Asian beauty masks

Freshness and Hydratation

Lost in beauty masks translation

During my trip to Japan, beauty masks intrigued me, so I have decided to make a crash test of Asian beauty masks !

I take off the mask! You will see me in this article without makeup or artifice, or even retouching photoshop (although I never do I edit only the light of my photos) 😉

I have always loved to make masks of beauty, it relaxes and it’s a moment just to oneself where we do good 🙂

So I thought it might interest you to have a little analysis of the last masks that I could test. For some years now, we have been hearing more and more about Asian beauty products and their famous fabric masks, which can be found in both Japan and South Korea.
This article is a special Asian beauty masks 🙂
Korean versus Japanese !!

If you are “Lost in translation”, here is a little tutorial that can help you choose your next Asian beauty mask!

Mask N1 – TONYMOLY – Earth Beauty Bubble Sheet Mask  (6,99€ a mask) Korean

We hear a lot about charcoal masks, so I bought a Tony Moly mask from Sephora This foaming mask cleans, removes dead skin and helps regulate excess sebum. Its foam that forms instantly on contact with the air has a massaging and exfoliating effect thanks to the charcoal it contains.

How to use it?
Apply the mask on cleansed skin. Leave for 5 to 10 minutes then gently massage the face as soon as the foam appears. Remove the mask and rinse with clear water.

At first I found it funny because there were a lot of bubbles and after I started to pinball because there were really a lot of bubbles but this mask works, it is super efficient, your skin is radiant then!

Mask N2 – DR.JART+ – Rubber Mask Bright Solution  (10,99€ a mask) Korean

Sephora references a lot of DR.JART + masks.
The illuminating modeling mask is very fresh from application on the face.
In just 2 steps, get all the benefits of a modeling mask: 1st step, a hydrating ampoule-serum brings an intense illuminating effect, while the yellow wrapping mask of the 2nd stage prevents the active ingredients from evaporating and soothing the skin.

How to use it?
1. Apply the intensive ampoule-serum pack to the face, 2. Adjust the modeling mask and leave for 30 to 40 minutes. Remove the mask and gently tap until completely absorbed from the remaining contents of the ampoule.

I already know the brand and its classic fabric masks that are great. This one is my favorite! When you remove the mask, your skin is illuminated and radiant and I love its cold effect to the application, great during the heat of the last weeks 🙂 I recommend 100% against being delicate to the pose of the mask tissues / gel it tears easily so do not be in a hurry.

Mask N3 – MUJI – Sensitive skin sheet mask (23,31€ the 5 masks) – Japanese

Mask bought in Japan at Muji but also found in France.

It is perfect to go on a trip because its format is practical and each mask is individually wrapped, but in terms of properties it is nothing extraordinary, it is a fine fabric impregnated with a moisturizing lotion.

How to use it ?
Allow 10 minutes to moisturize the skin.

Mask N4 – LULULUN – Deep Moisturizing Face Mask (8,91€ the 7 masks) – Japanese

Japanese brand that you can buy in France on the site YesStyle.com

The LuLuLun face mask (blue) is made for dry skin. It is a best seller mask in Japan, it is designed to be used daily to deeply moisturize the skin. In the resealable bag you will find 7 masks.

The Lipidure Triple Concentration provides deep, long-lasting hydration, with effects that can last up to 141% longer than other LuLuLun foil masks. A powerful combination of Glucoside Glyceryl and Royal Jelly works to stimulate the circulation of Aquaporin-3 in cells (waterways in the epidermis), giving the skin a feeling of freshness and balance. Without artificial colors and mineral oils.

How to use it ?
With clean hands, remove the mask from the bag and apply it to the clean face. Leave for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the mask and tap the skin so that it absorbs the excess product from the mask.

This mask is moisturizing and relaxing.

Mask N5 – RIRE – “Bubble Bubble” Lip Mask (17,01€ the bottle) – Korean

Korean brand that you can buy in France on the site YesStyle.com

This mask moisturizes dry lips and eliminates dead cells, for a smooth and soft skin.

How to use it?
Apply the amount of product needed on dry lips. Let stand between 30 seconds and 1 minute until foam appears. Perform a gentle massage, then wipe with a tissue or rinse with water.

It is very surprising to have a product more and more on the lips but it is really effective. It removes all small skin and it moisturizes dry lips. More pleasant to use than a usual exfoliant.

Mask N6 – Lululun– Refreshing Clarity Face Mask (8,91€ the 7 masks) – Japanese

Japanese brand that you can buy in France on the site YesStyle.com

The LuLuLun face mask (white) is made to boost dull skin. It is a best-selling mask in Japan (like the blue seen above), it is designed to be used daily to restore radiance to the skin. In the resealable bag you will find 7 masks.

A selection of lightening vitamin C derivatives helps fight melanin formation and redness with anti-inflammatory properties, while herbal Geranium Rovertianum effectively blocks UV-induced wrinkles and discoloration. Plantago Seed and Mandarin Seed Extracts help neutralize yellow tones and improve reflectivity of light, leaving skin soft, smooth and regenerated with a revitalized luster. Without artificial colors and mineral oils.

How to use it ?
With clean hands, remove the mask from the bag and apply it to the clean face. Leave for 5 to 10 minutes. Remove the mask and tap the skin so that it absorbs the excess product from the mask.

This mask is a dose of light daily, it is not bad but I prefer that of Dr.Jart + that I find more pleasant on the skin and more “enlightening”.

Mask N7 – MUJI – Compressed tablets of masks in fabric (6,95€ the 20 tablets) Available in sachet of 5 and 20 tabletsJapanese

Tablets bought in Japan at Muji but also found in France.

Made from fine non-woven cotton particles. Fibers are assembled to obtain extra flat and absorbent cotton sheets. Use it in combination with your lotion or cream to moisturize, tone or clean the skin.

How to use it ?
Put a capsule in a small bowl. Add the lotion until the capsule takes on the shape of the mask. Unfold the mask before spreading it on the face. Leave for 5 to 10 minutes.

To better hydrate or treat your skin, my trick is to put on your face a gel mask (tube) like my Garancia “masked ball of the wizards” (hydrating & lifting), then to put the fabric mask, unfolded thanks to a mist or micellar water, so the product will penetrate better your skin. Leave for 5 to 10 minutes.
For a need for intense hydration, you can replace my Garancia gel with a coldcream 😉

I hope you enjoyed this little battle of Korean and Japanese masks, I would win the Korean masks and you?

For those who worried about my skin, it was not abused, all masks were made with at least 4 days apart!

Soon, I would make an addition with the feet mask that I have to test 😉
