Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque Review

Wednesday, 20 February 2013
I think skin is the most important thing when it comes to beauty. 

I spend more time and money on my skin than I do on the rest of my face or body. Since it's so important, I don't mind paying a bit extra for skin products as  I've always found that 'you get what you pay for.' However .. there's nothing better than finding an excellent product
 for less than ten pounds. 

I suffer from occasional breakouts on my chin and forehead which is most triggered by bad diet. My skin was awful around Christmas as the healthiest thing I ate throughout December was a chocolate orange. (not sorry!)

I was on a hunt for a new face mask after getting average results from most products. I love using Make Up Alley for reviews and one of the most popular face masks was the Queen Helene Mint Julepe Mask.

I found it on Amazon for £6.13 so decided to give it a go!

On first impression, I thought 'this smells like toothpaste', remembered the ancient tip to put toothpaste on spots and thought..

                      'have I been tricked into a £6.00 toothpaste mask?'

But I really, really love this mask. 

I love how you can see the mask tackling the bad areas of your skin as the cleaner, unblemished areas dry a lot quicker. The problem areas take up to about 10 minutes to dry depending on your skin type. 

Mint Julepe mask review
( Ended up wearing the mask while writing this post. And my onesie! )

I followed advice from the reviews on Make Up Alley and slept wearing this mask. In the morning, I noticed that my skin felt sooo soft, any spots had dried up and my skin absorbed my make up a lot better.

Over the next 2/3 weeks, my skin was completely blemish-free and my pores were noticeably smaller. 

I sleep with this mask on around twice a week and honestly
I can't remember the last time I had a breakout.

Overall, this is a definite winner for me!

  1. Hey! Howblong have you been using his mask? Also, do you have sensitive skin? X

    1. Hey sorry I thought I'd mentioned that in the post but must have edited it out :( I do have really sensitive skin and it can get quite irritated by certain products. I found that this mask tingled when I first put it on, which worried me a wee bit but after a few seconds it goes away and works perfectly! I just apply moisturiser afterwards and my skin loves it xxx

  2. great review, this product looks great!

    thankyou for your comment on my blog. I love yours and I have followed you :)



    1. Hey thanks! Love your blog too and thanks for following :) xxx

  3. As you sleep, does it flake off? I usually have that problem when I'm only wearing it for 30 minutes.

    Love your blog! New follower on GFC<3

  4. Yeah it can do. I try to try and put it on my bad areas at night which is my forehead and most of my chin so it's not so bad. I'd maybe sleep on a towel if I was doing the full face. Thanks so much for following :) xxx
