A lot of people have been waiting for this review and here it is, FINALLY! Today I'm going to review the Hadalabo Gokjyun face wash. I didn't like the JUJU Cosmetics Aquamoist face wash which I reviewed before, so I was very excited to try this one out. I bought this face wash during my trip in Hong Kong, see sasa haul. I have been searching for a great face wash for a while which will leave my skin with a moist and smooth feeling afterwards, will this face wash meet my requirements? We will read it here in this blogpost...
HadaLabo GOKUJYUN Face Wash is infused with super hyaluronic acid. It cleanses the face while locking water inside the skin. Hada Labo claims that this face wash is gentle and won't irritate the skin. It has no fragrance, no colorant, no alcohol and is oil-free. This face wash is suitable for all skintypes.
Price and Where to buy
I bought mine in Hong Kong at a Sasa store and it was 58 HKD there. You can also purchase this online at sasa.com for €6.20, it's slightly more expensive but still affordable. There is 100g in it and I think that one tube will last for approximately 4 months, it depends on how often you use it.
It comes with a tube, which is easy to use :). It has a great packaging and I like the clean and simple look of it - the packaging matches with the rest of this range. The descriptions are written in Chinese and Japanese, no English so you won't be able to read the ingredients =(.
Structure & Scent
The structure of the face wash is quite thick. You only need a bit of product to wash your whole face, that's why i think that one tube goes a long way. It does has a kind of a soap scent to it which can be unpleasant to some people. I didn't like it at first, but I got used to the scent somehow after using it for a few times.
How to use
Squeeze some onto palm, lather with water and massage it over your face, then rinse it off with water. As you can see it will foam a little bit but not a lot.
- Leaves my face moist and smooth
- Affordable product
- One tube goes a long way
- Great packaging
- Cleanses my face well
- Didn't break me out
- Soap Scent
- Limited stores are offering this product
This face wash is better than the JUJU Cosmetics Aquamoist face wash. The Hada Labo Gokujyun face wash leaves a very clean, smooth and moist feeling after usage. No tight feeling at all and it hasn't dried out my skin. Eventhough it feels hydrated, you will still need to moisturize your face with moisturizing products afterwards, since i don't think that the hydrated feeling will last the whole day. However, I do think that it does a great job for a face wash. I won't rely on this cleanser to remove make-up, but it does remove light layers of make-up. Full coverage make-up can not be efficiently removed. The only huge downside of this product is the scent =/. On the packaging it is stated that it has no fragrance but it definitely has a scent to it!
Note: I have a combinated dry skin.
