Skin concerns: Dullness, textured skin, dehydration
When I first reached for the Hada Labo Snow Dew, it looked very unassuming in the simple yet cheerful blue jar packaging. Upon using the mildly scented formula for the first time, my skin felt refreshed instantly.
My skin had a slight bounce and glow to it as well within the first use, and I particularly like how the texture felt like snow as I massaged it into my skin, which took no time to melt and be fully absorbed.
Personally, I find that it checks most of the boxes when it comes to what I want in a moisturiser. Within a week of review, I observed positive changes to my skin hydration, texture, softness, oiliness, and overall skin health – all without clogging pores or causing irritation.
Skin type: Combination-oily, sensitive
Skin concerns: Textured skin with visible pores and blackheads
When I first opened up the face cream to try, I got excited immediately because the Hada Labo Snow Dew Moisturizer looked just as its name suggested! I was so amazed by the unique snow-like texture and along with the lightweight, non-sticky finish, it also had a pleasant aroma that I liked.
The moisturiser absorbed really quickly and left no residue on my skin at all. In fact, I barely felt it on my skin – all I could sense was a refreshing after-feel upon application. My skin felt instantly hydrated, smoother, and somewhat bouncier after using it for the first time. When I looked at my skin in the mirror, I could tell that my skin had a glow to it as well.
I particularly like how it left a cooling effect on my skin, and I wanted to continue using the product even though I’ve only used it once. After incorporating it into my daily skincare routine for two weeks, my skin felt softer and more supple compared to before and it remained hydrated but not greasy. While it locks in moisture effectively, I find that the moisturiser doesn’t clog my pores which is a huge plus.
Skin type: Oily
Skin concerns: Textured skin, dehydration, blackheads/whiteheads
I typically stay away from moisturisers because the ones I’ve used only made my skin even greasier throughout the day. So, you can imagine my surprise when I tried Hada Labo Snow Dew Moisturizer and did not experience any of the said oiliness!
The formula absorbed really quickly and made my skin feel supple and hydrated with any heavy or greasy after-feel. After using it for just the first two days, I noticed visible improvements in my skin hydration, softness as well as sebum levels, which is pretty impressive!
I also noticed that my makeup lasted better within just one week of trialling Snow Dew. Personally, it’s the best moisturiser I’ve ever tried – it delivered what it promised, which was to offer a big gulp of water to my parched skin.
Most importantly, I really like that its sorbet-like formula helped my skin stay hydrated throughout the day without much oiliness.

Skin type: Normal, combination-dry
Skin concerns: Dull skin, textured skin, dryness, visible/enlarged pores
Most moisturisers I’ve tried left me with an icky stickiness that I didn’t like at all, but Hada Labo Snow Dew Moisturizer was unlike any of them.
The sorbet-like face cream instantly transformed into a watery texture that absorbed easily without clogging pores or leaving behind any greasy residue. Not only did my skin feel softer, more supple, and hydrated, but it has also become smoother in texture too.
After 14 days, my skin looks more radiant and feels healthier than before – it was as if I gave my parched skin a good drink of water!
Skin type: Normal, combination-dry, acne-prone
Skin concerns: Textured skin, dryness, blackheads/whiteheads
I was thoroughly impressed by how lightweight the moisturiser felt! Not only was it not sticky, but the Hada Labo Snow Dew also absorbed easily in seconds while leaving a cooling effect on my skin.
Within seven days, my skin texture became smoother and more refined – I’d noticed a change in my skin oiliness too. It’s even helped my makeup stay on longer throughout the day with regular application.
Skin type: Combination-oily, acne-prone
Skin concerns: Textured skin, dryness, visible/enlarged pores, blackheads/whiteheads
I love the unique sorbet-like texture of this lightweight moisturiser. It absorbed within seconds and left no sticky residue on my skin. In fact, it felt really refreshing and cooling from the first application. My skin felt instantly hydrated, but not in a greasy manner.
In 14 days, my skin felt softer and I appreciate that it doesn’t clog my pores at all. Compared to the previous moisturisers I used, I’d say that the Hada Labo Snow Dew helped seal in moisture effectively and is probably one of the few skincare products that have worked very well for my skin type.
Skin type: Combination-dry, sensitive, acne-prone
Skin concerns: Uneven skin tone, textured skin, dehydration, dryness, visible/enlarged pores, blackheads/whiteheads
Prior to trialling the Hada Labo Snow Dew Moisturizer, I was using a face cream that was unfortunately too heavy for my skin, so much so that it caused my skin to break out overnight.
So, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Snow Dew checked all the boxes for me, from its lightweight texture and non-sticky finish to its fast absorption rate and affordable price tag.
Using it twice daily after toner and serum, I first noticed how the formula glided on smoothly and absorbed really well, leaving my skin to feel instantly refreshed, plumper, and more hydrated after.
I like how the moisturiser left no unwanted residue on my skin, which is a huge plus point for me as the top two factors that I look out for when it comes to moisturisers are lightweight texture and non-greasy absorption.
I also appreciate that it helped my skin stay hydrated throughout the day and even refined my skin texture after regular use. Despite it being marketed for oily skin, neither did the moisturiser irritate my sensitive skin nor leave any other negative side effects.
In less than a week, I’d seen a decrease in skin oiliness; after 14 days, my skin doesn’t feel as dry in the mornings and it remains moisturised all day long without being oily!
I’ve already made up my mind to repurchase the moisturiser once I’m done with the current one because it just does a great job at locking in moisture for my skin – even my makeup glides on better now thanks to the moisturiser.

