Mask Hurray!: Montagne Jeunesse/7th Heaven 'Manuka Honey Peel-Off' Mask

So here's another Mask Hurray post! I really want to try the different types of the Montagne Jeunesse masks because they're so affordable and seem to have a good range. The last one I reviewed was their Dead Sea Mud Pac (link here to read that post) and I really felt as though it made a difference to my skin. This time I'm reviewing the 'Manuka Honey Peel Off' mask because I love the smell of honey and I've heard it's good for blemishes! Just keep reading to find out what I thought of it!

The 'Manuka Honey Peel Off' mask contains Manuka honey (duh...), Aloe Vera, Jasmine, and Chamomile and claims to help purify the skin and remove dead skin cells. From just reading this I can tell that it should help improve the state of my skin and get rid of any dead cell build up! 
Skin Before applying the mask
The scent is very much like honey, and I like that a lot, it isn't a harsh fragrance and I was able to stand it for the time it was on my skin, the scent even stayed afterwards and I found myself enjoying it whenever I could smell it. There is also a bit of a floral fragrance, which I'm guessing is coming from the jaasmine and chamomile but it's the honey that rules this mask.

Because this was a peel-off mask I didn't want to apply this with my face mask brush, as it can be very difficult to get out of the bristles. This mask wasn't too much trouble to apply with the fingers though. It was quite runny and was easy to spread; it wasn't sticky either, which surprised me because of the honey it contains.
Just applied
I did find that this mask tingled on the skin quite a lot, maybe because of the Aloe Vera, which I wasn't too keen on. But it didn't burn too much and wasn't completely uncomfortable. I was surprised though because I expected the honey to be quite soothing. I have sensitive skin but can use lots of different products, so this may be something to think about depending on how sensitive your skin is.

The left the mask on for around 15 minutes and it dried pretty quickly. I tried not to over-apply the mask because I usually end up putting too much on and it doesn't dry too well, but with this one I seemed to layer it quite evenly. It was comfortable for the 15 minutes but as with most masks, once it dries you cannot WAIT to take it off, since you can no longer talk or move your face!
Completely dried
Once the 15 minutes were up I removed the mask and it was really easy to take off. I usually struggle with peel-off masks because I end up getting parts stuck in my hair and eyebrows and never notice they're there. This one came off with no problems and I did feel as though my face had been cleansed pretty well. It didn't leave any residue either which was obviously pleasant.

When I took a look at my face after removing the mask I found that my skin felt a lot softer and my pores looked smaller than they did before. My skin looked a lot better colour-wise and my blemishes had been soothed and had gone down slightly (probably because of the chamomile). My nose definitely felt a lot better and there didn't seem to be as many blackheads or blemishes, which I was very pleased about!

All in all I have to say that I am, once again, very impressed by this Montagne Jeunesse/7th Heaven mask and I think this will be another one I use again. It left my skin feeling soft and fresh, it smells SO good and is quick and easy to use! It soothed my blemishes which is a big help because there isn't a time where I don't have any, so to find something that helps soothe them is great. I'm not sure which mask I have lined up next but if it's anything like the last 2 I've used, I won't be disappointed! Let me know if you have tried this mask and what you thought about it, or what I should try out next.

Speak to you next time!
