Queen Helene Mud Pack Masque



Because of it's popularity, I always wanted to try Queen Helene's Mint Julep Masque but it's always out of stock or I'm not just fast enough to go to the store and grab one and was left with Mud Pack Masque instead which is actually not bad.

According to www.queenhelene.com"

"Mud Pack Masque is the original old-fashioned, time-tested earth facial treatment with imported natural English Clay that works wonders for your skin. It's not only an effective pore cleanser, but also helps tighten loose, sagging skin on your face and neck and relaxes tired facial muscles to soften lines and wrinkles. Our Mud Pack Masque facial helps you look your best when you're preparing to go out for an evening or helps you relax before going to bed. No matter when you use it, your complexion will have a clearer, smoother, more youthful looking appearance."

Really not bad, right?


Since it's a mud masque, it's so thick sometimes I wish that this is just in a tub instead.  I have to exert too much effort in squeezing the tube and have to rub it in between my hands first (to soften it) before applying it to my skin.  Before, I use foundation brush to evenly apply it, now I just work it in my hands and randomly slather on my face though I saw a youtube video showing how to properly apply a mud mask but who has time for that? hehehe.

This mud mask is quite effective:  I feel that my pores are squeaky clean every after use and it helps in drying out my pimples faster (I also use this around my upper back whenever I feel that there's a lot of "back-acne" going on and in some parts of my body that needs a little deep cleansing action) and when it dries it's as if it's lifting my face and pulling and tightening my pores.  The only downside for me is that it dries my skin so I make sure to moisturize! moisturize! moisturize! I even use face mask and/or sleeping mask/pack after.

Overall it's a really good mud masque for me.

Have you tried the Mint Julep one?  How was it?

  2. Mud masques are really great for any type of skin, although I don't use them in cold wintertime as the skin rather needs nourishing , I prefer honey masques ^^
