Montagne Jeunesse Mud Pac duo


I fucking love a face mask. There is honestly nothing better than slapping one on your face then sitting and doing nothing for 10/15 minutes. I literally have to sit there and do nothing mind you, as soon as I take my glasses off, doing anything that involves using my eyeballs in any way is out the window. (Remember my Things I hate about wearing glasses post? I should have added this point!) I'm yet to find a type of face mask I don't like, I love self heating, peel offs, clay, you name it, I dig it babe. Of course when I came across the Montagne Jeunesse Mud Pac duo in Poundland, I just couldn't resist. Two facemasks for a pound, hell yeah I'm buying them.

I've been buying Montagne Jeunesse products for years now and I've never had a problem with them. Every mask of theirs I've used has wielded most excellent results. One thing I did notice about this packet in particular though was that it still had the Montagne Jeunesse packaging but the company have now changed their name to 7th Heaven so I'm not quite sure how old this packet is, how long it's been sitting in Poundland or a warehouse for that matter. But that's a post for another day.

I'm not a fan of their name change in the slightest if I'm honest. I loved Montagne Jeunesse, it had that je ne sais quoi, that distinction and also that thing where half their customers probably pronounced it wrong forcing them to change it, I'M LOOKING AT YOU CIF, fuck off you're called Jif.

The Dead Sea & Sea Kelp (or blue) one goes on a very pale blue, almost white. It's so cooling and refreshing on the skin and while it does harden, I don't necessarily feel my skin tightening underneath it. You do however lose the ability to speak whilst this is on, especially if you're like me and don't like cracking your face until you know it's time to wash it off!

The Damask Rose & Marula Oil (or pink) one follows the rule of a lot of Montagne Jeunesse masks in that it doesn't match the colour on the packet. This came out pretty much white (see the above picture) and I gotta say I was not a fan of the smell, so overpowering. Euan even commented that I smelled like his gran! After about 3 minutes of this being on my face it started to tingle a bit but in a rather uncomfortable way, a few more minutes and it cooled to feeling just a touch warm but still quite cooling on my skin. Does that even make any sense?

After trying out both of these masks, my skin was left feeling fresh, soft and so bloody smooth butter would have slid right off. I won't be trying out that theory of course because ew, butter on your face. I'll definitely pick up more Montag... oh fine 7th Heaven masks as they are a bit of a favourite of mine. Do you have a go to from this brand? Let me know below!

Until next time x

  1. Haha, sorry I had to giggle at part of your post! I'm with you on the name change thing, JIF, Ulay, chocolate bars and now these. I had to double check the name of these masks when buying them recently. Why can't companies leave things alone?
    I got mine from Boots but did see them in Poundland as I pick up a lot of beauty essentials in there, you've got me thinking now! I still love them though, the cucumber one is my favourite.
