Review: Montagne Jenesse White Chocolate Ultra Deep Cleansing Masque

Noticed that horrible small army of acnes on my face? Especially around the cheek area. Well, that makes me the perfect hamster to test ultra deep cleansing mask.

Product Description:
The creamy chocolate face mask comes with cocoa butter and cream. It has ultra deep cleansing properties that draws out impurities and soothes sensitive skin. Luxurious and packed with mud, this face mask will leave your skin feeling pure, nourished, and refreshed.

This mask contains kaolin and bentonite natural clay that are the main ingredient of basically all facial mud mask, which is great for oily skin as it absorbs the sebum leaving skin matte. IMO, by absorbing sebum, I think it would help calming skin irritated with acne. There are also Shea butter, cocoa seed butter, almond oil, carrot seed oil, glycerin, jojoba oil and vitamin E that I think would help moisturise skin. These ingredients I believe is the reason why this mask leave slightly slick feel to the skin after rinsing it off. Aside from that, true to it's name, this mask contains ingredients that are used to make white chocolate.

The packaging of this product scream quirkiness with face covered with mask and eye covered with leaves and chocolate. This definitely makes it stands out on the shelf. But what I really want to highlight is the tiny pre-cut part of the packaging that makes it super easy to open. Most of this type of packaging have small indent that show where your should tear and you try and you end up biting it off like how you remove lollipop wrapper when you're kid.

There are tons of product in the package, well, 17g actually. But these 17g easily stretch to up to 4 uses. I transfer the clay to vacuum pump bottle and keep it in room temperature. I used it for four different days. I noticed no change to the product texture (it's still muddy) and smell (well, it smells like cheap chocolate). So, what does this mean? Value for money! Suggested retail price for this product is RM5.90. This equals to RM1.475 per usage. Cool.

I spread this mask on clean face using my index finger focusing on cheek area and leave it to dry for 20 minutes. While drying, I can feel my face become very stiff and when it finally dry (20 minutes later), I do all silly facial expressions. It's satisfying to see the mud mask cracked and peel of my skin. This mask easily rinse off with water. Before this mention this product leave slightly slick feel to the skin after rinsing it off, but funny enough, my skin feels a bit dry. Could be that the mask wicks off the sebum on my skin, including the good one that makes my skin moisturised.

After using it for four times, I noticed my acne appear to be less irritated and less red. I shouldn't do this, but I noticed pimples popped easily and whiteheads easily extracted after using the mask. But really, I should stop doing all that as it might leave scarring and worse acne. I think with longer use of this product, it could help improve my skin condition.
