HadaLabo Gokujyun Paper Mask Review

HadaLabo Gokujyun Paper Mask 2

HadaLabo is an extremely popular collection of skincare produced by Japanese brand, Rohto. One of the things that makes the brand so popular is that promise that their “super” Hyaluronic Acid can hold and retain moisture in the skin than regular Hyaluronic Acid.

Hyaluronic Acid is hugely popular at the moment in most all skincare products and heck even some makeup items. It really does help skin to retain moisture while hydrating it and keeping it soft.

Needless to say HadaLabo has captured all that is great about Hyaluronic Acid and placed it in some very effective skincare products.

They recently introduced a few new concealers and revised formulas of concealers to their catalog, well, perhaps not that recently as its been several months since I purchased some of the new items.

Let’s take a look at the KATE Stick Concealer.

Shu Uemura White Efficient UV Under Base Brightening Mousse

Ok fan girls, life as we knew it was potentially over when Mitchell was staked by George. But to add salt to our open wounds we lost George and Nina.

Oh my god. Was Tobey trying to reinvent the wheel? That was 75% of the show.

But I have to admit after catching up on the latest eppy of Being Human I am absolutely thrilled with Hal. And I’ve always loved Tom but introducing Hal to the mix is sheer genius. You have Tom, a dumb but lovable lycan and you have Hal, an aristocratic elder vampire with a bad case of OCD. This is a match made in heaven.

What do you think so far? I love this new family. I’m not even missing Mitchell and George GASP! As EW.com pointed out so elegantly, the hole in my heart has closed.
