Review: Laniege Water Sleeping Mask

Let's just talk about for a minute how much my skin has been thriving. If you were with me through last summer it was basically like Revenge of Puberty up in here. I basically stopped wearing makeup and tried everything under the sun to get my acne under control. I'm pleased to announce that has finally happened and with that I am becoming adventurous with new products too! Now I don't normally review sample sized products because I mean it's a sample and typically you can't really judge a product from this one, but this is a special case and I couldn't resist. What I really came here to talk about today is the Laniege Water Sleeping Mask that I received from a Target Beauty Box. This is truly such a skin game changer for me that I had to come on and talk about it.

This Korean brand is fairly recently new to Target shelves but it's a very popular brand internationally. This little sample jar is 20ml while a full sized jar is 80ml and retails for $23. You can check it out here on the Target site. This is an incredibly reasonable price since you only need about a pea size to cover your whole face and this is something you apply 1-2 nights a week. I do know people who use water masks nightly though and have reported no problems.

A water sleeping mask is a Korean favorite step in nighttime skincare and it is the last product applied on your face. Basically it is a super hydrating cream that creates a barrier on a skin that locks in all the moisture so you wake up with skin that looks and feels refreshed as well as ridiculously soft. I can see why people would want to use this daily but I like to do it as a weekly treat. I feel like water masks are great for people with all skin types because no matter dry or oily, an extra punch of hydration doesn't hurt anyone.

The Laniege Water Sleeping Mask is a gel consistency and it has a faint floral smell in the jar but I don't detect it one it is on my face. It absorbs well into my skin but not fully so I can tell that the moisture barrier is there. The sleeping mask is incredibly light and doesn't rub off on my pillows and the next morning my skin is noticeable softer and brighter. There's a huge difference between nights I use this and nights that I don't and I just love products where there is that clear definition right away.

I'm excited to try out some other water sleeping masks I have in my stash thanks to Memeboxes and will definitely be purchasing a full size jar from Target once this guy is gone!

Have you tried the Laniege Water Sleeping Mask or any other water sleeping masks? What did you think?
