Dry patches gone overnight!
LANEIGE - Water Sleeping Mask I’ve been using this guy on and off for about a year but I’ve only just noticed how amazing this really is! As a healthcare worker, I wear a face mask all day for at least 8-12 hours. Under a face mask the air is usually quite hot from breathing out warm air. This tends to dry out my skin, especially around my cheek area and leaves rough dry patches which I’ve never had to deal with before. About a month ago I started applying a layer of this mask over my dry spots before bed and I noticed that by the time I woke up these spots had pretty much disappeared. During the day if my skin feels extra dry, I’ll even apply a thin layer on top before putting on my face mask. This face mask has a similar effect to barrier creams we apply in the hospital to inflamed areas to prevent environmental factors and friction against material from making it worse. Overall I think this is a great mask if you have dry cracked areas or flaky skin. It does a really good job at repairing the skin and forming a protective barrier. Love it!
Newbie Skincare Routine! Any advice?
So, i've recently had an awakening when i realized that i was slowly (yet, quickly) approaching my 30s (turning 27 in October). Figured, now is a good time to start taking care of my skin and tbh, just had my two kids and it'll feel nice to pamper myself now. I've started dipping my toes into the skincare world quite recently and have done so by watching Skincare by Hyram, Susan Yara, and reading up on all sorts of skincare junkie pages. So far, i've learned the basics and am attempting to incorporate more "serious" products (serums and treatments) into my skincare routine (which was just cleanser, toner, vit c, moisturizer, spf and the ocassional mask). First thing's first: i have oily combo skin. Not acne prone, just the ocassional pimple now and then. I also live in Ontario and have kids under two and workout 3x/week. So that pretty much tells you my state and environment. So i've pretty much laid the whole routine out out in my chart (hehe sorry, i love charts). I had to do it since it was so intimidating to begin with specialized products. I haven't used the REN or Laneige masks, or the TO retinol yet, but am going to this week. Been using the Thayer's tone, SPF and complex 15 for about 3 months now and they've been fine. Everything else has been used twice. I don't cleanse in the morning. Just the thayer's toner and the rest. My issues are probably an oily Tzone, larger pores and uneven skintone. I'd love any tips, advice or Feedback! Thx!

Dry Lips?? I Don’t Know Her!
This is my holy grail lip product! This can cure even the most chapped lips in a single night or a couple of hours! All the flavors are wonderful and the consistency isn’t too sticky! The price is great especially because the amount of product lasts a long time! This could easily be used as a daily chapstick because it is light enough, however I tend to stick to nighly use! LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask
Used this for 2 years...and it’s a yes from me!
Hey you guys! I’m Louisa and I’m here to share with you my verdict on HIGHLY RATED products! The product that I’m reviewing today is... LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask My skin type: dry, blackheads on my nose, freckles from the sun Pros: - has beta-glucan (very moisturizing and keeps your lips soft all night) -has vitamin c (brightens your skin and has anti aging benefits) -applies amazingly (feels buttery soft and melts right into your lips) -berry scent smells good and yummy Cons: -pricy ($25CAD for a lip mask is more expensive than I’d like) -has fragrance (might not be best for sensitive skin) Overall, 4/5! It’s a great product that I look forward to using every night bc it moisturizes my lips amazingly! I usually review my empties but today is an exception. I think I might as well pass down this lip mask to my grandchildren because I’ve been using this for 2 years and I’ve barely made a dent! I will be definitely be repurchasing this again...maybe I’ll have some time to run to Sephora after I drop off my grandchildren at school 😁 Coming up: Innisfree My Real squeeze mask (Follow so you won’t miss out!)

