Water bank Line

Laneige have different lines of skincare products that distinguish what skin concern they are targeting và the Water bank Essence_EX is just one sản phẩm in their Water ngân hàng line.

Products include: 3 types of moisturisers to fit different skin types (gel cream – combination/oily, moisture cream – normal/dry, intense cream – very dry), an eye cream, face mask, mineral skin mist & this essence.

Laneige Water bank Line

This line is extremely popular among young women across Asia and focuses on deep hydration và moisture for the skin. Asian women in particular have a weaker skin barrier than other ethnicities which means skin losing moisture more easily and becoming dry. Laneige have attempted to find a solution khổng lồ this problem through their Water ngân hàng products that feature Hydro-ion mineral water.

Natural Ion Mineral is extracted from the superfood quinoa. This mineral complex is small enough khổng lồ restore moisture by penetrating deep into the skin và strengthening the skin barrier lớn protect against more moisture loss.

What is an essence:

In Asian skincare, an essence is lượt thích a serum but it is typically of a lighter consistency và has less concentrated ingredients. It is normally used after toner and before serums to địa chỉ cửa hàng another layer of hydration.

Product Info:

The ‘EX’ is the most recent, upgraded version from the old ‘Water ngân hàng Essence’.

This essence claims khổng lồ awaken natural moisturising agents in the skin to give a smoother skin texture, relieve dry skin & provide moisturise for 24 hours.

In Korea I bought this for about 32,000 won equivalent to lớn £18/$27 but I think that might have been the discounted giảm giá khuyến mãi price since I bought so much in the store. The original is probably closer lớn £22 và the cheapest place I’ve found it online is about £25 on Ebay.

All the products in the Water bank line are identifiable through their bright blue glass packaging. It’s beautiful and luxurious looking even if it’s not the most travel friendly. This essence comes in a glass bottle with cap, containing 60ml of product dispensed through a very convenient pump. I like that the pump hole is quite small as it’s very easy to lớn control the amount of sản phẩm you need. The bottle is not fully opaque so you can see just how much hàng hóa you have left.

I think this is a very basic sản phẩm in that its main function is khổng lồ provide moisture và hydration so you won’t necessarily see such obvious physical results lượt thích you might with other skincare products. (I personally haven’t seen any difference in my skin while using this). I’m already over halfway through the bottle having used it twice a day for most of the winter, và while it’s a nice product, it’s not something I would miss if I didn’t have it in my routine.

Semi-transparent bottle so you can see how much is left.

2 pumps exactly khổng lồ cover my face & neck.

Thicker than most essences but still quite lightweight và watery when you spread it.

Absorbs completely in a few minutes leaving a dewy moisturised finish

I actually find this has a consistency more lượt thích a serum than an essence. It is certainly thicker than my Innisfree Green Tea Seed serum. I tend khổng lồ apply from lightest lớn heaviest consistency so it’s used at different stages of my routine depending on what other products I’m using.

I use 2 full pumps of this khổng lồ cover my entire face & neck. It smells fresh & lovely lượt thích most other Laneige products but might seem too heavily perfumed for some people. It has a milky, creamy texture that goes clear as you massage it in your skin. It spreads smoothly và leaves your face feeling soft & hydrated. While it has a fairly thin consistency, it takes a couple minutes to fully absorb, but creates a velvety-smooth moisture layer on đứng top of your skin. It doesn’t feel thick or heavy và you only notice it when you cảm ứng your face. When you look at your skin it does have a more moist và dewy appearance.

I have an oily prone t-zone so I vị have khổng lồ ensure its fully absorbed before applying my final moisturiser otherwise my skin can start khổng lồ feel clogged. I’m hoping to lớn finish this by spring because it just about works for me in winter. Since I lượt thích to layer up products, I feel this is a bit too moisturising and thick for an essence & wouldn’t be suitable for the summertime. I generally prefer khổng lồ apply this at night because in the morning I have less time lớn wait for it khổng lồ absorb before I move on to my moisturiser và makeup.

I think this is suitable for all skin types as Laneige says. If you have a very minimal skincare routine, oily/combination people could definitely use this both morning and night. I think it provides enough hydration to lớn work alone without a moisturiser over it. (I sometimes apply makeup straight on đứng top of this). Those with dry skin would definitely also benefit from this in conjunction with other moisturising products lượt thích the Water bank Moisture Cream. It wouldn’t be enough alone because it absorbs fairly quick and isn’t occlusive.

Overall, it’s a nice simple product if you’re looking to địa chỉ moisture back into your skin. I probably won’t repurchase this only because I like my products to have more multi-functional purposes and dry skin isn’t a concern for me right now but perhaps somewhere down the line when my skin matures I may find myself more in need of the Water bank line.
