Summary:

A while ago, I told you about some new stuff that popular Korean skincare brand Laneige had for us and among them was something very interesting and unique – a mochi sleeping pack! Ok, so it’s not really a mochi, but it looked like one.

laneige white plus capsule sleeping pack Mochi! Mochi! The Laneige White Plus Renew Capsule Sleeping Pack is too adorable!

What it really was, was the White Plus Renew Capsule Sleeping Pack, a sleeping pack contained within individual one-use capsules. I thought they were terribly interesting (see how influential packaging can be?!) and I took to them like a duck to water.

The White Plus Renew Capsule Sleeping Pack comes in a box with 16 capsules within that are very well packaged and if I might say so, perfect for those who travel a lot, because you can use and toss as you go along. Within each capsule is a hydrating gel formula and within that gel formula lies a mochi-like ball of cream that contains the ingredients for whitening and brightening the skin. Laneige promises you therefore that you will wake up from your beauty sleep with brighter, more hydrated skin. Intriguing! icon biggrin Mochi! Mochi! The Laneige White Plus Renew Capsule Sleeping Pack is too adorable!

Here’s how the capsule packs look on the underside. They remind me of the packaging for disposable contact lenses!

See the “mochi” suspended within the clear gel? There are actually 2 different formulas within this product. The slightly thicker cream “mochi” and the lighter clear gel. So how do you use this?

Quite simple. Included in the box is a spatula with broad end and a narrow end.

  • Tear off the foil from the capsule.
  • Use the pointed end of the spatula to mix the cream with the gel. When properly mixed, it will take on a opaque white texture.
  • Use the wide end of the spatula to scoop out the product and apply to face and neck in a generous layer.

You can use this directly after cleansing in the evening, and go to sleep. I like to apply this after toner or sometimes, I apply a thin layer of hydration serum before this, or sometimes a thin layer of oil just for an additional boost.

Although the capsules look quite small as you’ll see below in comparison to my fingers, it actually holds an insane amount of product. Despite applying a thick layer of gel-cream to my face, there is usually more than enough to apply the product down your neck to your décolletage. I even have enough to apply a layer of product on both arms, before I run out. There is SO. MUCH. PRODUCT!

This is a sleeping pack, which means you go to sleep with it on. I find that it actually absorbs into skin and dries without a sticky feeling so it isn’t uncomfortable at all leaving it on. The next morning, and despite numerous uses, I cannot attest to brighter skin but I can attest to it being hydrating for skin and not drying. It is pretty comfortable.

What I do not quite like is the strong perfumed scent. It bugs me and it lingers so although I don’t mind the product, I cannot bring myself to like it because of the scent. It might have bugged me less if this was a wash off mask, but since it isn’t, I’m bugged. If the scent doesn’t disturb you then you’ll probably like this more than I did.

I think this is a nice gel mask to have on hand to perk up the skin now and again with minimum fuss. As I said, I cannot attest to brighter skin but it didn’t do me any harm and it is good to travel with so I can imagine me enjoying this in hotel rooms or air planes where the air is much drier and a boost of hydration would do skin some good icon smile Mochi! Mochi! The Laneige White Plus Renew Capsule Sleeping Pack is too adorable!

In a nutshell

The Laneige White Plus Renew Capsule Sleeping Pack is a pack of one-use sleeping masks targeted at hydrating the skin and brightening the skintone. There are 2 formula within one capsule which you have to mix to activate the mixture. Once opened and mixed, all the product should be used at one go, so be generous when applying on your face and neck. I find there’s even enough product for me to apply it over my arms! It isn’t sticky, but there is a strong perfumed scent I wasn’t comfortable with. The next morning sees my skin feeling and looking hydrated but I can’t attest to any immediate brightening or improvement of the skintone. At least nothing I noticed immediately. Still, it’s a fun product and one that’s very travel friendly and I can imagine very useful in hotel rooms and airplanes where the air tends to be very dry.

Pros: Portable, Easy to use, Leaves skin feeling hydrated, A lot of product

Cons: Strongly perfumed

Who will like this: Anyone who travels a lot and wants a travel friendly sleeping mask, Anyone who wants a handy sleeping mask that is easy to use and hygienically packaged

Here is the ingredient list for the White Plus Renew Capsule Sleeping Pack for your reference.

Have you tried this “mochi” mask? Do you use a sleeping mask or sleeping pack regularly?

I don’t use them very regularly as I do like my regular skincare routine. However, I do find that sleeping packs can be an easy and quick way to boost hydration in the skin and for lazy nights, or after a late night, a quick way to restore some hydration and cut short the nightly skincare routine. Just slap on after cleansing and go to sleep! Easy! icon biggrin Mochi! Mochi! The Laneige White Plus Renew Capsule Sleeping Pack is too adorable!

