Blog #43:Youthful Glowing Skin - Laneige Perfect Renew Regenerator First Impressions


Finally after a long hiatus, I'm back! I've been out for awhile because something big just happened to my personal life. I've just received the biggest blessing I've been praying for for years. Yes, I'm 19 weeks pregnant! I was extra cautious during my first trimester that's why I concentrated on keeping myself and my little one healthy and decided to delay my blog posts until I enter my second trimester.


And so we passed the more dangerous stage! Second trimester in and I'm back to being active again on social media. I'm very thankful to cosmetics brands like Laneige PH who continue to update me with their latest products so that I can share with you, beauties. And speaking of which, I just received Laneige's latest skincare line, the Perfect Renew Regenerator which came in yesterday.

This is actually the perfect gift I can ask for at this stage of my life. For those who don't know, I'm already at my 30s and I'm very aware of how important it is to start taking care of my skin at an early age. Just because I'm going to be a mom doesn't mean I have to neglect taking care of myself plus add to the fact that heat in our country is seriously bringing trouble and danger to skin. It's so important to hydrate and moisturize properly to maintain a youthful glow to your skin. So when Laneige gave me this beautiful package, I was itching to unbox!

It's seriously blinding! The dominantly-royal blue packaging is brilliant. It gives off a sense of purity and calm. Add to that the very beautiful image of Korean superstar, Song Hye Kyo, who's receiving so much fame now more than ever after hitting daebak with her latest series, Descendants of the Sun.

Who here already watched that series? It was so good! The chemistry between Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki is just seriously off the hook! I love that the series appealed not only to female viewers but to males as well. Even my husband applauded after watching the last episode. Haha



Anyway, enough of my gushing over DOTS and let's get down and pretty. The kit comprises of five (5) products, four (4) travel-sized and one (1) regular-sized skincare:


  • Laneige Perfect Renew Regenerator (40ml)
  • Laneige Perfect Renew Emulsion (15ml)
  • Laneige Perfect Renew Skin Refiner (15ml)
  • Laneige Perfect Renew Cream (10ml)
  • Laneige Perfect Renew Eye Cream (3ml)


I did some sampling to have an idea of the products' benefits, texture, coverage and fragrance.


  • LANEIGE PERFECT RENEW REGENERATOR - a high concentrated serum with light texture that is easily absorbed for long-lasting moisture

    • Benefits - promises to: restore damaged skin, enrich moisture, brighten skin tone with natural gloss, keep skin texture sleek and fine, improve fine wrinkles and enhance skin elasticity
    • Texture - for a serum, it's surprisingly light and non-sticky with a liquidy, almost watery texture
    • Coverage - it goes on sheer and once absorbed by the skin (which takes fast, about a half a minute after applying) blends into a natural sheen
    • Fragrance - very mild

  • LANEIGE PERFECT RENEW EMULSION - emulsion that helps to enhance moisture barrier to better resist irritants



Laneige Perfect Renew Regenerator Makeup Review




    • Benefits - balances oil and moisture levels in the skin, protects skin and has an anti-wrinkle function
    • Texture -  I was expecting it to be sticky since it's a lotion but it feels lighter than most moisturizers / emulsions I've used and tested
    • Coverage - almost similar to the Perfect Renew Regenerator as both blends into a natural sheen cover for the skin
    • Fragrance - mild

  • LANEIGE PERFECT RENEW SKIN REFINER - a gel-type skin refiner that absorbs into the skin to replenish moisture and youth energy

    • Benefits - contains a technology that rejuvenates skin through flavonoid component extracted from the galangal root that increases skin energy and ceramide water which is core moisturizing factor of the Perfect Renew line that's been upgraded to imitate skin barrier and thoroughly moisturize skin to have a more powerful, hydrating effect
    • Texture -  a bit stickier than the emulsion and Regenerator due to its gel-type formula but blends into a non-greasy texture
    • Coverage - fades into a mild shine to the skin
    • Fragrance - mild

  •  LANEIGE PERFECT RENEW CREAM - a face-rejuvenating cream that helps skin strengthen its barrier

    • Fragrance - mild

    1. That was my main concern as well as I've been reading a lot of stuff about the no nos in using makeup for pregnant women like me. I researched about it ans got assurance from Laneige's official IG that they're products were deemed generally safe for expectant moms. :)

  10. First of all, congrats on your pregnancy! As for the products, is it safe to use even if you're pregnant? My family was so praning when I got pregnant before so they all stopped me from using anything on my skin.
