Personally, I believe that treating my skin properly while it is at its prime can delay the aging process and most importantly, keeps gravity at bay. You can retain what you’ve got, but you can’t get back what you’ve lost. When skin has aged, it’s almost impossible to reverse its condition to its former glory, and that’s why it’s so important to start maintaining your skin while they’re still at their prime.
# – Hada Labo.
I’m a staunch believer in Hada Labo products (it’s Super Hyaluronic Acid or SHA really works!), and that’s why I’m so pleased that they’ve come out with the Hada Labo’s Retinol Lifting + Firming Range, which aims to deliver exceptional anti-aging results on a daily basis. Having recently entered my late 20s, I was already looking for new range of products that would be suitable for my hrmmmm, “less young” skin.
In conjunction with the launch of the Retinol Lifting + Firming Range, I was invited to a workshop to learn about this latest range of products from Hada Labo.
# – Testing out some of the Retinol Lifting + Firming products.
There, I learnt that they contain only the finest and purest ingredients without any unnecessary additives, colourant, alcohol, fragrances and mineral oils. Being a sufferer of atopic eczema (which means I have terribly sensitive skin), this was definitely music to my ears!
On top of that, Hada Labo was not kidding when it told us that this new range of products provide extreme nourishment and moisturisation for the skin.
It was almost magical seeing the richness and stickiness of the products upon application on the skin but after patting it on for a couple more seconds, the products vanished almost like it wasn’t applied in the first place. What’s left was just an evidently more supple, smooth skin! Fantastic!
# – Can you see the strands of Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Moisturizing Cream? Few seconds later, it’s gone and skin became super smooth!
At the end of the day, what convinced me about the effectiveness of this product was the skin hydration test.
# – My skin prior to applying any product from Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Range. It says 41.1% but it was still going up and stopped at 43.5%. I thought I was pretty hydrated and it won’t go up any further. I was wrong….
Then, after I’ve applied the products, I tested my skin again. The result was simply mind blowing!
# – Just check out the before & after. That part of my skin is more than half water! Incredible!
Without a doubt, I’m adopting this latest range of Hada Labo products, the fiery red Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Range. I am certain that this is what my maturing skin is looking for all these time.
# – Agelessness awaits me, woohoo!
The Hada Labo’s Retinol Lifting + Firming Range consists of 5 products, which are the Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Lotion, Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Moisturizing Milk, Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Moisturizing Cream, Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Essence and Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Facial Mask.

Day in and day out, I nourish my skin with the extremely hydrating Lotion, followed by the Moisturizing Milk, which works to smooth fine lines and reduce *gasp* wrinkles. They absorb so quickly and leave no greasy residue, which is a wonderful attribute.
I love how easy it is to apply as well, just squeeze a couple of drops and pat it all over the skin till dry.
# – Going through my daily skincare regiment with Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Range.
If I knew I were going to be in a dry and cold place though, instead of the Moisturizing Milk I use the Moisturizing Cream, which has a thicker formula for a much longer period of moisturisation.
I also use it on my neck twice daily because you know what they say…..they can tell your age by the look of your neck and hands.
# – The cream is great if you’re always in air-conditioned places. Absolutely non-greasy as well, which is really cool considering the richer consistency.
At night, I follow up with the Essence before going to bed. This is actually a new addition to my skincare regiment and I really do notice the difference.
For one, I feel that my skin stays hydrated even longer than before and I do get to wake up with supple skin, as though I had just applied moisturiser, it’s quite unbelievable.
It claims to protect against free radicals and improves skins’ elastin fibre leading to a firmer, more radiant skin and yes, I believe it wholeheartedly.
# – Love the pump bottle design of the Hada Labo Retinol Lifting + Firming Essence. Can you say “boing boing”?
And then comes my favourite weekly treat, which is using the Facial Mask. Super moist, super indulgent…I could just fall asleep wearing it. Upon removal of the facial mask, my skin would be reminiscent of a new born’s bottom!
# – I look forward to wearing the Facial Mask every week!
For most of my 20s, I had spared no thought on spending hundreds of Ringgits on expensive skincare that finished up really quickly as well. I knew anti-aging products would cost twice what I was already spending so I was hesitant to upgrade my skincare to more age appropriate ones.
# – I was a huge fan of the original Hada Labo products but now I’m a brand new fan of the Retinol Lifting + Firming range.
The picture above is of a make-up less (almost) 27 year old woman that gets out in the sun everyday to walk her dog after using the products for a couple of weeks. Self praise is no praise, but I honestly think my skin has never looked better. Hello, no wrinkles!
Thanks to Hada Labo, it doesn’t need to cost so much to maintain and upkeep my maturing skin. Everything is priced from RM55.90 to RM75.90 and are available only exclusively at all Guardian pharmacies nationwide.
You know what to do if you want to unlock the gateway to beautiful, ageless looking skin ;)
