I discovered the Queen Helene line of products about two years ago when someone I followed on instagram shared a photo of themselves wear the masque and the resulting commenters raved about how much they loved the line and how affordable it was. Effective and affordable? Yes.
I've used other exfoliating scrubs in the past but for the last two years Queen Helen's Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub has been my go-to. My mandatory. I love it and largely attribute it to why my skin has been virtually blemish and zit free for the past two years. I use it almost daily, in the evenings, and just a little nickel size goes a long way; one tube lasts me maybe 4-5 months. I slightly dampen my skin and apply it in a circular motion. I work it in for 30 seconds before rinsing off and my skin feels clean...even if I've been outside all day. I sometimes worry what if it's discontinued and then plot how I would stock pile as many tubes as I could so I'd never have to go without it. I buy it at Sally's but perhaps it's available other places too? Bonus? It's like, $6. So good.
+MANDATORY is a new on-going series where I share products/items that I absolutely love and would rather not have to go without.
