ye.. i bought this because i also heard they sell a bottle in every 4 seconds, so i gotta try. this is not magic, it won't change your skin the next day. but i do realize that my skin got a lot softer and less sensitive. i use this with my estee lauder products and its been great. i will definitely buy again because my skin is very dry so this helps absorb water molecules.
I purchased this product from www.sasa.com for $11 170ml
This is what was described on Sasa's website for this item:
HadaLabo GOKUJYUN Super Hyaluronic Acid Lotion is infused with super hyaluronic acid which deeply penetrates into skin. It keeps on moisturizing and softening skin, meanwhile enhancing skinís water-binding ability, leaving skin supple, smooth and radiant. Weak acid, no fragrance, and no colorant.
I heard that this toner/lotion sells 1 bottle every 4 second. Well, of course, I had to try! To my surprise, I found that I really do like it and can understand why it sells like hotcakes! The texture is somewhat watery, but has a bit of a slip to it. I find that 2 small 'shakes' into the palm is sufficient for my entire face/neck/throat area. As instructed, I patted and pressed the solution onto cleansed skin. In about 10 seconds, the toner is completely absorbed. My combination skin feels wonderfully hydrated, but without the oil!! No scent detected. I would say it is safe for sensitive skin users, too. The redness in my face seemed to have subsided a bit! What's not to like? I LOVE this!
This is currently one of the best selling Japanese toners out there in the drugstore. Unlike most toners which is watery, Hada Labo's 'lotion'- a Japanese term used for toners basically, is a little thicker in texture. I was told to put about 3 drops across my entire face AFTER cleansing and gently tap until it is entirely absorbed. For me, I put more than 3 drops.....5-6 drops is still very well tolerated by my skin.
This lotion's active ingredient is the Hyaluronic Acid, a moisturising ingredient that claims to retain moisture on the skin. HL's motto is basically "Simplicity"- it claims to only include the necessary ingredients into its products, with no additional additives like fragrance or alcohol.
Upon application, my skin feels more plump and has that 'toink-toink' feeling. My skin instantly feels more hydrated and NOT oily. It really makes make-up glides more easily on a hydrated skin. I would really recommend it to people out there whom are looking for hydrating skincare. For the price, it's totally inexpensive, and I believe that one full size bottle can last > 6 mths.
TIP: I also use this toner as a mask. I do so by saturating cotton pads with WATER first, then pour a dime size of the lotion onto it and leave it on my skin for 5-10 minutes (avoiding the eye area ofcourse). I have been doing this almost every night for the past 2 weeks, and my skin has never looked better ! Really an inexpensive and effective way to maintain skin's moisture and hydration. The reasons why I saturate my cotton pad with water is to make the mask less 'rich'. Imagine saturating it with purely HL's lotion and use it every night..... i'm afraid this would be too much for the skin to absorb.
