mask on for longer, but an unbearable itch on my forehead meant I had to remove it with warm water, which was a relatively easy task. The only problem I find with these masks is that due to their thick consistency they tend to gather under my long fingernails.

I always complete my face mask regime with a splash of cold water to close the pores and gently pat my face dry with a towel. My skin felt fully cleansed and rid of any grime and impurities as well as being incredibly soft and smooth and what I loved is that a delicate lavender aroma was evident for a good hour after removal. Although my skin felt moisturised I chose to apply a moisturising product, particularly as I frequently suffer with dry patches on my cheeks and chin. I suffered no adverse reactions when using this mask, which has since become another firm favourite of mine and as a result, I have made further purchases. As a result, Mud Pac receives my full recommendation together with five stars.

There is a rather lengthy list of ingredients and whilst I do not intend listing them all I would advise that the mask contains seaweed extracts, lavender oil, fruit oils and Dead Sea salt. The product has not been tested on animals and Montagne Jeunesse products carry the little rabbit logo to evidence that they are BUAV approved. The sachet can be recycled once empty.

Montagne Jeunesse face masks tend to retail at around £1.10 - £1.20 per sachet and are available in stores such as Boots, Home Bargains, Superdrug and Asda. However, they are frequently available on a 3 for 2 offer.

I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
