I love this product. it is amazingly moisturising. after i splashed some on my hands, i could almost see the skin plumping up immediately. It feels great patting this lotion on my skin after cleansing. because it is so cheap for such a big bottle, i use it on my arms and legs at night, as a very light but effectively moisturiser. i am definitely a fan!
This is such a gimmicky product, what with the super hyaluronic acid and stuff, which is supposed to be so moisturising. In truth, this is probably only suitable for oily skins if at all. It has a bit of slip going on, but on my normal-to-dry skin, it does not feel like I've applied anything at all after a minute. I would say to go with a decent moisturiser and forget this. It doesn't seem to do anything.
Actually I mean to review the moisturizing milk (but couldn't find a separate place to review it). This product is REALLY moisturizing so not for you if you have oily skin ( I started to get some bumps in my oily t-zone). But if you have dry skin I really recommend it. After seeing a derm for many years I think I finally found the solution to keeping my dry skin moisturized! HG and dirt cheap too !
It's hydrating and it made the texture of my skin much smoother. I will repurchase forever haha.
No breakouts, and my skin is less oily. I LOVE THIS STUFF
I'm changing my review from '2' to '5'. It wasn't this lotion that broke me out. After I stopped, I went back and continued using for a few more weeks. My skin just started to evolve. It has never felt this soft and smooth. The hydration level has increased so much I don't even recognize my own skin in the mirror. I think it's officially holy grail for me now. Best thing that ever touched my skin.
Curiosity drove me to this purchase. On my dry skin, this does very little. Let's look at it, I cannot remember exactly how much I paid for it, probably around $10-12, hyaluronic acid is not cheap. This product is 170 ml. Do you honestly think it has 30 % of the active ingredient, no, I believe the most is 5%, the rest is just filler. The instruction of how to put it on is just gimmick, on my dry & thirsty skin, it absorbed no matter how I applied it, as long as it made contact with the skin, it goes in after 2-3 minutes. It does provide some temporary smoothness & comfort for around 20 minutes, but if I don't put on my usual moisturizer, the skin will returned to its usual state of dryness.
For young skin (normal/oily) living in warm climate, this product may be sufficient, but as for me, this is not even supplimentary; there is no harm in using it, but can be truly omitted.
I'm surprised there aren't more reviews of this! One bottle is sold every 4 seconds in Japan.
Note - in Japan this is called "lotion",which is equivalent to toner.
It is fragrance free, mineral oil free, colorant free and alcohol free.
I have sensitive skin that can't tolerate many ingredients including mineral oil and alcohol, but I have no negative reactions from this.
The product comes in a 170ml bottle and looks and feels like water. The nozzle is designed so that one drop will spill out at a time - and you only need two drops for your whole face.
Used morning and night, this will last forever!
There is a particular way to apply it - you are meant to pat it into your skin with your palms until your skin feels smooth (ie not sticky). There are videos online of this if you need a demonstration :P
Then put your own moisturiser or serum on top. The lotion acts as a barrier to prevent any moisture loss, and locks in whatever you put on top.
I have combination sensitive skin, prone to clogged pores and breakouts but nothing major. While this product has no effect on treating pimples, it does not aggravate them either. I have not been using my usual azelaic acid products for the past few weeks, and I have notice that having more hydrated skin has made my face a lot clearer, because it is more balanced.
I can't see this product causing irritation to anyone, unless they are unable to use hyaluronic acid.
Hada Labo has brought the range out in other Asian countries besides Japan- the malaysian website is in english if you are curious about the brand/products.
I don't have ingredients with me, but they are available online.
This bottle costs RM40.90, 170ml. Since I have a small face, I only need 2 drops each time. I was expecting it to be very sticky and took quite awhile to absorb but it didnít.
In fact, you donít have to pat so hard like what the girl did(you can check out the video in my blog - http://sweetsurrender.99.com.my/?p=8237) *LOL* It absorbed quite quickly for me, could be due to the dehydration of my skin. I have dry skin. Everywhere I go, any beautician will surely ďattackĒ me with my dry skin problem *LOL* Thatís why when I found out about the availability of this product in Malaysia, I was so eager to get hold of it. I usually donít spend more than RM30 on skincare product but for this Iím willing because I only use a little every time which means it will last me quite long.
Iíve been using it for half month already(day and night), my sis was sharing it with me when sheís back. The bottle is still quite full. Really no smell at all not even a little chemical smell that you will usually get from fragrance free products.
I used it after cleansing, itís basically a toner. In Japan, lotion refers to toner, milk refers to moisturizer. My moisturizer absorb fully and left my skin smooth to touch instead of feeling a layer of stickiness or greasiness that I usually felt after moisturizing. My t-zone is less oily too. There isnít any breakout too.
You can read more on how I used this product in my blog.
This is one of the best hydrating toner I've tried. It may seem sticky upon initial application but after it's fully absorb, it leaves the skin very soft and smooth. Helps to enhance the absorption of the the moisturiser and serums used after the toner. The lotion by itself is pretty hydrating but there's still a need to use moisturiser or serum after that. One of the best products of Hada Labo! :)
One bottle is sold every 4 seconds!
The product is thick, but after patting it into your skin your skin will instantly be refreshed and moisturized.
This is a great product for those with sensitive/trouble skin since the formula is formulated without mineral, parabens or other irritating ingredients.
