One popular sheet mask you’ll definitely see in Japan is LuLuLun (ルルルン). Recently I’ve been using their Precious sheet masks and bought them (on Yahoo Shopping with T-Points) simply because I didn’t know much about this series and the difference between the three colors. Here’s my review of the LuLuLun Precious White, Red, and Green sheet masks

The Precious WHITE and RED debut in September 2017, while GREEN came out in September 2018.
Made from 3 layers and averaging 120 % thicker than LuLuLun’s standard Blue, White, and Red series, the Precious sheet masks are intended for “mature” skin ( エイジングケアマスク | aging care masks). The recommended time when masking is 10 minutes.
Even the packaging itself has also been toned down from the pastel pink, iridescent blue, and creamy white of its original sheet masks. Gone are the tiara-like emblem and voluminous lashes. Instead, the Precious packaging features bold tones of ruby red, white gold, and emerald green and a fancy geometric pattern.
All sheet masks in the LuLuLun Precious lineup are made in Japan, and free of alcohol, mineral oil, artificial fragrances, and colors.
LuLuLun Precious WHITE
The WHITE sheet masks contains 2 types of hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and vitamin E to promote firm and elastic young-looking skin with a healthy glow. It’s also dripping in essence. How much? you ask. 127% more essence compared to other LuLuLun sheet masks! Other ingredients include avocado oil, apricot oil, dragon fruit extract, and carnosine, an antioxidant that rejuvenates the skin.
The RED series is all about combating fine lines and wrinkles by adding intensive moisture to the skin. This is done by using a staple in Japanese culture and cuisine- RICE! The essence contains no less than 4 different kinds of ingredients derived from rice to add intense moisture.

Available on Amazon
Introduced one year after WHITE and RED, Precious GREEN is all about rejuvenating the skin. How does it do this? By using L22, a patented, botanically-sourced compound created to simulate a healthy 22-year-old’s skin lipids. Other ingredients are glucooligosaccharide and hatomugi extract to soothe troubled skin.
To be perfectly honest, I don’t see immediate results once I’m done masking, which is disappointing. However, changes are very visible in the morning (at least in my case). Especially after using the RED sheets, my makeup doesn’t sink into the smile lines around my mouth and the fine lines on my forehead.
Because there’s 7 sheet masks in a pack, I rotate these masks throughout the week: RED the night before if I’ll be wearing full makeup the next day; WHITE when I’m tired; and GREEN on the weekend.
I’d love to try more LuLuLun sheet masks, either the individually wrapped ones or the 7 sheet pack. I already bought the limited edition spring 2019 cherry blossom one, but I have my eye on the One Night series, as well as the herb series. We’ll see which one makes it to the blog first!
