Beauty Cult Classics: Queen Helene's Mint Julep Masque
My favorite part of my skincare routine is pampering myself with a facial mask. I’m actually embarrassed to admit the number of masks I own. Some I purchased, a few were deluxe samples and one or two were gifted. But despite my ever growing collection, there was one in particular I just had to try. The iconic Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask has been on my “Want List” for years. Why did it take me so long to purchase? I guess I got caught up in the YouTube world of fast fashion and beauty. Every week new products and brands were being pushed in my face. So much to where the oldies but goodies were forgotten about. Hence the reason I’m starting this Beauty Cult Classics series. What I hope to do remind y’all of beauty, skin and hair care items that have proven to be of great quality over the years, if not decades.
“Our original, all-time favorite green masque instantly absorbs excess oil, extracts impurities and helps minimize the appearance of pores. After use, skin is deeply clean with a fresh oil-free feel and healthy looking complexion.” - Queen Helene Website
I must admit that this mask does leave you feeling super clean without being stripped of moisture. Exfoliating before applying this mask is not something I would recommenced. Instead I follow up afterwards with the Queen Helene Mint Juelp Face Scrub. It’s gentle enough for everyday use. After using these two products, my skin just soaks up the other products in my skincare routine.
Oh and did I mention that each of these products are less that $3.00 each?
Yep. You’re welcome.
