When my mom was in Hong Kong last year, she brought back some skincare products from the LANEIGE line. LANEIGE is a Korean skincare line. The name means “snow” in French. LANEIGE studies different kinds of water and incorporate it into their skincare products that provide long lasting hydration.
My favourite is the Water Bank Essence (the blue bottle on the right.) This is a moisturizer that can be used day and night. It is also one of the top 3 global sellers, and I do not doubt that! I’ve been using this for a while and it takes forever to finish. It is extremely hydrating and my skin absorbs this product extremely quickly.
Product Benefits (from LANEIGE)
– A 24-hour long-lasting moisture essence that contains mineral water for skin regeneration and Water Pump System for moisture circulation to safeguard skin moisture and hold it in to leave the skin moisturized and smooth.
– Instantly dampens the skin with ample moisture and forms a natural moisture barrier on skin surface to protect the moisture that is in the skin.
– Contains chestnut extracts and seaweed extracts to enhance keratin turnover to fight roughness and energizes the skin for a smooth and healthy texture.

This is one of my favourite all time moisturizers! It can be purchased via online from SASA, or the SASA branch here (Aberdeen Centre/Metrotown) but it is a lot cheaper if it is purchased from Hong Kong’s SASA.
The next item that I want to showcase is LANEIGE’s Strawberry Yogurt Pack.
I absolutely hate yogurt, but I love this (although this is not to be eaten!) This is a a great hydrating mask for all skin types. I love layering this on my nose when it gets dry after cleansing it. It’s a light, creamy, and a bit runny- and it’s very easy to spread out. I use this approximately 1-2 times a week (or whenever I remember). I use a bit more than a coin sized amount, since I love layering this over my skin. I don’t break out or anything from it, and I let it rest on my face for 15- 20 minutes.
I’m not sure if it makes my skin bouncier or whatnot in the long term, but after one use, I feel more refreshed and my skin looks brighter and more supple! Unfortunately, I don’t think LANEIGE sells this product anymore, because I couldn’t find information on its website. This product can only be bought via online shopping like amazon or yesstyle.
If you are looking for foreign cosmetics (unless you reside in Asia, so this would not be foreign) LANEIGE is a great brand that gives good hydration. However, it is more expensive to buy it in North America, so I would have to stock up when I or my mom go back to Hong Kong.
