Friday Find

Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque (Walgreens)

Many of you asked about the face mask that actually shrinks pores that I mentioned in this post.  I've tried many face masks, and this one by far does the best job of making my skin feel like it has a clean slate.  This works best with normal to oily skin - and truly does remove impurities, clean out pores, and leaves you with clean, smooth and tight skin.  The only drawbacks are the funky green color and it doesn't smell the best - but for under $5 the benefits are completely worth it.  Not to mention I'm usually left alone when I'm wearing this (boyfriend and dog aren't a fan of the green faced monster) - so this also works if you just need some you time :)

Thanks for passing along the info!

I've heard a lot of good things about this, but have never tried it because I can't find it anywhere! Maybe I'll have to order it online

I've never heard of this mask–I'm going to have to try it out! I use one by Kate Somerville. It's on the pricier side, but it lasts forever since I don't use it that often!

Thanks for this great info! I am always looking for new ways to shrink my pores. Is it terribly drying?
Thanks

I LOVE this stuff! I haven't used it in a while, and I like to try new things so I actually have two others I'm trying to use up right now. I love this one thought because it is super affordable and does work! Joe hates when I walk out with a white face. He tells me I need to warn him when the ghost is coming out ;)

I love face masks and I haven't done any in such a long time. I was addicted to the fresh face masks from LUSH and now that the only one is at the MOA, I don't get those anymore. This one might be a good alternative!

Aaliyah said...

This is one of my favorite masks too! You just can't beat the quality for this price!

I use Origins face mask and it too works like a charm. It's not $5 but it works really well and I like the fact that it's natural. Sounds like a good product.

Awesome, I'll have to check this out! I've been looking for a good mask lately but so many of them are so expensive that I wasn't willing to spend the money just to try. Gotta love a bargain-priced product that works!

I haven't seen this around. I will have to check it out! Thanks for letting me know.

This mask has been on my to-buy list for the longest time! Maybe it's about time I actually buy it?

Joules said...

I probably should try this--more pores are pretty huge on my nose.

YES! I've used that too!! it tingles too, right? Yeah, I kind of feel like the wicked witch of the west when I have the mask on, but there's something kind of fun that color. Thanks for reminding me of this, i should get it again!

I've used this for so long! It's one of my favorites. I also like "Deep down Detox" they have a clay/mud mask made with bergamot that smells like HEAVEN and makes your skin so, so smooth!
