Montagne Jeunesse Blemish Mud Review

My skin crisis has been relieved now and what’s left to be done is to wait for the scars to heal on my cheek area. If you look at my previous post, that is how my naked skin look like except that I have applied concealer, drew my brows and applied mascara. I still get break out maybe once every two weeks now and they turn out to be tiny ones which is good. One of the step to maintain clear skin is to pamper them with skin treatments! Here I put myself to try Montagne Jeunesse Blemish Mud mask as Yuberactiv member. They had re-design their packaging, which definitely look better and fun.

This mask is suitable for normal, greasy and t-zone skin for a clear, clean and refreshed skin.  Here are some description I found from their website:

“Enliven your skin and help combat unsightly blemishes with our Aloe Vera and Willow Blemish Mud. Our special blend of nature’s remedies naturally targets your problem areas for a clear and clean complexion.

Recommended for Normal, Greasy and T-Zone Skin

  • Gluten Free
  • Dairy Free

The kink is pretty hidden until you notice on the right which it says ‘tear out to open’. Nothing shows the kink whereabouts at the front.

If you look at the ingredients listing, you’ll be amaze how much natural ingredients that they use.  There’s which hazel, Mediterranean clay, dead sea salt, willow bark extract, rosemary leaf oil, aloe vera juice, evening primrose extract and etc. It sounds really promising.

The texture of the mask is really thick and creamy, that’s great because this is what I’m expecting from a mud mask. However, it doesn’t turn out to be as green as shown in the image at the front of the sachet. Upon opening the sachet, the smell of rosemary could be a little overwhelming. I could still bare with it but I’m not sure if others be able to and it feels like my face is a piece of meat marinated with rosemary herbs. Hahaha!

20 grams of the mask was provided in the mask which I think its better to separate it to two times of usage. If you were to use half of it and keep the rest of the mask, you never know if it’ll be on its best quality anymore. If you want to do so, you have to make sure that the opening of the sachet is tightly secured and keep it in the fridge. To apply all of the mask at once can be kind of wasteful because the texture is already there and I’m sure that the mask could do the job still.

Can you tell the difference from the sachet image and mine? I manage to apply all the mask onto my face and it’s extremely thick. I just have to wait for 10-15 minutes or until dry to remove it. I prefer to leave it until dry and that had took me approximately half and hour or more?

By the time it’s dry, it doesn’t really crack easily due to the thickness but there’s small cracks over on the thinly-applied ones. I even applied on my neck for a bit and when it dries it starts to irritate. When I wash it, it was quite a tough job! I had use my deep cleansing method and run through my brush over my face about four times at least. That’s really some tough mud!

Anyways, the mask left my skin feeling clean and brighter, not as dull as before. Yeah, that tough removal of the mask made my nose red. My face felt smoother and it made my skin ‘breathe’ because when I continue with my skin care regime, my skin seems to absorb everything faster. However, it doesn’t really does much after what I mentioned. My skin seems to oiled up as usual on the next day and I had a breakout on this one! Argh! Luckily it was those small ones.
