[REVIEW] Hadalabo Gokujyun Cleansing Oil

Friday, July 27, 2018

Hi, everyone!

I'm sure most of you have heard, maybe even tried, products from the infamous Japanese brand called Hada Labo. Everyone seems to be raving about how great their products are, especially from people with dry/dehydrated skin because Hada Labo products tend to be moisturizing. Well, I happened to tried their Gokujyun Cleansing Oil! Who's ready for a review?!

This is what the packaging looks like:

You can tell from the bottle that I've been loving this cleansing oil! I only have a few amount left before repurchasing!

Ingredients taken from label:
Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Triethylhexanoin, Sorbeth-30 Tetraisostearate, PEG-20 Glyceryl Triisostearate, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Water, Dextrin Palmitate/Ethylhexanoate, BHT, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate, Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate.

The ingredients listed are formulated without paraben, sulfate, alcohol and fragrance. It contains olive oil, jojoba oil, and also packed with Sodium Acetylated Hyaluronate (also known as super hyaluronic acid) that acts to retain moisture deeply into the skin. Super Hyaluronic Acid also claims to exceed the ability of hyaluronic acid to retain and attract moisture into the skin. For more information regarding super hyaluronic acid, you can read it on their website.

In terms of the consistency, this cleansing oil is very watery and lightweight as you can see from the swatches. When you pour the oil onto your skin, it the oil will be very runny. You will only need 1 to 2 pumps of the oil to clean your whole face!

To test the ability of this cleansing oil, I've swatched some makeup products on my hand.
From L-R: foundation, bronzer, highlighter, waterproof mascara, benetint, eyeliner.

 Using 1 pump of the cleansing oil.

After a few seconds of massaging the hand, and then rinsing with water.
As you can see, the stain of benetint is still visible. I can't get it off with only cleansing oil, I have to use an eye and lip makeup remover to completely get it off. Otherwise, all of the other makeup swatches are gone.

So, I think this is a good cleansing oil! It can wipe off almost all makeups, even the waterproof one. The only drawback here is that this cleansing oil couldn't get off any makeups that leave a stain, like benetint. 

I love this cleansing oil! It removes makeup really well, and it doesn't clog my pores. It feels very lightweight on the skin, easy to rinse, and I'm so glad that due to the watery texture, a little bit of the oil goes along the way. You will only need 1 to 2 pumps of the oil to clean your face, so 200 mL of this cleansing oil will last pretty long. I purchased this one at an Asian market in downtown Seattle for $18 about 2 months ago, and I still have about 30 mL of the oil. I used this oil everyday, even when I'm not wearing makeup because I still think double cleansing is a crucial part in my night time skincare routine. It does make a huge difference. I also noticed that I didn't get any breakouts from using this, my skin reacted nicely! And as everyone else has suggested, it doesn't leave my skin dry and tight after using, rather it makes my skin feel soft and moisturized! Hence, I think this product is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. It doesn't contain harmful ingredients and is moisturizing!

Rate: 4.5/5
Repurchase? Yes!

Anyway, have you guys tried this cleansing oil or products from Hada Labo? I'd like to know what you guys think! I'm considering to try other products from this brand :)
