Hada Labo Launch Preview – Japan’s Bestselling Hydration Series


Last week, I have attended the Hada Labo Launch Preview Media Intimate Session (organised by Vibes Communications) to introduce the Japan’s Bestselling Hydration Series at Takumi Tokyo @Marina at Keppel Bay.



I feel especially fortunate to be invited to this private event which for the first time to be able to attend a preview together with the people from the media industry.


It was indeed an interesting event and I truly enjoyed it. What also excite me is that I get to meet and catch up with my fellow blogger friends at the event. There are two time slot for us to choose from, 12.30-2.30pm and 3.30-5.30pm and I have taken the second slot.


Takumi Tokyo @Marina at Keppel Bay (surrounded with ‘water’) is chosen as the perfect place as it coincides with Hada Labo’s bestselling Hydration Series.


hada labo

Hada Labo, a brand underRohto-Mentholatum, will be officially launching the #1 Japan bestselling Super Hyaluronic Acid (SHA) Moisturising Lotion which sells 1 bottle every 4 seconds in Singapore in June 2010. Hada Labo, which has a Perfect x Simple philosophy, will also launch the full ranges in moisturising, whitening and exfoliating.


Hada Labo has generously given each bloggers a FULL SET OF HYDRATION SERIES for review and testing. (I’m soooo happy!)


Gabriel Chu (Senior Manager of Rohto-Mentholatum Singapore) and Niwa Takeshi (Technical Manager for Business Development & Planning Division of Rohto Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd., Osaka, Japan) who is seen with an interpreter, respectively presented the Hada Labo’s profiles, Perfect x Simple philosophy, product technology, products and the benefits.


Six of the Hada Labo girls demonstrated the steps on how to pat your skin with the SHA Moisturising Lotion. With the audiences doing the steps at the same time.


Each of the attendants is given a hydration test on the palm with their star product, Hada Labo SHA Moisturising. After a small drop was given, I gently massaged and pat my palm for about 10 seconds and followed with the test. The result is MAGNIFICENT! It’s almost 3X more hydration after application. It is unbelievable!


Introduced in Japan in 2004, the Hada Labo SHA Moisturising Lotion quickly became a clear favorite and top-selling cult-product amongst beauty lovers, selling 1 bottle every 4 seconds. Today, it is also popular in countries like Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, China and Malaysia, as many customers embrace it as their Holy Grail skincare product, optimized for Asian skin. Other Hada Labo sales winners are Arbutin Lotion (#1 Japan Whitening Lotion), and Arbutin Milk (#1 Japan Whitening Milk).


The star product, Hada Labo SHA Moisturising Lotion, replenishes and locks in moisture for complete hydration. Super Hyaluronic Acid, an advanced skin hydrating ingredient,retains twice the moisture of Hyaluronic Acid, which is a common ingredient in other skincare products (1 gram of Hyaluronic Acid can hold up to 6 litres of water).



Used as part of a beauty regiment after cleansing, application is simple. Drip two to three drops on the palm, gently pat onto skin until the viscous lotion is thoroughly absorbed. As the Super Hyaluronic Acid ingredient mimics the skin’s natural moisturising ability to enhance water retention, it preserves the skin’s optimum moisture balance and leaves the surface lastingly hydrated and incomparably softer and suppler.



The Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturising Lotion retails at S$22.90 exclusively at Watsons from June 2010.



Inspired by traditional Japanese beauty wisdom, Hada Labo adopts the philosophy of “no more no less” in developing its products. In fulfilling the commitment of ‘PERFECT X SIMPLE’, Hada Labo took special care to remove unnecessary additives such as alcohol, colorant, fragrance and mineral oil that will burden the skin, retaining only the finest, purest and most effective essential ingredients, such as Super Hyaluronic Acid, that are beneficial to the skin to ensure maximum efficacy.



The Hada Labo products are researched and developed in Rohto’s Pharmaceutical Research Village in Kyoto. Using technology developed through the manufacturing of medicinal drugs, Hada Labo products are produced in a pharmaceutical manufacturing environment, under strict Goods Manufacturing Practice (GMP), including raw material selection, processing and quality control. This ensures superior product quality, reliability and effectiveness.

    Have you tried Alovivi 100% hyaluronic acid extract? (from Beauty Language) is it the same? but the alovivi product is so ex!! (at $60 for 30ml)

    How long does the hada Labo toner last? (months of usage).
    does your face secret oil after that?

