Dry lips are the type of beauty problem we would like to avoid, and despite the increased range of lip balms available on the market, obtaining visible softening results is not always that easy. One product that has made quite a fuss in the beauty community is the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. Launched in Korea in spring of 2015, the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask has become a cult favourite. Let's find out why everyone is raving about the ''Lip Sleeping Mask''.
Let’s start with what meets the eye first and that is the sleeping mask’s packaging. The frosted pink/ reddish glass tub is not only cute but sturdy as well, so you don’t have to worry about breaking it. The product comes with a spatula, which makes applying the mask convenient and easy – you don’t have to get ointment all over your fingers. The rubber spatula gives the entire packaging a more luxurious feel to it, so you’ll definitely love how it looks.
Rich in Vitamin C and antioxidants from a nutritious blend of raspberries, strawberries, cranberries, goji berries and blueberries, Berry Mix Complex soothes and softens, revealing smooth, supple lips.
Texture is important when you are trying out a new lip product, considering many might feel uncomfortable on the lips. Because this is a mask and needs to be applied before going to bed and left there until the next morning, you probably don’t want to experience an unpleasant sensation. Well, you’ll discover that the product has a balmy texture, but in comparison to other traditional lip ointments, it’s characterised by a heavier and thicker consistency. So as soon as you have the formula on your lips, you’ll be able to feel how hydrating it actually is. Also, just a little bit of product goes a long way, the amount you need each time being quite tiny.
Just like the majority of all cult-favourite Korean have accustomed us, this lip mask also comes with an incredibly pleasing scent. The Berry version of the product features a nice fruity scent, which you’ll be able to smell as soon as you open the packaging. While the deep hydration and moisturising effects will be the things you’ll love most about this lip mask, the scent comes as a great bonus.
How to use
For rapid and effective results, make sure to use this product every night. Take a small amount out of the jar using the spatula (it’s better if you take less and add more after if necessary, considering its thick consistency) and apply a layer over your lips. Leave it overnight for it to act. Because it has exfoliating characteristics, use a cotton pad or a tissue in the morning to wipe away dead skin cells.
While there are many products that promise soft lips, this Korean mask has become a favourite for many beauty gurus, due to the impressive results it provides. If you want supple and soft lips, then you should definitely give the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask a try.
