We put Hada Labo’s Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion to the test, to see if it can maximise our skincare regimen.
Sometimes, when products aren’t doing what they’re supposed to, we add more and more, in the hopes of getting results. Obviously, if products cannot penetrate the skin, heaping on additional product isn’t going to help.
The solution is simple – prep your skin the right way so that the effectiveness of any serums, moisturisers or masks you use afterwards are enhanced. Skin that hasn’t been prepared doesn’t allow for these products to properly penetrate the skin, leaving you with less than satisfied results and with a whole lot of product gone to waste.

We all know that hydration is the first step towards having younger skin because it plumps your facial epidermis and diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles. While moisturisers are formulated to seal moisture into the skin, hydrating products are designed to increase the water content of the skin. This is typically achieved by utilising the powers of humectants like glycerin or hyaluronic acid.
Hada Labo believes that hydration is the foundation to healthy, beautiful skin. That’s why their range of skin care products provide intense hydration by harnessing the water-binding powers of 4 types of Hyaluronic acid. It’s so effective that beauty lovers have ranked the Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion as number one in Japan for nine consecutive years.
Our tester, 30-year-old Raine, tried the product for five days and found that because the lotion helps to prep skin for better absorption of any skincare products she used after, it got rid of the dry, flaky spots on her face and made her complexion look dewy – a look that she loves. Here’s why:
When used after washing, Raine found that Hada Labo’s Hydrating Lotion served as the perfect foundation to her skincare routine. She just patted it on using her hands, and found that her moisturiser would sink in a lot faster afterwards.
Hado Labo’s lightweight formula uses 4 types of Hyaluronic acid (HA) to deeply hydrate all layers of the skin so you’ll never feel parched throughout the day. Read on to find out the different types of HA used in a bottle of lotion!
Forms a layer of moisture retaining barrier to protect skin from moisture loss. It covers the Medium-size HA firmly to effectively provide skin with a powerful double layer moisture-locking shield to lock in moisture on skin.
A new generation of HA, with high water retention ability, that stays on skin surface to hold moisture and maintain long lasting hydration.
With two times the moisture retention capacity of HA, it is able to mimic the skin’s natural moisturising ability and combine with Medium-size HA to lock in and retain a large volume of moisture inside the skin for super hydration.
With a fine molecule size of 1/20 that of regular HA, it easily penetrates and infuses moisture deep into skin to prepare skin for enhanced skin care ingredients absorption.
