[Korean Cosmetic Review] Laneige Cream Skin Refiner Mist
After falling in love with Laneige’s Cream Skin Refiner back in 2019, I’ve since had it in my routine for as long as I can remember. Alternating between the mini bottle I had and the heavier original glass bottle, when I emptied both, it didn’t take me long to get my hands on this Mist version. So, is it more convenient and a better packaging option overall?
Let’s find out.
The ideal circular shape of face-angling from the fine mist spray lands gently on the skin.
I also wish the mist mechanism could be pressed down longer for extended dispersion – it’s currently too quick for my liking – or that the dispersion area was wider.
PERIOD AFTER OPENING (PAO):
HOW TO USE:
When the skin feels dry, hold the mist 20-30cm away from the face, close your eyes and gently spray on your entire face. You can use at any time – before and after makeup!
It’s unscented (no artificial fragrance nor essential oils) but there is a mild milky scent.
Lightweight milky-white consistency with a slight oily feel which becomes more noticeable when more layers of the CSR is applied onto the skin. Spreads and absorbs into the skin very easily. Leaves a deeply moisturizing finish and layers well under lotions, creams, and sunscreens.
MY SKIN TYPE:
Sensitive (prone to redness and irritation), combination-dry, acne-prone and dehydrated.
OVERALL THOUGHTS & EXPERIENCE:
In terms of the product, I really have no complaints because the Laneige Cream Skin Refiner (CSR) formula works exceptionally well for my sensitive skin, which is why it’s still my favourite product in my skincare arsenal ‘til this day.
5/5! Solid product, despite the slight packaging issues. The plastic Mist bottle does not feel as luxe as the original glass bottle for the CSR, but I love how convenient this baby is. Will definitely be cherishing all the remaining product I have! Highly recommended for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. Though as always, YMMV!
