7 Pro Tips I Learned from Dr. Chun Hsu Jou of Dr. Morita Sheet Masks

I have to admit that I have a slight obsession with sheet masks. I have an entire drawer just for these pretty little things. (You should see it at home, it’s kinda crazy.) When I'm not doing momma duties or blogging and working on a deadline, my downtime is spent watching Netflix with a face mask on. Sheet masks are skincare must-haves for slackers like me, so it's no wonder Dr. Morita Grand Press Launch is one of my favorite must-not-be-missed events.


I recently sat down with my favorite beauty bloggers at the product launch last September 27th at Shangri-La at the Fort, where the CEO and R&D Head Dr. Chun Hsu Jou, introduced the Dr. Morita sheet masks to us himself, discussed a few skincare tips, and divulged his secrets in achieving beautiful skin (spoiler: it involves a LOT of Dr. Morita sheet masks).

 Here are a few photo highlights at the event:

So here's a little bit about Dr. Morita sheet masks...

It's the no. 1 best-selling sheet masks in Taiwan and Hong Kong! Known for making affordable yet top-quality skin care products, Dr. Morita has been recognized many times over. Aside from rave reviews from the media, it was also selected as the official facial sheet mask in the 2014 Miss Hong Kong pageant. Their best-selling Hyaluronic Acid Essence Mask has also recently won the Silver Award from Monde Selection, an independent consumer product evaluating body.

Dr. Morita is one brand under the umbrella of Dr. Jou Biotech headquartered in Taiwan. It has offices in Japan, Shanghai, and Hong Kong, with products available in Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, and now, the Philippines! Partnering with Gentro International Products, Inc., Dr. Morita sheet masks are now widely accessible locally via Watsons and SM Beauty branches.

There are six (6) variants to enjoy:

Award-winning and best-selling, Dr. Morita Hyaluronic Acid Essence Mask ensures lasting moisture is delivered to the skin with Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen imported from Japan. Apart from hydrating the skin with three different sizes of Hyaluronic Acid molecules, it also soothes and promotes skin repair with Cucumber Extract, Marine Collagen, Ceramide, and Niacinamide. This makes a great anti-aging option for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin.


Dr. Morita Intense Hydrating Serum Facial Mask sustains long-lasting skin moisturization afforded by Japanese Hyaluronic Acid and Amino Acids. Hydration is delivered efficiently to the different layers of the skin thanks to large, medium, and small Hyaluronic Acid molecules. This makes sure even dry skin types get the moisture it needs for a longer time.  It also contains skin-caring Niacinamide, Allantoin, Squalane, and Ceramides.

Its large, medium, and small Hyaluronic Acid molecules deliver lasting hydration to all layers of the skin. It’s also a great anti-aging and brightening treat for your skin. Among its 11 Amino Acids are Arginine, which brightens skin by repairing visible skin damage, and Glycine and Proline which help smooth fine lines and wrinkles.


Dr. Morita Whitening & Moisturizing Essence Facial Mask makes it possible to whiten your skin without drying it out! Hydrating Japanese Hyaluronic Acid combines with Mandelic Acid from Merck Germany, one of the leading pharmaceutical groups in worldwide. Mandelic Acid is one of the gentler Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) around, making it a great option for easily sensitized skin. This also contains various plant, flower, and root extracts to soothe, hydrate, and brighten skin.

Looking for something new? Try Dr. Morita Platinum Colloid & Hematite Extraction Whitening Black Facial Mask. Japanese Tranexamic Acid and multiple herb extracts whiten while Hyaluronic Acid gives deep hydration. Treat your skin to Iron-rich Hematite and Obsidian Extracts, known to have toning, regenerating, and strengthening properties. Antioxidant-rich Platinum Colloid helps your skin fight aging.

Hyaluronic Acid hydrates while Platinum Colloid’s antioxidant content prevents skin from premature aging. Black Pearl Extract has been part of ancient Chinese medicine and skin care for good reason: calcium-rich pearl powder has been known to help detoxify, promote cell renewal, and enhance skin elasticity. Care for your skin while getting whitening benefits from Tranexamic Acid and multiple herb extracts.

Here are some of the things I learned from Dr. Chun Hsu Jou:

●    Cleanse your face. Apply mask on the face and leave it for 10-15 minutes. Remove and gently massage around the face area for the essence to be fully absorbed by the skin. No need to rinse off.

●    Dr. Chun Hsu Jou, third generation of the brand’s founding family shares that their sheet masks already have toner, lotion, and serum. Those with dry skin may apply moisturizing serum or cream, if so desired. Hurray for one-step skin care!

●    It's best to use Dr. Morita sheet masks before going to bed for revitalized skin in the morning.

●    Don’t let the excess leftover essence in the sheet mask package go to waste. Use it on your face and neck the next morning or night.

●    Don’t leave sheet masks on for more than the recommended time, as it will result in “reverse osmosis,” leaving your skin drier than the ideal.

●    Going on a trip? Sheet masks are a great travel-friendly skin care option!

●    Consider using a sheet mask daily for better results.