My Favorite Korean Skincare Products
🇰🇷 Korean Skincare has been gaining traction in the U.S. over the last several years and rightfully so. Korean skincare is typically affordable, effective, focused on hydration and sun protection, and several years ahead of the U.S. in trending ingredients. My combo dry skin LOVES the focus on hydration and I personally really enjoy a longer multi step k beauty routine. I typically et my k beauty products on YesStyle, Wishtrend, Amazon, or Sephora if it’s something like Laneige or Glow a Recipe. Here’s some of my favorite K Beauty products I currently have on rotation: (From top left to bottom right) 🇰🇷 Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream: A very rich, barrier replenishing moisturizer for when my skin is dry or irritated. 🇰🇷 Glow Recipe Plum Plump Serum: An antioxidant rich gel texture hyaluronic serum. I use this daily. 🇰🇷 Mauve Fantastic Ever Cool Kids Never Sleep Cream: A water cream with some loud 80s packaging that I am LIVING FOR. This is a good dupe for the Tatcha Water Cream. 🇰🇷 Then I Met You Living Cleansing Balm: A barrier replenishing cleansing balm rich in sea buckthorn oil. 🇰🇷 Dear Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream: A cream gel consistency moisturizer with blue tansy. Great for calming any inflammation. 🇰🇷 Krave Oat So Simple Water Cream: A very lightweight water cream with soothing oats. 🇰🇷 Purito Centella Green Level Safe Sun: Get 👏🏻 Hip 👏🏻 To 👏🏻 This 👏🏻 Sunscreen 👏🏻 it’s like $8 and completely invisible and weightless. This is like my fourth bottle. 🇰🇷 Then I Met You Soothing Tea Cleansing Gel: An antioxidant rich mildly exfoliating gel cleanser. I feel very so so about this. It’s fine but I wouldn’t buy again. 🇰🇷 Laneige Cream Skin Toner: A milky hydrating toner with meadow foam seed oil. 🇰🇷 Dear Klairs Supple Preparation Toner: An incredibly hydrating and plumping watery gel consistency toner. 🇰🇷 Amore Pacific Treatment Enzyme Peel: A richly foaming powder enzyme cleanser gentle enough for every day use.
truly a 5 star product?
Honestly, yes it is. LANEIGE - Cream Skin Toner & Moisturizer was made for me. I’m convinced. As I have said in previous posts, I have super dry skin. I have used other toners that make my face feel so stripped. You see, I always associated that dry, stripped feeling with being clean. But It doesn’t have to be that way! With winter coming, I knew I was going to need a little extra moisture to avoid the dreaded nose and face flaking. And I think LANEIGE is gonna do the trick! I use this product a little differently than some people because I use this at night with another moisturizer on top. This product by itself probably wouldn’t do the trick for me, but who knows! It feels so moisturizing on it own. Surprisingly so. Maybe I’ll try that out too and report back. I DO know that I like to take my time at night, and I can wear just this toner for a little while before I apply my nighttime moisturizer. Adding this to my routine has been a game changer!

Better than the laneige lip sleeping mask ?
I recently purchased the laneige lip glowy balm to see how it compares to the sleeping mask since it is a little bit cheaper. I got it in the gummy bear scent and to me it smells more like grape, it’s also purple but is completely sheer once applied. It feels a lot like the lip sleeping mask but it’s so much easier to apply and easier to travel with, another thing I like is that I know I will use the whole thing. My biggest complaint with the lip sleeping mask in the pot is that it’s endless and I know I’ll never be able to finish it before it goes bad. LANEIGE - Lip Glowy Balm

Life Saver Product For Hypersensitive Skin
The LANEIGE - Cica Sleeping Mask is a new cant live without product for me. As someone who is allergic to everything with hypersensitive skin, this product is exactly what I was looking for. I actually work in the skin care industry and am constantly trying competitive products and lab samples. This often leads to irritation or allergic reactions for me and this hypoallergenic replenishing mask takes away any redness and irritation immediately. I also love to use it over a night time exfoliating product to avoid any dryness, sensitivity and irritation in the morning. I also tried the First Aid Beauty Arnica Relief Mask because it won the CEW Best Face Mask award but I didn’t love it as much and could not stand the smell.
My Healthy Skin Saviours
All my favourites chilling together. And that sums up my daily night routine. 5 step skincare routine thats keeping my routine simple and my skin healthy. . . 1. Oil cleansing.. been using this oil cleanser that I got from @stylevana_sv for only $8 and its been doing the job really well at removing makeup and sunscreen shockingly. And emulsify really nicely. . . 2. Second Cleanse, i have loved this cleanser since I started using this and I am almost out of it. Need to get new one sooner. @holifrog . . 3. Serum. . My forever love @alliesofskin Mandelic Acid serum, honestly is the best serum i have ever tried. If i have to choose one serum for the rest of my life, this would be the one. . . 4. Sleeping Mask/ Moisturizer:- my skin love this @laneigeca cica mask.. so calming and moisturizing. Little goes a long way. . . 5. Oil :- I can’t be without my face oil ever.

