SKINCARE - LUSH Cup O Coffee Face and Body Mask

by - February 12, 2016

As a coffee addict, LUSH’s Cup O’ Coffee Face and Body Mask ($9.99-$19.99) is right up my alley and smells like an insanely delicious cup of mocha. It claims to exfoliate and smooth the skin while leaving you looking and feeling fresh.
Notable ingredients include ground coffee, agave syrup, glycerin and caffeine, along with oils and extracts. The ground coffee gives the mask it’s coarse texture and is acts as the exfoliator. Agave and glycerin, on the other hand, give the mask it’s smooth and gelatinous texture while the caffeine helps awaken the skin. I love that this mask is smooth but thick enough to stay put with a consistency like pudding. I also love that it uses ground coffee as the exfoliator instead of microbeads, which has blown up for it’s effect on our ecosystems.
I also use this as a pre-shower mask, because it’s just easier to wash off when you don’t have to work about getting tiny coffee grinds everywhere. Its gelatinous texture makes it a dream when applying it to the skin and I usually leave it on for 10 minutes before scrubbing and rinsing it off. Although it is both a face and body mask, I can’t justify using this on my body when I have many other body scrubs. I’m not sure if the coffee and caffeine wake up my skin like they are intended to, but it doesn’t have any negative effects so I’m not complaining.

Would I recommend this face mask? 100x yes. It smells amazing, it feels amazing and my skin seems to like it. Did I mention it smells amazing? If you don’t like coffee, I dare you to smell it, maybe it’ll change your mind!

Let's be friends!
