Lush Cup o' Coffee Face Mask

Calling all coffee lovers - I've found the face mask of dreams.



I've been a long time fan of Lush's Mask of Magnaminty, partly because it's great but also partly because it's self-preserving so generally a bit easier to use (as in I don't have to walk to the fridge to get it). A couple of months ago while I was browsing Lush I spotted this one - Cup o' Coffee. I don't know if it's relatively new or if I've just never noticed it before, but it's also self-preserving and (here's the important part) it has coffee in it.

It smells absolutely amazing (if you like coffee anyway) and I just love wearing it for the smell - it also has cocoa in it so literally smells like a creamy mocha. The general idea is that the caffeine in the coffee granules is supposed to rejuvenate and wake up your skin and I do think I see an improvement in my skin after using this - I just look that bit healthier and less like a living zombie. As well as that it makes my skin so soft I kind of just want to sit and stroke my own face after I've used it (weirdo). I love face masks where you can see some results straightaway and this is definitely one of those.

The one downside of this mask is the mess! It is messy to take off so I usually try to do it in the shower or bath so that I can wash it off in there rather than make a mess of my sink (and whole bathroom). It's definitely worth doing despite the mess though!

Before I end this review I feel like I need to reiterate how good it smells - like I want to eat it good. Seriously guys, if you like coffee you will love this.

Have you tried this mask before? What did you think? What are your favourite face masks?

  1. Do not fear my love - you are not the only one who strokes their face after doing a mask! I've even got my boyfriend to stroke my face sometimes. LOVE how soft they make my skin feel and you've reminded me how much I used to love this coffee mask last year. Going in the basket...!

  3. Coffee lover right here and I'm pretty surprised I've not heard of this one from Lush before? It sounds like a great mask! I remove most of my masks from the shower, anyway, so I think this would work alright for me!
