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!
I do like this lotion, though it functions more as a toner for me these days. It's very hydrating and sinks into the skin without leaving any tackiness. It isn't the most hydrating thing however because it sinks in so quickly. I've found other products in the Hada Labo line that would provide a bit more moisture, so I use this mainly for diy sheet mask which is awesome! I'd say normal to oily skin would enjoy this product, those with dry skin might want a little more.