  2. Shirleen says:

    No I never try Alovivi HA extract before. For me, I find Hada Labo lotion is real good. After each use, my skin gets instant hydration. I actually love it!

    I have slightly dry skin, my skin doesn’t feel oily after hours later.

    You may want to try the samples before you buy it :


  3. Moon says:

    Hi Shirleen

    I just want to ask it this product Hada Labo Made in Japan coz i quite confuse what i saw in my country it Made in China are the product is same?

  4. Shirleen says:

    Hi Moon,

    That’s strange! Made in China?? I wonder if it’s genuine?

    What I have with me are all made in Japan by Rohto Pharmaceutical Co. Japan.

    Not another SK-II…… It is believed that SKII products that are distributed to Taiwan, China and Hong Kong are made in China. :-)

  5. moon says:

    I don’t know the label is same as your picture on your blog (One drop locks up an ocean)don’t have the blue small logo.
    Anyway i will try to find at other outlets :)

  6. obagi says:

    Hi there. I am a big fan of Hada Labo products and every time when I go to Japan, I try to buy as much as possible. The company seem to release new line of products every so often and I love going to Japanese drug stores to see all the new products.

  7. bao says:

    i was wonder how much is
    Hada Labo the product if i buy in the U.S

  8. Eisse J says:

    Thanks for the review and videos. I’m lovin the Hada Labo and using it daily. (Bye-bye dry skin)

  9. Shirleen says:

    U r welcome! :-)

  10. Szu Miin says:

    My first impression about this product is
    will it make my face oily? Fortunately, when
    i use the lotion, i can hardly believe it, my face is so soft!

  11. Shirleen says:

    Hi Szu Min,

    I totally agree with you, my skin is so soft after using it too. It has became my ‘must-have’ night skincare regimen product. :-)

  12. Yvonne says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    I don’t really understand this hydrating product. Is it used as a moisturizer or use on top of a moisturizer? This looks amazing to hydrate the skin, but will it be too lacking as compared to an anti-aging moisturizer?


  13. Shirleen says:

    Hi Yvonne,

    It is in fact a lotion, not a moisturizer. Use this product after cleanser. It softens the skin so that it can help a better penetration of nutrients from the next product. You will still need to use a moisturizer to seal up the skin as the final regimen.

  14. Yvonne says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    Thanks for the clarification. I’m so confused with so many products in the market. Can I ask you another qns? Under your recommendation, I’m using the Paula’s Choice leave on exfoliant, and if I want to use this lotion, I assume it’s after the exfoliant?

  15. Shirleen says:

    Hi Yvonne,

    Yes, there are so many products everywhere and so many new launches too. It’s quite confusing.

    Correct, use the Paula Choice’s Exfoliant and follow by Hada Labo Lotion.

  16. mona says:

    Hi Shirleen,
    I really love Hada labo, I’ve been using this product since last July (I moved to Japan in January this year). At first I was just curious, because whenever I went to a drug store, the refill for Hadalabo was always half sold out than other products. In July, my skin was really dry, and just couldn’t catch up with Japan’s hot humid weather, I got acnes, really bad! a little desperate, noticing beautiful japanese women in shinjuku buying this product,so I decided to buy one too, and never regret that decision eversince. It really helps my skin. It really moisturizes, and got rid the acnes for me ^_^

  17. Shirleen says:

    Hi Mona,

    Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Yes I have seen the advertisement on refill on YouTube. It’s not available in Singapore yet.

    I love the lotion very much too, my ‘must-have’ product for my night regime. I’ve been using it ever since it launched in July. ;-)

  18. fannie says:

    hi my face has some severe pimples.
    is it okay to use the hada labo milk lotion?

    thanks :D

  19. Shirleen says:

    Hi Fannie,

    Definitely you can. Just use a little will do.

  20. Anita says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    I am continuing Moon confusion, the made in china does exsist around here, can you advise me, where I can buy the original product online? The Hada Labo hasn’t arrived in my country yet, don’t know if they ever will, I am in Indonesia

  21. Shirleen says:

    Hi Anita,

    You can buy the original Hada Labo products at The Sample Store website. Please email to help@thesamplestore.sg for enquiry.

  22. Leticia Cervantes says:

    Please send me a phone number or web site address to obtain Hada Labo products.

