Today I’ll be reviewing a product that I’ve had my hands on for a couple of months now, the Laneige Special Care Lip Sleeping Mask. This product comes in four different “flavours”; Grapefruit, Vanilla, Apple/lime and Berry which is the one I’m talking about today. In case there’s any confusion; it’s the pink one!
So why did I purchase the Laneige Special Care Lip Sleeping Mask?
Some of you might wonder “Why buy a sleeping mask for your lips?” And to be honest that’s a very fair question, because many people don’t even apply a sleeping mask on their face. So, is a lip sleeping mask necessary? Probably not for everyone, but I’d say it’s definitely a good product for those with dry, chapped lips like myself. Especially during the autumn – and winter months. Personally I find that during said months my lips get dry to the point where they crack open, sting and bleed. Ain’t nobody got time for that!

So what do I think of the Laneige Specical Care Lip Sleeping Mask?
I bought this product after falling in love with it’s big brother; the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask (you know, the one for your face?) So it wasn’t a complete shock when the Special Care Lip Sleeping Mask also impressed me! I must say that I really enjoy using this product. I think it’s a great thing to have on hand when the autumn sneaks up on you with it’s dry, cold wind to prepare you for an even harsher winter, at least where I live! I don’t use this lip mask every night, though. Only when I need it, which is regularly in the autumn and winter. Hell, I even use it during the day sometimes! But seriously, this product is a great treat whenever your lips are dry and chapped, and you want to wake up with soft, beautiful lips! Did I mention that it smells sooo good? I really don’t see any cons when it comes to this lip mask.
Appearance on the lips: 9/10
