Montagne Jeunesse Skin Care Masks

Today is the first official day of winter, and I'm already ready for it to be spring!  Winter never waits for December 21st here in Wisconsin; it usually starts around Halloween. And we've already had a few decent snow storms this year. 

Let's not even mention what it does to my skin!  Im so dry and itchy from the hot showers and dry air. And my face is flaky from a lack of moisture. Lucky for me, my Influenster Violet Vox box arrived with an answer to my problems!  

Along with the other goodies, I received a Montagne Jeunesse Red Earth Clay Spa mud infused cloth mask. 
It's no mess!  It's a piece of cloth that fits to your face with the clay and pomegranate built in!  All you have to do is take the mask out of the package, place it on your face and relax for 10 minutes. Take it off, and massage the left over product into your face. 

Unfortunately I used my mask in the bath, so I don't have any pictures of it. But my skin felt amazing afterwards!

On the booklet that my mask came in was an email address to contact the company regarding their VIP blogger club. Of course I emailed them that night, and within the week I had three more samples in my mailbox. Talk about quick!

My samples included a Creamy Coconut mud mask (actual mud, not the fancy cloth), a Manuka Honey Peel Off (and I reminisced about middle school sleepovers!), and Super Fruit mud mask (again, actual mud). I have two more reviews for you!

The first I used was the honey peel off mask. 
And husbands really just don't understand. The look I got from mine when I emerged from the bathroom was priceless. 
This one is easy, but not AS easy as the cloth. Just apply to a clean face (avoid your eyebrow area and hair line!) and wait for it to dry, like 10 minutes. And then the fun begins...peel it off!
My friends and I used to do these at sleepovers ALL. THE. TIME. and man did they hurt to peel off!  The first thing I noticed as I did this was how much it didn't hurt (until I got a little too close to my hair line). And the way my skin felt afterwards was amazing. So soft and clean!  I don't have after pictures because I hate my uneven skin tone. Sorry!!

Last night before bed I used the super fruit mud mask. Did I mention they use mostly natural ingredients and don't test on animals?  Or how amazing these products smell?  They smell fabulous!
This one works the same as the honey mask, only you wash it off in the end. Again, leave it on for about 15 minutes, let it dry a little.
I left mine on for about 10, as it started to feel a little warm on my face. The after effects were the same though. Holy soft and supple skin!  My flakey nose is a thing of the past right now!
 Next week I will be using the coconut, so look for that review coming soon!  I also have a new (to me) line of indie polishes I will be reviewing by the end of the weekend!!
