Review: Laneige Strawberry Yogurt Pack

This was given to me by my friends who went to Korea. This wasn't with the gift pack that they had originally given me so it wasn't included in that picture.

Ingredient list for those who are interested

The last line says that it is recommended to keep this product refrigerated during the summer

I have recently been using My Beauty Diary masks where the product is on an actual paper type of cutout mask. This strawberry yogurt pack reminds me of the masks that I am familiar with where you apply it on and let it sit on your skin.

Directions: Apply after cleansing and toning. Evenly spread quarter-sized amount on your face. Massage it in until the little red particles dissipate. Leave it on your skin for 5 to 10 minutes and then rinse it off with warm water. Use it once or twice a week. It is best to store it in a ventilated, cool place.

It is very pleasantly strawberry scented which isn't strong or over powering. It feels really nice, smooth and cool on your skin. Unlike old-fashioned masks, it isn't thick and opaque at all. It's actually quite sheer so it's not so startling to family members if you are sitting around with it on. After rinising it off, my skin felt very smooth and hydrated. I actually used it in the morning and did my makeup afterwards. Even after I washed my face off that night, some 15 hours later, my skin still felt really nice and smooth. I really like this face mask. This will probably be on my Korea wish list for when my friends travel to Korea again. (They actually just came back yesterday but I didn't have a wish list for them this time.)

This sounds nice! I have used many various paper cut-out masks here in Japan, so its nice to see non paper ones still exist!

I seldom purchase Korean products these days, I'm all about Made in Japan LOL!

Wash off masks are nice, but I still prefer sheet masks for the convenience factor. Which is your favourite MBD flavour?

@Brianna--it is truly, very nice indeed. I've only been using the paper cut out masks so this was really a change of pace. It's definitely not anything like the old fashioned ones that I remember seeing and trying--the ones that dry into an almost caked on mask or the ones that dry and you peel off. This one is really refreshing and it doesn't take a whole lot of time.

@Blair--I really love Japanese products too. The one unfortunate thing is that the USD is so weak against the yen right now that it's making things quite expensive. There are items that I'd like to get but have to hold back for now because of the high cost of it. As for Korean products, I've been fortunate to be able to get samples from people and actual full products from my friends who go to Korea. She likes Korean products so she'll buy them as gifts for me. That's the only way that I will even try anything. I've been fortunate to have received things that I really like and would want to repurchase.

As for MBD, my absolute favorite is the Black Pearl, followed by Natto. I was so scared of trying the natto since I detest the edible one but fortunately, the MBD natto mask is quite pleasantly scented.

@mica--Thanks for visiting, commenting and following!

I didn't know that there's a peel-off mask too. Then again, I don't know much about Korean brand products so it's always fun when my friends bring back things for me.

I've always wanted to try this. Thanks for the review! :D I can imagine just how nice the cream will feel and how nice it'll smell! :)

@Rainy Days and Lattes--I think that it's especially nice on a hot summer night because you need to keep it in the refrigerator and it feels sooo cooling and soothing going on. The fact that it smells so yummy is a bonus.
