Review: Laneige Moisture New Essential Care Trial Set! (6 piece mini sized)

Laneige Moisture New Essential Care Trial! Laneige has been a very mainstream korean brand in Asia and in the last few years has gotten plenty of attention in other countries too! I remember using the water sleeping pack a year before Laneige even was sold in Singapore at all as my mom purchased it in-flight! For those unaware, almost every year around year end Laneige carries a set of mini sized products from their moisture line. In the past I'd bought a set for a beauty blogger friend but it was a larger set where a few of the products were much larger than those in this set.

For those who are keen on trying products from this line, do jump on the opportunity if you manage to spot this set! It's an amazing value for money and you get quite a few products to try out instead of just 3 or 4 products like many small sets.

Continue below for my review!

Laneige Moisture New Essential Care Trial Set! Detailed ingredients listing of each of the products included in this set!
Look at the amount of instructions and even pictorials for using the products! The pamphlet had a few different languages though, so that's why it was so large!
Laneige Moisture New Essential Care Trial Set! Multi Cleanser!

The first step and product in this kit and almost my favorite as well as the first thing that got used up! This multi cleanser is a gentle type of foaming wash that has a lovely scent. It's a type of fresh, cool, menthol type scent that I find so good. This wash leaves my face just right, not to tight and definitely with softer skin. I think this would be a great buy full sized if you're of normal to slightly oily skin and you want a cleanser that you can use both in the day or night.

Laneige Moisture New Essential Care Trial Set! Power Essential Skin Refiner!
This skin refiner lotion is basically a softener which is meant to be used in place of a toner especially for those who don't have oily skin. The scent of this is exactly like their sleeping pack which is a lovely light, fresh dewy scent with a hint of menthol. Unlike some other softeners I've used this one is just the tiniest bit viscous. Some tend to be thicker to the point of being somewhat slimey which I really don't like although the whole point is to be a moisturizing formula unlike traditional toners with alcohol based ones. 

This definitely a great to use at the end of the day either if I've had no make up on or after I've removed my make up. This leaves my feeling free of extra oil, clean and yet not tight or dry. This product is pretty nice but there are very similar from the drugstore like from Aqua Label and other taiwanese/japanese brands which are cheaper.

Laneige Moisture New Essential Care Trial Set! Balancing Emulsion!
Much like the rest of the line this balancing emulsion has the same scent as the skin refiner but much lighter. It has the texture of super lightweight moisturizer that on contact becomes slightly watery and is absorbed super fast. Straight out of the bottle, it seems like a typical thick moisturizer but it isn't greasy or creamy at all and would be very suitable for those with combination skin. 

There are many nights where I will just use the skin refiner and this product if I'm feeling lazy and it's still enough to plump up any dryer areas in my face and yet my oilier areas like my forehead and nose aren't too greasy in the morning. I would recommend a product like this full sized if you're in need of a light moisturizer that would be great for normal to slightly oily skin.

Laneige Moisture New Essential Care Trial Set! Water Bank Essence!
This is my third favorite product behind the sleeping pack and cleanser! It's literally like a slightly more more serum like texture of the sleeping pack. The sleeping pack is like a whipped water based gel and takes a short while to dry, whereas this dries down even faster and also leaves the skin feeling super soft with a velvety layer from this product. This definitely does plump up any fine lines around the mouth and relief any dry areas. I found myself reaching for this when I didn't want anything heavy or that took a while to dry.

For those who don't want the sleeping pack because you're not keen on leaving it over night or having to have it on for a while, this literally is the next best thing! You'll get the very similar effects as the sleeping pack as well as feel without having to apply as much and to wait for as long for it to dry! I still recommend getting the sleeping pack, coming from someone who almost never wears face masks!

Now on to the two of my favorite products from the bunch! The water sleeping pack and bank moisture cream! The much famed sleeping pack is a watery whipped serum texture that's completely non-greasy, not creamy and absorbs into the skin very quickly after application. The product literally melts into a watery substance once touched with hands and after it's dried down on the skin, it feels velvety but slightly dewy. The mask if meant to be worn over night on clean skin and then washed off in the morning. The skin feels so soft in the morning as well as laugh lines and other dry areas smoothen and plumped up. I love this product as not only does it smell like a fresh, cold, morning dew with a hint of menthol but that it's so cooling and reduces any puffiness and makes tired skin happy!

The bank moisture cream looks like a traditional cream in the tub, with a thick moussy texture. Once on the skin, it's actually a very lightweight moisturizer and it feels super velvety. It smells like a very faint version of the sleeping pack. This product really is good for the nights when parts of your face is feeling dry or when you're in need of more deep hydration. Despite being more like a regular tub moisturizer, it would be totally suitable for those with combination skin!

Swatched below are the water bank essence and balancing emulsion! Overall every product has a super lightweight, watery type texture once applied on the skin with the exception of the moisture cream. These textures are great for layering lightly and absorb very quickly into the skin as well as being suitable for sensitive and slightly oily skin.

Laneige Moisture New Essential Care Trial Set! (Cleanser, skin refiner, balancing emulsion, water bank essence, water sleeping pack, water bank moisture cream)
Paid: $39 SGD or $27.50 USD 

(This is such a great deal considering the same products full size cost between $30-50 SGD)

Recommend: YES. This is such a value for money set, you get to try 6 products from the line, which is practically the whole line and you all the products are a great larger than deluxe sample size. You will be using these products for at least 2-3 months if you use them daily!

Repurchase: Yes, not this exact set unless it's for someone else. I totally will be going back to full certain products from them full sized!

Bottom line: Overall this set is an awesome deal, the products are suitable for those with normal to combination skin! The textures are light, watery, cooling and dry quickly. I love the fresh, icy, slightly menthol scent of the products and how you get 6 products, all in great sizes. These products are great for intense hydration so tired skin gets perked up quickly.

  1. This is a nice kit!! I love Laneige and have tried almost every thing in their skin care line ( for my skin type ) and I have yet to find something I don't like from the line. Their price point is affordable compare to other 'higher end' asian skin care brands like Kose, Kanebo, SK II etc.
    My favorite is the skin emulsion and toner for combination skin, sleeping mask, and water bank essence ^^
