Shocked this hasn’t been reviewed on here before! I found this little gem while researching
Hadalabo Gokujun Hyaluronic Lotion Moist. I decided to go with this one instead of Hadalabo because it was more economical for 500ml, just $14. I was looking for a very moisturizing skin plumping type lotion that would keep moisture from escaping my skin. In the past I’ve used Stratera Liquid Gold …

I’m always weary of dropper applicatiors because of contamination possibilities. Besides that, the product itself is a mild chemical exfoliant that does what it is supposed to do.Follow the directions though, more than 10 minutes will turn mild into harsh rather quickly. Overall, it does deliver smooth skin and is enough to help keep away the dreaded retin a flakies. Moisturizing well afterwards …Read more

This review is for both the S and C. My initial impression? Is this my hair? If it’s not then I’m not giving it back because it feels amazing! I didn’t recognize it the first few times I used these. It truly doesn’t feel like my hair.
My hair: 2a/2b , recently BKT treated, fine but very course, extremely frizzy in humid weather, and is pretty dry at the ends. It loves cones, and does well …

Do you want supple, “bouncy” skin that actually glows and holds moisture? This will do that and more, truly this stuff is MAGIC. I walked into Ulta for something completely different and left with this, so glad I did. I have been using just some non discript apricot kernel oil, it was meh. Obviously Clairins is a well known higher priced quality product vs. an ordinary oil an you may be saying “ …Read more

I heard about this as someone's dry skin HG on the skincare board. I googled it and loved the basis of the company: Real ingredients backed by science without fillers, fancy packaging or gimmicks. I haven't written a review in forever, but I felt I had to share how amazing this stuff is.
About my skin:
Dry Colorado climate + Retin-A Micro = dry, dehydrated and patchy …

Feb/22/2015

Surprised to see the low reviews. Moving to a dry, semi-arid desert climate, a couple years ago I found my normal moisturizer wasn't enough. I tried Cetaphil (horrible under foundation), Clairins Hydra-Quench Serum (Mehhh, nothing notable ), jojoba/avacado oil (effective but takes too long to sink in), Kate Sommerville Quench Serum ( expensive but effective), Clinique Moisture Surge ( …Read more

It's taken me forever to write a review, (I first tried this back in the Spring) but I figured I would write one since this had "life changing" results for me. (I know you fellow curly girls know what I mean). I could have really used this when I was living in the humid Midwest but I didn't discover it until I moved here to Denver, where it is super dry. Anyways, I have had …Read more

I like this, it smells and tastes pretty good. Most of all it does what it says it will do, and is great for dry craked lips. HOWEVER, my biggest complaint is that it dosen't just melt into your lips, it will melt in your purse /pocket/car ect. And for $20 a pop, there are many other things out there that can give the same effect. Minus the amazing famous brown sugar smell/taste of corse …Read more

I am a hopeless addict when it comes to HE products that claim to smooth,soften, combat frizz without weight. After reading reviews here on MUA of course I had to try it. I was looking for something similar to Kerastase NectarThermique that would moisterize without necessarily needing a blowdryer to work. I have used Super Shine in my hair and let it airdry, and before a blowout. Both resulted in …Read more
