Laniege product discontinued?

Hey! Has the Laniege water bank hydro essence been discontinued? Is the new blue bank hyaluronic the same formula? 


Re: Laniege product discontinued?

@budxo, it looks like the Laneige Water Bank Hydro Essence may be on its way to being phased out (despite it being a best seller for the brand). Sadly, it doesn't look like there's anything in the new collection (at least not in the current offerings) that has the same formula as the Hydro Essence. The Hydro Essence no longer appears on Laneige's US site, but you can still find it on the brand's international site, as well as some online third party retailers (i.e., iherb and stylevana). 


The new Laneige Water Bank Blue Hyaluronic collection has a few different products, depending on the market, but nothing that would be a dupe for the Hydro Essence.


US: there's no actual essence within the collection on the US site for the brand. There are 2 toners (one exfoliating and one hydrating+revitalizing) and a serum, but the ingredients list for each of those products are not the same as the Hydro Essence. 


International: Interestingly, on the brand's international site, there are two "essence toners" - one targeted for those with normal to dry skin and another geared towards those with combination to oily skin. The ingredients list for each of those essence toners are different than the formula for the Hydro Essence.

Hi @budxo . No, I think that the formula is not the same because a few days ago I read a couple of people complaining about it and they wanted to find a dupe for the old one.
