As far as I'm concerned the ingredients list is pretty friendly, although obviously if you are sensitive to the essential oils used then slathering this over your face is probably not a sensible idea. Otherwise, there's no nasty preservatives or anything like that, just lovely natural ingredients (and perfume). The only one I'd question is talc, but I think as it's in the form of a cream product rather than just as powder, even that can be excused (it's included to help the mask spread more evenly).Lush's Cupcake Fresh Face Mask is available from Lush in-store and online, priced at £5.95 for 75g of product which in my experience will provide 5-6 uses, thus working out to just over £1 per use which is an absolute BARGAIN. You should bear in mind however, that these masks have a limited shelf life, generally three weeks from the date of manufacture, so you do end up having to use it fairly frequently (say twice a week) to get the full use out of it. All in all, this was a really lovely face mask for me, smelling incredible and leaving my oily skin visibly calmer, smoother and less oily. I'd recommend this if like me your skin is oily and/or blemish prone, and it is one I'll be repurchasing in the future.
Have you tried any of Lush's Fresh Face Masks? Which is your favourite? Do you like chocolate-y products like me?
