Face lotions can hydrate the skin and offer more benefits too!
Face lotions, in general, are great for many skin types, as their key goal is to nourish the skin. This is why they are a must in a classic Japanese beauty routine, that’s known to deliver mochi-mochi skin—named after the beloved dessert famous for its baby-soft, bouncy, velvety matte texture. Used after cleansing, face lotions primarily soften and hydrate the skin, and some even come with more benefits.
When it comes to face lotions, the Japanese trust the skincare brand Hada Labo that sells out a bottle every five seconds. It offers two lines in the Philippines: Hada Labo Gokujyun Hydrating Lotion and Hada Labo Shirojyun Premium Whitening Lotion. While both promise hydration as they contain good-for-the-skin and water-retaining hyaluronic acid, each has a specific purpose that can help you fulfill your skin needs.
Gokujyun Hydrating Lotion is the brand’s OG bestselling lotion that’s perfect for daily use, especially if you have dry or normal skin. Its updated version Gokujyun Hydrating Lotion Rich has the power of five types of hyaluronic acid (the previous has 4) to introduce high function moisturizing technology to the skin. Hyaluronic acid, high molecular hyaluronic acid, acetylated hyaluronic acid, and nano hyaluronic acid all deeply hydrate the skin, replenish optimum moisture, create a moisture-locking shield to prevent moisture loss, and enhance absorption of other skin-care ingredients. The addition of the world’s first fermented hyaluronic acid in this face lotion significantly improves its barrier function even more.
The line also has Hada Labo Gokujyun Hydrating Light Lotion that has the same formula as the former, just tweaked a bit for oily or combination skin with its light, non-greasy texture.
The cult fave Japanese skincare brand also offers Hada Labo Shirojyun Premium Whitening Lotion that’ll suit you best if you who have dull, tired skin. Apart from hyaluronic acid, it also contains brightening ingredients to give you that crystal bright glow. This face lotion contains two types of hyaluronic acid that form a layer of barrier on your skin’s surface to prevent moisture loss and enhance the absorption of other skincare ingredients, all while penetrating deeply into your skin to provide moisture into the inner skin layers.
The Shirojyun Premium Whitening Lotion is infused with vitamins C and E that are known for soothing and relieving discomfort after sun exposure. Vitamin C is also known as popular skin brightening ingredient for effectively fading dark spots, reducing redness and dullness, and evening out the skin tone. Vitamin E, on the other hand, can help protect your skin from discoloration and minimize the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Whichever face lotion fits your skin, use it twice a day and apply the product the Hada Labo way—by patting it onto the skin using your palm—for best results.
