LANEIGE Fresh Calming Toner & Morning Mask

Guys, I haven’t been this excited about a skincare line in a loooong time! Today we’re talking about two products from the LANEIGE Fresh Calming range – the LANEIGE Fresh Calming Toner and the LANEIGE Fresh Calming Morning Mask, but what’s a post written by me without some rambling first? :p

I definitely don’t say this enough, but I love living in Malaysia – the gorgeous places, the amazing people, and the food (guyysssss, the foooood). The one thing that I’m not a big fan of though, is the heat and the humidity. For someone who has very sensitive skin that’s prone to heat rashes on my face, I need to keep my skin hydrated and cool at all times. I would wake up and spend 12482 hours doing my makeup, walk outdoors for 30 minutes, and these red patches start flaring up. And let me tell you, they itch like a mother. Fast-forward 30 more minutes, I’ve scratched and rubbed all my makeup off and is walking around with a patchy red face.

There was a period of time, in May I think, that it got really bad. It even scared the lady doing my facial because once she took off my makeup, I was patchy everywhere lol. She thought I was having some severe allergic reaction to something she used. The only thing that worked to calm them down is to slather on a thick layer of Aloe Vera Gel and leave it on for an hour or so. This isn’t possible when I’m running errands, at class, or just anywhere other than home. I’ve flipped over every corner of the internet but nothing else seemed to work. I was on the verge of giving up when my prayers were answered by the skincare gods because LANEIGE dropped a new range that got rid of them for good.

Laneige Fresh Calming Toner & Morning Mask | The Best Skincare Range for Sensitive Skin

I sound like a walking ad because whenever a friend asks me for a skin care recommendation, I’d say the LANEIGE Fresh Calming range. It’s the perfect skincare range for anyone living in a hot, humid environment. Even if you don’t suffer from heat rash flare-ups, it soothes the skin and gives a cool, calming feeling. Not only that, it also hydrates your skin without feeling heavy or oily. Also, the LANEIGE Fresh Calming Morning Mask is the perfect morning moisturiser for anyone with oily/combination skin.

The LANEIGE Fresh Calming range is developed specially for combination skin, infused with their LANEIGE Skin EqualizingTM technology that soothes and moisturises the skin to regain healthy skin balance. This whole range aims to provide immediate moisturising and soothing effects for oily/combination skin that is dehydrated. Many times, our skin gets oily when it’s dehydrated because it produces more sebum to try to combat the dehydration. This LANEIGE Fresh Calming range is free of oil, animal ingredients, synthetic pigments, and triethanolamine. They are also hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested so they are suitable for even the most sensitive skin.

The two key ingredients in the LANEIGE Fresh Calming line is Lychee and Deep Sea Water. Natural lychee extract helps soothe the skin and also remove skin irritants. Not only that, lychee skin contains polyphenol, which is a powerful antioxidant. The polyphenol helps to soothe not only the surface of the skin but from deep within the skin layers as well. Deep Sea Water, on the other hand, is used for its moisturising properties. Because Deep Sea Water is rich in minerals, it keeps the skin hydrated and nourished. It also has antioxidant effects and protects skin from harmful UV rays.

The LANEIGE Fresh Calming Toner soothes and reinforces the skin’s moisture barrier. It balances the skin by maintaining the water to oil ratio. Can we first talk about that packaging? It’s not a big deal or anything but I freaking love the ombre effect and the transparent base! Also, at 250mls, it’s a pretty big bottle. I’ve been using it every morning for the past two months and I’ve barely used half the bottle.

I love using this in the morning because it cools and soothes my skin. It feels super refreshing in the morning, and it also has a fresh lychee scent that smells so amazing and wakes me up in the morning. I especially love this toner when it’s a little bit cold from sitting in my air-conditioned room overnight. It really helps to depuff my skin, making it look radiant and healthy.

Laneige Fresh Calming Morning Mask

This LANEIGE Fresh Calming Morning Mask is actually a moisturiser. Not just any moisturiser though, it is the best morning moisturiser ever. Most moisturisers I’ve tried are either too heavy for the morning time or leave a greasy layer on my skin that makes my makeup slide right off. The one thing I absolutely love about this product is that when you pump it out of the bottle, it is actually an airy mousse texture! Then I just spread it on my face and it turns into a lightweight watery moisturiser. It absorbs almost immediately, cooling the skin and deeply hydrating the skin.

This is great in the morning because it replenishes the lost moisture from the harsh air-conditioning. Not only that, it smoothes out any dry patches which help to prep the skin for makeup. It has a very soothing, aromatherapeutic scent which I absolutely love for the morning time!

I’m obsessed with these two products, and if you have sensitive skin or skin that is prone to redness, try them out – I promise you won’t regret it! I think it’s safe to say that the LANEIGE Fresh Calming Toner & Morning Mask has been my top skincare find of 2017 by far! I guess we’ll have to see at the end of the year in my yearly favourites if this has changed 😉
