Laneige Water Drop Tinted Lip Balm - Moisturises Lips while Removing Dead Skin Cells from Lips

Feel the cool water on your lips, allow the scent to wake your senses and watch your lips transform as you glide Laneige’s latest Water Drop Tinted Lip Balm on your lips. This brand new lip balm does more than just protect your lips, it moisturises your lips while gently removing dead skin cells from our lips.
With an improved moisture-retaining power, your lips will feel instantly moist and supple, without the greasy feel that lip balms typically leave on the lips.
Laneige’s Water Drop Tinted Lip Balm features three key benefits. They are:
1. Moisture Upgrade
The Water Drop Tinted Lip Balm possesses a moisture upgrade with its moisture-locking system and 3 kinds of moisturizing fruit seed oil. They are Apricot seed oil, Peach seed oil and Plum seed oil.

An experiment was carried out to test the efficacy of the moisture-lock formula. It was found that leaves treated with the Water Drop Tinted Lip Balm, experience minimal water evaporation as compared to non-treated leaves. Treated leaves were also found to be less withered as compared to the non-treated leaves.

2. Soft, Refreshing Feel

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask - Wake Up to Smooth & Supple Lips

Introducing my new found love - Laneige all-new Lip Sleeping Mask, an addition to the Water Sleeping Mask, enabling us to achieve both moisturized skin and lips.
Sometimes lip balm is just not doing a good enough job in relieving dry and chapped lips. Most of us who suffer from dry lips apply lip balm regularly to maintain healthy lips and overall care of our lips.
Unfortunately, we don’t experience long-lasting benefits from this. In an effort to strengthen its Sleeping Beauty Care Concept, Laneige introduces the All-New Lip Sleeping Mask. Formulated to provide lips with a special intensive care, it gently erases dry, flaky skin on the lips through the night to realize smooth and supple lips the next morning!
The Lip Sleeping Mask is perfect for those of us who experience dry, flaky and chapped lips thus find it challenging to achieve smooth lips when applying lip makeup.
To ensure the mask stays on the lips through the night, the Lip Sleeping Mask is made of a balm-like, sticky texture with a sweet and fruity berry fragrance. On top of its sweet and relaxing fragrance, the Lip Sleeping Mask has been carefully formulated to provide you with amazing lip care benefits:
1. Berry Mix™ Complex
Berry Mix Complex™ is made up of 8 different types of antioxidant-rich berries. They are raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, blueberry, gojiberry, soapberry, cloudberry and coffee berry. Rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants, berry mix extracts soothes dry and chapped lips, making them soft and smooth again.

Raspberry is rich in ellagic acid, polyphenols, and Vitamin C. Termed as a ‘super antioxidant fruit’. Blueberries contain the most anthocyanins as compared to other fruits and vegetables. Cranberries on the other hand is abundant with polyphenols to provide antioxidant and anti-ageing effects. Last but not least, Strawberries contain an abundance of Vitamin C.
The berries are extracted though super-high pressure to preserve the antioxidant properties of the berry extracts. Antioxidants are vital to counter the oxidative actions of free radicals. It slows down the body’s aging process, prevents damage caused by free radicals and protects the body from diseases.

Laneige's All-New Water Sleeping Mask

Attention all fans of Laneige’s Water Sleeping Pack_EX, you will rejoice to the all-new Water Sleeping Mask that is packed with more benefits than its predecessor. To sum it up, this new Water Sleeping Pack Mask does more than just moisturising and brightening; it offers you deep sleep. It functions to restore and repair damaged skin cells, offers deep moisturising with continuous moisture being supplied to the skin and helps you to go into deep sleep for longer hours. These are all key factors in ensuring your skin stays youthful and rejuvenated.
Sleep deprivation affects your skin condition. According to Sleep Care Expert, there is a correlation between the quality of sleep and one’s skin condition. 224 Asian women were recruited by Laneige in conducting a skin research. Studies revealed that skin moisture, texture (dead skin), clarity, radiance, and pore-related skin indicators decreased correspondingly when you lack of sleep. On top of that, clinical research has also shown that our skin feels drier, rougher, looks dull and lacklustre when we are deprived of sleep, even if just for one night.
During the night, the skin restores and repairs itself from damage inflicted by various external aggressors during the day. When the skin is restored to its optimal condition overnight, it is then better able to protect itself from the external environment the next day. Studies have shown that when we sleep at night, our skin’s permeability increases. Hence, it is more effective in absorbing active ingredients. However, this high permeability also means that our skin loses moisture at a higher rate at night. As such, our skin needs a solution that not only affects the absorption of active ingredients but can also replenish and lock-in moisture.
Developed based on 15 years of research on the sleeping pack, the all-new Water Sleeping Mask is a significant upgrade from its predecessor, the Water Sleeping Pack EX. It was also selected as a World Class Product of Korea in 2014 by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy.

Formulated with the latest SLEEP-TOX™ and MOISTURE-WRAP™ technology, the Water Sleeping Mask does more than delivering moisture to the skin. It detoxes and purifies the skin to offer revitalised and brighter skin. SLEEPSCENT™ has also been improved to help one fall asleep faster and go into deeper sleep for a longer period of time.
Technology & Ingredients: 

1. SLEEP-TOX™ Purification Technology leaves the skin clear and revitalized.

At night, SLEEP-TOX™ restores and repairs the damages caused by various external aggressors during the day. When the skin is restored to its optimal condition overnight, it is then better able to protect itself from the external environment the next day. Laneige has found that during sleep, there is a ‘golden time’ to boost the detoxification and purification functions in the skin. SLEEP-TOX™ activates the purification genes with Hunza Apricot and Evening Primrose extracts to normalize fatigue skin affected by daytime stress and restore the skin to its optimal condition overnight. Present in the SLEEP-TOX™ purification technology are: 

LANEIGE Sleeping Beauty Slumber Party 2015 at Casa del Rio Malacca

I’m into beauty hence I love discovering everything beauty related. I had discover beauty sleep with the all-new Water Sleeping Mask at Laneige’s Sleeping Beauty Slumber Party 2015 at Casa del Rio Malacca last month with a bunch of media and beauty bloggers.

It doesn't irritate my skin but be careful to avoid eye area as it once stings my eyes. This toner literally makes my skin glow.
