Hada Labo Hydrating Facial Cleanser Review

Hada Labo’s hydrating facial cleanser is my new favorite cleanser. I’ve been using this for about 9 months and am on my 4th bottle. It has replaced the Free & Clear liquid cleanser as my daily facial cleanser but I keep that as a back up and use it as a body wash every day.


pH Level: 5.5

Mia’s review:  I love that the Hada Labo cleanser is a bit foamy yet is still hydrating. Almost a year ago I was told by an aesthetician that my skin was dehydrated. So I made a lot of changes and because I made a lot of changes at one time, I don’t know which product was dehydrating my skin. I feel like this cleanser hydrates my dry cheeks yet cleanses my oily T-zone effectively.

I also use this to clean my makeup brushes. I used to use a specific makeup brush cleanser. But I once washed a foundation brush twice with brush cleanser and I could still feel foundation on the brush. Using this cleanser cleaned made the brush completely clean so now I use it instead of buying a second product for brushes.

Update Feb 2019: I still like this cleanser a lot and always have a bottle of it around even if I don’t use it everyday. I make sure to use it on days when I feel like my face needs to be thoroughly cleaned (i.e., after wearing make-up). And maybe because of the opaque white color, I think it is more hydrating then the translucent or clear cleansers.
