Review Hada Labo+ Sensitive Hydrating Range

I have had this range since the end of last year but only used it early this year as most of you know I have quite a lot of skincare products that I used. I didn't want to open it too early so I could extend the expiry time. Except for the cream though, I actually finished the tub before I started using the other three products. This range is one of a kind from Hada Labo as it's a very different range from the normal ranges they offer and it's packaging design also shows a lot of difference from their original style. I'm not sure if this range is limited or a permanent range as I couldn't find info's on this range in Hada Labo's official website. But I do see this range still sold in some of Malaysian's well-known beauty platforms. I just hope they don't discontinue this range because it's quite a good range and it soothes skin as promised.

Hada Labo+ Sensitive Hydrating Range is aimed for those with sensitive skin. When I received this range it came at the right time actually. I kinda felt that I was having sensitive skin as I could see often redness to my skin at that time, and from the few skincare tests online that I took, some suggested I may have sensitive skin, but my skin has always been oily combination. So I thought of using it's cream first and see how it goes.

If you experience skin dryness, tightness, stinging, itchiness, or redness chances are you have sensitive skin. Skin sensitivity can be caused by external factors such as weather, air pollution, and exposure to excessive UV rays. It can also be caused by internal factors such as stress, allergies, and hormonal changes. 

Hada Labo+ Sensitive Hydrating range is a range to help that's formulated with multiple protective soothing formula to strengthen and restore balance to the skin. It's packed with quite a number of super ingredients that made me so eager to try. Below is the breakdown:

Lecithin, Squalene, Shea Butter: Acts as a protective film to protect the skin against environmental pollutant and stressors in keeping the skin healthy

Phytosterols, Ceramide: Help to smooth, soften as well as strengthen and repair the skin barrier

Alpha Bisabolol, Gingerol: To calm as well as soothe irritation and redness on the skin

As with all Hada Labo products, the Hada Labo+ Sensitive Hydrating range also contains the signature ingredient which is Hyaluronic Acid that penetrates deep into skin to intensely hydrate and restore the skin’s moisture. It is pH balanced and free from fragrance, colorant, alcohol, and mineral oil.

Hada Labo+ Sensitive Hydrating Face Wash 
Price: RM29.90 (100g)
Water, Water/Sodium Lauroamphoacetate/Sodium Chloride, Water/Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate, Water/Cocamidopropyl Betaine/ Water/Sodium Chloride, Water/Sodium Cocoamphoacetate/Sodium Chloride, Water/Styrene/Acrylates Copolymer, Water/Acrylates Copolymer, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Citric Acid, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Potassium Hydroxide, Chlorphenesin, Disodium EDTA, Water/Butylene Glycol/Vaccinium Myrtillus Leaf Extract, Water/Butylene Glycol/Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Water/Butylene Glycol, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tranexamic Acid, Water/Butylene Glycol/Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract, Alphaglucan Oligosaccharide

My Thoughts:
Ingredient wise, it contains anti-inflammatory ingredients such as Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Myrtillus Leaf Extract and also Ginkgo Biloba Leaf Extract that's known for its soothing properties. They also added in Tranexamic Acid which is a whitening property that is a well-used ingredient in other ranges of Hada Labo products. The texture of its face wash is thick and creamy which produces a generous amount of foam with a tiny amount used. I haven't experienced any stings using this but I don't seem to really love it. It works just ordinary for me as sometimes I choose to use other cleansers with the same anti-inflammatory ingredients on breakout days.

Hada Labo+ Sensitive Hydrating Lotion

My Thoughts:
What's a lotion for? I got pretty confused when I first tried Hada Labo's other range of lotion for the first time. This is my 2nd range of lotion from Hado Labo but I don't think this is much to my liking compared to the first one I've tried. Lotion is a replacement for toner in Hada Labo's range which its consistency is much thicker compared to toners which are more watery. It functions the same as toners which lotions are easier to be dapped in with the palms of the hands instead of using a cotton pad. From the list of ingredients, it doesn't have much hydrating ingredients except for Lecithin, a natural emulsifier that's a good hydrating agent for the skin barrier. This also contains anti-inflammatory and soothing ingredients such as Vaccinium Myrtillus Leaf Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract.  Not forgetting Tranexamic Acid that's a whitening agent which is most probably a signature ingredient for Hada Labo products such as Hyaluronic Acid. Overall, this is a good lotion to help soothing skin but my preference is still Hada Labo's Premium Whitening Lotion.

