It's an ok product, but not my HG and I don't like the paraben in this. If you like Queen Helene's Mint Julep Masque, you will love Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay it's better and lasts longer. I purchased the Mint Julep Masque from iherb dot com ($3.84). They ship worldwide. I have a coupon code for this site if you want order the first time: VIK284 and you have 5$ off.

this mask is great but definitely one of the stronger masks out there. if i use this often my skin looks great, a huge pain to do but does what i need. great for oily skin, acne, penetrating and cleaning pores, and helps make the skin tone more uniform. i've noticed the longer i leave it on the better, but it's a pain and even if you don't leave it on an extra 10 minutes after it's dried the results are still very good. i also like that the ingredients are natural.

I bought the larger tub of this at Sally Beauty when I was in college after reading all of the hype about it online. From what I read, this was basically one of those cult-classic beauty staples, and I was dying to try it.

I feel like I was overall underwhelmed by the scent- upon applying, it's a very harsh mint smell so strong that my eyes watered. And as it is a sulfur mask, it had that dreaded rotten egg smell afterwords that no amount of facial cream can mask. It was kind of thick, thicker than what I prefer from a mask, and this caused it to be a bit uneven in application. And I definitely found it to be pretty drying if I use it more than about once a week, so I have limited it to one use per week.

However as an overnight spot treatment I've found it to be a must. Just dab some on to the breakout, go to sleep (once it's dried a bit, of course) and you'll wake up with noticeably improved skin- the acne is less red, visibly smaller, and in more than one instance my breakout was completely gone after the second night sleeping in a spot treatment.

Since I bought such a big tub, I'm going to finish it out, however when I do run out I really don't foresee myself ever buying it again. I might get a small tube for spot treating, but overall this just wasn't a favorite for me. I wanted to love it, and I did at first, but it just didn't stand the test of time.

This mask came with so much hype that I just had to buy it. It is super cheap and came in a giant squeeze tube. It's going to last me for a while! I am not a huge fan of it because it burns on application, and sometimes leaves my face red for a while after. I have almost removed it immediately after applying it several times. I often exfoliate before putting on a mask but I can't with this one, it is too irritating. It doesn't say it contains a mint extract but there could be literally anything in the "fragrance", and I suspect one of those things is some kind of mint extract. My skin gets mildly irritated by toothpaste so I do worry that the mint will be more irritating, and I might not have bought it if that had been disclosed. The idea of a sulfur mask is interesting, it is supposed to be good for acne, but it can also be very drying. I do find this mask to be very drying and I don't find myself reaching for it when I am going to do a mask. I'll use up the tube but I'm not going to go out of my way to get another one.

You just can't beat this mask for the money. Can't do it. It is incredibly thick and it can be a bit of a pain trying to get it out but I can't even really complain about that. I squeeze some onto the back of my hand and use a stiff makeup brush to apply to face. Dries quickly and a miracle for my super oily summer skin. My teenage daughter uses it on pimples overnight.

So famous! I bought this in a Sally's UK and use it weekly. Super ingredients list, minty smell. I use a fairly thick layer and leave it on for 20 mins to give it time to set. I have oily sensitive skin and this turns it red for a good few hours after removal and stings slightly on application. However, it does a great job of removing oil and shrinking pores for the rest of the day. It's the only thing that takes away the perma-sheen on my face for the day. If l don't apply hydrating creams afterwards l break out, probably because it is so drying. There is a slightly sulphuric smell that isn't great. I remove with a muslin cloth, much faster that way. It removes thoroughly - my toner cotton pad is always completely clean with no green residue. It has never removed blackheads or acne for me. Any oily patches on your skin show up darker when the mask is dry. If your skin isn't sensitive it is worth a try.

This is a popular mask so I decided to try it out. It smells great and minty and is a great price but I would say this is more for those with normal skin who break out once in a great while. If you're acne prone and oily skinned it doesn't really do anything but make your face smell like mint. I also noticed that after I used it it would break me out really really bad. Every time! I understand that a mask is supposed to clean your pores but it is not supposed to break you out. I had to give this away.

For acne prone users, try ***Aztec Healing Clay*** which truly clears your pores and leaves your skin nice and smooth.

Oldie, but a goodie. I love the queen helene line in general, but this is a holy grail skin care essential. Under $5, gentle and effective! It draws out impurites without over-drying or disrupting the skins natural balance. It calms my skin and leaves it clean.

I wanted to try this for so long since I love mask of magnaminty and heard lots of comparisons, so I was super excited to get this for xmas. I feel disappointed so far. My skin was pretty clear, I was hoping it would just pull out some tiny black heads and tighten pores but a couple hours after using this I had 8 pimples :( and I hated the sulfur smell that stuck to my skin for over a day, I was expecting a mintier scent. It is in new packaging (a tub) that seems less hygienic than the old squeeze tube and the formula is slightly changed. Why mess with a good thing? I'd love to have the original to compare. Hoping my skin is just purging? Will give it a few more chances and update my review if things change.

UPDATE; This made my skin purge but now I do see it draw out dirt and oil from my pores. I find this mask to be very drying, even on my oily skin and I don't leave it on more than 5 mins. Still not crazy over the after smell.

Feels cooling when you put it on but it leaves the your very tight and dry after washing it off. Would not recommend.
