Review: Hada Labo Gokujyun Ultimate Moisturizing Milk

by - Thursday, August 22, 2013


This product hit Indonesia on last September 2012 and you know what? Almost every Indonesian beauty bloggers immediately got crazy over it. Well, to be honest, I wasn't among them until early 2013. Simply because I was using another brand and I thought it would be expensive (since they were imported, which later I realized, they were actually not. Indonesia's Hada Labo is manufactured in Indonesia but the original ingredients are imported from Japan) while the most embarrassing point is I didn't particularly understand about hyaluronic acid, back then.

Reviews have been everywhere up until today and I treated myself to read each of them. Some are good, some are freaking scary. Me, at first, desperately endured my desire to own one until finally I had spent my daily moisturizer and decided to search for a new one.

So after using 6 months, still counting. I'm ready to share my opinion.

I have combination skin type to begin with, just for your reference. Here, due to the raising heat in my city, my face becomes very dry and it's difficult (+ annoying) lately to apply make-up base evenly. That's why I desperately need a good moisturizer, actually I prefer for those that also have whitening agent, but again, my kind of sensitive skin doesn't allow me to choose whatever things I want. Just so you know I had ended up with so many products which succeeded blocking my pores and causing pimples (+ zits).


At first, I couldn't distinguish between moisturizing milk and lotion variant, but finally ended to choose this. And these are the reason why:
1) High moisturizing milk.
2) Replenishes & locks in moisture for complete hydration
3) Maintain elasticity and smooth-healthy skin
4) For supple and soft skn
5) fragrance and colorant free.

Sounds promising just how you look at it.


Now let's talk about the Hyaluronic Acid (Hyaluronan) that they proud of. So, in fact this hyaluronan actually plays an important role for treating dry and scaly skin, induce tissue healing, wound-healing application.

Well, how come it answered exactly what I need? They claim:
1) To be able double moisture skin with their improved hyaluronic acid (AcHA)
2) Their nano-size hyaluronic acid can be absorbed quickly and moisture skin longer
3) 1 gr hyaluronic acid may block 6 L of water
4) It matches human skin pH, with low irritation risk
5) Light texture

For complete ingredients:
Water, Hydrogenated Poly (C6-12 Olefin), Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, PPG-10 Methyl Glucose Ether, PEG-20 Sorbitan Isostearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Dimethicone, Stearyl Alcohol, Carbomer, Methylparaben, Behenyl Alcohol, Triethanolamine, Sodium Hyaluronate, Propylparaben, Phytostearyl/Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate, Disodium EDTA, Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate.


The advertorial said 'one drop for all' and it's absolutely true. You just need to take out a single drop for your entire face and neck, wait for about 3-6 minutes for your skin to absorb before applying another make-up (layer). I find my BB Cream/foundation/base can be applied easier and evenly.

Caution: don't use more than a single drop, or you will find the liquid would not be absorbed quickly and as a result, leaving your face look so oily. And please be patient to wait before applying another layer.


This liquid really has light texture and drips easily. Once you apply on your face, it doesn't have any color or even cover anything. No spf at all so don't forget to add your sunblock for daily activities. For additional, I don't use other Hada Labo after this milk, I will then apply my BB Cream/Foundation then finish it with powder.

Magically, it turned out to be the best moisturizer I've ever used so far. One bottle can last for more than 6 months eventhough I use it every single day. Not even break-out so far. My face becomes less dry and oily at the same time. 

The price is quiet affordable around ~IDR 30,000 (US$ 3).

So what's your current moisturizer? Mind to share? Have you tried Hada Labo variant?
