[productsample] See, I really, really like the concept of this ‘double oil’. It’s not something I’ve seen before in this bi-phase format – a product that promises moisturiser and oil in the same bottle.

The brand suggests that it’s for skin that still feels a bit taut after applying moisturiser – for me this can happen in winter but not often because my complexion isn’t particularly dry.

You do need to shake it very well – it’s important that it’s thoroughly mixed before you apply. In texture, it’s much like a regular oil but lighter. Botanical oils (grapeseed, coconut, passiflora, macadamia) mix with with mineral water .. I’m working from the brand site which means translation isn’t necessarily the best but they explain it by saying it’s like using an ampoule and oil by pushing moisture into the skin and then sealing the surface of the skin to stop it leaving. I used it as a night treatment and as expected, woke with lovely soft skin that felt like it hadn’t lost a drop of moisture overnight. Laneige Double Layering Oil definitely feels a bit different to the usual oils or creams that I’ve used – I like it for that particularly but can’t complain at all at performance. It did what was expected and perhaps a bit more. It’s £31 from Kosame Beauty, a new K-Beauty site stocking Laneige, Innesfree and IOPE, some of the most popular K-Beauty brands. Find it HERE.
