When I came to Tokyo, I didn't bring with me a lot of skin care products. I knew that it wasn't necessary since Japan is known for their amazing skin care products.
The drugstores here in Tokyo are huge. There are soo many beauty products available. There are some popular brands like Shiseido, Bioré or Hada Labo, and also a lot of products that aren't really known in Europe.
On most of the products the description is written in japanese. I can't read all the kanji signs, so I just picked the products randomly.
I came across this product because there was written on the packaging that it was a bestseller in Japan. It really got my attention and I bought it.
I used it for a week without knowing which brand it was. I only knew it was a lotion because of the consistency.
Finally I decided to decipher the description on the packaging. I found out that it was from the brand Hada Labo. I purchased it for 880 円. The bottle contains 170ml fluid.
I already heard about this brand back in my hometown. I wanted to purchase it back then online, but then I decided to wait until I come to Japan.

My face feels always really hydrated after applying it. It absorbs
really fast in the skin. It leaves a fresh feeling behind and my skin
feels really good.
I really like the consistency because it's not to fluid nor is it to thick. It's really great to apply it like that.
How to apply
I apply it always after cleansing my face, twice a day in the morning and evening. I first massage it into my hands, then tap it slowly on my entire face. I don't rub it on my face.
