This was a nice surprise. I heard so many raves but I was really skeptical. Bought it for my brother who rarely uses it so I decided to try. Nice cooling sensation and fairly moisturising - but not enough for me now that my skin type is dry. Apart from hydration it doesn't do anything else. Might repurchase as a gift but not for me!
I was hoping to find a less expensive alternative to Dr. Jart+ water mask. I love Dr. Jart's! Well the packaging is nice, the consistency is similar. It's a nice gel that feels cool when you apply it to your freshly moisturized skin. I tried it for two nights. Both nights my cheeks started to burn and feel itchy after an hour. I have mild rosacea and sensitive skin. Suspect it is either the fragrance or the blue dye that I react to. I have since used it on my neck and chest and can tolerate it there. It does seem to hold in my serums and creams and my skin is softer in the morning, but I think it would be a better product without fragrance and dye. So if you are lucky and have less sensitive skin it may work for you, but I can't recommend it.
The product is a meh for me. I woke up that morning and did expect to see wonders because I layered this product on the previous night, but there's nothing at all. My skin feels stinky and oily, not smooth or soft as people said about it. I wouldnt repurchase of course!
This stuff is great! I was given a free Laneige gift pack at a company event and have used this on/off for about 4 months. My initial concern was that it would break me out. I mean, look at it! It's quite heavily fragranced, the colour of aqua blue, and is supposed to slathered all over your face before you go to bed. The last thing I want is something that aggravates my already annoying clogged-up acne prone skin... but thankfully, it never has!
I found this overnight mask to be somewhat of a staple for me. Whenever my skin is angry and peeling from my chemical peels, or if I need to a inject a little life into my miserable skin, I reach for this. I slather a thick layer on before I sleep and when I wake up, my skin is moisturized, smooth and healthy. I still have to put this through the test in winter, but so far I've been impressed. I live in Hong Kong and this product has been hyped up for a very long time, and I'm happy to report that it lives up to its hype.
The only fault that I can find with it is its fragrance - I really wish Laneige would tone down on it! I find it a bit too floral and slightly unnecessary for a product like this.
This really doesn't work for me. Maybe because I put too much on my face, it just sits there and I can feel sliminess next day when I wash my face. And worst of all, I noticed that this enlarges my pores when I wake up the next day. Proof that this is not my problem, I use sulwhasoo overnight vitalizing mask as well, those days that I use sulwhasoo, I wake up with fairer skin, no big pores, and it definitely doesn't sit on my skin. I use this on my body now, it still sits on my skin though. Ohh, and laneige products all contain paraben.
I really like this sleeping pack. Very light and fast absorped in my skin. I have combinied skin, very oily at tzone (esp if I have outdoor activities)but I feel dry inside. This sleeping pack help me to balance it. After used it, I woke up with soft skin. This is not my face break out.
I have a normal to oily skin but i amaze of how this sleeping pack is still suits to me. I tought is just for everyone who has dry skin, coz of its title 'water bank'. Sleeping with this mask on, it's absorb fast and i can feel my skin healthier & soften in the next morning i rinse this. Recommend this to whoever want their skin soften, moisturer & healthier. Don't try this if you want to gain lightening, brightening or whitening effects.
I think I'll be the first one to admit that we are all guilty of loving a product we own so much, that we go online to check out beauty forum reviews, hoping to find glowing testimonies that reinforce how we already feel about something. This is one of the products I own that makes me so happy that I scour the net to find like-minded people who make me feel even happier about owning it.
Yes, we all know that Korean and Japanese skincare tend to neglect the importance of exfoliation, focusing instead of piling the skin with lovely lightweight moisturisers. Yes, we also know that these poreless, glowing beauties are photoshopped. But the Laniege Water Sleeping Pack makes me feel *that* much closer to them.
I live in Singapore, where it's pretty much humid all the time. It's sometimes not feasible to wear highlighter cremes, because mingled with humidity-induced sweat, and the slow migration of foundation downwards, your face ends up looking like a shiny mess. The Water sleeping pack gives me a really nice "glow from within". I pop it on over my night moisturiser (rose hip seed oil), and when I wake up in the morning, I'm all dewy and fresh faced.
More importantly, does the "inner glow" last all day? Yes, with the help of my trusty This Works primer, YSL Touche Eclat highlighter, and a dusting of Guerlain Meteorites. The day after I use my sleeping pack, I don't need foundation or any extra powder.
However, the sleeping pack needs to be used consistently. I have very sensitive skin, and I haven't experienced any burning or redness. In fact, it's a beautiful cooling sensation I get when I pop it on (I'm also guilty of putting my face right up to the air conditioner to get maximum coolness while it dries). Used twice a week, and with a consistent exfoliation regime (also about 2-3 times a week for me with Lush's Brazened Honey), this has been making my 'good skin days' more of a norm than ever.
One more thing -- perhaps it's because my skin is so sensitive, but I find that if I leave the mask on for more than say, 7 hours, I get a bit of breakout (tiny pimples on the cheeks). So don't ever forget to wash this off! And don't use it if you know you're going to be sleeping in. 4/5
This was given to me to try and I'm sorry to say it didn't work for me. I have extremely sensitive skin with mild rosacea. I finally nailed down a basic skin routine and my rosacea was immensely improved, so I thought it would be a good time to try out this sleeping pack. The packaging and the product itself are gorgeous. The jar comes with a little plastic scoop to keep dirty fingers out, so I scooped the product onto my hand and rinsed the plastic scoop off for next time. The product itself is a luxuriously smooth, luminous blue gel. It felt nice and refreshing going on, but for me that's where the benefits ended. I noticed a strong floral/sandalwood fragrance, which worried me. I read the insert in the box, which made a big deal of the aromatherapeutic scent, so it's definitely meant to smell strongly, but not so good for my sensitive skin. It also burned a little bit on my cheeks where I have the worst redness.
I went to bed with it on anyway, hoping the product would do some good. In the morning my face felt drier than it usually does, even after rinsing off the product. In addition, I had much more pronounced redness and my cheeks felt itchy and tender all day long. I found this product to be less hydrating than my usual Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel (which is awesome, by the way) and I think the strong fragrance caused my sensitive skin to react badly.
I'll be giving this back to the gift-giver (who loves the product) and sticking with my Clinique DDMG.
I'll admit, I am quite terrible to my skin...I don't drink enough water nor sleep enough. As such, my skin often gets dry and flaky especially during autumn and winter. The Laneige Water Sleeping Pack is my saviour and is really simple to use. I apply it (instead of moisturiser) at night after cleansing my face and before sleeping (as recommended). I tend to concentrate around my dry areas (forehead and nose) and in the following morning, the product would have absorbed into the skin leaving a face that is soft and flake free!
I also have a mini pot of the Water Sleeping Pack I like to bring with me when travelling. This is a must have for staying in hotel rooms when they have the air conditioning blasting 24/7.
The product itself has a light pleasant scent and is pale blue coloured which matches the packaging design. Some people might not like the jar design but I think the jar is good because it allows you to get to all of the product. There is also a mini plastic spatula that comes with the Sleeping Pack so that the product can be scooped out without using dirty fingers.
This Sleeping Pack is above the usual amount I would spend on beauty products but a little goes a long way. I wouldn't hesitate to repurchase this again especially since it is so effective on my dry skin.
