|Hada Labo Skin Plumping Gel Cream|
I recently received Hada Labo Skin Plumping Gel Cream in a massive Glam Media goodie bag I received during Fashion Week. I immediately blogged about this extraordinary cleanser that left my skin gleaming. Imagining it was an esoteric, wildly expensive item, I was thrilled when I researched it and found it was $11.99 at Ulta. The next morning, I also used a sample of their Skin Plumping Gel which I also loved.
Ulta opened about a year ago relatively close to both my work and home. It is a spectacular hybrid between an Sephora and CVS. Here, brands like Smashbox and Dr. Brandt, share real estate with L'Oreal and Sally Hansen. Surprisingly, I never moved in, in fact, my trip to purchase Hada Labo Skin Plumping Gel Cream was only my second visit.
The lovely sales associates never heard of Hada Labo, but were determined to help me find it, either in store or online. It is a small line of products to begin with and happily we did find it stocked with the other skin care brands.
I have been on the hunt for a new serum, since my beloved Lumene Premium Beauty Serum is no longer readily available at retail. Hada Labo Skin Plumping Gel is described as a combination serum and moisturizer.
I tried using it without additional moisturizer, but found my skin felt a bit too taut. I do think it's a fabulous serum however and I immediately see the plumping benefits from their star ingredient, SHA; "Super Hyaulronic Acid".
Hada Labo is very concentrated, so whether it's their cleanser or their plumping gel, very little product is needed. I'm fairly sure I will be using
this jar for months.
Here is a bit more from about Hada Labo Skin Plumping Gel Cream from the Ulta website:
Lightweight and fast absorbing, this luxurious silky gel cream combines the skin perfecting power of a serum with the intense hydration of a moisturizer. With the highest concentration of Super Hyaluronic Acid in the Hada Labo Tokyo line, this deeply hydrating formula helps plump lines and wrinkles, leaving skin cushiony soft and smooth.
There are only 5 items in their entire skin care line, which in and of itself, is refreshing...Do we really need a separate lip, eye, neck, face and decollete cream???
My next pick will be Hada Labo's Anti-Aging Hydrator. I have the feeling I am going to like it just as much as my first two picks...and for $17.99 and a generous return policy, what do I have to lose???
I hope you will try them if you get the chance and let me know if you love them too.
I'm betting you will...
