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 have used this product for many years, about once a week. It minimized pores on my combination skin. Not sure when it happened, but the ingredients have changed and Sulphur has been removed. My skin has always responded well to Sulphur, better than the various peroxide compounds. I thought regular users might want to know that the ingredients have changed.

        I dunno why many people find it effective but i dont see any change or improvement on my skin after a month using it. Sometimes it even made my skin worse (i think so). I wont purchase this product again.

          This is a wonderful mask for acne-prone skin. The spearmint scent is amazing, and the ingredients are non-comedogenic. It works wonders with sinking deep in my pores and sopping up oil. My skin feels refreshed and clean but not tight or dried out. I also love that the clay dries in less than 10 minutes and is easy to wash off!

          I see my friends bought this product again and again, so i wanted to buy it. And it is so good to treat my acne or a breakout-gonnabe. I used to use an expensive product to treat my acne, but surprisingly i can rely on this product. The bad thing is that i should close my eyes for a minute after applying it.

            This product has been around for at least 40 years and is still effective and affordable. As soon as you detect the beginning of a break out, use Queen Helene. My husband uses it as well for the occasional break out.

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

              There is nothing I like about this product (in terms of benefitting my skin). I have been using this about once a week for a little over a year now. I've tried this as a 10min mask, and 40 min mask, and even overnight on pimples.

              Pros:
              Cheap
              tightens skin
              Can draw open pores for blackhead removal (but need to use a nose strip right after to remove it, or extract yourself)

              Cons:
              Breaks me out
              Difficult to wash off (So I tend to cleanse again after)
              Doesn't shrink my pimples I need shrinking
              Doesn't do anything for my blackheads really either by iteself.
              Dries my skin out as well.

                I use this as a spot treatment for blemishes, dab it on overnight and, voila!, amazing reduction in size and appearance. One of the miracle ingredients is sulphur which is a natural skin soother and there is no odor to it. I also mix it with organic sugar as an exfoliating scrub for face and body, it makes my skin super smooth, and is refreshed by the mint. I've been using this product for years, it's a staple!

                    Queen Helene's Mint Julep Clay Masque- There's a reason this cheap-o has been around forever! The uber-wealthy go to spa's to have luxurious mud treatments. THIS IS that same type MUD. (Clays, Koalin & Bentonite mined from the earth). As it dries, it simply sucks every last molecule of dead skin cells, grease, grime from my pores. My skin is left smooth as a baby's bottom, every time I use it.

                    I agree w/ other reviewer's precautions- Yes, it can be drying if over-used (too often), and it WILL sting like crazy if you exfoliate 1st- Don't do that! Just use a very gentle wash (or none at all) before applying. Use warm water & your fingers to massage the dried mud off. (If you have any rash, irritation, sunburn, etc, DON'T apply this Mud- It's TOO powerful to put on damaged skin!) On healthy skin, you won't believe how soft, smooth, & clean your face is!

                    Does it "shrink" pores? It CLEANS & TIGHTENS them so they are invisible! I've been using this product since forever (since my teen years, & I now have a teen of my own)- I've never worn a speck of foundation, nor concealer, nor anything more than a swoosh of "old-school" powder on my T-zone... I'm very lucky to (still!) receive frequent compliments on my peaches & cream complexion :)

                    This "Mud" is THE best topical skin tx $$ can buy... And, it's practically free! MIRACLE MUD!

                    I use this 3 times a week after a warm bath while my pores are open.(It works better when your pores are open.) Apply to face and neck and leave on for 10 minutes. Wash off with a wash cloth and tepid water. My skin looks so refreshed and my pores are minimized.
