Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion review

Hada Labo needs no introduction as this brand has been around for years with widespread popularity on their Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion.
It recently launch the new Hada Labo SHA light lotion, suitable for people with oily or acne prone skin as it has a lighter formula than their original clear lotion.
Beside the original Hada Labo clear lotion and the light lotion, they also have another one for whitening effect for those who wants fairer skin!

Not forgetting those with sensitive skin. Hada Labo has the Hada Labo ES lotion suitable for you! ES basically means that there are extracted essence for sensitive skin. (I did a review on this product previously!)

Hada Labo has a "Perfect X Simple" philosophy for their skincare products and you can be sure that their products do not contain unnecessary additive, colorant, fragrance and mineral oil that will burden the skin. Only the finest, purest and highly effective ingredients that are beneficial to the skin are retained for maximum effectiveness. Not only that, one bottle of the Hada Labo SHA Hydration lotion is sold in Japan every 2 seconds!

The Hada Labo Hydration Clear Lotion is suitable for people with normal to dry skin. Don't be fool by the word "lotion" as most of us associate it to being a milky texture, the Hada labo lotions are different as they have a watery, moist liquid texture that feels almost like water. However, this watery liquid texture is able to moisturize deeply into all layers of the skin (and that speaks volume because the skin has six layers!). The star ingredient is the Hyaluronic acid that helps to moisturize the skin from the surface to deep within, but the best thing is, it contains THREE TYPES of Hyaluronic acid!
Just ONE gram of Hyaluronic acid is able to retain up to 6 litres of water!!
It is pH balanced, has low irritation with no added fragrance, colors and oil.
How to use it? Simple apply it on your face after cleansing every morning and evening and pat until it absorbs.

If you feel like your skin is drier than usual, soak a few cotton pads with the lotion and spread them over your face like a DIY mask!

I really love Hada Labo lotion as it really gets the job done in ensuring that my face is moisturized. Their lotion is a must-have for me when I'm travelling oversea to colder countries such as the UK as it prevents my face from getting drier. This product is really multi-functional as you can use it on your body too. Not to mention, apart from using it as a lotion, you can also use it as a toner to second cleanse your face after cleansing to remove the excess impurities left on your skin. Just soak one cotton pad with the product and clean your face in an upwards motion with it.
Hada Labo is suitable for both genders, all age group and has a product for all skin types!
You can also use it in humid countries such as Singapore and it does not have the sticky or greasy feeling once applied!

Hada Labo SHA hydrating lotion is retailing for $22.90, which is really affordable as one bottle would last you a long way! You only need a few drops of it per day.
There's no excuse for you to not try this as you can redeem a free sample of the Hada Labo Hydrating Lotion to try from TheSampleStore! (
