I used to believe that high-quality cosmetics have to be expensive. I did often buy cheap wholesale shampoos, hand creams, or mascaras at drugstores, but I had never bought basic skincare products such as lotions, serums, or face creams there before. Then I met Hada Labo Gokujyn Premium Lotion and I noticed I was completely wrong.
Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Lotion
The First Impression
I became interested in Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Lotion as famous dermatologists, beauticians, or skincare experts in Japan were talking about it on media. I came across a sample of it and tried on my hand at a drugstore counter. Firstly, I felt it was a bit too sticky, so I left the counter. Then after a minute or so, that stickiness has totally gone and I felt my hands were so soft as baby’s skin. I was like “Wow!” but I went back home, because, as I said, I was sceptical about budget cosmetics. After a couple of hours at home, my hands are still so soft and surprisingly moisturised, and I found myself back at the drugstore with a bottle of Hada Labo lotion in my hand.
The Feel and the Usage
Since then, I’ve been using Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Lotion and I’m quite satisfied with it as my skin has never been dry and looks plumper. (For reference, my skin type is combination, prone to dehydration and breakouts on my forehead.) I use it after cleansing my face, take an appropriate amount onto the palm of my hand and gently press it into the skin. It has a syrup like consistency so, a sticky feeling remains at first, but soon it goes away after it is fully absorbed. It glides on the skin easily and sinks in fast. The brand says it’s a toner, but it’s more like a toner and a serum in one. It’s watery like a toner and viscous like a serum. It layers well, so you can apply your targeted serums, moisturisers, creams or whatever you like after that.
High-Quality Budget Cosmetics: Why is that possible?
The original company of RHOTO Pharmaceutical Co,. Ltd. founded in 1899, RHOTO has been renowned for eye drops for a long time in Japan. The researchers there have been researching hyaluronic acid, which is known to promote corneal wound healing. They applied their knowledge to study new types of hyaluronic acid good for skin. In other words, they didn’t have to start from scratch. This, I guess, made it possible to offer such a high-quality product for an affordable price.
The Brand Features
Gokujun contains seven different types of hyaluronic acid and focuses on what is good for skin hydration. It is fragrance-free, colourant-free, oil-free, and paraben-free. The brand has stripped away as much of the unnecessary as possible, including the container. It comes in the plastic bottle, a kind of cheap-looking, compared to high brand products in fancy glass bottles. But I think plastic bottles are more handy and less risky to carry around. It also provides an eco-friendly refill package, partly using biomass as a raw material. Buying refills, we can reduce waste.
Now is the Time!
Summer has come! It’s the season you need to hydrate inside and outside. It’s the prime season for outdoor activities. Enjoy your summer but don’t forget to take care of your skin! After the exposure to the sun, what you have to do is not only to drink plenty of water but to hydrate your skin externally. UV rays damage the skin’s barrier function, which protects the skin from external stimuli and moisture loss, then the skin becomes increasingly dry and sensitive, leading to a vicious cycle of dryness, inflammation, acne and so on. Now is the time to seriously start hydrating your skin!
Experience the Gorgeous Feel and Be Convinced!
Hada Labo Gokujyun Premium Lotion is a high-quality cosmetic product in a budget friendly price. You won’t find such a luxury-feeling lotion (except for the packaging!) in this price range anywhere else. Only a company like RHOTO Pharmaceutical can make it possible. The high brand image does imply that it has something special and good, I admit, but what is important is the real efficacy. Once you use it, you will know what I mean. It is not one of the highest-priced cosmetics which we need the courage to jump off the cliff. Why don’t you try and see how it will work on your skin?
