If there is a Lush product I have been super excited about, it’s this, Cup O’ Coffee Face And Body Mask. I was meant to pick this up in London when I visited the Oxford Street store, but I never got around to it. I never even picked up a sample! I had heard nothing but good about this, so I was pretty sad that I was missing out on such an amazing product. SO when Lush announced that this would be coming out for Lush’s summer collection in all stores in the UK, I visited my favourite Lush store and picked it up, the DAY it came out. So I couldn’t wait to review this for you guys.
I’ve been using this face mask for three to four weeks now and I can safely say that I really have seen a difference in my skin, and one I really love. This face mask comes in two sizes, 150g pot for £6.50 which is the one I picked up, or a larger 325g pot for £12.00. I wanted to pick up the larger of the two tubs so that it would last me ages, but I didn’t bother considering this only lasts three months, whether you open it or not. This also means it’s a longer lasting face mask than the usual Lush face masks which tend to only last a week to three weeks. I’m also glad I only picked up the smaller tub as this so far has lasted me ages, a little bit really does go a long way!
One thing I want to say about this face mask is, if you don’t like the smell of coffee, then I recommend you at least give this a sniff in store, and get a sample to try before you buy. I love the smell of coffee, and to be honest I have to at least love the smell of burnt coffee by now considering I smell it at my job everyday. That is exactly what this smells of, strong, burnt coffee. It isn’t the nicest smell in the world, but I rather like it.
The texture of this face mask is really odd, but somewhat nice too. It’s a thick sticky mask that you really need to dig your fingers into. As I mentioned before, a little goes a long way and due to how thick it is you don’t need to really apply much to get a nice layer of mask on the face.
I leave this on for 10 minutes, maybe 15 depending. This is a pretty messy face mask, and one I tend to use in the bath due to this. It rinses off better and you can lie back and relax with a good book, something on YouTube, or like me, South Park on my iPad, or Kardashian Hollywood on my iPhone… FYI I hold my phone over the bath! I’m not stupid. 😛
So onto what is in the face mask, other than coffee of course. Ground coffee is good for the skin as it evens out skin tone, and helps with cellulite, which is why this is also a body mask. You can use this on your thighs to get rid of any cellulite. Something I need to try myself! It also contains cocoa extract to help keep the skin soft and smooth.
When I rinse this off my skin looks bright, and feels soft and smooth. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a quick change in my skin after using a face mask until now. This is definitely a weekly staple for me, whilst also being a gorgeous weekly treat that I use midweek.
This sadly doesn’t share it’s scent with anything from Lush. I wish it did, as I love the smell of coffee… As I said previously.
I’m just so damn happy that this is now no longer an exclusive. It’s done really well so far sales wise, and on the day it was released on the website, the small tub sold out in hours! Amazing, huh?
