LUSH Cupcake Fresh Face Mask Review

I love Lush cosmetics, but there isn't a store close by to me so that I can indulge on a regular basis. However, when I was in the area of one, I picked up one of their fresh face masks. I had never tried them before and I really wanted to pamper my skin.
Side note, sorry I haven't been posting as much lately, it has been a crazy week. I had a birthday! And lots of other things have been going on, but I do have a lot of great products waiting in the wings!
This is the Lush Cupcake Fresh Face Mask. It retails for $6.99 and you need to keep it in the fridge. They last about 3 weeks (the expiration date is on the back) and you get about 6/7 masks out of it. The cupcake mask is for oily skin, which is perfect for me!

This has cocoa powder to calm skin and soften it. Spearmint gives a wonderful tingle and acts as a mild astringent and it also has sandalwood. They are the freshest things in the store and are really great for your skin.

Take a nice sized glob of the mask and spread it on your face. Leave on for ten minutes and rinse with warm water. Pretty simple, just like any other mask. I like that since it has just been in the fridge, it is really cooling. Cupcake smells LOVELY and looks like brownie batter (it also has that consistency, so it feels like you are rubbing batter onto your face). It does a great job of calming down acne flare ups, softening, and taking away excess oil

Overall, I am really happy with this mask. It isn't cheap, but doesn't break the bank for a special treat for your face. You get a lot of uses out of it, it smells amazing, and actually improved my skin. Even if you do not have oily skin, this is a good mask for cooling down in the summer and calming redness.
Price: 8/10
Performance: 10/10

  1. COOL! It looks like cake batter! I love their masks too! I want to try this now!

    1. This is a good one!! There are about a dozen or so that I want to try now!!

  2. Happy B-day!!! :) I have also an oily skin, so I'll try it :) My recommendation is...Mask od Mangnaminty! It's such a great thing for an oily skin ;) I have good experiences with the warrior, but it has simply horrible smell :/

    1. Thanks Ann, yeah this will be great for your skin!! Mask of Mangnaminity! I saw that, I will have to try it. Yeah, some of the smells are weird right?

    2. Yeah... and the smell of Mask of Magnaminty is weird too :D
