Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty Box | YesStyle

23. October 2016

YesStyle is probably one of the most widely known retailers for fashion and beauty online, especially when you are looking for something from asia. They have a wide selection of KBeauty products and recently they have made a list of their Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty Products 2016. I had the chance to receive one of their beauty boxes containing their Top 10 products for testing and I would love to share my opinion with you on these products.

Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty Box | YesStyle

YesStyle is the first online retailer to globally distribute a wide range of fashion, beauty and lifestyle products from Asia. Apart from their selection of Korean beauty products you will also find Japanese and Taiwanese products in their selection. Let’s take a look at the products from their Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty Products, which were by the way packed in a beautiful pastel colored box:

Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty Box | YesStyle

The Top 10 products are very versatile and reaching from skincare to makeup products reaching from brands that are well-known and brands that have a name amongst kbeauty enthusiasts.  The selected products are from Etude House, Tonymoly, Berrisom, Laneige, Tosowoong, Beauty People, and MacQueen. Below is a picture of all the 10 products from the selection:

Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty Box | YesStyle

In my past years of asian beauty product addiction I already tested quite a lot of products and surely some of the ones you will spot here have been in my stash and under testing previously. Still, since I want to keep you updated as good as possible, I will update and rewrite some of my old reviews of the products I tested in the past with new images and maybe also with a new impression. Bur first I want to share with you a quick first impression of all the 10 products.

Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty Box | YesStyle

I’ll try to keep the products thematically, so I will start with the skincare products, which can be categorized in the masks type.

Tonymoly I’m Real Sheet Mask

Of course a Top 10 KBeauty selection needs a sheet mask. YesStyle selected the Tonymoly I’m Real Sheet Masks as part of their favorites. I received the Tonymoly I’m Real Makgeolli Mask Sheet for Skin Purification. I reviewed these masks in the past and I loved the packaging design so much! I think I also tried the Makgeolli Mask back then, but I only reviewed the lemon and the avocado mask. The avocado mask was a real hit for me back then because it made my skin feel so nourished even on the next day. You can check my previous reviews >>here<< (Tonymoly I’m Real Lemon Mask Sheet) and >>here<< (Tonymoly I’m Real Mask Sheets). I’m hoping for a similar experience with the Makgeolli Sheet Mask, but I will let you know about the details.

Etude House Collagen Eye Patch

Apart from your face you also need to take special care for your under eye area. Eye patches are my life savers after a short night in the next morning. I really love my SNP Bird’s Nest Aqua Hydrogel Eye Patches. Now I had the chance to try the Etude House Collagen Eye Patches and also here I must say that it is such a nice feeling to have eye patches. These eye patches are not made from hydrogel in contrasts to the ones from SNP. There will be a full review in future, too.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

This sleeping mask is designed for your lips to make them feel super soft and hydrated the next morning. The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask has been on my wishlist for ages and so I’m super happy to be able to review this in more detail. I’m so curious myself, but I can already tell you that I heard so many positive things about this one.

Tosowoong Blackhead & Sebum Out Nose Pack

There are two kinds of people, those who love nose stripes and those who would never use them. I love them…at least occasionally! Also, my boyfriend always uses my nose stripes for himself. I can already say that he was impressed on how much stuff he got rid of with the Tosowoong Blackhead & Sebum Out Nose Pack. Since they are black you will see almost everything which comes off…sounds gross…and it is! But it works!

Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty Box | YesStyle

Let’s now take a look at the makeup products from the Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty selection from YesStyle.

Beauty People 10 Seconds Auto Pencil Eyeliner

I received a light color for the Beauty People 10 Seconds Auto Pencil Liner and it is really pretty and versatile to use for highlighting the eyes. If I’m not mistaken I never reviewed any products from the brand Beauty People so it is time to do this as quickly as possible. Review will be upcoming :)

Etude House Color My Brow

The Etude House Color My Brow is a eyebrow coloring mascara and it was one of the early products that I bought from this Korean brand. Since then they have changed the size of the product (it is larger now) and I think they have slightly altered the packaging design, too. You can take a look at my old review >>here<< (apologies in advance for the bad and poorly written reviews back then). I want to rewrite this review and update it with the new version I received here.


Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty Box | YesStyle

Berrisom Oops My Lip Tint Pack

I already have two of the Berrisom Oops My Lip Tint Pack and now this and I can definitely say that this is one of my favorites, too! These peel of lip tints will stain your lips like hell and the color is really long-lasting. It is a bit time-consuming compared to a regular lip tint, because you have to apply it first on your lips, leave it to dry, and peel it off before you are ready, but I love them. You can read my reviews >>here<< and >>here<< for the two shades I bought myself (shade “Virgin Red” and “Sexy Red”).

MACQUEEN Creamy Lip Tint

The MACQUEEN Creamy Lip Tint comes in a super adorable tiny matte milkglass bottle which is so adorable at first sight already. I heard some good things about it and so I cannot wait to share swatches and my full review on this. The pink color looks lovely, too. Review upcoming.


Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty Box | YesStyle

Berrisom Oops Tint Cheek Cushion

The Berrisom Oops Tint Cheek Cushion has been on my wishlist aswell, especially since I’m so in love with the Oops My Lip Tint. I have a similar cushion type cheek product from Too Cool For School which I like a lot so I hope that this will be similar.

Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cover & Bright Fit SPF30 PA++

The Etude House Precious Mineral BB Creams are probably one of the most known and used BB creams. My first BB cream was from Missha and I loved it so much that apart from samples I never had a full-sized tube of any Etude House Precious Mineral BB cream. The Etude House Precious Mineral BB Cream Cover & Bright Fit SPF30 PA++ is my first one now and I already used it a couple of times and liked it quite a bit. It has more a matte finish on my drier skin, but still does not make it appear flaky. It was nice to use a BB cream out of the tube after so much cushion bb cream craze. I will definitely write a full review for this one.


Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty Box | YesStyle

As you can see the Top 10 Must-Try KBeauty Products selected by YesStyle are quite versatile. You will find almost everything here and I can confirm that some of these have already been within my favorites before, too. I’m curious to try the ones I didn’t now so far and show you my impression on these. You can get the products from YesStyle of course and you will find the links and prices below:

Review: Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Pack

22. May 2016

Recently, I was contacted by Global Interpark, an e-commerce company in Seoul, whether I would like to chose any product from their shopping mall for reviewing. I didn’t know about Interpark before, but I learnt that they are the very first company to provide e-commerce service in Korea. There are over 800,000 items listed on their website and around 5,000 items are translated focussing on K-beauty and K-pop related items. I used this opportunity and selected the Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Pack with had been on my wishlist for a long time.

Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Pack

Laneige is a Korean brand, part of the Amore Pacific Group. The brand name comes from the french word for snow which is “la neige”. The brand name reflects the beauty of young women between 24 and 32 years by focusing on water as source of life. Therefore the products design is more mature and clean, reflecting the image of moisture obtained through water. The Laneige Water Sleeping Pack is probably the more famous mask pack by Laneige, but the Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Pack does sound super delicious and  on top has a pink colored what to say more?! :D In contrast to the sleeping pack this pack has to be washed off after leaving it for a couple of minutes on your face.

Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Pack

The jar comes in a very simple cardboard box with the typical blue and white colors of Laneige. It doesn’t have many descriptions either, but inside the cardboard box you will find an instruction paper with descriptions, also in English. The Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Pack is ‘designed to nourish the skin from deep inside and leave it supple’. It contains Soghurty, a specialized fermented yoghurt which promotes collagen synthesis and enhances the defense abilities of the skin from harmful external causes, according to the description. The berryblend complex, containing berry extracts from Raspberries, Blueberries, Wolfberries, Cranberries and Strawberries, supplies the skin with antioxidants and delivers nutrition. You can find a list of all ingredients on COSDNA. There are some minor irritants in the list, so be sure to check them out beforehand.

Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Pack

There is a spatula included in the packaging, so you do not have to worry about using your fingers for spooning out the pack. It has a creamy consitency and especially a very very delicious scent. I can only say that it smells like fruit yoghirt so I was really tempted to give it a try (but I didn’t!). The color is mainly white, but with a hint of pink. Spreaded it also feels like firm yoghurt and spreads easily, without being drippy. It will stay on your face and you don’t need to worry about dripping it all over. The pack can be left on the face for 5-10 minutes and washed off with lukewarm water afterwards. The skin feels – as promised- supple and nice and nourished and up to this point I cannot  find anything negative about it.

Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Pack

The Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Pack fullfilled my expectations in every point. I think that this is a good quality wash-off maks with a delicious scent and this might be the only downside for some people who do not like scented products. I was surprised to read that the yoghurt was fermented, because I didn’t know that before, and as a lover of fermented products I’m happy to have chosen this wash off pack. It will definitely stay in my collection and be used up to its end. The Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Pack retails for 18.47 US$ from Global Interpark.

Did you try the Laneige Multiberry Yoghurt Pack?

Review: Laneige Water Bank Essence

21. February 2015


This review was in my draft for quite a long time and it is only a short one, nevertheless I would like to share it with you, since I know that some might be interested in products from the Laneige Water Bank line. This review is about a deluxe sample from Laneige’s Water Bank Essence. I reviewed the Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel a while back and it is one of my favourite eye creams in terms of hydration so far.

Laneige Water Bank Essence Laneige is a Korean brand, part of the Amore Pacific Group. The brand name comes from the french word for snow which is “la neige”. The brand name reflects the beauty of young women between 24 and 32 years by focusing on water as source of life. Therefore the products design is more mature and clean, reflecting the image of moisture obtained through water. I’m only showing pictures of the sample sized product, but the full-sized Water Bank Essence comes in a blue glass bottle and looks exactly like that mature and clean product. The deluxe sample has a simple plastic packaging in light blue and doesn’t look anything special.

Laneige Water Bank Essence

Although it is a sample product it comes in a pump dispenser like the full-sized product. The deluxe sample contains 15 ml in contrast to the 60 ml full-sized bottle. I’m always very happy about pump dispensers, since it makes the application always more easier and it is more hygienic, too. I needed two pumps from this essence each time I used it on my face. This essence can be used in the morning and in the evening after cleansing and before using your regular moisturizer and it is supposed to give your skin more and long-lasting hydration for the whole day.

Laneige Water Bank Essence The sample product doesn’t come with much description. The back side of the product contains some information in Korean, but other than this there are no more details here. You can find an English description on Laneige’s official US homepage >>here<<. Note, the essence is called serum here…I don’t know why. Also, if you buy this from Korean suppliers, there are two versions, the Water Bank Essence and the Water Bank Essence EX. The latter is the improved version of this essence and doesn’t contain alcohol as second ingredient, so I would recommend you to use the new version. The main ingredients for this moisturizing essence are Hydro Ion Mineral Water, Quinoa extract, Olive Squalane and Tilandsia Extract. You can find a list of both the Water Bank Essence and the Water Bank Essence EX ingredients >>here<<.

Laneige Water Bank Essence The Laneige Water Bank Essence is a milky, runny liquid, which can be spread easily and gives your skin a light moisturized feeling and a velvet-y finish. I really liked how the essence makes the skin feel on its own. If it absorbs it is not sticky. Moreover, it has the typical fresh and nice Laneige scent, which I liked for all the products I tried from this brand. If you have dry skin like I do I would not only rely on this essence for moisture, but also add some cream afterwards. All in all, this is a solid and nice essence and I would love to try the full-sized product in future. The downside is, that it is more expensive brand than regular drug store brands, but I say it is definitively worth a try. 60 ml retail for 46.01 US$ at W2Beauty for example. If you use my affiliate link or enter the code 088505 in the registration form you’ll receive a 5 US$ voucher, which can be used immediately for purchases over 30 US$. What is your favourite essence at the moment? Did you try any products from the Laneige Water Bank Line?

Graveyard: November and December Empties 2014

14. January 2015

Here are the last empties I’ve got for you from 2014. I also changed the design of my product graveyard cover image. Hope you like it :D I’m still not sure if this will be final though. Now, have fun reading about my emtied products for the last two months (I didn’t keep sheet masks and other masks, and also no sample sachets…it would simply be too much…and also too messy ;)

November and December Empties 2014

1. Laneige Waterbank Essence: Repurchase? Yes, if I can afford it XD

A very nice and moisturizing essence. A pitty Laneige is quite expensive, otherwise I would have bought the fullsized product already. A review is upcoming.

2. Nivea Soft Milk: Repurchase? Yes.

I bought this a couple of times and since it is cheap and locally available I would always get another one when needed.

3. Etude House Lash Perm 3 Step Volumescara: Repurchase? Yes, but I still want to try various different asian mascaras first.

