Are you obsessed with sleeping masks too? They are the favourite step of my skincare routine! I have to admit, whether I hear about a tried-and-true sleeping mask or a new launch, I’ve most likely slathered it on my skin before or I want to, ASAP.
Part of the reason I love sleeping masks is because I believe that they work really hard to repair and restore my skin when I’m in lala-land. I may be clocking in less than the recommended 8 hours of sleep every night, yet I still want to wake up to a fresh, dewy and glowy skin in the morning. I’m sure many of you are with me on this.
It’s not called beauty sleep for nothing, right?
I’m a night owl and it takes me forever to unwind and get ready for bed. While I may be physically in bed, mentally, my mind is still whirling at full speed. Realistically, I only drift off closer to 1:30am.
When I found out that Laneige had revamped its iconic Water Sleeping Mask – it’s since been reformulated five times in the past, with the most recent update being in 2015 – I was intrigued. The sleeping mask has been a global bestseller for the brand since its launch in 2002 and has sold more than 16 million jars worldwide.
I remember using its earlier version, though I never quite leaned in to it. After all, I have tried many sleeping masks over the years, so I am quite picky about what I keep on my dresser.
But I was told that Laneige has really upped the ante with this improved formulation. So I decided to get reacquainted with this sleeping mask and give it another chance.
And here’s what happened.
