LANEIGE WATERBANK HYDRO CREAM EX REVIEW


Laneige has been one of my favorite Korean skincare brands to date. It was my first sponsored post by Influenster and I keep going back to this brand for my face creams. Even when I try out other brands I always have a stash of Laneige creams in my collection because I am yet to find something better.

This review is of the Laneige Waterbank Hydro Cream EX: It is part of the Waterbank Line which consists of Waterbank Hydro Essence, Waterbank Moisture Essence, Waterbank Hydro Cream EX, Waterbank Moisture Cream EX [Reviewed], Waterbank Sherbet Cream, Waterbank Eye Gel, Waterbank Eye Gel EX, Waterbank Moisture Mist, and Waterbank Double Gel Soothing Mask EX.


The Waterbank line is perfect for my combination skin because, Although I have a dry cheek area and an oily T-zone, heavy moisturizers are a no-go for me as they tend to break me out even during winter. I like using gel moisturizers during the summer and springtime and a thicker gel-like moisturizer for winter.

LANEIGE WATERBANK HYDRO CREAM EX
A moisture cream that creates a moisturizing, refreshing moisture film by providing the skin with a deep moisture barrier with green mineral water.

A deep hydration cream replenishing the skin with moisture through Green Mineral Water to build a moisture barrier that lasts 24 hours

+ Skin always feeling dry
+ Oily & combination skin
+ To provide fresh moisture to the skin
+ It instantly moisturizes the skin and provides deep hydration that lasts all day long

Garden Cress extract in Green Mineral Water having an anti-oxidant effect helps make the skin clear, healthy, and glowing.

Water Zipper technology locks moisture into the skin and Hydro Fresh Matrix forms a moisture barrier to keep the skin hydrated all day long.


In comparison to my other two gel creams, it is much more moisturizing and slightly thicker.

In comparison with the Moisture cream which is my HG winter face cream, the Hydro cream is lighter but doesn't fall short of providing moisture to the skin.

It does have some fungal acne triggers (Glyceryl Stearate, Sorbitan Isostearate, Stearic Acid, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate) among the ingredients, so If you're prone to fungal acne, this might not be a good moisturizer for you. 


FINAL THOUGHTS
I love the light gel-like consistency of this cream, It's not heavy and it is not greasy upon application. It also feels cool to the skin. It does have a light fragrance but doesn't irritate my sensitive skin or eyes. 

I don't use face creams during the day, I only use them at night. This is my favorite summer night cream, and also what I use when I am in tropical Ghana. Because even when I am in Ghana, I sleep directly under the AC I wake up with my skin feeling dry,  But this cream helps to prevent that and I wake up with my skin feeling hydrated and not dry at all. 

WILL I REPURCHASE?: Yes, absolutely. I also Just bought the Moisture cream to use for Winter as well.

Thanks for reading!
