Laneige Firming Sleeping Pack Review7:42 AM
Hey guys! First post for the month of July! :D
This is my second sleeping pack review, the first one was also from Laneige, the very famous Water Sleeping Pack. If you haven't seen that one yet just click THIS.
Firming Sleeping Pack is actually an upgraded version of the Water Sleeping Pack. this new version still offers intensive hydration like the older version and as the name suggests, it can help you get a firming effect overnight. Both products are popular and the new version is said to sell one every 30 seconds. *-*
For all skin types
A supple and resilient sleeping pack takes care of your sleep line and the potential wrinkles that are formed while you sleep.
Laneige Firming Sleeping Pack relieves skin wrinkles and fortifies skin barriers by preventing skin damage during daytime. This light gel type pack contains Sleepscent that relieves the skin from stress; it is applied on the skin before going to bed.
Like the Water Sleeping Pack, this also has Sleepscent, an aromatic essence for deep relaxation to promote good nigh sleep. Sleepscent is exclusively developed by Amore Pacific's independent technology and is composed of essential oils from Orange flower, Rose, Ylang Ylang, Sandalwood, etc.
Another thing that Amore Pacific developed is the SleepPOP.
SleepPOP is said to relieve wrinkles, improve skin elasticity and restore sleep lines. It is responsible for fortifying the skin barrier to prevent skin damage during the day. It contains polianthes tuberosa polysaccharide that hydrates the skin and works as a filler with low molecular collagen peptides.
How to use:
After cleansing, apply toner and emulsion.
Take an appropriate amount and gently apply on your face.
Go to sleep after the product has been fully absorbed and wash it off in the morning.
Use once or twice a week, you can also use this with the water sleeping pack alternately.
For concentrated firming care, double the amount of usual application.
This sleeping pack is also ideal for neck care.
No ingredients list on the box again. XD I believe the ones that can be bought in other countries has the ingredients list in English. There is actually an ingredients list in the pamphlet that's inside the box but it's in Korean. Aside from the pamphlet that contains a bit of information and is translated to 3 languages, it also includes a small blue spatula. Don't dip your fingers in the container, it's unhygienic and may cause bacteria build up.
As you can see, the Firming Sleeping Pack is smaller and the container is in a darker shade of blue. Both are made of hard plastic and has a spatula included in the box. The two containers are sturdy but I think only the Firming Sleeping Pack can be easily brought if you're going to travel because it's smaller in size and not as bulky as the WSP. Water Sleeping Pack contains 80 ml of product while it's only 50ml on the other one. The Firming Sleeping Pack is more expensive than the WSP despite having less amount product.
Manufacturing date can be seen at the bottom of the container and the shelf life is 12 months.
When you open it, you will see a Laneige sticker/seal on top, it is to indicate that the product is brand new. Don't use it if the seal is broken or not attached properly.
You will see a white slightly yellowish gel when you remove the seal. This is a memory form gel, once you stir it, it will go back to it's original form within a few seconds. Cool, right?
This actually reminds me of a gelatin or pudding. It still feels very light even if it is thicker than the WSP. It also melts when you spread it on your skin plus the absorption time is much faster than the Water Sleeping Pack. And like what I said in my previous review, you will only need a little amount when you use this. Laneige said it's better to use this 1-2 times per week. I tried using it that way but I've seen better results when I used it more than that, it depends on you on how many times you want to use it and you can use the WSP with this alternately for intensive hydration.
I didn't feel any cooling effect with this one and this is a little sticky. The stickiness isn't really a problem because it's not that super sticky, you will only feel a very slight stickiness when you touch your face but like what I said, no need to worry about it as it disappears the moment the gel is fully absorbed. It is recommended to wait for the product to be absorbed before sleeping for better results. This also wouldn't leave any stain or transfer on your pillow case as well because it becomes matte when it dries. This sleeping pack has a mild floral scent to it that dissipates once you get it out on the container. Like the WSP, the scent isn't as noticeable as it is when smelled on the container so I don't think you will have any problem with this unless you're extremely sensitive to fragranced products.
I personally like this one better than the WSP. It has same effects, just that the FSP has that additional firming on it's list. This is hydrating too but like WSP, it isn't enough, you will need to use other products that can help maximize the hydrating effect to fully get rid of dry patches on your skin. I don't really think this will work for people with extremely dry skin when used alone. Good news to those who have normal skin as this will work just fine. When I woke up I only noticed a bit of oiliness on my nose which is great and like what I've said, the fun part of using sleeping packs is washing it off when you wake up because that's when you will see the effect. My skin was supple, plumpled and hydrated the moment I rinsed off the sleeping pack on my face. I also did notice a little brightening and my skin is so soft and smooth, it feels really pleasant to touch! This is my second favorite, the third is the Water Sleeping Pack. XD If you're curious what my favorite sleeping pack is then please wait until Saturday. lol
Soft and smooth skin
