Ever since these Montagne face packs landed in India, I have been wanting to try atleast one. I have added these sachets many a times to my cart but finally ended up chucking them out…
Finally, I did pick this Montagne Jeunesse Dead Sea Mud Pack from the local New U store along with a haircare product from the same line.
I have reviewed the Montagne Jeunesse Volume Miracle & Ultra Shine Serum already in the blog HERE.
Price: INR 150 per sachet.
Shelf life: 3 yrs.
Once opened, its good to finish it up at the earliest possible – say in 2 days time atleast.
What the product claims:
The way I see it:
The word “dead sea” got the better of me & I was all excited to try this pack… I had started imagining that post removal of the pack, I am gonna have skin as good as Cleopatra!
Jokes apart! This is really the first time I am trying something that says is from the dead sea. Naturally expectations were high.
The pack is of ice-blue color and is creamy in consistency. (I freaked out my 3 yr. old neighbor’s kid with this face pack on, who lovingly came running to me..she calls me ‘auntiee’, tat’s a different story!)
It applies easily on the skin and you wouldn’t need to layer it also. Plus it washes off quickly too.
One sachet would last 2 uses if used both on the face & neck. It is also advised to store this in the refrigerator until your next usage, once open.
It dries quickly in 7-8 minutes & turns to a whitish blue. I can’t remember how this pack smelled…
I always massage my face pack with some rose water spritzed over once they dry, which I did with this one too.
Upon removal, I noticed clear, bright skin that would actually give one the sense that it has been ‘cleansed’.
Since in summers my skin is tends to be a little on the combination type, I didn’t feel much drying caused by this face pack. Otherwise, I am sure this face pack would have been a little drying on me during the dry months.
What I was trying to say in the above line is – a moisturiser follow-up is necessary! :p
The brightness as expected was short-lived, for about 2-3 hrs. after usage.
Overall, this is a decent face pack for those who are looking for deep cleansing ones or quick fix in time of a hurry.
I have mixed feeling about this face pack mainly driven by the factor that it comes in a “sachet” – I hate products that come in a sachet!
But yeah.. these sachets can be handy while travelling.

- Brightens too (short-lived!)
