Hada Labo is the first skincare line that I purchased when I started my Asian Beauty (AB) journey. At that time, I was looking for something that moisturizes and hydrates, and Hada Labo instantly pops up as they are well-known for their Super Hyaluronic Acid. I ended up buying their cleanser, their famous hydrating lotion, a moisturizer and also this UV White Gel.
Looking for a heavy moisturizer to combat my dehydrated skin and being totally in love with Hada Labo products (at the time; not so much nowadays – it’s a pretty long story…), I stumbled across this Koi-Gokujyun Perfect Gel during my usual skincare research.
Skimming through the ingredients list and finding none of my personal triggers (mainly alcohol, alcohol denat. and mineral oil), and boasting some ingredient superstars, I was immediately looking forward to trying it out.
I got this product from a friend and this “lotion” is actually a toner with a thicker consistency. It has 3 different types of hyaluronic acid in it, to penetrate into the skin and keep skin moisturized and hydrated. Hyaluronic acid is a humectant, and using this before other moisturizing products seems to help those products “to sink in” better on your skin, allowing you to get more of the moisture and beneficial effect from other products as well.