This sounds awesome! I agree with you on using this during travel, my skin tend to get drier, even though I just travel from Sarawak to Kuala Lumpur LOL If this product has lots to apply, do you think we can use half for today, half for next time? My face is quite small so whatever products I use tend to last longer compare to other people and whatever excess I have, I will end up apply around my neck, chest and hands, haha.

Will you also make follow-up blog on this product after several uses?

Oh yes, travel really messes up your skin. I could just do a road trip and still end up with messed up skin at the end of it LOL! I suppose if you were very careful to use a spatula and not contaminate the product, seal it up and store it in the fridge, you could use it 2 days in a row, but I wouldn’t recommend it simply because it’s like a disposable contact lens you know. Once you pop the blister pack, it’s exposed and there’s a risk of contamination. On the upside, you could give your neck, chest and arms a nice treat! :) I’ve been using this for about 2 months and almost finished with the box because I don’t use it very often. The pix were taken a while ago and my thoughts on it remain the same 2 months down the road :)

I’ve never really understood the concept of sleeping packs in general. How do they differ from a good, rich moisturizer? And don’t they get all over your pillow? You’re right about the packaging though. That is really cute!

Sleeping packs are generally found in Korean and Japanese skincare and operate as a mask that you can sleep in. They deliver more potent ingredients like a leave on mask, and usually contain hydrating benefits, but they aren’t as rich as a cream moisturiser which can clog pores if too much is used. Most sleeping packs have a gel texture which makes them more comfortable to use and absorb into skin better, so no, they don’t usually stay wet on the face and won’t mess up your pillow unless you sleep face down :)

The packaging is so cute!! You’re right, it does look like a contact lens packaging. Too bad about the scent though.. And for a pack of 16 at RM110, it comes down to about RM6 per mochi, which is okay. And its really super convenient for travelling, no more of that drying aeroplane air, gosh.

PS: Hows the Nanoblur testing going? LOL! :)

That’s what I thought too, that the price point was pretty decent because it could potentially last you longer than a product in a big tub. Plus if you use this on board a plane, you don’t have to scare your fellow passengers as you would with a sheet mask LOL! :D Haven’t gotten round to testing the Nanoblur yet – been too blur recently with work LOL :D

Haha talk about serendipity! :D The scent is much stronger than the sleeping mask though, Anne so I hope it won’t bug you! But the regular sleeping mask is pretty good stuff too!

I don’t know, seems gimmicky to me. Plus, why the alcohol?
But it could be great for travelling, that’s true.

LOL Absolutely gimmicky Julia! But I can’t deny the functionality for people on the go :) From what I can tell, a lot of Asian skincare brands aren’t alcohol free with Japanese brands being huge culprits. It’s also why I don’t use a lot of Asian skincare not because I’m sensitive to alcohol but because I don’t find them as moisturising for my skin which could be attributed to the alcohol. But there are also exceptions and these do work, but perhaps not for those who are sensitive to alcohol in skincare :)

I agree totally with you on this mask. I was taken aback by the scent when i first used it. Wish they would tone it down or make it scent-less?? However, i really like how my skin looks the day after. My skin would be well hydrated and bright. I usually use it neat after my deep cleansing clay mask. Maybe i should try putting their white plus serum before the mask to see if the effect would be better?

Whew! So I’m not the only one who found it far too perfumed! It would definitely be great if they could totally remove the scent. I didn’t notice immediate brightening, but my skin seems nice the next day :) Definitely try layering products and see if it works better. I like putting a thin layer of oil and it seems to make my skin look better too.

I have the water sleeping pack and I love it. The scent doesn’t bother me that much. I think it’s cause my body lotion I use is a lot stronger in scent than the face mask, so it doesn’t seem as bad to me.
I have been wanting to try this for a while. I don’t think it’s available in Canada unless I order it online. But I have so many face cream and sleep masks I have to use up… I think I’ll wait till I’m close to running out because I buy this.

Did you mean the one in the tub? That’s nice too and it works well doesn’t it? This one’s a lot more perfumed than the Water Sleeping Pack though so it’ll be one to note :)

Joann June 10, 2014 at 6:28 am

Yeah, the sleeping pack in the container. I love that stuff! I put it on right before bed, and my skin just feels amazing.
I will definitely make note of that! =)

I am SO glad you posted this!
Perfect timing gurl!
Been after these since you last posted about them and recently got a couple to sample before investing in the full 16 pack. Just spent the last couple of nights mesmerized by the cute mochi ball – kind of intimidated, too as I didn’t have a clue what to do with it. Voila! This happens. Muchas appreciatus.

Haha glad the review was of help! Did you like it? I like how my skin feels after using it but the scent is just far too strong for me especially when I have to keep it on all night!
