Sometimes I take for granted that I live right by the water, but it’s when I’m pulled out of my element (while traveling) I realize how big of a role water plays in my life.  As much as I love what I do, it gets quite exhausting. I find that when you are passionate about something you give it your all, and  although it’s incredibly rewarding,  It’s also entirely exhausting. When traveling, I spend most of my time in New York City, and when I’m not I spend my days in downtown L.A.   And although I live right by the beach, It’s hard for me to find the time to step away from the madness to simply breathe. But as of lately the hubs and I have been spending the better part of our weekend mornings by the water, and I’m not sure why we didn’t do this before! It’s a time for us to unleash all the chaos, and bring peace back into our lives. Water is not only essential for the emotional soul, but is also a necessity for the skin and body.


My obsession with skin care developed when I was in grade school living in Korea, year 1993 to be exact. I discovered a number of different beauty products, but one line that I have a long lasting history with is a korean brand called Laneige. You can only imagine my excitement when they recently reached out in regards to partnering up with them for their U.S launch that is exclusive to Target.



“Be Waterful” is Laneige’s brand motto, and I love that their core focus is all about beautiful, healthy, and hydrated skin! With all the traveling, stress, and pollution (especially in L.A.)  it can get quite difficult to maintain the healthiest skin. So as Laneige’s brand ambassador I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite products along with some skincare tips of mine to achieve beautiful and “waterful” skin.


Here are 5 things I currently do to maintain healthy & dewy skin:

1. STAY HYDRATED – I drink about  6-8 cups of water a day. 

2. SWEAT- I love going to Hot Yoga at least once a week to sweat out all the toxins from my body. If I don’t have enough time for Hot Yoga, I’ll at least go to the sauna for 30 minutes.

3. SLEEP- While sleeping I’ve been using Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask about 2 times a week.   It provides me with intensive hydration all while i’m restoring my body in bed…talk about multi tasking! The next morning I immediately wake up with incredibly dewy, glowy, & hydrated skin!

4. MOISTURIZE- Laneige’s Water Bank serum, Moisturizing Cream, and Gel Cream has seriously  saved my skin after weeks of traveling! It contains an exclusive water science technology that keeps the skin both externally and internally hydrated.

5. SUNBLOCK- I know you all have heard this many times, but I cannot emphasize enough the importance of wearing sunblock. Laneige’s Triple Sunscreen SPF 40 is my absolute favorite as it is enriched with soybean protein extracts. Which not only protects but also brightens and corrects the skin for an instant shimmery dewy look.

 I hope that these tips have helped you out in staying “Waterful”, and let me know if you guys have any secret skincare tips…I would love to know!

Gorgeous photos! I’ve used Laneige since I was in college and love it’s light hydrating formulas-they never clog my pores and they smell great. Great to hear about their collaboration with Target.

Esther ( March 24, 2014 at 11:18 PM )

    Hi Estehr! i’m so glad you are a fellow Laneige fan. I’ve been using Laneige on and off since the 90s, and every time I go back to their products my skin seems extra dewy. I have oily skin and I have to agree that I love it for that exact same reason – it doesn’t clog my pores! I was quite excited too when I heard they are collabing with target! I’m having a live chat with Laneige & Target today on twitter. Hope you can join us :) Lots of love to you xoxo Chriselle

Been looking for a good skincare routine. In Australia, we don’t have Laneige. Off to I go!!

JVo ( March 19, 2014 at 3:10 PM )

    Thanks so much I hope you are able to try it out!

    Chriselle ( March 19, 2014 at 3:50 PM )

Thanks for the skincare tips! Laniege picked the right ambassador for their US line–your skin is amazing. And congrats! It must be so flattering and awesome to be chosen! I usually buy Laniege at the make-up counter at the Korean/Asian food market but now I can just go to Target! Most likely it will be more economical there…

Jules ( March 19, 2014 at 3:10 PM )

    Yes it was amazing to have been chosen because I really enjoy their products. xoxo I hope you like it as much as I do !

Wow theyre launching a line at Target? That’s crazy. Ive been using their brand for a long time actually and love their water bank essence mask. It’s amazing!

Btw, you look beautiful in these photos Chriselle. Very natural yet chic as always.


Maggie S. Chan ( March 19, 2014 at 2:26 PM )

Beautiful photos, and it must be awesome to live close to the beach! That is my future dream, someday in the far, far away future of course :) I love Laneige’s water sleeping pack & water bank products, the smell, texture & moisture are uncomparable! Did not know that they carry sunscreen, will keep that in mind for the future. Congrats on being their brand ambassador!

Christy Li ( March 19, 2014 at 12:11 PM )

The Finders Keepers dress is amazing, love the mesh detailing and perfect combo with a natural post ;)

Are these purely of organic origin. I have a hunch if friends suffering breast cancer and they all blame it on skincare absorption. I hope they don’t have harmful chemicals in their new line

nala ( March 14, 2014 at 8:32 AM )

Every single photo is stunning. The pale blue sky and water contrast so well with your dress. And this dress!!! Amazing. It’s perfection.



Eye Like Fashion ( March 14, 2014 at 8:24 AM )

Yes! I love Laneige as well! And you are right the Water sleeping Pack is so amazing. I swear whenever I wear it and wake up in the morning my skin feels so plump and hydrated. I can’t believe they are launching in the US at Target. Lucky! When will they reach us Canadians?

Souda ( March 14, 2014 at 7:42 AM )

woow! They are at target?? I might have to go tonight!
Thank you!

Alina Ermilova ( March 14, 2014 at 6:19 AM )

Do you know if it’s any good for ultra-sensitive skin? I would love to give it a try! Also, just editorially speaking these are the most beautiful beach shots I have seen. I’m usually not a fan of the beach photo-shoots, but your dress with the wrap truly makes it whimsical! AND PS I saw photos of you on some of those fashion week street style round ups and totally told my friends “yeah, Chriselle replies to my comments… we’re basically friends” :) x

Supal {chevrons and éclairs} ( March 14, 2014 at 6:16 AM )

Korean brands have the best skin care (and make-up) products. This is the first time I have heard of this brand, but the packaging looks inviting (water is also my element; I may not live next to the sea but I drink 3 liters a day – minimum!). Sadly, being on a student’s budget, the price is a bit high for me. But I’ll keep this brand in mind for the future. ^^ You look absolutely stunning, by the way!

Dilek ( March 14, 2014 at 6:05 AM )

That is a very lovely dress and very beautiful pictures!

I loved the laneige bb cushion pact! I noticed on the target website it’s being sold in shades light, medium, dark. Do you know if those are equivalent to the asian shades, 21 light beige, 23 sand beige and 31 brown beige? Or are these totally different? I normally wear the sand beige in the asian version.

Victoria @ taketimeaway ( March 14, 2014 at 5:48 AM )