A volumizing and lengthening mascara. You can turn it and change the amount of mascara on the brush by rotating in three steps. See my review >>here<<.

4. Tunemakers Original Moisture Lotion? Repurchase? Yes, but I have a lot of new toners to test first.

This water based toner has a light acid pH and not many, but good ingredients, like hylanoronic acid, honey, ceramide and collagen. If you love products with few ingredients which are natural you should check out Tunemakers. Read my review >> here <<.

5. Anatomicals sud the lot of you get lost grime body cleanser: Repurchase? No.

Nothing special about this body cleanser to be honest. The scent wasn’t spectacular either.

6. Dita von Teese Rouge Shower Gel: Repurchase? Yes!

I told you already how much I love the Dita von Teese Rouge Body Lotion and Perfume and I do love the shower gel, too. The scent also lingers quite some time on your skin and is amazing! Love it ♥

7. Lush Sugar Scrub: Repurchase? Maybe.

This scrub was really nice, but I don’t like the packaging because it has no protection for the scrub. If you do not put it in another container it will melt away in the shower as soon as it gets wet. The scent was nice though and the grains did a good scrub on my body.

8. Shiseido Ibuki Softening Lotion: Repurchase? Yes, but it is too expensive…

I really like the scent of the Ibuki line and this softening toner really softens the skin. I did like using it, but it is too expensive to be rebought atm.

9. Donginbi Donginbidam Red Gingseng Aqua Oil & Red Ginseng Aqua Pack Essence: Repurchase? Yes and No.

This set was part of Memebox Oriental Medicine and from the two products I really liked the Aqua Oil better, which was a watery and ungreasy facial oil. The essence was okay, but nothing special. I think this is more on the expensive side which is why I would not repurchase it. Other than this it was an interesting line and brand. Review is upcoming.

10. Avène Cleansing Lotion: Repurchase? No.

This mild cleansing lotion unfortunately didn’t remove makeup as I expected. If you have gentle skin you will like it, and if you don’t wear makeup you will like it, too. Other than that it is not really useful.

11. Hairich Vedacell Hair Program Shampoo: Repurchase? No.

This herbal shampoo was part of Memebox Global No. 8 and it targets hair growth and vitality, similar to the Damoae Therapy Shampoo. I liked the effects from the Damoae shampoo better and my hair was softer after washing it. If I would go for a herbal shampoo, I would go for Damoae.

12. Declaré Anti- Irritation Serum: Repurchase? No.

I was not convinced by this serum, especially compared to asian serums I tried. It was too sticky, when applied alone! But the application with included pipette in the cap was nice and the scent was pleasant, too. And it did a great job in moisturizing the skin. Read my review >> here <<.

13. D’Ran wonder Serum: Repurchase? No.

This serum is packed with great ingredients used in traditional korean and chinese medicine. I liked using it and it had a nice and calming ginseng scent. Read my review >> here <<.

14. Etude House Aloe Moistful Soothing Gel: Repurchase? Yes, or maybe another aloe gel

The Etude House aloe soothing gel comes in a convenient pump packaging, which was the reason for me to buy it. It is soothing and refreshing for face and body and perfect for warm weather. I could imagine buying another Aloe gel for summer. Read my review >> here <<.

15. MAX Clinic Caviar Massage Oil Form Cleanser: Repurchase? No.

I had high hopes for this cleanser since it sounds very luxurious, just from the name. I didn’t like the citrus scent and it was not the best oil cleanser I encountered. Read my review >> here <<.

16. Missha Vita M BB Cream Moisture: Repurchase? Maybe.

A light BB cream with a glowy finish. I love Missha BB creams, but the Perfect Cover BB is still my favourite. Read my review >> here <<. Anyways, I could not repurchase it at the moment because I have too many BB creams :D

asian cosmetics beauty review

Review: Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion No.21

15. July 2014


This is a review of a cushion sample of Laneige’s Snow BB Soothing Cushion. I was wondering previously what would be the best way to present a sample for a cushion bb and I guess that this is the answer :D This sample comes with a tiny version of a cushion and a small puff and it is the most original sample I tried until now. It even comes in a little cardboard box and looks like a shrinked full-size product. Very elegant :)


