Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask





Introduction

Last October when the BFF and I were in Seoul, we walked around the entire Myeongdong to search for this lip sleeping mask but we were told that it was sold out everywhere. It was part of the sleeping mask range from Laneige which was extremely popular. In the end, we found it at Changi Airport’s duty free haha! We bought it at around $21, a $6 savings from local stores.

Packaging

The bottle itself is matte frosted and designed in an ombre shade of pink. The nifty bottle is lightweight enough to be carried around during staycations or while traveling.

Application

The mask comes with a tiny spatula which is made with a rubber-like material. While it is extremely useful for hygiene purposes, I find it more convenient if I were to just dip my finger into the bottle to pick up the mask. More so when I just want to quickly finish my beauty regime after a long day.

Texture

The mask itself is waxy and jelly-like, almost like pudding. Application was a breeze as it melts upon touch when I tried to apply it on my lips using my fingers.

After Thoughts

I own lots of lip balm but this is by far my favorite product that functions way better than just a lip balm. Sometimes I would leave it on overnight and my lips still feels extremely moisturized the next day. This is like the holy grail for people who experience chapped lips all the time, like myself. I have to say that I cannot go to bed without applying this. Let’s hope for more luscious looking lips! bigsmile

Tahpre is a Korean brand that is relatively unheard of. It was launched here last November and I am sure you will fall in love with it after seeing their pretty vintage pin-up packaging which reminds me of Benefit! smile Here is their Festive Collection which I won through a giveaway on their Facebook page. Simple, cheeky and sexy looking.

It contains Polyglutamic Acid, a new remarkably potent hydrating compound extracted from soybeans with effective moisturising, anti-wrinkle, brightening and nourishing capabilities. Simply pour some of the toner on cotton pads and gently apply them on your face. It feels pleasant when there are hints of lavender, peppermint, chamomile and rosemary in the product.


The Victory a.k.a. Skin Lotion (S$34.90) is an all in one toner, moisturizer, whitening and nourishing lotion. If you only have time to use one product, this is it! It contains Hyaluronic Acid that provides adequate moisturising properties and Vitamin B which slows down skin ageing, smoothens skin and diminishes wrinkles as well as lightens pigmentation.

Silk Underwear a.k.a. Hydration Cream (S$51.90) is an instantaneous hydration and smoothening cream. This has to be applied after Mind Reader to boost the effect of both products. It has beeswax content which forms a smooth protective layer over the skin, keeping the dirt out while locking moisture in. Also contains Vitamin B, organic oils, licorice root extract and aloe vera leaf juice extract.


Dream Cream a.k.a. Peptide Cream (S$65.90) is like botox in cream form. A product to combat the aging process, it contains Hyaluronic Acid, beeswax, organic natural oils and a special ingredient called Adensine which is good for crows feet and forehead wrinkles. Apply this cream only on areas that require firming.
