Montagne-Jeunesse Creamy Coconut Face Mask Review

Updated on May 6, 2015

In Brief

  • Great price
  • Pleasant scent
  • Feels good on skin
  • Creamy, smooth texture

The Gist

I have super dry skin. It's rough and flaky, and hardly anything will even provide even temporary relief. I have tried thick creams, gel-like products, Vaseline, oils, pretty much anything. But one thing I hadn't tried yet was a facial mask.

Recipes for making your own face mask abound online; almost every beauty blogger or guru has one posted somewhere, it seems. Though I am a fan of DIY and cost-savings, I decided to purchase a pre-made face mask for my first foray into this part of the skincare realm.

The Montagne-Jeunesse Creamy Coconut mask comes in an envelope similar to those that cream makeup samples are packaged in. It contains 0.5 fluid ounces (15 ml) of "vegetarian standard" product that includes coconut water and shea butter. With their claim, "Hydrating Vitality Boost For Tired Skin", the fact that the company doesn't test on animals, and a very agreeable price of about $1.99, I was definitely interested.

The Process

On the back of the Montagne-Jeunesse package, there are instructions for how to use the product. It says to cleanse the face, apply the mask, wait 10-15 minutes, then rinse it off. So, I did just that.

Upon opening the package, a mild, pleasant coconut scent met my nose, and as I applied it, I found it felt cool and smooth on my skin. I didn't find the fragrance to be strong at all.

I quickly learned, however, that there is more product in this package that I could possibly use in one go. I put on as much as I could, and still felt as though I was leaving quite a bit of product in the package. I didn't try to get two uses out of it, but I suppose that might be doable.

I waited the full 15 minutes, which was fine other than the fact that my glasses had to stay off unless I wanted them covered in goop. Once the time was up, I went to the sink. Inspecting it in the mirror, I found most of the mask had dried somewhat, but some areas were still shiny.

Rinsing off the Creamy Coconut mask was the toughest part. Since it was so thick, I employed a washcloth to gently help out.

The Result

My skin felt fairly soft and hydrated, and lightly scented once it was all off. This was nice, but admittedly, a little disappointing. I was expecting this to give me a smoother texture to my skin than it did. As for hydration, well, maybe. I'm sure it didn't sap moisture from my skin, but I don't think it added much, either. However, I must remember how dry my skin is to begin with, so the mask was fighting a tough battle.

Perhaps if you have only slightly dry skin, you'd experience better results than I did, but overall, I'd recommend the Montagne-Jeunesse Creamy Coconut mask. It smells great, feels nice on the skin, and has a great price. Look for it at Walmart and ULTA Beauty stores.
