Wine + Mask Wednesday (Cono Sur Viogner + Montagne Jeunesse Apricot Scrub Mask Review)

My theme for this week's Wine + Mask Wednesday is: Apricots! yum!! 

Here is my wine of the week:

Cono Sur Viogner ~ $15.99. Dressed in a beautiful medium golden color, characteristic of this variety, this Viognier exhibits sweet fruity aromas of apricots, citrus and peaches, combined with pleasant oak notes. Fresh and lively in mouth, this wine, with concentrated stone fruit flavors, is fresh, tasty, full and savoury. Of great character, density and structure, with a good acidity level and great persistence.

I have featured Cono Sur wine on here before and I am a big fan! (Sorry this week I didn't take such a close up photo of the bottle) Here is a look at the wine:

The wine is very fruity and flavorful! It is smooth and rich - it is a great sipping wine but could also hold up to a meal. It is fruity but not overly sweet which will appeal to a variety of wine drinkers! If you come across a South American Viogner, I would highly recommend you give it a try! 

Now, here is a look at an "apricot" based mask:

Montagne Jeunesse Apricot Scrub Deep Exfoliating & Ultra Cleansing Mask ~ $1.87. Bursting with sweet Mango this rich facial scrub cleanses & revitalizes. Crushed Apricot Kernels remove dead skin cells whilst Aloe Vera softens & soothes leaving skin radiant. Exfoliate with this treat weekly. Montagne Jeunesse products are BUAV Approved, Vegetarian Standard - we are Vegetarian and animals are our friends.

I just received this in a swap and was excited to try it out! 
To use this mask: wash face, apply mask and rub in to skin, let sit for 5-10 minutes, rinse off, and complete skincare routine.
Here is how the mask looks first applied:

And here is after 10 minutes:

This mask smells sooooo good! It is so fruity and fresh smelling - it had a very gentle exfoliating factor and made my skin feel so soft! I am very happy with this mask - I have always seen these at Walmart and never picked them up, but I will pick some up now!
