If you have been reading my blog, you probably know I suffer from oily/combination skin as well as constant acne. I have tried many skin care products to fix my skin issues and my skin has improved since my earlier teen years when I did give my skincare much thought. Many oily skinned Lush fans raved on and on about the Cupcake Fresh Face Mask so I had to give it a shot. It is meant to calm oily, teenage skin which is pretty much what I have. At only $5.95 for a tub, what did I have to lose, right?
The ingredients in these fresh face masks are so fresh that they expire in just three weeks after they are made. You can only purchase these from a Lush store since they do not ship them on their website. These masks must be kept chilled in the refrigerator as well.

I will be tossing out the product in the tub but saving the container because if you bring back five empty black Lush pots, you get a free fresh face mask. I will not be repurchasing Cupcake for obvious reasons but I may try another face mask to see if I get the same reaction. I probably will ask for a sample next time. Have you tried Cupcake or any of Lush's other fresh face masks? If you have, tell me how your experience was :)
