Hey everyone!

So this week I had the chance to try a Montagne Jeunesse mask "Clean-Up Mud." This mask is for deep cleansing that has aloe juice for blemish prone skin. Some other ingredients include Mediterranean clay, willow, and witch hazel. When I opened the package, the smell was a bit strong at first (almost medicinal), but it did not bother me when I applied it to my face. I applied an even layer of the mud mask and let it sit for 10-15 min as directed. The mask went on smoothly and did not dry out as I was covering my entire face. I don't usually try masks because in the past they have gotten very itchy as they dry. But I was pleasantly surprised with this mask! Even though it smelled strong it did not irritate my sensitive skin. Instead there was this slight tingly and cooling sensation. After I rinsed off the mask, my skin felt very soft and smooth. It felt refreshed, cleansed, and did not proceed to feel very dry or itchy.

I just used this mask once, but other reviews on Montagne Jeunesse's website attest to the blemish control aspect, saying that after repeated uses they have noticed that it reduces blemishes and oil. 

If you're looking to spend a little more on a clay mas, LATHER offers a comparable mask - White Clay Deep Pore Cleansing Mask, a detoxifying facemask for oily or acne-prone skin that can also be used on sensitive skin. This comes in a 4-ounce jar priced at $22. 

At $6.95 Montagne Jeunesse Clean-Up Mud is a great price to try a mud mask without spending too much. But if you want to get a quick feel for a clay mask at an even lower price, you can try Freeman Feeling Beautiful Facial Clay Mask Avacado & Oatmeal. Although you will get a feel for clay masks, this mask does not work to alleviate blemishes or acne-prone skin.

Take advantage of gift sets!  People, especially women think of Gift sets, solely for what they are SoapGlory totemeant for gifts for other people.  But Gift sets and travel kits can be an amazing way to get to know a brand with out having the purchase full size products of the entire line.

I have found some of my most favorite products through gift sets.  Where there is just enough product to try it for a week or 2... and then decide.  Yes I love it, I am going back for more... or what else is out there... Is there something else better suited for me????

Paul-Joe-Holiday-2012-Makeup-Collection-Promo1Most brands choose at least one or two of their best products to put in these sets, and then they always add on things that you should try but may not have thought to purchase... make sure to all the products in the sets. You already have them, why not.  I got a set with a type of mask I usually do not buy... it is a powder form and you have to mix it yourself... But it ended up being really cool.  I tried with with the cleanser from the set and really liked it.  Now I am rethinking some other masks that I have passed on before... I may give them a try too in 2013.

So if you were super lucky this year and got gift certificates for cosmetics or skin care...   Go for a gift set or travel kit...  your value will be there!

Happy New Year Everyone!
