I picked this up at Sally's and used it last night. It made my face so smooth and soft! It does have an "old lady" smell for sure, which others have mentioned. But nonetheless, a great cheap mask! Mine came in huge tub so I just apply it with an extra foundation brush in order to avoid contamination.

I love this mask! I use it on alternating shower days with the Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask. This one has english clay in it to work as an effective pore cleanser. It is pretty tight on the face when allowed to dry before washing. After use, my pores are noticeably smaller in size. Also, it has an anti-inflammatory effect on any areas of break outs. Pimples are immediately dried out and diminished in size.
Now, this may not be the product for those complaining of sensitive skin. My skin goes through periods of breaking out and needs something sturdy to straighten it out.I do find that this mask acts as a preventative measure for those that have cleared their skin.
I have the Aztec healing clay sitting somewhere in a corner collecting dust since Queen Helene masks. I like that these masks are idiot proof and pre-mixed. Just apply and get on with your day.
Highly recommended. This is my HG product mask with the Mint Julep one. I plan to try the Grape Seed Extract mask as well. Cheap price for the amount of product. Not animal tested. Does contain some harsh chemicals. But I can't get clear skin using soap and water :)
I might opt for the large tub next time. The squeeze tube is great for those that don't like to get their hands as dirty.

This burned so so bad. It smelled like someone dumped roses in it, even though I liked roses it was so overpowering. I couldn't keep it on for more than 5 seconds. Ugh maybe I'll try again another time, but I doubt it'll stop burning.

As I write this review, Let me tell you I have this stuff on my face right now and it's great! When I look in the mirror I can see the oils coming from my pores, which is sort of disgusting, but it's working. The smell is annoying after a while and it can be very messy, but the fact that my skin feels fresh and clean matters the most to me.

This is a great masque that leaves my skin feeling clean and hydrated after I use it. I was really surprised at all the negative reviews - I have never found this mask drying or irritating in any way, but I know skincare is very YMMV. I use this when my skin is feeling a bit lackluster or dry, and it perks it right up while adding a quick shot of hydration. My face definitely feels firmer and more "plumped up" after I use this. Combine this with a moisturizer with hylauronic acid (like Cerave) and my normally combo-troubled skin hasn't had one dry patch in months! Will definitely repurchase.

Not bad stuff-- been around for ages! I went to cosmetology school twenty years ago and we used this stuff back then. I like it better than the mint mask basically due to the scent. I don't mind the rose scent of this product and it does the job. It dries oil big time I would not suggest for people with dry skin. A good basic staple and great for teens with oil reserves that won't quit. Super cheap too!

Love this and even my boyfriend does too! I have a few of the queen helene masks and this is one of my favourites. A great at home mask product and dirt cheap!

For 3.99, I think this product isn't worth the hype. It's really drying and gets every where! I should have purchased the peel-off cucumber mask next to it.

The price is great and it's not an atrocious product, but to me it's pretty drying and doesn't make any skin difference.

So, I have not used the Mint Julep masque for over 10 years because I knew the mint oils were irritating to my skin, but I was looking for a cheap no-frills kaolin mask for my nose, which tends to clogged pores, and when I found this at Sally I gave it a try.
To be clear, this is definitely NOT a "gentler" version of the Mint Julep masque. The main ingredients are exactly the same; the only difference is the fragrance and color. But because the highly irritating mint oil is not in it, it might be slightly *less irritating* for some people, including me. I can't use kaolin on the rest of my face because it's simply too drying, this mask included.
But it does a fine job on my nose. One thing I noticed when a large flake dried and fell off was that it had a comedone stuck to it, just like those peel of masks and blackhead strips do. I suspect people don't know clay masks can do this because generally we rinse them off as opposed to peeling them off and inspecting them.
I kind of like the smell, and the consistency is good. I got the big tub, which is frankly a pain in the @ss, but it's still a good clay mask that does what it should for little money.
