Review: Glow up with HadaLabo's Kouji Treatment Essence

This is probably one of the higher end range among Hada Labo's skin care products, the Hada Labo Kouji Treatment Essence (Amazon | Shopee.MY). This 110ml bottle retails at RM120 but of course, I grab it during promo. Shopping in Malaysia be like sales 365 days a year, no kidding! Still a fan of this brand after all this years! I'm amazed how beauty brands are coming up with so many range for a dozen purposes. I have no idea how long have this been available in the market, last I checked they launched the lifting+firming and the blemish control range. Feeling so outdated! Yet at the same time, I have always been contented with my usual Innisfree or Had Labo toners to want to experiment on new ones.

What caught my attention was the minimal packaging, simple but cute bottle design but the highlight is definitely the main ingredient called "Kouji". It does smell like washed rice water with hint of sake that I'm liking!

Having been a regular with Hada Labo's toners, I was assuming it will take me 4-5 months to empty this bottle. But, guess what. I'm barely a month into using it and I'm halfway through! I'm trying to pump more gently lolwut. The difference with the regular toner bottle is the pump dispenser that as you can guess, doesn't do much ...

Still, I love how it is making my pores smaller and it's noticeable in just a few days of adding this into my beauty routine. I reckon it gives almost similar result when I tried SK-II minus being overly drying. According to my gal pal, beauty products with alcohol tends to be drying but I haven't had issues with this one. Note that I've got combination skin _ proof how applying tea tree oil doesn't give me flaky, dry skin.

 As I'm aging (lol!), I do hope that I can still maintain a firm skin and hopefully it will be two decades before the lines start showing! Speaking of aging, I just celebrated my birthday and my sis got me a cute pampering kit, the roller I had secretly wished to have but been delaying in purchasing them. So when I got it, I was happy. Only after I found out it was from her hahahaha
