I’ve never tried a sheet mask before. I’m not sure why. I think maybe it’s because you only get one use per mask, which seemed to be a costly, despite most actually being very affordable! So I was really excited to get the opportunity to try the Lovely Your Skin Face Mask* face mask. In this Japanese face mask review you’ll find out how I got on with them. I certainly change my opinion of how affordable this way of doing a face mask actually is!

General thoughts on the Lovely Your Skin Face Mask
I had some general thoughts on the Lovely Your Skin Face Masks. I’m not sure whether these are generic across all sheet masks, as I’ve nothing to compare them to so please bare that in mind as you read my Japanese Face Mask Review.
I’ve really come around to the idea of having a one time face mask. There are some definite benefits, like going on holiday. Taking all of your facial skincare products is not fun, particularly if weight is going to one an issue. A sheet face mask is light, thin & you only need one per week of your trip. Plus, you won’t have to bring it back again as you just throw it away after use
One thing that does concern me is the waste involved & what that means for the planet. The Lovely Your Skin Face Masks themselves are made from cotton, so there should be very little impact on the environment from them, but the packaging they come in concerns me. But, does the amount of waste produced by the sheet mask packages equal the equivalent number of uses from the packaging in a multi-use face mask? This is just me thinking out loud. I don’t know the answer, but it’s something to consider.
When I took my first Lovely Your Skin Face Mask out of it’s packaging, I pulled a visible face. Slimy is the only way I can describe how it felt & I turned my nose up at it. I found the mask hard to wear. I don’t like things near my eyes, but the eye holes in the mask were so close to my eyes that, if I’m honest, it made me a little panicked. Find out if this was worth it, below.
I thought I’d talk to you about each Lovely Your Skin Face Mask I got to try for my Japanese Face Mask Review, as they each gave different results. As a reference point, I have dry, eczema prone skin. I also have a lot of allergies.
The Green Tea Korean face mask is described as being “great for firming, moisturising and healthy skin.” This was the face mask that I got on with the best. I was pleasantly surprised by the smell, I was expecting tea, but it was actually a lovely, sweet scent. The Green Tea face mask left my skin feeling soft, smooth, firm & healthier than it had in a long time. I was blown away by how much better my skin looked too. It was glowing. I will definitely be buying this face mask in the future. I know applying it wasn’t a great experience, but the results were totally worth it.
The Ceramide Korean face mask is described as being “Good for skin nutrition, moisturising and softening.” I had a little more problem with applying the Ceramide face mask. I found that the ‘slime’ dripped off the mask. I ended up with it on my lips (thankfully it didn’t taste bad), on my bed. The dripping onto my lips & ending up in my mouth, along with the panic of having something too close to my eyes meant that I was only able to keep the face mask on for 10 minutes (instead of 20-30mins). Because of this, I don’t feel I got all the benefits of the mask. Saying that, the results were nice. Not as good as the Green Tea, but still worth doing.
The Retinol Korean face mask is described as being “Great for skin health and moisturising.” This face mask was nice. It was probably the easiest for me to apply, which is likely because I was starting to get used to sheet face masks. I still felt uncomfortable with the mask so close to my eyes, but that’s the shape & size of the eye holes. The results I got from the Retinol mask were similar to those of the Ceramide mask.
I was really impressed with the Green Tea Lovely Your Skin Face Mask. I liked the Ceramide & Retinol face masks. It’s possible I would have ordered more of these two masks had I not tried the Green Tea, but this one blew me away. For me, it’s Green Tea all the way!
There are 12 different masks tin the Lovely Your Skin Face Mask range on bbeautylimited.com, as well as additional masks available from another brand popular in Japan & Korea. Each of which can be purchased for just £2.49.
