LANEIGE introduced the ‘Water Sleeping Pack’ in 2002, addressing a new beauty routine for the first time, skincare during sleep. The product became an instant bestseller known for its ease of use – a simple application before going to sleep – as well as its moisturizing effect. Creating a new category it named ‘sleeping beauty,’ LANEIGE has continuously evolved the bestseller – the ‘Water Sleeping Pack Plus (2005)’ provided strengthened moisturizing effect, and the ‘Water Sleeping Pack EX (2009)’ added a brightening solution to the powerful hydration formula.

Additional research into modern lifestyles resulted in the upgraded ‘Water Sleeping Mask (2015),’ which added ‘Sleep Tox’ ingredient and applied moisture-wrapping technology to boost the hydration effect. In 2021, ‘Water Sleeping Mask EX,’ which combines the new Probiotics Complex[3]and Sleeping Microbiome™ was released. Today, LANEIGE ‘Water Sleeping Mask’ has won many awards[4] from beauty publications worldwide and has established itself as an essential K-beauty routine.
