Earlier last week I raved Queen Helene Cocoa Butter Natural Facial Scrub so folks started asking me if I tried Queen Helene Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub…but of course! Outside of the Cocoa Butter one the Mint Julep is a fav as well (although I find the Cocoa Butter one a touch more hydrating).
If your flaky skin needs exfoliating but you don’t want to drop an expensive dime on one, well, grab this little guy up for as little as four dollars and get happy, glowing, soft skin for less!
This has a herbally mint scent that’s very refreshing and pleasant. The texture quite resembles the Cocoa Butter in texture but seems to have a grainier texture (they are actually ground walnut shells). It contains Natural Cocoa Butter as well and from what I can see, other than the scent, it’s almost identical to the Cocoa Butter Scrub in ingredients and texture.
I still seem to like the Cocoa Butter formula better for some reason. I find it more hydrating this could be because the texture of the scrubbing grains are more refined and smaller in the Cocoa Butter formula versus the Mint.
Either way, both work GREAT!
To use, simply wet your face, squeeze a small amount into your hands, and massage gently onto your face. Oily skin can use it a few times a week but drier might want to stick to once or twice a week.
It gently scrubs away flakes and dead skin cells reveal smoother, softer skin and adding a nice glow to my face. The mint isn’t irritating on my face in the least but rather has a cool, refreshing feel.
It’s so difficult to find cheaper exfoliators that work and don’t dry out skin further or strip them but I’ve had great success with Queen Helene scrubs!
Brilliant budget pick!
