Queen Helene is a line of hair care and skin care products found in many drugstores and beauty product retailers. One of the signature elements in all Queen Helene beauty products seems to be the inclusion of natural ingredients like avocado and grapefruit. While Queen Helene’s primary focus seems to be on hair care, they do several skin care offerings as well. Most of these can be found in their “Facial Masks and Scrubs” category.
It’s worth pointing out that, while Queen Helene offers several products with anti-aging ingredients in the formula, none of them seem to be specifically categorized as “anti-aging” products. For example, the “Avocado and Grapefruit Facial Masque” promises to restore a “healthy glow” to users cheeks. It also seems as if all of the Queen Helene Facial Masques are paraben free.
One thing we can say about the Queen Helene Facial Masques is that they all sound delicious. In fact, we don’t know weather to put them on or eat them. Products in the Queen Helene Face Masque range include: Mint Julep Masque, Mud Pack Masque, Grape Seed Peel Off Masque and the Olive Oil Masque. Queen Helene also produces a line of facial scrubs with the same ingredients. The Queen Helene Mud Pack Masque is said to feature “Natural English Clay”, and seems to be the closest thing the line has to a wrinkle-fighting product. In addition to the face masques, Queen Helene also offers foot therapy, organic body lotions, hair care and muscle relieving bath “tonics.”

The Bottom Line
Queen Helene looks to be a fairly typical brand of drugstore skin and beauty care products. Unfortunately for our readers, this probably isn’t the best way to treat your wrinkles. If you’re concerned about issues like blackheads or dry skin, Queen Helene masques could be the way to go. But for wrinkles, we would prefer a a more targeted formula. The best wrinkle fighters actively promote collagen growth in the user’s skin, and we saw no Queen Helene products that accomplish this important goal. As we age, the skin’s collagen production slows, which is what can lead to old, “dry” looking skin and wrinkles. Finding a product that boosts collagen is key to recapturing a youthful, “full” complexion.
