      30

*
I have sầu a love-hate relationship with Laneige sometimes. Some products lượt thích their cream skin line work for me but other products bởi nothing. It is a big hit or miss and maybe it is the fact that a lot of their products are super lightweight and caters more towards those with normal lớn oily skin type or because it is designed for a more humid environment. Even though their best selling sleeping paông chồng doesn’t work for me at all, there is still a special place in my heart because it was one of the first-ever Korean cosmetic products I came in tương tác with. This was bachồng in the day when the internet wasn’t really a thing and online shopping did not exist. My mother heard from one of her friends that this moisturizer was amazing và she got her friends khổng lồ bring bachồng 3 jars when they went to lớn Asia. Now little old me during high school, dabbling in my mom’s makeup bag secretly and craving khổng lồ learn more about makeup & skincare, I slathered this on my face hoping my face wouldn’t be so dry. Nothing… absolutely nothing. My skin was still dry, flakey and tight. With that memory & revisiting it just recently, it was still the same thing. Now years later and two new versions being released not too long ago, I want khổng lồ see if the cica & lavender versions are any different.

Product packaging:
I actually did not get the full-sized jars but a mini kích cỡ that was a kit during the holidays of 2019. They are still available on Jolse if you are interested as well as a lot of other online retailers. I think this is a great way lớn demo out the masks khổng lồ see which one suits your skin type better.

These are the same packaging but smaller, with the color-coded jars depending on which versions you get và a twist-off cap with a lid inside khổng lồ keep everything more airtight. These jars are plastic, so it is easy lớn travel around with them.

*
Texture/ Finish:As I suspected, the original & lavender both have sầu the same texture. They are both very lightweight gels that absorb inkhổng lồ the skin very quickly & does not leave any greasy finish which is nice for people living in humid climates. As for the cica version, it is more of a thicker cream but still somewhat lightweight and again, absorbs into lớn the skin with no greasy finish. I personally like the cica one much better for my dry skin & my skin feels more protected than the original & lavender.

Original sleeping mask has their Sliptox công nghệ which helps stabilize natural evening primrose & hunja apricot extract lớn purify and clear tired skin during the day. It has hydro-ion mineral water to help the ingredients absorb better inlớn the skin during the night.

The lavender version has the same Sliptox công nghệ & same evening primrose và hunja apricot extract as well as the mineral water. The only real difference is the oải hương scent, which I’m kinda of meh about & also asking why is this necessary.

The cica version has their patent-pending Cica ingredient Forest yeast packed with soothing effects khổng lồ strengthen skin barrier during the night . It helps skin barrier strengthen during the night by moisturizing & protecting damaged skin from drying. It is also hypoallergenic 9 không lấy phí formula (free from Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Toluene., Formaldehyde Resin., Camphor., Triphenyl Phosphate (TPHP), Xylene, Paraben., Phthalate).

Effects/ Results:I already anticipated for the original formula to lớn not work for me. It is way too light & does nothing for my dry skin. I want up to my skin feeling rough và dry, but usually not tight because I layer it with other serums và essence which is always my saving grace. I did have sầu hopes that maybe the oải hương version was different, but I definitely was giving myself false hope. The oải hương one is exactly the same formula with a few ingredient differences and fragrance differences but that’s about it.

As for the cica sleeping mask that some of you guys recommended me to lớn try, I definitely liked it way better than the other two but it really wasn’t stellar or memorable. It was a good solid centella based moisturizer but that was about it. There was nothing that stood out enough for me khổng lồ say get this cream. Heck, I even think I lượt thích the Purilớn recovery cream, another centella based moisturizer that is even more lightweight, to persize better than this one và it is cheaper! I didn’t wake up to my skin feeling as dry but i didn’t really seem much “soothing” action either, so it is also meh.

Fragrance?:The original one has a very light soapy và citrus scent và it does fade after application. Smell-o-scale: 4/10 in terms of how svào it is.

Lavender version has a very light oải hương scent & I didn’t find it to irritate my skin either (thank god). Smell-o-scale: 4/10 and it fades after application.

As for the cica one, it has a very light green smell khổng lồ it but its definitely a Centella smell. Smell-o-scale: 4/10 & fades after application.

Pro:-absorbs inlớn the skin quickly-not heavy

Con:-not moisturizing enough-not really memorable

Repurchase?:Nope
