Hi Lovelies ,
I’m back with a face mask review and this time its Montagne Jeunesse Virgin Olive Ultra Deep Cleansing Mask. I use face masks regularly and have seen the payoff. Since I’m a regular user I love masks that come in sachets since I use different ones according to my skins mood. I look out for MJ masks during sales and always try to stock up as they are quite pricey when on full price. Some of the masks from this brand have become my HG products some others are just so, so….please read on to see how this face mask performed on my combination skin which becomes quite dry during winter.
Product description and claims:
Nourish with our cold pressed Virgin Olive Oil mud masque for soft and supple skin. We’ve added ultra-moisturising rich Shea & Cocoa butter to leave your skin super smooth and deeply cleansed.
Directions for use:
Cleanse with warm water only. Apply evenly over face and neck with fingertips, avoiding eyes and lips. Lie back & relax for 10-15 minutes, or until dry. Rinse off with warm water. Pat dry. Use weekly
My experience with Montagne Jeunesse Virgin Olive Ultra Deep Cleansing Mask:
Opening up a new montagne Jeunesse mask is always an exciting affair for me. I anticipate the colour (as the one shown on the packaging mostly differs from the real product), fragrance as well as the consistency. This particular mask is of pale green colour and is of a rich, creamy texture like body butter. This mask has a natural fragrance but does not smell like olives. The fragrance is not overpowering and will suit all sensitive noses. This product is intended for Normal, Dry or sensitive skin. I have combination skin but during winter months my skin becomes very dry in certain areas especially near my lips and eyebrows. Because of this condition I avoid oil absorbing masks and also try to use two face masks at a time like Miranda Kerr suggests. That is to use an oil absorbing/mattifying mask of oily areas and a moisturising mask on the dry areas.
I have tried using this mask all over my face once and only on dry bits couple of times. This product contains cold pressed extra virgin olive oil, shea butter, cocoa butter as well as vitamin E for moisturising and mud/clay for deep cleansing. This would be the thickest mask I have tried from Montagne Jeunesse and feels like body butter. This mask dries and hardens and I usually leave it for around 20 minutes. This is also a bit difficult to wash off. I had to use warm water and scrub the mask off with a wet cloth.
Regarding these effects on my face, my skin felt smooth and soft for a day had my skin looked a little bit radiant. My dry patches were also moisturised but the effects were temporary. Overall, this is a good mask from Montagne Jeunesse but not the best and I’m not going to add these to my HG mask list. There are definitely better masks out there.

Cons of Montagne Jeunesse Virgin Olive Ultra Deep Cleansing Mask:

• Very difficult to wash off the mask
IMBB Rating: 3.5/5
Will I repurchase this?
No, I will give this mask a skip as it didn’t do much to my skin in terms of moisturising or making it radiant.
