My Thoughts on Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Lotion! Am I Using It Again?
I’m ready for another moisturizing product in my routine! I feel like I’ve been adding so many skin care products into my routine once again, lol. But good news! No breakouts this time from them. And I enjoy using them. That’s all that matters, right? hehe.
Here I have Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Lotion. I’ve been meaning to add this lotion back in for so long. I stopped using it when I was having major skin issues. I had to eliminate some products and this was one of them. Finally, it’s time to bring it back into my skin care routine! 🙌🏻
More about this product…
This lotion is infused with seven kinds of hyaluronic acids. It comes in a rich texture that provides instant and long-lasting hydration. It doesn’t contain any fragrances, colorants, essential oils, alcohol, and parabens. Packaging is eco-friendly too. As always, I had to dig into the ingredients. So what are the seven kinds of hyaluronic acids in this product that it mentions??
First off, I would like to mention that the first couple of ingredients in this lotion includes glycerin and hydroxyethyl urea. Hydroxyethyl urea is a very good moisturizer and humectant. It moisturizes the skin by helping the skin cling onto water. It helps to maintain normal moisture balance in the skin. Here’s another product that I use that contains this ingredient. It’s been a very moisturizing product so far! So don’t forget to check it out! Now on to the hyaluronic acids. What are the seven hyaluronic acids? They are…
Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate, Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer, Lactococcus/Hyaluronic Acid Ferment, Hydrolyzed Sodium Hyaluronate
Did it work to moisturize my skin?
I’ve been using this lotion for about nearly 2 weeks. So, not too long. But I think that’s a good amount of time to share my thoughts on my experience with this product. If you look at the name of the product, it says it’s a lotion. When the product is dispensed from the bottle, it’s more of a gel than a lotion. The product feels a little bit sticky and gel-like. When applied to the skin, it feels a little jelly and sticky, but it absorbs into the skin well. I didn’t have any problems with application. This lotion left my skin feeling super moisturized without feeling heavy or greasy. My skin loved it even though I’m oily. It felt lightweight on the skin, and it didn’t make me look more oily, but it gave my complexion this dewy and nice glowy appearance to it. It works great when my skin feels a little bit more sensitive than usual too. Even though this product feels hydrating on the skin, I didn’t think it kept my skin hydrated for long. But I think that’s OK. It’s more of a lightweight gel moisturizer than a rich, heavy, nourishing moisturizer. I think it helped to alleviate some dry skin that’s chapped. But just not on it’s own. I use it in combination of other hydrating skin care products to keep my skin hydrated throughout the day. Overall, I think it’s a good gel moisturizer that didn’t let me down. I also didn’t get breakouts from it. Surprisingly, because at some point I thought it did. Interesting! It looks like I have another moisturizing product in my routine! It’s working for me! 👍🏻
