Face Mask Fandom | Passion Peel Off

Montange Jeunesse

So it’s safe to say that I have a fair few face masks saved up. In a bid to stop being a hoarder I thought I would start a mini-series reviewing them. As the above photo suggests, it’ll mostly be the Montagne Jeunesse masks, although there will be a few other kinds thrown in there too. I’m hoping that this series will also help me identify which one works best for my skin, instead of what I just like the smell of.

Passion Peel off

First up is Montagne Jeunesse’s Passion Peel Off Face Masque. This is the £1 sachet that is readily available in Boots and Superdrug as well as most supermarkets. You only need a thin layer so I find that there is enough product in this sachet for two faces – I recommend sharing with a pal at the same time over saving it as there’s no way to re-seal these.

The mask is a very thin, runny red gel (not purple like the packaging suggests) which is very messy. Be warned! Once on the face, you leave it to dry and then peel off. A thin layer is very important otherwise you might end up with it dripping off your face and not drying. I also don’t recommend using peel off masks in a hot bath as the steam will stop it from drying (learnt that one the hard way!).

I don’t think that peel off masks are suited to my face. They peel away dead skin but don’t replace it with any moisture and as I have dry skin this is a bit of a problem. Also, as satisfying as it is to peel the mask away, it can get a bit sore when it’s also pulling out downy-like hair, which I have. Ouch!

On the plus side, this smells incredible – a fruity combination of pomegranate and passion flower. If you’re a fan of peel-off masks and you have normal or oily skin this would be great for you, although I’m not a fan. Boo, no snake-like shedding fun for me!

I hope you’ll enjoy this series. Which face mask do you recommend I try next?

  1. i’m looking forward to reading your new series, i’ve never tried this one but as its fruit it sounds right up my street

  2. I’m not an expert on face masks, but I really liked a minty/crystal one from the same brand. The name escapes me! It was a peeling mask as well, and I found it great at clearing up a breakout I had at the time, maybe I should to back and give it another go 🙂
