I have really fallen for Japanese facial skincare. I’ve been using Hada Labo Tokyo Skin Plumping Gel Cream and the Anti-aging Hydrating Serum with Super Hyaluronic Acid for about three months now, and I love them both. Not too long ago, I reviewed the moisturizer and the serum. If you haven’t checked them out, here are the links: Gel Cream Moisturizer and Anti-aging Hydrating Serum.
Recently, I had an opportunity to try the Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser.
For at least five years or maybe even longer, I’ve been using Johnson & Johnson’s no-nonsense Purpose, so this was a big deal for me to try a new cleanser. The Hada Labo Tokyo Facial Cleanser is a cream that comes in a tube with the lovely Hada Labo Tokyo cherry blossoms on the front. I love the packaging and design of this entire product line!
A pea-sized amount of the white cream is enough to make a thick, creamy lather. The tube says that it’s “gentle foaming”. I haven’t seen the foam, just a wonderful creamy lather. It feels so hydrating and luxurious on my dry skin that’s even drier now that we’re deep into winter. I love this cream: so soft, so comforting, so moisturizing!
I feel sad that I’m neglecting my good ole’ Purpose, but it’s hard to go back. 😉
Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser is fragrance-free as well as free from alcohol, parabens, sulfates, dyes and mineral oils. Since I use it at least twice a day, I’m glad I don’t have to be concerned about ingredients that I’m not sure about or that I want to actively avoid. And it is made with ingredients that help improve skin:
- Hyaluronic Acid PLUS: Powerful hydrator, merges with skin providing 2 times more hydration than regular HA to effectively restore skin’s natural hydrating levels.
- Hyaloveil-P: Adhesive Hyaluronic Acid designed to adhere to skin, keeping it moist even after rinsing. Finishes the skin with fresh feeling.
- Safe and gentle cleansers derived from natural amino acids.
The tube is 3.5 oz./100g and is priced at $11.99. It’s sold at Ulta and ultra.com, hadalabotokyo.com, drugstore.com, and walgreens.com (It’s not sold at Walgreen’s stores).
Although the cleanser is appropriate for all skin types, I especially recommend this cleanser for women with dry, mature or sensitive skin. And try the serum and gel cream moisturizer while you’re at it! I bought two jars of the Skin Plumping Gel during Ulta’s January “buy one, get one 50% off” Hada Labo Tokyo sale, and I would have bought another cleanser but it was sold out!. This Japanese skincare line is so affordable, it’s almost a shock. Truly luxury and state-of-the-art skincare ingredients at a price almost everyone can afford.
