Lululun 7 Days Brightening Mask Review:
When I visited Japan late last year, I grabbed the opportunity to stock up on beauty products like sheet masks and make-up products. One of the products I grabbed was the 7-day Lululun Masks (in white). It was highly praised in Japan, so I thought it was worth a try.
+ The 7-day Lululun Masks line comes in different versions (and colors), each claiming to have different effects on one’s skin.
+ They all claim to fit easily and perfectly on Asian-sized faces too.
+ The white one, the one I have tried, mainly claims to brighten up your skin.
+ It also claims to smoothen your skin’s texture, while giving it a radiant glow after using it religiously (for 7 days).

How to use:
1. Just like your usual sheet masks, you just have to put this after you’ve cleansed your skin and before your last step (which is moisturizing).
2. The suggested time is to put it on for 15-20 minutes.
What I usually do though is wait for the essence on the sheet mask to dry, which usually takes up to 25-30 minutes, before removing it. Then I will pat the leftover essence until my skin soaks it up. I feel like the mask would work effectively that way.
My Skin Type: Transitioned from oily skin to dry and sensitive skin.
Lululun 7 Days Brightening Mask (White) Review:
As I have said above, I got the Lululun 7 Days mask (in white) towards the end of last year (2016) from Japan, but I was only able to use them by Feb 2017. I used the masks religiously for 7 days. Every night before I go to sleep, I would put it on for 25-30 minutes, or until I feel like the essence on the mask is drying up already.
The sheet mask is more on the thicker size, and it feels like cloth, which I find okay; I do not like it, but I can live with it.
The mask doesn’t have a lot of essence, it is slightly watery compared to the others which I don’t like. It doesn’t smell like chemical though, which is a good thing about this mask.
Each morning until the 8th day (the day after the 7th night), I would check if the mask did brighten up my skin, but it did not. The masks made my skin feel moisturized, smooth and supple, but there weren’t any changes to my skin’s color or brightness. None at all.
I do not know why it claims to brighten up the skin, when it really doesn’t do any brightening at all.
I would give this product a 3.5/5. I was not fully disappointed with this product, since it made my skin feel moisturized, smooth and supple. I guess their claims of repairing and moisturizing your skin were true, but if you are looking for a mask that would brighten up your skin, then this is NOT for you.
Would I repurchase? No. Like I said, it does make my skin’s texture better, but it didn’t brighten my skin up, which was the main reason why I purchased this mask. Also, there are other masks that can do better with better prices.
