I swear the moment that Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask was released, I started seeing it mentioned as a must have on beauty blogs, fashion blogs, even on travel lists! I recently splurged on this rose balm, and I admit to being completely obsessed. So, did I really need to try another intensive lip product? Is this lip mask really that great, and really, what is a lip mask anyways?
It turns out that I did need this lip balm as well, and that a lip mask is simply a super hydrating balm that gives a bigger moisture punch than most other lip balms.
The Laneige lip mask is not thick, it looks a bit waxy in the container but it melts and sinks into your lips. It doesn’t feel sticky at all, it does stay a bit on your lips, creating a layer of product on your lips that stays put for an hour or so. It just kind of hangs out, feeling super moist.
I’ve been using this product whenever I feel like my lips are somewhat dry, not just at night. I’ve found that it works well under lipsticks as well. I was on call recently at work, and I spent days in the super dry hospital. My lips were definitely chapped! I remembered that I had this balm in my overnight bag, and it worked like a charm. I loved feeling that light layer of balm on my lips, and I no longer had dry and cracking lips. I swear it only took one use! I’ll be stocking up on the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask and it will be a staple for me in dry conditions like travel and at work.
