Blog #14: Let's Go SPArty with Laneige

Wake up to vibrant moisturized skin, perfectly-rested overnight.

You know how during elections, we get these never-ending promises of good life, abundant food on everyone's tables, etc? Laneige has its own vow they want us to take a leap of faith on and they sure are preppin' a whole lot to prove this to us.

It was weeks ago when I received an invite from @lovinglaneighph, Laneige PH's official Instagram account. They were having a special SPA party exclusively for beauty bloggers and they wanted me to come. ME? As in yours truly??? I'm quite new to this blogging thing and it's a wonder at that time why they chose me. But then Mela from Laneige thanked me for my "Beauty and the Best" post here (backtrack a little) that hailed Song Hye Kyo as the Cosmetics Ad Beauty to beat. So who am I to complain, right?

I said yes and off I went last Tuesday, July 7! I wouldn't miss the chance to know more about one of my favorite brands especially after finding out that they'll be unveiling a beloved product with a new formula.

At exactly 6:30PM, I left SM Megamall to go to Ace Water Spa. Yes, you read it right. This bingu went to Ace Water Spa in United St. despite the invite clearly telling me the venue was BLUE WATER DAY SPA in San Juan. By the time I got to United St. and received a text from Mela that I went to the wrong spot, my heart sank. I went to all the trouble (of heavy rain and traffic) and actually went to the wrong place??? WHAT THE HELL???

But no, I won't be defeated. I took a minute to compose myself and clear my head. I gave my word that I will attend and so I need to go to Blue Water Day Spa whatever happens.

After so many prayers and walks in wedge, I finally reached the place. I was just in time, apparently, since Mela was doing her introduction when I went in. She welcomed me warmly and handed me my personalized robe which perked up my mood.

The atmosphere was so casual. My fellow beauty bloggers were all clad in robes and relaxing on their respective couches, each being pampered with special services by the Laneige ladies.

Of course I got mine too. The services given were:
  • Foot Spa
  • Hand Massage
  • Head Massage
  • Back Massage
  • Laneige Skin Care Trial
  • Make-over

Among the services given, I enjoyed the Laneige Skin Care Trial and make-over the most. I was able to try out Laneige's core skin line along with the Water Sleeping Mask and Lip Sleeping Mask. 

First off in the Skin Care Trial was the make-up remover, Fresh Brightening Cleansing Oil.

Laneige Cleansing Oil

I have super oily skin so oil-based products are a no-no for me but the Laneige lady assured me that it's lightweight and lightweight it was! It effectively cleansed my heavily-made up face without washing! After that, my lips and eyes were treated to a different type of cleanser, Speedy and Safe Lip and Eye Remover (no, you won't lose your eyes and lips, I guarantee haha) Waterproof which is non-sticky because it's water-based:

As proof, here are my GLAM:

and BAM (barely-made) face:

Laneige Make-Over

 *SIGH* Make-ups a real buddy. haha

After stripping me off of my make-up, I was treated to a brightening toner, White Plus Renew Skin Refiner.

It promises a brighter and smoother skin over time and is good for all skin type. What I love about it is that it feels like I'm not wearing anything at all! I remember telling the Laneige lady how I love the feel of it on my skin. 

After letting the toner dry for 20 seconds, the star of the night, the Laneige Water Sleeping Mask was applied.

It was like putting a veil on my skin that gradually melted into a soft, silky texture. I love that it felt cool and relaxing. I love that I can feel my skin getting moisturized and having its much-needed rest.

I thought it was over but the Laneige lady came up to me with a new product, the Lip Sleeping Mask in a very cute pink packaging!

I was expecting it to be too waxy and sticky and I was surprised (in a good way) to find out that it feels like a mix of lip gloss and balm.

But the night wasn't over. We were treated to a total make-over, from hair to make-up. I didn't get the braid sesh since I have super short hair but I grabbed the opportunity to try out Laneige's latest make-up products.

Laneige Make-over

Excuse my ultra-oily face. To combat the grease, the BB Cushion was applied on my face.

I heard it's one of their best-sellers and I found out why. It's definitely lightweight compared to Missha and Iope and the coverage is very natural. I tried out #33.

I've been stressing since earlier that I have extremely oily skin and I love that the Laneige lady figured it out. She applied a powder pact that's both innovative and easy on the skin, the Brush Pact. It comes in various types like powder, highlighter, blusher and pore blur.

Every girl must know that the shape of one's brow determines how you want people to view your look. Wide forehead needs arched eyebrows while straight (korean-like) brows looks great with small forehead. Mine's the latter and Laneige knew how to deal with it using the Brow Shaping Kit.

Next up, the eyes. Just like the brows, I usually take long doing my eyes. The Laneige lady wanted a smoky eye on me so she used this Pure Radiant Shadows Palette:

Since I already had smoky eyes, my cheeks needed a subtle glow. Pure Radiant Blush made this possible.

Last, let's not forget the lips. This Silk Intense Lipstick in Miss Sunshine looks incredibly subtle and sexy.

And here's my new look after the make-over!

Sorry for the blurry pics. Was a bit pressed for time. :(

The night was so fun. Besides the cool pampering and beautifying sesh, we were treated to cute snacks apt for the sleepyhead.
