So I’ve never really been a girl that uses face masks…that is, until I wandered into the LUSH store at the 3rd street promenade in Santa Monica. As most of you know, I’m very familiar with LUSH (and love it) but since there products are so fresh, there are some that I simly haven’t been able to try. I heard about the LUSH Cupcake face mask ($7.95 at LUSH stores nationwide) about a year ago and immediately went to sniff out the situation, no pun intended. I’m a sucker for anything that smells like food, especially chocolate, and believe me, this SMELLS good enough to eat. Initially I was a little scared to try this mask since it specifically says “for oily and teenage skin,” either of which, I am not. I actually have very dry skin…but I just couldn’t resist the chocoate smell and cupcake-like texture. Whatever…I’ll just load up on moisturizer after, right? Well let me tell you…this mask does what it says- within minutes, the oil was litrerally sucked out of my skin- which is a good thing if you are an oily teenager. I left the mask on for the minimum time (5 minutes) and it washed off very nicely with warm water…I have to say, even though Cupcake isn’t right for my skin type, I’d use it again. Yum.
