Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX Review

July 20, 2012

 I've known for this product since years ago, when one of beauty gurus on youtube swore by it, BubzBeauty. At that time I never knew that there's a sleeping mask existed in this world, I mean, seriously, a mask that you wear when you're sleeping, then you woke up with super awesome moisturized skin? o_O

What if the mask's sticky and spreads on the pillow? wtf!

But then as years passed by, my curiousity grow stronger and I wanna try it but there's no counter of Laneige in Indonesia and it's really difficult to get one T__T Then one day Zatura told me that they'd like to send this product, and I was like, omg how did they know that I wanna try that miraculous product??? I felt that I heard a church bell at that time LOL

So so, let's review it!! *excited*

Description : 

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.

With containing the Snow Water, it helps to keep your skin look more crystal clear and vitalized. 

Packaging :

Love the packaging for it's simplicity but yet still manage to look classy and young at the same time. A sturdy thick plastic packaging with blue color really reminds me of water. And that's the point. The major purpose is to moisturize skin by using snow water!! 

Also the color of blue is scientifically proven to calm the mood, so whenever I see this product when I want to use it, I am super relaxed :D

It comes in jar tube, but it comes with its own spatula to scoop out the product. Although it's only 80ml, but the packaging is really firm and sturdy, and so thick also, so it's quite heavy and bulky in fact :x

Application : 

It's said to use it 1-2 times a week. Simply put a sheer layer and spread it on your entire face after you finish with your skin care routine, then rinse it off with water when you wake up from your beauty sleep lol 

I dunno why but I imagine that when I put skin care products and finish it off with this mask, I feel that it works as a shield, so the skincare wont go anywhere, being pressed down into the skin by this product. Indescribable feeling lol but I just love it!

Many people like to use it as night cream because it can work as one too! But I only use it 1-2 times a week otherwise my skin will be immune of this product soon -_-"

 Texture & Scent :

This light blue gel like texture is easy to spread on face, gives translucent when I wear it, almost as if I wear night cream only. It one goes a long way, so you dont need much of this product. It has soothing and cooling effect which I believe why they mention that it's made from snow water! 

Essential oils from Orange Flower, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Sandal Wood etc are included in the ingredients to make the aroma better. I SUPER LOVE the scent and can sleep really great because of the scent, cos it's super relaxing and the texture is not sticky at all unlike what I thought it would be!

It needs a little time before it's safe to sleep on, but after 15-20 minutes, I can sleep and it wont stick on my pillow sheet. It's really comfortable to sleep on, it doesn't drip down either


Result : 

I love how it's really convenient because you just put it on your face on the night, and you wake up with moisturized, suppler, and softer skin! Super easy to use and fascinating result!

I notice that my skin is really moisturized when I use this product overnight. The result still stays after a few days, but then I have to re-use it again when my skin is dry again. My cheek has been really dry recently so I wear it about 3 times a week to revive it X_X 

It helps my skin to look more radiant and brighter, I also feel that it's getting smoother and firmer too. But unfortunately the effect wont give you permanent result if you dont wear it diligently. After all, skincare is all about determination and disciplinary to take care of it on long term basis, right?

Where I Got This and Price : 

 I got this from Zatura Shop, and they offer Rp 258.000 each. Quite pricey I know, but Laneige is a high end brand as far as I know, and I heard some people buy it for 30-40USD each. Sure if you happen to live in Korea, I believe you can get it for cheaper price and easier to buy, but if you live in Indonesia, you may try Zatura service, also if you mention stellalee, you will receive additional 6% discount too leh! :D

Final Opinion :

Pros : 
  • Sturdy and classy packaging
  • Very convenient and easy to use
  • Has relaxing scent to sleep on
  • Not sticky, easy to spread on
  • Moisturizing and soothing out the skin
  • Gives suppler and firmer skin as it's rejuvenated
  • A little goes a long way

Cons : 
  • A little bit pricey
  • Takes a while till it's fully absorbed and can be sleeping with
  • Difficult to find / purchase

I love this product a lot and I think it's a great investment, but I find that this product works much better for people with dry skin or older people with low skin elasticity, because this products helps to rejuvenate those skin types

I know my friends give it to their mom and MOST of them love it so much. Younger people tend to have firmer and moister skin. You can still wear this product, but I think it's much more effective for older and people with dry skin

I notice the greatest improvement of my skin after using this product is my dry cheek. It doesn't give significant result on my oily areas. So, are you people with dry skin, or would you like to give a present for your mom? Go with this one
But if you happen to have very moisturized skin, you dont have to purchase this product as there are other cheaper masks available :)
