My skin: 41, normal/combo/dry, prone to acne and dehydration.
I like this! I got this entirely because my package with refills of the Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium lotion got lost and took over a month longer to get here, so I ran out of my usual hyaluronic acid lotion and had to get something similar that is available on shelves here in Sweden.
This seemed like the closest thing, and it's a very similar product, in many ways: sort of like a very light, watery hydrating serum, or like a quite substantial hydrating toner. I use it that way, as a hydration boost right after I wash my face, morning and evening, and it works very well as a first step, I find. Has the same slightly sticky feeling on the skin as most hyaluronic acid serums, in my experience, it hydrates well and plays nicely with my skin.
It's not a moisturizer, I definitely need to add something heavier over to lock the hydration in. But I really enjoy this type of product - that serum/toner hybrid that you can layer when needed - and this is a nice one. I like the fact that it's gentle and not fragranced, and I also like the fact that it's in a larger 50 ml bottle, not some tiny serum bottle, which also hints that it's meant to be more of a toner/lotion type product, I think.
I find it expensive for what it is, though, and it lacks what I think of as the star ingredient of the Hada Labo lotion, urea. This will not replace the Hada Labo lotion for me, but I will happily use it up, and I'm glad to know that there's a European option, in case of shipping emergencies. I may repurchase.
