Montagne Jeunesse - Hot Chocolate Orange Face Masque

Well apparently this week is National Chocolate Week - there's a week for everything now isn't there, but this is one that appeals to me!  Anyway, to celebrate, Montagne Jeunesse have released a new luxurious hot chocolate face masque and they sent me one to try for myself.

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

I would have found it really hard not to eat it! I don't do facemasks at home but I'm tempted to give this one a go. xx
