Laneige Water Sleeping Mask Review


laneige-water-sleeping-mask

Laneige is a branch of Amore Pacific, Korea’s largest cosmetics company, and was the first Korean brand picked up by Target. It’s quite popular in Asia and has stores in New Zealand and Canada as well as the U.S. I love Korean cleansers and was slightly familiar with the brand from having lived briefly in Korea, so I was very curious to try one of their most-recommended products, the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. Their products are based on “research into the science of water” and most utilize some form of suspended water to deliver maximum hydration. I picked this up for $21 at Target.

Beauty companies market cleansers as multi-purpose because they know it’s what consumers look for – and many of the products do genuinely contain the advertised ingredients which can brighten, firm, etc.  But in order for said ingredients to have any effect on your skin, they have to stay on the skin much longer than the average 30 seconds it takes the average user between applying and washing off.
