Hello lovelies, today I’ve decided to do a combined review for 2 bestseller Laneige products – the Laneige Water Sleeping Pack and the Snow BB Soothing Cushion.
Laneige hails from Korea and calls themselves a moisture specialist. I remember seeing their ads and their models wear a clean look, with the emphasis being moist-full skin which does not need much coverage.
Laneige Water Sleeping Pack $45 // Light gel-type texture provides intensive hydration, vitality, and brightening effect while restoring skin with deep relaxation.
The Laneige water sleeping pack is probably their most popular product in their skincare line. I bought my first ever sleeping pack from the Laneige counter in Raffles City and it cost me $45. Thought it was a pretty pricey mask! I saw it being sold on Gmarket (now Qoo10) for just $20, but I didn’t want to take the risk cause I’m not sure if they were real.
I love leave-on masks… cause I am too lazy to do a mask and then wash them off. The water sleeping pack is really convenient. Slap some on and you’re ready for bed. Wake up with awesome moisturised skin. Simple right?
What I really love about the Water Sleeping Pack is the scent. The patented Sleepscent™ helps to relax the mind and body and derive for a good sleep. This smell is really DOPE. I could just leave the bottle on and smell it for hours. It’s a good de-stresser!

The gel-like texture is cool on the skin when applied (cause I leave it in the fridge before applying!). It’s very light and fluffy but still gives you that intense hydration needed for the night time, especially when you’re sleeping in an air-conditioned room.
I usually put on a thick layer and it dries up in about half an hour while I surf the net. This is definitely something I would repurchase and I am on my third bottle already. It’s worth purchasing if you have friends buying it from Korea (at just $20 a tub) so do stock up if you get the chance!
However, I do feel that the hydration effects vary from day to day. If I was having breakouts, using this makes my skin worse sometimes but if I am having a great skin day, this doesn’t cause any irritation.
Overall, I’d still recommend this product as an affordable mask pack for frequent use.
The Laneige Snow BB Cushion $59 // New-concept Cushion BB for Whitening + Sunscreen + Sweat-proof + Soothing + Makeup Effects
Well, I got this at the Laneige counter as well, cause I needed the SA to test the colors against my face and neck to make sure the shade fits. To be honest, I can’t shop for foundations online cause there’s always the risk of the colors being off on the monitor and you end up with a totally odd shade which can’t be used.
A new-concept cushion-type BB with five active ingredients for Whitening + Sunscreen + Sweat-proof + Soothing + Makeup contained in the cushion to maximize the refreshing and soothing sensation. Every time you touch it, the air pump in the cushion contains air bubbles for thin and skin-friendly makeup.
What’s special about this pact is that the cushion is kept separated from the outside temperature (the blue separator), and this allows the cushion’s temperature to be 3 degrees lower, giving a cool sensation when applied onto the skin.

I find the coverage quite adequate for my fair (and full of red marks) skin but I do feel kind of suffocated when I apply this on cause my sweat couldn’t come through the foundation (I don’t know how else to put it but I hope you get what I mean).
I ended up with a lot of clogged pores and some breakouts on my first use and was quite wary to touch it again. Then again, I simply couldn’t put my $$ to waste and decided to give it another try, this time using less of the product and making sure I stay in a cool place & not start sweating my pants off.
Well, it worked better this time but the product didn’t live up to it’s moistfull skin claims. My skin surface was so dried out after a whole day out, I had to literally soak my face with cotton pads soaked with Bioderma to get it all off.
Based on my experience so far, I will not be repurchasing this BB cushion when I am done with the refill pack.
