LANEIGE Water Bank Korean Skincare Review

"Water Bank"- LANEIGE : Quench Your Skin with Hydration

Here's a little riddle: Name the one and only bank your skin would go to.

Have an answer? (Drum-roll please...) LANEIGE Water Bank!

LANEIGE is one of the world's leading beauty brands, a brand under Amorepacific, Korea's no.1 beauty brand that aims to provide innovative solutions to cater to different beauty needs. Launched in 1994, LANEIGE has since done extensive research about the interaction between water and skin, and found that skin damage is attributable to weakening of skin barrier and inability to retain moisture. Then, LANEIGE discovered Water Science, a unique, core technology that converts water to explosive moisture energy to provide hydrating, brightening and anti-aging effects to the skin.

LANEIGE Water Science

LANEIGE's new and improved  LANEIGE Water Bank skincare contains Green Mineral Water extracted from vegetables through a process called Ocean Brew whereby high concentration of minerals are extracted and preserved at low temperatures for 5 hours before it is further processed. Because of this process, LANEIGE's Water Bank line provides your skin with a burst of deep moisture and strengthen your skin barrier, to prevent skin damage and premature aging. Today, it has become a favourite among Asian women with over 32 million cumulative sales as of 2018, and a go-to product to achieve clear, dewy, and healthy-looking skin.

To help you get started, here is a guide to selecting the best LANEIGE's Water Bank products to suit your skin type and needs.


Clear, Dewy Skin Never Goes out of Style

It also contains antioxidant-rich garden cress to keep your skin clear, dewy and radiant without greasiness.
