PPAP Smear Leads to Uncomfortable Burning: Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen Sheet Mask Review

Angela (to Renee and Indya): LADIES!!! I have a very speshul present for you.

Indya: Does it involve cutting out lolcat talk?

Angela: Me haz no idea what zis hooman is talking about. Ahem–*whips out package*–feast your eyes on this.

Renee (eyes widening): Ooh, aaah. It’s so big! It’s so firm! It’s so…pineappley?! OMG it’s the heartthrob Pikotaro. Sooooo much better than your girly male Korean pop star masks!

Angela: I’m going to pretend you didn’t just wound the deepest part of my soul. Anyhoo, I got each of us a Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen (PPAP) sheet mask. You get a PPAP smear, you get a PPAP smear, EVERYONE gets a PPAP smear!

Renee: PPAP is the best thing that will ever happen to you. Watch this while wearing the above sheet mask and you will be just as beautiful as Pikotaro:

Angela: Beauty was never more in the eye of the beholder. Now that you’ve driven away our five readers (hi bye, Mom!), let’s get our mask on!

Pikotaro Pack-Pineapple-Apple-Pack Review

Indya (reading ingredients list): I’m allergic to pineapple, but there’s no way this pineapple mask can go wrong. *slaps on mask*

Indya: Hm. A little burny.

Angela: The apple one’s a little burny, too.

Indya: AAACCCK!! Very burny! *tears off mask*

Renee: Amateurs! That’s the tenderizing tingle of youth flooding your pores. I’m enjoying this, but I also get lip injections, bathe in the blood of virgin male models, and sleep upside down to avoid wrinkles, so YMMV.

Renee: My only critique is that this mask makes it hard to attract said virgins for said bath (full review coming). Even lounging in bed and come-hither eyes can’t make ME as good-looking as Pikotaro. This mask captures his features well–all except that je ne sais quoi that hypnotized millions.

Angela: At $6 a pop (from Ume Cosme in NY), I expected a tiny bit more than gimmicks. The print and the apple/pineapple scents didn’t disappoint, but the fabric’s as stiff as his “dancing” and irritation is the opposite of what I want in a sheet mask. Swiping LEFT on this one.

No, I don’t want to see your pineapple pen.

Pikotaro Pack-Pineapple-Apple-Pack Ingredients

The ingredients in each pack are identical, except that the pineapple has pineapple water and the apple has apple oil. *CONTAINS NO PEN* Click to enlarge ingredients:


Just as I am confused over whether PPAP marks the nadir or the zenith of humanity, this mask is confused about whether it’s made in Japan or Korea.

Do I really care? Nah. Just wanted an excuse to cover Baldy and Cony with pineapples.

    haha. i had no idea who this dude was and now, thanks to you, i will be humming that ‘i have a pen. i have an apple. i have a apple pen’ tune all day today.

  2. Indya says:

    I have never laughed so much at a review! 😂😂

  3. Jenny says:

    I just tried out the Apple pack! And yes—it really burns! I think it’s because of the sugar maple extract though—it’s suppose to work as a natural AHA.

    Either way, it was fun and I did the ppap dance at my boyfriend.
