Review | Montagne de Jeunesse Passion Peel Off mask & Dead Sea Mud Spa mask

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

I loooooove getting a little me-time, which is why every Sunday night I treat myself to a private beautifying session. That means a foot bath, a pedicure, a manicure, and of course also a face mask. The mask that I normally use is Unique’s Renewing Mask, but when I received two Montagne de Jeunesse masks to try I put away my trusted Unique mask and spent two Sundays mixing things up a bit. Time to find out if that decision was a hit or a miss!

Montagne de Jeunesse, the brand

Though Montagne de Jeunesse has been around for 25 years, this was my first experience with the brand. But we’re already best buddies, because Montagne de Jeunesse and I share the same philosophy. All of the brand’s products are bursting with natural ingredients and are as eco-friendly as possible. And the brand is also 100% vegetarian because – and I quote – ‘’animals are our friends and we don’t bash bunnies or add bits of animals to our products.’’ High five to that! And the brand also sets itself apart from other brands with its fun packaging and light-hearted approach. In need of a mood booster? Grab a Montagne de Jeunesse mask!

Montage de Jeunesse Passion Peel Off mask

Review (Montagne de Jeunesse Passion Peel Off & Dead Sea Mud Spa mask) (2)

The Montagne de Jeunesse Pasion Peel Off mask is a mask with pomegranate, passion flower, raspberry, grape, cranberry and vitamin E. These are all powerful antioxidants that claim to protect the skin against harmful influences. And since this is a peel-off mask, the product has a gel-like texture that turns into a rubbery stretchy peel after a while, which according to Montagne de Jeunesse deeply cleanses the pores.

The fun starts straight away with this mask, because the texture and the smell are aaaaabsolutely delicious! The gel looks and feels like liquid candy and feels very pleasant on the skin, and it just smells fingerlickingly tasty. It almost smells good enough to eat*! And the transparent candy pink color – not purple like you see on the packaging – looks quite appetizing as well. After leaving the mask on for 15 to 20 minutes it’s time to take it off, and to my surprise that was actually a lot harder than I had expected. I couldn’t just peel the mask off in one go, but I really had to work in sections and tug and peel it off bit by bit.
* just to be clear: don’t eat it.

But even though removing the mask was a bit fussy, applying and wearing it was already enough for a great me-time moment. And the results? Well, I can’t really say that my pores looked any cleaner than before and obviously you can’t see the protecting effect of the antioxidants, but let’s just assume it’s there. For me it’s the overall pampering experience that counts with this mask, and what I did clearly see was that it made my skin suh-suh-suuuuuper soft.

Montagne de Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Spa mask

Review (Montagne de Jeunesse Passion Peel Off & Dead Sea Mud Spa mask) (4)

The Montagne de Jeunesse Dead Mud Spa mask is a mask with dead sea minerals, sea weed and kelp that promises to revitalize and intensely hydrate the skin. What makes this mask special is that you don’t have to massage it onto your skin. Instead it comes as a ready-made mask in the form of a mud-infused cloth that you just have to press onto your face. Very practical*.
* and as you will soon see also kind of ridiculous-looking ;-)

Unlike its sweet-scented pink sister the Dead Sea Mud Spa mask has a minty green color and smells very fresh. And it also feels refreshing on the skin, which I think is really cool. Literally ;-) When I took the mask off after fifteen minutes I immediately noticed that my skin looked a bit more plump and that it had a nice glow to it. So the Dead Sea Mud Spa mask definitely gives your skin a serious moisture boost, that’s for sure. And this without making it greasy by the way, phew. This is exactly what my skin needed after the chaotic holiday season!

Bottom line

I liked both Montagne de Jeunesse masks and I’m pretty sure that will use them again in the future. I’ll have to stock up first though, because unfortunately one bag only holds enough product for one application. The strong points of each mask? The Passion Peel Off mask is good for your skin as well as for your mood and leaves your skin feeling baby soft. And the Dead Sea Mud Spa mask is perfect to invigorate tired and thirsty skin. So that’s two thumbs up 2x!

  1. Looks great to me and I just need this ;-)

  2. Hi doll Happy New Year! It’s been a long time! Did you get my email?

  3. Ik gebruik dit merk altijd, ik vind ze zo fijn!

  4. Krijg je zo’n rood huidje wanneer je dit masker aanbrengt? Ik gebruik weinig tot geen maskers. Ik neem er de tijd niet voor…

  5. De Dead Sea versie lijkt me heerlijk! Ik ben al snel gevoelig voor maskers met allemaal chemische ingrediënten, dus ik hoop dat deze natuurlijkere maskers mijn huid niet irriteren :)

  6. Goede review! Ik ga denk ik ook eens kijken voor deze maskertjes.Zoals je zelf al zei, gewoon het feit dat je een masker ophebt is al relaxerend op zich!

