Laneige Eye Sleeping Mask is the brand’s first-ever leave-on overnight eye mask to address moisture loss throughout the night during sleep, as well as puffy eyes from a lack of sleep. With exclusive sleep circular technology and moisture wrap technology, eyes reveal a fresher appearance next morning. It comes with a cooling ceramic massage tool to encourage a vitalized appearance.
With over 20 years of research, Laneige’s Water Science™ has developed optimum water to address each skin concern. Hydro Ionized Mineral Water offers quicker and deeper absorption for better overall moisturization; Mint Water reduces excessive sebum while offering greater pore care.
It was nice to see that the ceramic ball applicator has been packed separately for hygiene purpose. The normal screw-on top gives a tighter seal, slowing down oxidation in the new product. Someple people prefer to only use the ceramic ball applicator when needed, I prefer to always have it on as puffy and tired eye are the banes of my existence.
The packaging has a signature Laneige design, simple and calming. 25 ml of product came housed in a pretty frosted glass bottle and felt rather luxurious, but also rather heavy.
Use at the eye cream step of basic skincare routine at night.
Using the ceramic applicator, dot a generous amount along the orbital bone and follow the massage directions.
Gently pat in the remaining with your ring fingers and leave on overnight.
May be used as an eye cream or layered under other sleeping masks.
Use two to three times a week.
Avoid putting product directly into the eye.
Tip: wipe the ceramic ball clean with tissue before storing.
How to massage:
For best results, after application, use ring fingers or ceramic massage tool to lightly press inner corners of the eyes and then gently stroke across the eyelids.
Lightly press outer corners of the eyes and then gently stroke under the eyes.
Press underneath the eyebrows and then gently sweep down to inner corners of the eyes.
Press the center under the eyes and then gently sweep outward up to brow bone.
Repeat one to two times to help soothe and de-puff fatigued eyes.
Out of the bottle, I detected a faint lavender scent. It vaguely smells like Laneige’s ever popular product, the Water Sleeping Mask. The ceramic ball applicator is coated with just the right amount of product for both of my eyes. The eye mask has a thin gel consistency, much thinner than its sister Water Sleeping Mask. It has a nice slip and spreads easily with fingertips. Because it has a nice slip, rolling the ceramic ball applicator around my eye area did not cause any tugging.
I have a bad habit of facing the computer screen all day and that usually results in tired eyes at the end of the day and puffy eyes in the morning. The skin around my eyes are also very vulnerable to rubbing and tugging as my eyes often get dry from wearing contact lenses.
The ceramic ball applicator gives a nice cooling sensation on the skin. Immediately my eyes feel relieved and refreshed. I also notice my dark eye circles immediately looking slightly less brown, and a little more pink. This signifies improved blood circulation in the area. After massaging, I then proceed to gently pat in the product with my fingertips.
After patting the eye mask around my eyes, it does not absorb easily and stays in its gel texture on my skin. Leaving it untouched for 15 mins or so, the product dries down to a tacky film. Since it’s supposed to be an eye mask, I guess that’s the finish that the brand wants to achieve. The next morning, the tacky film is gone and the skin around my eyes feels hydrated without any residue.
I am in love with the ceramic ball applicator. I think it works well with any eye care product. As for the eye mask, it gives a basic hydration and doesn’t really have the ability to take care of major issues. Once I’m done with the eye mask, I intend to keep using the ceramic ball applicator with other eye creams. It’s durable and high quality and I would totally pay $25-$30 just for the ceramic ball applicator. Check out more Laneige reviews here.
