I got this in Korea as the China SA was pushing for this for the anti ageing protection for 20-30s. Since I was there and Laneige is my favourite brand for my HG toner , I decided to give it a try. This is not cheap, think 57000 or 60000 KRW.

Unlike the waterbank essence , this the packaging is in a plastic form which I much prefer than the glass one for the waterbank essence. Means I can carry back something lighter. It is very hygenic due to the dispencer.

However, the texture was really oily. I felt really oily when I first applied on my face but it does not give a greasy feeling after application. As for the anti ageing effect honestly i could not tell.

Overall I will skip this.

This cream is so nice on the skin not that thick and not that thin in between the texture, when I apply this in the night always get up to gorgeous glowing skin.

It does improve my skin tone and gave clarity to it. But it broke me out mildly during initial usage. Absorbs quickly and smells good too. Definitely not hydrating enough. Will repurchase but it is a pretty expensive.

Really nice product, my face definitely feels firmer after use.

Not sure whether it stops premature wrinkles yet but I have noticed a significant difference in the smile lines around my mouth, which our now less visible than they were before :)

Laneige Perfect Renew Essence
The consistency of this anti-aging serum is not as heavy as most serums, but not as light as moisturizers. And again, like most Laneige products, it is lightly scented. Luckily, it doesnt cause my sensitive skin to break out.
The packaging is in a small blue pump-bottle. It is not transparent like the other Perfect Renew products, hence I cannot really see as to how much product is left. *sad
How I apply it:
After using emulsion, I use about a pump and apply onto my cheeks, forehead and chin.
For my cheek area, I massage and spread out the essence with an inward to outward motion. I then massage the mouth area to eye area with an upward motion and for the forehead, I massage the product with inward to outward upward motion.
Lastly, I finish up with my palm, lightly pressing down my face for about two to three times.
The application is done in such a way to ensure the maximum absorption of the serum into my skin.
- A small pea size is enough for my entire face
- I actually noticed a difference in my skin after 2 weeks of using this product. My skin is firmer, and the fine lines around my nose and mouth and on my forehead are visibly lighter. Ive been using the product for almost 2 months now and the fine lines on my forehead are..gone ^^ happiness!!!! (but please note that I decided to use this product after a month or two of noticing the fine lines on my face)
- It doesnt leave my skin with a sticky feeling.
- It doesnt clog my pores
- Quite pricey ( $50 for a 40ml bottle T_T )

I received a 5mL sample of this in a trial kit I received with my purchase during the 2010 holiday promotion. This is supposed to be an anti-aging essence so it's hard to say if there were actually results or not. Laneige packaging as always is superb. The product itself was nice, it was a very watery texture that you apply by massaging into your skin and then putting your hands over your face to let the product be absorbed more effectively. Afterwards my face feels a little sticky but the feeling goes away after awhile. It feels very nice on the skin and the fragrance is light and fresh. If I had money to burn I would maybe purchase this again, but I can't see myself itching to buy this.
