“One Drop Locks Up an Ocean” is the tagline for this product which is the best selling item from Hada Labo.
Key ingredient would be the Hyaluronic Acid and this lotion contains 3 types of that, namely Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Super HA & Nano HA. The different types of HA penetrates into the different levels of the skin and helps to nourish and moisturize the different levels.
Though, not marketed as a toner it seems to be used as one since directions are to apply after cleansing face. And there isn’t any other product in this line that is named as a “toner”.
The bottle looks battered because I’ve been using it for awhile and just bought the refill.
The refill was really easy to pour with no low chance of any spillage.
Here’s a drop on my hand. I use about 3-4 drops for both my face & neck. It’s a clear lotion and the consistency is thicker than a toner. It is to be applied onto palms and pat onto skin until absorbed which takes awhile. This product has no smell so if you prefer nice-smelling products (who doesn’t), this might not be for you as the “no-smell” can smell a little like the hospital or some disinfectant. Also, in the process of patting your face, the sticky feeling can get quite unpleasant. Once that is over, you will find your skin plumped and I’ve tried skipping my moisturizer a few times to test their claim of a “moisture locking shield” and so far it has held true.
I did realize that over time of continued usage, there seems to be a film of residue left, as if my skin can no longer absorb anymore.
