Laneige Light Balancing Emulsion

I love love love Laneige products. The sales lady had told me the Light line is best for summer time when skin tends to be more oily because of the humidity. When I peeked at the official website, it states it’s made for those with oily/combination skin. This is known as Balancing Emulsion in both Asia and in North America. The one I’m reviewing is from Asia.

 

The Packaging

The bottle and cap is made of sturdy plastic, and fits nicely in your hand.

The pump mechanism consists of a push top with a small white tube which the product is dispensed from. I find 2 pumps is enough for my whole face and neck.

 

The Product

Like with all Laneige products, the scent is nice and not too heavy.  I adore the smell of Laneige products, but those with very sensitive noses may not like it. The emulsion is lighter than a lotion, but it means that it spreads very easily and absorbs readily. Unfortunately for me, these winter months have caused my skin to dry considerably, so the emulsion is not enough for my skin. I’ve been pairing it with Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX, and it’s giving me great hydration overnight.

 

The Verdict

I feel this would be great to use during the summer months, but it doesn’t offer enough hydration for me for winter. Those with oily skin may benefit from this though. I’m likely going to squirrel this away until it gets warmer, and switch to something more hydrating for these cold months.
