Is The New Laneige Water Bank Moisturiser The Answer To Dry Skin?
Laneige Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Cream packaging
Upon first glance, you’ll immediately notice the moisturiser’s aesthetically pleasing packaging. "It comes in a cute and compact blue cube packaging that’s easy to open," Chloe said. The cap snaps shut with a press. It doesn’t have the typical screw cap, so it may take some time to get used to. "How it opens has to be the same way to close it — with the Laneige logo facing front — so it takes a conscious effort to close it back properly."
You can use your fingers or the pastel pink spatula applicator to scoop up the product. "It’s very hygienic to use," Heather added.
First impressions on and claims of the Laneige Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Cream
"I have always enjoyed using Laneige's skincare products," Chloe shared, saying she's very "particular" with her skincare products. "So I was very happy to see this blue hyaluronic acid range and very excited to try this moisturiser to see the effects." Chloe also shared that hyaluronic acid is her non-negotiable ingredient when it comes to picking a moisturiser.
So it’s a good thing that the Laneige Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Cream, like the rest of the products in the reinvented skincare line, contains blue hyaluronic acid (HA) as its hero ingredient. For the uninitiated, traditional HA is widely used in hydrating skincare products due to its ability to draw and bind moisture particles to your skin cells. To put simply, it makes dry parched skin bouncier and more hydrated. The brand said they opted to use blue hyaluronic acid for the new collection since it’s 2,000 times smaller than typical HA. The blue HA’s smaller size allows it to penetrate deeper into your skin (up to the 10th layer) and keep it hydrated for longer.
Aside from promising to deliver lasting hydration to thirsty skin, this cream moisturiser also promises to repair the skin barrier, reduce redness, and exfoliate and remove dead skin with its Triple Care of Damage technology.
There are two moisturisers currently available in the range, one for normal to dry skin (which Heather tried) and another for combination to oily skin. The normal to dry skin variant has a white cream consistency while the one for oily skin looks more like a clear gel.
The moisturiser is also formulated with a Zero Irritation Technology, so it's made for those whose skin is prone to heightened sensitivity to certain skincare formulations. The product is slightly scented, but it's barely noticeable once applied.
