The Update To Vaseline We’ve Been Waiting For — Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
Let’s talk about the cutesy pink lip mask you’ve been eyeing in Sephora. Yeah.. you’re gonna’ need that. The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is a little slice of luxury for your lips, and the update to Vaseline we’ve been waiting for. No lie.
First things first, if you’re not applying some sort of lip chap before bed, what is you doin’ baby? I used to be a Vaseline/Chapstick at-night-girl myself, but soon discovered this thicc, smell-good lip mask and welp, I won’t be going back.
It’s full of occlusives that ensure well moisturized and supple lips overnight. What’s an occlusive? Think, Vaseline. Waxy like ingredients that create a barrier over the skin, and locks in moisture. Occlusives are the reason your grandmothers and aunties stayed Vaseline’d up at night, and probably still slay to this day.
Sometime last year, I noticed fine lines forming on my upper lip and NOPE. Who has time for wrinkles? So I put in a Christmas request (thanks Ma!) and it quickly became a staple. All thanks to the Vitamin C and antioxidants there was a noticeable difference in my fine lines — and overtime my lips appeared brighter, not to mention smoother.
The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask texture is thicker and stickier than Vaseline, so it stays put. Unless of course, you like to eat in bed like moi, then you’ll have to re-apply. The juicy berry scent is absolutely invigorating, and great topper to the end of a solid skincare routine.
Quick Note: If you’re a little iffy about the price add it to your Christmas list like I did, but trust, it’s worth the $20. I got this in December of last year, and it’s still not empty (as photographed above). It also comes with an applicator so you can slather on a thick layer before bed. We’re getting older folks, and so are those lips, protect them while you still can.
