Lush Cosmetics Cupcake Face Mask Review


As you're all probably aware I did a HUGE Lush haul the other day after not shopping there for over a year. I think I just went off it because of the prices, but after revisiting i've realised that the products are really good. I've become slightly obsessed with skin care over the last few weeks and you'll be seeing all the products that i've been using recently. I have noticed a huge change in my complexion after changing my skin routine and using new products so I can't wait to enlighten you all! Something which i've used before is the cupcake face mask and I know a lot of bloggers have reviewed it but similarly lots of people have never heard of it, so I thought why not start the weekend with a light hearted yummy post. Not that I look so yummy on that photograph! I think reviews on face masks are very helpful, because it is difficult to find a 'good face pack' without trying loads first, and I have tried thousands so hopefully soon you will be able to find your favourite face mask too.

I'm sure Lush do a lot better face masks than this depending on what you want from a face pack - they're usually very good at doing products designed for certain skin types etc. but the only reason I chose this is because it smells delicious and has cupcake/chocolate in it. What's not to love? But also, I know that all of their products are great so why not try them all! Of course I just wanted to see what effects it had as well so I thought why not test it out as a reviewer, not just a customer. However, £5.95 is pretty extortionate when you think how small the tub is, but then again I reckon if you're careful you will get about 3 small applications which isn't that great. But, then again that works out at £2.00 for an application so it depends how you want to look at it. There are pros and cons.
Lush say that it has 'linseed infusion to nourish and soften...fresh mint for toning cocoa butter to moisturise and rhassoul mud to absorb grease and give a deep cleanse' so this is actually perfect for me, as it is a bit like a facial in a jar, it aims to get rid of grease and cleanse, therefore eliminating spots.
I like the toning element of it, i've never really thought about toning my face before.


The texture is very thick and it does actually dry on your face which is good, as then you can feel it tighten and do it's job, which must be the toning element of it. It's meant to be stored in the fridge, then it apparently works better. It is rammed with 'good' ingredients and from the first splash of water on my face I did feel and see a difference, my skin felt fresh like it has been deeply cleansed, my skin was noticeably radiant and smooth. I usually use GLAMGLOW you can read my review here if you've missed that and Glamglow is difficult to beat, but has helped me to see what the cupcake mask is missing. It's missing the tingling sensation of GlamGlow. Okay, so GlamGlow is a lot more expensive but you can see why when you analyse the ingredients, they pretty much come from all over the world (read my review you'll be amazed at how good this mask is). Glamglow also have a new version out with proceeds going towards the pink ribbon foundation for Breast Cancer. So if you want to treat yourself AND give to charity, you can have a look at that here.

VERDICT: I do love this cupcake mask though and I will continue to use it, however, if you really want benefits that will last, I think GlamGlow is for you, but this is perfect if you just need a quick pick me up. I can imagine it is great to use before make up application for a flawless base.

  2. I just bought a mask today and got a free sample to try of another one, from lush. It's my first purchase from Lush and so far so good, I really like the consistency of them and they tingle on the skin so it feels like they're working.

  18. I saw this when I was in Lush the other weekend, and was so tempted by it, even though my boyfriend was rather amused by the fact that you'd put something like that on your face, bless him haha! The only thing that stopped me though was the price! However, with my first pay check with my new job I think I just might treat myself to this, oh I am living the high life ;) haha.
    Oh and you've also gained yourself a new follower :D Your blog is ever so lovely.

    Love Becky xx
