Laneige comes from Korean cosmetic giant, Amorepacific—the same makers of well-loved beauty brands like Etude House, InnisFree, Lolita Lempicka and Annick Goutal. Established in 1945, it holds its headquarters in Youngsan-Gu, South Korea. Laneige is French for “the snow” and products are developed towards similar characteristic ideals—crystal clear, dewy and vibrant. By harnessing the power of water through science, Laneige products revolve around achieving a youthful glow through skincare and skincare cosmetics.

Extra Hydrating :)

I was able to try a sample of this product. At first application, this product feels so hydrating and does not cause any breakout. It also has a subtle and soothing scent. I can't explain further its long term effects because I only used it for a week. Knowing the brand, this product could deliver positive results in the long run.

So Hydrating

I love how laneige is soooo true to its claims. I think each one of us wants that dewey and fresh look koreans have, which is the reason why were all here trying out their product-- Laneige. I have very sensitive skin, at first, this did not react much to my sensitive skin..but my pimples kept apprearing. Although, I love how when I wake up in the morning, the first thing i see is a bright and dewy face. It seems as if i got so much sleep. I would recommend this to those who have dry skin!

I onyl got a sample of this Laneige Water Bank Essence when I purchased my cushion foundation some time ago. I managed to finish all my samples and I think I like this a lot. If not for the hefty price tag, I might have gotten the full size bottle immediately. It is very hydrating.

Good line from a trusted Korean brand

I got the Laneige Water Bank line samples before from a huge korean beauty products haul online. I remember liking this because it was so moisturizing but I find them a bit expensive if I'll just use it for hydration purposes only since I also have moisturizers from other korean brands that also deliver results. I guess this is better for dry to normal skin and the ingredients makes a good reason why these are expensive.
