There’s glass skin, honey skin, and chok chok skin–but have you heard of mochi mochi skin? Meet Hada Labo, Japan’s No. 1 facial lotion. Finally available in the Philippines.  The brand is known for providing intense hydration to the skin by harnessing the power of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance naturally occurring in the body that attracts and binds water. By the way, hada means skin and labo means laboratory.

Mochi skin is Japan’s version of Korean’s glassy dewy skin. They also call it mochi hada or ice cake-skin, skin with a plump and bouncy feel. Though we don’t hear much about it, basic Japanese skin care consists of double cleansing, hydrating with a lotion, putting on serum treatments, moisturizing, and of course sun protection. Sheet masks are used every other day.

In Japanese skincare routine, facial lotions are used before the moisturizer and after the toner. For those who do not apply toner after cleansing, the lotion adds a light layer of moisture that serves as a base for the richer products applied later.


The Japanese brand actively infuses four types of HA to fully hydrate skin from the surface to inner skin layers. It makes our skin significantly soft, smooth, and supple. The products contain no unnecessary additives to harm the skin. There are no mineral oils, no colorants, no fragrance, and no alcohol.
