|Lush Cupcake Mask (pic taken with flash) - color is a little lighter and more grey in real life|
- Sleepover staple: Cupcake is definitely a fixture at slumber parties for it’s wonderful effect on teenage skin.
- It looks good enough to eat: But no, it doesn’t taste like chocolate pudding. Trust us.
- Refreshing minty tingle: We combine spearmint, fresh mint and peppermint oils in Cupcake.
The mask is good for up 3 weeks (expiration date on package) and I was able to use it 6 times before it expired. There was still some left over but this isn't the type of mask you could use everyday and I didn't want to overdo it.
It's thick. My fridge is also set on a somewhat higher temperature so it sort of freezes things a little bit. The first few times it was hard to spread all over my face but I learned to let it sit out so that it is easier to apply. It does smell great although for me, the scent was overwhelming after a while. Smells like minty chocolate batter...with a little bit of clay.
The first time I used this mask I simply rinsed my face with water to remove it. I did cleanse my skin before applying it! I got a few new zits the next day because it left a filmy layer. After that I decided to use a toner (Thayer's Rose Petal Witch Hazel Toner) after washing off the mask. I like the way my skin looks after using this mask with the toner - brighter and refreshed. It's only temporary though. The next morning, my skin looked the same. I didn't have any breakouts when I used the mask so I am not sure if it would help in clearing skin. I can say that it didn't cause my face to breakout!
Would I purchase this mask again? Yes, but I want to try the others first.
