REVIEW: Queen Helene The Orignal Mint Julep Masque

Hey ladies! I have another review for you guys today, it's the Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque. 
First of all I have never heard of this EVER! Until my husband picked this up at Walgreens about a month and a half ago for $5.99. So I decided to look it up on blogs and Youtube and I found that everyone was raving about this product so I was super happy to try it out. 

First Impression:
It comes in an 8oz. bottle (I'm not sure if it comes in any other sizes) It has a screw on cap and it standsup up with the opening on the bottom. The opening is pretty big as well so you can get a lot of product out. The masque smelt A-MAZING! It's a minty smell but it's not over powering. The texture of it was smooth, it wasn't lumpy or bumpy and the color of it is light green.

What it claims:

The directions/ ingredients:

My skin type, I consider to be is combanation/ oily. I don't have a lot of acne  (but I do when it's that time of the month >:( ) I have a LOT of black heads on my nose and I have large pores where most people tend to get them, your upper cheeks right under your eyes. 

So I applied it as directed (evenly) through out my face. I noticed that it dried up really fast and leaving your skin feeling fresh and tight. I decided to leave it on for 15 minutes first to see how it worked  and once I washed it off my skin already seemed refreshed and healthy. I noticed that it does shrink your pores instantly but as far as acne and black heads it would take time. 
The next day, I decided to leave it on over night to see how that would work. Once and again I applied it as directed. After about a half hour the smell of mint went away and a almost burnt rubber smell started to appear! It is not soooo noticeable that you wanted to take it off (plus your going to be sleeping right? lol ) but it was a complete change from the mint. The next morning I woke up and I noticed a pimple I had on the side of my cheek increasing in redness and size and throughout the week I noticed my black-heads disappearing! 

Pros: It does what it says! Smells great if you love minty smells, leaves skin feeling refreshed and soft.
Cons: The only thing I can think of is it clogs up in the tube so you have to smash it around in the tube before applying sometimes, it smells like burnt rubber and that it can sting your open skin; such as scratches.

Overall I love this product and yes I will buy it again! It comes with a lot of product so I probably won't have to be buying more anytime soon though. 
Have any of you tried this? Do you ladies like it? 

Thanks for reading! 

XOXO Shayla
