Applying it right before sleep time, the best state for the skin transmission according to the skin circadian rhythm, maximizes the efficiency of overnight water supply.

 

The function of skin remarkably declines in the night time. Enriched with Beta-glucan, Water Sleeping Pack_EX deeply hydrates fatigue and dry skin while Ceramide SLN formula strengthens the skin barrier.

Packaging

Laneige’s packaging is much better than O’slee HANDS DOWN without any competition.

 

 

Laneige’s packaging is always very simple and classy. It is a bit tad too heavy, and might be inconvenient to bring around. However, the packaging is very sturdy and attractive. It comes with a scoop too! If you have the Laneige Multiberry Yogurt Mask, the packaging is exactly the same!

 

 

The O’slee packaging is very cheap and comes in a cheap looking plastic jar with a cheap looking design. However, it is much lighter in weight, and will be more convenient to carry around. Does not come with a scoop. What bugs me about their packaging is that there is no indication of where the product is made, it’s origins and it’s full original ingredient list. This is definitely a no-no for any cosmetic product in the 21st century. It really gives off a cheap vibe, and looks as if the manufacturer is hiding some nasty stuff from it’s ingredient list, which is why a complete list isn’t printed. It doesn’t even print where the product is made… so i’m guessing this must be one of those cheap china factory produced brand? O’slee definitely needs to consider to change this if their ever thinking of upgrading the product. There’s nothing wrong in being a Chinese brand!

 

 

Texture

As you can see from above, both are gel formulation but the Laneige has a thicker, more emollient texture while the O’slee has a light transparent runny gel texture which reminds me of hair gel !

 

The Laneige has a milky light blue texture while the O’slee has a transparent aquamarine sort of colour.

I tested this on a piece of paper where i applied a layer of both masks. The O’slee applied paper had a wet appearance and you can see the water penetrating the paper while the Laneige mask doesn’t do that !

 

 

With that said, because of it’s watery gel texture, the O’slee has a more refreshing feeling on the skin because of its watery gel texture compared to the Laneige which is more emollient like a thick serum.

 

 

In terms of stickiness, they both have an initial ‘stickiness’ but that disappears after 10 minutes. To make the stickiness disappear faster, massage the masks into your skin, and use your fingers to ‘tap’ your skin as if playing a piano. It usually works, but if the stickiness does bother you, just apply a very thin layer of any cream on top of your sleeping mask !

 

 

 

Hydration

Laneige outperformed O’slee in terms of hydration – but that was expected ! It is more hydrating and emollient than the O’slee one without a doubt !

 

 

 

Oil Test

They both did exceptionally well in the oil test – showing almost no oil content at all !

 

 

 

Ingredient List

 

 

  • O’slee Clear Spa Sleeping Mask

 

Aqua, Rosehip extract, Allantoin, 1,3–Butanediol, Glycerin, Lubrajel LG, Proteasyl, VB5 Vitamin E, C-940 Licorice extract, Humecto Am-20, Triethanolamine, Germall plus, Perfume

 

 

I don’t think this is a complete ingredient list because there aren’t any preservatives in the list ! Anyhow, even if it’s incomplete, the Laneige ingredient list is faarrrr better than the O’slee ingredient list !

 

 

  • Laneige Water Sleeping Pack EX

 

 

A very impressive list eh?

Both products are extremely similar no doubt – but the Laneige Sleeping Mask is THE original sleeping pack. It is Laneige’s star product and best seller – with one product sold every 30 seconds! The success of this product caused other brands to try emulate the success by pushing out their own sleeping packs. Now almost every Asian brand has a ‘sleeping pack’ especially the Taiwanese brands such as Isqueen, Naruko, O’slee etc.

 

 

Both are hydrating products and they both perform well. However, results are more apparent with Laneige and you can just tell that O’slee is the lower quality, watered down version of Laneige. But for it’s price, O’slee does a good job, so no complains there! You can see a difference on your face once you wake up, so to enjoy the effects of the mask, just wash your face with warm water the next morning, and don’t use a cleansing foam. Not to mention, the Laneige mask is also loaded with anti-oxidants and beneficial ingredients for your skin. You’ll definitely see some results the next day with both – soft, smooth, hydrated skin – but results are better with Laneige.

 

 

Scent wise – you can smell the Rosehip scent of O’slee and the Lavender and Ylang Ylang on Laneige’s mask! The Laneige scent is quite strong but it is rather relaxing and i enjoy it. Laneige even goes further and patents the scent – now it’s called Sleepscent™.

 

 

 

Another tip : Put this in your fridge prior to using it. It gives a very cooling and relaxing effect. You can also use this on sunburns. It will help cool down your skin, hydrate it while repairing it !

 

Both products are sleeping packs which hydrates your skin and repairs it while you sleep. But which to pick ?

 

 

If you’re looking for a cheap, refreshing, value for money sleeping pack : O’slee

 

 

If you’re looking for a high quality, hydrating and emollient sleeping pack : Laneige
