Montagne Jeunesse Pawpaw Peel Off Pore Blast

A week or so ago I used this –


Now, I know it seems a bit slack to leave it a week to post up a review, but see, I wanted to see how it was going to go. I’ll explain a bit further down…

This smelled LOVELY. It was fruity, tropical, I assume it smelled of pawpaw. I don’t think i’ve ever had one. Is it another name for papaya? I really liked the scent. The consistency was as you would expect, clear, sticky, gets between your fingers a bit.

I put it on my face and went back to watch television. It felt good, no stinging or dripping, and I felt it start to peel itself off round the edges as I opened my mouth after it dried. It came off fairly well, quite large pieces (except for the bits from my eyebrows, as usual). My face was left clearer, smoother and the pores were indeed a little less noticeable.

Now, this is why I left it a week to review. Nothing else in my routine has changed.  Yet, within a few hoirs of using this, my face got really oily. And it’s fairly oily as it is. I can only assume it was this masque that created the oily breakout, which in the coming days resulted in a terrible spot coming out on my jawline.

Probably not for me.

So, it smells great, but made my face


Montagne Jeunesse Hot Chocolate Mask

I’ve just finished washing this off my face –


II was really naughty though.  I habe no idea how long it was on my face.  I was enjoying the smell too much as it surrounded my face in loveliness.

This mask is a self heating mask, with the texture, appropriately, of the scent it is attempting to imitate.  It felt like I had pasted my face with a Terry’s Chocolate Orange, which for anyone not familiar is an orange oil infused milk chocolate ball, roughly fist sized.  You should try one. 

The mask was heavenly.  The heat didn’t last as long as I would have liked, probably as long as it took from me to walk from the bathroom to the bedroom and sit down, but it was a pleasant heat, rather than a more intense heat that other brands give.

I think it was on for about twenty minutes.  I think.  I wouldn’t like to put money on it.  As ever, I got it in my hair, and struggled to wash it off properly, but now I have, my face feels soft.  My pores are meant to be cleansed, and looking in the mirror I must admit, I think the job has been done.  They are visible, but there is nothing in them.  Lovely and clean.  With no tightness, which I get from a lot of products.

I rate this one highly.  Very highly indeed, on both effect and fragrance.
