Yay for skincare! I have always been a huge fan of Laneige makeup and skincare products, when i saw this newly launched 2 in 1 serum and oil, i had to get my hands on it.

I have been using Hanyul’s Ja cho glow moist oil for about 6 months now, and i felt like i should try something new and revolutionary 😉

I got mine on Jolse. It’s currently USD28, pretty affordable considering a little goes a long way.

Let’s get onto the review!

“The double layering oil has two layers: hydro layer and oil layer.

Small hydro drops will be formed when the product is shaken, and moisture will be immediately absorbed into the skin.

There are Natural Ion Minerals extracted from the super food quinoa, which penetrates deep within the skin and restores the atrophied lubricating genes of dry skin.”


Shake well for more than 10 times.

After applying toner, essence and lotion, dispense 4 to 5 drops onto your palm.

Warm the oil by rubbing both palms, and evenly massage the oil into your skin.

Press your skin with both palms for the product to be absorbed.

Ingredients list

I have been using this oil for about 3 weeks now.. and omg… I am in LOVE!!!!!! (I only use it at night in my evening skincare routine)

This does not leave a layer of oil/film on your face. I have tried several oils (Argan, Rosehip) that left a mask of oil on my skin and i hated that feeling. My skin absorbs this really fast and i’ve noticed a significant improvement on my pimple scarring. My dark spots have been reduced slightly around my chin area.

I did not change my skincare routine. Currently i’m using:

  • Cleansers: Banila Co. Sensitive Clean it zero & COSRX Salicylic Acid Foam Cleanser, used with Clarisonic
  • Toner: COSRX One Step Pimple Clear Pads
  • Essence: COSRX Snail Mucin 96 
  • Oil: Laneige Double Layering Oil
  • Eye cream: Laneige Waterbank Eye Cream


I have gotten lesser breakouts on my T-zone, it might be the natural derived oils from this product? I realized that i do not need to layer skincare on as this provides enough hydration for me till the next morning.

My skin has gotten smoother and softer than what it used to be, i’m so amazed :O Hopefully my skin will turn out like Jun Ji Hyun’s in the future.. hehehe

It does contain alcohol but it did not break me out at all (i guess it’s a tiny percentage, considering i’m sensitive to alcohol). Has a floral scent – the typical Laneige one, not sure how to describe the smell.. Like fresh flowers with a hint of perfume? Haha 😛

Overall i highly recommend this double layering oil, for all skin types. If you’re really allergic to fragrances or any ingredients listed, i would not risk trying it. Nonetheless, it’s one of the best facial oils i’ve tried, even better than the Hanyul Ja Cho moist oil i’ve been using!

A reminder that i’m living in a cold climate right now, oh Canada. My skin is currently quite dry due to winter. I might try it in summer and give an update to see how it performs in humid weather.

A little goes a really long way for this product, it might last me about 6 months. I think it’s very affordable considering the price (USD28).

  1. Hi there, thanks for the nice review. I am currently living in Vietnam, so it is hot and humid all the time as Vietnam is a tropical country. I am using Laneige products for most of my skin care step. During the past 3 weeks, I have been using Double Layering Oil too. By the way my skin is acne-prone and oily, but easily dehydrated. This product surprisingly keeps my skin hydrated and soft while helping it no longer oily. My acne scars are fading away faster too.
