I'm so torn over whct to think of this mask. Normally I really love Lush stuff and in the store this smelled great, looked . . . interesting ;) but ultimately seemed to be what I was looking for. I think it was the mud/chocolate factor that made me purchase in the end.
But to be honest I didn't notice much difference in my skin afterwards (apart from it being very smooth and tight but I just attributed that to having to scrub so damn hard to get it off in the end) plus the smell made me feel so ill it just wasn't worth it. I am normally quite sensitive to scents in products but this was the first time I had ever actually felt sick from something. For the exfoliating factor I would rather purchase the Love Lettuce mask.
its my first time using Lush's mask. i bought it this evening and i couldnt wait so i used it tonight after shower! after i washed it off, my skin does feel softer, and cleaner. its a good mask! but one lippie has to be taken off because it is 1. hard to apply and 2. hard to wash off. it took me ages just to put it on and take it off. but nonetheless im satisfied with the result. will try Love the Lettuce mask next time... but i might come back to this one! =)
EDIT: just too much trouble to go to as far as a mask goes. there are better clay masks out there which do not require as much work. and the expiration date is a bigger problem. it just expires too damn quickly. not worth my $$$. continued >>
I dun like this mask. It mite be a good exfoliator with all the granular bits, but it doesnt really deep cleans my pores. Dun like the smell and the texture was runny, very very messy to use. The one i bought had large amount of oil on top, i had to pour alot out, just to stop it from being too runny. Originally, I wanted to buy the 50g to try first, but the sales was pushy and said it only comes in 100g, but not wat it said in the catalogue. Had a bad experience with this purchase!
I love Chocolate and I love Clay/Mud masks so this is a real winner for me. It's a little on the chunky side, but I love putting it on cold and letting it cool on my face in the bath. It tightens as it drys, but didn't leave my skin dry afterwards because of all the oils in it. I love the "minty Poocake" description, but I don't think it smells Poo-ish at all. LOL. It is pricy for $10, but I find it a worthwhile treat. The Brazened Honey one smells kind of similar to it so you might want to try that one if you don't like the looks of this one. Most Lush stuff is great! :0)
the best! left my skin totally cleansed and refreshed. my skin felt smooth for the rest of the day. must try if you have normal-oily skin.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't a mask supposed to actually do something for your face? Personally, I find this product totally overrated. The main reason why it is so popular is probably because of its supposedly adorable bakery-like chocolate cupcake scent, but it was barely impressive. As the mask would dry it would fall off of my face in clumps, so you really cannot walk around the house while wearing this. My face didn't feel any softer, look anymore radiant, or anything. Just a novelty item as far as I'm concerned.
This mask smells so disguisting. I can't see/feel enough of a difference in my skin for it to be worth the stench!
It smells like a LUSH store coated in fake chocolate and doused in mint frosting - I'm nauseous just thinking about it.
Not worth the ridiculous price. I much prefer the Seaweed mask from LUSH's fresh farmacy range.
This mask is a nice, relaxing one to use, but the chocolate smell is definitely on the "fake" side. I couldn't tell much difference in my skin after using this one, but it was nice to smear that dark chocolate-like substance all over my face and then soak in a bubble bath!
My first bio-fresh mask from LUSH. Like a lot of people, I was weak for it because of the promise of chocolate as an ingredient. Cupcake has a really pleasant chocolate mint scent, although my roommate can detect a hint of mud. It looks like mud in the container, and is super thick but spreads fairly well if you let it sit out a few minutes before using it. I like everything about this mask but I haven't quite noticed any difference in my skin when I use it. I have really oily skin, and because of the expiration date, I've been using it more often than I normally mask. The mask makes my face tingle as it dries, and I feel clean and smooth afterward, but my face generally feels the same way after I wash it. My only complaint is that it kinda makes a mess when you remove it. I did, however, get nine generous masks out of the tub. I'll try a few other bio-fresh products before considering a repurchase.
Hhmmm I had been lemming this for so long and finally succumbed and went into LUSH to take a look and buy some. First of it looked great, sort of like chocolate cake mix but also a bit like poo. When I sniffed it I expected it to smell like chocolate but to my nose it smelled like minty poo. Sorry if this sounds awful but just being honest as I was disappointed by the smell. HOWEVER, I did buy some, I got a spoonful in those cheap & dodgy plastic cups which cost me $11 aud.
I applied it it and sat poo-faced for about ten minutes.
I must admit I did like the feel of my skin when I rinsed it off and since that's what really matters I will re-purchase Poocake Mask in the future. continued >>
