I was introduced to laneige after seeing some online craze about its water bank series. furthermore, the prices are much cheaper than the original products i was using and thus i switched my stuff to laneige.
i used it for several weeks when one of my friend who worked as a pharmacist saw my products and told me that the ingredients used are very harmful to skin. some of them includes artificial colouring, fragrance, preservatives and alcohol, and it seems like they have used it in large amount in the products. i did some further research online and was quite traumatized by the information i gathered. some ingredients are also used in some car engines?
i immediately called my friend whom i heard was a fan of laneige and was hoping to get some reassurance from her that i was just being too paranoid.
however, she told me that she had an outbreak months back and got some acne products from laneige. and it made the situation worse and she has since stopped using products from the brand. she told me her skin doctor said the initial outbreak could be due to harmful ingredients with her skincare products, causing underlying problems which can only happen after long usage of the products. and she mentioned that her doctor 'hinted' that it could also be due to laneige that causes her situation to get worse after looking through the ingredients.
till now her outbreak has not been cleared and she has been thousands of dollars trying to save her face by seeing some popular skin doctors.
i refuse to take the risk and threw away all my items from laneige. i may be saving money for the time being but who knows i may be like my friend spending much more to solve the skin problems aggrevated.
i know there are still fans of the brand around but im just sharing my opinions
