First: this is MOST effective over damp or wet skin, and followed by a more occlusive moisturizer, ointment, or balm (prob not necessary if you are super oily.) Applying this over dry skin and over-applying can lead to a very sticky finish and can potentially increase dehydration. Pea to dime-sized amount is plenty for the face.This is super hydrating on my problematic skin, and does not cause breakouts, redness, or irritation (YMMV of course). This doesn't flare my fungal acne. I apply this over wet skin on my face, neck, and upper body as soon as I'm done with a shower.This is the same formula as the American "Hada Labo Plumping Gel Cream," but has a different preservative system. This one contains parabens, which protect the formula from mold and bacteria very well and are typically well tolerated by the majority. FYI: this is a jar, and is cheaper per ounce than the American version. I think the packaging is well suited to the formula and is easy to open and close, and I am able to get to 100% of the product. Would re-buy and strongly recommend for all ages and skin types.

Absolutely love this as a moisturizing toner. I apply it on wet face and follow up with a more occlusive moisturizer. This has made a tremendous difference in my oily but dehydrated and sensitive skin. Highly recommended.

My skin: actually kind of normal right now, how strange. Generally I would say combination, though, leaning dry in the winter and slightly oily in the summer. Used to have mild to moderate acne for years and years, finally managed to mostly clear it up last year. Not a lot of skin concerns as long as the acne is under control; large pores, of course, but who doesn't have those, one or two very faint early wrinkles forming, but I'm 40, soon 41. That's pretty great, considering.I have a long history with urea. I went through what feels like hundreds of tubes of the Eucerin 5% Urea moisturizer, it was my favourite skincare product for 10 or 15 years. It was pretty much the only thing that would keep my face hydrated enough, especially in the winter, without aggravating the acne and feeling too heavy. I love that stuff, and my skin loves urea as an ingredient, but it disappeared from the shelves where I am a few years back. About a year ago I had a stress-related flare-up of acne, dehydration, irritation and general skin badness, and came across https://simpleskincarescience.com/ doing some research on how to deal with it. The Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium products were recommended as good hydrating products containing urea, so I ordered the lotion and the Gokujyun Premium perfect gel cream. Long story reasonably short: I love this so much, the lotion especially. My skin loves this so much. I am so happy to have a couple of great hydrating products with urea in my life again, and this winter I haven't really been struggling with dehydration or dryness at all. I'm just not dry or dehydrated, in February, in Sweden. It's bizarre. Would I recommend? Yes. Would I repurchase? I have.

Hada Labo does it again... this is a toner according to the Japanese meaning of the term, a light moisturiser to be used under heavier creams. It comes in a runnier and thinner "normal" formulation, and a slightly thicker and more viscous "moisturising" one - same as the basic line lotions. I use the moist type as I have combination skin and dry areas can get flaky. These Shirojyun premium products differ from the non premium ones in that they also have tranexamic acid in them, alongside vitamin c in the form of magnesium ascorbyl phosphate. I am using several other products to help fade pink marks from acne, including differin and niacinamide, and was using the Ordinary's magnesium ascorbyl phosphate cream before this. As this has the same stuff in, I've stopped using the Ordinary's one, and since switching to this the overall tone of my skin is a little more even and I get less angry, swollen spots before my period.As a final bonus, this comes in refill packs - shown on the right of the photo. Wish more brands did this, acting to reduce plastic waste. Overall it's a lovely product and I'm very happy I bought it!

This has become my number one oil cleanser. It is really cheap, contains no fragrance, has a texture that is not too thick, not too thin, so just perfect for mildly massaging into the skin, and it is really efficient at removing makeup. As a first step cleanser, this is perfection. I will continue to repurchase this as long as they make it because I love everything about it, from the price to the simplicity and efficiency of it.
