As someone who prefer to slather generous layers and layers of skincare before bed, sleeping mask is not necessary for me. Although I buy sleeping mask occasionally, I always chuck them under the ‘use when remember’ category. I know, I know. I should have stop buying but whenever something new came up, I was itching to own them. Over the recent weeks I notice that I’ve been slacking on skincare at night. Yes, I became the person who skipped the night skincare routine a few days in a week. I was so sleepy by the time I’m ready for bed. Sometimes I feel guilty so either I’ll apply a thick moisturizer solely or I will apply sleeping mask. One thing good about some sleeping mask is that it is good on it’s own. Like this NEW Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. Not only that. Laneige also came out with the all-NEW Lip Sleeping Mask. Say goodbye to thick lip balm!
Water Sleeping Mask was developed based on 15 years of extensive research evolving around sleeping pack. This newly improvised product was elected as World Class Product of Korea in 2014 by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy. What’s so special about this improvised Water Sleeping Mask is the three main functions, a significant upgrade from its predecessors.
Water Sleeping Mask (RM110 / 70ml)
Laneige best-seller Water Sleeping Mask went through a series of renaming and repackaging. It was first introduced as Water Sleeping Pack back in 2002, renamed and repackaged as Water Sleeping Pack Plus in 2005, then as Water Sleeping Pack_EX in 2009, and finally this year 2015 as Water Sleeping Mask. I prefer the name now as it’s much more easier to remember and it make more sense to me now.
Purifies with SLEEP-TOX™
SLEEP-TOX™, I assumed it’s the short mention for sleep and detox is a purification technology term that restores and repairs skin damages that are caused by numerous external aggressors. Overnight, the skin will then be able to restore its condition to optimal condition in order to protect itself from another round of external environment the next day. It is called SLEEP-TOX™ because when we sleep, the skin goes through self-skin renewing and there is a “golden time” frame to boost detoxification and purification function in the skin. SLEEP-TOX™ will then activates these genes with Hunza Apricot and Evening Primrose extracts (ingredients found in the technology) to normalize and restore fatigue skin affected to it’s optimal condition.
Moisturises with MOISTURE WRAP™
MOISTURE WRAP™ is Laneige’s exclusive technology to boost skin’s absorption of active ingredients such as Hydro Ion Mineral Water, Evening Primrose Extract and Hunza Aprocot Extracts. It acts as a porous moisture film that locks-in moisture through the night. This moisturizing film are rich with moisture. It works by forming a porous moisture film to locks in moisture through the night. It’s other main function is to keep the effective ingredients of SLEEP-TOX™ stabilised within the network by continuously delivering them for 8 hours throughout the night into the skin.
Promotes Deep Sleep with SLEEPSCENT™
SLEEPSCENT™ contain patented natural fragrances ingredients such as Orange Fruit Flower, Rose, Ylang Ylang and Sandalwood Oil, exclusively for Laneige Water Sleeping Mask. This technology is said to able to relaxes the mind and body in order to promote deep sleep. The skin’s regenerative ability are strengthen by improving the quality of sleep through SLEEPSCENT™ by prolonging the REM3 and 4 stage (stages that denote deep sleep). Interestingly, I also learnt that one will take a shorter time to fall asleep and body movements during sleep are also reduced. The formula also helps to reduce skin redness. I have to say it’s quite true because my skin redness are reduced after one week of usage (3X usage in total).
I can’t remember how the old spatula looks like but I like this new spoon-type spatula, which also underwent a makeover. The new spatula is to coincide with the new packaging design and to make our life easier in scooping out the usage amount in order to improvise usage convenience. It is transparent so do store it away carefully because I find myself constantly looking for my spatula due to the transparency lol.
I notice that most of the sleeping mask available comes with cream-gel consistency. Water Sleeping Mask is not exceptional and the scent now is more friendlier to the nose, although the old version are not bad. I just prefer this new version. It is recommended to inhale the scent for 3 seconds before applying all over the face. I don’t follow the exact instruction to spread over the face from inner to outer. I just randomly massage all over my face until the entire face are fully covered 😀
Here are the Before and After. Sorry for the groggy-looking photos. I took all of the photo right after I woke up and wash my face. Laneige claimed that one would be able to see the difference with just one application and the result gets even better after a week usage (approximately 3X usage). So I decided to show you the difference of one usage and three usage 🙂 . I notice three obvious differences with using the new Laneige Water Sleeping Mask comparing to the without.
