Lush Cupcake Fresh Face Mask

Lush Fresh Face Mask CupcakeLush Cupcake Fresh Face Mask
I picked up the deeply cleansing Lush Cupcake Fresh Face Mask when I popped in to a store a few weeks ago; I chose this one because I’d been suffering from a few breakouts recently and hoped it would help to clear my skin up. It costs £5.95 for 75g and as with all Lush Fresh Face Masks you need to store it in your fridge as it contains no preservatives.

Whenever I’m suffering from breakouts or oiliness I go for a clay-based mask and this one contains Rhassoul mud, a natural mineral clay, to help absorb excess oil and calm breakouts. Exactly what I need! It also has linseed to nourish and soften, fresh mint to tone and cocoa butter to moisturise. It has a wicked minty-chocolate scent but, while it might be tempting to lick it, it’s not edible so don’t do it!

To use it I applied a reasonably thick layer to my skin, waited until it dried, then removed with clean warm water and a facecloth. Immediately my skin looked less oily and felt softer. I used the mask every day for five days (I got five uses from one pot) and each day my skin looked a little better than the day before. I’ve also started using La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo to help combat the imperfections and my skin is now almost back to its normal clear self. N finds it hilarious when I have this mask on my face and tries to swipe at it!

One thing I didn’t like about the mask is that there were pretty big chunks of cocoa butter in it. I didn’t really understand why there were such big chunks and what purpose they would serve. Maybe this was a one-off dodgy batch?! Otherwise though I really liked this mask and it has really helped. The price is really, really reasonable too, £1.19 per use!

Do you use Lush masks? Which one is your favourite?

  4. I've never tried a lush face mask before, mostly because I probably wouldn't get to finish it before it goes off, but I'm tempted to give this one a try. My skin has been super annoying recently and this sounds like it might help!
