Montagne Jennesse Black Seaweed Peel Off Masque

I do love a good face mask, but I've been so busy through August that I haven't done one since the Montagne Jennesse Skin Polisher in July! I thought tonight was as good a time as any to give my face a treat. I decided to give the Black Seaweed Peel Off Mask a go, since I haven't tried that one before.

First of all, I love the Montagne Jennesse masks because they're all natural and 100% animal cruelty free, which is a massive deal for me and I'm sure many of you. This one looked particularly interesting as it was described as a weekly 'detox' mask; I figured after a month and a half without a mask, a detox was just what my skin was needing.

I expected a really thick, clay like mask which would be easy to apply and spread evenly around the face. However, I was surprised to find quite a runny, black, almost sticky mask; it was like a thin honey consistency. It was quite messy and a little difficult to apply because it just seemed to go everywhere; by the time my face was covered, so were my hands and my sink. A word of advice - definitely do this over the bathroom sink as this will go everywhere, even if you're careful.

It didn't go on quite as thick and evenly as the lady on the packaging, but I managed to cover my entire face and look suitably odd. Once it was on my face, it stayed well and it smelt really nice; quite spa like. I left it on for about 10 to 15 minutes, before it was so tight that I couldn't move my face; hence why I look so serious in the picture below. When I returned to the mirror to remove the mask, I stretched my face and the mask was so tight, it started to peel off on its own. It came off easily and it was like peeling a bin bag off my face. It was weird, but I must say, my skin looked pretty great afterwards! I'm pretty chuffed with the results, and although it was quite a messy mask, I really felt it getting to work and saw a difference in my skin. I will definitely be trying this one again.

You can pick up the Montagne Jennesse masks from your local chemist or supermarket for about a £1. I managed to get this one for 66p on offer in Boots; that was about a week ago so they may still be on offer!
