I bought the bottle of Hada Labo Astaxanthin Moist Lift Essence from Hong Kong. This one is not available in Singapore.
The concentrated orange essence has a smooth and soft texture. It doesn't smell nice. After applying it, my face feels real oily and sticky. It's not easily absorbed into the skin, got to rub for quite a while. I don't really like it for leaving my skin with an oily and shiny layer.
When I first started to use it, I'm really disappointed with it cos I don't see any improvement on my skin. But after continuous usage for about 2 weeks than my skin starts to look brighter. It's sad that it doesn't give my skin the lifting effect, I only feel a slight firmer cheeks that's all.
Since it's oily so I prefer to use it at night only. With daily usage, my face has gotten much brighter, well hydrated and glowing.
