I absolutely love facial masks, and I can honestly say I'm quite the addict. I really do prefer them over sheet masks, because they're just so inexpensive. Whilst sheet masks over time can drill a rather large hole in my pocket, I feel that facial masks just last so much longer. The only downside to using them so often is that sometimes, I just don't have the time to sit back and relax.
On most days I actually don't have the luxury of pampering myself, and before I even know it - it'll be time for bed. All I have time for is my usual skin care routine, before heading off to sleep ^_^" And so, I was really interested after hearing about the Laneige Water Sleeping Pack, since it just sounded so incredibly convenient!
I mean, it's a hydrating mask that you put on before you sleep - then BAM! You "supposedly" have plump, moisturised and ready-to-go skin the next morning. I was pretty much sold. There were just so many reviews raving on and on about this product, so I definitely had to try it out for myself.
It was the first product that I had purchased from Laneige, and I'm really quite impressed.
First Impression: I originally purchased mine from sasa, and I do have to warn you guys that this product is often out of stock since it's so popular! When I first saw the packaging, I was absolutely in love with it. The box was just so adorable and pretty, and I absolutely love the shade of blue. The container itself felt very sturdy, and of rather good quality. It came with a small scoop (with the Laneige logo) and instructions on how to apply it.
It had a really liquidy consistency when I tried it on the back of my hand, and to my surprise - it didn't feel sticky at all. In fact, it only took a couple of seconds before it was completely absorbed into my hand! I was quite amazed already, so after doing my usual skin care routine - I put on a very small amount, and went to bed.
The next morning, I was super impressed with the results.
What I Like:
+ As I stated before, I absolutely loved the packaging! I'm a total sucker for companies that put that little extra mile into their product's presentation. Most of the time, it'll definitely give me an extra reason to purchase it.
+ The consistency was very smooth, light and barely there. All you needed was to apply the smallest amount, since a little really does go a long way. It felt so soothing on the skin as I applied it on my face, and I could already feel my skin being moisturised.
+ It doesn't leave a sticky feeling whatsoever. In fact, it feels like you have nothing at all once your skin absorbs all the product.
+ When I woke up the next morning, my skin just looked so much healthier. It looked brighter, softer and definitely very plump and moisturised.
What I Dislike:
+ Although they did take into consideration the "hygiene" factor by including a scoop, I just find it rather impractical if it becomes a product that you use daily. After a while using the scoop does feel very tedious, and it's super time consuming. But at the same time, continually dipping my fingers into the product = not very good hygiene :/
Overall Opinion: To be honest, I really can understand why this product got such fabulous reviews in the first place. It does everything it says it's suppose to do, and although I had really high hopes for this product - I surprisingly wasn't disappointed at all. For such a great quality product, the price really isn't so bad at all. It is definitely one of my holy grail products and something that is just one of my favourite "on the go" items that I always reach for. I really recommend using it for travelling, since it's just so compact and hydrating (since travelling severely dehydrates your skin).
Even after a long day, all you need to do is wash off your make up, do your usual skin care routine and add some of this little baby - and you'll be all set for beautiful, glowing skin the next day :)
Would I Repurchase? For sure!
