Beauty Review: Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing UV Milk
Need a pick-me-up for your skin?
Try milk! Milk is not only good for consumption, but also great for your skin when applied topically.
It makes your skin glow. 🙂
Milk contains proteins that function like natural skin conditioners. They help the skin retain moisture so that our skin can stay silky and smooth.
Hence milk has often been deemed as the ideal ingredient for cosmetic preparations that are meant to cleanse and moisturize.
So when choosing beauty products, go for milk!
Clueless as to which is a good milk product?
Don’t fret as I’m about to introduce you one of the most power-packed milk beauty products I’ve known…
Hada Labo’s Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing UV Milk!
Launched in April this year, Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing UV Milk with SPF50 PA+++ is a 3-in-1 sun protection which offers these benefits – UV Protection, Hydration, and Make-Up Base.
With SPF50 PA+++ you are assured of high, broad-spectrum protection against UVA and UVB.
Like other products in the Hada Labo line, UV Milk reaches deep into the skin to moisturize the skin with three types of hyaluronic acid that lock in moisture for soft, supple and radiant skin.
As a make up base, cosmetics can glide easily on the smoother skin after applying it. The light texture makes it easy for an even application, and is quickly absorbed without stickiness.
The UV milk is gentle on skin, as it is free of artificial ingredients such fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol and colorant that may burden the skin. It also keeps the skin’s pH balanced, and is rigorously tested for low skin irritation.
Told you it’s power-packed.
I used the product for three consecutive days and this is what I think of it…
The first thing I noticed about the product is its thin and watery texture.
Its lightweight property makes the product really easy to apply on my face and large body areas evenly.
Beauty tip… How much sunscreen to apply for each area? Most people don’t apply enough sunscreen and this can result in unwanted sunburns. In theory, you should use approximately two milligrams of sunscreen per square centimeter of skin. In practice, this means applying two tablespoons of sunscreen to the exposed areas of the face and body – a 50-cent sized dollop to the face alone.
After applying, I think my skin absorbed the product almost immediately as the stickiness vanished almost instantly.
I performed a simple experiment. I applied UV Milk on one arm and a regular sunscreen on the other and this was what happened after 10 seconds.
It is pretty evident that UV milk disappeared into my skin and the regular sunscreen was still sitting on my skin looking shiny and dewy.
The regular sunscreen also left an unsightly white film on my arm, whereas UV milk seeped into my skin leaving no white cast nor residue. No sticky feeling afterwards too. Kudos to UV Milk!
The UV milk is not entirely odorless. It leaves a distinctive ‘plasticine’ smell upon application but the smell disappears after a couple of minutes.
Most sunscreens clog pores. Since I have acne-prone skin, my skin usually breaks out after I apply SPF lotions. The UV milk is light and non-greasy, so this time there was no pimple attack after using the product.
I also like the fact that it’s 3-in-1 as it makes my beauty routine much simpler. I usually apply tons of beauty products before I apply my make up such as toner, moisturizer, sunscreen and make up primer. These days, its only toner and Hada Labo’s SHA Moisturizing UV Milk!
Sun Protection Factor (SPF)
SPF 50 is pretty high for a make up base. With its high SPF, skin is now less susceptible to burns even after long hours in the sun!
No matter how high the SPF is, sunscreen needs to be reapplied every two hours, or more frequently especially after swimming or heavy perspiration. To prevent burns, sunscreen alone is not enough. Seek shade whenever possible, and wear sun-protective clothing, broad-brimmed hats, and UV-blocking sunglasses.
I thought it could be the top contender for sunscreens though I find it quite pricey for a drugstore sunscreen. It retails at Watsons at SGD19.90. Well, I guess its a worthy price to pay for its multiple benefits.
4.5 Honeyz crowns!
The Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing UV Milk SPF 50 PA+++ is priced at $19.90 for a 38ml bottle and it is available exclusively in Watsons.
