Hiya darlings!! And it's Friday!! I am soooo looking forward to this weekend! It's my grandmother's 80th birthday so some celebrating must be done! Happy Birthday Nana!!
On to my new review! Back in February, I picked up Lush's Cup O'Coffee Face and Body Mask and I'm still fairly new to Lush so I wasn't sure what to expect. I am sooo in love with this product! It's a two-in-one so it makes my nightly routine a bit easier and faster. Let's get to it.
This face and body mask is amazing! I've only used it on my face and I've noticed a huge difference with my acne. I love earthy smelling beauty products and this is definitely it. The smell is a mix of coffee and cocoa extract. According to their site, "Kaolin deeply cleanses impurities from the pores and ground coffee acts as a gentle scrub to buff away dryness and reveal the glowing skin beneath. Smooth this all over your body to feel soft, clean, and wonderful fragrant." And it really does make your skin glow! Since my skin can be sensitive and I would define it as combination, I use this mask every other day. I don't use it everyday because I don't want my skin to get dried out. It's extremely easy to use, it exfoliates, smells good, and your skin will look super smooth.
Since I work really long hours and come home most days absolutely exhausted, I love that I am able to use a product that both exfoliates and I can use it as a mask. I usually wash and cleanse my face, apply the mask, wait 10 minutes, and then wipe away with a damp towel. I'm a fan of this product but it can be extremely messy. That's my only negative about this mask. The grounded coffee grains can get everywhere. I make sure to stay in one area and rinse my hands and face very well.
Bottom line? My acne has decreased, my skin is smoother, dry patches are gone, and my skin is glowing. My skin looks all around healthier. The only downside: it can get messy. Will I be buying this product again? Definitely. After I finish the beauty step, I make sure to use my moisturizer.
Have you used this mask? Are you a Lush fan?
