Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX

without comments

Now the Winter is over, I can finally share something I’ve been using that’s helped me a lot retain moisture during those really drying out months. It’s Laneige’s Water Sleeping Pack EX! With my arsenal of creams, I still find it difficult to keep my skin hydrated at all times. I first tried a sample of this last summer and liked it’s hydrating properties, so I bought a small travel kit for my vacation last year. Then I used it over the winter and I feel like it’s saved my skin.

Laneige is a Korean skincare brand under the Amore Pacific umbrella. It’s known for its use of Himalayan Snow Water in their products. Aside from skincare, they also have a cosmetics line.

The box describes it as “Sleeping pack that gives intensive hydration, vitality and brightening effect during sleep.”

It comes packaged in a beautiful glossy box, containing a light blue jar, a small white paddle for scooping out the product, and paper foldout (not pictured) containing information and how to use in Korean, English, and Chinese. When you unscrew the top, I was pleased to see a security seal covering the opening of the jar. Bonus points for sanitation, Laneige!

 

The Product

Gel-like consistency

The product itself has a gel-like consistency. It’s a very pale blue-green colour that becomes clear when applied to your face. You use a light layer normally, but if you have extra dry areas, you can be more liberal with the product. The scent is light and very pleasant, slightly floral.

To use, apply it to your face in place of your moisturizer. After I was my face, I’ll use a toner, apply my serum, then the Water Sleeping Pack. No moisturizer needed. Once it dries, you’ll feel like you applied a very light mask. Sleep through the night wearing this “mask” and then wash your face with only water when you wake up in the morning. I’ve found that my skin looks and feels very well hydrated!

I only use this twice a week as recommended. I’m not exactly sure why this can’t be used every day. I do find that twice a week works for me.

 

The Verdict

For some dryness relief for your skin, hydrate it with Laneige’s Water Sleeping Pack EX! I liked the travel size so much that I’ve purchased the full size jar. I find it’s much more hydrating than other night creams out there. The gel-like consistency is not sticky at all and dries after you stop massaging it into your skin. Definitely a product I would recommend!
