Product Description

Sleeping pack that gives intensive hydration, vitality and brightening effect during sleep. Alcohol free. Dermatologist tested.


Texture & Scent:


This sleeping mask has a lightweight, silicony feel to it. It spreads easily unto your skin, and absorbs quickly into the skin with minimal aid.

It has a rather strong floral fragrance once on, but it dissipates quickly (thank God because I don't like it!)! :D


Packaging:


This mask comes in a plastic tub with a screw off lid. It is filled almost to the brim when new (shown above).  I would prefer it they provide a reusable plastic lid to better keep germs and air out though.

This is how it looks brand new sealed:


And this is the box it came in:


I like how a spatula is included in the box! Methinks that its a good practice for all skin care companies to follow! :D



Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at RM100 and it is available at all Laneige counters. It may seem expensive to shell out a hundred bucks at a go, but it seriously lasts a long time! I have been using my tub every other day since June last year, and there's still slightly less than a quarter left! This is definitely cheaper than using sheet masks! :D


My $0.02:

This is a highly raved product! Prior to trying this out, i've always told myself to check this one out, but somehow other things always get the precedence over it. Lol! It was during this fateful outing with my colleagues to the counter at Gurney Plaza that i got poisoned suckered persuaded into buying this (and the Hydra Solution Cream, the review of which is wayyyyy overdue since eons ago! :P) - the SA was seriously nice and friendly! My colleague's venom raves did not help either. So i picked this up and went on home to give it a spin! :D

So, do I echo my colleague's raves? Unfortunately I don't :( But hear me out!

I find this a great product for lazy busy people like mua who want to just slap something on and go to bed immediately. It also brightens well and my skin feels a little moisturized in the morning. However, I find that on its own, it is not moisturizing enough for my combi-dry skin. I find that i need to layer my usual moisturizer over it for my skin to feel adequately moisturized. Methinks that for oily skinned individuals (like my colleague), it is perhaps moisturizing enough on its own! :)

I also love how long a tub lasts! I have been using mine since June last year and I still have enough to last me a couple months so the hundred bucks that i've paid for it definitely goes a long way! :D

All in all, methinks that this is not a bad product - it is just not moisturizing enough for me. I may repurchase in the future because it so convenient to use! :)


How about you? Have you tried this product out before? Do you like it? :D

  1. I find that the Naruko Night Gelly does almost the same thing as this product, but at a cheaper price though... :)

  3. i used to use this, then i stop because I got bored lol.

    but i think like you say, oily skin individuals would appreciate this better. a friend of mine who is oily skinned loves this to bits!

    i got combi-oily and works pretty well for me, but not when i got dry patches :(
