In Japanese skin-care, it is not a toner or astringent that comes after cleansing their skin. They use facial lotion which is the first step toward moisturizing your skin. Lotion is an essential part of skin care among the Japanese because well-moisturized skin is the canvas upon which you’ll apply your other products, like moisturizer, and makeup.
I’ve been using some of the Hada Labo products for quite some time now and I really like the effects of it on my skin. It’s clearer and smoother, plus it is very simple to use. You don’t need to follow a number of steps like other skin care regimen. You just need to use it to help hydrate your skin, and to have that soft, bouncy and youthful look.
