I bought this product purely based on the rating and reviews on MUA. I had actually never even noticed it at the drug stores until I went looking for it. Another big reason was the mint part. Your girl here loves anything and everything mint. Mint chocolates, mint ice creams, mint chutney, mint foot spray, mint chewing gum and much much more.

The product smells great ! I almost wanna eat it if I can manage to get the stuff outta the tube. I think its packed under high pressure and you'll need just as much pressure to get the product out. Its a thick thick paste. Because its so thick, applying the product is also a bit time taking. It cleaned my face thoroughly but it left me super dry. I think it helped clear a few tiny breakouts I had on my neck. Given how dry I felt I am guessing this would be better choice for girls with oily skin than for my normal - dry skin. Have you tried the Queen Helene Mint Julep Mask ? Did it work any better on you ?

Lets Talk Ice Cream !
What is your favorite ice cream flavor ? High five if its mint chocolate chip ! The best mint chocolate chip ice cream is made by Braum's, just in case you wanted to know my favorite.

Tried it for the first time last Friday at a friend's place and couldn't wait till the stores opened on Saturday go get my own tube! Love it's tightening effect. You are right - most likely better for those with oily skin.

I used to use this mask in my high school days.... Of late I have been paying attention to the ingredients of my skin care and makeup. So Queen Helene has been crossed off my list. :-(

Ice cream: depends on my mood..... sometimes it is mint chocolate chip and sometimes it is anything with peanut butter cups in it. :-)

I do love mint chocolate chip ice cream. However, my favorite is Blue Bell's chocolate chip. I like to to make milkshakes with it. Yum!

This mask is super super thick, I resorted to putting a few drops of distilled water into the tube and mashing it around to loosen it up a bit. So cheap and very good for oily skinned girls - so this goes on the T zone, and something else on the rest of my face. Or... if I have the time, use the Mint Julep first, then put on a moisturising mask afterwards.

Hazelnut gelato has got to be it for me.

I love this product. I only use it a couple times a month because it does leave my skin a little dry. I have breakouts occasionally and this seems to help me. The price is right too.

Same here, I never noticed it at the store until I read a review a few months back. It really lasts a long time! The results are pretty good and it makes my skin so soft!

Ice Cream: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Strawberry Cheesecake, Pistachio, Coffee Mocha Fudge...

I've tried this after reading reviews on MUA also! I used to love the Olay daily facials clay mask but it was discontinued so I came across this while searching for a new mask. Well, I didn't like it all that much either. It was too thick and drying and I have very oily skin.
My next search led me to Clinique's deep cleansing emergency mask (oh such long names!) Anyhow I love this mask, it spreads very thinly and works great! My skin is left smooth and soft. Only issue is it's about $18 a tube which is kind of pricey for a mask but until I find something else just as good, this is it for me.

Oh missed the ice cream part! I LOVEEE mint choc chip ice cream. *high-five* It's my absolute favorite flavor. It's funny how most desis do not like that flavor. And Baskin Robbins MCC is the BEST!

Hey Pharm chick !
For me cookie dough was the tricky one. Some people make it a bit too salty ...
