Laniege’s Moisture Bank Water Cream is a great balance between lightweight and effective moisturizing. It doesn’t feel heavy, and yet makes my skin feel thoroughly moisturized.  I use it in the mornings over my vitamin C serum and before my sunscreeen.  I haven’t noticed any difference in my makeup.  Importantly, I don’t find my face a greasy mess by the end of the day, whether the weather is warm or cool.

 My Skine Type 

I have normal to dry skin with some sensitivity/rosacea.  If I use the wrong product, my skin will hurt or get oily.  I find products intended for sensitive and dry skin work best for me.

Product Description

Laniege says its product is a richly-textured moisturizing cream that strengthens and retains long-lasting moisture.  

It hydrates and relieves dry skin with “Hydro Ionized Mineral Water” and “Biogen technology” that delivers long-lasting moisture to relieve dry skin.

Laniege also claims its Water Bank Cream strengthens skin’s natural moisture barrier.  “Olive squalane and glasswort extracts strengthen skin’s natural moisture barrier to help retain optimal moisture levels.”
