2015 Holiday Gift Guide – Stocking Stuffer Idea!
Every since I was in my 20’s I’ve had to be careful about the type of skin care products I use on my face. One’s that contain mostly or only natural ingredients are the one’s I find work the best. And while I have tried several great cleansers, moisturizers and scrubs, I hadn’t had much luck finding a mask that wouldn’t irritate my skin. Until I tried 7th Heaven face masks.
7th Heaven, previously known as Montagne Jeunesse, makes a variety of affordable and effective skin care treatments sold in individual sachets. Why the name change? Well this year (2015) marked the big 3-0 for Montagne Jeunesse. As a way to celebrate, they changed the name to 7th Heaven based on feedback from their supporters and fans. Along with the name change, 7th Heaven have also given their masks a makeover, as well as added all natural spring water to their list of natural ingredients. Aside from that, 7th Heaven face masks are still made using natural ingredients derived from plant and mineral sources, with minimal processing. Their products are also vegetarian-certified, never tested on animals, and many are even suitable for vegans.
If masks are an integral part of your skin care regimen, then 7th Heaven face masks are definitely worth a try! With 6 different types of masks, each available in a variety of “flavors”, your practically guaranteed to find at least a few you can’t live without! The six mask categories include: Mud, Peel Off, Sauna, Scrub, Sheet, and Soufflé**. Each mask comes in a single use sachet and retails for about $1.99. That is way less expensive than any spa treatment out there, especially since each sachet contains more than enough product to cover your face and neck in a thick even layer!
**UPDATE** As of 2016, the categories of masks are now called Mud, Peel Off, Self Heat, Exfoliating, Fabric Serum Infused, and Fabric Clay Infused.
7th Heaven Face Masks Review: Argan Oil Mud and Tea Tree Peel-Off
So far I’ve tried the Tea Tree Peel Off and the Argan Oil Mud masks, and I’d be hard pressed to pick my favorite as they both work great!
Part of the Mud mask line, the Argan Oil Mud mask is ideal for combination and oily skin. Moroccan Argan Oil and antioxidant rich Acai Berries work together to deeply cleanse pores, balance oils and bring tired, dull skin back to life. Simply cleanse your face as usual, apply the mask, relax for about 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the single use packet was the aroma – a pleasantly clean, sweet scent. The mud mask itself has a nice creamy consistency and there is enough in the sachet to spread an even layer over my entire face and still have enough left for a second treatment. The mud mask began drying rather quickly, and was completely dry within 11 minutes. Once I rinsed, my skin looked so clean and fresh, and it felt very soft and supple – without any over-drying! I’ve been using this particular mud mask for about 4 weeks now, and I still love the way it leaves my skin looking and feeling!
The second 7th Heaven face mask I’ve been using for a little over a month now is the Tea Tree Peel-Off mask. This super-soothing peel-off mask uses Tea Tree, Witch Hazel & Canadian Willowherb to de-stress and soothe your skin while purging your pores of dirt, oil and other impurities. It is ideal for all skin types including oily, normal and combination, and works very well at targeting combination skin in the T-Zone and other problem areas.
Like the Argan Oil Mud mask, this one has a great scent, too! After cleansing simply apply the mask, let dry and work for about 15-20 minutes, then peel it off. It does feel sticky as you apply the mask, but it dries quickly. You’ll be able to tell it is working by its super cooling tingle that invigorates the skin, and you’ll love how great your skin looks and feels once you peel it off.
