Nokie’s Review:

This is one of my favorite sleeping masks ever!!! I didn’t know what a sleeping mask was and I had to do tons of research about it. Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX had such high ratings and cosmetic-love.com had it on sale at the time, such perfect timing! I’ve been using the sleeping mask for over a year and I LOVE IT! After the first use, my face was glowing the next morning. My skin was bright, soft, hydrated and again… GLOWING!!!

My skin is usually sensitive to ingredients that contain Dimethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane etc, anything that’s from silicone base but the sleeping mask did not make me break out! I was really surprised that I didn’t break out from their essential oils which include orange flower, rose, ylang ylang, sandalwoods, etc…

The product itself comes in a blue jar and a small spatula. The small spatula helps scoop the product without contaminating the rest of the products in the jar. Just make sure to wash the spatula every use to avoid germs! The color and texture is light blue and gel type consistency. The product absorbs quickly into the skin and once absorbed it, it feels cool and soft. It contains sleepscent which gives it the coolness and refreshing feelings. I really like this product because its water base which helps hydrates the skins!

I noticed the ingredients are a bit different from Target – USA compared to the product from Korea. Perhaps it’s because the one from Target – USA is just ‘Water Sleeping Pack’ while the product from Korea, which is Water Sleeping Pack_EX. Regardless of the different ingredients and the name, I don’t see any difference from my skin. It still glows the next day. Perhaps others might experience differently but for me, it was fine and I will continue to use this as part of my skin care routine.

Pros:
For all skin type
Moisturizing
Skin hydration
Spatula
Parabens - Free
Alcohol - Free

Cons:
Mid-end price
Fragrances
Essential oils
Silicone-base Ingredients

Bottom Line: This product can be expensive for a sleeping mask. However, little can go a long way; it’s definitely worth a try!  For me, the ingredients which included some silicones and fragrance did not irritate my skin but the fragrance and essential oils can cause break out for people with extremely sensitive skin. The product does the job for me. It hydrates my skin and help repair it while sleeping, most importantly it makes my face glows the next day! Again, this is one of favorite from Laneige products and I will repurchase so I can keep it in skin care routine. I am trying out other brands and I’ll have reviews for them soon!
