I purchased a mini version of this because I was so intrigued by it & finally succumbed to it.
Living in the tropics, humid climate. Oily combo skin type, acne prone/slight blemishes currently. Currently an NC25-30 skin tone. Using shade 23 Sand which happens to be a good match.
I have tried initial application with the cushion sponge but I found that it kind of sticks to my skin in a not nice way. Did not like the texture that it looked on my skin afterwards.
Afterwards I switched to applying the product with a beauty blender & preferred the finish much, much better. The shade blends really well into my skin. I don’t have much to cover in general except my cheeks which have blemishes, so I applied the most from the cheek area and outwards.
Surprisingly it also concealed my pore areas nicely. It almost feels like skin. I almost regret that I did not try it earlier!
Coverage wise, light-medium coverage, and buildable with a natural finish. If you have oily combo skin type like me, best bet is to set the product and it can last for a good 6-8 hrs without coming off. I’m not a fan of touch ups, but this is great as the packaging is compact.
If you prefer heavier coverage, this might not be for you. You may still need to use a fair bit of concealer to achieve a fuller coverage.
In terms of “whitening” properties, I’m not sure if this has it, I haven’t really noticed much. But it’s definitely something that I would possibly repurchase at a full size version!
Really really pleased. I think I’m going back to using Kbeauty products.
Hope this helps!

I was looking for an alternative to my HG, but very expensive, Kanebo Sensai foundation and stumbled across Laneige Hydraradiance on a You Tube demo. Hmmmm...a cushion BB cream? I ordered #21 Beige for my fair, cool tone, super dry skin and crossed my fingers for $35. When it arrived, I opened the box and saw a very attractive white compact and a foil pouch containing the product which I thought an innovative to ship. Fortunately, I opened the compact first to double check how to install the actual foundation because upon opening, I discovered the compact was already filled. YES: two foundations, one compact. Had to be too good to be true. I used my usual primers: Laura Mercier all over and Lancôme blur and go for areas needing smoothing. While the compact contains a small sponge, I used my usual Beauty Blender to apply. Incredible, buildable coverage, a beautiful natural finish, no settling into lines or pores, and wore all day. It made a great base for the rest of my makeup. Sorry, Kanebo; you’re pushed out of first place by Laneige. Definitely top of all the foundations I’ve used and doesn’t break the bank.

I have literally read thru all the reviews to see how others are using this Sleeping Mask because there seems to be some confusion to its actual properties. When used alone, this mask will not benefit your skin at all. It is designed to optimize what moisture your skin currently has the next morning. It is listed in the instructional pamphlet in the first paragraph as an "intensive moisturizing sleeping mask" and I think therein lies the confusion. If you stop reading there, you won't reap the benefits of the product.The pamphlet discusses how "Skin loses a lot of moisture overnight if no skincare product is applied to it at night. The Sleeping Mask is a moisturizing sleeping mask that charges skin with the moisture needed overnight." What the pamphlet fails to continue to explain is that a lot of what we put on our faces at night is rubbed off on our pillowcases unless we sleep on our backs and don't move at all. (I don't know anyone that doesn't move in their sleep.) So no matter how much of the good stuff we put on, and yes, there is a theory that after the first 15-20 minutes the absorbtion rate is greatly reduced and your skin doesn't respond to anymore of the product anyway, much of the product goes onto our lovely satin pillowcases. This product holds our normal serum/essence/refiner/emulsion/etc. in so they don't rub off. It acts like a seal on top of the other normal products that you would be putting on in the evening. For that, and that alone, I give it a 5-Star rating. I have never had a product that worked like that to keep a product on my face and off my pillows.As to the additional claims that are from the enclosed Laniege pamphlet: 1. "The Sleeping Mask is a moisturizing sleeping mask that charges skin with the moisture needed overnight." The pamphlet tells me to apply the mask after skin refiner and emulsion are applied. Usually emulsion is towards the end of the routine so I already have a number of moisturizing products on my skin. Adding this sleeping mask for additional moisture seems redundant but perhaps something is lost in the translation, I'm not sure. If you have seriously dry skin, it works. If your skin is oily, I'd say cut back on some moisturizer, but not all of your products. Play around to see which work best, but always use your normal routine skincare as usual before this mask.2. "The anti-oxidant function of apricot extract provides a brightening effect and makes skin look clear and bright by removing free radicals that give stress to skin." Haven't noticed any brightening effect that my Vitamin C doesn't take care of better.3. "The various effective sleeping care ingredients absorbed into skin overnight help skin absorb makeup the following morning." That's a huge claim that I really won't comment about. I don't use a lot of make-up anyway and I wouldn't want my skin to absorb makeup because I'm using such a heavy load. I get what they're saying but I prefer a natural look with a lighter hand to show fresher skin. Isn't that the point of skin care products?4. "Helps skin have a good rest, provides moisturizing feel without leaving any sticky residue." It isn't sticky, I'll agree with that. My skin looks decent in the morning, I'm happy with the results, I always get compliments on my skin, so whatever I'm doing (a crazy mix of products and techniques) seems to work. Once it dries, and it does dry quickly, I don't even know it's on my face. Big plus there. No gooey stuff, no greasy mess.The smell is almost non-existent to me. I keep my jar in the fridge and always use a scoop to get the product out. The huge jar is lasting me a half a year so far and it's half-empty at this point so it's a good deal. As a stand-alone moisturizer it fails because that's not what it is. As a mask on top of other products, it works. As a protectant to keep my pillowcase clean and keep my other skincare products on my face, it excels. For that reason, I would re-purchase. I'd advise getting a sample or purchasing a trial-size first and using it the proper way to see if it works for you. Laneige suggests once or twice a week, but I've used it more often than that. They also suggest not using eye care products with this but I feel eye care is essential, just my humble opinion.

I own and have used the original Laneige Water Sleeping Mask, so when Laneige released their new Lavender Water Sleeping Mask I thought I would give it a try and see how it compared to the original. I must say that my biggest disappointment was that Laneige didn't actually include lavender, instead they simply included fragrance. In general I prefer to avoid fragrance when possible. Since this is a sleeping mask meant to be used in the evening, over other treatment products, the fragrance isn't as big of a concern as if it were to be used in the daytime/ sunlight (due to many fragrance ingredients being phototoxic). Other than the scent difference the masks are quite similar. The Laneige Lavender Water Sleeping Mask has the same silky, water-gel texture that feels very hydrating. This also layers well over other skincare products and absorbs nicely overnight. The Laneige Lavender Water Sleeping Mask does contain denatured alcohol, which I prefer to avoid when possible, but that is probably what helps give it the silky gel texture. My sole biggest disappointment was that lavender was not used instead of fragrance.

During my Accutane phase I used to really look forward to using this every night, followed by a layer of the Water Sleeping Mask (also by Laneige). This contains some good ingredients, aswell as some that are nothing to boast about. Its effects on my parched face however were more than worth it. I never had to use too much of this, which meant it lasted for quite a while. I would gently apply to my face, especially concentrating on drier areas such as cheeks and around mouth area. After about a minute I would follow with the Water Sleeping Mask which would seal in the moisture. I would wake up in the morning to skin that was more dewy, softer and supple. Granted the products could not completely saturate my skin with moisture (as the meds were doing their job to stop my sebaceous glands from doing theirs!) but it helped immensely, only faltering when the weather turned colder and I had to step up to something richer.
