It’s a funny thing about facial masks I’ve tried SO many but can’t say I’ve tried a variety from Japan. In most cases my facial sheet masks come from either Korea or Taiwan. For all my love of Japanese makeup you’d think that I’d have tried more brands of facial sheet masks from Japan but that’s simply not the case.
Needless to say when I noticed the publicity that Lululun was getting in Japanese magazines I was quite curious about the brand and decided to order some of the masks and try them out.
Take a look!
Lululun Facial Sheet Masks come in three formulas total so there isn’t a huge variety to try. The one I have here is the Transculent Light Whitening formula.
Supposedly the mask is free from oil, alcohol, and fragrances which makes them ideal for sensitive skin.
The masks come in a variety of sizes but the more common is the seven piece variation. This is a single package with a ziploc seal that contains seven individual masks. The packaging is something I instantly disliked. I prefer masks that come in a box and are individually wrapped. The masks come in a huge chunk (you can see what I mean below) so they are pretty much clumped together in the package which means you have remove all seven masks from the package, peel one off, and drop the rest back into the package and reseal. This isn’t exactly hygienic nor can it be good for the masks having to remove them every single time to grab one off.
These are a very thin, delicate cotton fiber that don’t have a great fit on my face. The thinner cotton tends to tear easily during application and during wear. I typically pat gently at the mask through the wear and this unfortunately results in tearing so avoid touching it once you apply. It has cut outs for your eyes, nose, and mouth however, it fits so poorly I felt like the mouth portion was down around my chin and the eyes were up around my forehead. It was just a weird fit overall which also results in tearing as I tried to situate it on my face correctly.
It’s saturated decently with essence but unfortunately not the amount of essence I’d get from a My Beauty Diary or My Scheming Facial Mask. It seems the essence dries up super fast so the mask treatment only lasts about 10 minutes at the most where as I typically wear a mask for 20-30 minutes.
After removal I didn’t really feel like the mask did much for my skin. I didn’t feel any more or less hydrated, my skin wasn’t really brighter, nor did it look any different. At best it moisturized a LITTLE bit but nothing incredibly hydrating here.
Overall, Lululun Face Masks are apparently are a victim of over publicity and hype. These are just awful and not worth a pick up in my humblest. I got mine directly from Japan recently but Imomoko.com just started selling them if you’re curious to try them out for size yourself.
Love to hear your thoughts!
As for me, I say, AVOID them!
