Montagne Jeunesse Virgin Olive Oil Face Masque

I love a good face mask, and I recently took some time to pamper myself with Montagne Jeunesse's Virgin Olive Oil Face Masque* ($1.99/15g). These masks come in single use packets, which are affordable, and a great way to try out a bunch of different formulas!

"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. Suitable for:
- Dry Skin
- Normal Skin
- Sensitive Skin" - Farley Co.

Montagne Jeunesse's Virgin Olive Oil Face Masque is bright green in colour (sorry, my phone camera didn't quite pick up the true colour!). Whenever I imagine a face mask, I picture it being bright green - that's what we always see in the movies, right? This formula is pretty thick and creamy, and there's just enough to apply a thick coat all over your face. This mask has a nice light scent that does actually remind me of olive oil! This scent isn't overpowering, and I found it quite calming. 

This mask does start to harden after about 10 minutes, and it can start to feel a bit tight. By about 15 minutes my mask was almost completely dry, and I took some warm water and cleanser to remove everything. It did take a little bit of extra elbow grease to fully remove this mask - you might want to use a washcloth. I always follow my masks with a toner, to make sure that I've removed absolutely everything. My nose was left a bit red, but that went away in a matter of minutes. My skin felt refreshed, cleansed, and lightly hydrated! I don't think that this mask works miracles, but it smells nice, it's relaxing, and it did benefit my skin. 

If you're looking for something to feel pampered on a budget, I would highly recommend Montagne Jeunesse's face masks! There are a ton of different formulas, so there's sure to be something for everyone. I think that the Virgin Olive Oil Face Masque is best for anyone with normal/dry skin that just wants a bit of a refresher and light hydration. Have you tried any of Montagne Jeunesse's face masks? Which one is your favourite?

  1. this sounds nice but the nut oil one just smells soooo good!

  2. I love these little packages of facial goodness and often pick one up when I'm at the drug store.


  3. I love the "classic" green mud look. It's like an instant expectation gratification for a relaxing pampering product.

  4. I had the nut oil one and it smelled so good! Not a fan of drying masks though.
