|Montagne Jeunesse Hot Chocolatee Orange mask, 99p|
But hey, I figured I would try it out regardless. It promises to "unclog pores" and "condition the skin" of big burly bastards* so it should work wonders on my more delicate epidermis...right?
*Before I continue, I will just clarify that the pack does not actually mention BBBs at all.
It actually smells OK and as one would expect for a product with natural spearmint oil as its main active ingredient It's scent is definitely not as masculine as I imagined it would be.
Problem is, this stuff STINGS terribly when you first put it on - OMG MY FACE IS MELTING style. I did however persevere through the discomfort.
I was also really disappointed with the coverage. In the rather unattractive picture of me below, you can see the pack creates a thin film, much different to the thick blue portrayal on the packet!
You will also notice some redness under my delicate eye area - this was not there before putting the mask on (shit, maybe this stuff really is for BBBs only after all!) I know this area should be avoided when applying facial masques and so I didn't purposely apply the product in this area but mistakes do happen.
I've never had reactions like this to other Montagne Jeunesse products. I can literally smear the chocolate ones over my entire face with no problems whatsoever.
|The stinging and tightening of the mask made it hard to smile...|
Results & Overall VerdictAfter 20 minutes or so (when the mask had dried and tightened), I peeled it off to reveal cleaner feeling skin and some less prevalent pores.The redness under my eyes had also gone (thank God!)
I have no plans to ever purchase this treatment again in the future but I'm not the target audience anyway, not having a penis an' all.
Give me my Hot Chocolate Orange mask any day! That one doesn't sting and the coverage is much better - I usually get two masks out of the one packet too, which isn't awkwardly narrow like that of the 'For Men' masque!
Have you ever accidentally bought and used a beauty product intended for men? What happened?
