REVIEW Hada Labo Ultimate Moisturizing Gokujyun Face Wash

by - April 10, 2020

Recently, I’m trying to finish the exfoliating products that I have because the number is considered a lot since I don’t use it every day. Unfortunately, my current facial wash contains AHA and kinda dries out my skin, so I was thinking to buy a new one. I’m looking for a facial wash that is moisturising so it balances with my exfoliating activity. After long thinking, I decided to buy Hada Labo. I’ve tried it before, actually. I bought the trial set that contains the facial wash, toner, and moisturiser. I didn’t use the facial wash until months later, and I threw it away after using it for a few times because it had a weird scent, I thought the product had gone bad. This time I’m going to use it again and review it properly.

IDR20,500 for 50g. Available in 100g too.

P a c k a g i n g
A white squeeze tube.

S c e n t
This facial wash doesn’t contain perfume, that’s why it has a weird and unpleasant scent. I think the weird scent is strong enough to make me feel uncomfortable. Thankfully, the scent will be gone once you wash it off.

T e x t u r e
The paste is quite dense and it makes thick bubbles after you whip it. It feels nice and soft on the skin, though.

Has the same pH level as skin, the level of irritation is low • I haven’t done the test for the pH level, but yes it doesn’t irritate my skin
Doesn't use fragrances, colouring agents, mineral oil and ethanol

T h o u g h t s
I think this facial wash is gentle enough and it doesn’t make the skin feel dry and tight afterwards. I don’t experience any form of irritation or any sign of breaking out. I think it’s because my skin is in normal condition now so it’s easier to ‘get along’ with a product. Back then, when my skin was dehydrated, it was easier to spot if a ‘low irritation’ claim is false or not since my skin was a lot more sensitive. Anyway, the cleaning power of this product is good even though it’s a gentle cleanser (most gentle facial washes I know often feel like as if they’re not clean enough). There’s nothing special about this product, but it’s not a bad one either. There’s nothing much to say about a facial wash anyway, so I’ll leave this review short as it is. Hehe.

S u i t a b l e  f o r
I think this product suits all skin type with many skin concerns since the ingredients used is pretty simple, it doesn’t contain perfume, artificial colourant, and ethanol. But, if you avoid paraben and/or have fungal acne, maybe you should check out the ingredients first.

P r o s
+ suitable for every skin type
+ simple ingredients
+ affordable

C o n s
