First Aging Care Line : Labo Labo Super-Moist (5Hx5C)

Launching their first aging care line, Labo Labo introduces their latest SUPER-MOIST series that contains 5 TYPES of Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen respectively, as well as EGF and 3 Domestic plan ingredients!

My eyes lit up when I first saw this : 5H x 5C 
(Which means 5 TYPES of Hyaluronic Acid and 5 TYPES of Collagen)


Why am I so excited???


Hyaluronic acid is seriously good for your skin, tried and tested!!

Extracted from Google :
"Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring polysaccharide (carbohydrate) in the human body. It’s present in large amounts in the spaces between skin cells, where it provides moisture, plumpness, firmness and suppleness to the skin."

As we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin diminishes.
On the contrary, babies have dewy, plump and smooth skin as they are born with high levels of hyaluronic acids.
To reverse the effects of aging of our skin, we need to restore our skin's hyaluronic acid levels so that our skin will look fresher and more supple.

The 5 types of Hyaluronic Acids that this Labo Labo Super-Moist series contains are:
- Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid
- Acetyl Hyaluronic Acid
-Hyaluronic Acid Hydroxypropyltrimonium
- Hyaluronic Acid Dimethyl Silanol Hyaluronate
- Sodium Hyaluronate

Delivering moisture to the epidermis layer of our skin, plumping it up and refining it, these products maintains moisture in our skin over long periods of time and protects the surface of our skin.

2) It contains 5 TYPES OF COLLAGEN!

Do you know that collagen is responsible in giving our skin elasticity, strength to our hair and it also acts as a connective tissue that holds everything inside us in place??

Extracted from Google :
"Collagen is a substance that is naturally produced by the body. However, the production of this substance diminishes as people grow older. The results of the low production include wrinkles, thinning skin and brittle hair among others. There are a number of collagen supplements available in the market that can restore the amount of collagen in the body. Many individuals use collagen supplements to reduce lines or wrinkles."

Making up 30% of the total protein in our bodies and 70% of the protein in our skin, collagen levels declines with age and our lifestyle factors, as well as decreases our bodies' abilities to produce/make collagen.

Restoring the collagen levels in our skin can be made possible by taking in collagen supplements as well as the use of correct skincare products to make sure that we age gracefully and beautifully.

The 5 types of Collagens that this Labo Labo Super-Moist series contains are:
- Hydrolyzed Collagen
- Water-soluble Collagen
- Succinyl Atelo Collagen
- AMPD-isostearoyl Hydrolyzed Collagen
- Hydroxypropxl Hydrolyzed Collagen

Filling up the epidermis layer of our skin with moisture and plumping it up giving it elasticity and resilience, I believe this is one of the series that I am looking forward to use/depend on as I am already 25 this year.... (omgosh I'm 5 years away from being 30?!?!)
The 5 different types of collagen also helps to trap moisture in our skin for a longer period of time, further refining it!


With key ingredients like 100% plant-based soap derivied from the palm tree as a cleansing ingredient, EGF which normalizes our skin's turnover, 3 types of domestic plants (brown algae/glucosylceramide/millet seed extracts) as the moisterizing ingredients as well as the 5Hx5C that I mentioned above, it cleanly removes makeup and dirt in just a SINGLE WASH!

It appears to be in a pearly white form and upon lathering....

It surprised me by not foaming up so much - the creamy foam texture actually helps give the skin a clean finish!

It has a very very light orange scent to it and this product is said to contain no artificial fragrance/colouring, no mineral oils and no parabens!

Love it for it's ability to combine 2 steps of makeup removal into just one simple step of washing! :D



Consisting of Sesaflash (from sesame seeds) which helps give skin elasticity, Rosefruit Extract as an antioxidant ingredient, 5Hx5C (as mentioned above), EGF to normalize skin's turnover and also 3 types of domestic plants (brown algae/glucosylceramide/millet seed extracts) as the moisterizing ingredients, this product has got to be my favourite!

Why so??

 1) I adore the packaging.
I do!
It comes in a really nice bottle that when you squeeze lightly, one or two drops of the lotion comes out and it's actually ALL THAT YOU NEED!
A little of it goes a suuuuuper long way!

2) It is slightly runny and does not smell like anything - no scent at all literally, giving me that
"Ahh this is safe to use!" kinda feeling hahaha!

3) It dries off to a wonderful and light finish.
I loooooove this so so much that I wear it under my makeup and I genuinely feel that it holds my makeup really well till the end of the day!!

4) It gives me dewy and fresh-looking skin.
When I apply it at night, I can't stop looking at my face the next morning as it looks really fresh and dewy and. PLUMPED UP, like a baby's!

No kidding! :D

Permeating my skin with it's fulfilling amount of moisture, it gives me fresh, soft and supple skin that I've always hoped for, which has now turned into a reality for me! :D



With Camelia Flower Extract that gives our skin elasticity, Ceracute to lift up the skin, 5Hx5C (as mentioned above), EGF to normalize skin's turnover and also 3 types of domestic plants (brown algae/glucosylceramide/millet seed extracts) as the moisterizing ingredients, this product promises to beat the first signs of aging!

It comes in a gel-paste like formula that works well as a moisteriser, toner, serum, whitening cream and even makeup base! (gasp!)

I'm not a big fan of it's packaging but it's accounted for with a spatula provided to get the product out for hygiene purposes.

There's also a light orange scent to this product and after application, I realise it doesn't dry off like how the lotion does.

It sits on my skin and I honestly feel it is too thick for my skin as I have combination-oily skin.
I do feel that it does help dry skin really really well as friends around me with dry skin are raving about how this product works wonders for them.

So.... I decided to pass this over to my Mum that I feel might benefit her better than myself :D



Call me sua-ku (blur) but I really did not know that UV Cream in Japan means sunscreen! :P
This, among the entire series, is ranked No.2 in my opinion, right after the Super-Moist Lotion!

Let's start with the key ingredients first :

It consists of  Mandarin Orange Peel Extract which helps make the skin clear and bright, 5Hx5C (as mentioned above), EGF to normalize skin's turnover and also 3 types of domestic plants (brown algae/glucosylceramide/millet seed extracts) as the moisterizing ingredients.

Again, this has a light orange scent and I was pretty surprised that it doesn't contain that overpowering "sunblock" smell that usually turns me away.

I know I know, the size of this product looks.... small.
But a little teeeeeeny bit of it goes a really long way!

It's of a milky texture that goes onto the skin really nicely and I love how fresh-faced I look when I just apply this and dust some loose powder all over my face.

Again, love the packaging and how much thought was given into the detail on the opening whereby it helps make sure you don't get too much product out of this little tube!

It is gentle and feels comfy on the skin and can be used daily to help promote elasticity and resilience of the skin, treating dryness and dark spots at the same time!
Me loveeeeee! 


I have to emphasize once more that all of these products DO NOT CONTAIN :


Do give these products a try for their unbeatable price as well as being the first of it's kind in Japan to contain a luxurious combination of 5Hx5C,
5 types of Hyaluronic Acids as well as 5 types of Collagens!

For me, I really really adore the fresh and dewy finish the Super-Moist Lotion gives me and I can't do without it , day or night!