  7. Hey Sunday nights are my ‘pamper’ nights too! Haha. That means hair + face masks, body scrub, mani pedi. Almost all the products I use are from The Body Shop, they’re pretty good x

  8. These are amazing value for money. I love the white chocolate masque :o)! Xx

  9. hahaha inderdaad bijzonder sexy ;) ik heb er ook al eens een aantal geprobeerd en ze zijn wel fijn, én lief voor mijn gevoelige huid!

  10. Klinkt erg fijn, misschien maar eens proberen!

  11. Ik houd van maskers, zou het eigenlijk vaker moeten doen…

  12. die lijkt me erg fijn ziet er goed uit

  13. Die maskers zijn altijd zo fijn he :D!

  14. I think I would walk straight pass these if I saw them in store (the packaging is so old school!), but they sound like awesome masks, love that it’s 100% vegetarian!

  15. Ik vind dit merk echt zo fijn voor gezichtsmaskertjes. Ik zou deze allebei wel eens willen proberen, ziet er goed uit!

  16. Have never heard of this brand. Thanks for the heads up. So cool the line is vegetarian.
    PS That Dead Sea mask sounds like something I can use right now. My skin after the holidays….ugh….

  17. I don’t think I’ve ever tried any face masks, I wanna try one but I don’t know where to start/what’s good for my skint type haha

  18. These are so great. I have only used one of them but I really liked it.

  19. It looks to be greattt
    Love masks !!!

  20. Haha, I especially love your comments with the pictures. I’m proud you dared to add them :) both products sound good.. but I’d rather create my own – natural – masks.. but then there’s this problem of me being too busy and too lazy to do that… oh dear.

  21. Great review! And you look good in those masks! Hehe ;)

    Perfect for a lovely skin ^^


  23. Ik kan wel zo’n maskertje gebruiken nu met de blokperiode :)

  24. I have a few of these that I haven’t gotten around to trying, I think now I will! Cloth masks are so much easier too.

  25. Die afbeelding op het tweede sachet vind ik creepy, zeg! Die eerste heb ik al eens geprobeerd, die vond ik wel prima! Al vind ik de komkommer peel-off van Freeman beter werken.

  26. Both masks look awesome! My favorite mask at the moment is Michael Todd True Organics Pumpkin Mask.

  27. de passion peel of masker lijkt me fijn xx

  28. Oh, this sounds so good!! I have to try it! Thank you for sharing sweetie!

    Thank you for your nice comment on my blog! Let’s be friends on Facebook if your wish! <3


  29. Nog nooit geprobeerd, maar klinkt erg goed! Zeker eens proberen dus!

  30. Dat Dead Sea Mud masker ziet er mij het interessantst uit. En man, uw gezicht op die eerste foto is priceless!

  31. I love sheet masks – I wish there were more brands available here; I really like Maskeraid, for example, but it’s a bit hard to find!

  32. I know and i usually use these products,mthey are very great!

  33. I love masking but I notice I always have a pimple attack after a day or two. I’m not sure if this is an allergic reaction to the product or is the mask bringing out the impurities.

  34. Ik ben normaal niet zo’n fan van deze maskertjes (vooral ook omdat je er maar één keer mee kan doen) maar ben toch wel benieuwd geworden. Vind die van het Tuinen huismerk (als ik het zo mag noemen) ook heerlijk! X

  35. Sounds like another thing I can add to my list of ‘things to try’!

  36. I love masks, the skin feels so soft after having them on for some time! Glad you liked those – the second one looks really funny though :D

  37. Ces masques ont vraiment l’air top ! :-)

  38. I love facials, either the peel off or the masks… both make my skin feel clean, soft and impurity free :)

  39. I seriously need to take more time out of my day and mask my face. It looks so relaxing!

  40. I’d love to try the passionfruit one! It seems like it would smell good and my pores need all the help they can get. Side note: Here in the US we have like pre packaged alcohol slushies. The packaging of these reminds me so much of them lol!

  41. Wohooo…dat ziet er spacy uit :) Maakt ook niet uit zolang het maar doet wat moet. Ik hou van maskers maar vooral hydraterende of op eclat werkende.

