Review: Hada Labo AHA/BHA Exfoliating Face Wash (Japanese skincare)

I picked this up in early January after having done research on AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) and BHA (salicylic acid) properties. How the chemical exfoliates may be best for sensitive skin. Hada Labo is famous for their hydrating line of skin care and especially their hyaluronic acid.

I'm not buying into the 'lock the moisture' into your skin thing, especially if you're after long term benefits but I saw this and decided I needed to try a new defoliator as my skin really needs consistent exfoliation to keep bump free.

The BHA or better known as Salicylic acid will help keep blemishes away!

Product!

The product is of a thick consistency but lathers and becomes a thin smooth layer when you're rubbing it on. It's scent free and because of the AHA and BHA properties it doesn't lather almost at all like a regular cleanser or soap face wash. It's your non-conventional scrub free scrub which is great for sensitive skin.

My skin is sensitive oily/dry combo and I've used this for now more than two months before my cleanser in the shower once a day and it's been really improving the quality of my skin overall in conjunction which my aqua label foaming face cleanser (yet to be reviewed).

I've never had trouble with using rougher textured scrubs but this has kept the little bumps on the sides of my face away without the need for a harsh scrub, it's been great, doesn't leave your skin feeling tight or itchy at all. I don't use it on it's own but I'm sure it has a part to play on improving my skin.





Paid: $15 SGD or $12 USD


Recommend: Yes, especially to people with oily, mild blemishes and sensitive skin...

Repurchase: Likely, when it's finished! It's going to take some months!

Bottom Line:  I love how it's been working to prevent little bumps I've had for months on the sides of my face. It's brilliant with the aqua label foaming whitening cleanser (soon to be reviewed). I like how it's easy to use, you need not much and it's now a permanent step in my skin care routine!

  5. I've heard a lot of good things about Hada Labo, but I'm not really sure where to start! Thanks for the review though. This certainly sounds interesting...

    1. Yes, there's so much in these lines! I say start with something that'd most likely effect your routine...the hyalauronic acid is just like a moisturizer...so id rather go for something that'd make a bigger impact. They do have a really affordable starter kit with minis of several products! :)

  7. Hada Labo AHA+BHA exfoliator tops my list of HG products! I've been using it for the past 2-3 years ever since I first started~ It leaves me feeling so clean and hydrated that I'm willing to overlook the fact that it's gentle (I prefer rough exfoliators). The most effective product in my bathroom hands down.

    I've got oily/sensitive skin and used to break out like mad, but now I only break out (mildly) when it's that time of the month since I've started using the full Hada Labo range after trying brands A-Z from over-the-counter to the more expensive ones. I think I would actually cry were this line to be discontinued! XD

    1. Yep, it's surprising how gentle it is and yet how its helped my skin feel more refined over time. I too would be in the shambles if it was stopped!

    1. Hey, sorry I didn't get back soon! I've been quite busy! The direction says twice a day but I only use it once at night during my shower and you only need a pea sized amount. I say start with once a day and a bit! :)

  9. Thanks for the review. Did this remove makeup at all?

    ReplyDelete

    1. This shouldn't really remove make up at all. I'd use a face wash like the st ives scrub or l'oreal face wash with peach seeds in the shower. Or I even use oat meal from the supermarket, softened with warm water and that gets face make up off! :)
