Hada Labo Haul + Review part 1: Cleansing

It’s been a while everyone.. Although my last post was only this Tuesday, hehe.. Happy Sunday to all of you.. ^^

Now I’m back with a skincare review! This time is about Hada Labo, a very famous skincare product from Japan. I’m sure most of you know it already la..

One drop locks up an ocean..

I was organizing my beauty corner in my room when I realized that in my skincare drawer I have so many Hada Labo products.. So I decided I have to do the review..


Now when did I buy all of them? It’s a blur, hehe.

A little bit of ingredient story..

So, Hada Labo star ingredient is the Super Hyaluronic Acid (SHA). It has twice the moisture retention capacity of Hyaluronic Acid. Even 1 gm of Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to 6 liters of water, meaning: if 2 liters is about 8 glass of water , so 6 liters would be.. You do the math.. :)

Bottom line is, it will keep your skin hydrated better and feels smoother, suppler and more radiant. What I like also about Hada Labo products, they can be used on sensitive skin cause they’re free from oil, fragrance & alcohol.

On to the review..

Skincare regime usually starts with the cleansing part, so here they are..

Hada Labo Arbutin Whitening Face Wash

Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Face Wash

For the face wash, I bought them in their mini size of 50 g, not the regular one since I wanted to do a trial first. Plus it’s easier to bring whenever I’m travelling..


Ok for the first one is the Hada Labo Arbutin Whitening Face Wash. The packaging design is simple, just like the brand’s philosophy, Perfect X Simple!  


The texture is like a lotion, the color is white as you can see and when it touches water it will lather into foamy wash..

When I use it, I was surprised to find that there’s a fruity scent that came out when I spread it to my face. It’s just at the beginning, after that the scent is gone. Smells like orange/citrusy to me.

But the main effect I can see is that my brightened up a bit after using this, probably because of the Arbutin content and it doesn’t make my skin dry. Thumbs up! ^^


Next is Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Face Wash also in 50 g mini size


From the texture and color, it’s almost similar with the Arbutin one. It doesn’t have that citrusy smell, though, it’s scentless. And when I use it, my skin feels so moisturized even though I just washed it. It doesn’t take away the natural moisture from my skin, so I think it’s a good thing. My face is soft and bouncy! It’s perfect for use daily and okay for people with sensitive skin. :)

Next I have the Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Make Up Remover


Hugeee bottle.. It’s 200 ml so I think it’s gonna last a while for me..


Texture is gel almost to water, so the consistency is very runny and dissolve quickly when it touches the skin

I use this after I got home from the office and want to remove my makeup. Because it’s cleansing water, it’s supposed to can only remove the light makeup. Since I don’t really use heavy makeup to the office, so I guess this one is enough for me, even liquid eyeliner is gone with this, woot! But after that I still continue with face wash to make sure all the traces of makeup is gone to prevent clogged pores.

If I use heavier makeup for special occasion, stuff like gel eyeliner and triple coat mascara can’t be removed with this, so I have to use my regular makeup remover. Psstt, I saw on Sasa counter that Hada Labo also has cleansing oil! Wooooo.. :D Ok la save for later, hohoho.. Btw if you want to browse for Hada Labo’s product & price, here’s the Sasa link for you: click here.
