This moisturizer hydrates without leaving an oily finish, but its light floral scent may bother those with sensitive skin (and noses).

I splurged a bit on a higher-end moisturizer about a week ago: Laneige Water bank Moisture Cream. I have to lớn admit that the beautiful packaging was 90 percent of the reason I reached for this moisturizer over any of the other options at Sephora. I’d say that this is a step above my normal drug store brands lượt thích CeraVe and Cetaphil, but still a tier below more premium options lượt thích Sunday Riley và Drunk Elephant. Laneige is the sister company of AmorePacific, which is a luxe Korean beauty brand. In this review, I’ll cốt truyện my early impressions of this moisturizer.

This moisturizer is marketed as suitable for those with “normal khổng lồ dry skin,” which doesn’t exactly fit me (I have combination-oily, acne-prone skin with some dry patches around my upper lip và nose). However, since I use drying products like acids/peels & Differin, I figured it was worth a shot.

A few notes about the ingredients here. The water in this hàng hóa is actually “hydro ionized mineral water” that contains six minerals that are supposed khổng lồ help moisturize your skin: zinc, manganese, magnesium, sodium, calcium, và potassium.

I like that it also contains squalane, niacinamide, tocopherol (vitamin E), và copper tripeptide-1, which are all supposed to lớn be hydrating, soothing, beneficial ingredients for skin. It also contains two ingredients that are normally found in CeraVe products: ceramide 3 & phytosphingosine (go ahead, check the label of just about any CeraVe product, and you’ll see them listed).

I don’t normally opt for moisturizer that contains fragrance, but I was in the mood for something different, so I decided lớn give it a try. Plus, Sephora has a really good return policy, so that helped me feel more adventurous.

My first impression of Laneige Water bank Moisture Cream

Texture

I like that Laneige Water bank Moisture Cream is doesn’t leave an oily finish on the skin. It has a nice creamy texture without any hint of the heaviness or oiliness that petrolatum-based moisturizers like CeraVe moisturizing cream has. The texture is actually quite nice, and soaks into the skin nicely, and leaves my skin feeling plumper & smoother.

Packaging

This is packaged in a heavy glass jar with two covers. It also includes a small plastic spoon that you can use to scoop out a little at a time. I lượt thích to use the stainless steel spoon I picked up at the DECIEM store in SoHo và wash it after each use.

If you don’t want khổng lồ wash the spoon after each use, you can buy something like this pack of 200 little disposable spoons on Amazon. I wish it came in a pump, so that I wouldn’t have to use a spoon. Plus, I’m afraid I’m going to lớn drop this heavy glass jar and it will shatter everywhere. But I have khổng lồ admit that the glass makes it feel lượt thích a more luxurious product.

Caveats

It does contain dimethicone (a silicone) in it (which I don’t mind), but if you tend to lớn avoid silicone-heavy products, this won’t be a good option for you.

The main thing I don’t like about this moisturizer is the slightly floral fragrance. Even though fragrance is listed as the last ingredient, remember that companies can danh sách ingredients that are included at Laneige Water bank Moisture Cream. I thought it wasn’t going khổng lồ bother me that much, but I think I have a higher tolerance for citrusy fragrances lượt thích the one in Frudia Citrus Brightening Cream Review, và a lower tolerance for floral scents. If your skin is sensitive to lớn fragrance, I’d recommend looking elsewhere for a fragrance-free moisturizer.
