Your Holy Grail Lip Balm

Are you searching for a minimal effort step to add into your beauty routine that will make your sad and flaky lips plump and kissable?

Look no further! The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is soul(lip)mate you’ve been dreaming of.

I first purchased this sleeping mask when I saw KathleenLights talk about it on her YouTube channel. Personally, I love KathleenLights, so as soon as she mentioned all the miracles it had been working for her, I immediately hunted it down at my nearest Sephora.

Fun Fact: Did you know that influencer marketing / word of mouth is one of the most powerful and persuasive forms of marketing? If someone you trust raves about a product, you’re significantly more likely to go out and purchase it for yourself. In fact, the strength and conversion rate of influencer / word of mouth marketing is why so many companies have product testimonials all over their website. Having other customers speak kindly of a brand goes much further to establish trust than hearing it from the brand itself.

Now, there are four flavors of this sleeping mask (vanilla, grapefruit, apple lime, and original which is a mixed berry scent), two of which are now available on Sephora. The sleeping mask is marketed as providing the following benefits to its users:

  • Lip Sleeping Mask has a softening balm texture that closely adheres to lips for quick absorption.
  • Enriched with vitamin C and antioxidants, its Berry Mix Complex™ offers a nutritiously sweet and fragrant blend of raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, and blueberry extracts to indulge the senses.
  • Exclusive Moisture Wrap™ technology boasts hyaluronic acid and minerals to form a protective film over the lips to lock in moisture and active ingredients.
  • A generous layer of this soothing mask at bedtime helps reduce flakiness so you can wake up to lips that feel refreshed, supple, and soft to the touch.

Initially, Sephora only carried the original flavor which in my opinion smells exactly like a strawberry banana smoothie. I also recently added the vanilla flavor to my collection and I really enjoy it as vanilla is hands down one of my favorite scents.

Holy cannoli this mask is incredible. I have some of the driest skin around and if I’m not careful to add lip balm like my life depends on it, they can start to look real sad real quick. But this mask has totally changed my duck face selfie game.

After exfoliating, and brushing my teeth of course (I’m not gross, you’re gross), I’ll smear a big ole glob of this stuff all over my lips and by morning, they’re juicy, smooth, and ready to be dried out with a liquid lipstick once again.

Pro Tip: Although this product is marketed as a lip mask, you can get away with using it as a balm if you go in with a slightly lighter hand. This was actually the only lip balm I packed for my week on the east coast and even though I had been wearing lipstick every day, my lips had never looked better.

Of course I’m just one person and my holy grail might be your arch nemesis, but for me, this product truly lived up to every single one of its promises. I recommend this lip mask to anyone who will listen so now, since you’ve made it this far, that person is you! Give this one a shot – you won’t be disappointed.
