Another LUSH review! I think I am getting addicted to LUSH products 😉 I have combination oily skin with frequent breakouts. So I wanted to try a nice LUSH fresh face mask which will help soothe my skin and reduce breakouts. I had cosmetic warrior on mind, but fortunately it was out of stock and so the SA suggested this cup cake mask! I had doubts about whether this will work on my skin or not. But just one sniff of the product was required for me to grab this. It smells of divine chocolate cake with a hint of peppermint (how tempting?)!
What LUSH says about the mask? Chocolate heaven for oily and teenage skin. Its action removes excess oil and calms breakouts. Rhassoul mud cleans and soothes, linseed, cocoa butter and cocoa powder soften the skin. Balancing peppermint, spearmint and sandalwood oils complete this effective and delicious experience. Apply to clean skin, avoiding the eye area. Leave for five to ten minutes, then rinse away with warm water. Keep chilled.
Price: Rs.480 for 100 gms.
My take on the product: It comes in a usual LUSH black tub. Since these are fresh masks, the shelf life is very less – one month and refrigeration is mandatory. The mask is pretty thick and I felt it would be difficult to spread it on face. So I took a dollop of the mask, added 4 to 5 drops of water, mixed it well and applied on face. It works well for me this way. The smell is to die for! I had to control myself from tasting it! On application, it takes about 15 to 20 minutes to dry and during this time, I could feel a mild cooling sensation, unlike the harsh burning sensation we get while using masks like Himalaya neem face pack ( I ve mentioned this just to compare the sensation). The mask tightens my face upon drying (this is due to the mud present in the mask). The mask has some coarse granules which also helps exfoliate while washing. My face feels fresh and clean on washing it off. I even noticed a reduction in my pore size, but it was temporary! I had a bunch of pimples on my left cheek when I used this mask. And to my surprise, the next day morning, all of them were reduced, that too with just one application. I just love the way this mask treats my skin. And the smell only adds up to the pleasure of using this mask.