July 2020 Empties
Here are the products I’ve finished in the month of July. I have a small review about each product down below along with an emoji indicating whether I plan to repurchase or not. If you guys have any additional questions about any of the products, feel free to ask them in the comments. 👍 - will repurchase 🤔 - liked but not sure about repurchasing 👎 - won’t repurchase ▶️ KEEP COOL - Soothe lotion - lightweight emulsion type moisturizer that performs like a creamy serum to keep the skin adequately moisturized and hydrated. 👍 ▶️ ISNtree - Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Gel Cream - gel cream moisturizer formulated with 5 different types of hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate the skin. One of the best gel cream I’ve ever tried. 👍 ▶️ ISNtree - Hyaluronic Acid Toner - slightly viscous toner with 3 different types of hyaluronic acid to hydrate and balance the skin. Basic no frills toner that plumps the skin. 🤔 ▶️ ISNtree - C-Niacin Toning Ampoule - skin brightening treatment that uses 69% sea buckthorn fruit extracts and 2% niacinamide. Great alternative for those who can’t tolerate traditional vitamin c serums. 🤔 ▶️ Beauty of Joseon - Calming Serum : Green Tea + Panthenol -lightweight serum that uses 76.49% green tea leaf water and 2% panthenol to hydrate and the soothe the skin. Performed really well for my skin by reducing redness and irritations. 👍 ▶️ @nichebeautylab purifying gel cleanser* - daily treatment gel cleanser that helps to regulate skin oiliness, reduce sebum production, and cleanse pores. Contains salicylic acid and willow bark extract. Wasn’t drying on the skin. 🤔 ▶️ íUNIK - Black Snail Restore Serum - snail mucin based serum that claims to help with skin brightening, skin soothing, reduction of signs of premature aging, and increased cell regeneration. Lackluster results for my liking. Essentially just a good hydrating serum. 🤔 ▶️ TROIAREUKE - AGT Hydro Essence Moisturizing Gel - viscous gel type essence that’s adheres very well to skin to condition and provide hydration. Didn’t work out well for me. Caused itching and irritations after prolonged use. 👎 ▶️ TROIAREUKE - Acsen UV Protector Essence -my top favorite sunscreen for oily skin types. Can’t recommend much since it’s kinda pricy. I’ve posted a full review of this already so feel free to check it out. 👍 ▶️ THE inkey LIST - Oat Cleansing Balm - affordable cleansing balm with colloidal oats and oat kernel oil to provide a nourishing and thorough cleanse to remove oil based impurities. It just works. 👍 ▶️ Dr.Althea - Resveratrol 345NA_Intensive Repair Cream repairitive cream with a gel cream like texture. Contains resveratrol and a ton of botanicals to help nourish, brighten, soothe, and heal the skin. 👍 ▶️ I'm from - Mugwort Essence - essence containing 100% fermented korean mugwort to hydrating and soothe inflamed, sensitive, and reactive skin. Skin benefits are shown gradually overtime with consistent use. 👍 ▶️ LANEIGE - Eye Sleeping Mask - watery gel sleeping mask to keep the under eye area hydrated and plump overnight. A nice but unnecessary product. Didn’t really do much for eye area. Too fragranced for my liking. 👎 ▶️ NEOGENLAB - Real Fresh Cleansing Stick Green Tea - two in one cleanser in a stick form that can easily cleanse the skin of both oil and water based impurities. Doesn’t strip the skin. Contains green tea and 13 botanical oils. 🤔 ▶️ THE inkey LIST - Retinol Serum - a gentle retinol serum containing retistar which is a combination of multiple actives. Helped with controlling my acne breakouts. Didn’t irritate or dry my skin out. 🤔 ▶️ KEEP COOL - Soothe Bamboo Sun Essence SPF50+ - lightweight sun essence that contains 40% bamboo water to keep the skin hydrated and soothed. Became a favorite of mines fairly quick. Already repurchased. 👍 ▶️ TROIAREUKE - Skin Complex Formula Facial Toner Spray - lightweight watery toner mist that contains a ton of botanicals to provide strong antioxidant benefits to the skin. Not sure it did much for me other than kept my skin hydrated. Didn’t irritate or break me out. 🤔

