montagne jeunesse strawberry souffle face mask

| montagne jeunesse strawberry souffle face mask
i love the feeling of putting on a face mask at the end of a long day. it makes me feel like i'm being properly pampered even though it requires little to no effort. the montagne jeunesse masks always remind me of sleepovers as a child. my friends and i used to pop into town and grab them before going home and putting them on and painting our toe nails. as an adult i had really forgotten about the brand but when i found this in my collection the other day i thought i would try it out and see how the brand faired now i was a bit more beauty savvy.

the first thing that hit when applying this mask is how amazing it smells! it smells just like strawberry syrup, in fact it smells so good that at one point i considered eating it! you have so much product in each satchet and it is pretty thick so you can apply a really thick layer onto the face. this is one of the only masks i've tried where you actually do end up looking like the girl on the front! 

strangely the mask doesn't actually dry. well it does sort of, but not enough for it to feel restrictive like other masks. i guess it's something do do with all of the cream inside it?  to me it feels like a more luxurious version of my diy yoghurt mask. it was as easy to wash off as any other mask i've tried but i wasn't left with that horrible tight but clean feeling afterwards. the little strawberry seeds in the mask work as a really gentle exfoliant when you wash the product off but don't aggravate the skin in doing so simply because the seeds are just so tiny!

you know normally i am one to say 'nope not worth it' if i can find a similar diy alternative but in this case i just love it too much! the scent is amazing and the mask left my skin feeling moisturised, yet clean. i absolutely love it and will definitely be purchasing it again!
