Lululun Plus Sweet Drop Sheet Mask

Review – Lululun Plus Sweet Drop Sheet Mask

Lululun Plus Sweet Drop Sheet MaskThe first thing you see when you open the advertisement page for the Lululun Plus Sweet Drop sheet mask is 「とろ~りパワーで愛され肌へ」 (torori pawa- de aisare hada he). “Torori” in Japanese is basically thick or creamy so with the power of this creamy sheet mask, you will be closer to skin that you love! The main ingredient of this mask is Manuka Honey but it also includes Apricot Seed Oil Extract and Avocado. All great ingredients to moisture and protect your skin from drying out.

My Experience

So far, with a total of 2 more to try, the Lululun Plus Sweet Drop Sheet mask is my favorite of the Lululun Plus sheet mask series! It’s just above the Lululun Plus Smooth Gold and Fresh Red Sheet Masks. Upon opening the package I instantly noticed how creamy this mask is compared to the other in the series. It also has minimal amount of smell and I was really excited to try it out. With the cream actually dripping off the sheet mask, I managed to apply it to my face and almost instantly felt the moisturizer seeping into my skin. Considering the weather right now is cold in Japan…. The sheet mask also happened to be a little cold and felt pretty refreshing on top of moisturizing!

Lululun Plus Sweet Drop Sheet MaskAfter about 5 minutes I was expecting to feel some sort of tingling or irritation as with the other Lululun Plus Sheet Mask series but I felt nothing! Surprisingly it really was just like adding an extra powerful moisturizer before sleeping. The Lululun Plus Sweet Drop Sheet Mask felt so good that I didn’t even bother adding extra moisturizer after. I just used the extra amount from the package to cover my neck and was all done for the night, no irritation included! I even had a little encouragement from Doraemon~ while waiting the 10 minutes.

The only bad thing is…. the size is still really big! It always jumbles up at some part of my face. To be honest, I felt this mask to be especially unfit because of the extra creamy moisturizer that it contained. At some points I thought it would slid off my face!

In conclusion, The Lululun Plus Sweet Drop Sheet Mask is a must try if you get the chance to visit Japan. It’s not only moisturizing but very refreshing and feels great on the skin. It’s a great souvenir not only to take home for yourself but also to give away to fellow skin care addicts.

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.

Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Masque

Review – Kiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque

Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing MasqueKiehl’s Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque is one of my favorite Kiehl’s products. Kiehl’s is one of my favorite skin care brands from the United States! The company itself is over 165 years old so I would hope they know their stuff. Their products use many natural ingredients like Lavender, Squalane, Calendula, Caffeine and Vitamin C among others. They have a wide variety of products for all types of skin and even have a Men’s skin care line (which my husband loves).

Their Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque is:

  • Formulated with Amazonian White Clay to gently draw out oil, dirt and toxins that clog pores
  • The addition of Oatmeal and Aloe Vera helps to soothe

The overall rating on the Kiehl’s website is almost 5 hearts out of 5 with over 151 reviews. The cost is only $28 for 5 oz of mask. For me this is a pretty good deal, it’s lasted me for a few months already.

My Experience

This masque can last a long time if you use it sparingly. It’s very tempting to put a lot of the masque cream on your face at once but you really only need a little in order to cover your face completely. It takes about 15 min to dry or longer depending on how much you put on. Once it fully dries I found it very easy to wash off (in the shower) but it can get a bit messy if you’re not careful.

I found the masque to sting my face a little upon application but after removal my face was refreshed and looked nice and bright. My pores are also visibly reduced after one application which is great! I think it’s a great item to add to your skin care routine and considering the value I would definitely purchase it again.

Where to Purchase

Like all Kiehl’s products their main website or stores are great places to purchase or try out the products. Their rewards program is definitely worth joining if you’re a fan of Kiehl’s!

On the other hand, if you’re more of a Bloomingdale’s person, they also have this  Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Mask along with a wide range of Kiehl’s products.
