Review: Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Range

Does this look familiar to you?? yes, by now, you should be able to see Hada Labo products available at almost all Watsons islandwide.

A couple of weeks back, I was privileged to receive 3 full size products from the Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Range to try ... pretty excited since the best seller product -> The Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturising Lotion which has a sale record of 1 bottle being sold every 4 seconds.(Which works out to be 900 bottles sold every 1 hour!!!)

So here goes the product information and my reviews of the 3 products that I received:

These are the 5 products in the Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Range...

and I will be touching on the first 3 steps...

First of all, you must be thinking what makes Hada Labo Hydrating range so unique.. its because it contains Super Hyaluronic Acid, and advanced skin hydrating ingredient, which retains twice the moisture of Hyaluronic Acid.. it leaves the skin surface lastingly hydrated, softer and more supple. PLUS its products are all free of fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol and colorant.

Step 1: Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Face Wash ($12.90/100g)

Product description:
Hydrates as it cleanses. Helps restore and preserve skin's natural moisture, leaving it silky smooth.

This is the amount of cleanser I use..

Add some water and lather it into foam.. It lathers pretty fast, to create foamy & fluffy foam in an instance.. so just use gentle circular motions to wash your whole face before rinsing thoroughly with water. Result is clean skin, without any tightness.

Step 2: Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturising Lotion ($22.90/170ml)

Product Descriptions:
  • Instantly hydrates skin and helps preserve its optimum moisture balance.
  • Replenishes and locks-in moisture for complete hydration.
  • Helps improve dry and dehydrated skin, leaving it silky smooth.

2 drops of Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion is all I need for my whole face.. (which means 1 whole bottle can last a long time) This lotion acts like a toner.. the texture is rather watery with a bit of stickness to it..

Next, the most important step is to gently pat the lotion onto skin until the lotion until its fully absorbed.. I tried patting on for 2-3 minutes, but I find that its still abit sticky on the surface after I pat in the lotion as per directed...  However, I read reviews saying that the lotion absorbed into their skin very fast and leave a smooth finish.. Think my skin is quite different from the rest..

Here is a video showing you how to pat on the lotion:

Now you get the idea how to pat the lotion??

3) Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid ($30.90/30g)

Product Descriptions:
  • Provides deep hydration with a high concentration of Super Hyaluronic Acid
  • Intensely boosts and optimizes skin's hydration level
  • Skin appears visibly smooth, luminous and healthy
  • Skin PH balanced, low irritation

Just 1 pump is enough for the whole face.. It is gel-like and is slightly more sticky than lotion. but as soon as it is being pat into skin, it turn more watery and melts into skin, but leaving a thin film of product on my skin. (still abit sticky though)

My Likes about the Hada Labo products:
  • They are all free of fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol and colorants.
  • They are made in Japan.
  • A little product is required per application/use.. so a little goes a long way.
  • They are pretty affordable and easily available.

But its a pity that the products do not suit my skin type ( sensitive, acne-prone and combination) because the very next day (after I used the above 3-step Hada Labo regime), I have got breakouts, 3 pimples just popped out overnight..:(  Why so many people have got good results except me??? There are many cotters who reported very satisfying results.. Do not understand why a product that is free of fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol and colorants can cause breakout to my skins.. Could the products be to rich for my skin type??

I feedbacked my concerns and I was told that I was one of the very rare cases with a bad experience after using Hada Labo products. I was told that the essence is about 3X richer than the lotion.. (so its the essence that is too rich for me??) Maybe I should just use Hada Labo hydrating wash follow by Hada labo Hydrating lotion or only incorporate the essence into my regime once or twice a week, as a booster.. since its 3X richer than the lotion.
