|Value for money|
As you are no doubt aware, I am a great fan of Montagne Jeunesse and have probably tried and tested every face masque this manufacturer has to offer. As advised in my previous face masque reviews I always try to grab an hour’s “me time” every Sunday afternoon where I pamper away the stresses and strains of the previous week. Whilst I have yet to discover a product that turns me into a gorgeous supermodel I always enjoy using the various products; the majority of which I find extremely favourable and give me skin that most needed pick me up. I tend to purchase the face masques when they are on offer whereby I am able to buy three products for the price of two and this review discusses Deep Cleansing Passion Peel Off. I apologise for yet another Montagne Jeunesse review, but as I am sure you might have guessed, my “me time” is important to me and I absolutely adore this range of products.
Fortunately, the majority of face masques within the Montagne Jeunesse range have a small perforated area on the upper section, which allows the sachet to be easily opened and the contents squeezed out. However, for some unknown reason, the perforations have not been included on all of the sachets, so I use a clean pair of scissors, as otherwise the sachet tears down the middle and squirts out from various areas whilst making a rather sticky mess in the process! The masque should be applied to a cleansed and dry face, so my first task is to tie back my long hair and clip my fringe onto the top of my head. I then carry out the first part of my normal skin care routine where I cleanse in preparation for using Passion Peel Off. As soon as I cut open the sachet the delightful an extremely fruity aroma of the pomegranate greeted my nasal passages and was soon followed by a delicate, but most evident fragrance of passionflower. I gently squeezed the sachet onto my fingers and quickly applied the red gel-like consistency face masque to my face whilst taking extra care to avoid the nose and mouth areas and ensured that I was not taking it as far as my hair line. I always try my hardest to also avoid my eyebrows, as there have been so many occasions whilst removing the set masque that several hairs have been pulled out! Whilst Montagne Jeunesse state that the colours of the product may differ, I was a little surprised that the masque was red and not purple as in the image on the front of the sachet, so I’m a little unsure of what product the smiling female is actually wearing, as it’s definitely not this one! One thing I find with the majority of Montagne Jeunesse Face Masques is that there is too much product contained in one sachet, so I usually have enough for a further application. However, I would advise that Passion Peel Off provides only enough for one application.I was always a fan of Avon peel off face masques and can vividly remember using them during my teens in the 80’s as I attempted to make myself look adorable to whoever I fancied at that particular time! Both the appearance and texture of peel off masques always remind me of gelatine, which hasn’t quite set and whilst this masque smells absolutely adorable and good enough to eat, unfortunately, it is not edible! The directions for use are that we now relax for 15 – 20 minutes until the masque is fully dry, so the perfect excuse to lie down on a comfy bed on a Sunday afternoon! A problem I would experience when using Avon peel off masques was an initial burning, but I cannot state that this is something I experience with Montagne Jeunesse and the only sensation I experienced was a little tightness to the side of each of my eyes due to the fact that the masque was starting to dry. Fortunately, I was left in total peace and quiet for the time it took for this masque to dry, as more than often not, hubby decides to yell up the stairs, which results in me answering as best I can through gritted teeth thus causing the drying masque to become saggy and loosen around the mouth area! Hubby has learned rather quickly that my “me time” is just that – ME! After approximately 20 minutes the masque had totally dried and this is the part that I love with peel off masques, particularly if I can remove them in one attempt, which is often a rarity. As we should not drag anything downwards on our skin due to the risk of creating lines and wrinkles, I always use my nail to pick a small area around my neck and gently pull. The masque was extremely easy to remove and peeled away almost in one piece, other than a few areas around my brows and hairline. The skin should then be rinsed with warm water and I always finish off with a splash of cold to close the pores.
I always find peel off masques a little drying on the skin, particularly around the neck and cheek areas, so I always apply a little of my favourite moisturiser directly after use. Whilst I wasn’t expecting miracle results, my skin felt and looked cleansed and although it was initially a little red, this soon settled down and gave me a lovely glow. Over the last couple of weeks I have been prone to the odd spot and I have put this down to the fact that I have been feeling a little run down. Whilst the spots are those under the skin ones that never tend to surface, they are nevertheless annoying and I am of the opinion that the ingredients contained within this masque calmed them down. I can only speak highly of Passion Peel Off, as it’s of a very high quality with a gorgeous fragrance and I genuinely feel that it actually works. Over the years I have probably spent an absolute fortune on various products that promise the world yet provide little or no results. However, other than a few disappointments I am generally very happy with the Montagne Jeunesse range and consequently, this masque receives 5 stars from me together with a huge recommendation. I have used this particularly masque on many occasions and it has never failed to deliver.
I am not a believer of copying endless lists of ingredients into my reviews unless I believe that this is anything significant that the consumer should be aware of, such as warnings. However, I have scrutinised the rather lengthy list and those that stand out to me are the extract from the raspberry and cranberry fruits and the passionflower extract.
