I Use This Best-Selling Lip Mask as My Everyday Balm, and Yes, I’m Breakin’ the Rules
First of all, I can't take full credit for this absolutely genius hack . . . A good friend of mine, who loves setting trends and sharing her latest obsessions, got me onto this lip mask. She, knowing full well how devoted I am to my Glossier Balm Dotcom (you don't wanna know how much I pay to get it shipped to Australia), proclaimed that this lip mask would be "life changing" and that I would abandon my expensive international shopping habits.
Given that she'd made such a
big huge call, I had to put it to the test. The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask ($28) is a beauty product by Korean beauty brand Laneige, and was designed as an overnight mask. You simply apply it before bed and while you sleep the sweetly scented formula removes dead skin cells while infusing your lips good stuff like berry extracts, antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid so that when you wake, your lips feel smooth and hydrated. However, my friend encouraged me to use it like a lip balm and apply as regularly as necessary.
Since using the lip mask daily, I've noticed that my lips are way less dry and flakey (thank you air-con) and they look soft and balmy (not sticky) throughout the day. I also find myself needing to apply lip balm, or in this case, the lip mask, a lot less. After doing a little research into the formula, I found out that the mask is a 'water-science' based solution, which explains why it feels way less tacky than other balms while still providing an ample amount of hydration. It's also one of Laneige's best selling products which comes as no surprise.
Final verdict — I'm a convert. I've recommended it to several people in the last week alone, and I've even brought it for friends and family as a gifts.
