Easter may be over but that doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy these egg themed Holika Holika Gudetama Lazy & Easy sheet masks. Ok, so I don’t exactly need any encouragement when trying new sheet masks but these are just too cute. What do you think?
If you don’t already know, Gudetama is a Japanese egg character from Sanrio. I couldn’t have been more excited to use such adorable sheet masks. Here’s how I got on…
Gudetama Lazy & Easy Facial Sheet Mask, Holika Holika at TK Maxx, £1.99
First of all, I LOVE the cute packaging! The mask itself features a Gudetama print.
I was a bit disappointed with this mask because the material was thicker than other sheet masks I’ve used (and I’ve tried A LOT), which made it feel very hard on my face. I also found the mask difficult to adhere to my skin, particularly around my chin.
Ingredients include egg yolk (rich in vitamin A to help hydrate skin), albumen (egg whites) to help tighten pores and aloe to moisturise skin.
Despite the odd fit of this sheet mask, my skin looked noticeably brighter and fresher. I wasn’t keen on the egg smell though, it made me feel a bit nauseous!

This two-step sheet mask was a novelty for me because I’ve never used anything like this before. I usually avoid cleansing tissues because I don’t find them very effective at removing my make-up and cleaning my skin but as any beauty junkie will know, sometimes it’s fun to try different things. Particularly when they look this cute. Right?
Step one is a cleansing tissue which aims to thoroughly cleanse skin and remove make-up. Although I’m not a fan of cleansing wipes/tissues, this was surprisingly good to use for a double cleanse (I used my regular DHC Deep Cleansing Oil first to really make sure my skin was really clean).
I couldn’t use it to remove my stubborn mascara as the fibres from the cloth kept sticking to my eyelashes (never before has there been a more appropriate time for a Lucy Watson eye roll).
However, my skin felt very soft after using this. It felt smooth and ready for the next step.
Step two is a sheet mask that tackles dry skin with its moisturising ingredients (including my all-time favourite niacinamide to brighten, soothing honey and moisture-boosting sodium hyaluronate).
Considering I have a high food intolerance to eggs, I was initially worried my skin would freak out with the extracts of egg yolk and albumen but fortunately, my skin was ok. Which is weird because if I eat eggs I end up with a rash on my face…
After 20 minutes, my skin looked instantly brighter and cleaner. It was super soft too. I loved using this but the egg smell was a little overpowering.
Overall, I’m not sure if I’d buy these masks again. My skin looked lovely after using both of them but the smell was too much for me!
