Hada Labo Whitening Cooling Gel Lotion

I am always excited to see what Hada Labo has up their sleeves! And with a name like Whitening Cooling Gel Lotion, I knew that they were once again on the right track, haha!

Name: Hada Labo 肌ラボ Whitening Cooling Gel Lotion 白潤 冷感ヒアルロンゼリー
Price: RM 63.50 for 200 ml
@cosme rating: 4.4
Made in: Japan

This 5-in-1 gel (lotion, essence, emulsion, astringent and mask) is enhanced with two types of Hyaluronic Acid for deep hydration, Vitamin C to brighten skintone and Witch Hazel to refine pores. To sum it all up, it is the perfect hassle free, all-in-one whitening gel that not only brightens the skin but also leaves the skin smooth, supple and hydrated.

It feels really comfortable and almost weightless. No stickiness, no greasiness, the gel just sinks straight in. But not without ensuring a lovely smooth surface is left behind. It is extremely handy to have around in the mornings especially when I don't have the time (no thanks to the snooze button on my phone) to whack on lots of layers.

I usually follow up with a hydrating sunscreen, also from Hada Labo (review here). Applying it in the evening calls for a moisturiser or perhaps an oil if I need an extra boost of nutrition. I tailor it to my needs for the moment; the possibilities are endless! That is not to say that it can't be used alone, but I won't recommend it because my skin feels taut when it is the only item I have on.

The gel jolts me awake when I apply it in the morning. During other times, it feels much more pleasant seeing as by then I can fully appreciate its refreshing qualities. Refrigerate it extra ooomph! Be warned though because this means the cooling sensation is induced by Menthol and Peppermint Oil, and these ingredients are known to cause irritation to the skin.

The Hada Labo Whitening Cooling Gel Lotion is available exclusively at all Watsons stores nationwide.

Neat to see such an all-in-one type product! It sounds great, but I'm leery of the menthol and peppermint.
