Laneige Water Bank Cream

This cream retails at Sephora for $45 which will give you 50ml/1.6oz jar.  This product is a beautiful option for those of us who have dry, sensitive skin.  I picked this product up a while ago, and it is pretty…ok.  I really love the Laneige brand.  I adore the sleeping masks, and this product for me was just OK.

I feel that this cream would be excellent for someone who has seasonally dry skin and just needs a little boost.   If you have severely dry skin, this wouldn’t be the product for you.  It didn’t break me out, but for the money, I feel that there are better options available on the market.

I like that the company is not using parabens and phthalates, but I would like to see them go for a cruelty-free status.  They currently sell products in mainland China where animal testing is mandatory.
