Queen Helene: Mint Julep Masque Review! :)

Friday, October 25, 2013

Today I will be reviewing one of the best face mask that I have ever tried! The Queen Helene mint julep masque. I bought this from the Healthy Options for Php 329 (?) I know it's a no secret to many of you the wonders of this face masque because Queen Helene Mint Julep is the most raved about facemask anywhere in the entire world.  It is the original natural home treatment developed by a dermatologist that helps dry up acne pimples, rinse away blackheads and shrink enlarged pores.

I personally use this to dry up or to combat any bumps or pimples from becoming bigger. This is also really good for those with oily skin because it can suck up the oil and mattify the skin! Although for those with dry skin I suggest using this for like once a week. And please always always avoid the eye area as it can really dry your under eye more which can lead to wrinkles.

This face mask has a very minty feel to it and smells like one, hence the name. It actually comes out as clay but once put on your face it gets harder and harder until you can't move your face anymore. It can also sting a bit especially if you have like an active acne on your face but it should go away after a few minutes. This mask is also good for removing the blackheads and shrinking the pores.. 

I personally like putting this mask on my whole entire face when I need some pampering and when I feel like I need some deep cleaning to get out all the gunk in my pores.. I leave this on preferably for 15 to 30 minutes. But when I don't feel like doing so, what I do is I just put a wee bit and dot it on my pimples and then leave it on for overnight and it works like an overnight acne spot treatment. Although I don't do this very often because I have other acne spot treatment like the TriAcneal from AVENE! But it's really good for drying up your pimples nonetheless! Below are the proof how effective it is for drying up the pimples. I was kinda breaking out recently due to my upcoming TOM (time of the month) but mainly I think it was because of the OLAY age protect that I was using. I think I should have bought the lotion type instead of the cream.. but anyways, I've read some reviews online though that the OLAY age protect actually did give them breakouts too so I stopped. And yep, I am again on the hunt for a good anti wrinkle cream out there. Care to suggest?

So anyways here as you can see from the photo above after using the mint julep, the badboy zit on my left cheek has completely dried out the next day.. but ofcourse it was also because of the help of my good ole night time skincare routine. But I do believe that every girl should have this!! This works wonders and your skin can definitely benefit from it.. I can honestly say that this mask really did help my skin to become better 
in a really really drastic way. I love this and I will definitely repurchase this again and again. I also want to try the Queen Helene mud pack which caters to soften the fine lines and tighten the skin for a more firm look.

If you don't have this mask yet, you go grab one! your skin will thank you for it. :)

  10. Just got this today and tried it when I got home. No sting or anything upon trying it for the first time. My skin and pores feels relaxed, clean and my pores look less visible unlike before I use it. It definitely does shrink the pores! I'm loving it already even on my first use. Hopefully I could do a review of it soon.
