GREAT acne product: queen helene mint julep masque

This product is AWESOME. My mom actually used it when she was younger and recommended it to me a few years ago. It comes in a tub like this one but it's also available in a tube if that suits you better. I picked mine up at Sally's Beauty Supply for around 4 dollars but it's also available at Walgreens and maybe some other drugstores.

I've tried LOTS of spot treatments to cure that big pimple overnight- benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, toothpaste, ice, lemon juice...

Of course, nothing will make it look like there was never a problem, but this Mint Julep Masque is the best thing I have found for clearing up a pimple quickly because it has sulfur in it. It says it "helps dry up acne pimples" and this is 100% correct. I'm not so sure, however, about the rinsing away blackheads and shrinking large pores.

This product can be used as a spot treatment overnight or can be put all over the face and neck for 15 minutes as a mask. It's green!, and smells like spearmint. It says it "it firms and hardens as its suction action draws out waste matter from the pores." Kinda gross, but also really good at getting the job done!

I would definitely recommend this stuff if you haven't found a spot treatment that works for you, or if you want a face mask that helps with oily skin.

So, what do you think? Have you tried Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque?