Laneige is a Korean brand, part of the Amore Pacific Group. The brand name comes from the french word for snow which is “la neige”. The brand name reflects the beauty of young women between 24 and 32 years by focusing on water as source of life. Therefore the products design is more mature and clean, reflecting the image of moisture obtained through water. Laneige was also the first brand releasing a cushion type product, which is the here described Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion. It is designed to be a 5 in 1 product and claims therefore to have whitening properties, sun protection, soothing effect, sweat-proof and long lasting. The BB cream has SPF 50 +/PA+++ and this blocks UV rays and sunlight and protects your skin from damage.

laneige_soothingcushion_2 laneige_soothingcushion_3

This cushion comes in 5 different shades: true beige (No.13), natural beige (No.21), sand beige (No.23) and brown beige (No. 31). The key ingredients are bead tree, Korean thistle and natto. Bead tree helps brightening dull skin. The extracts of Korean thistle, Sylimarins, block the melanin generation. Natto contains gamma PGA which serves as whitening booster through moisturization. The other ingredients are listed in COSDNA. Most of the are greenflagged, but there are some acne triggers, so if you have sensitive skin, keep in mind to test it first.


As I said, this is a sample of the cushion and it comes in a tiny plastic jar. Inside the jar is a cushion with the BB cream and a puff for application. It is quite cute and moreover very perfect if you carry a small purse :D I mean, the compact full-sized product is already travel friendly, since it comes with a mirror, too. On the bottom of the plastic jar you’ll find the production date (keep in mind that this is not an expiration date) and the symbol for how long it is good after opening (it says 12 months here). The sample contains 4 g of product and I could use it for more than a week.

laneige_soothingcushion_6 laneige_soothingcushion_5

The swatch on my wrist looks a bit to dark for my skin, but on my face it blends in nicely and is a good match for my natural skin tone. The finish is very natural and semi-matte. The scent of the Laneige Snow BB Soothing Cushion appeared herbal to me. It wasn’t unpleasant, though. While application with the sponge a light cooling, refreshing feeling is noticeable, too. On the bottom you’ll find a picture of my face with and without the BB cream. You can see how it covers up nicely any rednesses and evens out the skin tone.


I have the slight feeling that this cushion BB can be too dry for already dry skin. In the evening the BB cream had flaked around my nose and chin. But this can be improved by wearing a primer. I usually wear The Face Shop Primer before. Nevertheless, the finish is very natural and beautiful. I think this is the biggest advantage of all the cushion products, because you use a puff for application and in this way the excess BB cream is taken up by the puff again. For those worried about the hygiene: the puff is washable, but you have to be carefull not to squeeze it. :)

Laneige’s Cushion BB creams cost between 30 and 40 US$. You can find the Snow BB Soothing Cushion on ebay and the newer versions called Whitening and Pore Control at W2Beauty. If you use my affiliate link or enter the code 088505 in the registration form you’ll receive a 5 US$ voucher, which can be used immediately for purchases over 30 US$. I’d love to try the other cushions from Laneige, too :) Anybody tried these, too? what are your impressions?

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$.

Graveyard: January to March 2014

24. April 2014
As you can see I’m a bit late for this post, but I thought I’ll put it up anyway, since I already edited the image for it :) Here are my empties for January, Febuary and March…(I also used a bunch of samples and sheet masks which I didn’t keep).

