This $2 Peel-Off Face Mask is More Like Therapy Than Skin Care

The Montagne Jeunesse Black Seaweed Peel Off Mask is like a Bioré Pore Strip, but for your entire face.


Remember when you were little and put Elmer’s glue on your hand, just to peel it off when it was dry? This mask is that, but for your face. It peels off all of the dirt and impurities you didn’t even know were there in one, satisfying rip.

The first time I used this $2 mask, I was incredibly skeptical, mainly because the packaging is absolutely terrifying and definitely cheap-looking. But now, I tell every single person asking for face mask recommendations to buy it. It’s cheap and it works better than any other cleansing mask I own (and I have an entire shelf dedicated to face masks in my bathroom).

Somehow, this little packet of black magic not only cleans your skin, but makes it softer and smoother after one use. It’s also incredibly cathartic to peel off one big swatch of black stuff with all the dirt and oil from your day stuck to it.

Stock up on them, because you’ll get addicted.
