And Why? Japan skincare/ beauty line usually are in good condition packaging or even promises good result and the best thing about them is they are affordable! So, being a beauty junkie. Let me introduce my "Hits for 2012" or you can its my staple or must have ever since 2011.
So today, im going to introduce to you a brand called "HADA LABO" The name sounded like a ocean dont they?
WHY JAPANESE SKINCARE LOTION IS DIFFERENT?
Ever since, i started reading on the book "The Japanese Skincare Revolution by Chizu Saeki", she inspired me so much about japanese skincare especially their "lotion". It is so essential for every japanese lady. Somehow it changed my perception, as normally people have around 5 products in their skincare regime, but for japanese ladies they have around 9, which explains why they are always on the top notch being the trademark for beautiful skin. In this case, ladies i think we better not be lazy and be conscientious and find out what works best for yourself ok?

WHAT I DO USE?
SIMPLE WAYS TO PERFECT HYDRATION WITH HADA LABO AND WHAT I LIKE ABOUT THEM?
1) Continous Improvement- keeping up with the external environment and improve what is needed based on customer feedabck.
A good way of skincare line, that listens and tries to keep up with feedbacks and improve their formulation to a better one. To cite an example, Hada Labo introduces ‘Nano’ technology in its formula for better absorption of beneficial ingredients by skin in 2011. So now, you do not worry about sticky or tacky feeling, it just absorbs so quickly.
2) Wide range of skincare range which caters for different needs
ABOUT HADA LABO
The Hada Labo brand reached Singapore shores in June 2010 with the introduction of the no. 1 face lotion in Japan, Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion. Its star ingredient, Super Hyaluronic Acid, can retain 12 litres of water with 1g (2X more than normal Hyaluronic Acid), giving abundant moisture for bouncy, smooth skin.
The brand has received overwhelming response from Singaporean women nationwide-Bestselling face lotion 2010 and Best Newcomer Brand 2010, Watsons Singapore
WHAT I AM CURRENTLY USING?
HADA LABO SUPER HYALURONIC HYDRATING LOTION (SHA LOTION)
The new hydrating lotion contains 3 different types of hyaluronic acid, and they are namely:
1.Nano Hyaluronic Acid (with molecules that are 1/20 the size of the normal hyaluronic acid, to enable easy penetration into the skin for deep hydration)
2. Super Hyaluronic Acid (It has twice the moisture retention capacity of the normal HA, and can keep the skin hydrated and smooth for a longer period of time)
3.Hyaluronic Acid (Which is able to hold 6 litres of water in 1gm, to effectively lock-in moisture on the skin).
RESULTS AND HOW I USE THEM?
I use them day and night, alternating with the whitening arbutin one if i do have some acne scars or when my skin is slightly yellowish and i wish for something that brightens. 1-2 drops is adequate for my entire face.
3 Times a day, ill do a lotion mask, like what you have in Chizu Saeki Video. Whereby, i leave it on for 3-5 minutes and skin really feel soft and moist thereafter. Not oily at all, it allows your skin to feel brightened after a week of usage. I cannot stress how much i love about this product, even my bf say i super obsessed with them.
HADA LABO ARBUTIN WHITENING LOTION
This lotion have active ingriedients of:
1) Whitening ingredient- Arbutin that penetrates into the innermost layers of the skin to reduce pigmentation & dark spots, leaving skin flawlessly fair.
2) Contains Vitamin C to target dull, yellowish complexion. Promote even skin tone & gives thorough brightening.
3) Hyaluronic Acid to hydrate intensively and keeping the skin soft and supple.
RESULTS AND HOW I USE THEM?
This lotion particulary i use it more during the nightime, or even before i put on a mask i slap on a generous amount of 2-3 drops. It has a lighter solution as compared to the SHA Lotion. So this is definitely a much more suitable range for oily prone skin. Sometimes when i have acne scars, i tend to use this as a lotion mask and leave it on for 3-5 minutes. It leaves my skin soft, moist and brightened. Guarantee a good product!
Also, i tried making myself a mist using this lotion. And how?
STEPS FOR MAKING A DIY MIST WITH HADA LABO LOTION
Step1: Do not waste any essence you have after putting on the mask. Simply pour it into a empty Spray container.
Step 2: Add in SHA Hada labo Lotion or Arbutin Whitening lotion. I usually add in 10-15 drops.
Steps3. Add in water, running tap water or boiled water.
Step 4: Refrigerate the mist for a day
Step 5: You have a hydrating mist and all ready to go. So simple yes? i do that, and i bring it out, comes in so handy and its really cheap!
NOTE: Do not keep this mist going for more than a week or so? Try to finish it, as we did not add any glycerin in for the solution to stay longer on shelves.
So do try it out yes? Good luck!
