miu miu says:

can you compare the hada labo hyaluronic acid lotion with the hada labo premium hyaluronic acid lotion? ???? would be lovely to hear your opinion ♡♡♡♡

RinoaHearlty says:

I’m gonna be soo broke after buying these.. I just need alllll of them! 😀

h0ppa13 says:

between the kose and the missha… which one did you like better??

Louise Giguère says:

I just discovered your channel. The information is great. I think as I need to replace the products, I will try Asian skin care. They look great and the prices are very competitive. There are many bloggers that prepare boxes in collaboration with a distributor /company. If you have the opportunity, it would be great to have a box with the basic Asian skin care. It would be a great introduction to Asian products. Once again thank you for this great information.

Hey, thanks for all the great vids!

Question: how come you seem to love the moisturizing stuff (especially when you talk about Hada Lobo), but don’t really talk about anti-aging (except in I think a serum or toner video). Is it not a concern for you, or does moisturizing prevent wrinkles just as well or even better than explicitly anti-aging ingredients? I noticed that Hada Lobo has an anti-aging line, but you seem to prefer the Gokyujun line. Your skin looks really youthful, so I don’t know if I should just copy you or go for the anti-aging label.

Trang Nguyen says:

Recently I bought Hada labo Moisturizing Milk and Moisture cream but both of them disappointed me 🙁 Am I the only one doesn’t get along with those products? :((
I read so many good reviews and things turned out that my skin doesn’t accept the milk or the cream. They leaves a very sticky and oily layer on my skin after applying. And my skin produce so much more oil through out the day.
I am so upset T.T

PamMilly says:

I know this video is older, but have you tried the Etude House One Shot Sherbet Cleanser?

Emilene Santiago says:

I can’t imagine how much skincare & makeup items you have in your place :)) i bet it’s like a store already hahaha

Natalie Mirolo says:

This is my second time watching this gothamista. It’s really helping me decide what to buy while on holiday in Japan. X

Linda Wilmarth says:

What do you think about using coconut oil in place of the banila zero it? I’ve been using it before my cleanser and it seems to be ok. 🙂 thanks new subbie here.

meggi chan says:

your channel and the content is amazing thank you so much !

Nirvana La says:

I don’t know why, but in Indonesia Korean products are SOO expensive that it’s like highend price

Anna Mokrushina says:

Hi from Moscow! Have you ever tried other Hada Laba products? I feel like everything else except gokujyun is a fail( I’ve tried red anti-aging line – it felt like a glue on my face, which peels off right away. White moisturizer with 3 types of HA dried down leaving a thin film that cracked.
maybe I’m doing something wrong?

Azra Jabeen says:

Hi, thanks for the video. I am Indian, how can I get these products here???

The Wonderful Weirdo says:

You seriously deserve more subscribers! I am loving your videos so far! 🙂

Jaynie Stanley says:

Thank u for really doing ur homework. I find myself trusting what u say n offer to my skin care.

Reime Sadia says:

Haha, its pronounced like ‘Soom thirty-seven!’
LOL love the way you said it though! 😉


What do you think of jojoba oil as a skin care option?

Andrea Rosamilia says:

Thanks a lot for those infos and nice video.
I have a very sensitive and dry skin and also want avoid silicons paravens and parfumed products. W
What would you suggest me?

babygroove says:

your skin looks amazing

LM m says:

Hi there, I tried the Hada Labo lotion and it made me break out, do you believe the “light” version would be more helpful for my combination skin in a very humid and hot weather? thank you 🙂

Marty McFly says:

You are STUNNING!!!!

cheerios4canaries says:

The Banila Co Miss Water and Mr Oil SLM looks so interesting! Too bad it’s expensive lol

The Nomad says:

Just discovered your channel! Now I have to go back and watch all your videos 🙂 Great reviews, great content.

Thiên An says:

i listened to your advice and purchased the Hada Labo gokujuyn lotion and guess what? YOU’RE SO DAMN RIGHT!!!!!! it makes my dry flaky skin so so smooth and soft and just, the best!! you’re my lifesaver, love you xoxo

Kay Ro says:

I was excited to see my cleanser on board your haul. I am on my third Clean It Zero cleanser (and I use the big 180ml version). I love it because it doesn’t run down my arm like other oil/water cleansers and it gets off even the most stubborn waterproof mascaras(even Japanese mascaras are no prob). I no longer use separate eye/lip remover because this guy covers it all. It’s a must try!

Saabaa Khan says:

wow your skin is so beautiful and you’re so beautiful i have a brown spots on my face could you please let me know what kind of products be good for me my skin is normal. please reply to me thank you beautiful lady

Mai Xia Lao says:

I love watching your videos on skincare and I’ve been wanting to try Korean’s skincare products.. but I don’t know where to start. I recently had a baby and my skin has changed, its extremely dryer now and my cleanser isn’t working anymore (L’Bri brand) so I need a little more direction on which products to try..

Michelle T says:

Just watched this and was wondering if Hada Labo sunscreen is chemical or physical?

Alexandra M says:

I close my eyes and pretend Dr. Christina Yang is a youtuber everytime i watch herXD

bind malhot says:

Hi, I love your channel. I have a question to ask. Please let me know is Hada Labo Gokujyun Lotion is like a serum?..When I should that after Tonner?…And when we should use Hada Labo Gokujyun Moisture Mik?…I want to buy these products. Witting fro your response.

earlybirdie03 says:

Holy crap. Your skin reminds me of an egg–like a smooth, unbroken, and harmoniously shaped oval.

Sarrah says:
