This mask works great! I will come straight out and say that the reason why I am giving this a 4 star rating instead of 5 stars is because this mask has to be refrigerated which is kind of inconvenient — I will say that putting the chilled mask on your face does feel wonderful, though! I absolutely love Lush because they use natural ingredients in their products that could go bad if not kept refrigerated, but I do find myself gravitating towards other masks over this one when shopping at Lush just because of the fact that if I purchase the mask I’m unable to leave it with the rest of my skincare items. Other than that, I really don’t have anything bad to say about this mask at all. Not only does this mask smell amazing, but it also does wonderful things for my face! I have extremely sensitive, red, and acne prone skin and this helped minimize the amount of blemishes appearing on my face on a regular basis, and it also helped soothe my redness and didn’t irritate my skin at all! Overall I feel like this mask is awesome aside from the inconvenience of it needing to be refrigerated

Cupcake, a fresh face mask from LUSH, is one of my favourite face masks. It needs to be refrigerated which means it feels really cool and soothing when you apply it. To be honest, because it’s also brown in colour and smells of sweet chocolate, it feels like you’re putting frosting on your face, but it does magical things for my skin. It can be a little tricky to apply, probably because it’s cold, but once it’s on it feels good and it doesn’t itch or irritate my (really) sensitive skin in any way. It smells wonderful, so the experience is a good one. There is enough in a pot to share with a couple of friends (my husband also likes this one) if you want to use it up right away, or you can put it back in the fridge.

Taking the mask off is quite messy, but if you’re equipped with a warm face cloth and some running water, you’ll be fine, you just need to clean up after! My skin always feels bright and really supple after using this mask and I highly recommend it.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LUSH!  I am just going to start off with that, I have been a Lush addict since the first time I walked into their store at my local mall.  When the sales associate suggested the Cupcake face mask to me I was very excited to get home to try it.  It smelled amazing....like drool worthy amazing, just like it's name says Cupcake.  I put it on and waited and as soon as I put it on it felt so nice on my skin.  There was no itchiness or that drying pulling feeling you get from some masks, just wonderful and soothing.  From the very first use I noticed that my skin looked healthier.  After multiple uses the Cupcake face mask has continued to impress me and my skin looks great!  I would and do highly recommend the Cupcake face mask by Lush.

If i were to review this off the smell alone, it would get 5 stars! Unfortunately, the actual product is mediocre. I have an extremely oily, acne-prone skin type with sebaceous filaments and large pores, so this is theoretically the perfect mask for me. I’ve gone through about 3 jars, as I’m an advocate of trying skincare for prolonged periods of time to develop an opinion. I didn’t notice any difference in my skin at all. Also, one of the main ingredients is cocoa butter, which is extremely pore clogging! I wouldn’t recommend, but I gave it 2 stars for the delightful smell, smooth texture, and cooling feeling.

I purchased this product in hopes that it would add extra moisture to my already oily skin. I found that it would make my skin even more oily! I did however like what it did for the parts of my skin that are dry. While I was very shiny after using, I can say that my skin definitely felt hydrated, moisturized and fresh. I loved the scent of this mask. I do also wish it was easier to remove. I would probably repurchase and only use on specific parts of my face, not entirely over my skin.

I LOVE THIS MASK.  This mask is amazing if you have acne prone, oily, sensative skin!  I think that because it needs to be refrigerated it helps soothe the skin more than it would without being refrigerated. My only complaint is the smell, I know everyone loves this mask because it smells like chocolate and don't get me wrong, I love chocolate.  But I HATE that my skin smells like it.  I feel like I need a shower after I use this because of how strong the smell is.

This is such a great and creative product! The chocolate smell makes it honestly irresistible to eat it off your face. Since you need to keep it refrigerated it feels really cooling and refreshing when applied! I feel like my skins looks healthy, more clear and refreshed after using! The only thing I don't like about lush masks is how quick they expire :( But keep the containers and bring them back to the store, the recycle them!!

Lush products smell delightful but i have found that they don’t always work great for me. I also don’t care for the fact that most all of their masks need refrigerated and have a short shelf life. I prefer to have something kept at room temperature that i can use sparingly and not in a week or two before it expires. I haven’t had much success with Lush face masks- never saw any difference than what my face looked prior to use.

First off, this face & body mask smells amazing- just like a fresh cup of coffee! It is definitely one of my favorite skincare products in my daily/weekly routine. I use this after my face wash in the shower and exfoliate the dry spots on my face as well as my hips and shoulders. After, my skin feels soft and smooth and smells great!
Takes a while sometimes to rinse off.
Definitely worth the price- plus you can get a free sample if you aren’t sure if this product is for you!
10/10 recommend.

I live for this face mask! I have a very oily T zone and when I’m feeling very oily or just in the mood for a fun mask that smells great this is my number one! It soaks up the oil on my face so wonderfully and by the time I take it off my skin smells great, is super soft and healthy feeling, and doesn’t feel as greasy or oily. I also have very sensitive skin which this product doesn’t break me out at all which I love!!

I bought Lush Cupcake mask yesterday, but the mask is quite drying and hard to spread around. Does anybody else experience this same problem?
