SKINCARE: Japan's Lululun Sheet Mask

by - Friday, August 19, 2016

Note: Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I've written a blog draft before this but I'm quite hesitant to post it since it's actually a tech post and I'm totes not sure if you, beauty readers, approve it! Haha

Anyhoo, If there's one obvious difference about Japanese skincare and makeup versus Manila's, it's gonna be Japan's overflowing love for anything moisturizing!!!

It's actually a little challenging to look for matte foundations and matte lipsticks as most of the makeup sold here lean on the moisturizing side.

Japanese women are not fond of matte lipsticks either! It's so natural to see Japanese women with lustrous lipsticks or women who top their lipstick with glosses for a more shiny finish.

I'm acidic and oily, so any moisturizing/dewy base will always be hard to maintain for me. But not with skincare! Uhuh, and yes, I'm starting to love anything moisturizing as of lately. I find that my oily skin becomes more oily when it's dehydrated.

I've been using Lululun 7-day Sheet Mask Pack in White lately. In Japan, sheet masks usually come in huge sets (7 days, 1 month, 10pcs, etc). You can still go for single sheets too, most of them are made in Korea though.

Lululun 7-day Sheet Mask is available in 3 different variants. While they have different chief ingredients, each of them is highly moisturizing. Thanks to Hyaluronic Acid!

Pink - Balance Moisture type (good for all seasons; with 8 moisturizing extracts/ingredients some of which are aloe vera, honey, ginseng, avocado, and hyaluronic acid, etc)

Blue - Motchiri type (I know it's purple but it's tagged as 'Ao' which means 'Blue' in Japanese, so let's keep it that way. Motchiri means thicker and stickier like a "mochi". Like the other two this type has Hyaluronic acid but has more richer and heavier components for more moisture)

White - Refreshing Clarity type (this one has Yoshino Cherry Tree Leaf Extract, Primrose seed, Prune, Kiwi extract, Orange Peel extract. The Vitamin C and Pro-vitamin B5 help in keeping the skin clear and hydrated.)

Here are the last two sheets I'm left with. I've been using harsh and drying acne skincare lately and this mask helps counter the dryness by locking in moisture. I can't vouch for 'clarity' just yet, but I guarantee that this mask definitely preps your skin for a good base.

I usually put this on before bedtime for 15-25 minutes. I want to make the most out of every drop of the excess serum so I usually remove the mask when I feel like the sheet has totally dried out. Then I let my skin breathe and absorb.

The next day, I find that my makeup glides on smoothly and quickly during application. Dry patches are also diminished.

Overall, this is a good buy that doesn't break the bank. It's pretty cheap and you already get 7 sheet masks for 1-week use. I would totally repurchase!

If you ever drop by Japan, this is readily available at any drugstore. You can also purchase also through some Instagram resellers.
