[muju] Sweet Animal Mask- Unicorn and Zebra Review

IMG_4509.jpg

 

I like trying new things. Especially things that are fun or cute, or both. And the muju Sweet Animal Masks seemed so cute and fun to use that I had to try them (although the Unicorn one was rather creepy than cute- the packaging was cute but the mask itself made me look quite… scary). I got those two masks from my mom in Poland (hence Polish print on both of them) but they were made in South Korea and so as a k-beauty addict I feel I have a duty to say what I think about them. And so here’s the review.

 

muju Sweet Animal Mask- Unicorn

First, in order, comes the muju Sweet Animal Unicorn sheet mask. In terms of what it is designed to do, its packaging says, quite appealingly I must admit (I really liked how the brand described both masks in such a smooth way; comments in the square brackets mine):

When your skin is dry, matt, and you wish you could shine [oh, yes, baby, bring it on], it’s time to meet our Unicorn. This sweet animal contains ingredients that help to moisturize, brighten and smooth the skin.

Carrot Root- repairs, smooths and moisturizes the skin, protects and facilitates tanning.

Panthenol- regenerates and smooths the skin.

Star Anise- has purifying, depigmenting and anti-irritant effect.

Thanks to the printed sheet, the mask is more efficient and fun.

 

Ingredients: Water, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Daucus Carota Sativa (Carrot) Root Extract, Panthenol, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Erythritol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Allantoin, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Hydroxyacetophenone, Xanthan Gum, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Parfum (Fragrance), PEG-14M, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Natto Gum, Disodium EDTA

After a long and productive day at work, I wanted to shine. So bad. So I put a Unicorn Mask on my face (sometimes I wonder how far I can go to enhance my skin) and became a unicorn for 15 minutes. The muju sheet mask was well-soaked in the serum (although there wasn’t much of it left in the packaging)… and was huuuge. As you can see in the picture above, the upper part of it was sticking out well beyond my forehead. However, although big, the size did bring the mask to life more than if it’d been smaller as the unicorn horn looked as if it’d been coming out of my forehead. And the sheet mask adhered surprisingly well to my skin as well. Not to mention the fun the print brought me when I was putting it on my face and then while I was taking sweet, sweet selfies.

In terms of the ingredients, most of them are clean. There are only a few which had a yellow CosDna safety rating (PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Tocopheryl Acetate, Parfum (Fragrance), PEG-14M, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil). And the staple ingredients were right at the beginning of the ingredients list making me hope there was a considerable amount of them as opposed to other ingredients.

The effects? My skin did look slightly brighter and definitely less dull. It was well-hydrated and moisturized (I should start distinguishing those two, honestly) but despite that I still put a layer of my moisturizer on top of that to finish off the whole routine. The sheet mask left only a slightly tacky feeling (nothing bothersome) and brought some healthy look to my skin.

I really liked it, although I looked..creepy.

 

 

muju Sweet Animal Mask- Zebra

After trying the muju Unicorn mask, the next evening I tried the Zebra one. This is what its packaging had to say about its main purpose:

When you notice first wrinkles and fine lines [mine have been with me for a while now T^T] or that your skin loses its elasticity [welcome to my world, luv], it’s time to meet out Zebra. This sweet animal contains ingredients that help to plump out wrinkles and to add back firmness and smoothness.

Fig Extract- has firming, moisturizing, and anti-aging properties and stimulates the collagen synthesis.

Collagen- helps to add back moisture, smoothness and elasticity.

Witch Hazel Water- regenerates the skin, improves blood circulation and has anti-aging effect on the skin.

Thanks to the printed sheet, the mask is more efficient and fun.

 

Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, 1,2-Hexanediol, Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Panthenol, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel Water), Allantoin, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Xanthan Gum, Hydroxyacetophenone, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Hydroxyethylcellulose, PEG-14M, Natto Gum, Erythritol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Disodium EDTA, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Parfum (Fragrance), Benzyl Alcohol, Limonene, Hexyl Cinnamal

To be completely honest, this sheet mask had a much worse ingredients list than the Unicorn one as there were more yellow-rated ingredients. However, I enjoyed muju Sweet Animal Mask Zebra more than the Unicorn one. Why? There are two reasons. First, I didn’t look creepy but actually quite cute (wouldn’t you agree?). Second, to my eyes, it gave out much better effects. My skin was as well-hydrated and moisturized as with the Unicorns sheet mask but somehow it looked better (healthier, more even toned, plumper) after I took off. Which makes me wonder- was it the result of the Fig Extract that was fourth on the list (praying here that there was a considerable amount of it in the essence and that it wasn’t just a marketing trick)? If so, then the Fig Extract becomes my number one skincare ingredient from now on. ❤

 

 

I’m looking forward to trying more of such funny/cute/creepy looking sheet masks. If you have any ideas what sheet masks I should try next, let me know in the comments!
