Review: Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion

Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion
Description: Contains 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid that deeply penetrates the skin(epidermis) to nourish and help restore skin's barrier to prevent moisture loss.

The 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid:
  • Nano Hyaluronic Acid - with molecules size of 1/20 of HA, easily penetrates into the skin innermost layer to deeply moisturize the skin.
  • Super Hyaluronic Acid - with 2x the moisture retention capacity of HA to keep skin hydrated & smooth for a longer period of time.
  • Hyaluronic Acid(HA) - 1gm is able to hold 6 litres of water, effectively locks-in moisture on skin.
Claims to do:
- Instantly hydrates skin and helps preserve it's optimum moisture balance.
- Replenishes and locks-in moisture for complete hydration. skin feels significantly soft and supple.
- Helps improve dry and dehydrated skin, leaving it silky smooth.
- It is free of fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol and colorant. Skin pH balanced. Low irritation.

Directions: Use twice a day after cleansing face. Apply on palms and gently pat onto skin until thoroughly absorbed.

Actually... I bought the wrong item. I thought this was a moisturizer however it turned out to be a toner. -_- In Japan, lotion means toner. lol. However, I did not regret buying this~ FYI, this product is one of the top-bestsellers — 1 SOLD EVERY 4 SECONDS in Japan! Wow that's insanely fast. O_O

Unlike most of the toners I have used back then..., this is really impressive! It hydrates the skin really well and gives skin a bouncy feel. I used rose water, which also provides moisture for the skin, as toner in the past(long long time ago~). However, I can say that this Hada Labo SHA Lotion hydrates even better! No, is way much better! But of course, the SHA hydrating milk hydrates even better than this. LOL. After all, hydrating milk is a hydrating moisturizer while this is a hydrating toner. If use both Hada Labo SHA lotion and hydrating milk together, the hydration level is MIGHTY! XD

Consistency and Color:
Liquid-y and colorless. It does not leaves a sticky layer once absorbed into the skin.

It's fragrance-free!

- hydrates the skin
- lightweight
- gives bouncy effect to the skin
- not sticky
- does not leaves a sticky layer once absorbed into the skin
- 3 types of hyaluronic acid formula~
- no fragrances, mineral oil and alcohol
- no harsh chemical = no side effect!
- friendly packaging - easy to pour out the lotion without much effort
- refill pack available

- NONE! Absolutely love the toner~

Once you finished the bottle, you can purchase the refill pack which is I think SGD$4(?) cheaper than the one which comes in bottle. :D The refill pack is one of the top-bestsellers too! — 1 SOLD EVERY 2 SECONDS in Japan! Σ( ̄。 ̄ノ)ノ

I believe you guys know how bad my acne was in the past yeah yeah~? If you are new to my blog, you can check out "My Acne Story" link at the navigation menu bar at the top of the page for more details on my experience with acne. I used to get breakout in between improvement so after changing my skincare range from acne-fighting products to SHA hydrating products, my breakout stopped. I still do get breakout during "that time of the month"(life being a girl -.-) but other than that, no more breakout.

Uhmmm...I'm not saying that these products are something which cure acne because well...after all this product line focus on "hydrating" instead of "troubled skin". However, in my situation, I believe"lack of moisture" is the root cause of my acne. On the other hand, I mentioned before that I have dry skin as well... so that's why hydrating does helps me to keep my acne at bay~ Now you know why I really love Hada Labo SHA line/products. XD

  1. If I were to get only one, would you suggest I get the Hydrating Milk or the lotion? Does the hydrating milk have an oily feel? I don't have major acne problems, mostly around T-zone only.

    1. Sorry for the late reply... (><")

      Well, they are both different... Hydrating Lotion is a toner while hydrating Milk is a moisturizer.

      If you need a hydrating toner, get the lotion.
      If you need a hydrating moisturizer, go ahead to get the milk lotion...?
      Don't worry, they are not greasy. :)

      I would advise you to get the milk lotion because moisturizing is one of the most important steps in any skincare routine.

      Hope this helps you.

  2. Thank you! It's helped me a lot! So I can apply Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Lotion as a toner and Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Milk as a moisturizer right?

    1. Yes, that's right!
      Glad that you find it helpful~ :)
