Hada Labo Gokujyun Moisture Milk is product I get asked about more than Hadalabo Gokujyn Hyaluronic Acid Lotion. That’s saying something considering how incredibly popular the lotion is.
I think people are just confused why they might need the milk when they already use the lotion or what order should you use the products in, etc…
Here’s a look!
Hadalabo Gokujyn Hyaluronic Acid Lotion is one of Japan’s most popular skin care products. Apparently one bottle is sold every 2 seconds in Asia! I’ve been using it for quite a long time myself and I love what it does for my drier skin it truly is a miracle in a bottle.
Recently Hada Labo Tokyo as well as the original Hadalabo Skincare Collection has become available in the US through US retailers like drugstore.com. This is a cause for great celebration. Mind you it wasn’t that hard of a product to come across but waiting for your favorite skincare to arrive via airmail can sometimes prove irritating. Being able to pick up the new collection in stores like Ulta sure does make life easier.
Like the lotion HadaLabo Gokujyun Moisture Milk is a liquid. Some folks get terribly confused about the differences between the two products. Are they the same but in a different formulation? Do you use them together? In what order if so? Are just some of the questions I get about the milk.
Technically Hadalabo created the products to be used together so the milk is actually a product you’ll use AFTER the liquid. The milk actually helps to provide more moisture and also aids in sealing in the moisture that the lotion provided. Of course, you can absolutely skip the milk and just use the lotion! No one says you need both and in some cases using both is overkill! But during the winter months especially during colder weather my skin appreciates the use of both the lotion and the milk.
This is formulated as a thick gel-like essence. It kinda feels like watered down glue to me and also has a very sticky texture. You’ll want to wait a few moments after using the lotion before applying this. Allow the lotion to fully absorb and follow up by applying the milk to your face. Use about a dime’s size and gently press the palms of your hands to your face and lightly massage into place. See the video below for the best application method. At first you’ll feel very sticky and your hands will stick to your face. But continue on for several minutes until all of the milk has fully absorbed. After your skin will feel a bit sticky but allow a few moments for the product to set and proceed to follow up with serum and moisturizer.
With daily use this will keep your skin firm, very hydrated, and smooth especially when using in conjunction with the lotion. I skip the milk in the Summer and use the lotion only but in the Winter I use the lotion, essence, and the milk for the extra moisture all three provide!
This formula isn’t limited to drier skin as anyone can use it but drier skin will benefit from it most.
If you have dry skin issues that need addressing I do highly suggest Hadalabo to keep skin moisture and glowing!
