LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask Review:

This mask is the bee’s knees according to most beauty reviewers out there, but I would caution your use based on the weather and skin type. Although it might seem like a no-brainer for all dry lips, its use of alcohol and fragrance backfires with prolonged use.

I first tried the product during the warm summer months, getting really great results. I didn’t use it daily. The 2-3 times a week was enough to keep my lips smooth and hydrated, giving the product high marks.

My second time, this winter, turned out to be a different experience. I used the product religiously about 5-6 times a week, craving a seal and moisture in the dry, cold weather. I woke up to supple, moisturized lips, in the beginning, loving the smoothness. As time went on, I noticed my lips drying out more and more during the day. Before I knew it, I was treating chapped and dry cracks. I stopped using the product, and my lips went back to normal.

In short, this isn’t a product for everyday use and not something for cold, dry weather. It’s best used in the summertime, or occasionally, for a subtle smoothness boost. Better yet, use something else that actually works without long-term drying effects. I will not be repurchasing, especially since they’re not cruelty-free to boot.
