Review : Labo Labo Super-Moist 5H5C

When it comes to skincare, especially moisturizer... I like it simple! I have sensitive skin (these couple of years) and my skin get irritation easily! Donno is it because of aging, skin become more weaker and dryer as compare to before. So I always reach for moisturize that will provide intense hydration!

So when I learned about the Labo Labo Super-Moist 5H5C, I was pretty excited (always excited to try new hydrating and skin friendly skincare products!!)




Received this set of Labo Labo Super-Moist around late January (2016) and I immediately start using it the day I received it! (Can't wait to share my thought of this range with you all ^_^)

Labo Labo is sister brand of Dr. Ci:Labo - developed by certified Japanese dermatologists and 100%  and Made in Japan.


Labo Labo Super-Moist 5H5C is the first aging care line and first products of its kind in Japan to simultaneously contain many beautifying ingredients ( EGF , 5 types of Hyaluronic acid and 5 types of Collagen).

Labo Labo Super-moist range are suitable for all skin type (even sensitive skin)
  • No fragrance
  • No colorings
  • No mineral oils
  • paraben-free
5H5C stands for 5 types of Hyaluronic acid and 5 types of Collagen that’s why it’s called 5H5C


Labo Labo Super-Moist Gel
Price : S$34.90 (60g)

Labo Labo Super-Moist Gel is a multi-functional moisturizing gel that approaches the signs of first aging with just ONE STEP. This 5-in-1 product (Lotion, moisturizer, essence, brightening agen and makeup base) will leave skin refined, with elasticity and suppleness.


You can just apply Labo Labo Super-Moist Gel after cleansing and your skincare routine is complete!






After cleansing, place an appropriate amount (about the size of 2 pearls or more when needed) onto the palm of the hand and gently apply to the entire face. It is recommended that those who has dry skin to apply several layers of the product.


I have tried using this Labo Labo Super-Moist gel on both day and night.

  • I find that this is a pretty hydrating product, it does feel a little oily to touch but absorbed really well into the skin leaving skin feeling velvety smooth (the consistency feels like a richer (slightly thicker) type of hydrating makeup primer)
  • Doesn't feel sticky after the product absorbed into the skin
  • Skin feel pretty soft and supple after using this products for at least 2 weeks (start to see good results after using more then 3 weeks)
  • Does well as a makeup base
  • Has a light refreshing citrus scent
  • Doesn't cause any skin irritation
  • No breaking out from using this product for more then a month
  • As for night time, I find that this may be a little too light if your skin is dry or you like sleeping in air-con room... I'm in my mid-30s .. my skin is kinda dry (I have combination skin.. but they do feel tight - aging will make your skin dry - so remember to drink a lot of water and apply alot of moisturizer!!) ..
    I will apply 2 layers or top up with another layer of cream product. Now I just add a few drops of  Dr.Ci.Labo Placenta or Hyaluronic acid from the Super 100 Series.
Overall, this is a pretty good hydrating product that is suitable for day and night. The gel feels pretty nice and cooling on the skin. Leaving my skin feeling smooth and soft.
