I was able to take advantage of an amazing deal from Beauteque.com for a free sample pack of Korean beauty products. I actually was supposed to receive two but the second pack has not arrived yet. You can read about everything I got in my review post.
That product is Lioele WaterDrop Sleeping Pack. The sample was really small and contained only about enough for two applications but even with that I was seriously impressed.
On the box it says:
“By including Swiss Alpine extract, it is absorbed without stickiness and also formulates moisturizing film to supply moisture and nutrition onto tired skin by daytime to keep your skin moisturized until next day” (sic) And it really does all that!
The first night I used this, I woke up in the morning with skin so soft and glowing I couldn’t believe it. The second time I used it, I got the same results. So I went and bought a full size tube! I was quite skeptical of the claims at first because it was such a weird texture and it was a strange bluish color. There are no colors listed in the ingredients so it must result from one of the plant extracts?
The best ingredient is hyaluronic acid which is an amazing moisturizer and can hold 1000x its weight in water. When applied topically, hyaluronic acid holds water onto the surface of the skin while allowing the skin to ‘breathe’.
Maybe its because of the hyaluronic acid or something else but while this splootches out of the tube like the above picture, the second you touch it and rub it in, it transforms into a liquid. It has a very slight scent which disappears after it dries. More clean than flowery, thankfully. I don’t like flowery scents.
It takes a bit of massaging to get it to soak completely into your skin but ohhhh the results! Your face will glow! It is water based so you want to make sure that it goes onto your skin before any oil based moisturizers or face creams. I’ve skipped the last step of my normal routine since I started using this. Usually the last product I apply is an oil based moisturizer which provides a natural barrier and keeps all the water based creams underneath it. Loosely scientific, I know. Oil and water don’t mix!
One other side effect I’ve noticed is that in the morning, besides being soft, my skin is NOT greasy at ALL! Normally no matter what I’ve put on my face the night before, I wake up with slightly greasy skin. With Lioele Waterdrop Sleeping Pack there is NO grease film. My skin is completely smooth and soft.
So far, I highly recommend this! It is not, however, paraben free, so if you are only using “natural” or organic products, this is not for you, sadly.