    Thank You

  23. Shirleen says:

    Hi Leticia,

    Please email to The Sample Store at help@thesamplestore.sg to obtain Hada Labo products.

  24. linda says:

    hi shirleen, do you know if they have an exfoliator or some sort of peeling? doesnt seem like they have any? maybe if you use the products you dont need them? im going to try the aha/bha range

  25. Shirleen says:

    Hi Linda,

    Hada Labo do carry AHA/BHA range, here’s the reference – http://www.hadalabo.com.sg/index_EN.htm

  26. mas says:

    hi shileen i want to ask you a question hada labo is made in chiana or japan? it is original product because i buy at Gardian Malaysia ..

  27. Shirleen says:

    Hi Mas,

    All Hada Labo products are made in Japan. I’m not surprised there are imitation flooding around, be careful.

  28. Fizah says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    I just google about Hada Labo product review, and found your website.

    I have an enquiry, my skin have acnes and sometimes the skin is very oily. I used to have a clear skin last year, but not sure what went wrong, now end-up with congested skin. Do you think the cleanser and the lotion are suitable for oily skin and is there any of its product could eliminate blemish?


  29. Shirleen says:

    Hi Fizah,

    It sounds like your skin maybe dehydrated and covered with a layer of dead skin cells. When skin is dehydrated, the oil sebum will push up to the surface of the skin. Yes the cleanser and lotion are suitable for your skin type.

    Hada Labo carries another range specially for blemishes – AHA & BHA Exfoliating Care. Not too sure if it is good.

  30. Malina says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    My skin is very oily and acne prone + easily to get scars. Plan to use SK-II Facial Treatment Essence, but don’t plan to use the other range of SK-II products yet as I’m afraid they didn’t suits me. Can you suggest me the other range of cleanser, toner and moisturizer? Interested with Hada Labo :-)

  31. Shirleen says:

    Hi Malina,

    Hada Labo cleanser, lotion and emulsion are pretty good. You probably wanna start with the starter kit before buying the full size products. Hope the products work on you.

    Fyi, I’m presently using the Dr. Cilabo Super Cleansing EX (makeup remover) and Cleansing Foam EX. Not too bad though. My skin super clean after using them.

    Btw, use the SKII FTE after the Hada Labo lotion and before emulsion.

  32. Malina says:

    Thank you Shirleen for the reply. Hope that Hada Labo products will cure my oiliness face…

  33. Jesz says:

    Hello,juz want to share.. for those concerning about HL China and Japan, both r actually original.( Found it in their webste)All the ingredients r brought frm Japan to China so that the price will b cheapper in some countries. Like in S’pore, they r fully imported frm Japan while in M’sia in it’ll b from China.Only The new range HL Retinol-anti aging(red), r fully imported from Japan.

  34. Shirleen says:

    Hi Jesz,

    Just to clarify, when the ingredients are brought from Japan to China, do you mean those HL products sold in China are manufacture in China?

  35. Jesz says:

    Hi, Shirleen, I’m not too sure about it coz i nvr bought 1 in China. But in M’sia, there’s been a big question mark on ths issue. So, i did a little research myself n found that, the ingredients are brought to China and undergo the same process as it is in Japan. Since Rohto is a big company-i’m a bit convince tht this wont b a big prob.We can buy it with peace in mind as long as we bought it at the right place.

  36. Shirleen says:

    Thanks Jesz for the info. ;-)

  37. Stephy says:

    Hi, Shirleen! Do u know whether Hada Labo moisturizing care have the function of protect skin from UV and dryness?

  38. Shirleen says:

    Hi Stephy,

    Unfortunately, Hada Labo does not have any product for UV protection.

  39. burberry says:

    hai shirleen,

    i am quite interest to try dis HL product.. can you name me list of the product so that i can make as a refence b4 going to watson + guardian .. since all of the product r all in japanese….

  40. WeeSan says:

    Hi all,

    I just bought Hada Labo Moisturizing Lotion recently without doing any research. I am surprised to read so many good review about this product.

    My skin used to be dry and caused break-out. I have ance scars too. I wonder does it helps to reduce scar?

