Blast Those Bumps! (Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque Review)

Ok so this review is long over due but I really was on the fence with this initially. Don't get me wrong, it's a great, cheap, easy to acquire product. But I was so expecting to be blown away right off the bat and really wasn't. I love a mask, but this was no better than others- or so I thought. From all the reviews I've read, I expected my face to be transformed into Heidi Klum when I washed the green stuff off. It wasn't! Bummer huh? Haha! But after using this mask off and on for a few months here's my opinion- 

This really is a MUST HAVE product. 

First off- This product is soooo easy to find. Usually when I read about a product and decide I want to buy it, the search for it begins. Not with this. I got mine at Sally's Beauty Supply but I have seen this mask at every big box retailer and drugstore I've been to. 

Second- This product is so so cheap. I paid $3.29! And you get a good amount of product for your money.

Third- It works. It really does. You can use it as a mask or as a spot treatment. The mask feels like it's sucking the gunk out of your pores, and the spot treatment seriously reduces the size of my breakouts. Put it on at night and by morning the pimple has shrunk.

Overall- I love this product and will continue to buy it over and over again from now on. I've had a red dot on my nose since I was 16 (yes 16! I'm 24) and I could not get it to go away for anything. Using this, with a combo of the much talked about aspirin mask, has made my spot disappear! Poof! Gone. 

I also want to try all the other Queen Helene mask, scrubs, and creams. I've seen a mud mask that looks so good! Has anyone tried any other Queen Helene items? And I don't know why I chose the jar but I know this also comes in a tube and I was wondering how much of a difference (if any) it is. 


  1. OMG u had a red spot on your nose too?! one appeared on my nose when i was about 16, im 18 now and its still there! its not like a normal spot/pimple though its flat/cant be felt and really red! so anoying it wont cover up with makeup either coz its so red. i kept using this certain facewash from LUSH last month and a head formed then it started to dry up, then it disapeared!! but 2 weeks later its back in exactly the same place and even redder. i just ordered this mask (im in the UK its not available here) its worth a try! x

  2. that's exactly how my spot was. I finally accepted it as a part of me, thinking it would never go away. But now that's it gone I'm so happy and (crosses fingers) it hasn't came back since. Good Luck!

  3. lol did you ever find out what the spot was called? my doctor told me but i forgot! i just used the mint mask for the first time, love it so far! hopefully it works on my red dot!

  4. No I never did find out. And I never asked a doctor. I probably should have though... :s
