Montagne Jeunesse Hot Chocolate Self-Heating Masque – Review

Hey everyone!

* Product provided for review. *

Starting this week for a total of 5 weeks, the Canadian Beauty Bloggers are having a mask challenge thanks to FarleyCo and Montagne Jeunesse. Every week we’ll be trying a different type of face mask from Montagne Jeunesse (sometimes the same one and sometimes a different one from the same line) which we’ll be sharing with you, and at the very end you’ll find out which type came out the overall winner. Weekly recaps will be posted on the CBB Web site as will the big tally at the end of it all.

This first week had us trying a mask from the self-heating category and we all received the Hot Chocolate one. Keep on reading to find out how this one worked out for me, and for the other ladies as well!

Take a deep breath of our self – warming Chocolate Orange masque and you’ll be in chocolate heaven! Mediterranean Clay cleanses dirt and oils from deep within pores. Rich dark chocolate and orange oil leave skin feeling soft and refreshed.

Suitable for:
– Combination Skin
– Normal Skin
– Oily Skin

Scent

Hot Chocolate… nuff said! 😛

Seriously though, this product smells like you want to eat it with a spoon instead of slathering it on your face. It has a bit of orange scent to it and I’m usually not a fan of orange chocolate, but it’s light enough that I didn’t really notice it.

Application

Application is easy and simple – just pour out the contents into your hands and apply all over face. Easy peasy.

Feeling #1 (with mask on)

This is a self-heating mask so, yeah, it self-heats when you put it on. It doesn’t burn though, I found it to be a comfortable heat. It only lasted about 5-10 seconds though and then it was room-temperature.

Removal

This process I did not like as much. I rinsed it off in the sink and there was muddy-looking water all over once I was done – I actually had to wash my sink. Also, while rinsing it off some of the water got into my hairline so when I dried my face in my white towel I got a nice streak of brown from that leftover water.

Feeling #2 (after removal)

After removing this mask my face felt smooth, but also really dry and you could see some flakiness going on, unfortunately. This mask is not intended for dry skin though.

Final Thoughts

If you like chocolate then you will LOVE the scent of this mask! However, I don’t recommend it if you have dry skin because it dried me out. But if you have combo/oily skin then I’m sure it would work better for you since it is intended for those skin types.

Removal was quite messy though so I don’t see myself purchasing this mask in the future.

You can buy this mask for $1.99 CAD on the FarleyCo web site, and they also list the retailers that carry it.

If you don’t follow me on twitter then you missed this picture (unless you saw it in my Baylis & Harding post):

Have you tried this mask? What kind of mask do you like to use?

Don’t forget to read the other reviews on this mask – we all have different skin types and opinions!