  41. Shirleen says:

    HI Burberry,

    The 4 ranges are :

    Hydrating range (white packaging)
    - Makeup Remover, Face Wash, Lotion, Essence, Cream (new), Milk & Mask

    Whitening range (blue packaging)
    - Lotion, Essence, Milk & Mask

    Anti-aging range (red packaging)(not too sure if it’s available in Malaysia yet)
    - Lotion, Essence, Milk & Mask

    AHA/BHA Exfoliating Care (baby blue)
    - Exfoliating Face Wash & Exfoliating Face Wash Foam

    You may wanna check out the products from this link : http://www.hadalabo.com.sg/

  42. Shirleen says:

    Hi WeeSan,

    The moisturizing Lotion will help to improve your dry skin but it wouldn’t reduce the scars though. It may probably make the scars appear less visible.

  43. Karen says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    I have quite oily skin, large pores and my face looks dull so I am in desperate need to repair it. I have read about your reviews on this HL Hydration series as well as the Kiehl Ultra Facial Oil-Free range of products. I am looking for natural products. Could you kindly advise me which are those suitable for my condition?

    Thanks you.

  44. Shirleen says:

    Hi Karen,

    I guess your large pores and dull skin maybe due to the accumulation of dead skin cells on your skin surface. You may want to remove the dead skin by using an exfoliant. For something mild, you may want to check out the Clarins White Plus Renewing Gentle Exfoliator or Gentle Renewing Brightening Peel.

    I will personally prefer Hada Labo Hydration series then Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Oil-Free range because HL products are formulated with better and non-irritant ingredients. The HL products may help to improve your oily skin.

  45. Karen says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    Thanks for your advice. For my skin type, can i use Hada Labo Hydration series with Dr. Cilabo Aqua-Collagen-Gel Super Sensitive? If so, where can I get this gel?

    Sin Yin

  46. sharmila says:

    hi,my skin always get acne and pimple then it become dark scar,and i have using to many product before. the result still not statisfied.what product should used to solve this problem

  47. Shirleen says:

    Hi Sharmila,

    Not too sure if the Hada Labo exfoliating range will help to treat your problems. You may want to consult a dermatologist for help.

  48. Where in the US can I buy Hada skin products?


  49. Shirleen says:

    Hi Lorraine,

    Not too sure though, very likely you have to get it online.

  50. Where in US may I order the Hda skin care products

  51. Michelle says:

    Hi Shirleen

    If I’m using SK2 clear lotion, follow by FTE & signature cream, at which step should I apply this SHA MOISTURISING LOTION? or can I replace signature cream with SHA lotion?

    I have enlarged pores and oily skin at T-zone, yet the cheeks are generally rather dehydrated, as fine lines have started to appear and skin does feel tight after a wash ( SIMPLE DEEP CLEANSING WASH)


  52. Shirleen says:

    Hi Michelle,

    For me, I will use the SKII clear lotion with a cotton pad to help remove the residue on the skin and follow with SHA moisturizing lotion using padding motion with SHA lotion on my palms. And lastly with FTE and signature cream.

    Since you have oily skin on T-zone area, you only need to apply very little of the cream on the area. I hope you are not overwashing your face. Try not to wash more than 2 times per day.

  53. abi says:


    I like to get 1 sample of Hada Labo before i get a big botals….can u suggest me?

  54. Shirleen says:

    Hi Abi,

    I’m not too sure if they can deliver to Malaysia.

  55. Chiew Yen says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    What do you think of the essence & milk?
    How do i go about using them?


  56. Shirleen says:

    Hi Chiew Yen,

    Both are not too bad. Here’s the regimen :

    Wash > Lotion > Essence (Serum) > Milk

  57. nurul says:

    i only use aha+bha cleanser for about a couples of days..i wanna ask if i should or not use the lotion?just curious..

  58. Shirleen says:

    Hi Nurul,

    I guess it’s no harm using the lotion as it may help to provide moisture to your skin.

  59. Marge says:

    Hi Shirleen I bought the hada labo white range the cleanser the lotion /toner and the essence..but seems a my face just look clog the next morning but I can tell my skin is hydrated and smooth…I just want to ask what is your regimen on using hada labo..since hada labo don’t have sunscreen on their products what else do you use for your regular basis since you have so very nice skin glowing and poreless please reply soon. thank you.

  60. Shirleen says:

    Hi Marge,

    The correct regimen for hada labo is : Wash > Lotion > Essence (Serum) > Milk

    For sunscreen, you can check out Clarins UV Plus HP Day Screen SPF 40 or Kiehl’s Ultra Light Daily UV Defense SPF 50 PA+++.

