Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX Review

When I visited Korea last year, I remembered seeing a Laneige counter inside a posh-looking department store.  I gave it a skip as I've always thought the prices are way above the roof!  My blogger sister in Malaysia Xin emailed me on my last day in Korea asking me about Laneige prices in Korea and I nearly dashed out of the hotel room to check these out as she told me Laneige Products are good!

I event went around the Duty Free Shops looking for Laneige products but to my dismay, I went home empty handed (not really!) "Laneige" Empty-handed!

Everyone should know, if I need to tell the world a girl crush of mine, it will be and will always be Song Hye Kyo!

Adding the fact that Laneige uses my "girl" crush, I've read raves after raves from fellow beauty bloggers outside the country! 

Their world's bestseller, Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX, has reach our shores and straight to my hands!  I've tweeted about this and used this for months!  I have thought of incorporating this to my regular skincare routine and see if there's any difference!

Please keep in mind that we do have different skin type and condition, my experiences may be or may not be the same as yours :)

  1. 9 hours of intensive hydration.
  2. Overnight brightening
  3. Induces deep sleep.

  • Alcohol-free, can be used even around the eye area.
  • Woke up with non-greasy feel.
  • Brightened up the skin a bit right after application (as soon as it gets absorbed into the skin)
  • No greasy nor heavy feel.
  • Skin gets hydrated and feels supple the next day or immediately after application.
  • Price isn't bad at all!
  • No allergies nor skin irritations.
  • No anti-aging properties for girls who loves to use this and wants the extra benefit.
  • Oily skinned individuals may find it hard to adjust the first few times they apply this product as it takes a bit of time to get absorbed into the skin.
This product reminded me so much of my favorite Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Skin Relief but this one has a tiny hint of scent.  

Product is, straight out, a very good moisturizing face mask that gives a boost of moisture in "almost" an instant!

  • Always wipe off the spatula and keep it clean before next usage.
  • Do a patch test prior to usage to make sure you do not suffer from any allergic reactions to the ingredients.
  • Apply a good amount on areas that tends to dry and a thin layer on areas that doesn't need much moisture.
  • Massage onto your skin with clean hands and leave it for the whole night.  Wash your face the next day.
  • A thin layer is always best to start with so as not to overwhelm the skin with too much moisture.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who's into moisturizing masks but doesn't like the hassle of using mask sheets!
Good for normal, dry and even combination skin!

Where to purchase and how much?
At Shangri-La Plaza, TriNoma, Mall of Asia and Robinson's Place Midtown Mall for Php1,250 (approx $28.40).

I like incorporating this to my regular skin care regimen and so far, it works on the moisturizing department.  As early as now, I still haven't seen big time brightening effect but I always wake up with better-looking, moisturized and soft-to-touch skin.

What's your favorite Laneige Product/s?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!


  1. i'm using this and really loving it!!! this moisturizes the skin and doesn't cause breakouts!

  2. This is a great product - I use it Muscat!

  3. I've always known about this brand, but never really had a chance to try them because they are too expensive for me. But this particular product sounds really good.

  4. told ya laneige is the korean clinique. and since it's cheaper than clinique and korean, my money is on laneige.
    i love this product hehehe. it's slightly cheaper in HK by about 500 hahaha yun lang lilipad ka pa ng hk para maka mura ng 500 so the prices in manila is ok, all things considering, laneige philippines has a reasonable markup on the items.
    and since it's cheaper than clinique (clinique prices here) then my choice is clear. hahaha
    awwww song hye kyo, love her to bits!

  5. It's my favourite mask of all the time! I have very oily skin type and it works just great for me ;)
