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.

Bit pricey...

I bought a whole set of Laneige White Plus and I was expecting some changes on my skin considering its high price. After using up all the products, I didn't see much changes with my complexion. It even made my skin break out for several times. It serves well as a moisturizer but I know there are other less pricey products out there that are more effective.

I bought this and the White Plus Renew Skin Refiner from Korea. I finished the essence before the refiner, which was a little annoying, when I buy in sets I expect them to all finish at the same time. But the essence moisturises my face, though I can't say that it really helped brighten my skin. I have used many other Korean skin products, and I prefer Benton and CosRX and even Innisfree to this brand, because they actually make a difference on my skin. What I did notice is that it didn't irritate my skin, which was a good thing; it just didn't make my skin better.

I didn't see the difference

I absolutely love Laneige skincare, but this one simply didn't impress me. I finished up the bottle, which only lasted for a little over a month, but I don't see much difference. I was actually hoping it would even out my skintone or lighten the dark spots but it didn't. At least it didn't break me out.