    I have been reviewing a number of new products and have been changing products frequently recently. As of now, I would say that AHA products work great on my skin. Check out AHA products from Paula’s Choice.

  61. Marge says:

    thanks Shirleen for reply..just to follow up question can I use AHA cream after the hada labo toner/lotion? or AHA toner the the hada labo lotion? thanks for the reply I really appreciated =)

  62. Shirleen says:

    Hi Marge,

    Sure, you can use AHA cream after hada labo lotion.

  63. Shirley says:

    hi Shirleen,

    Saw that you are using Dr Ci:Lo cleanser and may I know have you tried their star product like Aqua Collagen Gel etc as I am interested to buy one? (didnt spot any review on this brand)
    And is Paula’s AHA pdts suitable for sensitive skin and where can i buy them in Spore?

    Tks v much.

  64. Shirleen says:

    Hi Shirley,

    Yes I’ve tried a couple of their products and I’ve tried the Aqua Collagen Gel. I actually love most of their products. Aqua Collagen Gel has a lightweight gel texture and if you like something light and refreshing, this product may be ideal for you. It can be used for day and night. I personally prefer something richer and creamy for the night regimen.

    I have sensitive skin too and I’ve been using AHA products for a while. My skin has somewhat adapted to AHA products but if you are using the high-concentration Paula’s Choice AHA products for the first time, I will advise you to start using it twice a week before using it every day. You probably can feel tingling sensation when you first use.

    Paula’s Choice products can only be purchased via online. Here’s the link : http://paulaschoice.com.sg/

  65. Shirley says:

    hi Shirleen,

    TQ for your prompt reply!

    Oh yes I saw your reviews and the link on the Paula products after wrting you this mail.

    Something richer at night do you mean night creams? I also wish to buy richer products at night as I am in my late 30 but so fas has been trying diff brands and yet to settle on a long term brand.

    For Dr Cilo This pdt is 5-in-1 acting like a toner + moisturiser + serum + sunscreen + make-up base so I am wondering can I still use toner and serum etc as I am afraid that this item alone might be “insufficient”…a bit “kiasu”..haha.


  66. Phanarat says:

    Just bought one from Watson KLCC, Kuala Lumpur Malaysia, and Oh-no! It’s made in China. I’m mad now.

  67. Shirleen says:

    Hi Phanarat,

    Ya some readers have previously highlighted to me that the Hada Labo products sold in Malaysia are found to be made in China.

  68. fiona says:

    Just wanna ask if i want to use both product for hydrating and whitening,may i know what is right step for me to use especially after i use the cleanser. can i mix the hydrating product n whitening product together at one time?

  69. Shirleen says:

    Hi Fiona,

    You can mix both hydrating and whitening products but you only need one milk moisturizer, serum or lotion from either range on each regimen.

    Cleanser (Wash) > Lotion > Serum > Milk

  70. Ashy says:

    Just came across ur blog while trying to get review of mimian sonic brush. Love love love ur blog! Lots of useful tips! Would like to know if I still need to apply moisturizer after the SHA lotion? Thanks.

  71. Shirleen says:

    Hi Ashy,

    I’m so glad you love my blog, thanks for coming back again! ;-)

    Yes, you still need to apply moisturizer after SHA lotion.

  72. eisha says:

    Hi Shirleen
    i am new on japanese beauty product and i really wanted to try it coz of my admiration on japanese peoples beautiful skin…
    i am planning to buy the product but i wanna make sure it really is made in japan not china…
    can i ask for an advice on a good product for me to start with please :) my skin looks dull and dry and the circle around my eyes are getting dark and wrinkled coz of the weather i think in here and most product i use is just a waste… please… i would really appreciate your help :) thanks…

  73. Shirleen says:

    Hi Eisha,

    You probably need to incorporate an exfoliant into your regimen to help remove the dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. That maybe the reason why your skin looks dull and dry.

    For exfoliant, if you prefer something that is made in Japanese, you may want to consider Hada Labo AHA/BHA range. Not too sure if what sold in Indonesia are made in Japan or China.

    Your eye areas seem dry to me and I’m not too sure if your wrinkles around the eyes are due to dryness. If yes, you will need to hydrate your eye areas intensively.

    There are many causes of dark eye circles, you will need to find out and here’s a link for you : http://womenlovebeauty.com/beauty-tips/eye-sun-care/1745
    Do some massage around the eye areas to improve blood circulation.

