Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque | New Found Love

28 May

The face masks I’ve been using are finished so I was on a hunt for a new one. I get masks from BDJ Box but I am not a fan of those masks in a sachet, where you stick the wet tissue/cloth type on your face.

I was watching a youtube video of ShebbyChic one night and I saw her use Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque as an overnight acne spot treatment for her face. When we were out one weekend, I dropped by Healthy Options in SM North Edsa and was looking for the tube with the old packaging. The SA told me Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque changed their packaging, but the amount is still basically the same. I got this for Php 395 for 8 oz of product! Steal!

REVIEW: Krave’s Triple P Fruit Masque

6 Mar

Since the 10% off discount from Krave is still ongoing, I grabbed the chance to try out the other mask they have. I have done a review on the Detox and White Mud mask  which you can check out here.


Triple P stands for Papaya, (Green) Papaya, and Pineapple.

Product Description:



Ripe Papaya is rich in vitamin C and enzymes that take away dead skin cells while the pineapple softens the skin and fights free radical damage!

Our unique formulation includes Green papaya that effectively exfoliates & lightens the skin as much as the ripe papaya does. Combining these 3 Ps with the spot & blemish control ability of WITCH HAZEL, they work synergistically to give you one of the best face masque your skin will truly crave for. 


1. WITCH HAZEL contains tannins that help to tighten skin proteins which then form a protecting covering to help promote skin healing & deeply moisturizing.

2. PAPAYA exfoliates the skin revealing a healthier, whiter & glowing skin. Rich in antioxidants such as vitamin A.

3. GREEN PAPYA help reduce freckles & blemishes due to exposure to sunlight.

4. PINEAPPLE contains enzymes that make skin elastic, improve skin hydration, diminish age spots and remove damaged and dead cells.

Wash your face with CUPINE ALOEPA facial wash. Apply evenly on face avoiding the eye area. Leave for at least 15 minutes or until dry. Wash with water. Tone & apply moisturizer, for best results use FRUITTIE PORELESS toner & MOISTURE SOUFFLE night crème.
Use 1-2x a week.

As you can see in the picture, the tub is filled with a clear gel type mask. It is somewhat like the Cupine AloePa facial wash which has a gel like consistency. I think this is a newbie in masks since the face masks I know are on the creamy muddy side. Since summer is approaching, I am switching to gel-type products. Gel type products are easily absorbed and as not as heavy as the cream type ones.


I am using this once a week as I kept the mud mask for awhile.

After washing my face, I apply the mask with clean fingers. I just get a product using my index finger and it is already enough for my whole face. I let it dry while I get busy with mommy stuff, that is roughly 30minutes. It gives a cooling tingling effect, but far from the tightening effect the mud mask gives. This means that the product is taking effect. This does not sting as much as the mud mask but I can feel its effect too.I rinse it after and follow with my toner, moisturizer, sunscreen and eye cream.


Here’s a summary of my likes and dislikes:

(+) USDA certified organic without parabens

(+) feels light on the skin

(+) easily absorbed by the skin

(+) works instantly!

(+) imporoves skin elasticity

(+) gives hydration

(+) lessens oil and prevents oil build up

(+) sloughs off dead skin cells

(+) has anti-aging properties!

(+) tightens pores and brightens my skin giving it a healthy glow

(+) available in a new improved formulation which comes in a bigger size!!! YAY!

(-) double dipping because of the tub [the new triple p mask comes in a better packaging!]

Krave Detox&White Mineral Mud Masque

What’s great with Krave is that their products are all sealed. You will know that the products are kept fresh and at its best.


The 50g tub is for 315php. Quite pricey but with the benefits it claims, I think it is fair enough.

The product looks like mud with the brown, moss-green color and all. I can smell the fruity-minty-organic scent the moment I opened it. I am not a fan of its smell though. I was kind of panicky when I saw what’s inside. There was water and I though the product has expired or something so I texted Krave’s number. (I am a registered distributor. You can check it out here.) They told me that this is normal and that I have to mix this first before using it. I did what they said and immediately tried it out.

I scooped a dollop of it and felt the tiny granules and thick consistency. I applied it all over my face, avoiding the eye area and it dried up almost in an instant. I used this after hitting the shower.

I felt a tingling sensation after applying it. But no worries, it just means that the product is working. I felt it sinking into my pores and tightening them at that moment. I let it stay on my face for 30mins. (The direction said 15mins or until dry.) I just liked how it felt – like my sebaceous glands are locking up and there will be no sebum secretion. I also felt my pimples dried up with this. I also liked how it exfoliates my face, getting rid of dirt and grime that toners can’t remove. I also felt that there was an instant skin lift which can be an advanced anti-aging plus!

I washed it up with water and it rinsed out well. I didn’t have to tub or tug my face to remove it. The direction said that you use this first then wash up with Cupine Aloepa. But I did it the other way around and it worked for me. My face has never felt this smooth and pore-free!  Instant glowing fairness is the only end result of this!

I plan to use this twice a week starting next week. I added it this week to road test if it complements the rest of Krave’s skin feeding routine and it did!

Here’s a summary of my likes and dislikes:

(+) USDA certified organic without parabens

(+) feels thick but is easily absorbed by the skin

(+) works instantly!

(+) imporoves skin elasticity and hydration

(+) diminishes oil and sloughs off dead skin cells

(+) advanced anti-aging!

(+) tightens pores and brightens my skin giving it a healthy glow

(-) Only available in 1 size, 50g.  Wish there was a bigger version for this.

(-) Quite pricey for 315php.

Oh, Krave is having a sale the whole month of November! Don’t miss it!
