Product Review: Queen Helene - Mint Julep Masque

Soo after the bar exam, I started going to a new threading lady because the one Id been going to since I moved to Greensboro just up and closed her salon down for 3 mos and I was like "I cannot wait any longer to get my eyebrows done, Im looking man-ish" so like any other Indian lady I went to the Indian grocery store in town and asked around for other ladies who do threading.  I used to wax but my face got so sensitive, I've been doing full face threading for the past 6 years. It's really great, my face instantly brightens and is so smooth and everything. Sooo, naturally I was extremely hesitant to go to a new lady given the fact that Im not big on change... WELL. she was pretty good but a little more 'indian' if that makes sense.. ANYWAYS.  I got a facial w her after the first time I got her to do my threading and it was an.. experience. well, the mask she used felt amazing so I figured, let me try doing a mask at home 2x a wk like the lady told me and maybe thatd help w my recent breakouts/oily face!

I went to Sally Beauty to check out the different options they had and I settled on a small tub of Queen Helene's Mint Julep Masque.

 In case you're wondering, Queen Helene's is the same company that males that famous cocoa butter that I'm sure most parents' houses always had growing up, I know my parents swore by Queen Helene's Cocoa Butter lotion and I loved using it growing up!

ANYWAYS. Onto the mask review! It was a little awkward sticking my fingers into the tub so I used a qtip to get the goop out and not in my nails! The smell was a delightful minty scent and had a wonderful little tingly feeling upon application!  I only had to put a thin layer on and based on the reviews frm I decided to keep it on for longer than the time on the directions (~15 mins) and I kept it on for about 45 mins.
my beautiful face w the mask on!
After a while the mask started to crack and crumble on my lap but it wasnt too bad.  To take it off, I used a washcloth and warm water b/c I didn't want to make a mess in the bathroom and it worked out perfectly!  I was slightly concerned based on other reviews that the mask leaves a pungent stench on your face but I didn't really notice it that much.  A lot of the not so favorable reviews listed that their faces were too tight and dry and itchy after taking the mask off but I dont understand how dumb they are; the mask is designed specifically to pull out all the gunk and bad things in your face/skin/pores and minimize the appearance of your pores. the mask does exactly what it is supposed to do! All I did was put on a little oil of olay moisturizer (my go-to for the past um, 12-15 years??) and I felt AMAZING.  I definitely recommend this face mask, and it's super economical!  I can't remember exactly how much I paid for it at Sally Beauty w my sally card but it's only $4.71 for an 8oz tube at!!!

All in all, I definitely recommend this product to everyone! It feels amazing and its all fun and bright green and stuff! hahah warning though you look silly w it on so do it when you're home alone! I, of course, dont care so I put a picture of this online hahah
