Face Mask Fridays: Montagne Jeunesse Pressed Blueberries Very Berry Ultra Moisturising and Cleansing Masque

It's that time of the week again: it's Face Mask Friday! Todays review is on the Montagne Jeunesse Pressed Blueberries Very Berry Ultra Moisturising and Cleansing Masque *gasps for air* I swear, MJ's face masks have the longest of names..

Montagne Jeunesse Pressed Blueberries Very Berry Ultra Moisturising and Cleansing Masque Review

Don't you hate it when there's a sticker on the product you're going to review and when you try to take it off you know it's going to ruin the packaging even more so you leave it and the perfectionist in you wants you to just GO OUT and BUY ANOTHER ONE because GAH ITS NOT PERFECT LOOKING and ASDFGHJKL;'?? *flips table*

Can I get a #bbloggerproblems up in here? xD

Ahem. Anyhoo. Onto the review..

The last MJ mask I reviewed was a bit of a disaster to be quite frank, and I was a little hesitant in trying out another one.. my poor eyes didn't want another round of that again. But I had some other masks in my stash from MJ, and having seen how everyone loves their masks so much, I thought I might as well give the brand a second chance seeing as I have some to try!

So I picked this one out of the bunch, mainly because I'm a fruit lover and have been on a bit of a blueberry and cranberry jam kick these past couple of weeks. Oh, and it said 'ultra moisturising' on the packet, and I was getting sick of the random dry patches around my nose and thought I'd remedy them at the same time (^__^)

'Bursting with the juice of pressed Blueberries and crushed Cranberries, our fruity beauty is packed with antioxidants. Nourishing Peach Kernel Oil and soothing Aloe Vera will leave your skin refreshed and cleansed.'

Let's break down the main ingredients:
♦     Blueberries - reduce redness (e.g. in rosacea), good for acne prone skin, antioxidant, anti-ageing.
♦     Cranberries - antioxidants, anti-ageing, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and also has brightening properties.
♦     Peach Kernel Oil - anti-ageing, antioxidant, contains Vitamin E, perfect for dry and/or sensitive skin.
♦     Aloe Vera - soothes skin, has antibacterial properties that can help reduce the appearance of acne.

All good ingredients to have in a face mask if you ask me! (^__^)

Now.. when I opened this up, I was REALLY surprised at the look of it. It looked so.. metallic?! I'd never seen anything like it. It confused me a bit O.o It smelled really nice and fruity though, just like it's description - good enough to eat!

Consistency wise, it was a lovely, soft cream that spread quite well over the face - not too thick, nor too runny. It didn't really dry fully, but I didn't really mind to be honest - I think it was because I might have put too much of it on.

After using this, my skin did feel a little softer and cleaner, but not to the extent where I was oohing and ahhing over it. I expected I would because of the whole 'ultra moisturising' part in the title. It was a little bit of a let down when I patted my skin dry and it didn't feel much different than before. *sad face*

 Aaaaand that's all I have to say about it really. Should I do a conclusion? Okay I'll do a conclusion. T__T

*clears throat*

SO IN CONCLUSION.. I'd say it was a bit of a meh product. Apart from it's fruity smell. I got about 2/3 uses out of it, which is pretty good value in my opinion, but I wouldn't buy it again because it didn't do wonders for my skin. I prefer to use things that make me go 'WOAH I am SO glad I used that!' and this I'm afraid, didn't.

You can buy these practically anywhere for a quid: Boots, Amazon, even New Look
Have you tried this mask? What do you think of it?