With its non-sticky, sorbet-like consistency, I must say the Hada Labo Snow Dew was very hydrating as advertised because I could tell that my skin’s thirst was adequately quenched and it felt softer and more supple instantly.
I noticed positive changes on my skin after just two days of usage and in 14 days, my skin looked more radiant and even my skin texture has become smoother after using the product.
It’s also a very fuss-free product to use, and I’d say that it ranks highly as one of the most lightweight moisturisers I’ve ever tried.
I truly did not expect how much I would come to enjoy using the Hada Labo Snow Dew Moisturizer, and I’m pleasantly surprised that it even lent a pleasant cooling effect on my skin which was such a godsent in our humid climate!

Skin concerns: Uneven skin tone, textured skin, visible/enlarged pores, blackheads/whiteheads
With the previous gel-type moisturisers that I used, I was particularly dissatisfied with them because they had claimed to be non-oily formulas but within an hour or two, my skin would be glowing – but not in a good way.
With the Hada Labo Snow Dew Moisturizer, I like that the formula’s consistency was refreshingly light and it absorbed into my skin really swiftly to hydrate my skin while mattifying its appearance. I also appreciate the pleasant, non-overpowering perfume as well as the spatula that the face cream comes with.
My parched skin felt hydrated, refreshed, and refined immediately after using the face moisturiser, and I find that the hydration it delivered also lasted much longer than other moisturisers I’ve tried previously. After two weeks, I noticed how my skin felt softer and more moisturised throughout the day but not in a way that made me appear like a greaseball.
I really like this product and I will repurchase it after I’ve used it up! You can also bet that I’ll be recommending it to my friends and family who are dealing with skin dryness and dehydration.

While my previous face cream worked for me, the scent was just too overwhelming for my liking and the formula also took too long to absorb when I use it in my routine – I often had to wait for it to properly sink into my skin before I slather on my sunscreen.
I encountered none of that with Hada Labo’s Snow Dew, thanks to its sorbet-like texture that got me super excited to try the product.
In addition to a nice, fuss-free packaging, the velvety moisturiser was just a dream to apply on my face and when I used it for the first time, my skin instantly felt refreshed and more hydrated but not greasy.
More importantly, my skin – which had slightly been on the drier side due to a pore-unclogging cleansing toner that I was using – lapped up all the moisturising goodness that the lightweight formula has packed within seconds so I didn’t have to waste any time waiting for the moisturiser to be fully absorbed into my skin.
Within the first use, I already saw better-hydrated skin that was less oily; after a week, I noticed an improvement in my skin texture. Additionally, my skin doesn’t feel as thirsty anymore after 14 days and it definitely remains hydrated throughout the day. Plus, my skin no longer feels as dry in the mornings!
