I requested a sample for this product online and surprisingly, it was really good! Just a few drops and it was enough to glide over through my whole face Besides that, it actually helps lock in my skin's moisture; leaving my skin feeling hydrated and plump all day. However, it's a bit too expensive for me to buy the "real thing," but I would definitely recommend this to those who seek for a good hydrating product
I have very lightly dry skin and use this product every day after I come out of the shower as a moisturiser and that's really all the moisturiser I need on a daily basis. Even though it says toner, do not put it on a cotton pad, you'll be wasting it. Just drop 2-3 drops onto your palms, rub together, run all over your face then pat your face til it's dry. Worth the money as it lasts basically forever. One bottle lasts me 1.5 years with daily use.
For any college or uni student like me, i believe majority of us can only afford drugstore skincare brands. I've tried tons of skin care products available in Guardian and Watson stores. Some worked well for me ,some didn't. I've had really dry and oily skin since secondary school and it was really a headache for me. I've sampled some of the higher end products which helped my skin a lot but as it was just a tiny sample, i ran out of it. Since then, i've been trying to find a drugstore product that will help me as much as these products did. A few months back , i found the HADA LABO SUPER HYALURONIC ACID HYDRATING LOTION (170ml) at Guardians. I bought it in a box which came with the 170ml bottled product and a 170ml refill pack for RM69.90. The bottle is just like any typical Hada Labo lotion(toner) plastic bottle and the refill pack is environmental friendly as you get to reuse the bottle instead of throwing it away. This hydrating lotion contains 4 types of Hyaluronic acid (HA)- the large- sized HA, medium sized HA, super HA and the nano HA. These HAs will help to hydrate and make your skin look youthful again. The product doesn't have any smell , is transparent and the liquid gives a little 'slippery' feeling when touched. After cleansing my face, I pour out a few drops on my palms and pat it onto my skin until all the lotion is absorbed, just like the directions given on the bottle. I found that by patting the product onto the skin , it helps the skin absorb and no product will be wasted. My face feels hydrated and soft instantly . More importantly, it does not contain alcohol and does not leave that stick, greasy after feeling on your face .Besides that, this lotion may have also helped in preventing my breakouts.
Just like what it claims on the bottle , i have certainly feel that my dry skin is deeply hydrated to preserve its moisture and also helped to absorb the products that i apply after this. My skin has finally got the 'glow' it suppose to have and also prevents dry patches to be seen after applying makeup. For a drugstore product, this has certainly impressed me and it may even be better than some high end products out there. Therefore if you're trying to find an affordable toner (lotion) which suits every skin type , i would definitely recommend you to give this a try.
I like the thick consistency as most toners that I have used are of pretty thin consistency that feels like I'm using water. This one is slightly different. I like the fact that there's no scent to it too. However, this takes slightly longer to absorb into the skin and it doesn't seem to work well with gel based moisturizer. What I realised is both doesn't absorb well if used together.
I think this works best with oil-based serum and cream moisturizer. More suitable for night skincare routine actually.
maybe the toner is hydrating one, so i think it is nt so suitable for people with combination skin. however, i found out that consistently using this toner will have a very little and nt very visible whitening effect. so, dont forget to apply the toner at ur neck so ur neck can have a whitening effect too. the design of the bottle is good, easy to pour out and easy to keep. the product also doesnt hav any smell as it claim. however, i din feel that the toner is hydrating my skin as my skin (especially area around my nose) become oily after a few hours of using it.
