Hey there, I’ve just found a 5-star product and want to share it with you. If you’ve been struggling with dehydrated or flaky skin, Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Face Wash may just be your savior. Read on to see what’s so great (and bad) about this face wash!
What’s Great about Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Face Wash?
1. Cured my dry patches and dehydrated skin
Those who have been following my blog would know how I have been battling dehydrated and patchy skin. That started at least a couple of months back and could have been triggered by a new Vitamin C serum I was testing. For some reason, there was no way to reverse the condition of my skin even when I stopped using the serum and other harsher products.
I went through futile attempts applying the richest cream and serum I could possibly laid my hands on. In the end, what turned the whole situation around was a face wash.
Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Face Wash miraculously cured my skin of dry patches within a couple of days. I was so delighted because a problem that had bugged me for close to half a year was gone in a matter of days. No kidding.
2. Soft and hydrated skin
Not only was my dry patches gone, my skin felt soft and sufficiently hydrated. Even immediately after a wash, it didn’t have that tight squeaky feeling.
I could wash my face just before a jog and not be afraid that the wind element would further dry up my skin.
Placing Hada Labo and another face wash side by side, I noticed Hada Labo being surrounded by a watery-looking border, while Perfect Whip appeared solid and film. Perhaps, that’s the difference between a more hydrating face wash and one that’s not?
3. Gentle for sensitive skin
Hada Labo Hydrating Face Wash contains no alcohol and is free of fragrances, mineral oil and colorant. It should hence be suitable for those with sensitive skin.
4. Stayed Pimple-free
As hydrating as it was, Hada Labo Hydrating Face Wash was able to clean well too. No pimple issues from using this product at all.
5. Lathers well
I tend to lean towards face wash that lathers than those that feels like a smooth film or gel over the face during a wash – think of Cetaphil. Not to say that those soup-free face wash aren’t good. It’s just that it was so hard for me to tell when the cleaning process was over.
And I do think a soap-based wash probably works better in removing makeup/cleansing oil residue and provides a little more exfoliation than a gentle face wash.
Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Face Wash does just that. It lathers nicely – not too much, not too little. I was able to tell when the cleaning process was officially over when my face no longer felt soapy.
1. Cost more, Contains less
Hada Labo Hydrating Face Wash costs S$13.50, more than twice the price of an average drug-store facial cleanser.
At 100g, it also contains about 30% lesser in quantity than an average face wash.
If you have dry skin or are starting to experience flaky patches, probably due to weather or the natural process of aging, Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Face Wash could help balance your skin’s moisture level. It’d solved mine rather miraculously.
On the other hand, those who have normal or oily skin probably can save some money and buy the other highly-recommended face wash like the one I was using before I turned 40. Rating: 5/5
I’ve added this face wash to my Japan Must-buy List.
