One Year On - Queen Helene Mint Julep Face Mask

Queen Helene Mint Julep Face Mask

Beauty bloggers (and I more than include myself within this demographic) are guilty of proclaiming various products to be the best thing sliced bread. However how many really last the pace? Urban Decay Naked palettes come and go and what exactly happened to Rimmel Apocalips? Phased out and that is utterly fine - our tastes and needs change but a firm and most likely life time favourite of mine is Queen Helene Mint Julep Face Mask and the best part is it costs less than £4. Yes really!

Basically the Mint Julep Face Mask by Queen Helene both smells and looks like toothpaste and I guess to some degree it does behave similar, the ol' dab a blob of toothpaste on a blemish to dry it up routine. However unlike toothpaste this thick green tinted minty mask is in no way sticky and it actually works - I never had any luck with toothpaste (did anyone?)!

I bought Queen Helene Mint Julep Face Mask on whim after reading so many rave reviews on various US based blogs and put it to use as a last chance solution after a breakout. To cut a long story short a lovely cluster of teeny tiny white heads were all but obliterated after one use and I have never really looked back since. Essentially this mask dries out blemishes, helps mop up excess oil and deeply cleanses - all you'd want and expect from a clay based face mask. In my experience nothing clears my skin up quite like it and for that reason alone I will not be without it again. A word of warning is that this does dry up the skin - nothing a good night cream or hydrating face treatment (mask, serum, etc) can't solve but naturally drier skin types may want to avoid. I should also mention that it isn't paraben free (neither is a lot of skin care products) but it is cruelty free.

One of if not the best face mask I own, I return to it regularly and at less than £4 everyone should try it least once.

You can find the Queen Helene Mint Julep Face Mask via Amazon for £3.60 (that includes p&p) - link.

  1. I really, really, REALLY want to try this because I've heard such good things, but I'm not sure my dry/sensitive skin will be able to handle it! Love that it's cruelty free though.

  8. I've never heard of this. Have you tried the Glamglow mask? I wonder how they match up.

  9. A tried and true product - have been using it since my teens. And really, I never understood who was actually benefiting from the toothpaste on zits thing either. I certainly haven't!

  14. I've been using this product for over 30 years!!!! It's the best! It used to be packaged in a large plastic tub and I think I prefer the Squeeze tube. They also have a Mud Pack Mask which is excellent for drier skin that's worth a shot. Nothing makes my pore look smaller that this green mint mask, though!

  15. It's reviews like these that really make me want to buy this! I have the Aztec Healing clay mask and that's always raved about. I haven't found it to be a Holy Grail product though so maybe time to try this.
