REVIEW: Laneige Water Bank Gel Cream

I am back to do a second review of another product from Laneige’s Water Bank line. It is their gel cream. I previously did a review on the Water Bank eye cream.

This gel cream is said to activate moisturising genes to increase the production of NMF’s and thoroughly moisturise care from the 20th layer to the skin surface.

As mentioned in my previous review of the eye cream, I really love the packaging. I just think it is really beautiful as the glass packaging just adds a touch of elegance. However again, it is quite heavy so it is not travel friendly.

Much like the name suggests, the cream is gel like. It is very light and it absorbs onto the skin very well. I really like the way it makes my skin feel when applied. It leaves it feeling very soft and smooth. It also has a very nice fresh scent. Overall, my thoughts on this product is very similar to the Water Bank eye gel. Laneige is very consistent with their products and I look forward to trying more products from this line.

 

Pros:

  • Fresh scent
  • Very light
  • Softens and smoothens skin
  • Beautiful packaging

Cons:

  • Heavy packaging

Overall rating: 4.5/5
