Home to the best hydrating products, Laneige is also well known in the K-beauty scene for being a pioneer and an innovator. Launched in 2019, the innovative Cream Skim Range has maintained its popularity and has become a staple in our routines, especially those with dry skin types. In this post, we'll be sharing all about this iconic range of products, as well as the technology behind it.

First of all, what's in a name? The term "Cream Skin" is actually a combination of two words: cream + skin. "Cream" refers to the moisturizing capabilities of this range, while "skin" actually refers to "toner". In Korea, toners are referred to as "skin". At its debut, only the Cream Skin Refiner was released, and this product's aim was to imbue the moisturizing powers of a "cream" in a "skin/toner" texture, giving those with dry skin types deem moisture without any heavy texture or feeling. It was a hit, and the range has since been expanded to include a mist, a skin pack, and an oil cleanser!
Laneige's Cream Skin Range is available in different formats
Made with a patented Cream Blending Technology, these products combine the benefits of both cream and skin/toners. With White Leaf Tea Water to reinforce the skin barrier, this line of products is filled with mild and safe ingredients for those with dry skin.
This range also utilizes Single Drop Extraction Technology, where the white leaf tea water we mentioned before is actually obtained from the single drop extraction method. The result? Higher amino acid content that gives the skin continuous moisturization!

We mentioned that users with dry skin love this, but does that mean that it's only for those with dry skin? Absolutely not! The beauty of this range and what makes it popular is the innovative light texture that provides comfortable moisture to the skin. While those with dry skin who experience flaky or chapped skin will enjoy this, those with oily skin who experience greasy skin or feel like their skin is tight but oily can also use this. The trick is in the application method!
For those with dry skin:
Apply two layers of Cream Skin, patting it in for maximum absorption. Dampen some cotton pads and use them as mini masks for more moisture, or simply use the Quick Skin Pack!
For those with oily skin:
Use a light layer of the Cream skin. As the finish isn't sticky, this range will be perfect in hydrating your skin and maintaining/controlling your skin's water to oil balance.
