With Lush's Cupcake face mask, you can do just that!
This blog post is not sponsored. All opinions written here are my own and I am not being paid to say any of these.
If you're unfamiliar with Lush's fresh face masks you should probably check these out. These masks are made so fresh that they actually have an expiry date on them so you know when you need to finish the tub by. Whilst some people may find this inconvenient, I find this to be perfect as it encourages me to use the mask at least twice a week rather than leaving it to go to waste.
Just like Catastrophe Cosmetic, Cupcake uses mainly natural ingredients with the only synthetic ingredient being the perfume. The mask contains Rhassoul Mud, Cocoa Powder, Cocoa Butter, Fresh Mint, Peppermint Oil and other lovely ingredients that you'd want on your face!
The cocoa butter moisturises your skin, the rhassoul mud absorbs grease and cleanses and the fresh mint in the mask tones.
For your money you receive a relatively small sized tub but I find that a little goes a long way with these products. Once opened you're met with a creamy, mud like mixture which you get to spread over your face. As these masks are best kept stored in the fridge, it cools and soothes your skin. It's a relatively smooth formula but I found one or two small... chunks in mine? I'm not sure what they were but I didn't like them.
The mask smells really nice, like mint chocolate! I was expecting a more chocolate-like smell so I was pleasantly surprised. I found this mask to be a little grittier than Catastrophe Cosmetic and relatively easy to apply. It takes around ten minutes for it to work on the skin and whilst it does freeze your face a little, it's not as bad as other masks I've tried.
This mask was a little harder to remove than Catastrophe Cosmetic but compared to some other masks I've used it's been a lot easier to remove.
After a disappointing result with Catastrophe Cosmetic, I wasn't too sure what to expect with Cupcake.
I was really surprised!
The mask didn't make my face glow like Catastrophe Cosmetic did, but it did make my skin look cleaner. I have quite oily skin and I noticed that my skin no longer became oily; the mask sucked up any oil! I did leave a week before masks and towards the end of the week my skin became oily as usual but if I did two masks a week my skin rarely became oily.
Cupcake was also amazing for any breakouts. I had a breakout two days before a very important party and applied this face mask. It did make the worst of the spots sting slightly but the next day they had all reduced in size and faded! It also didn't cause any outbreaks on my skin which I was very pleased with.
The mask also made my face quite soft and I personally have found this to be a wonderful remedy to my skin.
❥ I personally find the smell of the mask quite nice and it lingers on your skin for a few hours afterwards.
❥ Easy to apply.
❥ Cleared up any spots I had.
❥ Worked wonders for my oily skin!
❥ Leaves the skin soft.
❥ A little difficult to remove.
❥ If you dislike the smell it will linger on your skin which isn't ideal.
❥ The little chunks in it make me feel physically sick (which is a personal preference).
I rate this face mask:
We all have different skin types so if you are going to try one of Lush's face masks I would recommend you either read reviews or ask the shop staff. Cosmetic Catastrophe, which had fabulous reviews, was a flop for me but Cupcake has done absolute wonders for my skin!
