  • I’ve used 3 Laneige Skin and Makeup bestsellers and can’t put them down.
  • Laneige’s water-based skin products work great with my oily/combination skin.
  • You can find products specifically for your skin type on the Laneige website.

Every year I go to Sephora to choose my free birthday present. If you’re part of Sephora’s Beauty Insider, you can choose between certain makeup or skincare products as a free birthday gift.

Last year, I picked three of Laneige’s bestsellers: Water Bank Moisturizer, Water Sleep Mask, and Lip Sleep Mask. I started using these products in October and they have become an integral part of my daily routine now.

Laneige is a Korean skin and makeup brand that believes water is the best recipe for hydrated, healthy skin. Its products consist of hydro-ionized mineral water, green mineral water and white tea leaf water.

Keep scrolling to read my thoughts on Laneige’s bestsellers after using them daily for three months.

I don’t usually buy skincare products because of my sensitive skin, so I started out safely using Laneige Lip Sleep Mask, not just at night but throughout the day. I really liked how it left my lips soft, hydrated and shiny. This small jar contains 0.7 ounces of product and consists of hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and antioxidants.

I decided to try the water bank moisturizer next. I fell in love with the lightweight formula of the cream and its subtle fresh scent. It also left my oily/combination skin hydrated all day.

The key ingredients in the moisturizer are hyaluronic acid and green mineral water. As described on Laneige’s website, the product’s formula “extracts to help strengthen the skin’s moisture barrier.”

After having a positive reaction to the water bank moisturizer, I decided to try the water sleeping mask. Laneige describes the mask as “a hydrating gel mask that absorbs quickly while you sleep.”

Due to the watery, gel-like texture of the sleeping mask, a little is enough.

After applying the mask on my face, my skin is immediately hydrated. It’s a once or twice a week application and comes with 2.3 ounces of product, which is the perfect amount to tide you over for a while.

The bottom line

After using three of Laniege’s bestselling products for three months, my lips are hydrated and my skin is hydrated and glowing. I feel like I got a fair amount of product per jar, and they all last me from October to February. My favorite products are the lip sleep mask and the water bank moisturizer, so I plan to stock up on more.

If you are looking for a simple and hydrating skincare routine, I recommend using Laneige products. If you are unsure which ones to choose, the website recommends products based on your skin concerns. You can buy them on the official Laneige website and on Sephora.
