{Review} Daiso Sheet Face Masks

Daiso is a great place for cute Japanese items and they even have beauty products. Everything is $1.50 unless otherwise marked. At least, that's how it is for me in the San Francisco Bay Area.

BB Face Mask with Collagen/with Hyaluronic Acid

Price - This comes in a 2-pack, all for $1.50: basically 75¢ per mask. To clarify, it's not a variety pack. It's a 2-pack of the Collagen type or the 2-pack of the Hyaluronic Acid type.

Review - It's by far the prettiest packaging of the other Daiso masks I've seen, but that has nothing to do with the actual product.

Treatment - I'm not quite sure what it means by BB, but I can try to explain the Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid. I'm no expert, but I'll explain what I think from my research. Our skin contains Collagen and that breaks down over time. The thinking is that if we add collagen over our skin, it will help repair the existing Collagen. says that Collagen applied over the skin won't actually work because it cannot penetrate the skin. It would only just cover wrinkles and moisturize. Hyaluronic Acid can hold a lot of moisture, hundreds times it's weight, so it's great for moisturizing the surface of your skin. If used in a dry climate, it may actually pull moisture from your skin instead of the air.

Coenzyme Q10

Price - This comes in a 3-pack, all for $1.50: basically 50¢ per mask.

Review - It contains plenty of liquid product. It was cooling at first, but only because my body temperature is warmer than the sheet. It definitely warmed up after a couple of minutes. I had no additional feelings during application. After removal, directions say to pat the extra product on my face. It left my face feeling sticky, but soft and moisturized.

Treatment - I can't really say much about the Coenzyme Q10 treatment it is supposed to give since it was only one application. The package recommends application 2 to 3 times a week. I'm no expert, but from what I understand, Coenzyme Q10 is already in our bodies. It plays a role in producing energy and it is an antioxidant. Theoretically, it should help the skin repair itself and reduce damage caused by free radicals, however there is not enough research to prove this and it's possible that the amount of Coenzyme Q10 in most beauty products isn't enough to make a difference. I highly doubt that this cheaper product I think has a good description of Coenzyme Q10 for skin products.

Honey and Pearl Pure Moisture

Price - These separately come in a 3 pack for $1.50 as well. 50¢ is such a great deal! It's still the best price I've come across so far. And just to clarify, it does not come in a variety pack, it's 3 honey or 3 pearl.

Review - Face did feel quite moisturized. I didn't smell anything for the pearl type, but the honey one was really overwhelming. It didn't quite smell good which did not make an enjoyable experience.

Treatment - The aim is to moisturize your face and it did just that.

I would recommend all of these products. I wouldn't depend on these for the Collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, and Coenzyme Q10 treatments as I can't really say these work. I don't really think that they will. Especially be careful with the Hyaluronic Acid type if you're in a dry climate though. I would just use these to occasionally pamper my skin for the moisturizing effect.  I'm just a girl with a taste for variety, so I decided to try many different kinds. I would go for these face masks, just for the moisturizing effect, just don't get the honey one!

With Daiso's low prices, I was very willing to try these all out spending $9 for 16 single masks (6 different types of masks).

Daiso also sells the sheets, so that you can make your own masks. I've never tried it before, but I've seen a few tutorials here and there on other blogs and youtube. Have you ever tried making your own mask before?

  1. Hi there!!
    I have the collagen one on my face right now and found your blog.
    It's really cold where I am so it's really cooling. You're right about then just being good for moisture/pampering, but for such a cheap price they're really good!! ^__^
    Check out my blog if you like. xx
