Montagne Jeunesse Anti-Stress Cucumber Peel-Off Mask

Hi Girls,

Montagne Jeunesse Anti Stress Cucumber Peel Off Mask

I am back with another review.  As part of my weekly pampering, I try to use a face mask every week.  I have tried many masks before from different brands, but this week, I tried a face mask from Montagne Jeunesse to wear as a face mask while tending to my feet (DIY Pedicure).  I haven’t used a peel-off mask in ages now, the last time I used a facial peel-off mask was when I was in school. The brand I used then was Everyuth; however, peel-off masks are not as easily available as mud, cream or cloth masks here. Since I have been trying some of the Montagne Jeunesse masks recently, I wanted to try out the cucumber peel-off mask by them. I checked out reviews and the cucumber peel-off had received more positive reviews than the other MJ peel-off masks.

When I compare the prices of Montagne Jeunesse in different countries, through posts by other IMBB’ians, I feel they are more expensive here in Australia. A single sachet costs AUD 3.95, so when I saw this pack of three for $10 and because I was looking for peel-off masks, I bought this. Additionally, peel-off masks are a bit less messy than mud/cream masks, so I can use them during travel as well.

Product Description:

We have used juiced cucumbers and lots of citrus goodness for our cucumber peel-off masque, to give your skin a blast of freshness and to help remove dead skin and impurities. Peel to reveal a fresh and revived complexion.

  • Suitable For Vegans.
  • Gluten Free.
  • Dairy Free.
  • No Added Parabens.

Quantity:

10 ml.

Please note mud/self heating and cream masks from this brand come in 15 ml/15 g sachets for the same price and can be used more than once, but the peel-off masks come in 10 ml sachets and can be used only once to get the proper peel-off effect.

Key Ingredients:

Cucumber, Ginseng, Jasmine, Vitamin E, Evening Primrose.

Ingredients

List of Ingredients:

Suitable For:

Combination, Oily and normal skin.

Directions For Use:

Cleanse face and dry. Apply thinly and evenly over face and neck with fingertips, avoiding eyes, lips and hair. Relax for 10-20 minutes or when totally dry gently peel off masque (never pull) wash off any stuck bits with water. Pat dry. Use weekly.

Warning: Natural ingredients may vary in colour. Like all toiletries, these masques are best kept out of reach of children. Avoid eyes. Test for irritancy before use. For external use only.

My Experience with Montagne Jeunesse Anti-Stress Cucumber Peel-Off Mask:

I took the product out of the sachet and started applying hoping that this sachet will last for two uses, but I needed the whole sachet for my face and neck. Yes guys, please do not ignore the neck area, even if the lady in the sachet has it only on her face.  The product is of light green colour and is of a light gel like texture, reminds me of gelatine.  This has a very strong smell, let me warn you, and it isn’t overly tempting. Does not smell like any of the ingredients. All the MJ masks that I have tried smell like the ingredients, but this one has a weird medicinal smell.  The mask spreads easily, but stings for the first few minutes.  The product is quite strong, so it is hard on the eyes for a few minutes as well. Of course, we avoid masks around the eye area, but since this one is strong, it is hard on the eyes, but goes away after a few minutes. After drying, I expected to look like the lady in the sachet, but this mask does not turn into white colour after drying. It dries into a colourless mask.

Swatch

I left it on for 20 minutes and it came off quite easily when dried.  I washed my face and neck well and patted it dry.  My skin was definitely clearer, as in I can feel all the dirt, grime and dead skin has been removed. This didn’t make my skin dry or make the dry patches in my skin worse. My skin felt softer too. However, I didn’t see much of a difference as the “Sensuous Spice” mask. The brightness this mask gave me did not last a long while. However, even if it smelt strong, it didn’t irritate my skin or break me out.

Pros of Montagne Jeunesse Anti-Stress Cucumber Peel-Off Mask:

  • Like all MJ products, this mask is vegetarian and is not tested on animals.
  • Contains natural, beneficial ingredients and the peel-off technique gets rid of dirt and grime stuck in the pores.
  • Did not irritate or breakout my skin.
  • Does not contain parabens.
  • Gives an anti-stress effect.
  • Makes skin temporarily lighter and brighter.
  • Storage is not a problem as one sachet can be used once only.

Cons of Montagne Jeunesse Anti-Stress Cucumber Peel-Off Mask:

  • Quite pricey, if you consider a $3.95 AUD sachet for one-time use only.
  • Does not give lasting results.
  • The smell is quite strong, I didn’t mind, but might be a huge turn-off for others.
IMBB Rating:
3.75/5.  My reasons for giving a lower rating than other MJ masks are price for lesser quantity, fragrance and the effect being quite short. There might be cheaper peel-off masks available in India, which work the same way.

Will I Repurchase Montagne Jeunesse Anti-Stress Cucumber Peel-Off Mask?

I might end up buying this again, as there aren’t many other brands of peel-off masks available in Australia. However, will look out for other brands first. I also feel peel-offs shouldn’t be used too often, so if I use a peel-off one weekend, I will try to use either a mud/cream based mask next week.

I am now looking at ones that will work well in summer :)
Any suggestions?

Hi Dee,

For summer, I think the cloth masks are the best(anything from MJ ) ,…..cooling and refreshing …..

I think the “face food ” range you are using is also good for summer.

And if you haven’t tried this cucumber one already, it is really good for summer…I would recommend the freeman pinaapple enzyme one as well.

Hi Aarthi,

They have a special range for mature and pigmented skin called “renew you”.In that they have pore refining as well as microdermabrasion masks ,I dont know how they are though, availability in India is a issue.

For dry skin I would say very berry, strawberry souffle are more suitable. MJ would say most of their masks are suitable for any kind of skin, but it is up to us to be careful and not use peel off,self heating or mud masks if your skin is too dry or sensitive.

I have oily/combination and used very berry mask as it said it was suitable for almost anytype of skin as it is cream based and does not dry on your skin,…it worked fine for me .
