I have to admit it. In my quest for really good skincare products that don't cost the earth, I hadn't happened upon Hada Labo products. The Japanese brand isn't so widely known across here, but that may well change soon.
All Hada Labo products are fragrance free so are suitable for most skin types. Fragrance is the main cause of adverse skin reactions.
I was sent two of their products to test, a pot of the Repair Night Cream, which contains four different kinds of Hyaluronic Acid and the Eye and Mouth Area Cream. They are both super light and a pleasure to use. All of their products are formulated specifically to replenish dry skin by promoting moisture retention and are suitable for every age group.
Hada Labo isn't Japan's number one skincare brand for nothing. Oh and in case you're interested, the brand’s name is inspired by its roots in creating original formulas: in Japanese, Hada means skin and Labo stands for laboratory. I understand that the company were not allowed to sell the original formula here in the UK because of EU regulations, however now that we are no longer part of the EU, that may change. Some users felt that these 'amended' versions are not up to the original Japanese equivalents. You can order the Japanese products here but it's worth mentioning that the packaging is in Japanese.
Available at Superdrug and Amazon.
