REVIEW: Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque

6:19:00 PM

Finally, after using this product for over a month I'm now ready to make a review on the Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque.  After all the raves I've seen about this product, I was so happy when I found it at "Healthy Options" SM City Cebu Northwing branch.

Product Info from Queen Helene
Mint Julep Masque is the original natural home treatment to help dry up pimples, rinse away blackheads and shrink enlarged pores. Simply apply Mint Julep Masque to your clean face and neck. As it firms and hardens within minutes, it draws out impurities from your pores. After the masque is removed, your skin will feel clean, refreshed and smooth. Even for individuals who are fortunate to be 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.

Retail Price: Php 329.00, retails around $4.00 in the US

I had a terrible breakout last month and I just happen to see this product in one of xteener's videos on Youtube.  I wasn't really looking for it, because I simply thought that this isn't available locally.  But when I made a visit to Healthy Options, I saw this on the skin care shelf.  Just imagine how surprised  I was to see this! So, I quickly picked it up, checked the price, and headed straight to the cashier.

What I like about it...
* inexpensive
* spearmint scent
* has a lot of product, 8 oz.
* gives a minty tingling sensation
* feels squeaky clean and refreshing after use
* it really does a good job of drying out pimples
* my face feels so smooth and relaxed after using
* no allergic reactions or irritation experienced
* squeeze type tube packaging is awesome, unlike other masques that comes in a jar.

What I don't like...
* I have to rinse more than once to completely remove the product
* takes about 15 minutes for the product to complete dry up
* doesn't completely remove pimples, it only shrinks and dries it up
* it would have been better if the cap was a flip type so that it won't fall off every time I open it.
* can be drying, (for reference I have normal to dry skin, I don't have enlarged pores, and I don't have noticeable blackheads)

My rating: 3 / 5


I used this every night during the first week. That was when I noticed that my breakouts have really dried up and the bumps have flattened. Since then, I have been applying this masque once or twice a week, and has kept me from having occasional bumps.

Will I repurchase? Maybe. I just don't feel that I really need this.  However, If you have large pores and have oily skin, I would highly recommend for you to try out this product.

This is it for now.
