Review: Hada Labo


Back to review on another well-known brand, Hada Labo.
I was sent these two products to do a review.

1.  Hada Labo SHA Moisturizing Eye Cream
2.  Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion with new Nano Formula

I have used these two product for a few days now and now I'm writing a review on it based on the results.

The SHA Moisturizing Eye Cream claims to Lighten Dark Circles, Reduce Puffiness and Fine Lines.
I would say that it does reduce puffiness as every time I wake up in the morning it isn't as puffy as it is without using the eye cream.
However, for Lightening of dark circles and reducing of fine lines, I would say that I couldn't really see a difference because I've only used this product for a few days. So maybe I might need more time to see a difference.
 I like the fact that the packaging is in a pump instead of the usual container form because this is more hygienic and easier to get the amount of products you want without waiting any excess (if you use the container one).

This product is in a cream form and it is very easily to apply as it blends very easily onto your skin. It is pH balanced with no animal derivatives, fragrance, mineral oil, alcohol and colorant added. It is also gentle enough even for sensitive skin.

Next would be the highly raved SHA Hydrating Lotion.

I have always thought that it is like a toner and is in liquid form.
After using this product, I realized that (it is liquid form) the lotion is a little gluey and sticky kind of texture.
But it looks like water. Haha
*Ignore my old woman palm* LOL

I find that this product is very moisturizing and it doesn't break me out.
I am very particular about skin care products because I have very sensitive skin.
I've tried the other Hada Labo product (like milk, I forgot the name) but it broke me out so I stopped using it but thank god this product doesn't.

The texture of the lotion is very thick although it doesn't feel heavy on the skin.
When applied onto my skin, at the start it is very sticky which I don't really like it.
It would take awhile to blend into the skin because it is a bit thick but after it is absorbed to the skin, it's not sticky.
What I don't like is just the time taken for it to blend to my skin because I'm a very lazy person. Haha :P

What is different from the usual Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion is that this Lotion has a new Nano Formula that penetrates deeper for fuller hydration of the skin. The new "nano" hyaluronic acid molecule is 1/20 the size of the normal hyaluronic acid's, therefore allowing deeper penetration to areas deep within the skin.

In short, it is more hydrating to the skin as compared to the previous one.

Before I end off this post, I would say that I will continue to use the Hydrating Lotion as I find it very hydrating for my skin (although I have oily skin) and it doesn't break me out.
However, I would not comment on the effectiveness of the eye cream as I need more time to see if it works but I would say it isn't a bad product.
