Making My Own Face MaskWednesday, November 26, 2014
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to London with face mask extraordinaries Montagne Jeunesse
to attend a special event with them. Over the summer, they had held a competition for people to enter to win the chance to make their very own face mask. With the finalists chosen, and invited to actually come and make their mask, I was invited down to meet the finalists and make my own mask too! Being a big fan of the brand and face masks in general, I jumped at the chance to make my own mask, I chose ingredients such as clay (great for oily skin and drawing out impurities) and witch hazel and Tea Tree (antibacterial properties to fight against blemishes and blackheads.)
The event was held at The Hospital Club, and I got there early meaning I got to chat to Jenna from MJ and she told me about how MJ have been going for 30 years and their face masks are sold in over 80 countries! We discussed our favourite masks and I told her how when I was younger, my friends and I would go into town on a Saturday, choose a face mask and then apply it at a sleepover that night. I always like the peel off masks cause I used to find peeling them off fascinating! Jenna even told me how she and the other members of the office will regularly try out the masks whilst at work at their desk! How cool is that, wearing a face mask whilst at work!
The five finalists were lovely, and had some amazing mask creations. From a chai tea inspired one, to lychee and raspberry to a summery avocado, they all looked and smelt amazing! It was such a fun afternoon, and finished with some amazing lemon meringue pie which can't be knocked! You can actually vote for the face mask you like the sound of the most on the Montagne Jeunesse Facebook page, and the winner wins a trip to Paris! How cool is that?
I had such a fun afternoon, and it was lovely to hear more about the brand and how natural all the ingredients are! So tell me what would you put in a face mask if you could create one?
