Product Review: Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque


I know I’m all about the DIY business but I just decided to try something new – specifically a mud/clay mask and this was the first thing I could lay my hands on plus the ingredient list was pretty safe and decent.

Full Name:
Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque. Complexion solution. Deeply cleans and refreshes. Oily and acne prone skin.

First impressions.
I particularly love the fact that it comes in a tube which helps to control usage and contain wastage. Secondly, it has a minty scent which smells like toothpaste.

Product Promise.
Our original all-time favorite green masque instantly absorbs excess oil, extracts impurities and helps minimize the appearance of pores. After use, skin is deeply clean with a fresh oil-free and healthy looking complexion.

Apply over cleansed face. Avoid eye areas. After 5 to 10 minutes, rinse with water.

Aqua (Water), Kaolin, Bentonite, Glycerine, Zinc Oxide, Propylene Glycol, Mentha Viridis(Spearmint) Leaf Oil, Sulfur, Methylparaben, Phenoxyethanol, Limonène, Fragrance(Parfum), Chromium Oxide Greens(CI77288).


My experience.
Contrary to the directions, I applied pea sized quantities – a little goes a long way which is also why it’s a good investment. It will last for a long time – on my face without cleansing previously. I figured if it was gonna deeply clean my face, why do I need to cleanse beforehand again? After application, I noticed a rather strong sensation which of course is as a result of the Spearmint leaf oil and maybe a bit of sulfur. Nevertheless, it wasn’t something I could not handle. I also loved the fact that it didn’t take forever to dry. It dries on application instantly. Plus, I didn’t see the need to leave it for a long time. So after about15 minutes, I rinsed out which also quite easy. When I was done, my face felt refreshed, thoroughly clean and not excessively dry. I didn’t even need to cleanse again, just moisturize.

It got the job done and stayed true to its promises. Easy to apply, easy to rinse out. So yeah, it definitely is a staple. Although they didn’t specify the frequency of use, I’m sticking to twice weekly.
