[REVIEW] LANEIGE EYE SLEEPING MASK

 

 

I’m sure most of us know what eye creams, eye patches, and eye masks are and some of us use them but have you ever heard of an eye sleeping mask before? Laneige is well known for its sleeping skincare range. They already have their original sleeping mask, lip sleeping mask and now… eye sleeping mask!

Now that it’s springtime where I am, my eyes are heavily itchy and irritated from all the pollen in the air and my sleeping patterns are not exactly the greatest (but I’m working on it, ok?) so I definitely was intrigued by this product. Thank you so much to the Jolse team for gifting me this product to try out and review. Please be sure to check out their online store for fantastic deals and products. Their mega deals have products that start at 50 cents and also, they offer free shipping worldwide.

25 ml ~ price may vary between $30 ~ $44

My thoughts

Initially, I found the applicator really chunky at first when I pulled it out of the container, however, as I used it more and more I got used to it. I also did not understand why the product was in this kind of container because how exactly do you even get the product at the very bottom out? I know I have not reached the bottom yet but these are several concerns I noticed right off the right that I want you all to keep in mind.

Overall:

  • Texture: 5/5 – This is the original sleeping mask’s sister but a more lightweight feeling. I would describe this texture like a water-based gel and it spreads really nicely on the skin. You will notice that it will dry up into a slightly tacky consistency but it’s not uncomfortable and if you layer your skincare products on top, you’re likely to not even feel it.
  • Scent: 4/5 – No scent. Even though it says there is fragrance at the very bottom of the ingredient list, I do not smell anything. Which is nice because I find my eye area quite sensitive and I’m not going to take my chances applying products that have fragrance (irritant) under it. I’m also very milia-prone under the eyes so I have to take precautions using any sort of eye product.
  • Price: 3/5 – Price will vary where you purchase this from however I found it relatively expensive at Sephora. If you’re interested in trying this, I would recommend you to purchase it off Jolse because it’s a fantastic k-beauty shop and everything is a lot more affordable than most retailers!
    Performance: 5/5 – It was a very pleasant experience, I would definitely recommend this to those who suffer from puffy eyes because this really does the trick and does exactly what it claims to do. Like I said before, I am milia-prone so a lot of eye products out in the market don’t always work for it. I’m very thankful that this did not give me any milia and I found it really lightweight where my skin could breathe.
  • Packaging: 3/5 – Eh. It looks aesthetically pretty because of the frosted glass packaging give it’s that extra fancy appearance to it but I’m still questioning why they ended up choosing this sort of packaging because it’s just not sanitary by any means and it’s weird! How do you even get the product out from the bottom? shake it? hold it upside down?
  • Overall: 4/5 – I like it! For some reason, I think I may repurchase it simply because I enjoyed the product however I do hope by then that they decide to change up the packaging to be more hygienic. Overall, I’m pretty pleased with the results it has given me. The skin under my eyes feels refreshed, plumped and as a matter of fact, I found it even brighter!
