REVIEW: Laneige Water Bank Eye Gel

The review i’m doing today is more of a first impression. It is on the Water Bank Eye Gel by Laneige. This product actually belongs to my brother and because I have been so curious about Laneige for a while now, I decided to try it out. This product is part of their Water Bank line. Along with this product, I have also tried another product from this line and it is their gel cream, however I will be reviewing that on a separate post.

The cream comes in a VERY heavy glass tub. It looks and feels luxurious but the weight isn’t travel friendly at all. Inside the box, at the bottom you will find a small plastic spatula which you use to scoop up the product which I like as it’s more hygienic.

Firstly, I love the consistency of this cream. It’s extremely light and feels very nice when massaged onto the skin. I think the smell of this is incredible. It’s very very fresh and it’s also very hydrating. A little goes a long way with this stuff so this should last quite a while. I will very much consider purchasing this in the future.

Pros:

  • Beautiful packaging
  • Comes with a spatula
  • Light consistency
  • Hydrating
  • Smells very good

Cons:

  • More on the expensive side

 

Overall rating: 4.5/5
