My sister-in-law and I love having little in-house spa nights when I visit her and my brother in Kingston. We spend hours shopping at Shoppers Drugmart and drool over cosmetics and all kinds of neat beauty supplies. I know...sad. lol We're like school girls when we're at Shoppers and then we rush home to try our new goodies (after making a pit-stop at Tim Horton's! lol). Hey, I might as well indulge in what the city has to offer while I'm there, cuz there ain't none o' this stuff on Manitizzle!

We discovered Montagne Jeunesse products and boy, are they ever neat. The company offers a range of products from facial care, hair care, body care, foot & leg care and shower & bath. The products smell wonderful and it's natural skin care that is cruelty-free (non-animal tested)," Vegetarian Society approved and carefully scrutinized for their impact on the environment".

Elisha and I have tested out some of the facial masks and foot treatment (for those aching footsies). We both loved the Red Hot Earth Sauna Masque. The stuff instantly warms up on damp skin, removes impurities and clears excess oils. You just apply it and leave it on for a few minutes and wash it off with water. Your skin feels soooooo good after. Welllllll....for Christmas, Elisha sent me some MJ products (since the nearest Shoppers is 2 hrs away!!!) and for for kicks, I pampered myself last night.

Can I tell you how brutal it was? The exact same product that I loved a few months ago, I can't use now! The initial result was fantastic, but moments later, I started getting really itchy and then my face started turning red, bumpy and blotchy!! Really sucks because I love the stuff! I've never had any problems with MJ products why now???

Do you think products like these have a shelf-life? I searched the package for an expiry date but couldn't find one.

Since I'm such a glutton for punishment, and really love Montagne Jeunesse I will give it another go. How can something so good be so bad for my skin? I've got a packet of Dead Sea Mud Pac Masque, so I'll try it out and see what happens. If I get the same horrible reaction, then I'll discontinue using the products. Weird, because I have VERY sensitive skin and MJ products seemed to work well for me before. Plus I like that the products are made with quality ingredients.

That sucks, I hope the second mask is better. I love thier products--that anti-stress bath is so nice, and I love the face tonics!!!

I did the other mask and it was fine :) YAY!!! Don't have to swear of the Montagne Jeunesse products! Don't know why I had that reaction. I had tried the hot mask several times before and nothing happened. Anyway...

I think I'll try that anti-stress bath! Sounds divine!!
