Laneige is up there in the K-beauty world and are renowned for their patented technology in hydration and moisture so we have no doubt about the quality of their products. However, are their best sellers worth all the hype? Elle (pic below) trialed and put these products to the test!
("These products made my makeup glide on with ease and skin glow!" - Elle)
Laneige - Lip Sleeping Mask
"No more waking up to dry, cracked lips!"
I've been using Laneige's Lip Sleeping Mask (Berry) for one month, applying religiously every night after my night time routine. The result? Waking up to super soft, smooth and hydrated lips in the morning. This product is full of Vitamin C and Antioxidants that will help nourish your lips and get it makeup ready the next morning. It also has Hyaluronic Acid (see Skin Dictionary) and minerals, which form a protective layer over your lips to lock in the moisture and active ingredients.
Also, any dead skin on your lips can be polished away with ease after you catch some zzz's. Plus, the berry scent smells good enough to eat (don't eat it, babes). I also have the mint chocolate version, which is equally lovely. I highly recommend it for anyone who sleeps with their mouth open (guilty!) and this may cause dry lips, especially during the cold seasons—it's a life saver! You only need a bit of this stuff so the full size product will last you a very long time. Love it!
How do I use it? Apply after night time routine. Apply generously onto your lips before you sleep.
Laneige - Water Sleeping Mask
Another product that works its magic while you are sleeping! If only everything else in life can get done while you're asleep... like house work! Of course, I am not one to give into hype easily so I was skeptical at first. However, after applying the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask before bed, I noticed that my skin looks glowy and dewy the next morning. Now I can't see my life without this sleeping mask. It's especially amazing during hot nights and you can wake up to super bouncy, supple skin. (Don't over-do it like I did the first time and use too much product - it can leave your skin feeling sticky). Do yourself a favour and get this miracle mask. You will feel the difference the next day.
How do I use it? Apply a moderate amount and gently spread over your face. Apply it at the last step in your evening routine. Leave on overnight. Rinse off in the morning for that extra glow!
Elle's final verdict:
Worth! I think in deference to its popularity, the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask and Water Sleeping Mask is the K-beauty product many fresh faces like to try first and for good reason too! Laneige are *the* pioneers of products for hydration and definitely know what they're doing. I recommend both products and give them a well deserved 5 stars!
Take care and may the Skin Gods be kind to you today.
