Review – Lululun Plus Lavender Sheet Mask

Lululun Plus Lavender Sheet Mask

Lululun Plus’ Lavender Sheet Mask was next on my list to try. This sheet mask’s lavender scent is basically made to heal your soul (or so their website says…). It is made with Lavender from France that will moisturize your skin while you enjoy the wonderful scent.

My Experience

This is probably my favorite sheet mask from the Lululun Plus Aroma Oil series. The scent isn’t as overwhelming as the other ones and I feel like it definitely made my skin brighter as well! The only thing I really don’t like about the Lavender Sheet Mask, and all the aroma oil series masks, is the fact that it feels like it’s burning my skin. While wearing it I really worry if it will hurt my skin but upon taking it off there is no irritation. Considering the results the others have had I kept it on for the full 10 min but…. it can be a little uncomfortable.

Lululun Plus Lavender Sheet MaskAlso, for some reason the fit of this mask was a little better than the other ones. I’m not sure if it’s because I was able to put it on better or for some reason this one was a little smaller. It still crunched up at the bottom but it felt more comfortable than usual! I’ll apologize for my bad picture hehe.

While I’m not sure if I would use this mask for myself again, I think I would consider buying it for someone who loves aroma oil. It’s relaxing and smells nice and I think most people would really enjoy receiving this as a gift, especially if it’s a souvenir from Japan.

Where to Buy

You can buy these masks from Tokyuu Hands, Loft or Amazon Japan. Most local drug stores (in Japan) also have them available! Unfortunately, they aren’t easily found in the States yet…

Review – Lululun Plus Fresh Red Sheet Mask

Lululun Plus Fresh RedI’m finally half way through the box set of the Lululun Plus Sheet Mask series I bought in December! This time I tried out the Fresh Red Sheet mask and finally I found one I would definitely use again!

The Fresh Red Sheet mask is made with Acerola extract. Acerola is a super fruit that has 17 times more Vitamin C than lemons! And of course, the fruit is made in Japan just like the sheet mask itself! Now it’s not limited to this ingredient but also contains beta-caroteen, acai, and a lot of various vitamins that work great on the skin. For a weekly face mask I think it will definitely save the day (or week).

My Experience

It didn’t cause any irritation and my skin felt surprisingly refreshed after using it. Recently with the winter weather in Japan my skin is especially parched and needs a little extra moisture. The Fresh Red Sheet mask definitely hit it’s mark with that! This mask is also supposed to be effective in making supple skin. As far as what I can tell… one time might not do the trick for me. My skin was definitely softer after the first use but other than the feeling of refreshed and moisturized skin, I didn’t notice any apparent changes in the look.

Lululun Plus Fresh Red Sheet MaskWhen I talk about the size of the Lululun Plus series, I pretty much say the same thing. The Fresh Red Sheet mask and the other sheet masks in the series tend to run a bit big for my face. For the first time, I decided to post a picture using effects from the Snow App (sorry I’m a bit shy). Where I have the most awkward fit tends to be around the chin and eye areas. It definitely doesn’t wrap around my face well and jumbles up at the bottom. As for my eyes (made magically huge with the app picture) the mask is set for wider eyes and possible bigger heads? I have to place it carefully to make sure the moisturizer doesn’t get inside my eyes because it has happened before…

In conclusion, I am planning to buy this mask again and definitely want to give it as a present to my friends and family. I will be sad to part with this mask once I move back to the States.

Lululun Plus Clary Sage

Review – Lululun Plus Clary Sage Sheet Mask

Lululun Plus Clary SageI finally got a change to try out the Lululun Plus Clary Sage Sheet mask after a long streak of laziness… It’s been a while since I used a sheet mask and I’m pretty happy I chose this one to get back in the groove. This mask is made to help you feel refreshed after a long day (or a long few weeks in my case). With the spicy smell of Clary Sage and added benefits of lemon balm to help prevent skin aging it’s definitely a strong mask to try.

My Experience

I really enjoyed the smell of the Clary Sage Sheet Mask at first. It was really refreshing and relaxing at the same time. However… after a while I kind of felt like I just had a bunch of vegetables on my face. The smell was pretty overwhelming and with the added irritation the sheet mask brought it was kind of hard to keep the mask on for the full 10 min.

Of course, in my experience with the Lululun Sheet Masks I tend to feel a little sting while the mask is on however there is no sign of redness or irritation after taking it off. Considering the recommended time is 10 minutes I kept it on for that amount but I think 5 min for me is just enough. As far as the size goes, it’s no different than the other Lululun Plus series and is a little big for small faces.

In general, I feel like I’m not a bit Aroma Oil Mask fan and would prefer to use Lululun’s standard mask series. However, for friends or family that like Aroma Oil, I think this would be great as a gift.

If you can’t make it out to visit Japan you still can buy Lululun’s other sheet masks from Amazon which are just as good if not better (and much cheaper!)

Origins Plantscription Youth-Renewing Power Night Cream

Review – Origins Plantscription Youth Renewing Nightcream

Origins Plantscription Youth-Renewing Power Night CreamOrigins’ Plantscription™ Youth-renewing night cream is made to deliver youth-renewing hydration and improve the appearance of fine, dry lines. Of course, this is all done overnight and it has an oil blend of pink rose and mandarin orange to refresh the senses. While I only tried out the sample size, it lasted for about 2 weeks or more and considering it’s Origins I was excited to try it out.

My Experience

The consistency Origins’ Plantscription™ Youth-renewing night cream is great. I found it to be very relaxing and a good match with the aroma oils that are mixed it. It wasn’t overwhelming at all and didn’t create any kind of irritation with my face.

However, that’s about the only good thing I can say about this cream. To be honest, it didn’t mix well with other creams and is best used alone. When used with other creams I tend to find my face to be a lot more oily in the morning or have a weird white residue form prior to sleeping. Even when I used the minimal amount I would have some kind of residue when mixed with other creams. I personally didn’t notice any improvements with the appearance of my skin but increased oiliness.

The description of Origins’ Plantscription™ Youth-renewing night cream says it’s okay for oily and combination skin but prior to purchasing I would recommend trying a sample size first. The full size is around $60 and it’s a lot to use to make your skin more oily!
