Advantages: Great smell, soothing on face!
Disadvantages: Expensive!! Nearly £6 for 75g!
This was the first Lush fresh face mask I tried. Before purchasing I got a sample in a small plastic tub with one of my purchases after asking the staff there. I'd walked past the fresh face masks and smelt this one - it just smelt too good, but I didn't know whether it was worth the money.
Currently 'Cupcake' is priced at £5.75/75g, which is the same price as the other masks that they sell. I would recommend getting a sample first just to make sure you like it and to also do a small patch test in case you're allergic to the ingredients. As far as I'm aware, they are still doing this deal (in the UK) where if you bring back 5 black tubs, you can pick out a fresh face mask for free. (Great opportunity for trying out new products!) I picked the mask not only because it smells like delicious, rich chocolate cake, but because it is meant to absorb grease.
I have combination skin so I'm not too greasy, but I wanted to try it all the same. I didn't notice huge changes after using it, but it did make my skin feel nicer immediately afterwards and felt soothing when on my face. I don't get spots often, so I can't say whether it will improve acne prone skin. (From reviews I read when I first started using it, people do report that it helps to reduce redness of spots.)
It's easy to remove - you can just use a wet face towel, but I prefer to use cotton pads since it is a bit messy! At this price I seldom buy it, but it is quite a lovely product to have for pampering. The product doesn't last very long, especially if you want to apply generous amounts of chocolatey smelling goodness on your face (please don't eat!) Please note that since these are fresh, they need to be stored in a fridge.
Overall, it's a product I use to feel happy and pampered - the smell is lovely and it puts me in a good mood, but I wouldn't purchase this often since it is far too much for the amount of use you can get out. It's only 75g and the expiry date for these fresh products aren't as long as for other Lush products!
I would give this product 3-4 stars since the price does drag the rating down for me!
Summary: A feel good product that is lovely for pampering yourself with every so often!
