My thoughts on Hada Labo Gokujyun Lotion
This lotion was one of the first Asian beauty products I ever bought, and I haven’t regretted that for one second. I bought it just because it was such a hyped product so I felt that it just couldn’t go wrong. Before I changed my routine into Korean, and layering products, I had such big problems with my skin.
When first testing it out I felt that it was a little slimy in consistency but hey, snail slime is great so…lets test it out. It’s clear in color and just a little thicker then water.
I am so much in love. This product is so good that it's almost weird. For a person like me, who had so much problems with my skin this is just magic. About a week after I started to use it, my skin was soft and without dry patches or cracks. I am still using it and will not stop, no, never ever. In the summer I actually only used it once a day, and even skipped some days, when my skin felt moisturized. Now the winter is coming in Sweden and I will start using this twice a day again.
This product is a legend. I have always been suffering from dry and dehydrated skin, especially during the winter. I decided to try this legendary toner and was expecting a life changer. I am not disappointed, but I am not converted to a Hada Labo religion either. I don't use it as a toner anymore, as it leaves tacky residue on my skin and makes absorption of other products difficult. I use it to mix with my all time favourites face oils to make a very nice moisturizing serum. And in this role it's perfect. But other then that....it's quite average toner with no other anti-ageing benefits.
This lotion is almost watery in texture and my skin sucks it up almost immediately. The most fun part about this product is applying it in the morning. I wait a couple of minutes and BAM eye bags gone. Skin feels definitely hydrated afterwards, and super soft.
The product also lasts forever - bought it (HOLY COW I just checked it) in JANUARY for 9,45€ and I still have over a third of the bottle left (in September)! So repurchasing
This toner truly does its job wonderfully. I was using the Ordinary's Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 at first, but I didn't feel like it was doing much, and since I needed a new toner... I'm so happy I decided to buy this one!
I use it every morning and night by patting it in and I've noticed my skin has become less dry. It also feels more bouncy!
