Empty - LANEIGE : Water Bank Moisture Cream
Claims: A rich cream powered by antioxidants + concentrated green mineral water. 💦 *other ingredients to highlight: - Brussel sprouts - artichoke - Lima bean First off, I purchased this moisturizer back in December and just finished it this past week - longevity 10/10. I used this am + pm with and without adding serums and it quickly became a staple. For my combo/acne prone skin it provided just the right amount of hydration and never felt greasy. Quickly hydrated dry/scabbed areas without clogging pores *a blessing*. I will say it does take a good 5-8 minutes for this product to fully soak into the skin - if you prefer something more fast absorbing go for the gel version of this cream. It does have a scent which I luckily did not react adversely to, however if you are most sensitive to fragrance I would suggest perhaps not using this product. I’ve seen quite a few reviews where people hate on the scent of this cream and find it overbearing, I personally find it just fine/subtle. Would I repurchase? Yes. At $50CAD it is on the more expensive side of things but simply for how long it lasted I think it is worth every penny. ⚖️ If you’ve tried this cream as well please let me know your thoughts!!!! 🥰
LANEIGE-Water Bank Moisture Cream
TOP 3 FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN
1. BLUME - Meltdown Oil for Acne-Prone Skin wow. Wow. Wow. She’s great. I use this product as a spot treatment directly on active spots. Also on budding cystic acne she breaks it down pretty quickly (1-3days it’s GONE). I’ve seen others mix in with moisturizer - my skin needs to soak this product in separately in order to actually gain the benefits of a moisturizer afterwards. I use this twice ++++ daily and I have NOT burned/over dried. Highly suggest if you have acne prone skin/combo/mild cystic acne like myself. The scent/colour is purely a result of the natural oils inside* 2. The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% THE BEST VIT C serum I have tried. I mix this in with a moisturizer in the morning/evening and damn what a glow getter. I’m on my second lil bottle and will continue to repurchase as not only the price point (which is a bargain at $10) but the very real benefits are astounding. Again, doesn’t dry me out. Helps immensely with uneven skin tone, REDNESS, dark spots/lifting acne scars. You will see results over time, remember exfoliating serums/products take weeks!! Just a few drops will do!! 3. The Ordinary - Retinol 0.2% in Squalane This was my first time introducing a retinol to my regime (hence the very low %, if you’re beginning I suggest this). A game changer. As I’ve reached a point with my acne where I feel it’s relatively under control (knock on wood) I felt I could begin a retinol and not fear the wrath of burnt broken skin. I have deep set wrinkles on my forehead/crows feet (thank u astigmatism) and use this product 1-2 times a week exclusively at NIGHT depending on how my acne is doing. My face does have a slight warmth to it directly after use but I promise it is not a slow burning of your skin. It is simply the retinol doing its job and driving blood to the surface for collagen production/cell turnover. This is another product where results take weeks to become visible but like anything skincare related, it takes its sweet time. These are my HOLY GRAIL products. My skin simply cannot survive without them. I hope some of the info was helpful/informative!!!
