Review: Laneige Water Sleeping Pack_EX

You've probably heard about this sleeping pack plenty of times because so many bloggers raved about it. Apparently this is Laneige's bestseller, and one is sold every 30 seconds. So after reading all those great reviews, I just had to see what the hype was about and whether or not it was that amazing. Turns out... it is.

-Night time skin trasmissivity shows higher rate than that during the day. Applying it just before going to bed, the best state for skin transmission according to the skin circadian rhythm, maximizes the efficiency of overnight water supply.

-The function of skin remarkably declines during the night time. Enriched with Beta-glucan, Water Sleeping Pack_EX deeply hydrates fatigued and dry skin while Ceramide formula strengthens the skin barrier

-Antioxidant effect of Hunza Apicrot Extracts brings crystal clear and even skin tone by removing harmful oxygen and by purifying skin. 

-Recoverine from chestnuts promotes turnovers of horny layers to remove dead cells for vigorous water supply and sleek skin texture.

-An aromatic essence compound exlusively developed by AMOREPACIFIC, Sleepscent™ helps to relax your mind and body to promote good sleep. A good sleep with sufficient relaxation eventually strengthens skin revitalization. 

-Himalaya Snow Water helps to keep your skin to look more crystal clear and vitalized.

-Light gel-type texture without stickiness allows comfortable sleep.

They even included a small booklet with all the information ^^
Box dimensions: 6.9 cm x 6.8 cm x 7.2 cm
Height: 7.2 cm | Diameter: 6.2 cm
It's a simple plastic tub that feels very sturdy. They have the manufacture date printed on the bottom of the tub :D They also included a spatula (not pictured here) which makes it a lot more hygienic. 

How it looked before I opened it.

 It's light blue color (appears more turquoise in real life) that I've never seen before in skincare products. According to Laneige, depending on where and when the natural flavors (ex: rose oil) are extracted from, the color can change. Hm... interesting.

The scent is a scent created by AMOREPACIFIC called Sleepscent. Essential oils from Orange Flower, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Sandal Wood and etc. are contained in the Sleepscent™. It's very calming and smells nice. I don't find it strong at all, but it does remind me of some sheet masks I used from The Face Shop. I wonder why? I'm not really sure if it actually helped me sleep better though. ^^;
Here's the spatula! ^^ 
The texture is watery and gel-like, but very light as well. It's easy to spread and doesn't feel sticky. A little goes a long way. However... it takes awhile to absorb (about 20-30 minutes depending on how much you use).
Here is how it looks before it's spread, after it's spread, and after it's been absorbed.
I've only used this twice but already the results have amazed me. When I woke up the following morning, my skin felt really soft and smoother, and looked brighter and more plump. I was kind of afraid that it would break me out since I read that it did that to some other people, but nevertheless it didn't, which made me love this sleeping pack even more. ^^ I've tried Holika Holika's Wine Therapy Sleeping Mask before, and let's just say it can't even compare with Laneige's. 

-Brightens skin
-Calming scent and not too strong
-Skin feels soft and smoother
-Didn't break me out
-Sturdy packaging

-A little pricey (but not by much!)
-Takes awhile to absorb

Overall Rating: 5/5

Repurchase? Yes! Haha but not for awhile though, since 80 mL is quite a lot. I'm pretty picky when it comes to skincare, so the fact that this product will be staying in my routine means that it's really good.
