LANEIGE Skincare - Drench Your Skin in Moisture This Winter6:00 am
What makes this alluring regimen stand out is actually water. It may have taken studying over 100 different types of water around the world and 20 years of research but their scientifically-engineered, skin-perfecting mineral water has been "clinically proven to hydrate, protect and revitalize individual skin types." This technology works to brighten and smooth skin, and fade dark spots, while products cool and hydrate upon application.
So you get round-the-clock hydration and protection from rich ingredients including bio-peptides, ceramide, trace mineral maganese, magnesium, zinc, that penetrates deep within the skin and restores your skin's moisture. This is important year round of course, but during this bitter cold winter, it becomes not just essential, but a complete skin saviour.
Here's a closer look at a few products from their stellar lineup:
There are a lot of masks out there, so if you're wondering if this one is worth it, just consider this - this global award-winner is sold every 12 seconds worldwide.
You'll add yourself to the list once you feel the cool aqua gel hit your cheeks, forehead, nose and chin, and take in the gorgeous scent.
Just apply it before bed and you'll wake up to smoother, softer, more radiant, rejuvenated skin. Powerful ingredients including evening primrose and hunza apricot extracts detox your skin, while Moisture Wrap technology infuses your skin with hydration, replenishing your skin overnight.
But that's not enough the best part. Their brilliant Sleepscent was formulated to relax you and encourage deep sleep.
This dreamy, clean, floral scent that I can't get enough of helps you get a good night sleep while all the other ingredients work to give your stunning skin the following morning (I swear you'll gasp when you look in the mirror as I do each and every time)?
It truly is all that.
If you want a little respite from the roller coaster we call life, this mask does the trick.
First of all, it works with whatever ails you - are you battling dry skin or are you on the oily side? Straddling both? Even if you have normal or sensitive dermis, this will take care of you.
Ooh, the calming green tea and chamomile scent is almost as relaxing as a massage. Ahhh.
The thin, clear hydrogel sheet mask comes drenched in rich ingredients, set between two cutout pages. You simply peel off the paper and place it over your face. The eye and mouth holes are nice and big so hey'll no doubt be suitable for various proportions and face angles, but not so gaping as to leave sections untreated.
The mask also adheres easily so you can move around a bit if you want to. This mask asks for a longer time than most - 30 minutes, as opposed to the usual 5, 10 or 15, but trust me, it's worth it - so you want to know that it's going to stay put.
Hydro ionized mineral water cools cools upon impact which is nice, though in the middle of a winter freeze, I was worried it would make me feel cold. It did not. In fact, between the scent and the cooling, hydrating sensation, I felt completely relaxed - a state I was nowhere near a few minutes earlier. And in fact, the sheet mask is so thin, I didn't even feel it after the first few minutes. I just felt soothed and drenched in moisture. Like at the spa, but in the comfort of home. Even better.
I felt so de-stressed in fact that I forgot about checking out the results for a few hours. Then I looked in the mirror.
All dryness, unevenness and dullness had completely vanished and even with the lights out, I could still see my skin simply glowed.
Winter just got a whole lot brighter.
I am completely addicted to these little pods of nourishment.
This leave-on face and neck mask comes in thick capsules of clear hydrating gel cream with a milky white brightening cream ampoule suspended in its midst.
When you pop open the package, simply mix the contents with your finger (or tiny skincare spatula if you prefer) and apply evenly. A fab tip - gently tap to ensure full absorption.
While the gel cream deeply hydrates the skin, the ampoule featuring Laneige’s Melacrusher Brightening Technology works to brighten your skin and reduce the appearance of dark spots.
You'll wake up feeling - and looking - so refreshed. Your skin will be hydrated, softened, smoothed, and illuminated, as if you've just returned from vacation or are exhibiting the signs of falling in love.
It's no wonder they're so habit-forming. Who doesn't want to look this fabulous all the time?
p.s. Because these l'il wonders come in one-time-use capsules, they are ideal for travel.
