Cupcake was the very first fresh face mask from Lush that I tried.
There are several different fresh face masks to choose from in Lush, I decided on Cupcake as its ingredients were the best suited to my faces needs at the time. I am often surrounded by stress and my skin pays for it. Even at 25 I still get blemishes all over my face, something I am very self conscious about.
Cupcake face mask is an excellent choice if you are suffering with oily or blemish prone skin, the cocoa powder and rhassoul mud that is in it are both highly absorbent making it an excellent product for drawing out dirt and impurities from your skin.
Mixed in with the cocoa powder and rhassoul mud is fresh mint. Fresh mint is another great ingredient, it’s a herb that is used in thousands of cosmetic products as it is both antiseptic and cooling, it is the perfect ingredient to stimulate, soothe and tone angry skin.
Cupcake balances out my skin perfectly. It draws out all of the impurities while cleansing and soothing my skin all at the same time.
Application is easy, I like to keep mine in the fridge to keep its ingredients fresh. When you’re ready to put it on, take it out of the fridge and apply a generous layer around your face/your problem area. I like to use a teaspoon to apply mine, I prefer using a spoon as it doesn’t get all over your hands and also stops any bacteria from your fingers ending up in the left over product. Using this spoon method every single one of my face masks have lasted well past their sell by date.
Cupcake rinses off really easily, I like to leave it on my face for 15 minutes to about half an hour. Once the time is up I grab a clean flannel and rinse it in hot as I can stand it water. I then slowly wipe the mask off, sweeping it in downwards motions, I like to use hot as I can stand it water as I find this really helps to drag all of the dirt and impurities out of my pores.
There wasn’t much difference to my skin after the first use but after I had Cupcake twice my skin was noticeably in a much better condition. My pores had also shrunk in size which really impressed me.
I get 3 maybe 4 face masks out of one of the small pots from Lush, I therefore think Cupcake is a really cost effective, high end quality face mask. I am really pleased with this product and will certainly be buying it again when my skin decides to have another break out.
