I’ve been using Neosporin’s Overnight Renewal Lip Therapy for over 6 months now. It works almost over night, or at least within a couple to a few nights depending on how chapped my lips are. But lately, something has been making my lips very dry overnight. I live in Florida, so it could be the heat plus the dryness of the A/C. But, either way, Neosporin just wasn’t working out anymore. That’s why I decided to order the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask and to see how it worked. This is my first time using a Laneige product, so I ordered this online, and Target sells several other Laniege products online or in-store.

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask ($18 at Amazon)
What is it?
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is part of the Laneige Sleeping Beauty Care Line. The Laniege product line focuses on delivering moisture to skin, from different compositions for deep or water-based moisturizing (the site says they’ve mastered the “science of water”).
What does it do?
This mask is supposed to repair your skin overnight. The package says this is….
An innovative Lip Care Mask that creates an all day smooth, firm lips by softly melting dead skin cells on the lips while you sleep and relieves troubles that could not be solved by moisturizing lip balm alone.
Eventually. It took 5 days of consistent use for me to see any results. Don’t expect to wake up and have your lips velvety soft overnight. I put on a thick amount as the directions suggest the first night. My lips were improved, but definitely not completely healed the next morning. They felt softer and there was less dry skin, but it was still there.
The second night, I used a thinner layer and it didn’t seem to have as much of an effect, so I wasn’t sure it worked. Then, I tried a thicker amount again the third night, and it seemed to improve again.
By the 5th day, my lips were completely smooth and the dry skin went away.
So yes, with prolonged use (as with most things), Laneige Sleeping Lip Mask did work to smooth the dry skin on my lips. After skipping a few days, I attempted another run through, this time was identical: if I skipped a day, any progress I made completely stalled.
That being said, I won’t throw away my Neosporin overnight lip therapy anytime soon, but I will keep this of course and continue to use it, simply because I paid so much for it. I’d like to see how it does longer-term as well.
How do you use it?
The little pot comes with a wand you use to scoop the mask on to and spread on your lips. Put on a thick layer so that the mask penetrates your dry skin and moisturizes it fully. Try not to sleep on your face… because it is sticky and leaves a greasy mark on sheets. The scent/flavor is some kind of strawberry scent, so it smells pleasant. It tastes pleasant too, but obviously you shouldn’t be licking this $25 product off after applying it 😉 but if you do… it ain’t bad. The next morning, simply wipe off the excess, be impressed by your smooth lips (if you’ve been consistent), and continue your normal beauty routine.
