Mint Julep Masque
I read about Queen Helene's Mint Julep mask on the Sali Hughes forum.* It had rave reviews and it's cheap. Praise the lord, I have found something that works miracles and is cheap. I thought a lifetime of Chanel skincare was inevitable. It costs just £5.79 on Amazon for a big tube.
Does it work? It says it will shrink your pores and it is designed for problem skin. I don't have problem skin but I do have some blackheads on my nose - the glamour. Anyway, I layered it on yesterday expecting it to sting or be uncomfortable but no, it just felt pleasantly cool. It hardens in a very old school way and I then expected it to be a nightmare to rinse off but no, however I do recommend a muslin cloth to help. Then I looked in the mirror and lo and behold, my skin looked all smooth and airbrushed. I am not kidding. The effect of course doesn't last but it never does, right?
I am blown away by this, it would be perfect to take on holiday when your skin gets gunked up with sun block. At such a reasonable price, this is something I really think everyone should try.
