Hada Labo Retinol Lifting & Firming Lotion


In May 2011, Hada Labo introducing their latest addition "Retinol Lifting & Firming" Range to Singapore.

This range come with 3 premium and potent ingredients : 
Vitamin A retinol
Hydrolyzed Collagen
Hada Labo's signature ingredient "Super Hyaluronic Acid(SHA)"
(Ingredients to restore youthful bounciness of our skin)

Hada labo's Lifting & Firming Range stays true to its PERFECT X SIMPLE brand philosophy - using only the finest and purest ingredients without unnecessary additives, colorant, alcohol, fragrances and mineral oils.

Ingredients list...

The texture of the lotion feel really similar to the Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion.. just abit thicker. The lotion has a yellowish tint to it.

My sister and I have finished the Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating Lotion so I dont have any product left for comparison side by side. (so I just include a pic I took back then..For review on the Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating range- click here)

I prefer to pour the lotion on a cotton pad and pat it onto my whole face(I wanna make sure that the product was fully absorbed into my skin and not just on the surface)

I have been using this for about 3weeks plus and stop afew days inbetween.

My first impression was that this lotion feel abit more thick and "slimy" as compare to the Original Super Hyaluronic Acid Hydrating(SHA) Lotion. I didn't use my hand to pat this lotion into my skin so I'm not sure whether this will feel "sticky" like the SHA.

I pour a good amount of the Hada Labo Retinol Lifting & Firming Lotion onto a cotton pad.. wipe it onto my whole face before I start patting my skin.. focusing more on trouble areas, like my forehead (alot of fine lines)and inner cheeks, near my nose (huge pores).

Feel really moisturizing and soothing... after aweek of using the lotion twice a day.. I feel that my skin feel abit more supple and tight. I still see my fine lines on my foreheads.. pores was abit minimized(well, I think it the result of using the Vichy pores serum - Hada Labo just keep the area hydrated).

BUT.. my skin start to have some tiny red and painful bumps around my inner cheeks... so I stop using the lotion for a few days for it to heal first. It start to heal very soon(cos I'm using LMS spotlight to speed up the healing!)

It so near my T-zone(which is the oilier part of most combination to oily skin) so rich products will more likey to cause breakout. (I thought it wont cos I don't experiences any breakout when I'm using the SHA lotion)

I start using the lotion again(after the bumps have flaten), and I dont use it everyday. I rotated it with my normal toner lotion(Sana Nameraka Honpo: Soy lotion RICH or Essential Lift Fortifying Toner) and it work so well NOW.

This lotion need abit of time to pat and absorb into the skin because the texture was abit thicker as compare to watery toner lotion. And if you ask me which Hada Labo lotion I prefer.. I would say The Retinol Lifting & Firming Lotion. This just feel much soothing, moisturizing and absorb better.