Need help to get clear skin for combination skin
Hi Cherie friends, I’ve been going through many posts in this community. They are very helpful. I’m 28 & from past 4 years I’m facing lot of issues with my skin acne , redness, breakouts, dullness, uneven skin tone. I recently started following morning & evening skin care routine since 2 months . I’m new to the skin care regime. I have lot of concerns with the break outs , redness , wrinkles , lines on forehead , dark circles , puffy eyes & red bumps on my forehead & all over. I badly need your help to clear out the acne , pores on my skin & reduce the wrinkles.

Skincare hyperpigmentation update
The second pic set is my “before” pic from June 2020 compared with last week (August 2020). Did I have a meltdown when I realized how bad my skin became after a month of using an incredibly strong topical prescription ointment with 0.5% tretinoin AND 4% hydroquinone? Yes. Yes, I did. I used that Hell Cream for hyperpigmentation and got a very intense hypopigmentation response: my skin is naturally the darker shade around the edges, not the lighter shade in the middle. The cream “bleached” my skin, essentially. And my pores remained small but clogged. But here’s how I fixed it: ￼Face wash: I oscillate between Dr Dennis Gross - Alpha Beta Pore Perfecting Cleansing Gel for acne prevention and a very plain mom-made tea tree soap. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend the Dr. Dennis Gross cleansing gel as it hasn’t done wonders but it hasn’t done anything bad, either. I’m about to swap to CeraVe and will update later. ￼Toner: at night only, I use BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE - Lotion P50 and it’s wonderful. But it’s pricey, so a great dupe (in my opinion) is The Ordinary - Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution ￼Serums: in the morning, I use The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA . At night, I use The Ordinary - Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and The Ordinary - Azelaic Acid Suspension 10% as well as DIFFERIN - DIFFERIN Acne Treatment Gel ￼Moisturizer: ! The most important part for my routine! LANEIGE - Water Bank Moisture Cream for a deep dose of hydration that lasts all day. Kubra Kay Vitamin A and E night cream is AMAZING and a new favourite for me - highly recommend! ‼️ some notes in hyperpigmentation: as my skin has settled back to normal and my skin barrier is improving, I’m re-introducing a chemical exfoliant (The Ordinary - Lactic Acid 10% + HA ) to my nighttime routine. If you are not a regular acid user, I wouldn’t recommend combing the Glycolic Acid Toner and the Lactic Acid AT ALL. One or the other. The lactic acid has added HA which is a great addition to any skincare routine. To keep my dark spots fading and my pores less congested, I rely on the chemical exfoliants and the Foreo Luna handheld tool to get all the grime off at the end of the day! If anyone has any great, gentle face cleansers they like, comment it so I can check them out! ✨🙋🏽♀️ P.S - I’m in search of a good vitamin c serum for the morning: help wanted!

