Hadalabo is a very, very popular collection of skincare products available in Japan. I’ve always felt like Juju Cosmetics Aqua Moist Collection is kinda a copycat of the line.
Juju Cosmetics Aqua Moist Hyaluronic Acid Eye Cream recently caught my eye and I strayed from Hadalabo temporarily while I checked out this one.
Here are a few of my thoughts!
This promises to not only replenish moisture but also to help retain it. Considering my eyes are very dry I was all about using an eye cream infused with Hyaluronic Acid which is excellent source for helping to maintain moisture and keep it locked into skin.
The formula promises ingredients such as collagen to help improve the appearance of skin although collagen from what I understand (I’m no chemist so I could be wrong) cannot be absorbed into the skin.
Other ingridents include Hyaluronic Acid as well as glycerin to provide hydration as well as aid in retaining moisture. The texture of this resembles that of a traditional Asian essence but it’s a tad thicker. It’s a clear, milky shade with a soft, creamy glide. It smooths onto even the driest eyes easily and absorbs in a snap. I loved how lightweight it was and how it instantly hydrated my dryness.
On the upside, this wears well under concealer products, etc…so it makes a rather fantastic prep if you’re looking for something to aid in the application of concealer or if your concealer applies badly do to dryness.
On the downside, I didn’t feel like it helped retain moisture and in cases I felt like I needed even more moisture than this provided. As a daily eye cream it’s lightweight, absorbs easily, and provides just the right amount of hydration however as a night cream I wouldn’t strongly recommend it particularly for those with dry eyes since it simply doesn’t have enough moisture in it to replenish eyes and keep them looking youthful.
I’d recommend this for daily use as it’s a perfect prep for concealer and makes a nice, lightweight eye cream. I’d also recommend it for younger, drier eyes however as a night treatment I strongly suggest something with more moisture particularly for those who suffer from drier eyes or who have aging, drier eyes.
I purchased this from Sasa.com.
