I was lucky to attend the Bloggers United AU 2nd birthday celebration recently at fabulous Lush Sydney in their beautiful QVB store where we learnt how to make the amazing Lush Cupcake mask which I’ll share below with you, as well as my Lush Cupcake mask review. So keep reading!

Visiting Lush on any occasion is a pleasure with my senses always invigorated by the amazing array of divine scents wafting through the store and the vision of all the dazzling colours of their wonderful bath, body and makeup products!

This visit to Lush was no different. The event was wonderful, mingling with other beauty bloggers, swatching, sampling and sniffing all the stunning Lush products.

Lush Cupcake Face Mask

One of the highlights of the event for me was watching the creation of the Lush chocolate face mask, called the Cupcake mask.
The Lush face mask, Cupcake is one of my favourite fresh Lush face masks.
This Cupcake face mask Lush has created is absolute chocolate heaven! If you haven’t yet pampered your face with this Lush chocolate mask you really need to try it. 
It looks like chocolate, smells like chocolate, tastes like …… NO! Tempted as I was, I didn’t taste it!
It’s often asked “are Lush face masks edible?” and the sad answer is that as chocolatey and good as this Lush Cupcake face mask smells and looks, it does not taste good! You will realise why you wouldn’t eat it as you read through the ingredients list further down this article.
Here’s an idea – how about making an edible chocolate face mask Lush? In the meantime let’s look at how the Lush face mask, Cupcake is created.

How Lush Create Their Cupcake Face Mask

1. Add a linseed infused cloth into the oils for 20 minutes. Then remove the cloth.

2. Tear up and then add the fresh mint leaves.

3. Add the fragrance and glycerine.

4. Add the cocoa powder, Rhassoul mud & talc mixture.

5. Mix, mix, mix, mix, MIX!
6. Divide up into individual pots.

7. Apply! Smooth a generous layer of the Cupcake Lush face mask onto your face and leave for 10 – 15 minutes. This mask is quite thick to apply and I suggest standing over a sink whilst applying so you don’t drop any on the floor. 

The thickness may have just been because at the event we didn’t mix it quite as much as Lush usually does – they usually use industrial mixers instead of doing it manually!

Note this Lush mask needs to be stored in the fridge between uses and should be used up within 3 weeks.

I shared my Cupcake mask with my teenage daughter. It was quite thick to apply and we shared a laugh with both of us feeling as though we were smearing our faces with chocolate cake batter – lol! 
Although we now know the Cupcake mask Lush recipe I think we’ll still continue to buy it from Lush rather than attempt to make it at home!

Lush Cupcake Mask Review

The Cupcake Mask is the best Lush face mask for oily skin. It is also one of the best Lush masks for acne and the best Lush face mask for teenage skin! Every Lush face mask review I have read about the Cupcake mask agrees with this.

It is highly absorbent drawing out and removing any dirt, oil and impurities and thus giving the skin a deep cleanse.

The fresh mint stimulates and tones the skin, whilst the linseed and cocoa butter soften and moisturise your skin. Our faces felt wonderfully cooler and calmer whilst the mask was on.

After removing the mask – what a difference! My daughter’s teenage skin in particular looked so good. It looked mattified in contrast to her skin pre mask yet also felt hydrated. All the excess oil sheen was gone from her face.

Both our skins also felt smoother and softer.

I’ll definitely be buying more of this Cupcake Lush mask for us both when I finish the sample I have. Another product that works well with teenage acne prone skin is CBD Oil.
Thanks to Lush’s generosity, nobody left this event empty handed. All attendees were gifted a bag of Lush goodies as photographed below and we were also allowed to choose one additional item to take home free. I chose the Happy Hippy Shower Gel. My bathroom has never been better scented! 

Thank you so much Lush Sydney!
