I am an ardent fan of Montagne Jeunesse masks and always have a few in stock for some DIY weekend pampering. I recently purchased a few products from this brand and most of them were repurchases – but I will be reviewing the new masks. I used this mask – Manuka honey peel off” yesterday, so please read through to see my opinion on this. Manuka honey is the name of the honey sourced from New Zealand and one of the best available. Manuka honey is famous in Australia and I use this as a plain face mask and also take some when suffering from colds. I am a big fan of honey-scented beauty products, as well as honey in general – it’s a very warm, comforting smell. Honey is such a versatile product – it cleanses, moisturizes and also has an antibacterial action on skin. When I saw the name “Manuka Honey,” I really wanted to try this mask.
Harnessing the power of miracle ingredient, Manuka honey, which is made with nectar bees have collected from the Manuka bush, native to New Zealand, this mask offers the natural, anti-bacterial benefits of the honey which gently cleanses the skin without stripping it of essential natural oils. Busy Bees have collected nectar from the Manuka Bushes of New Zealand creating Manuka Honey – a natural anti-bacterial cleanser. They source pollen & we add the flower power of fragrant Jasmine.
My Experience with Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel Off Mask:
Like all Montagne Jeunesse masks, this comes in a single use sachet. The packaging is eye catching as usual and the product smells like honey and looks just like honey, but with a slightly lighter texture. This mask is easy to apply and unlike the cream and mud masks from this brand – this mask is just enough to apply on face and neck for a single use. I am a big fan of peel-off masks, even though I don’t find they do much beyond removing the most superficial layer of my dead skin cells, which are regularly sloughed through both manual and chemical exfoliation anyway.
This mask is more of a treat than anything else. Because of the lighter texture, it’s easy to apply the mask and even after applying, this does not make skin tight and uncomfortable. I left it on for 15 minutes and then it was time to peel if off. The product dried off evenly as I applied it evenly and peeling it off was a breeze.
This mask got rid of the dead skin and I noticed my nose was also a bit clear from whiteheads –might be because of the peel off effect. My face looked smooth and there was a slight glow which is lasting till today, I used the mask yesterday. Did not leave my combination skin dry, even in this cold weather in Australia. I washed off the residue and applied lotion afterwards.
Pros of Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel Off Mask:
- Manuka honey has many cleansing and moisturizing benefits.
- Gets rid of dry skin and reduces whiteheads.
- BUAV approved, so I assume the bees are treated well in the process of deriving honey.
- Makes skin temporarily lighter and brighter.
- Does not contain parabens.
- Has a natural honey fragrance.
Cons of Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel Off Mask:
- Pricey for a single use.
- Might not be available in all countries.
I like this mask but I have tried the other peel off masks from the same range – green tea, passion and cucumber peel offs and feel the effect is the same with all peel off masks, only the ingredients and fragrance is different. I will definitely purchase this mask again.