Hada Labo+ Sensitive Hydrating Milk
Price: RM59.90 (90ml) 
Water, Glycerin, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Butylene Glycol, Behenyl Alcohol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Hydroxyacetophenone, Pentylene Glycol, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Niacinamide, Hydrogenated Phosphatidylcholine, Butylene Glycol/Water/Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract/Saposhnikovia Divaricata Root Extract/Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract/Albizia Julibrissin Flower Extract/Gastrodia Elata Root Extract, Xanthan Gum, Phytosteryl/Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Saccharide Isomerate/Water/Citric Acid/Sodium Citrate, Arginine, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Panthenol, Bisabolol/Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Disodium EDTA, 3-o-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Ceramide 3/Phytosphingosine, Oleic Acid/Water

My Thoughts:
What is milk in skincare? I honestly am a newbie to milk in skincare too so I don't have much explanation on this except that it's like a light version of moisturizing cream. This Sensitive Hydrating Milk is probably my first ever trial of using milk and I'm quite pleased with this one already. It has a very light creamy texture and it sinks easily into the skin. It isn't greasy at all and I've been preferring to use this ever since I've tried it. Going into the ingredient list, it's pretty packed with goodness. What worries me is that Shea Butter is a good ingredient but it can also be comedogenic which is risky for those who have oily skin. But since this range is focused on sensitive skin, shea butter would help a lot in improving the skin barrier. Besides, they also added Niacinamide which is known as a vitamin to help minimize pores. This milk also contains a lot of plant extract which has anti-bacterial and anti-aging properties. It also contains Ascorbic Acid which is known as Vitamin C and also Ceramide which is a very good ingredient for the skin barrier. This has reacted well with my skin without any slight irritation or sorts. With this, I think I'll be looking into more milks after I finished with this one.

Hada Labo+ Sensitive Hydrating Cream

Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Water/Glyceryl Acrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer/Propylene Glycol/PVM/MA Copolymer/Methylparaben/Propylparaben, Behenyl Alcohol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter) , Hydroxyacetophenone, Pentylene Glycol, Phytosteryl/Octyldodecyl Lauroyl Glutamate, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Niacinamide, Panthenol, Hydrogenated Phosphatidylcholine, Butyl ene Glycol/Water/Astragalus Membranaceus Root Extract/Saposhnikovia Divaricata Root Extract/Calendula Officinalis Flower Extract/ Albizia Julibrissin Flower Extract/Gastrodia Elata Root Extract, Saccharide Isomerate/Water/Citric Acid/ Sodium Citrate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Arginine, Xanthan Gum, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Bisabolol/Zingiber Officinale (Ginger) Root Extract, Disodium EDTA, 3-o-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid, Ceramide 3/Phytosphingosine/Oleic Acid/Water, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, Sodium Hyaluronate

My Thoughts:
This is the first product out of the range that I used up and finished before I even started using the rest of the range. I have a thing for moisturizers where I can't wait to use it, besides moisturizes are like the basics when it comes to skincare. Great skin is from having moisturized skin and this is where moisturizes play a big role. I used the cream first to see if this range was compatible with me as I wasn't sure if this range would work well with me and it turns out, it did. This cream is thick and creamy and it absorbs quickly into the skin. There's no feeling of stickiness after application which makes me love to combine this with some face oil and I'll wake up to a great and moisturized face. I also noticed this while my skin breakouts really soothe the skin, especially when sometimes I tend to get irritation and redness. Ingredient wise, the cream is like the main product for this range as it has pretty much everything the range says to offer. Using the cream itself is good enough if you don't want to get the complete range.

Overall this range is a must-try for those who have sensitive skin. It's packed with all good ingredients to help soothe the skin and its anti-inflammatory properties.
