Now, beauty product consumers in India get an opportunity to leverage the best of water therapy in their body care routine. Nykaa, a major player in the online beauty product space, has launched in India the Korean beauty product brand, Laneige. The Korean brand is known for its focus on maximizing the potential of water in beauty care products.

Laneige claims to offer the right solution to each skin concern with carefully selected, optimum natural ingredients, which are complemented with the scientific use of water. The brand has been showing ideal results with its simple yet inventive skincare and makeup offerings, according to a press release issued by Nykaa.

Laneige’s popular products like Lip and Eye Sleeping Mask, Water Sleeping Mask, White Dew Ampoule Essence, Water Bank Hydro Essence, are now available for women in India exclusively on the Nykaa.com website, and at select Nykaa Luxe stores in, Ahmedabad, Indore, Hyderabad, Bangalore, and Delhi.

Optimizing the utilities of water

Backed by its over two decades of research, Laneige through its unique concept, named Water Science, has optimized the utilities of water to address a number of skin concerns, such as anti-aging, hydration, complexion-correcting, and pore refining, just to name a few. One of its signature products, Hydro Ionized Mineral Water, offers faster and deeper absorption for enhanced complete miniaturization, for those with parched skin.

Another key product of Laneige, named Mint Water, helps in decreasing disproportionate oil and sebum, while offering superior pore care. But probably the best way to try out the brand is to go for its Sleeping Mask Combo. This comes with three different masks that work overnight; the first that hydrates your under-eye area, the second that plump your lips, and the third that ensures smooth skin. This gels with a proven fact that there’s nothing better than skincare that works when you sleep, states the press release
