I hope the cold hasn’t gotten to you and you are all healthy.
Today let me share my experience with a now cult product, it’s Laneige lip sleeping pack.
I don’t really buy products from Laneige since it’s quite expensive but this lip mask is easy to find on Ebay for less than 15€ so I went for it.

Laneige always has such good looking models… Mmmm Park Seo Jun
Anyway I have never really seen any bad reviews about this brand so let’s see about this one.
This lip mask comes in a very simple but classy white and blue box.
The content of the box is the lip mask in a jar, an applicator and the instruction.
The jar makes it look like it’s in glass but it’s actually in plastic.
The size of this is also pretty handy, so if you want to take it with you during your travel, it would be alright.
The jar is in this nice pink berry color as the mask itself is berry scented. I actually like the smell of it, as it’s not too sweet or candy like.
This contains 20gr, it might not sound like much but actually a jar will last you months and months. I opened mine last year and I’m not even half way done.
As a lip mask you are suppose to apply it before going to bed and spread it on your lips with the special applicator.
In the morning you remove the mask and your lips should be left moisturized.
I really liked this applicator as it was petal like shaped and was super soft. But I broke mine after a week as I would always clean it up after each application. I didn’t realize I was pulling on it too hard, so now I just apply this mask with my finger… Goodbye hygiene.
The consistency of this lip mask is like a balm. It can be quite thick and heavy. Once it touches your lips, it feels like it melts and you can easily apply it. You can even feel like overapplying because of the texture. You will then look like you have too much gloss on your lips…
Try not too apply too much as a little really does go a long way.
In the morning when I clean my mouth with water, my lips do feel soft. This really does help when you have dry lips in the winter… But I do have a little issue with this mask.
For some reason whenever I use this mask, I always feel like so much dust clinged onto my lips while I was sleeping.
I always need to cough in the morning and clear my throat because just feels scratchy. When I do not use this mask, this feeling is gone.
Yes my lips are soft and moisturized, but then my throat is itchy.
This lip mask does the job and I really like the scent of it.
I wish the applicator was sturdier as I did enjoy applying the mask with this petal shaped applicator.
I really don’t know when and how I’ll finish this mask as I feel there is so much in a jar.
You could definitely use this as a glossy balm during the day, to keep your lips moisturized during the day.
I don’t think I would buy this again… Let me finish first the one I have and we’ll from there!
Would I recommend it? I would still say yes as this did help me heal my chapped lip during the cold, and to avoid having chapped lips after.
If you want to find this mask, I definitely recommend you going on Ebay, as it’s usually in auction at a very affordable price!
For some reason I am being very lazy this January, is it because of the cold or because I’m getting old?!?
Anyway let’s continue our reviews with the second product I received from Swanicoco which is their Bitamin C calm down skin toner.
I must say when I saw Bitamin C , I shrieked a bit … Had a horrible experience with vitamin C and I don’t want to go down that road again… In this case it was just the name.
This is again a product that is quite new to me so I wasn’t really sure what to expect.
This toner comes in a white box with explanation of the product in Korean.
To have more details about the product, you actually need to break the box.
This box has an extra layer of protection with again that dr silhouette everywhere.
Once removed, the toner comes in this white plastic tube with the same design as the box.
This toner actually has a pump, so a pump of two is enough.
The plastic cap is also quite hard, and can be a bit annoying to open and close. I guess this is also a good thing if you want to take it with you.
Because this has a pump dispenser you are sure you won’t spill it!
This toner contains 120ml so this will last you at least 3 months if you use it twice a day.
You can find the expiration date of the product at the bottom of the bottle.
I was really surprised that this toner is rose scented… And it can be quite overpowering.
If you’ve tried Mamonde Rose water, it smells like that but with a mix of saliva scent, if you can imagine it. I’m not really a fan of rose scented skincare so this put me off a little.
I was really imagining this of having a citrus scent because of the name “bitamin c” but there was nothing of that sort!
The texture of this scent is watery and clear.
One pump and a half is enough for the whole face.
By itself, this toner doesn’t really seem that special but when I combine it with the other Swanicoco products, I feel this helps in giving me clear looking skin and my skin isn’t as oily.
It is easily absorbed by the skin and does not leave you with a sticky feel.
It this toner wasn’t scented, I think I would like this even more.
I have been using this toner for almost a month and a half and I have seen a difference in the way my skin looks when I use this toner.
It doesn’t smell that good, but it works really well with other Swanicoco products.
The pump is a good sanitized way of getting the product, but if you pump too hard, it you splash you in the eye so be careful!
I would have liked if a part of the plastic bottle was see through so you could immediately see how much of the product is left. It could just be a line with a ruler design for example and you can see how much is let, when it’s time to get a new one.
