Laneige Water Bank Mineral Skin Mist Review:
Winter is not over yet and any moisture booster is gratefully welcome to save the dehydrated skin. Multiple skin care protection has been applied but the attack from room heater is unavoidably suck the good moisture from skin… And this is where the skin mist comes to the rescue! Yeah, I personally think the skin mist is an emergency aid anytime my skin feels tired or dry.
This product, Laneige Water Bank Mineral Skin Mist, was received as a gift from the store so it is smaller than the available size in market, only 30mL. The original price is KRW 15,000 for 60mL bottle and 24,000 for 120mL. It is said as a refreshing mist that gives tired skin a much needed boost. The Laneige Water Bank product itself has gained a really good reputation and became one of the best seller line of the renowned brand Laneige. Here is my review after using it for 2 months.
As taken from the official Laneige website, the product claims are as below:
+ Contains Optimal Mineral Water with a specific ratio of water and minerals that helps skin retain moisture, assisting in the cell cycle so that skin retains more moisture
+ Organic lemon verbena extract soothes irritated skin caused by UV rays, pollution, and dry air;
+ Parsley Purifying Complex stimulates skin’s natural filter for better cell cycle.
+ The light, refreshing fragrance with moisturizing effect lifts the mood; can be used repeatedly throughout the day to recharge tired skin.

Volume: I am using the 30ml bottle but for sale there are 60 ml and 120mL bottles.
How to use:
1. Spray about 20 cm away from the face with eyes (and mouth) closed whenever needed.
2. Usually one or two spray is enough. You can pat afterwards but not necessary.
3. The product also can be sprayed over make-up though I never actually try that.
My Skin Type: normal, not oily but blemish-prone, rather large pores in T-zone including blackheads.
Laneige Water Bank Mineral Skin Mist Review:
The mist is packaged in a translucent plastic spray bottle with blue color that reminds you of a fresh deep water. There is also a firm cap covering the pump.
The pump works well with a large range, it’s preferable, to minimize effort. I took a picture of the mist coverage by spraying it on a tissue.
When I sprayed it on my face, I immediately fall in love with the smell–very fresh but not too strong. I’m really into the fragrance thingy, so most of times I select products based on their smell (grin). It is also interesting to see the product use a lot of organic ingredients. Laneige also highlighted the lemon verbena extract to sooth irritated skin.
The texture of mist is just like water, I mean viscosity, color, and the feeling on the face. However, after it absorbed on the skin (and partially evaporated), I can tell it’s not an ordinary water.
The picture showed my hand right after spritzing the mist (from 3 cm away) and about one minute after, quick absorption. My hand looks well hydrated and moist.
On my face it leaves a little tacky feeling but not in a negative way, especially on my eyebrows. Perhaps those are the mineral and stuff that contained in the mist. I can feel my skin hydrated well, cooled down, and fresh.
There is no problem with oily face afterwards nor breakouts. I don’t see any long-term transformation on my skin, though. But it does work well for instant recovering from skin dehydration and tiredness. Oh hey, you can use this mist to eliminate that after-lunch-sleepiness as well. No joke, the smell is really uplifting.
Besides the little tackiness feeling on my eyebrows, I have no complain for this Water Bank Mineral Skin Mist. I might want to repurchase this but firstly I will try the Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Mist which put concern about the early signs of aging.
I can recommend this to everyone, really. Skin mist is often seen as less important component in the skin care routine. However, if you work in a dry condition, I think this Mineral Skin Mist is going to rescue your skin dehydration.
