Ever since I was a kid my mom would sometimes come around the corner with a face that was bright green and smelled of mint. She actually used to jump out and scare me with her face mask on. But when I got older and I started using Queen Helene’s Mint Julep Mask I never went back. I love it so much and here is why:
1. It’s relaxing. If there is something more relaxing than sipping a fizzy drink through a straw while your face is covered in minty stuff, I’m not sure I know what it is. Sure, I’ve written about long hot baths and how much reading is relaxing, but if you don’t have time for those things then there is nothing like the quick pick me up of a mint julep mask.
2. It’s affordable. You can get these masks for really cheap. Like really cheap. Like four bucks for a big tube of it at Ulta and it’s also available at places like Walgreens and Wal-Mart. Plus, it lasts for a long time. I usually do a mask about once or twice a week. And I usually have a tube of mint julep for about ten months…so yeah. When you think that for four bucks you can get a beauty product that will last you for nearly a year? Worth it!
3. It works. Not only is it affordable and relaxing, but this face mask really does work. Every time I use it, my face is softer and dirt in my pores, if it hasn’t been rinsed away, is much closer to the surface and will be gone by the next treatment. If I remember to use this at least once a week, then my skin looks dynamite!
4. It’s a classic. You have to love a beauty product with nostalgic appeal. My mom not only used it when I was a kid, but she used it decades before that. Most of my friends who use this product started using it because their mothers did. It rocks so much that it has withstood decades!
