CBB Montagne Jeunesse Challenge: Crushed Apricot Scrub Masque

It's time for the Canadian Beauty Bloggers Montagne Jeunesse Mask Challenge! Over the next 2 weeks me and my fellow CBB members will be partaking in this challenge thanks to Farley Co Beauty. Every week we will be trying and reviewing a different mask. At the end we will tally up the results and see which mask is the winner! Make sure to follow the hashtag #CBBMJMASKOFF to see all of our crazy face mask pictures.

Week 4 is Scrub masks, and we are trying and reviewing the Crushed Apricot and Mango Masque.

"Montagne Jeunesse Crushed Apricot and Mango Masque. Bursting with sweet mango this rich facial scrub deep cleanses & revitalizes. Crushed Apricot Kernels remove dead skin cells whilst Aloe Vera softens & soothes, leaving skin radiant."
This mask was light yellow in colour, with brown specks which were the crushed apricot. It smelt quite fruity, almost exactly like the St. Ives Apricot Scrub.

I applied this mask with a brush, like the previous ones. It went on smoothly, and felt quite cool. I could feel the apricot scrubbies exfoliating my face as I applied it. I left it on for 10-15 minutes, and by that time it was completely dry on my face. It did not get as hard as the Mud mask last week. I could still move my face and make expressions, but there was a slight tightness.

Removal was fairly easy. I used warm water and a wash cloth, and massaged it off in circular motions in order to get the most from the exfoliation aspect. The creamy aspect of the mask removed easily, but the little apricot scrubbies were kind of a pain to get off. I had to rinse my face a few times to get it all off.

I was left with super smooth, cleansed, and soft skin. My skin didn't feel tight and dry, but it didn't feel super hydrated either. It just felt normal, and good. I toned and moisturized like normal after, and my skin felt great for the rest of the day. I also felt like my foundation went on better than ever after using this.

Comfort 5/5
Aroma 5/5
Results 5/5
Ease of Use 4/5 - Mask left lots of scrubby bits on my face that required quite a few rinses.
Total Score 19/20
