Laneige Power Essential Skin Refiner Review

Today's post is a guest post by my friend, T!

Laneige Power Essential Skin Refiner

Comes in 3 formulas: Sensitive, Light (Combination-Oily), and Moisture (Dry-Normal).
This review is for Laneige Power Essential Skin Refiner in Light.

Description: Refreshing skin refiner with purifying and softening effect for clear skin.
Size: 200ml

Product Benefits:
- Eliminates impurities in the pores, and removes keratin for clear and transparent skin.
- Bio Dusali, extracted from fermented seaweed with strong energy of life, supplies energy to the skin and promotes keratin turnover, while the Hyacinth extracts purify the skin from heavy metal, smog, and other harmful materials to leave the skin moist and transparent.
- Niacinamide helps for brightened skin tone with keratin care. Cotton extracts prevents skin damage to refine oily and dull skin for clear and healthy skin

1. Dispense appropriate amount onto a cotton pad after cleansing every morning and evening.
2. Gently apply as lightly wiping out from inside to outside

My Thoughts:
- Fragrant scent
- I love how it leaves my skin feeling refreshed and moisturized!
- No noticeable diminishing of pores
- Beautiful and very sturdy packaging (plastic, not glass). Nozzle keeps product from spilling too much if you accidentally drop it.
- Does not irritate my combination/sensitive skin!
- Would repurchase again :)

Where to Purchase: $38.00 $22.60


  1. I have combination/acne-prone skin and I keep trying to figure out if this product has alcohol in it as I don't have Laneige closely available to me. Does it?! =P

    [thanks so much for the guide, as well--very helpful!]

  2. Hi Ruby!

    I don't have the ingredient list with me at the moment but according to CosDNA (don't know how reputable this site is though), this product does have alcohol in it. Here is the link:

    I noticed that for some of the other refiners in Laneige's skin care line that do not have alcohol in them, they will specifically state "alcohol-free" in their description. Since this product description does not include that phrase, I'd guess that it does have alcohol in it but that's only a guess. I'll have to ask my friend, T, who wrote the review about whether or not there is actually alcohol in it and I'll get back to you if anything. :)

  3. can it be use on breakout skin? n can it help to reduce the redness all over my face? help. thanks


Constructive criticism is deeply appreciated. ♥
