HadaLabo is an extremely popular skincare collection in Japan. The products are well known for containing hyaluronic acid which is an excellent ingredient for hydrating skin as well as allowing your skin to retain more moisture.
I’m not sure how effective it is having such an ingredient in your cleanser but the HadaLabo Gokujyun Super Hyaluronic Makeup Remover is one of my favorite makeup removers.
This is a fragrance free, mineral oil free gel-like cleanser that works much like a cleansing oil would.
Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Makeup Remover contains super hyaluronic acid according to the brand which serves to moisturize the skin as well as aid it in retaining that moisture. The ingredient does need a chance to absorb into your skin in order to have the best benefits in my opinion so not sure how useful it is in a cleanser when you’re basically washing it away.
On the upside it is quite a hydrating cleanser that doesn’t strip skin or make it tight after use. It’s a thicker gel-like consistency that isn’t greasy or oily. You use it in a similar fashion as a traditional cleansing oil by simply massaging it on a dry face full of makeup and adding a touch of water to emulsify and finally proceeding to rinse. It doesn’t turn milky or emulsify in the same fashion as a cleansing oil so the touch of water you use will just break the gel apart and allow it to rinse easier off in the end.
It does very well getting off my BB Cream, left over mascara that my oil based eye makeup remover might have left behind, and just generally getting my skin squeaky clean.
I like it because its so moisturizing and my drier skin can use all the help it can get. It’s a nice a pick for dry skin that needs a touch more moisture during a cleanse since so many cleansers are guilty of drying out dry skin even more.
