You may know that these two products from Hada Labo to be longtime cult hits, but the brand felt that there was a need to develop an even more superior lotion to maximize absorption & efficacy, and lengthen skin’s moisture-retention ability.
Hence, Hada Labo revamped its cult hydration lotion to help users achieve mochi skin (Japan’s answer to Korea’s glass skin!) in the face of harsher environmental conditions. The updated formulation is based on a newly-discovered golden ratio of four types of hyaluronic acid, where different sizes of the acid are targeted at different layers of the skin.