I also like that they push the consumer to break the box open for more information, but I would have wished for more explanation in English. Graphics and bulletpoints are good, but sometimes you do need more clarifications.
Thank you Swanicoco for sending me this product.
I was surprised and despite the scent this is actually a good toner that is helping me have a clear skintone!
See you on the next review.
Note: this product was sent to me for review purposes. This is my honest opinion, no compensation was received for writing this.
Sorry for the absence. I had a bit of writer’s block … And the holidays kinda tired me.
I have too many overdue reviews, so let’s start catching up.
Let’s start with Swanicoco’s the bio theraphy 1st essence.
A couple of months ago, Swanicoco was looking for people to take part on their “Swan project”. If you were chosen, you would be sent products to review based on your skin type.
I was lucky enough to be selected as one of their newest swan!
Swanicoco is a Korean brand that is specialized in using bio and natural extracts!
This one is a first for me. Because of this, the prices of these products are a bit more expensive.
I was able to visit one of their stores in Seoul and the store is quite chic and they are still new. You can’t find these store that easily yet. I found this store in Ewha.
Let’s get back to business and go to our first review, the 1st essence.
This essence comes in a nice red aluminium box.
Most of the writing are in Korean though.
When you open the box, you’ll find that there is an extra layer of protection.
You can see may Dr Swanicoco drawing inside which I find pretty cool!
If you completely open the box you’ll find more explanation about the benefits of the product.
Elasticity,moisture, soothing and nutrition are the benefits of this product.
It is also mentioned on the box that you could use this as a mask.
Here is the bottle of the 1st essence.
This is a glass bottle with the same as the box and feels quite heavy and looks expensive imo.
It has a screw top opening and I feel it has some sort of dosing system as you really need to shake it to let the product out.
This bottle contains 100 ml so this should last you a couple of months, at least 3 months if you use it day and night.
This 1st essence is to be used after washing your face to prepare your skin for the next step.
It has a bit of a jelly like texture so it’s not that watery but it still have a more body that most 1st essence I have used. I would compare the texture to Klairs toner.
This doesn’t really have a scent which is great.
I have been using this 1st essence for a month now twice a day and night and find that this is a great product.
At first it feels sticky then after a minute it dries up and feels matte and if you wait a bit more you’ll feel your skin will be super soft to the touch.
I was really amazed by the evolution of the product once it touches your skin. It’s really magical, that’s really the only way I could explain it.
I do feel this prepares my skin for the next step as it smoothes it out and gives me a perfect canvas for the next product.
I usually shake the bottle 3 times to get enough product for my face. Because it has this jelly like texture it’s easy to apply and can be spread out evenly.
It won’t drip from your hands.
This is a great discovery and will already say this is my favorite Swanicoco product I have tried so far.
The texture is just magical, you just need to try it to understand!
This product can be a bit hard to find online. I think the only available seller right now is W2beauty but it’s quite costly at 51$… Hopefully there will be more sellers online that will offer this at a lower price soon.
Thank you Swanicoco for sending me this product. I am enjoying this very much, even my sister has started using this and loves the immediate results it gave.
This time it’s for Benton newest product, the my BFF bar soap for body & face.
Let’s get this started!
A couple of weeks ago, Benton was looking for reviewers for their newest product and I was one of the lucky reviewers.
This new soap bar is apparently even good for sensitive skin, to leave it clean without any bad reaction.
The packaging of this soap is quite nice. It makes it look like an envelop, or even perfect as a gift.
You have the explanation of the product in English, but also in Korean
Once you remove it from the box this is what you’ll find.
The soap is packed in plastic with the same explanation on the box.
This also comes with a foaming net to help you lather and foamy.
You are supposed to keep the soap dry after use, so you can use the net and hang it up
I first tried this on my face and it was quite easy to lather.
After cleansing my face, it dried it up, see the dry patches between my mouth and cheek!
No I did not like it at all.
Then I decided to try it on my body. As soon as you apply the foam and cleanse you’ll find your skin kind of lost it’s oil,as your hand will not glide on your skin. It’s like your hand has brakes and it just doesn’t feel soft.
I stopped using this on my face and body and just use it for my hands.
I have been using this for two weeks and even my dad, who LOVES bar soap did not like this at all… And that says a lot.
Unfortunately, this product is not for me.
The only difference I see after using this is that this made my skin dry and too squeeky clean.
I did like the smell of this soap, to me it reminds me of tea and that this comes with a net.
Apart from that, my skin did not like this at all.
Thank you Benton for sending me this soap, but I couldn’t get passed the dry feeling it left.
See you next time.
Note : this product was sent to me for review purposes. This is my honest opinion based on my experience.
