Lu Lu Lun Sheet Masks Review

Lu Lu Lun Sheet Masks Review

I have all too quickly become a little obsessed and dare I say dependant on sheet masks, as such I do feel that over the last four months I have discovered what works and what doesn't. I should also hastily add that a lot like fragrance, skincare is entirely subjective - what works for me, may not for you and so on. However every now and then there is a product that under-performs so terribly, that you will struggle to see how it can be beneficial to anyone, enter Lu Lu Lun Sheet Masks.

Lu Lu Lun Sheet Masks Review

While reading up on sheet masks, I constantly stumbled upon listings and reams of positive reviews of the Lu Lu Lun Sheet Masks and hastily clicked order. Apparently Lu Lu Lun Sheet Masks are the best selling masks in Japan; how true that is I do not know but as they are affordable and readily available within Japan (they are a Japanese brand after all) I won't dispute this. Along with such claim, I was also sold on the fact that the Lu Lu Lun Masks are not individually wrapped, rather they come in packs of 7, 14, 31 and 42 - great for travel and of course popping on my bedside table. As you may know, ideally (or so brands state) you should use a sheet mask every night, the pre-packed sheet masks offer an affordable and convenient way to do so. That my friends, is where the praise ends.

There are numerous version of Lu Lu Lun Masks to choose from, all aimed at various needs and concerns; I purchased three of the more well known variants (Rich Moisture (Blue), Moisture (Pink) and Brightening (Silver) but truthfully I could not differentiate between the three in a blind test - all three sets delivered the same results...well if you could call it that.

You see, as the Lu Lu Lun Masks are not individually packed, there is of course less serum on each mask (weirdly the middle masks were the more moist of the pack) - in comparison to a individual sheet mask they feel dry and dare I say, not as luxurious. I also found that the Lu Lu Lun Masks are poorly cut and shaped - the eye holes are very small yet the mouth area is huge, this could of course be a personal issue and due to my face shape? One thing I can not blame my moon face for is the fact that once on the skin, no matter the variety the Lu Lu Lun mask dries out almost immediately. There is no cooling sensation, no brightening or soothing effect, nor instant hit of moisture, rather it almost feels like I have slapped a facial wipe on my face and called it a day. For the record, I did try all three versions of the Lu Lu Lun Masks and for the recommended seven consecutive days as suggested, and nothing improved nor happened if I am entirely honest. Perhaps I should be grateful that they did not break me out like others have in the past.

Cheap and cheerful sheet masks are plentiful, and as such I would recommend that you don't was yet your time nor money on the above.

  1. Such a shame these didn't work for you! I've tried a few sheet masks from Japan and other Asian countries and found the shape of them really hard to get use to! X

  2. My Japanese actually told me to stay away from these because they're all marketing and little effect lol. You should try Kracie's mask instead, they work wonder!

  3. That's a shame - Lululun make my favourite sheet masks! I buy the Precious White range in the gold bag with a slight hexagonal pattern on it. Mine have always been saturated with product down to the last mask - it's strange that your packets sounded like they had dried out quite a bit - perhaps they were old stock?
    I find the masks have a very good plumping effect on the skin.
    They are readily available in Japan - I purchased mine from the @cosme store but I also saw them several other stores.
    My packet of 7 costs ¥400 (£2.20) but I have another unopened bag of 7 from a different brand that was only ¥330 (£1.80). The bigger package of 32 masks works out cheaper (26p a mask versus 32p a mask if you purchase the bag of 7) however I don't use them every night so the smaller packets work out better for me. I have tried a couple of other brands but my favourite is still the Lululun Precious White (in the gold bag) :-)

  5. Such a shame they didn't work out for you. I've been on the look out for a sheet mask to try as my first, but I think I will avoid these! Thanks for such an honest review.

  7. That's annoying because they look so cute too and would definitely be ideal for travelling. You'll have to share with us your favourite sheet masks x

  8. So many brands come up with sheet masks so it is hard to find one that would actually work. Multipack masks might be tempting but definitely something I won't be trying out. Sephora ones aren't that bad!

  9. That's too bad these didn't work! So strange that they chose to pack multiple masks in together.

  11. I've heard of these masks before and I think the fact that they are "bestselling" sheet masks in Japan is probably because they are so cheap. Paired with marketing I'm sure every Japanese schoolgirl has tried them at least once! :D
