Hi guys! I wanted to start a new series on the blog called “Is it Worth it Wednesday”! Basically, I will try out new products and give you guys a review on them. I think it will be a great way for me to try out new products and also let you guys know whether or not they’re worth your money. Today I wanted to talk about the Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face and Body Mask. I got this as a gift for Christmas, and I’ve been trying it out ever since. Its basically an exfoliating mask made up of ingredients such as… ground coffee and caffeine powder.
Coffee wakes us up and keeps us going every morning and it does the same for your skin! The ground coffee acts as an exfoliant. It will remove all of the dead skin cells that are left on your face or body. Leaving your face/body feeling super smooth, and looking radiant and bright. It can also calm inflamed or red skin, which sounds weird because coffee is associated with energy and waking up, but the antioxidants in the coffee aide the redness.
This mask has a thick consistency and is easy to spread on your face. Some masks burn my skin but this one doesn’t! I leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then I rinse with warm water and rub it all over to make sure I get a good scrub. It leaves my skin feeling so nice and smooth.
The only down side about this mask, in my opinion, is the strong smell. It has a coffee smell mixed with a musky sort of scent. I’m so bad at explaining scents… can you tell?? Although I can tolerate the smell, if you don’t like strong scents (especially on your face), I wouldn’t recommend this!
Despite the smell, this face mask is definitely worth it! The 5.2oz container retails for $11.95. I will definitely be repurchasing this product! It works for my skin and is affordable at the same time. Click here to read more about the many benefits of coffee.
