5 Must-Have Lush Facial Cleansers For Summer

I am a huge fan of the Lush Facial Cleansers and while I love using them year round I especially love these 5 picks for the Summer months.

Here are my 5 favorite Lush Cleanser Picks for Summer!

Lush Ocean Face And Body Scrub Salt – I am finding that Ocean Salt is so refreshing after a day in the sun. I have the self-preserving formula which means there’s no synthetic preservatives. In addition to Ocean Salt it also has avocado butter and lime which make my skin so soft.

Lush Let the Good Times Roll Cleanser – This one smells like fresh cookie dough which has Maize flour and corn meal which gives my face a nice glow.

Lush Dark Angels – I really love this cleanser. Dark Angels is made from charcoal powder and does a wonderful job on my oily skin. I just take a pinch and rub in into a paste in my hand and then rub it on my face. It does stain wash cloths though.

Lush Ultrabland Facial Cleanser – The Ultrabland cleanser is very mild and has beeswax and honey to remove dirt and grim. I personally can’t use this one everyday because I do have more oily skin but it’s such a great moisturizer when my combination skin gets dry. It also has a very mild scent and is supposed to be great for sensitive skin.

Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face & Body Mask – Cup O’ Coffee is technically a mask but I use it as a cleanser. It smells just like fresh brewed coffee and the grain grains do wonders on my skin as an exfoliant. This one definitely wakes me up in the morning and leaves my skin smooth and glowing.

Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face & Body Mask Review

Today I bring to you a delightful treat!

I happen to LOVE the smell of coffee, ironically I hate the taste and only drink tea so I get my coffee fix from candles, coffee beans and now  Lush Cup O’ Coffee Face and Body Mask.

The Cup O’ Coffee mask is now my go-to morning treat. I use it about 2-3 times per week which might be too much if you have sensitive skin. My skin type is on the oily side (I know weird for someone over 40) but I definitely get greasy on the T-Zone.

What I love about Lush Cup O’ Coffee.

Aside from the smell (which is a super deep, deep rich coffee bean aroma) I love the texture. Most masks are either clay or sticky peel off types. This mask is about the consistency of Karo Syrup (which makes sense because it’s got Organic Agave Syrup) with a nice grit from the coffee. I love how easily it spreads on too. Just coat your fingers and rub on your entire face or your problem areas.

The other thing I love is that it does not slide off or feel like a goopy mess. I leave my mask on for 5 minutes then wash off using a wash rag and warm water. Afterwards my skin is silky smooth and more pores are noticeably smaller.

I get zero irritation or redness from this product and it keeps my face looking great year round.

You can also use this product in the shower. I use it on my arms and shoulders for a great glow. Another bonus is that the coffee smell lingers for awhile.

Here is the product on my arm. That weird circular mark is from my Apple Watch (told you I was a geek)!


Price: $10.95 for 5.2 oz. or $19.95 for 11.4 oz.

I do recommend that you get the 5.2 oz tub unless you’re sharing it. The product expires fairly quickly (4 months) and if you’re only using it 2-3 times per week as a face mask you’ll be better off getting a new 5.2 oz. tub every month or so.
