  • "This stuff smells amazing!!! It isn't self preserving so you do have to keep this in the fridge! I really liked this mask, however it broke my sisters skin out and she is acne prone! I have sensitive skin as well, but it didn't break me out. " in 137 reviews

Even though this mask is targeted for oily, acne prone skin, I think all skin types would benefit from this mask. It is really good at balancing the skin by gently removing excess oil and leaving it soft without feeling heavy. Yes, you do have to refrigerate it, and yes it doesn't have the best shelf life, but it's not as expensive as other masks you get elsewhere. Because of the shelf life, I don't feel guilty really slathering a thick layer onto my skin. It has a floral chocolate fudge smell, but I love it!

This is a great gentle mask for those who want to pamper themselves and mask 2-3x a week. I've left this on for longer than suggested and didn't suffer any excessive dryness or skin irritations (even on the thin and sensitive skin on my neck!), just smooth, clean skin.

But if you're looking for a mask that will pulverize zits, and suck the life out of your pores like a vampire, this is not the mask for you (enter Aztec Indian Healing Clay for your more aggressive needs).

This is the first fresh face mask I’ve ever purchased from Lush and my overall review of it is ok. A part of the container was empty so I was kind of disappointed because it was around $10. Also, it is very thick and really hard to spread around the face. It attaches to my finger and usually rolls up so I can’t spread it all around. The scent is also quite strong, it smells a little like chocolate but mostly dirt. On the bright side, I did notice the redness from my face go away which was really amazing and reduced the oil from my skin. Overall, this product does the job but it’s very complicated.

Can we just take a second and talk about how freaking AMAZING this mask smells! It’s like a chocolate mint paradise! I am a HUGE lushie, and this was one of the first products I had purchased from the brand, and ever since, I have not been disappointed. I love that it is so fresh, that you have to refrigerate it. Which makes the whole experience so much better, because it is nice and cool. Perfect for when you have had one of those long and exhausting days and you want nothing more than to cuddle up to your cat, watch some Netflix and get your face mask on!! 💎

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

I am obsessed with all LUSH products. I have combination/sensitive skin & I have never found anything to really clear my face up & keep it hydrated. Honestly the pricing is perfect for the natural products you are getting & you know you’re paying for ingredients not just packaging like most skin care lines you find at Sephora or ulta. I truly am a LUSH activist & recommend all LUSH products to my friends & family when they have any skin concerns. I love what the brand stands for as well, overall great company.

LUSH Cupcake Fresh Face Mask is not a personal favorite of mine. My skin is very dry/dehydrated and this mask is best for absorbing a lot of oil with rhassoul mud and cocoa powder. For someone who produces a lot of oil, this will be AMAZING for you. The product isn’t harsh at all, smells like a dream, and feels cooling from added peppermint oil. When I feel like I need a detox I usually would grab for LUSH Mask of Magnaminty instead because it doesn’t dry me out. But, Cupcake does clear out the pores and make the skin very smooth. Wouldn’t recommend for someone with dry skin.

Lush!!!😍😍 not only are they VEGAN and NATURAL but they don’t test on animals!! I think I hear angels singing😍😍 but seriously all of their face masks are worth a try!! I love that you keep them in the fridge which makes them stay extra fresh!! The cupcake mask smells like chocolate, and looks like you rubbed brownie batter all over your face! Lol I could seriously eat this stuff it smells so yummy!! Just like a cupcake! The cooling effect from it being in the fridge also feels very nice ! Super soothing and hydrating!

First and foremost, the scent of this mask its STRONG. It's an overpowering smell of cocoa powder and their concoction of oils which have quite a musky/piney smell. It's also a very, very think mask, it was actually quite hard to apply because it was so thick. This mask didn't do much other than removing the oils from my face. It didn't calm my redness of anything as promised which is what enticed me into buying it in the first place. So needles s to say, I won't be repurchasing it again.

It smells.... odd. Definitely not like real chocolate. Smells like a fake chocolate with a weird earthy undertone? Smell aside, it’s hard to spread around the face without tugging the skin, which I do not like since I am all about wrinkle prevention. Once it’s on and it’s ready to come off, this takes forever to rinse away. It expires in no time, which is also frustrating as I’ve had to throw out unused product. At least it makes the skin soft and smooth for an okay price.

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