HELP!! i need some products!
i have relatively clear skin except for my forehead and a couple blackheads on my nose. as you can see from my skin journey my pores are larger than normal..which i have never noticed because of my freckles. i would love to get more suggestions about what i can improve about my skincare routine, including if i should change the products i use. i have sensitive skin (ALSO IF ANYONE CAN FIGURE OUT WHAT IS HAPPENING BETWEEN MY EYEBROWS THATLL BE HELPFUL) this is my current skincare routine/what makeup products i use a lot: • CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser For Normal To Oily Skin : i feel like this helps but it makes my skin really tight and i feel i've started breaking out more on my forehead since starting it • CeraVe - Ultra-Light Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 For Normal To Oily Skin : smells kinda nasty and i feel like it makes me break out • Glossier. - Priming Moisturizer Rich Luxurious Face Cream : honestly i like this but it feels rly heavy on my face so i get kinda nervous putting it on my nose and t zone • Glossier. - Milky Jelly Cleanser : really good i just don't like how much it is- honestly kinda works the same as cerave •LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask Limited Edition-Sweet Candy : i LOVEEEE this not rly considered skincare ig •MARIO BADESCU - Mario Badescu Drying Lotion : it sometimes works • Clean&Clear - Deep Cleansing Salicylic Acid Acne Medicine Facial Toner please lmk if any of these could be damaging my skin or if you have any recommendations for my skin ❤️❤️
Help! My lips disappeared???
I’m only 21 so these pictures are 3 years apart. I know lips shrink with age but I see quite a difference. I believe it could be from lack of pigment. Does anyone have any recommendations for restoring pigmentation & for dry and cracking lips...? * LANEIGE - Lip Sleeping Mask Limited Edition-Sweet Candy does not work for me at all 😢 money is no object at this point im super sad about what’s happened to them ): thank you guys in advance

Luscious Serum Heaven
I was able to get my hands on the Laneige Hydro Essence Water Bank Serum (gifted ) and these little goblin hands are not letting go 👀 This is such a lovely, light, plumping serum which works beautifully with my crazy oily skin. Not to mention it smells DE-LIGHT-FUL. I’ve been enjoying this as a substitute for moisturizer in the mornings and layer it over moisturizer in the evening for some extra hydration. You can find it at Sephora and on the Laneige website. Questions? Leave them down below!
Hydrating creamy essence
I remember trying a sample of the LANEIGE - Water Bank Hydro Essence last year and instantly feel in love with how hydrating and nourishing it was on my skin. This is essentially a serum like essence that’s been formulated with green mineral water which has been infused with vitamin-rich kale, watercress, and beet to help boost skin hydration and prevent water loss. This has a runny fluid like milky texture that’s similar to a lightweight emulsion which quickly turns into a watery consistency as you’re applying it onto the skin. It absorbs fairly quick leaving you with a smooth natural skin finish without any tackiness. I love how plump and vibrant this makes my skin look. With only a few pumps, this hydrates and moisturizes my skin so well that I can use it alone in my morning routine and I’m set before applying sunscreen. The only downside to this is that it does contain fragrance which gives it a fresh clean scent that can be bit strong in my opinion. It does dissipate after a couple minutes which isn’t bad but I still wish there was a fragrance-free version. I can’t recommend this to everyone due to the added fragrance though. Overall, I’m glad this performed the same way as the sample I tried last year. My skin really enjoyed this essence and I would definitely recommend this to those with oily/combination skin types that aren’t sensitive to fragrance. It’ll leave your skin feeling hydrated all day!