    You may want to also consider Paula’s Choice Resist Intensive Wrinkle-Repair Fetinol Serum. It can be used around eye areas to help reduce the wrinkles and it can also exfoliate your skin thereby improve your dull and dry skin. And most importantly feed your skin with sufficient moisture cos dehydration will make your skin looks dull and dry too. ;-)

  74. Elaine says:

    Hi Shirleen

    thanks to your blog for the Hadalabo products. May i know what’s the difference between AHA/BHA Exfoliating Face Wash and the AHA/BHA Exfoliating Foaming Wash? I’m confuse. Mine is oily type and with pimples sometimes so i guess i can try out this?

    Can i mix the AHA/BHA range with the Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing range?


  75. Shirleen says:

    Hi Elaine,

    Both have same benefits that are formulated with different texture – creamy or foamy.

    Sure, you can mix AHA/BHA range with Super Hyaluronic Acid range.

  76. gin says:

    Hi Shirleen,
    Can I also use this lotion in the morning before my make up. And I have this exfoliating lotion from clinique, I use this after clinique rgt?

  77. Shirleen says:

    Hi Gin,

    I will rather you use the Clinique exfoliating lotion during the night regimen and Hada Labo in the day.

  78. gin says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    Thank you very much! Will sure follow your advise.

    I have another problem. That is these nasolabial lines seems like getting more obvious since this yr.. I am 36, just started using skin care product few months ago ( a lil too late I know.. oops). Am considering the SK II stempower or Shishedo bio performance super corrective serum. Which one would you recommend me to get rid of the nasolabial lines?

  79. Shirleen says:

    Hi Gin,

    Unfortunately, both are not able to eliminate nasolabial folds cos these are caused by skin sagging when muscles underneath the fat weaken and lose elasticity and tone.

    What you need to do is not to get it worse. I will recommend SK-II StemPower as it may help to improve your skin elasticity though the result may not be obvious. It’s never too late to start preventing and delaying the signs of aging now. :-)

  80. gin says:

    Hi Shirleen,

    Oh.. sad to hear that…the lines r making me looks like 10yrs older…

    Ok, I shall try a small bottle one 1st.

    Thank you very much shirleen. I came across your blog while looking for reviews on stempower. And I just can’t help to read every day for other products! Your blog is really good and informative!!

    Thank you very much for your reply n help! Have a good day! Will not stop reading your blog!

  81. naz says:

    hi shirleen

    I used to have acne before, and then i started to use the AHA+BHA facial wash, the super hyaluronic acid moisturizing lotion and milk in the morning and night, and eventhough they are made in china (they dont have the one made in Japan here), my skin has gotten MUCH MUCH MUCH better and now i dont have all those annoying pimples anymore (only once a while when i dont get enough sleep) and my skin is way softer!!

    I was just wondering if i bought the whole set of the regimen, what would be the order of use (as in which one should be used after which one) because i bought both essence and milk but idk which one to use first and i dont want the essence to come to waste

  82. Shirleen says:

    Hi Naz,

    I’m glad you can find Hada Labo in Brunei.

    You should start with the essence follow by the milk.

    AHA+BHA facial wash > the super hyaluronic acid moisturizing lotion > essence > milk

  83. han says:

    Hi there, I have dark spots from acne and uneven bumps and large pores on my nose. Between the sha and whitening products, which is more suitable for me? And if I use the aha/bha exfoliating wash, it will be at which step? Skin care regime is quite confusing as there are so many products out there..

  84. Shirleen says:

    Hi Han,

    Since you are dark spots, whitening will be more suitable for you. If you are using aha/bha wash, the sequence should be :

    AHA/BHA Exfoliating Wash >> Whitening Lotion >> Whitening Essence >> Whitening Milk

  85. han says:

    Okay thank you. Then regarding large pores, uneven surface and blackhead on face and nose, it is best to seek advice from a dermatologist? So many options available but so hard to find a suitable and good one. I have quite a lot of questions hoping that a professional doctor can answer..

  86. Shirleen says:

    Hi Han,

    Based on my experiences, the best option for :

    Large pores – I will go for microdermabrasion (Bella) and follow by IPL (Dr. Chee)
    Uneven surface – I do not have this issue but I reckon laser may help to improve the condition. This may need a doctor to advise you.
    Blackheads & whiteheads – extraction during facial spa treatment
