Hada Labo Whitening Water Gel

I live in Malaysia. There is more direct sunlight hitting me than anywhere else, which is why brightening products are always welcome. Uneven skin tone, begone!

Name: Hada Labo Whitening Water Gel
Price: RM 69.90 for 50 g
Made in: China

Infused with 4 types of Hyaluronic Acid and multiple intensive brightening ingredients, the Hada Labo Whitening Water Gel promises a luminous, fair and translucent skin through 3 brightening actions:

Vitamin C rebalances uneven skin, leaving skin perfectly luminous and translucent with natural radiance.

Anti-dark spots
Vitamin B3 boosts radiance and at the same time enhances skin fairness.

Carnosine, an anti-ageing substance, reawakens dull skin and improves yellowish skin tone for a more luminous and radiant complexion.

It has a light and refreshing gel texture that sinks effortlessly into the skin. There was nothing to see/feel in terms of residue after 30 seconds of patting, but no signs of dryness creeping in showed that it does some very effective hydrating. Good for people who don’t want a heavy cream – perhaps their skin is oily or they live in a humid tropical climate *clears throat*

To achieve a double brightening effect, pair it together with the newly improved Hada Labo Whitening Essence (RM 74 for 30 g) that contains high purity Arbutin to reduce redness and dark spots, resulting in brighter skin in 4 short weeks.

The blue coloured gel is joy to apply and powerful enough to use as a moisturiser (for me, at least). It isn't too expensive, especially if you find it on offer at any of the leading pharmacies.
