If you ask me, the epitome of beauty goals begins with K-beauty. From innovative formulas and game-changing application techniques to plush and dewy glass-like skin results, its no wonder why Korean-inspired skincare trends continue to dominate and heavily influence the worldwide beauty industry — and, of course, the top shelf of my bathroom cabinet.
Along with the dozens of packs of pimple patches, hydrating essences and toners, gel-like serums and ampoules, my weekly K-beauty lineup consist of masks. We’re talking sheet masks, eye gel patches, peel-off, exfoliating, creams, and basically whatever else that can give me clear, bright and lifted complexion. And after countless trials and tribulations, I’ve learned that nothing does more for my skin than a rich sleeping mask.
A go-to formula for myself and thousands of beauty lovers everywhere is the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask. As my ultimate solution to seasonally scaly skin and eczema flare-ups around my lips during the colder months, this leave-on mask soothes and moisturizes for smoother, more lips overnight.
SHOP IT: Sephora, $26
This Korean-inspired mask is designed to recharge lacklustre and overly-stressed skin overnight by acting as an additional protective barrier to penetrate and lock in moisture and hydration so you wake up with soft, glowing skin. The same applies to my other favourite type of mask: lip sleeping masks, an absolute must-have and a lifesaver for those who have extremely dry, chapped lips.

Backed up by more than 500,000 “loves” and more than 11,000 reviews on Sephora’s website, this cult-favourite lip mask is formulated for quick absorbency and is enriched with vitamin C, hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture while active ingredients in the K-beauty brand’s signature Berry Mix Complex that indulges the senses. With regular use, it helps reduce flakiness and offers a more supple touch to the lips.
But just like a face sleeping mask, I find that the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask works best with other products. I like to end off my nighttime skincare routine with a nourishing lip balm or serum and sealing in the moisture with a lip mask. Best of all, the Lip Sleeping Mask has a softening balm texture that goes a long way and that is sure to last beyond winter.
“Oh man, this stuff is pure gold. I LOVE this lip mask. It’s seriously so worth the cost and it lasts forever. I have very sensitive skin. Other lip masks have caused bad reactions or done nothing. I put this on at night and wake up with the softest, most supple lips. I love matte lipstick but always have a problem with it cracking on my lips. I put a tiny bit of this on first and it helps so much,” said one reviewer. “I will never stop using this. It comes in several flavours but the berry one is my favourite.”
“This Is the best lip mask for hydration! I use this every night before bed and its made my lips the [softest] they've ever been even after just one use! This will give you the ultimate hydration and it smells amazing. Highly recommend!” added another.
The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask retails for just $26 and is available in six yummy flavours.
