Popular Japanese brand Hada Labo has finally hit the shores of Singapore. The Super Hyaluronic Acid (SHA) Hydrating Lotion is apparently their star item and one bottle is sold every 4 seconds in Japan!

As Singapore gets more and more self-sufficient, fans of this brand do not need to fly all the way to Japan to stock up because Hada Labo is now available at Watsons!

Hada Labo provided the above 3 products to Miss Glitzy’s Monologue and my friend+reader Steph had the opportunity to try and review the products.

I have very dehydrated skin, however, due to the humidity and heat in Singapore, I find it very difficult to apply a moisturiser without feeling sticky and uncomfortable. For many years, I have stuck to SKII miracle water, because it leaves my skin feeling smooth and nourished. However, it is a very costly regime to upkeep. When I read about the Super Hyaluronic Acid (SHA) Moisturising series online, I was very excited to try the products!

SHA Hydrating Face Wash ($12.90): Usually, I use cream or gel facial washes because foams leave me feeling tightness in the cheek area. The SHA facewash, which is a foam facial wash, was gentle, effective as a cleanser and left no residual feeling, nor any feeling of tautness. Because it is unfragranced and colourant free, it is excellent for thinner and sensitive skins too. It is comparable to Cetaphil , but is foamier and cleanses better.

SHA Hydrating Lotion ($22.90): The hydrating lotion left my skin feeling silky and supple. For girls on a budget, I dare say that this product is comparable to the SKII Miracle water. For a better experience, the moisturising lotion can be left in the fridge, for a cooling and soothing treatment right in your own home. My skin felt beautifully moisturised throughout the day, in the office air conditioned environment as well as out in the humidity after work. There was no sticky feeling at all.

SHA Hydrating Essence ($30.90): This is light, and glides smoothly on the skin. This is an excellent base for makeup, and allows powder to glide on smoothly. I also travelled to Hanoi and used these products. However, the essence proved too sticky for Hanoi’s humidity in the summer.

Verdict: After two weeks of use, I have only praise for this range of Hada Labo products. Moisture is key to young, healthy skin and this range is affordable and effective. If there is one product you must buy, I urge you to get the Hydrating Lotion. For frequent travellers or cabin crew, these range of products replenish the moisture levels of the skin, but severely dry conditions or skin may need richer lotions or even oil. As for me, I think I’ll try the whitening range next!

Thanks Steph for your comprehensive review. There are opportunities for you to try and review beauty products too. Join me on Facebook and keep a look out from time to time for my shout-out!
