Review: Lush Cupcake mask

Saturday, November 29, 2014

Hello,
I'm here again with a Lush review :)
This time I'm reviewing a sample of a face mask, however you'll see why I think I've tested it properly. I know I haven't yet bought a full-size version of this mask, however I already had 4 samples of this, which combined together lasted me for abour 12 uses and I think I can review it properly for you.

Živjo,
še ena ocena Lush izdelka :)
Tokrat bom govorila o vzorcu maske za obraz z imenom Cupcake. Kljub temu, da je vzorec, je kar velik in ker sem že imela 4 vzorce te maske, sem jo lahko uporabila nekje 12 krat, zato menim, da jo vseeno lahko dobro ocenim za vas. Prodajalko lahko pri nakupu lepo prosite za vzorček kakšnega izdelka in vam ga bodo verjetno z veseljem podarile :)





Lush says:
Rhassoul mud, which is highly absorbent, works with cocoa powder to draw out all the dirt and impurities and give a deep cleanse. Fresh mint stimulates and tones the skin, whilst linseed and cocoa butter soften and moisturise. Smoothe a generous layer of this mask onto your face and leave for 10 to 15 minutes.
More about Ingredients: here.

Lush pravi:
Maska Cupcake diši naravnost fantastično in mamljivo draži nos. Njena čokolada je odlična za mastno oziroma najstniško kožo, maroška glina in lojevec pa globinsko očistita pore, zatreta mozolje ter absorbirata odvečni kožni sebum. Kakavovo maslo, poparek lanenih semen in kakav v prahu zmehčajo povrhnjico, olji poprove in zelene mete pa kožo uravnotežita ter spodbujata njeno prekrvavitev.

Yes it doesn't look nice, but it smells good and it's pleasant.
Vem, da ne zgleda najlepše, ampak zelo njami diši in je tudi prijeten občutek.


Review:
First of all, this smells like chocolate heaven. I don't like to eat chocolate that often, however this lovely smell of cacao and a bit of mint is just gorgeous and yummy for sure.
The texture is a bit gritty because of the seeds, however still smooth and it applies easily onto your skin.
The ingredients are supposed to be really good for combo/oily skin. On your skin it dries and when you're taking it off using the water, it crumbles. It can be quite messy to take off, just because it is a dark color so you might experience some brown hair if you're blond, but it's all washable.
I love how it mattifies my skin afterwards, gets rid of the oils and it refreshes my face (that's also because of the mint). Also it feels a bit scruby and leaves your skin feeling soft, without making it tight or dry at all. Plus, my skin smells like chocolate even for an hour after removing it.
I feel like it does tame my pimples a bit, when they are present, however I don't notice any changes in my pores. As the ladies in the Lush tell you, you're suppossed to store it in the fridge, so it stays fresh and also because of that it can be a bit cooling in the summer.

The only downside to it is that you have to use the whole tube in a month (because it's freshly made), so I don't know if it's good to use face masks that much.
One day, when my skin will be too oily and my store will actually stock the full size (they sell out so quickly!), I will buy it.
All in all, I love this mask and I do recommend you trying it, however I just wish date of usage would be longer. Keep in mind it's not cheap too (depends on where you live), however I believe you get a lot of use out of the big tube.

Ocena: 
Najprej naj povem, da obožujem vonj te "čokoladne" maske. Čeprav ne jem čokolade zelo pogosto, mi je ta vonj po kakavu in meti zelo prijeten in prav za pojest.
Tekstura je bolj zrnata zaradi semen, ampak še vedno gladka in enostavna za nanašanje.
Sestavine naj bi bile zelo dobre za mešano do mastno kožo. Na koži se po nanosu posuši in ko jo odstranjuješ z vodo se tudi malo "drobi". Odstranjevanje je lahko malce nerodno, saj je maska kar temna in če si blondinka lahko tvoji lasje postanejo malce rjavi, vendar se vse umije dol.

Všeč mi je kako matira mojo kožo, odstrani vsa olja z nje ter jo osveži (posledica mete). Prav tako pa deluje malce čistilno kot piling in je koža po uporabi mehka, brez, da bi jo maska zategovala ali izsuševala. Prav tako pa moja koža po uporabi diši po čokoladi še kakšno uro.
Malce mi pomaga pomiriti mozoljčke, vendar ne opazim nobenih razlik v ogrcih/porah.
Če še ne veš ali ti prodajalka pozabi povedat, se ta maska shranjuje v hladilniku, zato da tudi ostane sveža. Zaradi takšnega shranjevanja pa lahko poleti delujejo tudi ohlajujoče.

Edino kar mi ni všeč pri teh svežih maskah je, da moreš veliko tubico porabit v mesecu, saj je sveže narejena. Ne vem pa, če je dobro masko za obraz tako pogosto uporabljat. Sama načrtujem nakup velike embalaže maske, ko bo moja koža res mastna in jo bom lahko dobila v svoji Lush trgovini, saj je vedno razprodana.
Meni je drugače maska zelo všeč, čeprav ni ravno najcenejša, vendar je cena primerljiva z drugimi ter s količino, ki jo dobite. Edino res jo je treba hitro porabit. 

Cena: €10,45 / 75g

Love and Lemons.

  2. Hej :) tudi sama imam to masko in te moram popravit. Nerabis je porabit tako hitro. Do roka jo imas v hlasilniku potem pa jo das v zmrzovalnik (jaz si jo dam v te male posodice od njihovih testerjev) in preprosto ob uporabi vzames kolko rabis, ostalo pustiš zamrznjeno. Mi je ta nasvet dala Lusheva prodajalka v Gradcu ;)
