As the name suggests, the mask itself is actually made of coffee. It has ground coffee beans, caffeine powder and coffee infusion as well as fragrance additives, algave, kaolin
and glycerine, making it an interesting mix that smells exactly like a freshly made cup of coffee. The groun
d coffee stimulates the senses and the skin whilst offering an exfoliation for your skin, kaolin helps give your pores the deep cleansing that they may need and algave is the ‘glue’ if you will, that holds the mask together, leaving your skin incredibly soft.
To use it, you’ll need to put on a generous amount to your face and wait for around 10 to 15 minutes, until you finally can wash it off with lukewarm water. Whilst you’re washing it off, you’ll want to massage your face very gently, this way, you will get the benefits of the grainy coffee pieces which are used to exfoliate your skin, giving it a very deep cleanse to your face. I personally suggest that you rinse this off in the shower as it is a messy mask to wash off in the sink or anywhere else for that matter.
After using this product, I definitely saw a difference on my face. It felt very fresh, soft, and I also saw a huge different in the craters that have been appearing on my face. The redness on my spots had gone down and the morning afterwards, most of them had actually disappeared!
The mask itself comes in two different size pots. 150g which is £6.75 and the bigger one, at 325g which is £12.25. I purchased the 150g post, which I highly recommend as this mask goes a long way and you really don’t need that much either.
If you want to have a look at it or try some, I suggest you pop into your local Lush store and have a word with one of their employees, as I’m sure they can explain it much better than I can, or you can pop over to their website here and have a little read through.
If you’ve tried it before, let me know what you think and how you got on with it, and if you haven’t, I highly suggest that you do!