(1) Skin more hydrated. My pores are not as obvious as before as my skin are more hydrated.
(2) Redness are reduced. If you look at the Before photo, you will notice that I have a patch of redness on my right apple of the cheek. Now take a look at both of the After photo. After 1X Usage, the redness are significantly toned down and it was even more reduced after 3X Usage!
(3) Brighter, even-toned complexion. I have a problem of uneven skin tone. You might not be able to see that my face are actually brighten and more even-toned due to the natural lighting difference although all three photos are taken with the same setting, same time, same place.
One thing I like about the new Laneige Water Sleeping Mask is that you can use the mask with or without skincare underneath. Dry to very dry skin users are advised to apply the usual skincare products prior before using the mask and oily skin users can apply the sleeping mask on it’s own. I’ve actually tried both method. Although I don’t see a significant difference but I do wake up with even more bouncy, smooth and hydrated skin IF I apply my usual skincare underneath.
Lip Sleeping Mask (RM70 / 25g)
Now, this is something new and intriguing. Laneige introduces the all-new Lip Sleeping Mask as an addition to the new Water Sleeping Mask.
Lip Sleeping Mask comes in a balm-like and sticky consistency so that the mask stays put on the lips throughout the night. It has a fairly-strong sweet and fruity berry scent to it because this little pink pot are formulated with Berry Mix Complex™, which consists of eight different types of antioxidant-rich berries such as raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, blueberry, gojiberry, soapberry, cloudberry and coffee berry. Okay, that’s a lot of berries to digest LOL. With so much berries, a Super-High Pressure Extraction Technology of 1000ATM, 100MPa was used in the extraction of antioxidant in order to produce a highly concentrated antioxidant extract. This process is termed as ‘hydrothermal extraction’, where water is infiltrated into the plant cells to extract all the super-low molecular ingredients. This Berry Mix Complex™ are rich in Vitamin C and of course antioxidants to soothes dry, chapped lips.
MOISTURE WRAP™ Technology used in this mask are similar to the Water Sleeping Mask. It is also an exclusive technology by Laneige, where dense Hyaluronic Acid mineral network holding abundant moisture will form a moisturizing film wrap over the skin surface. This film locks in all the active ingredients in order to help the skin to absorb + retain moisture continuously for 8 hours through the night.
I don’t know about you but I’m loving the new Laneige packaging – matte, gradation design with colours that matches the product concept. The Lip Sleeping Mask comes with a cute dainty special rubber-tip spatula and a special pouch as well. The special spatula resemble a tear-drop shape, flat on both surface, with thinner rubber on the tip. It fits my lips perfectly, with the tip easily maneuvered into every single corner and edge of the lip line. Again, this spatula is very tiny. Don’t lose it 😀
This is exciting. Here are the Before and After. My dry, chapped lips can be daunting at times. This would be my less daunting lips but yet uncomfortable and painful. The After is amazing. A little goes a long way. It may seems hard and all waxy in the tub but once smoothen out on the lips using the spatula, the mask melts into a runnier consistency, making the application hassle-free. Since a tiny bit product is all needed for each application, this pot will last for ages! 🙂
Waterful Sharing Campaign 2015
Following the success of last year’s Waterful Sharing Campaign, Laneige is once again launching the Waterful Sharing Campaign 2015 in collaboration with Malaysian Environmental NGOs (MENGO), which will benefit six children’s homes (Rumah K.I.D.S, Rumah Amal Cahaya Tengku Ampuan Rahimah, Rumah Bakti, Rumah Kebajikan Anbu Illam, Rumah Ehsan Rawand and Rainbow Home) in Selangor. This year Laneige is targeting to raise RM60,000 through the sale of the all-new Water Sleeping Mask from 1st May to 31st July 2015. From every jar of Water Sleeping Mask sold, RM10 will go to the fund, which will be used to facilitate installation of rainwater harvesting system at these six homes.
