Did you know that our skin naturally losses moisture during our sleep? Some external factors like sleeping in a too high or low temperature room and not drinking enough water may contribute to waking up to dry, dehydrated skin. That is one of the reasons why night creams are usually designed to be a richer, thicker, and heavier formula just to hydrate the skin slowly over several hours and support aging skin.
I have oily skin and truth be told, it is very, very difficult to find a cream that suits my skin. A lot of night creams in the market often make my skin feel so sweaty and uncomfortable that I always end up washing them off. However, when I first got myself a mini size of this cream, I fell in love instantly and made a purchase for a bigger size.
Here’s my take on the Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask in the Lavender variant.
Moisturizes and revitalizes skin as if you have had a good night’s sleep for 8 hours!
Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask Features:
1. Skin purifying effect: SLEEP-TOX™ technology purifies skin during sleep, keeping it in optimum condition
SLEEP-TOX™ technology’s purifying effects help to rejuvenate and normalize skin that is often fatigued and sensitized by stress during the day. This helps the skin to achieve a well-rested appearance the next morning.
2. Skin moisturizing: MOISTURE WRAP™ helps skin retain moisture throughout the night.
The dense beta-glucan moisturizing shield (network) consists of active agents such as Hydro Ion Mineral Water, evening primrose root extract, Hunza apricot extracts, and more so that skin fully absorbs the goodness during 8 hours of sleep.
3. Skin soothing: contains skin-soothing agents that are gentle on sleeping skin, helping it recover overnight.
Ultra-mild, safe formula that can be worn overnight / Non-comedogenic, sensitivity tested.
4. Aromatic SLEEPSCENT™ helps you relax during sleep
SLEEPSCENT™ specially developed for Laneige Water Sleeping Mask is an AMOREPACIFIC original, allowing skin to relax and rest and boosting its ability to regenerate.
Capacity: 25 ml / 70 ml
When and How To Use:
The sleeping mask is not meant for everyday use; you can use it up to 2 to 3 times a week.
- After washing your face, apply toner and emulsion as per your nightly routine.
- Apply a sizeable amount (about that of a 50 cent coin) on your nose tip, forehead, cheeks, and chin, and just enjoy the scent!
- Gently massage the product into your skin, working your way out from the center, to the sides of your face.
- After working the mask into your skin, leave it on overnight, and wash it off the next morning!

Scent, Colour & Texture:
It has a mild lavender scent. The transparent white color of sleeping mask has a watery, gel-like consistency that spreads smoothly and absorbs quickly into the skin.
The Water Sleeping Mask spreads easily and evenly, leaving a little bit of cooling sensation that dissipates as the gel sinks into my skin. I love that it does not leave any film, or sticky and greasy residue on my skin.
So far, in my experience, a gel consistency cream could not hold, or has less power to retain the moisture for a long time, especially in an air-conditioned room. That’s not the case with this one! I was surprised by this Water Sleeping Mask from Laneige, not only it gives extra hydration to my skin, it also has helped to calm the redness and dryness of the sides of my nose .I even can skip my moisturiser when I have this Sleeping Mask in my night routine.
Lavender is known to aid a good sleep. I find the mild Lavender scent is calming and very pleasing. I love to breath it in for a good few seconds. I believe the scent is from the fragrance it contains. It is not the artificial kind of lavender scent that makes my head dizzy.
I love how my skin looks plump and feels bouncy to the touch in the morning. The rave is real! Yeah, you read that right! This cream is approved by my oily skin, not only for its lightweight consistency, but also the hydration it gives to my skin throughout the night.
This is one of the best night creams / moisturisers that I love. I highly recommend this for all skin types, from dry to oily skin. This is such a great discovery for me in my skincare journey!
