The main feature of this lotion is that it contains 5 kinds of hyaluronic acid. As we all know, hyaluronic acid has the main function of hydrating! Then there are 5 kinds of hyaluronic acid in it. How are they different?
The first is the most conventional hyaluronic acid, Sodium Hyaluronate (hyaluronic acid), it cannot be penetrated deeper into the skin because of its larger molecule size. It can only stay on the skin surface. Its main effect is to help moisturize the surface layer of the skin and form a barrier on the skin to prevent water loss.
The second type, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate (super hyaluronic acid), we call it super hyaluronic acid. It is a modified version of hyaluronic acid. Its moisturizing effect is longer and better than the first type of hyaluronic acid.
The third type is Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid (nano hyaluronic acid), which is basically a hyaluronic acid that is cut into small pieces. It has smaller molecule size and can reach the inner layer of the skin more than the previous two types of hyaluronic acid. And it also has the ability to repair the skin.
The fourth type is Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate (Absorbent Hyaluronic acid), which is another form of hyaluronic acid, which is characterized by being very adhesive to the skin and not easily rinsed off. This is why it is also called absorbent hyaluronic acid. This hyaluronic acid is also often used in hair conditioner, because the adhesion will be stronger, so this is why after using the conditioner, the hair will have a slippery feel.
The last one is Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer (3D Hyaluronic acid). Firstly, I will explain to you what crosspolymer is. You can imagine that a crosspolymer is like a fishing net. Hyaluronic acid is tied to these fishing nets, so it will not be lost so easily. This form of hyaluronic acid is characterized by its strong ability to lock water.
In fact, not only hyaluronic acid, this lotion has added other humectant such as glycerin, hydroxyethyl urea and so on.
In addition, it has a polysaccharide molecule extracted from seaweed. The scientific name of this seaweed is Aphanothece sacrum. Sacrum has a divine meaning. And why this seaweed is sacred is because it can only grow in clear spring water and in the slow water flow, so it is very precious. Sacran can form a barrier on our skin, it can also has anti-inflammatory effect, and it has a stronger ability to retain hydration than hyaluronic acid
So this product, it really adds a lot of moisturizing and hydrating ingredients. If your skin is very very dry and you have tried a lot of moisturizers and it doesn’t work, you can try this one! This should be the most moisturizing product on the planet.
For oily skin, I would suggest you to use another lotion from this brand which is light hydrating lotion, you don’t need to use this premium one. Its texture is relatively watery, the price is cheaper, and it is easier to absorb, and it feels refreshed after use.
As for sensitive skin, this lotion is fine for you too! Because in this product, there are no ingredients that can irritate the skin.
Then, this product is labelled as alcohol-free, fragrance-free, colorant-free, and mineral oil-free. However, in fact, in the ingredient list I found that it contains phenoxyethanol, which is actually an alcohol. So I also checked with Hada Labo about this matter, but I haven’t got their reply yet. Phenoxyethanol is a scented alcohol that gives the product a scent and also acts as a preservative.
In addition, there is another ingredient that many people do not like, which is paraben. Many has the criteria of free of paraben when buying skin care products. What is paraben, and why so many people don’t like it? Paraben is a preservative that is added to the product to prevent the growth of bacteria and mold. Previously, some study said that paraben is closely related to breast cancer. Although this has not been proven, it has caused panic among many people. So if you are anti-paraben, this lotion should not appear on your shopping list.
Now let ’s take a look at the texture of this lotion. It is relatively thick, a bit like an essence. I usually apply this before makeup, so makeup looks more natural. Because it has a thick texture, it needs to be massaged for a long time for it to absorb.
In addition to acting as a primer, its product leaflet also suggests that it can be used as an eye mask, just take a cotton pad, moisten it, and apply it around the eyes for 5-10 minutes.
Or you can put the lotion in the refrigerator for a while before using it, and then use it, so that it can soothe the skin and shrink the pores.
Then again, you can apply lotion to dry areas other than your face, such as elbow, knees, and heels. Usually for this step, I will do it after I finish my face, as I still have some residues on my hands, and then apply it on my hands and feet, don’t waste it!
So, basically this hydrating lotion is highly recommended. I usually use it as a makeup primer! Because previously, my makeup was very unnatural. After I applied the liquid foundation, it would dry out and peel off. After trying a lot of makeup primer still did not improve. Until I found this, the strongest hydrating lotion on the ground, my makeup became very natural, and it has the effect of achieving nude makeup, just like Korean makeup, bright and smooth!
