LANEIGE Water Bank Essence [review]

Hello everyone! Sorry for lack of update last week x_x I was in a short break to revive my blogging mood and I was kinda frustrated due to pile of work in office (I watched "Yong Pal" to refresh my mind a bit. It's a good Korean drama! I just finished the Eps 8 :p anyone watch it too?). Finally I'm coming back with another skin care review for you guys!

This is my first time trying a moisturizer from Laneige. For someone who has normal-combination skin, I always try my best to maintain my skin moisture as I often work near Air Conditioner for more than 8 hours a day. So that I'm afraid my skin somehow will lose its natural moisture. Few weeks ago finally I got a chance to try this Laneige Water Bank Essence :D Let's jump into the real review!

1. Dispense appropriate amount (0.3ml) after using the emulsion
2. Gently spread from the center of the face towards the contours
3. Cover the entire face with both hands to enhance penetration

In my case, because I don't have their emulsion, I use this right after I cleansed and toned my skin :)
And it works great as well!

Btw sorry I have to cover up the pump with hearts because its pump reflected me in unintentionally squat position when I was capturing these photos; and it's so not appealing. LOL
Texture & Scent
This essence has light and mild texture. It has milky color at first, but it will turns into transparent once you rub it. It also has subtle scent that doesn't bother me at all. Anyway, I love the pump :D easy to use, and never spill-out nor exceed my skin needs. Usually I only need to pump twice for whole face and neck.

If I use this essence in single use, this essence could adsorbs into my skin well and relatively fast. It barely leave sticky feeling behind ^_^ After tried this essence for almost a month, I could say that this essence is one of the best moisturizers in the market! ♥♥ It moisturizes my skin nicely, while keeping its elasticity and smoothness.
Ever since I started to use this essence, I almost never experience dry and patchy skin again ^.^

  1. bagus nih buat yang punya kulit kering/kombi :))

  2. Eonnie,bukanny Laneige tuh di kls middle end???

    1. nah itu aku krg yakin juga, tp setauku dia premium brand untuk young people gt ^^

    2. Ini middle end. Termasuk Amore pacific tapi ini sister brand tp yg menengah keatas. Karena premiumnya itu seoerti sulwhasoo, history of whoo, IOPE. Laneige itu sekelas Hera atau beyond tapi masih diatas Missha, Tony Moly, dll.

  3. Ini penggunaannya setelah mosturizer atau sebelumnya? :)))

  4. pakai ini dulu atau emulsion dulu ya?

  5. hi shel, pake 2-3 essence yg beda merek dlm sekali pemakaian boleh nggak ya? atau tiap hari harus 1 essence aja?

    1. kenapa hrs dicampur2? kalo bisa 1 macam aja :)
      biar kalo misal ga cocok, bs ketauan skin care mana yg ga cocok.. kalo dicampur2 nanti bingung hehe


I do appreciate every comment of yours :D
