Cup O’ Coffee: The Ultimate Mask for Coffee Lovers

Ever feel like your skin needs an energy boost? We all know what coffee does for your all-nighters and commutes for your 8 a.m., so how about that same treatment to your skin? No, you won’t literally have to pour hot coffee all over your face, Cup O’Coffee by Lush will do all the work for you.

During the winter time, our skin loses its tan from the summer, in addition to its healthy glow. Dead skin piles up on the skin and hides the glow that we see during the warmer times of the year. We lose the natural moisture in our skin because of the harsh wind and climate change from fall to winter.

Cup O’Coffee contains roasted cocoa extract and coffee grounds that help exfoliate your skin to appear brighter and refreshed. The rich, intoxicating smell will have you awake and energized for the day ahead. Your skin will be so radiant that people will be asking you what highlighter you are wearing.

Not only is Cup O’ Coffee a face mask, it’s also a body mask!  Scrub your legs with some of the mask as an exfoliant before you shave so you can get the best result for smooth, razor burn free shave! Now you can say that you have bathed in coffee. (Lorelai Gilmore would be proud.)

This mask isn’t only restricted for your ordinary morning mask, you can use it in the middle of the day if you are feeling sleepy or feeling a little shiny in the t-zone area. Once you open the pot, that aroma will have you buzzing just like your morning cup(s) of coffee do.

Pro tip: Leave the mask on your skin for about 5 minutes for the grounds to really soak in your skin. After you rinse the mask off, apply cold water to your face to close your pores and really get your skin glowing.

Cup O’ Coffee goes for $10.99 for 5.2 oz or $19.95 for 11.4 oz at

If you don’t want to commit to a big pot of the mask, opt for a sample size at any lush store, they will happily give you a sample.
