Food4Skin 02 : Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX

10:12:00 PM

Hey guys ^^.

My newest mantra is : write more review, write more review, write more review *LOL*. As someone who's majorly recognized as a beauty blogger, i definitely don't write enough beauty-related posts nowadays, in fact the number's dwindling down like crazy-and that's not from any lack of material!

So for today imma review a product that has fast becoming a holy grail for me (and for many others as soon as they give it a try!) : Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX!
This is the other product generously gifted to us beauty bloggers from Laneige on their counter opening (you can read my other review for their BB Soothing Cushion here). 

Of course, i've heard of sleeping pack/sleeping masks before, but for someone with super oily skin that cannot stand rich products (my face would erupt with white heads!), i honestly wasn't interested in giving them a try. In fact, after receiving this product, i didn't even touch it for the longest time! Then my skin became all crazy in Singapore (very rough, dehydrated and full with whiteheads), i asked Oline (who has sensitive skin) if this Water Sleeping Pack would trigger more whiteheads-and she said NOPE. When it comes to sensitive skin care, i definitely would listen to Oline so i promptly gave it a try and... Just like that, i'm a convert *LOL*. Laneige seems to have a knack to make me change my mind!

Now first, what is Water Sleeping Pack_EX exactly? It is listed on the Special Care section, the description's taken from their website :
Light gel-type texture provides intensive hydration, vitality, and brightening effect while restoring skin with deep relaxation

Hm. High promises hehe. Let's see if it's that good for my skin, shall we? Of course, gotta start with the packaging as always :
Comes with a cube cardboard box with Laneige's signature colors : white and blue.
List of ingredients
What's inside :
There's a little pamphlet with the description of the product, benefits and how to use in multiple languages :
 

The product itself comes with a high quality, sturdy plastic (and probably acrylic?) jar in light blue color. The design is very simple and minimalistic, but definitely oozing the premium feeling!
They also provided a spatula to scoop out the sleeping pack so no need to worry about sticking your grubby fingers inside!
The jar's sealed so ensure that the product's new and still fresh!

Felt very happy when i saw this hehehe, dunno why but it looks very soothing already inside the jar hahaha
The Sleeping Pack texture is gel type, but denser than most gel products i've used in the past-it doesn't drop easily but...

It looked baby blue in the jar, but once you scoop it our it looks more white!
As you can see from the picture above, it melts really fast upon contact with body heat. When applied, it feels super soothing, cooling, calming and light! It got absorbed very fast as well! I also like the light, refreshing scent (kinda reminds me of Etude House's moisturizer that we used before, but lighter).

What they have to say about the scent :
An aromatic essence compound exclusively developed by AMOREPACIFIC, Sleepscent™(Patent application No. 10-2009-0043726), helps to relax your mind and body and derive for a good sleep. A good sleep effect allowing sufficient relaxation eventually reinforces skin restoration for healthier skin condition. Essential oils from Orange Flower, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Sandal Wood etc. are contained in the Sleepscent™.

So even the scent is developed exclusively for a specific purpose! How much more can you ask from your sleeping mask, huh?

When i first applied it, i was surprised at how light it feels-it was lighter than my normal moisturizer! But isn't this supposed to be a more intense product? Well, don't be fooled by the way the product looks and feels, because it really is very powerful! I immediately felt my skin to be softer, but when i woke the next day (you're supposed to sleep with it, like a regular moisturizer)-that's when the full impact can be felt, my skin's super hydrated, soft and supple! Overnight! It does feel very oily (but not as oily as some sheet mask can be), but it's not a big deal for me because we can always eliminate extra oil by washing our faces in the morning!

According to them, you need to apply this at nighttime just before you sleep because :
Night time skin transmission (permeability) shows higher rate than the one in the day time. Applying it right before sleep time, the best state for the skin transmission according to the skin circadian rhythm, maximizes the efficiency of overnight water supply. The function of skin remarkably declines in the night time. Enriched with Beta-glucan, Water Sleeping Pack_EX deeply hydrates fatigue and dry skin while Ceramide SLN formula strengthens the skin barrier. 

Snow Water helps to keep your skin look more crystal clear and vitalized, Antioxidant effect of Hunza Apricot Extracts helps brighten skin tone evenly by removing harmful oxygen and purifying skin and recoverine from Chestnuts promotes turnovers of horny layers to remove dead cells away for vigorous water supply and sleek skin texture.
 
Although it stated to deeply hydrates fatigue and dry skin (which might mean to not be very good for oily skin?), my skin's back to its normal crazy oily state now and i'm still using it every week (in less frequency, when my skin was dehydrated i used it twice a week, once my skin's back to normal i found that using it more than once a week is too much and i did get some white heads so now i'm using it only once a week-i don't even need other hydrating masks anymore!) without any breakout or making it even more oily so i personally think it's suitable for oily skin too, just use it less often than our dry-skinned fellows!

I must admit, i love the result so much (for me, softer, hydrated, supple skin-i'm not sure about the brightening effect since i'm already quite bright-skinned) and the convenience (you don't even have to use separate eye products...) that i contemplate using it more often, but please don't do it! LOL. It is super hydrating (yes, used it on hunny's dry, sensitive skin and it works spectacularly. He suffered from skin irritation once that his skin became super dry, rough and red-it was really scary-and this Sleeping Pack helped restore his skin condition with only one use!) so please follow the instruction, once or twice a week only!

No more dry as desert skin!!! :D


Both hunny and i are so in love with this product that we already discussed about purchasing another jar when ours run out (when in fact, the jar is still 80% full after weekly use for two people since July), like i said earlier : a total HG!

Laneige Water Sleeping pack retails for IDR 310.000 for 80mL (that's a LOT for skin care, especially one that you don't use everyday!)-i think it's very fairly priced if not in the low side for such high quality, premium brand and vast amount!

I would definitely recommend this product for everybody out there! I don't see a single soul that cannot benefit from this product *LOL*, especially if you have dry and dehydrated skin-it's a total skin saver! Oily skinned people can also benefit from using this product!

Thank you Laneige for the opportunity to try out yet another awesome product! Follow Laneige's social medias for promos, events and competitions!

PS : I just saw in their page that they have renamed (and repackaged) Water Sleeping Pack_Ex into Water Sleeping Mask-they're still the same thing though!
