I have very dry skin that’s sensitive and prone to breakouts. What a task it is then to find skin care that’s hydrating (especially in the Canadian winter) that doesn’t break me out or cause a reaction. I’m so glad that I got the chance to try out LANEIGE’s Water Bank Serum through the Influenster program. This product is part of a water themed and infused line from Korean skin care brand, LANEIGE. There is also a moisturizer, cleanser, sleeping mask, and more.

I’ve always thought the idea of a serum in addition to my moisturizer was a good one, but where to start? Well, lightweight was important because I don’t want a heavy feel that clogs my pores. I also wanted something that was low on fragrances and other irritants.

This product fits all of my criteria. It’s very very lightly scented, absorbs quickly into my skin, and is incredibly lightweight. The “Water Bank” name is very appropriate given how light and watery/gel like the serum is. I use it right after cleansing in the morning, before my moisturizer and primer. Ever with all those layers, the absorption is great and my makeup still stays put over everything.

The other thing I’m really liking about the product is how pretty it is. It’s elegant and looks great on my makeup vanity. No hiding ugly containers in drawers.

LANEIGE Water Bank Serum retails for $46 CAD on Sephora’s site. (2 oz/60ml). Value wise, it’s great compared to the Avene Eau Thermale Serum I used to use but can no longer find for purchase in Canada. The LANEIGE Water Bank Serum comes it at roughly half the cost per ml as my previous go to.
