Review: Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX

. Hello~ Here is another Laneige review - The Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX!

 The Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX is one of Laneige’s most popular and renowned products. They used to produce the Water Sleeping Pack, but they have remodelled and changed the whole product, renaming it with a _EX.

What is it? (Taken from the Laneige website):
The Sleeping pack is a light gel-like mask which provides intensive hydration, vitality, and brightening effect while restoring skin with deep relaxation.
Suits all skin types.

I purchased it for $22 on The price ranges from $18 to $27 online. Australia doesn’t have an AMORE store, which is Laneige’s corporation.

The product is encased by a sturdy plastic light blue tub, with a twist on cap. I prefer squeeze tubes for hygiene purposes, but they provide a laneige-engraved transparent spatula for you to use. Extra thumbs up for thinking ahead!

How to use:
Using the provided spatula, scoop a 1.5cmx1.5cm amount. Apply it onto your skin and slowly work it until it is evenly distributed. Wait for it to absorb before going to bed. After 8 hours (or however long your sleeping time is), rinse off using lukewarm water. Pat dry and continue with your daily skincare routine. I use this around once a week, feel free to use it twice a week.
The Laneige website actually recommends using 2.5cmx2.5cm, but I find that that is not needed. There is also a step by step facial massage lesson on their website, go check it out!

Sleeping packs are popular because they are recognised for their major hydration properties. Brands like Skinfood, Skin79, Etude House, The Face Shop and Nature Republic have all produced a Sleeping Pack. Laneige’s is among the most bought and sought after. A sleeping pack is a mask you wear to sleep, which is marketed for use during your skin’s most important rejuvenating time. The recommended duration of use is 8 hours.
I quite like the Laneige Sleeping pack since it doesn’t make my skin oily and leaves my face supple and hydrated. Skin is brighter and more refreshed after a goodnight sleep. The mask didn’t break me out and my skin was less inflamed. Extra points for its calming properties! The Laneige Sleeping Pack Ex also has a special property which helps enhance your sleeping experience, the AMOREPACIFIC, Sleepscent™. The scent produced by AMORE helps relaxes your mind and body for a good sleep. The smell is not fairly strong, or light, but is quite pleasantly for me (It smells a bit like flowers). The gel consistency is not sticky and won’t leave residue on your pillow. I do recommend you apply it at least 15 minutes before sleeping because it takes a bit of time for it to melt into your skin. It didn’t break me out and my skin was less inflamed. Extra points for its calming properties!

                                                                        I give it 4.1/5!
                          I've also reviewed the Multi Cleanser and Power Essential Skin Refiner .
