Wake Me Up Before You Go Go | Superdrug Coffee Face Mask VS Lush Cup O' Coffee Face Mask

Hey everyone!

Welcome to a brand new blog post! I thought that today, I would talk to you all about two face masks that I've been using to sort my face out during the Winter months.

A birds eye shot of a black cosmetic tub with a black label with Lush in bold black letters with Cup O' Coffee in black informal font with Face and Body Mask in small black capital letters on a white background.

Coffee Face Masks have slowly become a big trend within the beauty/cosmetic industry within the last year due to many reasons including the fact that it helps to wake you up in the morning via its smell, that the coffee beans that are in the product help to exfoliate dry skin and that the exfoliation helps to regenerate new skin.

I love Cup O' Coffee from Lush especially as it contains a Coffee Infusion, Caffeine, Agave Syrup and Roasted Cocoa Extract which gives the product a sweet smoky scent whilst still containing Caffeine to give yourself and your skin a glow. The smell of this product reminds me of when you walk straight into a coffee shop. The beans help to really scrub wherever you use it which makes it a great product for the Winter season. The only problem with this product for me is that its slightly expensive so when I found out that Superdrug had brought out a dupe of this product I knew that I had to try it.

Superdrug's Coffee Face Mask contains Coffee Beans and a plethora of other amazing goodies to get into the skin and ensure that it is awake and clean for the day ahead. The texture is quite creamy with a fine scrub and smells more of when you open a jar/tin of coffee compared to when it's been brewed like Cup O' Coffee. I also think that it would be great for the Winter period due to the creaminess of this product, and the smell doesn't last for too long which means that you can put something on top eg moisturiser or anything like that. I do think that to get the full potential.

As the Superdrug is a cheaper version, it is probably the better one for those who don't want to spend a lot on a face mask as Superdrug always have offers such as buy one get one half price or just half price which makes these face masks even cheaper but if you love Lush or stand by their ethics then Cup O' Coffee may be best but I do think that the Superdrug is also better for a more everyday sort of use as a scrub within the Winter especially due to it being a little bit more moisturising to the skin.

The Superdrug Coffee Face Mask costs £4.99 for 75ml.

The Lush Cup O' Coffee costs £7.25 for 150g or £13.95 for 325g.

Have you tried either of these Face Masks? Are you using any particular Face Masks at the moment? Let me know down below! 

Thank you for reading this beauty based blog post and I hope that you come back for another blog post next time.

Thanks for reading!
