skincare from laneige

Had been using products  from shu uemura for my skincare routine for the second half of 2011. So when 2012 rolled around, I decided to try something different. Looked at the various cosmetic brands available in the mall near my home, and finally settled on Laneige. The beauty advisor at the Laneige counter suggested that I get three basic products: toner, essence and moisturizer.

After using the Laneige products for about half a year, I think I can give a quick review.

Toner: Power Essential Skin Refiner (Light) (left). This is refreshing on the skin and has a nice light scent.

Essence: Power Water Bank Essence (right). According to the Laneige website, it is 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’.  Felt and smelt like any normal moisturizer though. Anyway, this product was the first to run out and I did not repurchase. Used just the toner and moisturizer and saw no discernible difference in my skin.

Moisturizer:  Power Water Bank Gel Cream (left). Glides on smoothly and smells good as well. But I didn’t like that it came in a jar instead of say, a pump dispenser as it is less hygienic. Anyway,  whenever I used this moisturizer, my face would start to feel a bit oily again after a couple of hours. Poor oil control.

In conclusion, I think I would only repurchase the toner again. :P
