Review: Laneige Waterbank Eye Gel

28. June 2014

Today’s review will be on Laneige’s Waterbank Eye Gel, a gel type eyecream claiming to be extra moisturizing. Laneige has a whole skincare line named “Waterbank” for moisturizing skin. I had a couple of samples for this cream and here is the impression this eye cream left to me.


The main color of this line is blue, therefore the fullsize product comes in a blue colored jar. The fullsize contains a spatula, too, in order to be able to leave the product in the jar as hygienic as possible. I don’t know how much product is contained in each sample sachet but each sachet had enough eye cream to be used a couple of days, since you only need a tiny bit for the skin around your eyes.


This eyecream claims to be moisturizing and also vitalizing. The ingredients list is quite long, but most of them are green flaged according to COSDNA. The sample sachet contained ingredients in English, and also the directions were in English, which is great.


As to the consistency of the eye cream: it is a milky gel type cream, which reminds of a balm. Also the feeling of the gel is more like a balm, than a gel/cream. As soon as it is worked into the skin, it feels like turning into water. It feels moisturizing and refreshing on the same time, while absorbing fast into the skin. Also the moisturizing effect stays for the whole day. I had the feeling my eye area was still hydrated at the end of the day, when I applied the cream in the morning ♥  The scent is the typical scent you might know from Laneige. It is fresh and soapy, without being to strong and irritating.


All in all, I didn’t expect this cream to be such a good moisturizer, but it is! I love the effect and how the effect is still noticeable at the end of the day. If you are looking for a really good moisturizing eye cream, then I would recommend you to buy Laneige Waterbank Eye Gel. The only downside is, that it is a bit expensive, since it is from Laneige. But since one does not need a lot of eyecream per day, I think that the fullsize jar will go a long way until it is empty. I’m seriously thinking of buying the jar as soon as I have finished my other opened eyecreams. You can buy Laneige Waterbank Eye Gel at ebay for around 40 US$.

    I’m glad you find it a good product! I’ve used up two whole tubs of the face sleeping bank mask and it’s so magical on plumping up the skin overnight! I totally need to check this out!

      I love the sleeping mask, too, I had a mini jar of it and I loved the scent…I’m planning to get a fullsize, too, but I don’t know when I’ve used up my other sleeping masks XD

    This sounds really nice! I have another eye cream from Laneige, but it has a thicker/creamier texture. I think I would like the gel better!

      The eye gel is really nice, I can recommend you to try it, especially since you have Laneige now available in US….I’m so jealous XD

    Laneige is a very expensive brand. Though there are samples sold everywhere but I never really tried any. This eye cream have been in my wishlist for so long. It seems good for moisturising the under eye, I better save money for this..

      So far, it is one of my favourite eye creams I tried. I’m using Mizons snail eye cream at the moment which is nice, too, but in terms of moisture this one from Laneige is great! Thanks for reading and commenting ♥

      Did you try any of the products of their line? do you have any favourite? Thanks for reading and commenting ♥

    This sounds so interesting! I never heard of a product which goes from balm to watery. But to be honest, there is some of the weirdest textures I have ever felt in asian skin care, but I somehow love them!

    • Frl. Schnee 17. July 2014 at 22:25

      I agree. I’m always surprised how different the textures can be from product to product. Thanks for your comment ♥

    I have been looking for an eye gel cream simply to hydrate my eye area as i can see little fine lines coming out. Just wondering if this product contains alcohol and perfume? Is it ok to use on very sensitive skin?
