        Packaging

         


        5

         

         

         

        It doesn’t come with a box, just a simple plastic bottle. Make sure your palms are clean when you are pouring the product out or it might contaminate your lotion.

         

         


         

         

         

         

         

        56

         

         

         

         

         

         

        This doesn’t come in a box either. Just a cardboard and plastic cover over it. Packaging in form of a pump bottle. You need about 1-2(if dry skin) pumps each time. However, when we bought this, there was a factory default. The pump was not attached to the bottle, but Hadalabo DHLed an entire new bottle from KL all the way to Paris. Great customer service!

         

         

         


        Texture

         


         

         

        I’m not surprised when i read that 1 bottle of this lotion is sold every 4 seconds. It simply has a winner written all over it because of it’s texture, moisturizing properties and price.

         


        The lotion or what we would also call a toner, is slightly thicker than water, kind of like goo-ey water. It doesn’t absorbed when applied directly , you would have to pat it around your face until it gets absorbed. Some of you may not be a fan of the gooey texture but we loved it. It felt very comfortable and hydrating on the skin. The texture here is a winner ! It isn’t very sticky, you will have to wait a while for the slight stickiness to go away.

         

         

         


        This is the how the quantity of 2 pumps is. Usually one is enough unless you have dry skin :

         

        Essence is very sticky and gooey and thick  :

         


         

         

        Now, the texture of the essence : we are not so much of a fan. It is rather sticky and hard to absorb and leaves the skin sticky and feels a little too heavy. You will need to wait for a longer time for the stickiness to go away. ( Apparently the JuJu Aquamoist’s Super Hyaluronic Acid Essence is less sticky than this ) .

         

         


        Ingredients

         


         

         

        The ingredient list is simple and short.


        Free of fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol & colorant. It is packed with chemicals such as butylene glycol, PPG-10 Methyl GLucose Ether, etc.

        Their star ingredient which is Hyaluronic Acid, or Sodium Hyaluronate is only number 6 on the list.

        There is also another Hyaluronate on the bottom of the list

         

         


        1. Sodium Acetyl Hyaluronate

        Shiseido developed sodium acetyl hyaluronate (AcHA), through partial substitution of hydroxyl groups of sodium hyaluronate (HA) by acetyl groups. The treatment let the sodium hyaluronate possess hydrophobicity in addition to the original hydrophilic nature. The new compound showed remarkably increased affinity to the skin surface and water holding capacity(“anchoring humectant”). The high water holding capacity and corneum softening effect brought by the “anchoring” effect are the advantages of sodium acetyl hyaluronate.

         

         


        2. Hydroxyethyl cellulose

        This is the product that causes the gellified texture of the lotion. Hydroxyethyl cellulose is a gelling and thickening agent derived from cellulose

         

         

         


        Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Pentylene Glycol, PPG-10 Methyl Glucose Ether, Caprylic/Caprilic Triglyceride, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate / Sodium  Acryloydimethyl Taurate Copolymer / Squalane / Polysorbate 60, Sodium Hyaluronate, Limnanthes Alba( Meadowfoam ) Seed Oil, Methylparaben, Disodium EDTA, Disodium Succinate, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate.

         

         

         


        Conclusion

         

        It’s no mystery why Hada Labo has gained so much success worldwide – while it’s ingredient list are simple and rather very normal – which is why the price of the products are low – they perform the most basic task of every skincare item does – which is hydrating.

         


        It is also suitable for all skin types. The lotion really does give a hydration booster to your face and we’ve used it whenever we need some extra hydration boost. It also combines well with any other products. You can even refrigerate it prior to using it, so that the cold shrink your pores when you apply it on your face.

         


        The essence, we are not really a fan of it. It is sticky and feels rather gooey and heavy on the face and needs to take a long time to adjust to the skin.

         


        Combination of both really does make your skin smooth and hydrated.

         


        If you’re looking for a cheap, and a most basic skincare set, you can give this brand a try.

         


        However those with oily skin, skip the essence.
