Lock an Ocean on your face – Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion review

Sponsored Review

Heylo everyone! So i am back talking about 1 of the most raved about
skincare products today, the 
majestic Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion.

Hada Labo SHA Lotion (use this) 
This is a sponsored review but rest assured that this post will be as honest as the rest of my sharing because even without the sponsorship, i have always been a regular customer of Hada Labo.

You would have known if you read my blog regularly, or you may read my previous entry HERE.

Like what i mentioned previously, i have never tried any products for my skin because:

1) i am lazy
2) i always think my skin is fine (no acne problem, no major issues)
3) i couldnt find a simple and convincing product

Recapping abit, I was whining to my little sister about how “flaky” and dry i feel about my skin and she passed me a bottle of Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion.
I did not really pin my hopes high because i was already trying out the famous “Miracle Water” (not gona slam the brand but you should know which one i am talking about) but there was no miracle for  me  and that bottle of “Miracle Water” was not cheap, despite the fact that it was  given by a working partner.

Having the mentality of “no harm trying”, i slapped on the Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion all over my face.
Well, according to the advertisement, a drop of Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion can lock up an ocean. 
To be honest, i was still skeptical then but really, it was one of the best decisions i ever made for my skin in my 20+ years of life.
(nope, not revealing my age lol, not  that it matters but if you wana know,  i can tell you, i shant announce it publicly. :p)


The result is INSTANT.

Yah, you might think it is a little too exaggerating, but trust me, i wouldnt praise the product if it is not giving me any result. Not even if it is sponsored. You know how much i detest manipulating untrue reviews.
You get the drift.

So, back to what i was saying, the result was instant and i can feel my flaky skin turns smooth immediately.
I was like “ok, maybe i am just heng (lucky) this time”

But there was no harm trying since it makes me feel good and thus i started using it daily, twice a day, morning and night.
My skin has never never feel so hydrated and bouncy.
The flaky problem no longer haunts me (my skin was so dry that it starts to peels and i have flaks of dry skin hanging on my face. Gross much!)
and ever since the day i started on this product, i have no regrets but i am filled with contentment everyday.

Here are the reasons why:

1) Smoother skin
2) Skin is much hydrated and no longer feels dry and flaky
3) Much easier when putting on  cosmetics (not sure why but it was terrible putting on make up during those flaky and dry times)
4) No more dull and yellow skin tone on the face, there is a natural glow
5) It is not sticky after applying
6) Besides hydrating, it acts as a toner.

Seeing is believing, and i have always stood by my principle of showing what is real during a sharing/review.
No filter and editting is needed because i want to show the true result instead of a picture filled with filters and edits.
(i know there are plenty of reviews out there that paint fanciful photos using photoshop but that is really not what i want to share with my readers.)

Right, i will indicate if the photos are unedited, as i do not feel good ‘deceiving’ readers. lol, it’s just me.

Pardon the perspiration, pic was after Zumba. I only had my eyeliner on.

So, after a long sharing of how i came to use this product, here are the essential facts of the brand, the product and its origin :

NEWSFLASH_1(pp_w699_h330)

And as if the Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion isnt the best thing that one can ever has,

 here is another piece of Great News!

 Hada Labo Now Introduces New Hada Labo ‘LIGHT’ HYDRATING LOTION

Hada Labo, the brand that brings you the bestselling hydrating lotion from Japan (1 sold every 2 seconds), is now also the bestselling hydrating lotion in Singapore*. In 2013, it introduces a NEW ‘Light’ hydrating lotion, specially formulated for consumers with Oily and Combination Skin.

 The ‘Light’ hydrating lotion formula and texture is lighter and more refreshing.

hb2please note that it is currently available in Watsons only. *Japan Intage and AC Nielsen Singapore 2012.

Like what i always say, i always trusted Asian brands when it comes skincare as i believe they know what Asians really want and need.

New SHA Hydrating Light Lotion. Dual usgae of Lotions!1)Double Cleansing

2)Hydration Boost. Step 1: Sweep upward and outward with soaked cotton wool of Super Hyaluronic Lotion
Step 2: Pour 3drops of Super Hyaluronic Lotion
Step 3: Apply on face area by area
Step 4: Pat on face with whole palm using gentle pressure.
Step 5: Use Super Hyaluronic Hydrating Essence followed by Hyaluronic Hydrating milk.

Also, there is always a myth of people having ‘breakouts’ after they stop using the product.
This is untrue for Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion because there was once or twice that i forgot to apply after cleansing because i was too tired and i only realize it the next day when the skin felt a little drier. But definitely NO breakouts nor major issue.

Having said that, I cant say the same if i stop using the product for more than a week or month because i have never want to stop using it due to its effectiveness in giving me the bouncy and translucent skin that i desire.

Another plus point of the product is definitely its pricing. Priced at $22.90/ bottle of 170ml, i doubt you can find a more affordable product out there that gives you the desirable result as Hada Labo SHA Hydrating Lotion.

And…..the philosophy of Hada Labo also marks the end of my review/ sharing:
