Best Drug Store Masque


Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque

I love doing home facials, especially on Friday nights after a long work week. 
Queen Helene makes a few different types – mud, grape seed peel off, and a mint julep masque.  I have not tried the mud, but LOVE the mint julep masque.


The mint julep masque has been around forever, and probably has received better reviews than some of the higher end products.  This masque will help shrink pores, clear up acne, and help with all the impurities trapped in your 
pores.   



I wash my face before, applying with Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub.  Next, I apply the masque, when applying around my eyes I use my ring fingers.  This will help prevent fine lines, and wrinkles.  You should always use your ring finger when applying moisturizer or makeup around your eyes.  Your ring finger has the lightest touch, and won’t pull your skin causing wrinkles.


I love this masque.  It feels refreshing, cool, and tingly for the first few minutes.  The mint smell is very relaxing too.  I normally leave the masque on for about thirty minutes.  You can also dab the masque on problem areas, and leave on overnight.  After the masque has hardened, you can remove it with cool water.  I apply a moisturizer while my skin is still damp – Olay Total Effects Moisturizer. 

For under $5 you really can’t beat the price, and this product isn't tested on animals.  The only downside to the masque is the smell once it dries.
