This will give you results! I bought it yesterday, used it last night, and woke up amazed! I first washed my face with a gentle cleanser, applied this on (to target areas--not to my entire face) and slept with it overnight. The minty feeling definitely felt good. Did not have a burning sensation or anything. Woke up, washed it off (was definitely not hard to wash off. Just use warm water) and ran around my house screaming to my entire family, "look at my face!" And they agreed my face looked so much clearer. I followed up with a toner and moisturizer. I suffer from acne and have those annoying marks from past acne and this helped make my skin clearer as well as help reduce the pimples that are currently on my face. I've only had this product for a day and I already love it.

I bought this back in December 2009 when I was revamping my skincare routine. I never used a mask before and thought I was missing out on something that could be helpful for my skin. I would describe my skin to be sensitive combination skin with PMS acne (1-3 pimples only). Seeing that this product (Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque) is intended to dry up pimples, I thought it would be a beneficial purchase. When I first applied it, I felt that although it stung temporarily, after washing it off, it delivered immediate results where my skin appeared non-oily, soft, with the appearance of minimized pores. I thought, "Great! Just what I need!". So I added it to my regimen using it once a week, sometimes 3x's at most. Two weeks later, I noticed I was breaking out more than usual and thought it had been from other factors. For 4 AGGRAVATING MONTHS, I had suffered from repeated massive breakouts without ever thinking that it was this mask that was causing all this damage to my skin!!! After days of research I stumbled upon a site which states that Kaolin and Bentonite, which are the first three ingredients listed in this product, have pore-clogging properties and suffocates the skin! On top of that, the ingredient "Phenoxyethanol" is considered a severe and dangerous neutrotoxin causing cognitive impairment! Please STAY AWAY FROM THIS!!!

    Comments about Queen Helene Masque, Mint Julep, 8 oz:

    I love this mask. First it smells amazing, just like mint and gives a tingly sensation at first. I have been using this mask for 4+ years and I have seen such great results with this mask. It has helped to reduce the appearance of my blackheads and it helps the overfall face skin to be smooth and acne free. Plus it is not that expensive, and relatively affordable.
    The only down side is that this product contain parabens. However, I recommend this to anyone with any skin type, except dry or flaky. It does not dry out your skin but I do not have dry skin, so I cannot say how it would go for people with that kind of skin type.

        I use this once a week. Skin feels great and it helped my blackheads. I had a couple breakouts after I used it the second time, but I figure I was going to get those anyway! Also a nice way to make yourself relax...leave on for 15 minutes and just chill out until it dries!

          Comments about Queen Helene Masque, Mint Julep, 8 oz:

          I just started using this along with the Queen Helene Grape Seed Extract Peel Off Masque so I don't know whether one performs better than the other or whether it is a combination of the two, but I have been very pleased with the change in my skin in the 2 weeks that I have used the product. My face is smoother, softer, and I have a healthy glow. I never wore a lot of makeup to begin with, and I have not put anything on my face since I started this new regimen. I have been using the masque a few times a week. The product description says it draws impurities from the pores which is what attracted me to it. I've only noticed a slight difference here and recognize that I may have unrealistic expectations for cleaning/shrinking the pores on my nose.

            I love this product! Last night I tried some new toner which totally ruined my skin in 10 seconds! I put this mask on overnight and wah-la! My skin was beautiful the next morning! My skin is smooth, even, soft, and not so oily like normal. I didn't even use my normal cleanser afraid it would ruin the effects.

            Comments about Queen Helene Masque, Mint Julep, 8 oz:

            This mask is my secret weapon, I keep trying other things and going back to this natural, super cheap miracle worker. I've tried $40-60 face masks repeatedly with nowhere near the results I get with the Mint mask. I use the mask 1-2 times weekly to keep breakouts at bay and especially if I'm having a breakout/excess oil due to hormones or stress. I'm nearing 30 so even though I have combination skin, I still need a product that feels like it's doing more than just drying my skin, this one is it! The mint relaxes the face muscles, it feels like your skin is plumping up and being exfoliated as well as drying out excess oil and blackheads. The mint in this mask might be slightly uncomfortable for some people, almost like using a muscle rub, and the scent can be a little irritating to the eyes. I do recommend using a heavy night moisturizer after using this mask if your skin tends to be dryer or normal.

              I love this stuff, it's super cheap and does wonders! I usually use it about 1-2 times a week. I have acne-prone and sensitive skin, this does not sting at all when i put it on. I leave the mask on for about 15 minutes, until it's completely dry, and you can see and the dirt and oil it sucked out of your pores even before you wash it off! After washing off the mask my pores are cleared out and even some pimples have started to dry up.

                Was looking for an alternative to Lush's Mask of Magnaminty and this was a good one! Have heard lots of good reviews about this, and bought it to try. I alternate this with Lush's mask and I'd say it's equally as good.

                  This is a great deal. I normally use more pricey, charcoal masks. I tried my mom's mint julep mask and I am impressed. It applies dense and smoothly, and creates a tingly minty sensation. All masks make my face feel tighter and cleaner, but this product makes my pores smaller. More effective than the expensive brands at reducing pore size. You also get a lot more for a very low price. After using this mask, I will try more of Queen Helene's products.
