Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser Review

Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser

It’s true Hada Labo is available in the US now and Hada Labo Tokyo Hydrating Facial Cleanser is one of the first products I tried from the brand!

Hada Labo is known for its famous Super Hyaluronic Acid Lotion in Japan and its collection of skincare injected with three kinds of moisturizing Hyaluronic Acid that not only hydrates skin but helps it retain moisture! Hada Labo Tokyo is an extension of the Hada Labo line that is available here in the US now and exclusively at Ulta and Ulta.com.

In 2011 Singapore started to get the Hada Labo Skincare Collection so I was surprised it reached our shores so quickly or even at all for that matter. However, this is new packaging so it could easily be overlooked. Japan markets it as a “single drop can lock up an ocean” meaning it can retain moisture easily. Super Hyaluronic Acid is supposedly able to retain 12 liters of water. According to marketing a single bottle of Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid is sold every four seconds in Japan. It’s understandable why as Super Hyaluronic Acid has been a staple part of my skin regime for a while now and it is truly a miraculous product.

Let’s take a look at the cleanser!

Did I like Lavshuca Shiny Candy Bon Bon Lipstick?

Lavshuca Candy Bon Bon Lipstick Review & Swatches

Lavshuca Candy Bon Bon Lip

Lavshuca Candy Bon Bon Lipstick is a new mini lipstick launched in Japan for Fall 2013. Lavashuca Candy Bon Bon Lipstick kinda feels like a relaunch of Lavshuca Jewel Lipstick to me.

I recently purchased the three main finishes that this collection offers and I thought I’d review each finish separately as each offers a different formula and texture.

Let’s take a look!

Lavshuca Hand Figure Veil Review

Lavshuca Hand Figure Veil

Lavshuca Hand Figure Veil is a new hand and nail cream that launched last Winter during the Holidays. As it is getting cooler now I thought Lavshuca Hand Figure Veil should come out of its drawer and onto my desk to keep my hands pleasantly scented and moisturized.

Take a peek!
