Montagne Jeunesse Goji Berry Body Smoothie Review, PhotosFriday, June 21, 2013
Edit: I have heard these will be arriving in stores by the end of June and will have a suggested retail price of $9.99!
Happy Summer Solstice (or Winter Solstice, if you're upside-down)!
Montagne Jeunesse, the brand behind the iconic face masks with the strange packaging illustrations (you'll know 'em when you see 'em!), has some awesome new products launching soon! Among them are four new Body Smoothies* (Goji Berry, Buriti Fruit, Acai, and Black Raspberry), a fast-absorbing spin on the traditional body butter.
I have Goji Berry to show you today! Enriched with awesome ingredients like shea butter, jojoba oil, peach kernel oil, Goji berry fruit extract, and more, this Body Smoothie has an amazing scent that really does remind me of a freshly-blended smoothie.

This Body Smoothie has an interesting texture -- it's whipped with a jelly-like consistency, which took me a short while to get used to, but I really like it now. The product claims to "absorb into skin within seconds" and I mostly agree with that. It definitely absorbs faster than a typical body butter, soaking into skin quickly, though it takes a few minutes to completely absorb.

My skin is left smooth and soft after application. The scent does linger a bit, but it's not as strong when smelled in the tub. I think the jelly-like texture really helps with the fast absorption -- there's also no residue and I don't have to spend a lot of time massaging it into skin.
What's also great about this product -- like all of Montagne Jeunesse's offerings -- is that it's not tested on animals, is vegetarian, and contains mostly natural ingredients. I think it's a nice, affordable alternative to The Body Shop's body butters, especially if you want something that absorbs faster while still packing a lot of moisture. It's also perfect for summer!

I'm not sure when these will be launching in North America, but they are already available in the UK for £6.49 each. The conversion to CAD is $10.46, so I imagine the price will be around that! I'll update this post when I find out more details.
For now, Montagne-Jeunesse products are available at Walmart, London Drugs, plus select Pharmasave, Jean Coutu, Uniprix, Familprix, Guardian, IDA, and Lawtons.
What are your favourite Montagne-Jeunesse products? I love their crazy face masks, and now this!
