LuLuLun is a facial mask brand that has featured in several beauty magazines in Japan, making it very popular in the country but also in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
I wanted to try those masks as they are not really expensive, and the package looked cute ^^ There are different types of those masks, Moist (pink), High Moisture (Blue), and Translucent Light (White). All three are known for containing ingredients that reduce the production of melanin in the skin and to calm it. They also are good for sensitive skins, as they are fragrance, color, and mineral oil free! I chose the first one which is the basic moisturizing mask, available on a package of 42 sheets, or a travel pack of 7 sheets.
First, I was surprised as the package does not have the color of the photo but it was most a metallic pink instead of a plain baby pink as I was expecting. Just a detail. The package is cute, with instructions at the back, but no English. You just have some drawings to help but as it’s easy and you don’t need to be super smart to place a facial mask (…do you?), it’s not a problem ^^
The sheets are closed in a zip bag so it guarantees the freshness and you can close it back once you took your sheet. The biggest problem I found with that system is that the sheets are all stuck together, and it’s not easy to take only one. The first time I tried, I found my hands with 2 sheets and full of product… Plus, they are not easy to take off as they are deep in the bag.
Well, for the price you can’t really complain but once you’ll get one sheet, your problems won’t stop as it’s very hard to unfold it because it’s made in very thin and fragile cotton.
Anyhow, once you’ll find the way and not have lost your temper, the sensation of the mask against your skin is very fresh! (Maybe a little too fresh sometimes). So your skin can relax while absorbing the essence. The sheet sticks well to your face so you can do whatever you want, it won’t fall off, but personally I prefer to take this time to relax myself and to stay lie on the bed with closed eyes.
When you will remove the sheet, you will be totally relaxed and your skin will be refreshed and very moisturized! The skin is not sticky, and will stay soft. I really liked this sensation, as it proves that your skin really absorbed the most of the product and liked it 😀
These masks are made for a daily use, but as it stays really fresh in the package, you can easily use them only twice per week if you want.
Will I buy them again? I’m not sure yet, but maybe I’ll try the other types to see ^^ These are not the best facial masks that you can find, I think. But they are good for quickly moisturizing your skin and if you have a low budget. The travel package is very practical with very thin but secured bag.