  42. Deze maskertjes zijn echt zoo fijn! Ze zien er inderdaad wat grappig uit, maar dat maakt zo ook meteen perfect voor een avondje met de vriendinnen. Fun gegarandeerd :D

  43. wauw, je bent prachtig!!

  44. Ik zou het echt meer moeten doen. Echt ontspannend zo’n masker.

  45. I love hydrating masks, ps. I nominated you for the sunshine bloggers award Look forward to reading your answers. Steph x

  46. Je vais faire un tour sur leur site, j’adore ce genre de soins !

  47. Klinkt heel goed zeg, ik vind het ook heerlijk af en toe een masker!

  48. Ik neem eigenlijk veel te weinig de tijd voor een masker. Deze klinken wel goed.

  49. They sounds great, I’d love to try them!

  50. Ik probeer ook om ieder zondag een me-time in te plannen, maar helaas gaat dat 9 van de 10 keer mis en komt er niets van in. Ik heb nog nooit eerder van het merk gehoord maar beide lijken me wel fijne producten.

  51. Nice review. Sometimes i also use mask of this brand!

  52. Zien er goeie maskertjes uit. Ikzelf gebruik niet echt veel maskers (ook duidelijk zichtbaar aan mijn huid) en als ik het al eens doe, maak ik iets zelf. Maar mss moet ik wel eens denken aan het aanschaffen van een écht product ;)

  53. ooh these were the first face masks I’ve tried <3 reminds me of early college days :)

  54. Ce produit a l’ai vraiment super!!!!!! Je ne connais pas du tout cette marque!

  55. Dat jelly rode maskertje heb ik in een grote tube, ik vind hem wel fijn!

  56. Bedankt voor de review! Heb het pomgranate masker hier nog liggen, dus moet’m nog uittesten! Overall ben ik wel fan van dit merk!

  57. Het laatste masker is wel bijzonder

  58. Hahaha grappige foto’s.
    Die peel of maskers van MJ vind ik zelf ook maar niks.
    Dat sheetmask ziet er wel iets uit dat ik eens wil proberen.
    De “gewone” maskertjes zijn trouwens ook een aanrader.

  59. i loove doing masks over the weekend its so pampering! thanks for a great review hun! xx. gigi.

  60. 25 years already and I didn’t know it either! I think masks are so good to our skins, and I liked the name Montagne de Jeunesse :) It speaks for itself! I think you look beautiful anyway, with a mask or with makeup, what proves you are natural beautiful! The scond one, I grant, was a bit tricky, but it would be for anyone :)

  61. Oh, I tried to leave a comment and it didn’t work :( Well, I said that it is 25 years old and I didn’t know it either, wow! Well, I am sure I don’t know many more things :) I think that with or without a mask you looked beautiful, so it proves you are naturally beautiful! Masks are so good, and Montagne de Jeunesse speaks for itself, the name is cool!

  62. Ik vind Peel Off mask altijd eng omdat je het er af moet trekken hiih. Het tweede masker ziet er wel heel erg fijn uit.

  63. Nice reviews, I love their Mark!xxxoo!

  64. Oh I love peel-of masks and tissue masks, they’re the best! You do look very sexy on the pictures ;)
    Mafalda ❤

  65. Ze lijken me beiden heerlijk!

  66. Oh nice! Ik zie deze maskers zo vaak. Het lijkt me leuk om ze een keer te proberen dus dit is handig ^^ thanks!

  67. Nice Sunday treatments!! ;)


  68. I haven’t tried anything like this before. Great post lovely.

  69. Hi Melissa! You ALWAYS look gorgeous, even with a mask :)
    And “never withouth black liner”, hihihi.
    I have tried both masks and the peel off was great, it was easy to peel for me, I did it in one go and the mask came off complete. The second mask unfortunately did not work for me. I have a quite sensitive skin, and I tried a little of the mud in the inner part of my under arm and got a reaction :(
    That didn’t surprised me because I’m super allergic person. But I would like to test some other masks of this brand.
    Have a nice weekend sweetie!

    • Aw, thanks Nati! I felt rrreally self-conscious posting those photos. Waking up in the morning and seeing myself au naturel in the mirror is definitely one of the low points of my day everyday, lol… I’m sorry to hear that you got a bad reaction from the mud mask :-( But at least you managed to peel off the other one in one go, that’s great :-)

  70. I going to try this ones because I don’t know them.

  71. Doe ik ook wel eens op mijn vrije dag. En toen belde de postbode aan…. charming…
