Hada Labo Skincare Review

Okay. Hi.

So this is my first beauty product review and i'm so excited that i am going to review about one of my most favourite brand of all time, Hada Labo. Before you proceed you might wanna read a little about my skin history, you know, just so you know :3

Anyway, here it goes.

Brand Philosophy

Hada Labo stands for the philosophy of “PERFECT x SIMPLE” a skincare range that brings beauty back to the basics – perfect, simple and confident.

The Hada Labo skin care line is the result of the joint development effort between The Mentholatum Co. and Rohto Pharmaceuticals Co. to make a good quality skin care product, backed up by excellent technology.

Using the technology developed through the production of OTC drugs, Hada Labo skincare line is produced in a pharmaceutical manufacturing environment, under strict GMP guidelines to ensure Quality, Reliability & Effectiveness in the products.

Hada Labo was launched in Japan in 2004 and was exceptionally well received in a short span of time. Beauty lovers very quickly embraced the brand, and Hada Labo has proven to be a success with its Super Hyaluronic Moisturizing Lotion becoming the No 1 Face Lotion in Japan, sold more than 30 million* bottles.

Despite the impressive philosophy above, let's go straight to the review.


I will be reviewing the following products in order :

- Hada Labo Ultimate Moisturizing Face Wash
- Hada Labo Ultimate Moisturizing Lotion
- Hada Labo Ultimate Moisturizing Cream


Swatch orders :

1. Hada Labo Ultimate Moisturizing Face Wash.
2. Hada Labo Ultimate Moisturizing Lotion
3. Hada Labo Ultimate Moisturizing Cream

Price are around Rp.30.000 - Rp.40.000 which is around US$30-US$40 for the face wash and lotion, while the cream is a little bit more pricey, ranging around Rp.50.000 - Rp.90.000 or US$50 - US$90. Price is still affordable but may or may not be a little too expensive but it is worth the product.

Hada Labo Ultimate Moisturizing Face Wash

What it does :

- Hydrates as it cleanses. Helps restore and preserve skin’s natural moisture, leaving it silky smooth.
- Gently cleanses leaving skin comfortably hydrated and refreshed.
- Skin pH balanced. Low irritation.

My review :

The description above really live up to it's name because it is completely true.
I have been using tons of face wash labeled for dry skin, oily skin even acne-prone skin, but all it does was just wash off the entire oil on my face leaving my face completely dry which makes it produces MORE oil later on, therefore resulting in my face to breakout even more acne. This face wash cleanse my face very well, and when you wash it off you can feel it has moisturizes your face. And it is still moisturized after a few hours later.

Would you repurchase it?

Oh yes, definitely a yes.

My review :

Actually this is the first Hada Labo product i purchased before any others. When i was browsing through several beauty products to find a perfect moisturizer to replace my old ones, i came across this one, and i was interested by the label saying "1 SOLD EVERY 4 SECONDS IN JAPAN!" and it was kind of cheap so i thought, eh, why not give it a try.

Oh, now i know why. It is very impressive! What makes me fall in love instantly is that first it is odourless, second it is colorless, and third you can really see that your complexion has been hydrated really well after a few days using it regularly. I don't know what is in that bottle but man it is like a miracle to me *A*

i look like i am exaggerating but really i'm not -___-

Here is the close up of the lotion. If i replace the lotion with a drop of water you'll definitely don't realize it because the clear texture really resembles the crystal clear of a water. After blending it to your complexion it will absorbs right away, leaving your skin sticky-free.

Would you repurchase it?

Are you kidding me, of course!

Hada Labo Ultimate Moisturizing Cream

What it does :

- Contains two excellent ingredients, Hyaluronic Acid and Super Hyaluronic Acid that deeply penetrates the skin (epidermis) to nourish and helps restore skin's barrier to prevent moisture lost.
- Helps soften epidermis, leaving skin smooth and hydrated.
- Light and non-greasy cream that infuses your skin with continuous moisture.
- Skin pH balanced. Low irritation.
- Free of fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol & colorant.

My review :

I was shopping with Vivian at Watson and she asks me to try this. I was a little eager to purchase the cream first because of the price, you know a little bit more expensive than the other two. And i thought, i already got the lotion, why should i purchase another lotion just for night and for the same effect? So Vivian explained to me that night cream works twice as much as day lotion and it provides you more effect than lotion does. So looking at how awesome the lotion does to me, i decided to bought it.

The cream's texture is more sticky than the lotion, definitely, and it is more solid than the watery lotion. When you apply it to your face, it makes your face appear wet and sticky, and it is not as light as the lotion. But it really does hydrate your face when you sleep, and when you wake up you will feel your face less dry, especially when you sleep with an air conditioner. It also dries out your acne day by day, which makes this cream my darling because i really needed that :*

Would you repurchase it?

Ah yes, price is worth the quality~


Pros :
- Colourless
- Odourless
- Hydrates skin well
- Dries out acne
- Perfect for sensitive skin

Cons :
- Maybe a little bit pricey
- I want the packaging size to be bigger :P
