Montagne Jeunesse Acai Body Smoothie


I think it's pretty safe to say that at one point or another, we've all used a Montange Jeunesse face mask. They're cheap, they're effective, and if you get one of the peeling ones, they're downright fun! I get way too much enjoyment out of the peel off ones...

Anyway, it's time for the face masks to shove over. They've got company! Montange Jeunesse has recently released a line of of body butters and scrubs. I've been using one of the butters smoothies and have to say the scent alone will make you a fan.

Montange Jeunesse Acai Body Smoothie* 200ml $9.99

'Bye bye dryness, hello velvety soft skin! Smear this super juicy smoothie over dry bits to replenish essential moisture. A creamy combination of pulped Acai Berries from the depths of the Amazon, Pomegranate & Cranberries all bursting with Antioxidants – it’s pulped protection at its best!

We use a completely Unique Liquid Crystal System derived from Olive Oil, which is responsible for the easy skin penetration, with a soft, silky smooth after feel. This system works more effectively than traditional body butters to lower the trans-epidermal water loss thereby providing retention of skin moisture and leaving the skin super hydrated.'

As mentioned, this smells ah-maaazing! It's a sweet, berry like scent, that is so good. I could literally just sit and sniff it. It's not cloyingly sweet, it has a bit of a tartness, and leaves skin quite scented. There are a few different versions- all with a blend of superfruits- so there should be a fruity scent for everyone.

What really makes an interesting product is the texture- it's a cross between being jelly like and fluffy. It's light yet kind of squishy... unlike anything I've tried before, and a very girly purpley-pink shade. I've found that this takes a moment to sort of melt on skin, but once it does it absorbs pretty quickly. It isn't greasy on skin and it hydrates pretty well. I wouldn't call it intensely hydrating, but lasts well throughout the day on my dry skin and leaves it not only smelling pretty great, but also feeling smooth.

Overall, I really like this moisturizer! I received this from Farley Co, and will be available on their site as of the end of June. This line will also be available at select Pharmasave locations, beginning in late June. Will you be trying these?
