I've been a long time user of Montagne Jeunesse masques, as they're cheap and a nice little luxury - I used to have one as my treat when I was a poor student. I have tried and liked their chocolate ones before and also some of their self-warming masques. However, Ive not tried a chocolate masque that also warms, so I was really looking forward to it.
|Not edible - but it looks so good!|
The masque itself is thick and oozes out of the packet which has an easy tear strip, looking like chocolate spread and smelling just like chocolate orange - heaven! I found it easy to apply to my face, and went for it, smearing it on thickly. I actually usually get two applications from a single packet of Montagne Jeunesse masque, but although I could have saved enough for a second application, I decided to use it all up in one go. As soon as it was applied to my skin it started to warm up which is a very nice sensation, coupled with the chocolate orange smell.
I'm very slapdash with face masques and applied it all over my lips - I can confirm that, as it says on the packet, you're not supposed to eat it - it doesn't taste anything like chocolate! Once applied, I left it on for about 10 minutes, during which time it cooled down, but stayed in place on my face with no drips without drying. Then came the messy bit - removing the masque (I've used chocolate face masques before, so I was prepared)! Seriously, the product gets everywhere! I would recommend removing it in the shower so that you can just wash it all away - I also used a black flannel so it wouldn't stain my usual white one. It's easy to clean up, but for me the mess is the only downside of this product.
I was left with very clean, soft feeling skin and my skin still feels good today. I think that this is an excellent little treat at a low price, and I love the combination of the warmth and chocolate orange smell. It's definitely a winter warmer and would make a great stocking filler, particularly for chocoholics and teenagers and, well, any woman (yes, I'm thinking about Christmas already)!
As a bonus, Montagne Jeunesse masques are suitable for vegetarians and they prefer to use natural products.
Have you tried a chocolate facemask before?
Thanks for reading! xx