1. TheBodyShop Strawberry Body Polish- Repurchase?Yes!
I love this showering gel with the tiny strawberry particles. It smells divine and it foams up nicely too. Plus, you have these strawberry grains for a soft peeling effect. This is the second time I bought it and there will be a time when I will repurchase this again.
2. Nivea Supreme Touch Cream Shower- Repurchase? Maybe.
I love the scent of Nivea products. This one is no exception. Other than this it is a regular showering product. I like it, I would rebuy it, but I prefer testing other shower creams/gels.
3. Lush Dream Cream Hand and Body Lotion- Repurchase? Yes!
I was in love with the scent while using it and I really liked the feeling it left behind on my skin. I think I used this jar within a week and I would definitively rebuy it (but it is quite expensive compared to other body lotions…;_;).
4. Skin79 Super BB and Super Gold BB creams – Repurchase? Maybe.
These are both nice BB creams and if I would not have so many other BB creams and if the market would not keep up making new versions, I would rebuy those because they do a quite nice job- not perfect, but nice. I reviewed these in the past (>>here<<).
5. The Face Shop Mango Seed Line – Repurchase? Yes!
I really loved using these products from the MangoSeed line. If you are interested read my review >>here<<. I want to repurchase these for winter, when my skin is in need of a lot of moisture.
6. Great Length Daily Moisture Shampoo – Repurchase? No.
This Shampoo did not overwhelm me. It was not even giving me the feeling of having more moisturized hair, so I wouldn’t repurchase it.
7. Laneige Water Sleeping Pack – Repurchase? Yes.
I loved the scent, I loved the effect and there is nothing more to say. See my old review on it >>here<<.
8. Missha M Perfect Cover BB cream – Repurchase? Yes.
This is my last hoarded tube of Missha’s Perfect cover BB ;_;. I love this cream, it works super well with me, it did improve my skin so much during the first year I used it. I would always repurchase this BB cream…but I have o get rid of all the other BB creams I hoarded first ;_;  See my old review >>here<<.
Did you try any of these?
I’ll try to do the next empty post earlier than after 3 months :D Hope I can keep up to my words now :D



Review: Laneige Water Sleeping Pack

26. March 2013
Hello ♥
As you might have read, I purchased a sample-sized jar of  Laneige Water Sleeping Pack with my previous ebay haul. I’m still looking for a good night cream and until now I just used the same moisturizing creams I used during daytime in the night. I have the feeling that I should change this habit soon and put on some more nourishing creams during the night.
Now, I tested  Laneige Water Sleeping Pack, a gel-cream to use one to two times a week during night.

Here is the description from the official site of Laneige:

Light gel-type texture provides intensive hydration, vitality, and brightening effect while restoring skin with deep relaxation.
Product benefits: 
Night time skin transmission (permeability) shows higher rate than the one in the day time.
Applying it right before sleep time, the best state for the skin transmission according to the skin circadian rhythm, maximizes the efficiency of overnight water supply.
The function of skin remarkably declines in the night time. Enriched with Beta-glucan, Water Sleeping Pack_EX deeply hydrates fatigue and dry skin while Ceramide SLN formula strengthens the skin barrier.
With containing the Snow Water, it helps to keep your skin look more crystal clear and vitalized.
– Antioxidant effect of Hunza Apricot Extracts helps brighten skin tone evenly by removing harmful oxygen and purifying skin.
– Recovering from Chestnuts promotes turnovers of horny layers to remove dead cells away for vigorous water supply and sleek skin texture. 
– An aromatic essence compound exclusively developed by AMOREPACIFIC, Sleepscent™(Patent application No. 10-2009-0043726), helps to relax your mind and body and derive for a good sleep. A good sleep effect allowing sufficient relaxation eventually reinforces skin restoration for healthier skin condition. Essential oils from Orange Flower, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Sandal Wood etc. are contained in the Sleepscent™. 
– Light gel-type texture without stickiness but moisture leaves you a comfortable sleep.
How to use:
1. In the evening, follow the face relaxing massage after applying skin refiner and emulsion after face wash.

Everybody sensitive to scents can stop reading here, because this pack has a noticable scent. Laneige calls it “Sleepscent”. It’s a flowery, calming scent that I personally like a lot. I got used to the fresh scent of Missha Super Aqua Marine Stem Cell Cream that I use day and night, but I like Laneige’s scent a lot better. The gel-cream structure of the pack cools the skin while applied and absorbs quickly into the skin without making it greasy or oily. That’s quite important for me, if I consider to use it during night, since I don’t want to have a greasy pillow next morning :D
Honestly, I’m not sure if the “Sleepscent” is the reason why I fell asleep soon, or it was just me being so tired XD but for me this scent is kind of calming. Nevertheless, I couldn’t see any skin brightening effects, just my skin felt moisturized and soft the next day. All together I would say it is a nice alternative in the night care routine. Anybody interested should consider buying a sample-sized jar containing 20 ml for about 5 to 6 US$. The full-sized jar contains 80 ml and costs US$26.99 at cosmetic-love for example.

I joined several blogger networking sites recently. Since GFC seems to end soon, I hope I provided enough alternatives for everybody interested in following my blog. Just have a look at my sidebars :) Or if you know any important networks I missed don’t hesitate and write a comment ♥
