Hada Labo Review of the Lotion Super Hydrator

This is a Hada Labo review of the Hada Labo Tokyo Lotion Super Hydrator. The Lotion Super Hydrator is equivalent to the Hada Labo Gokujyun Lotion but reformulated for the UK.

Hada Labo Review UK, Hada Labo Tokyo

Hada Labo is Japan’s best selling skin care line. They have over sixty different products and are the first skincare line from Japan to launch in the United States.

I am pretty excited that Hada Labo UK has now launched officially! The company had to reformulate in order to meet EU regulations so the new product reformulated for the EU is called “Hada Labo Tokyo” whereas the original packaging was just “Hada Labo”.

Hada Labo is known for containing different molecule sizes of hyaluronic acid in their lotion which makes your skin well hydrated.

The Hada Labo Toyko Super Hydrator is the UK Equivalent of the Japanese Skincare Sensation Hada Labo Gokujyun.

What is Super Hyaluronic Acid?

All Hada Labo products contain a “super hyaluronic acid” lotion which is unique to their range.

Their “super hyaluronic acid” contains three different molecule sizes of hyaluronic acid designed to rehydrate your skin at multiple levels.

Hyaluronic acid holds over a thousand times its weight in water so these three different molecule sizes make sure as much moisture as possible is retained in your skin.

Due to their effectiveness at transforming the skin, Hada Labo products have ended up gaining a cult following.

The Hada Labo Red Line & the White Line

The Hada Labo UK product range is split into two colours, the red line and the white line.

The white line is for hydration, plumping, keeping your acid mantle intact and generally keeping your skin functioning healthily.

The products in the red line are more for anti-aging and contain additional ingredients such as retinol (in the form of retinyl palmitate) and collagen.

The red line is aimed at people aged 34 or above (or people who have particularly dry skin), and the white line is aimed at anyone under 34.

My Hada Labo Review

The product the range is most famous for is their Super Hydrator lotion which is the one I have tested out. Although the company call it a “lotion” I have heard it also described as a toner. Personally I think it is a serum. I chose this product to test out since it is the most famous, and the line I chose was the red line.

This product gives you a glow, and makes your skin bouncier and more elastic. It makes you wake up looking fresher than the night before. I was pleased to see that the bottle comes with a pump. The original product was packaged in a bottle with no pump that you had to pour out.

The product itself is very runny and I found the best way to apply it was to put 2-3 pumps onto your hands, rub your hands together and then pat the product onto your face. I have seen some people use cotton wool and apply the product like a toner but I found patting it in with my hands works effectively. The product absorbed very quickly into my skin and provided a good base for other products to be applied over the top. It also dries matte and does not leave a shiny finish. You can see in the picture below the product is almost like water.

I have been using this product for a couple of months now and feel it has made a noticeable difference to my skin. It is also very affordable and lasts a long time. I bought the product two months ago, have been using it regularly and still have more than half a bottle left.

The Hado Labo UK Range

The Hada Labo UK range also produce an eye cream and day and night creams. All of the products in the range are very affordable and can be purchased for under £20. You could in fact buy a full routine from this range for less than £50. It is available to buy on Amazon (both in the UK and United States).

The product I tested out was the OFFICIAL HADA LABO TOKYO ANTI-AGING SUPER HYDRATOR LOTION in the red line.
