The core ingredient of Laneige is water in all consistencies, formulations, and textures. Could they be inspired by the legend of the fountain of youth? Perhaps. Even if not, it is no secret that hydration is one of the keys to having that youthful and healthy- looking skin, and this, my friends, is the main goal of Laneige. Oh, wanna know how serious they are with hydration? Laneige has been studying different kinds of water for the past 15 years to find the best kind that will be very beneficial to human skin. After studying 7000 types of water, they've come up with what they call Laneige Designer Water, the main water in all of their skin care products.
Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX is their best- selling hydrating treatment, which sells 1 tub every 30 seconds. I've looked up reviews about it online and from East to West, a majority of users are only singing praises about this thing.
I've been using this product religiously for more than 6 months already, but only got to review it now because I just experienced its total effects around 2 months ago. It took me a while to get results, but I am completely happy with it even if it took me that long. This baby has improved the overall softness, texture, feel, evenness, health, and resistance of my skin!
LANEIGE WATER SLEEPING PACK EX IN DETAIL
Just found out that this is the new and improved version. Anyway, Sleeping Pack is another type of facial mask, and it's meant to be left on your skin overnight and be rinsed out the next day. Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX promises intensive and continuous hydration overnight and gentle exfoliation to reveal a more uniform and brighter skin tone. Overtime, it improves skin's texture, appearance, and tone. Here are the ingredients:

I got the Water Sleeping Pack EX Duo Set which was priced around P2,300.00 only and comes with deluxe- sized samples of the Multiberry Yogurt Pack, Multiberry Peeling Gel, and Water Bank Essence. If you're a fan of this product or you just want to share you're amazement with it to your friend/sister/mother/aunt, wait for this set to come out again for better savings. (That is, if it comes out again! :D)

Comes with a plastic spatula. How sanitary!
The standard size, 80ml, could last you for 6 months to 1 year, depending on usage. It has been a little over 6 months since I started using it and right now, I'm already near the bottom-I'm guessing that it will last me for three to four more months since it's something that's not intended for daily use.
Water Sleeping Pack EX has this rich gel consistency and light bluish tint. It forms a watery film atop your skin that's very comfortable, cooling, and moisturizing. However, it takes a little while to be absorbed so don't apply too much-well you don't need too much anyway!
The scent is a very mild kind of citrus floral that makes you feel relaxed. Laneige advised to open the jar and sniff the product before using to melt away stress and tension. That said, it doubles as an aromatherapy product too!
LANEIGE WATER SLEEPING PACK EX IN ACTION
WORK IT: Apply pea-sized dots on your forehead, cheeks, nose, philtrum, and chin. Spread evenly.
After application, skin looks wet. It has a lil' stickiness factor to it when it's beginning to dry so again, don't apply too much. You have been warned! :D
I read some blogs saying that it's just like a more wet kind of moisturizer, but nah, it's more than that. The way I see (and feel) it, this product, after some time, divides itself: The moisturizing product settles at the bottom and a film rests on top, thus protecting moisture from evaporating. (I hope you get it!)
Next day with Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX on and After 6 months of usage
When you wake up, you'll be surprised to find out that your skin just feels and looks normal: never oily, wet, or feeling thick. Upon waking up, don't forget to wash your face with water to remove the product. What if you forgot to wash your face and just remembered to do so around afternoon or later in the day? That's okay! I did that boo-boo for so many times and I didn't get any negative reaction-the instructions pamphlet didn't say it's harmful too.
Here are the effects I've experienced and observed after waking up with the sleeping pack on:
1. Super smooth skin
2. Skin emits this natural glowing, dewiness
3. Skin looks more plump, healthier, and surface looks more even
4. Complexion looks brighter, although it didn't do a lot for my post- acne marks
Oh, I dug a photo from 6 months ago. Notice that my skin before looks 'sunken' and dull, and my skin now looks healthier and more radiant. I'd also like to mention that I rarely use moisturizer anymore for the past two months. I just use toner and proceed to makeup application, given that I'll use a liquid face base. In some cases when I forget to apply moisturizer and I'm using powder foundation, my skin still feels soft-it gets a lil' itchy, but never rough anymore.
Before, I'd have to use moisturizer so my skin won't feel itchy and tight under any kind of makeup, but things have changed when I've incorporated this product in my skin care routine: My skin now feels more normal under makeup, it doesn't look rough and tired even if I've been wearing makeup for more than 8 hours, and I get to save at least 10 minutes! Needless to say, this product could be the reason behind my skin's improved health and hydration levels. (Well- hydrated skin will persist to stay soft and healthy no matter the condition!) Oh, my oily skin became more manageable too: It gets particularly oily during summer time, but for the rest of the year, it's tamed!
It's good for all skin types-well, water is good for everyone! Best for oily skin because I could attest that it really helps fix greasy problems, and for dry skin because it gives skin a continuous supply of water. For the latter skin type, you might need to apply more of the product and frequently during the week to effectively minimize dryness. Please be advised that this product takes time to produce its effects so patience is a virtue! Take it from me-you'll be very happy with the effects afterwards!
