LANEIGE | *NEW* Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Collection: Review
If you haven't already heard, LANEIGE recently revamped their bestselling Water Bank collection with a brand new look and an updated formulation.

LANEIGE | Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Exfoliating Toner (C$40 for 160 ml):
Housed in a sleek matte bottle with an oversized cap, the Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Exfoliating Toner is a gentle exfoliating toner formulated with gluconolactone (a PHA/polyhydroxy acid) and a smaller-sized "blue hyaluronic acid" that better penetrates the skin for longer hydration. With a very light floral scent that reminds me of the Guerlain meteorites powder, the Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Exfoliating Toner has a watery consistency. The formulation is instantly soothing on the skin and doesn't leave behind any residue. There's no irritation or drying, so the toner is probably great for all skin types. I don't think this is a must-have but a rather nice addition to your skincare routine if you are looking for an extra boost of hydration.

Housed in a cube-shaped plastic jar with a much more minimalist and youthful feel than the old packaging, the Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Cream Moisturizer is a lightweight cream moisturizer formulated with blue hyaluronic acid, squalane, ceramides, and green tea extract. With the same light floral scent as the toner, the moisturizer has a lightweight yet nourishing texture that instantly sinks into the skin, leaving behind a non-greasy finish. The Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Cream Moisturizer is great for both day and night and it keeps my skin hydrated and supple. The formulation contains silicone but it doesn't have that heavy, palpable silicone feel, which I am thankful for. Overall, this is a great moisturizer. I would definitely recommend it to those with dry or combo skin looking for a nourishing but lightweight moisturizer.

Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Squalane, Sucrose Polystearate, Pentaerythrityl Tetraethylhexanoate, Methyl Trimethicone, Dibutyl Adipate, 1,2-Hexanediol, Glyceryl Stearate, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Bis-Hydroxyethoxypropyl Dimethicone, Stearyl Dimethicone, Caprylic/Capric/Myristic/Stearic Triglyceride, Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Cetyl Alcohol, Propanediol, Octadecene, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Fragrance / Parfum, Xanthan Gum, Glyceryl Caprylate, Dextrin, Tromethamine, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium Edta, Sorbitan Isostearate, Allantoin, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Beta-Glucan, Ceramide Np, Myristic Acid, Arachidic Acid, Lactobacillus Ferment Lysate, Tocopherol, Undaria Pinnatifida Extract.

LANEIGE | Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic Eye Cream (C$55 for 25 ml):
Packaged in a smaller version of the blue cube jar, the Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic is a hydrating and brightening eye cream containing blue hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, caffeine, and coconut oil. With a slightly thicker consistency (likely due to the higher silicone content), the eye cream spreads nicely on the skin, providing instant moisturization. A little goes a long, long way and the finish is not greasy or heavy. I've not worn this under makeup so I'm not sure how well it layers. Regardless, though, I think this is a fantastic eye cream for those looking for some lightweight hydration.

Ingredients: Water/Aqua/Eau, Glycerin, Dimethicone, Butylene Glycol, Pentaerythrityl Tetraethylhexanoate, Dipropylene Glycol, Methyl Trimethicone, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Phenyl Trimethicone, Pca Dimethicone, Caprylyl Methicone, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Niacinamide, Polysilicone-11, 1,2-Hexanediol, Polysorbate 20, Cetearyl Alcohol, Propanediol, Caffeine, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Polyacrylate-13, Glyceryl Stearate, C14-22 Alcohols, Dimethiconol, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/Vp Copolymer, Stearic Acid, Malpighia Emarginata (Acerola) Fruit Extract, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/Beheneth-25 Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Polyisobutene, Palmitic Acid, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Glyceryl Caprylate, Arachidyl Alcohol, C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside, Polyglyceryl-3 Methylglucose Distearate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Fragrance / Parfum, Sodium Hyaluronate, Behenyl Alcohol, Arachidyl Glucoside, Sorbitan Isostearate, Disodium Edta, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Beta-Glucan, Sodium Magnesium Silicate, Glucose, Myristic Acid, Lauric Acid, Glutathione, Tocopherol, Undaria Pinnatifida Extract.
