Review: Hada Labo Light Peeling Lotion

♫ S.M. THE BALLAD - Breath (TVXQ Max Changmin & f(x) Krystal)

You must be thinking, peeling lotion? How can a lotion have peeling effect?

Well, no worries! The product we know as toner is actually called lotion for most (if not all) Japanese skincare brands. Hada Labo, well known for its lotion series, is now introducing a new product targeted for oily and combination skin type. See your skin brighten up luminosity with Hada Labo’s Mild Peeling Lotion!

The Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion has a unique formulation that not only sloughs away dull skin and impurities, but also stimulates cell renewal. It delicately tightens pores to prevent clogged pores and breakouts, minimizes the appearance of fine lines and improves skin elasticity and firmness. Besides that, it also has moisturizing properties that deeply hydrate the skin, providing a natural, radiant and beautiful matte complexion.

How the gluconic acid works
Gluconic Acid is a main ingredient used in the formulation of this lotion. It is naturally found in fruits and honey. It works as a mild exfoliant to soften and remove accumulated dead skin cells on the skin’s surface so that nutrients can be easily absorbed into the skin. This will also help improve the skin’s hydration resulting in smooth and supple skin.

Handy flip cap packaging
It looks and feels just like water!
Like all Hada Labo lotions, it comes in a plastic bottle with a flip cap. This makes it easy to dispense the product without any wastage. This Hada Labo Mild Peeling Lotion is non-greasy, pH balanced and free from alcohol, colorant, fragrance, preservative, animal derivatives and mineral oil. Even so, I expected it to have at least a faint scent, but I was surprised to discover that it was completely scent-free! It looks and feels just like pure water, lol. It also doesn't have that sticky, 'boing boing' texture reminiscent of the Super Hyaluronic Acid range.

Despite the term 'peeling lotion', it is very mild and suitable for every day use after your cleansing routine. I use it together with the Hada Labo Deep Clean & Pore Refining Face Wash. While I do not see any obviously noticeable results on my skin, I have to say that it it very gentle and does not irritate my skin nor cause any breakouts. :) Even though this product is targeted more towards those with dull and oily skin that is prone to acne, it works fine on my normal combination type skin.

The Hada Labo Light Peeling Lotion (170ml) retails at RM 49.90, and is available at all leading pharmacies outlets nationwide.
