Product review: Montagne Jeunesse Red Earth Clay Spa Masque

We laughed so hard.

This masque is not at all what I expected, but it turned out being very awesome. Prepare yourself for some ridiculous pictures, most of them taken by my three-year-old holding the camera remote.


First of all, this company Montagne Jeunesse seems really fun. This little disclosure about not testing on animals is great, I like a non-serious blurb and a product which is animal friendly.


So first you have to wash your face, so I put the photo taking on hold until I did that. I'm wearing another product which came in my Influenster Violet Voxbox called a Goody Athletique Headband which I will review at a later date.


Okay, so look at this thing. I thought it was going to be a cream but it was an actual masque. I put it on right in the den, no mess. And then hilarity ensued.


It smelled amazing and looked idiotic and the whole house was filled with laughter. The dogs were quite curious and wanted to lick it. The baby was very confused. Dylan, Sean, and I just laughed and laughed. I texted a picture to my BFF in England and posted another on Instagram. Apparently I have no shame.


After I put on the masque, my face felt pretty great. The instructions said to wait 10-15 minutes and the masque didn't feel at all intrusive, although it was hard to smile. It smelled great and felt like cool plaster. Unlike the way your scalp feels when you dye your hair, the masque didn't burn.

For those few minutes I went about my motherly duties; feeding the baby, getting everyone something to drink, laughing some more with my husband at how much I resembled a horror film character. Dylan was chasing one of the dogs and wasn't listening so I put him in a time out and I nearly peed my pants having to put him on that chair wearing that masque. There was no point of trying to be serious.

And then it was time to take off the masque.


And then I rinsed my face. And my skin feels so nice! Really soft.


So I give this product an A- because it was a really fun, really easy product that made my skin feel great while smelling wonderful and making us all laugh.
