I don’t usually buy masks since I prefer to make my own at home, apart from my trusted Himalaya’s Neem Face Mask which I absolutely love, apart from my trusted Himalaya’s Neem Face Mask which I absolutely love and use it once a week since it doubles up as a scrub as well!
But there is one masque which I wanted to try since a very long time , its Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Masque. This mask has been raved like crazy for oily to acne prone skin so obviously when I got a chance to try this amazing mask I got my hands on it and now having used it for around 2 weeks I am ready to review it for you wonderful gals out there 🙂

Mint Julep Masque
Mint Julep Masque is the original natural home treatment developed by a dermatologist that helps dry up acne pimples, rinse away blackheads and shrink enlarged pores. Simply apply Mint Julep Masque to your clean face and neck. Within minutes it firms and hardens, drawing out impurities from your pores. After the masque is removed, your skin will feel clean, refreshed and smooth. Even for individuals who are fortunately free of skin problems, Mint Julep Masque is a refreshing facial treatment that helps relax tired muscles and ease tension lines on the face and neck.
Cleanse face and neck thoroughly. Apply Mint Julep Masque generously and allow to dry for about 15 minutes. Remove with warm water and a washcloth.
Caution: Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with cool tap water. For external use only. Keep out of the reach of children.

My Experience with Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque:
The first time I got this mask I was amazed by the size of it! It is huge as compared to my regular himalaya neem face mask! The mask comes in white green tube packaging with a green colored cap. Very standard packaging nothing attractive about it but then with the price I don’t have any complains!

The mask is sea green in color and smells so fresh! It reminds of smell and taste of wringley’s chewing but much fresher! The consistency is very much like a clay mask but spreads easily on skin. There are absolutely no lumps in the mask and comes out very smooth. It reminds me of TBS Tea Tree face mask a lot in terms of consistency but this one is a lot thicker and works better.

On face it gives very mild tingling sensation which I really like. I actually have the mask on my face right now while writing this review 🙂 The mask dries in 15 to 20 mins but does not give that stretchy tight feeling, you know when some masks make your skin so tight that when you laugh it hurts!
Now for the most important part..does it work? YES! it does! It removes all the dirt from pores making them so clean! After I wash my face the pores are almost invisible, if course this is temporary but still very much visible. Currently I don’t have active cystic pimples but this mask definitely reduces the redness on my cheeks and calms the irritated skin

It also works very effectively on whiteheads! I dont have major problem with blackhead but I do get few whiteheads here and there and after using this mask I have seen the whiteheads reduced a lot and the ones that are there have loosened up! Wow! I am sure it will work on blackheads too!
A fantastic mask for all skin types I believe since it does not dry out the skin so even dry skinned girls should love it! Deep cleanses the skin, works on zits, redness, whiteheads/blackheads and pimples! A must try for everyone!
