A few months ago I did a really large haul at Sephora and picked up a few skincare sets, including this Laneige Brightening Kit. This kit retails for $18 only so these radiance-boosting products are pretty small, but they will still last for more than just a week or two for you to really test out the results. And it is still available on Sephora Canada!
MULTI CLEANSER – If you have dry skin, you may find this cleanser slightly stripping but for an oily girl like me, I absolutely love how soft and clean my skin feels everytime I use it. I tend to use something more mild in the morning, so I like to use it as my second cleanser at night (after makeup removal) to make sure there is no residual makeup. And since its a foaming cleanser that lathers really well, it works perfectly with cleansing tools like a Clarisonic Mia if you want your skin to be squeaky clean! The size the cleanser comes in with this kit is really generous as well and will last quite a while.
BRIGHT RENEW ORIGINAL SERUM – Since the size of this serum is pretty small, I only used it in the morning when I was trying out the whole kit. In combination with the cream, I noticed that my complexion was brightened after 3-4 days of continuous use! A little goes a long way with this serum and it has a nice slip to it, so you don’t need a lot of product to cover your entire face and neck. However, like a lot of Korean skincare products on the market, this serum is quite fragrant. Personally, I find the scent to be quite lovely and since it doesn’t linger once the product slowly absorbs into the skin, I don’t really mind it!
BRIGHT RENEW ORIGINAL CREAM – This cream, like the serum, contain Melacrushe brightening technology to eliminate discolouration. I didn’t notice a visible change in the improvement of my acne scarring from the two weeks of testing out the product, but like I said above, my overall complexion was definitely brighter! I like to use this cream in replacement of my regular day cream because it helps protect my skin from free radicals, and it gives a lovely glow to the skin. I also love the texture of this cream – it’s light and very hydrating, without making me feel extra greasy throughout the day. The scent is also not as strong in comparison to the serum if that’s something that may bother you.
WATER SLEEPING MASK – I was most excited about this product when I picked up this kit, and it did not disappoint! This is an overnight mask that help recharge dehydrated skin while you sleep. With a thin layer, the highly concentrated ionized mineral water and ceramides hydrates and rejuvenates your skin, leaving it plump and moisturized when you wake up. It’s a gel consistency and it absorbs into the skin very quickly, without leaving a film. My skin feels extra soft and supple every time I use it and if you want to nourish your skin even more, you can layer other products over it and it will not get all goopy and gross.
All in all, I find that this kit is really worth it for its price and I think it’s a great option if you’re looking to test out products that will brighten and hydrate your skin. I will most probably repurchase the water sleeping mask and the bright original cream, and I actually still have quite a lot of the cleanser left since I have a few on rotation. None of these products broke me out or irritated my sensitive skin and they all delivered their claims so I consider this a win! Have you tried any of these products and what are your thoughts on them? Let me know!
