Review: Laneige Water Bank Hydro Mist

Laneige revamped its Water Bank line about 2 months ago. The new Water Bank line features green mineral water extracted from vegetables that are said to be super hydrating and healthy for the skin. After all, if we need to consume more green, the same should go for our skin too, right?!

The new Water Bank line carries mainly two types of products, one is the Water Bank Hydro Essence and Mist, and the other one is the Water Bank Moisture Essence and Mist. They are meant for oily-to-combination and normal-to-dry skin respectively.

I ordered mine from Gmarket Korea when the products are first launched. I just couldn't wait for it to come to Malaysia! I opted for the Hydro Mist and Essence although I have normal skin. I think the Hydro version will work better for normal skin living in a hot country like Malaysia although it may not be hydrating enough for normal skin in Korea.

Anyhow, now lets go to our review of this Water Bank Hydro Mist that I have used for the past 2 months!

I am a big fan of Laneige Water Bank Mineral Skin Mist so I am kinda excited about having another mist in the Water Bank line.

This Hydro Mist features the new green mineral water technology with botanical extracts. It claims to moisturize and strengthen your skin barrier with the green mineral water. Its patented ocean blue processing method also provides non-drying and deep moisture for your skin.

One thing I love about this mist is the use of sexy green vegetables here like kale, garden cress, and beetroot. These are stuffs that are really good for our body so there is no reason not to believe that they will be beneficial for our skin too! Laneige uses to be selling "better water" technology, now it is moving towards "better water+vegetables", which is really intriguing!


Water / Aqua / Eau, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Sea Water / Maris Aqua / Eau De Mer, 1,2-Hexanediol, Methyl Gluceth-20, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Octyldodeceth-16, Ethylhexylglycerin, Saccharide Isomerate, Disodium Edta, Fragrance / Parfum, Chenopodium Quinoa Seed Extract, Magnesium Sulfate, Calcium Chloride, Phenoxyethanol, Beta Vulgaris (Beet) Root Extract / Extrait De Racine De Betterave, Manganese Sulfate, Citric Acid, Sodium Citrate, Zinc Sulfate, Lecithin, Brassica Oleracea Acephala Leaf Extract, Nasturtium Officinale Extract, Tocopherol, Lepidium Sativum Sprout Extract, Ascorbyl Glucoside


This mist is made of mainly mineral water and basic moisturizers and solvents seen in many other mists. This contains trace amount of minerals like quinoa, magnesium, calcium, manganese, zinc and so on. Zinc is normally added as astringent and oil-controlling agent so it will regulate your sebum production and reduce excessive sebum production on your skin. Finally, we have kale, watercress, garden cress and a small amount of vitamin C extract added here. Kale is a lovely antioxidant powerhouse that is seen in many recipes and even in my favourite toner kale-lalu-yAHA by Krave Beauty. It is packed with vitamin A, B, C and K and are able to promote collagen synthesis, increase cellular renewal and reduce free radicals damages. The same goes for watercress, another antioxidant that will make your skin healthier and younger looking. Garden cress and vitamin C are both helpful to brighten up your skin and give you that enviable water glow you love. In short, this is like a “mini” version of my old-darling the Water Bank Mineral Skin Mist but with vegetables added to it. The scent is different but the texture is highly similar.


I find the scent overwhelming when I first used it, which is nothing like my old love the Water Bank Mineral Skin Mist. However, it smells really refreshing as I am getting used to it. The Hydro Mist is really refreshing. It is nothing like the Water Science Mist. The Hydro Mist produces really refined mist that hydrates and relaxes your skin. My skin feels comfortable after using it. It may not be as moisturizing as the Mineral Skin Mist but I like how this hydrates my skin and makes it less likely to produce oil for hours after using. I also use it to “freshen up” my skin whenever my skin feels dry before bedtime, whenever I don’t feel like using a sleeping mask, and when I want my skin to be damp before I apply any skincare. It is a nice multitasker that has now become a staple in my skincare routine.


I don’t have much to say about a mist because after all, mist are mist, and there is only so much you can say about them. My favourite remains the Water Bank Mineral Skin Mist. I also love Whamisa Organic Flowers Olive Leaf Mist which can double up as moisturizing toner. I also love the scent of Whamisa a lot. But if I were to go for something lighter and refreshing, then this will be my go-to favourite. After all, who can say no to having more vegetables on your skin, eh?

- refreshing, hydrating texture
- fine mist

- the scent may be overwhelming at first
