Cupcake, for you face?

I don't think there has ever been a time since I turned 13 where I haven't had a spot on my face. As I'm nearing 20 now I think it's time that they disappear. I've tried many, many different spot treatments in my time, and it seems as soon as one goes, another comes along to keep it company.

When watching a favourites video on Youtube by Miss Glamorazzi I saw her talk about the Lush Chocolate Cupcake Face Mask.

It is meant for teenage, oily and spot prone skin so I thought I would give it a go.

It has a sort of chocolate mixed with mint smell which I quite like but I've heard that others aren't fans. Its quite a thick consistency with little lumps in. I do find it very messy though so make sure you check were you put it on and take it off. I like to put it on before I get in the shower as not to make too much of a mess.


I'm really annoyed that I forgot to take a before picture but here is what my face looked like after. The redness had reduced and my skin was left clear and fresh which was nice. However this didn't last very long and by the next morning the spots were back to the way they were before and my skin looked quite dull again.

I do like the way this product leaves your skin, however it doesn't have the lasting power I wanted. It would be good for using before a night out or a special occasion to give you a fresh glow and reduce redness.

I think I got mine for around £5 for a fair sized amount (I get about 4-5 uses out of it) however it does have a life expectancy and has to be kept in the fridge.


I would overall give the product a 3/5 as it did make my skin look nice and fresh afterwards, I just wish that effect lasted a little longer. I really want to try the Catastrophe Cosmetic face mask and see what that's like.


Have you tried either of these products? What do you think?
