The Holidays are my favorite time to try out skin care products because of all the variety and value sets that are released at Sephora and Ulta. I usually have my eye on a few products and brands that I want to take for a test drive, and this year I was dying to try the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. I have heard great things from Youtubers and stalked so many glowing reviews about this mask, but I was still skeptical of how hydrating it could actually be and if it was really worth the $33 price tag. The Hydration Kit is a perfect starter for the brand and also comes with the exact product I wanted to try — I bought it instantly.
I have been testing these products for 2 weeks in order to give an experienced review. The online blurb at Sephora boasts of super hydration as well as aiding dullness and uneven texture. After using the products, I can definitely attest to the hydration. My skin is usually quite dry in the winter (especially in windy Toronto). The toner and the water essence feel so luxurious after I wash my face; however, the moisture cream is by far my favourite night time moisturizer that I have ever used. It is light, creamy, easy to spread across my face, and also smells like a spa I could never afford.
The Water Sleeping Mask is truly magnificent. It doesn’t feel sticky on your face or leave a bad residue when you wake up in the morning (although I do recommend washing your face off before applying any other product). I can tell a difference in the hydration of my skin, and I also think that it has helped my under eyes perk up as well. I usually don’t shell out for facemasks, but this mask feels like it is a SUPER EXPENSIVE product. Paying 33 dollars feels like a steal because of how elegant and pampering it feels.
As you can see, the samples do look small. The toner will definitely run out quickly if I use it every day; however, the cream products will last a long time. A little goes a long way. This set is only available online and I would give it 5 stars in an instant. Each product works well together as a system, but I have no doubt that the mask and moisture cream would be great staples for any skin care routine, especially if you like to treat your self. I can’t wait to try more from Laneige!
