Review: Rohto Hadalabo Gokujun hyaluronic acid Eki

Today is the final in my series of “3 most important things for skin care”! It is, of course, moisturizing!

It seems that East Asians have different concepts when it comes to moisturizing. I put on a watery liquid before putting on a cream. In English, this liquid is often referred to as “toner” but in my mind, that is more like witch hazel. Rose water seems to be a bit more similar. In this review, I’ll call it “lotion” just out of convenience.

A while ago, it started to become popular to do cotton masks with your lotion. More about that soon!

Since I use so much lotion everyday, I need to find one that is affordable, yet works well to moisturize my skin!
What it does: (From Rohto’s website) Super Hyaluronic acid attracts twice as much moisture as regular hyaluronic acid. Moisturizes your skin completely, and keeps your skin moisturized.
(The picture is of the refill in “light”. )

Price: 1260 JPY (around $13) for 170 ml, or 1050 JPY for 150 ml (refill)
I have personally never bought this for this price. The refill can be found for 690 JPY at drug stores. You shouldn’t be paying more than 800 JPY!

Review: Like I said, it is cheap and keeps my skin moisturized completely. The hyaluronic acid works great. The “regular” type tends to be a bit sticky for me and I use the “light” type in the warmer months.

Will I buy it again? Definitely!!!
