Laneige birthday creams

To celebrate its 20th anniversary, Laneige will be launching a limited-edition set of Water Bank Gel Cream Ex ($52 for seven 10ml tubes) designed by its ambassador and K-drama star Song Hye Gyo.

Instead of wearing a different perfume to suit your mood or occasion, the actress proposes that you slather on a scented cream.

Each 10ml tube of moisturising cream in the set has a different scent; pick from jasmine and bergamot to wine and Song's favourite, lavender. The colourful tubes are also handy for travel and midday touch-ups.
