I’ve never believed in brute force, so those face rollers and strap-in V-line makers are out of the question. I feel that they stretch your skin and make it lose its elasticity more than actually creating a V-line face.
Rather than use that, I’d recommend the Holika Holika Plumping Heart V Line Mask. This has got to be one of the best-kept secrets from Korea for those who want a sharper jawline and a V-line face. Of course, it’s also much cheaper than plastic surgery.
When I first discovered it and found out how well it worked, I couldn’t stop raving about it and called it my Va-jay-jay face mask. Of course, those who know their urban dictionary well should know that it’s so not what a va-jay-jay is.
Holika Holika Plumping Heart V Line Mask – KRW2,500
Application and Effects
It’s said to contain caffeine and capsicum to help “melt”fat and slim your face. It’s also made of some gel-like substance that adheres firmly to your (thoroughly-cleansed) face, so you don’t have to strap some tape or velcro strap around your head like you’re auditioning for the next installment of Saw.
The mask is gel-like, sufficiently sticky and not wet.
Note: Don’t leave it on for longer than 20 minutes or more than 2x a week – I find that it tends to lead to pimples in the next few days. Just leave it on for 10-15 minutes, after which it should start to naturally get looser and start dropping off. It’ll be good enough. For a more enjoyable experience, remove it once every 5 minutes, flap it gently around in the wind and stick it back on. It’ll feel so cold and awesome!
Back in 2010, I discovered this while on holiday in Korea and bought one piece to try. I used it just once, and found my jawline slimmer. After about 5-10 usages, I could proudly call my face a V-line face.
There used to be a Holika Holika at Wisma Atria Singapore, but it seems to have closed down. It was retailing for SGD5 or SGD5.50, and I was screaming bloody murder cos it was double what I’d paid for it in Korea. That was why I stocked up with about 80 pieces of this and haven’t had to buy any since 2010. But now that my stash is running low, it’s time to stock up!