New skincare Purchases
The Ordinary - Salicylic Acid 2% Masque honestly don’t see a huge difference. I use this on my t-zone where i get my acne the most. Specifically after doing extractions (i am aware its bad but i do it wisely), i know that doing this after extractions will help the SA penetrate my pores even better, i do feel clean after this mask, but nothing extreme. Maybe its because i dont use this religiously, but i would finish the bottle just not re-purchase. I have been using the aztec healing clay mask for over a year, and it works just as good, with more product for your money. Supergoop! - Unseen Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 40 initial review, i was not a fan. It has this weird smell, not strong-like, just plain, blunt smell that was not my liking. I also didnt like the texture, the idea of it feeling like a primer made me buy it, but the fact that i had to use a large amount for it to actually work was not a good feeling on my face. But after using it for a month now, i really enjoy it. I got over the smell, and the texture just glides onto my skin so well. It doesn’t leave my oily skin as oily. Sometimes i would just put powder in my t-zone and call it a day. No white cast, feels like nothing is on my skin. I would re-purchase. LANEIGE - Cream Skin Refiner review on my previous post.
Eczema level sensitive skincare-makeup friendly
SKIN TYPE I have sensitive dry skin, acne-prone and most sensitive to weather changes since I’m allergic to things like pollen, dust and the wiNd🙄👁👄👁. I get eczema flare ups every other week (itchy, flaky skin and inflamed) so I use prescribed corticosteroid ointments when needed. My biggest struggle would probably be closed comedones and dehydrated skin (don’t drink enough water). — most of the products I use are regularly switched out of the routine accordingly to the weather and how the skin be on the day as well as new skincare releases👀 but the products listed below have been used for at least 4months to a year and are my main🥵💓 Avène - Skin Recovery Cream ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Pros include the cream actually doing what it’s supposed to do and that is repairing the skin barrier! I use this even when my skin is cracked and inflamed as it is extremely hydrating and soothing; putting this cream on feels so good, doesn’t sting and dries down matte unlike most creams. The cream also boasts an innovative hygienic “pump” opening that when you squeeze the product out dust and fluff won’t be going back into the tube preventing bacteria growth. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Cons include the cream being quite a tHiCc boi and little bit pricey ($29 in Aus.). Bio-Oil - Bio-Oil Dry Skin Gel ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼From their site: “a combination of plant extracts and vitamins suspended in an oil base.” it’s true to their product name an oil in gel form. Pros include its scar fading properties (helped brightened skin), actually adding back some natural oils to the skin for the severely dehydrated skin helping recover the skin barrier, non-irritating and I personally feel like helps prevent moisture evaporation even when you already have layered serums. Extremely cheap and affordable also available in 3 sizes but even the smallest size 50ml lasted me for months. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Cons include that it’s literally an oil🥺 if you accidentally put too much on you can feel it in ✨your s o u l✨ LANEIGE - Cream Skin Refiner ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Pros include that it’s kind of a lightweight, milky-liquid version of Avene Skin Recovery Cream due to similar functions and purpose such as being extremely hydrating and repairs the skin barrier but this toner also is quite cooling thus soothes the skin (especially when it feels inflamed) and is a good way to prep the skin even during summer whereas the Avene may feel too heavy during hotter weather. You can also soak a cotton pad in this and use it as a mini-mask. Personally although it’s not irritating and has never caused a flare up it stung a bit on raw skin🤧, but other than that there hasn’t been any adverse effects. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼Cons include how ✨pricey✨ it is, although it’s kind of worth it full size 150ml depending on where you buy it they might charge a bit more than usual like Sephora often charging more than Yesstyle or the physical Laneige stores depending on your location. The mini size 50ml use to be $5-7AUD on Yesstyle👀

LANEIGE-Time Freeze Sleeping Mask
i love Laneige their products are always high quality in all of my experiences. their lip mask is so bomb! and would five out of five recommend. their lip balms are not bad but their not excellent i have many other lip balms that do the same job and are cheaper.
LANEIGE-Kiss Me All Day
your lips deserve their own care routine too
Everybody should show their lips some love! What else would you kiss with 😉? My lip care routine is still in the works, but here’s what I’m using right now. First, Burt’s Bees lip balm. I have so many of these and I will buy infinite more. Then the Bath and Body Works sugar rose lip scrub- it’s cheap, but it’s effective. If you need more exfoliation, you can also add the good ol’ clean toothbrush as a scrubber. At night I use Vaseline lip therapy to add some tint to my lips, and occasionally this lip mask, which I couldn’t find but I don’t like it anyway. It smells like grape Tylenol. During the day, I LOVE the Laneige grapefruit Lip Glowy Balm. I’m a sucker for grapefruit, what can I say? This stuff is amazing for your lips; they’ll feel so soft. The finish is super glossy with the tiniest tint, which is my kind of party! I would recommend all of these except the mask to show your lips a lil bit of love <3
