For the past two weeks this face mask has been on my to-hunt down list. I finally got my hands on it for the normal price of £1 in Asda and decided to try it out straight away.
As I'm mentioned in past posts I do like to pick up Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks as a pamper treat than for any real skincare benefits. So even though the Hot Chocolate mask is marketed as a deep pore mask I don't really feel it has much lasting benefit to the skin. For me the scent of the mask is where it's at! I was instantly drawn to this mask like a moth to light as I'm such a fan of yummy face/body products and chocolate orange just sounded perfect.
And perfect it was! Firstly the mask actually feels like melted chocolate in formula (so a little runny) and the smell.... ahhh, the smell, a perfect blend of rich chocolate and zesty orange that is neither synthetic smelling or overpowering. Just amazing and edible.... well actually not edible, edible smelling (I may have had a small taste... it's a problem I have with yummy scented products eep!)
Also as the name of the mask states this is actually a hot chocolate mask as it is self heating, which though I don't see the point in, is quite comforting if you are pampering yourself at night. Unlike a few other self heating masks I've tried from other brands this doesn't get too warm... though I'm not sure I'd be picking this up to use in summertime.
As for application you may be able to guess that it's a messy one - so messy! And as for answering the door to anyone... that is out of the question. I'd even suggest being home alone when using this mask, in fact I was worried I'd scare my dog and I'm not even joking! Removal is easier as it is a 'wet' mask that doesn't dry so removing it with a muslin cloth or flannel is pretty easy. After my skin was left a little red (which did go down), super clean and soft feeling. I can't say I noticed a difference in my pores however my skin was definitely mattified and just happier feeling.
As a little treat this mask was lovely! Next on my list is the Montagne Jeunesse Fudge Sauna mask.
