[Review] One Drop Locks Up an Ocean

Sunday 12 August 2012

Who here wants more hydrated skin?
Something that unlocks younger looking eyes?

I know I would want to!
Was talking to one of my friends about hydrating our skin a few days ago!

So... what brand is able to do this?
It's Hada Labo!

My first advertorial since I came back from USA!
P.S Hada Labo is available in USA too! Saw it in Little Tokyo in Los Angeles!

First up... 

Hada Labo Eye Cream 
One drop unlocks younger looking eyes.
A combination of 3 types of hyaluronic acid for 3X the hydration power.

1. 3 types of Hyaluronic Acid (Super, Nano, Normal) for thorough and deep moisturization; 
2. ACTIFLOW ingredient increases blood circulation, lightens dark circles and puffiness; 
3. Jojoba Oil smoothens fine lines around eye area. 

Just like all Hada Labo products, this eye cream is SIMPLE: pH balanced with no animal derivatives, fragrance, mineral oil, alcohol nor colorant. It is gentle enough even for sensitive skin. 

This eye cream is to be used twice daily after applying the Hada Labo lotion by dabbing a small amount under and around the eye area using the fingertips. It has a milky texture - so it wont anyhow flow around and easy to apply :) Regular application of the eye cream will improve the skin texture, wrinkles and puffiness around the eyes.

Hmmm first time applying it. Need to apply for a few more days to feel the effect right?
But it feels nice on my skin :) Not sticky at all. Can give it a try!

Update: Been using the eye cream for a few days. And my eyes area felt more hydrated and less puffy! :)

The Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing Eye Cream (15g) will be available at all Watsons nationwide at $21.90 starting from June 2012.

Next up...

Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion
NEW Hada Labo 'Nano' formula penetrates deeper for a fuller hydration.
The super hydration power in had lab has now gone ultra!

New 'Nano' Super Hyaluronic Acid in Hada Labo boosts its hydration power, and now enables full and thorough hydration from skin surface to deep within. 

The new 'nano' hyaluronic acid molecule is 1/20 the size of the normal hyaluronic acid's. This enables penetration to areas deep within the skin. The other two hyaluronic acid, 'Normal' and 'Super' hydrate skin closer to the surface. With a superior combination of all three hyaluronic acid (Nano, Super, Normal), Hada Labo Hydrating range can give your skin a deeper and fuller hydration.

It has a watery Gel-like texture, slightly harder to apply compared to the eye cream (since it's watery)

It's my first time using this product too. 
Just like the eye cream it takes a few days before any visible effect I guess!
And the best thing is they are giving free samples for this product!

Update: Been using this SHA hydrating lotion for afew days and my skin does feels more hydrated! Why didn't I get this earlier? It could have saved my skin when I was in the states! USA is super dry!

  1. I know this was a while back but I just found this post. I was wondering where in Little Tokyo did you find Hadalabo products? I've been looking online but I would prefer to see the product in person. :)

    1. Hi, it was just a random japanese cosmetics store that we passed by in LA's Little Tokyo, Japanese Village Plaza. They sold lots of Japanese cosmetics there. I have no idea what is the name of the shop though. ><
