Face packs transform you into Star Wars’ heroes and villains, are just the thing to re-moisturize if your skin is dry from too much time on Tatooine.
With The Last Jedi now playing, hard-core Star Wars fans have a fresh excuse to engage in a little cosplay as they head out to the theaters to see the latest installment in the franchise, But what if you’re a fan, but not a fanatic? Maybe you’d like to dress up as a character from the series too, but you feel a little too embarrassed to do it in public.
You could cosplay at home, but while that saves you from having to feel self-conscious, it can also feel kind of pointless since no one will see you. So the ideal solution is a way to dress up as a Star Wars icon in a way that provides some benefit other than attention, like with these skincare masks from Japanese beauty products maker Isshindo Honpo.
The Tokyo-based company previously offered Attack on Titan masks (which we tried out for ourselves), and is now releasing five different Star Wars designs. Three of them, Darth Vader, Darth Maul, and the Imperial Stormtrooper, are allied with the Dark Side of the Force, perhaps because Sith Lords, as portrayed in the films, consistently have pretty awful complexions, and could really use the cleansing, beautifying effects of the hydrolyzed collagen, vitamin C solution, and sodium hyaluronate the masks are treated with.
Conversely, if you’re a fan of Star Wars’ good guys, there are also C-3PO and Chewbacca masks.
▼ Although since droids don’t have skin and Wookies’ faces are completely covered by their hair/fur, we’re not sure either one of these characters would ever need to use the masks themselves.
The masks are available at Isshindo Honpo’s Tokyo sociality shopes as well as at novelty retailers. Priced at 430 yen (US$3.80) each, they make great souvenirs, although if you’re planning to give them as Christmas presents you’ll need to wake up early on Christmas morning, since they go on sale December 25.
