Review: Laneige Special Care Lip Sleeping Mask

Hey guys!

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.

The products I use weekly…

Hey guys!

I’ve already posted my morning skin care routine and my evening routine, so I think it’s high time that I show you the products that aren’t included in my everyday skin care regimen, but still have a solid spot in my weekly routine. In other words; I’m now going to take you through the products I use weekly, instead of every day.

So let’s get to it   ↓

I have two sleeping masks from Laneige; the very popular Water Sleeping Mask and the more obscure Special Care Lip Sleeping mask. I love them both but I only feel that I need them occasionally, probably 1-2 times a week, sometimes even less. My goal is to discover and use products that hydrate and moisturize my face sufficiently during the day and night on their own, so that a sleeping mask becomes an occasional treat as oppose to a necessity. So far that hasn’t happened yet, which means that I will be applying a sleeping mask when I need one. When it comes to the lip sleeping mask, I only use it when my lips are very dry, which is mostly during the autumn-  and winter months.

Now, this next one is somewhat new to me; a peeling gel. From what I understand a peeling gel is a very light exfoliant that is designed to remove dead skin cells on a much smaller scale than a scrub would. In other words; a peeling gel would probably be a good alternative if you want to peel your face more than once a week or if your skin is sensitive to harsh scrubs. The one I’ve included in my weekly routine is the Tonymoly Floria Brightening Peeling Gel.

And last but not least, the Black Sugar Mask Wash Off and the Rice Mask Wash Off, both from Skinfood. Both of these are great for temporarily fading hyper pigmentation and brightening the face in general. On days I want a more abrasive scrub I’ll use the Black Sugar Mask Wash off. If I want a less abrasive, more gentle scrub, I’ll use the Rice Mask Wash Off.
