Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is a leave-on lip mask that soothes and moisturizes for smoother, more supple lips overnight. It is targeted at dryness and fine lines on the lips. Enriched with vitamin C and antioxidants, its Berry Mix Complex™ offers a nutritiously sweet and fragrant blend of raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, and blueberry extracts to indulge the senses. Its exclusive Moisture Wrap™ technology boasts hyaluronic acid, beta-glucan and minerals to form a protective film over the lips to lock in moisture and active ingredients. A generous layer of this soothing mask at bedtime helps refresh lips so that they are supple and soft to the touch.
The one I’m testing today is the original flavor, berry. Laneige has since launched 3 more flavors to the line. Namely:
Orange – Grapefruit
Green – Apple Lime
Yellow – Vanilla
Lip sleeping masks, especially this one from Laneige, are all the rage these couple of years. I am super late to the game but better late than never!
Ingredients like Diisostearyl Malate, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Hydrogenated Poly (C6-14 Olefin), and waxes, are pretty common among all lip sleeping masks. They form a waterproof layer over the skin to trap moisture and prevent trans-epidermal water loss.
Using applicator, apply generously to the lips in the evening and leave on overnight.
Gently wipe off or cleanse in the morning.
Stop using the product immediately and consult a dermatologist when redness, swelling, or other skin irritations occur.
Avoid applying the product on open wounds or skin inflammation.
Keep away from direct sunlight and out of reach of infants and children.
The lip sleeping mask comes with a cute applicator in an equally pouch see-through plastic pouch. It has a pink silicone tip which I think is way more practical than brush hairs.
20 g of lip sleeping mask came in a tiny plastic squat jar with a screw on cap. I think it’s very cute that the packaging and product have a matching shade of salmon pink. This lip sleeping mask smells sweet and fruity out of the jar, exactly like how a berry shake would smell. Upon first dip into the jar with the applicator, I could tell that it is a super soft balm-cream.
I have been plagued with wrinkly lips my whole life. Also, they dry out and crack easily even though I use color products like lip tints and lipsticks twice a week. Hence, I have a habit of applying lip balm multiple times a day, and a thick layer right before bed. My current go-to lip product is surprise surprise… Aquaphor Healing Ointment! I bought a huge 14 oz jar a little less than a year ago and am a quarter way through it. I also have travel-sized tubes scattered all over the place, you’ll never catch me dead without a thin layer of healing ointment over my lips. That’s how I’ve been keeping my lips crack-free the past few years. There is nothing I can do about them lip wrinkles, they’re part of me and will always be.
The product goes on smoothly without dragging and has a baby pink, almost colorless shine. Using the applicator, I apply a thick layer on my lips to avoid getting the sticky sensation. I’m used to going to bed with a thick layer of balm on my lips so it doesn’t bother me at all. Plus, I’m really enjoying the fruity scent. The product seemed to get absorbed overnight because I’ll wake up with less product on my lips compared to the night before. I’ll wake up with plump and soft lips. The results are just a tad better than Aquaphor’s.
After testing it out as both a sleeping mask and a lip balm, I prefer the former and I also prefer applying with the included brush and not my fingers. When applied in a thin layer like a lip balm, it is sticky and I do notice it being there. Aquaphor wins in this case because of the greasy slip, applying just a thin layer gives me enough hydration and does not interfere with my lip makeup.
Compared to my HG Aquaphor Healing Ointment, this wins in terms of scent, packaging, and the intense hydration treatment it provides. They essentially give me the same results, moisturized and crack-free lips. Laneige is a pricier and fancier product that gives the senses a nice treat. But if your lips are beyond hope and are constantly flaky and no product has ever worked on your lips, then this is a must-try.
