Laneige Water Bank Gel Cream The Movie...Wait no. The Review.

I have been waiting weeks to do this review. 'Why?' you might ask. Because it's cream review. It's one of those things that I think you have to wait for a while(if you can) before you review them. I don't think it's an accurate review when you use them once. Now on to the review.

Today I have for you Water Bank Gel Cream from the Korean Brand Laneige. I received a full size pot for review from influenster.com. I was super excited that I was chosen to review this as it's the first time I have received anything from Influenster, and it was something I knew I would put to good use.

The product is described as 'A cooling, non-oily gel cream that immerses skin in moisture for 24 hours,' and is recommended for normal to combination skin. It comes in a sleek, 1.6 oz blue glass pot, and it is part of a 4-part system. The consistency of the cream is like a gel and a cream had a baby. It has a light scent to it that is a bit perfume-y(It smells exactly like a Lancôme night cream I own). It doesn't bother me, but those with sensitive noses may not love it as much. When you rub it into your skin it does feel really refreshing, while making your skin look healthy. And bonus points because it doesn't make you look greasy, as it absorbs quickly. It also plays nicely under primer and makeup. The pot also comes with a spatula, but I wasn't a fan of that. I always wash my hands thoroughly before sticking my fingers in and I found with the spatula I was less thorough with the cleaning. But that's just me.

Right after rubbing it into my skin. You would never know I had JUST put cream on.

I have been using this for around three weeks, 1-2 times a day and the pot is just past half way done(I'm sure it would be more had I been using it twice a day, every day) And while I can say I like it, I can't say I love it. Don't get me wrong, it's a good cream, but for $42 CND, the size, and the time it takes to go through the product, I don't think it's worth it. If you do buy it I don't think it's a bad investment because like I said before it's a great product, but I've used other things that are more than half the price that are just as good.

If you would like to give this a go, check it out over at sephora.ca or head over to your local Sephora, and pick one up for $42 CND.

*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
