Skin Care at Night

I want to share my nightly skin care regimen. I've tried so many skin care products out there for my face to use at night but failed. Either I will have those bumps on my face or my face will turn really oily. I was so desperate to try every single products out there and found LANEIGE skin care line. This product is well known in South Korea. I gave it a go after explaining it to the saleslady my skin condition. I have a combination skin. Every summer, my skin will be oily and when winter hits, I get these dry patches on my face.. gross! So I finally made the purchase and I'm really glad I did. I've been using the LANEIGE skin care for awhile now. 

From left to right: Laneige Power Essential Skin Refiner_EX, Laneige Balancing Emulsion 1_EX, Laneige Water Bank Essence_EX, Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX, Laneige Water Bank Cream 1_EX
1. After cleansing, I saturate the cotton with this onto my clean face. I love how it smells like. :)

Product Benefits: 

- Removes dried keratin and purifies the skin for clear and transparent skin.
- Bio Dusali, extracted from fermented seaweed with strong energy of life, supplies energy to the skin and promotes keratin turnover, while the Hyacinth extracts purify the skin from heavy metal, smog, and other harmful materials to leave the skin moist and transparent.
- Exfoliating enzymes gently remove the dead skin cells with less irritation. Skin-nourishing royal jelly extracts and sugar cane extracts refine dry and rough skin for moist and healthy skin.



2. After applying the refiner, I apply this on my face. 

Product Benefits:

- Hydro balancing emulsion for dry and rough skin to keep soft and transparent.
- Bio Dusali, extracted from fermented seaweed with strong energy of life, supplies energy to the skin and promotes keratin turnover, while the Hyacinth extracts purify the skin from heavy metal, smog, and other harmful materials to leave the skin moist and transparent.
- Jojoba oil, similar to the moisture barrier of the skin, and royal jelly, rich in nutrition, effectively moisturizes dry skin.





3. Then after step 2, I apply the Water Bank Essence. (Around a hazel-nut sized amount)

Product Benefits:

- A 24-hour long-lasting moisture essence that contains mineral water for skin regeneration and Water Pump System for moisture circulation to safeguard skin moisture and hold it in to leave the skin moisturized and smooth.

- Instantly dampens the skin with ample moisture and forms a natural moisture barrier on skin surface to protect the moisture that is in the skin.

- Contains chestnut extracts and seaweed extracts to enhance keratin turnover to fight roughness and energizes the skin for a smooth and healthy texture.


4. After the essence, I apply this which is the last step. (hazel-nut sized amount too)

Product Benefits:

- A 24-hour long-lasting moisture cream with a strong hydrating effect and a rich texture to refine a rough skin into a smooth and shiny skin.

- Contains mineral water for skin regeneration and Water Pump System for a moisture circulation to safeguard skin moisture and hold it in to leave the skin moisturized and smooth.

- Contains grape seed oil and mango seed oil with anti-oxidant and soothing properties to emulsify the skin and supply nutrition and energy.


Twice a week I use the Laneige Water Sleeping Pack:


After applying the refiner and emulsion, I will skip the other steps to put this. You can use it once or twice a week. It depends on how dry your skin is. After taking the appropriate amount, I mark my nose, cheeks, chin, and forehead, then gently massage it on my face then working towards my neck. 


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.

- Recoverine 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.

That's all! I know this is a multi-step skin regimen but it works for me. Now, I actually have the courage to try something else like the Shiseido White Lucent skin care. I love the sample that was given to me by my friend, which is the Shiseido White Lucent Brightening Balance Softener.

The Laneige Basic Skin Care makes my skin very soft and smooth. No more oily face and dry patches during the winter. :)

Have you guys tried any LANEIGE skin care products? Let me know what you think about it.
