Review: Hada Labo Super Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizing UV Milk with SPF50 PA++

As my readers, you girls should know that I adore Hada Labo's products! Their famous 'One Drop Lock An Ocean' is not longer an unfamiliar term in the beauty world. I've also reviewed a few of their products here. And today I gonna review their latest new released product - Hada Labo SHA (Super Hyaluronic Acid) Moisturizing UV Milk with SPF50 PA++!! (That's a mouthful name O_o )  In short, it is better known as sunblock. =p

Talking about sun protection/ sunblock (which ever you prefer to call), I need to educate and stress my readers that you need to apply sun protection everyday!! Why?? Because the sun/UV rays are harmful to your skin!! Repeated exposure of unprotected skin may increase the risk of skin cancer, sunburn and other effects can include wrinkling, premature aging, and in time, an almost leathery appearance of the skin. You don't wanna look older than your age, don't you? I'll discuss the topic individually next time.

To be honest, I don't  have the tendency to apply sunblock until late of last year. One word - Lazy. Second - Oily. I couldn't help on the first reason but if you were to worry about the latter, there's always a solution. This new Hada Labo SHA Moisturizing UV Milk is the one. 

They say:
This is a multi purpose UV milk has 3‐in‐1 benefits of UV Protection, Hydration, and Make‐Up Base.
  • UV Protection: With SPF50PA+++, users can be assured of a high, broad-­‐spectrum protection against UVA and UVB.
  • Hydration: It reaches deep into the skin to moisturize the skin with three types of Hyaluronic Acid. It locks in moisture for a soft, supple and radiant skin all day.
  • Make-Up Base: It can glide easily on the smoother skin after applying it. The light, water like texture makes it easy for an even application, and is quickly absorbed without stickiness. The UV milk is transparent, leaving no white residues.

If you see the ingredients, it contained zinc oxide which provide very good broad spectrum UV protection and they are gentle enough for everyday use and rarely cause skin irritation. Like mentioned on all Hada Labo products, this UV milk is gentle on skin, as it is free of artificial ingredients such fragrances, mineral oil, alcohol and colorant that may burden the skin. It also keeps the skin’s pH balanced, and is rigorously tested for low skin irritation.


The 38ml white packaging are pretty small and sleek. The tip dispenser helps to control the amount of the product which you wanna use. You need to shake well and you could hear the "tak tak tak" sound like a ball rolling inside before squeezing it out.
Tips: This is another way for you to choose a good sunblock.


The texture of the sunblock is quite watery and smooth to blend in. Don't worry about the white color that might give you a white cast, it's light-weighted and it blends in to your skin nicely giving you a translucent finish.

My Say:
I really like this Hada Labo SHA Moisturizing UV Milk and I am very proud to say that I am on my way to my 2nd bottle now. (It was quite a while since they launched in Malaysia) This sunblock absorb very quickly to your skin and feel light-weighted that you don't feel like putting anything on upon application and I don't even realized that my face is much whiter - no white cast? =p

Look at the picture below for comparison.

Pardon me for a few acne
The thing I like about sunblock is no sticky feeling and no scent at all. I hate sunblock that give me sticky feeling and that awesomely smells- you know what i mean! (Banana boat, I am looking at you)
A little goes a long way, 50 cents coin of the products can spread all around my face and my neck (down towards my chest in a bit).

The best part, it has hydration properties!! At least it preps my skin well hydrated before I applied my BB cream/foundation on top. You know how cosmetics can be dry for your skin. I have a combination skin - dry at cheek, oily at T-Zone. Surprising about this sunblock is that I don't feel my face especially T-Zone getting oily towards the end of the day and my cheek is not even dry.

Rating: 4.3/5.0 (Me likey!! =D)

As I mentioned, it is already my 2nd bottle. So re-purchase is defintely yes. The only thing that I would hold me on is that 38ml maybe a too little for the steep for a drugstore. But it's definitely worth the cents as one bottle could last you at least 2.5 months for everyday application. ^_^

The Hada Labo SHA Moisturizing UV Milk is available exclusively in Watson at S$19.90/ MYR49.90. Visit Hada Labo Facebook Page for more updates and giveaways!! They'll be having sampling campaign soon too.   

I do have a few sunblock I would love to share and this is one of them. Do share me about your favorite sunblock as well!! =))

Cynthia Loh said...

You're welcome!! I love Hada Labo's products. Now I can't wait to try their BB cream. They do not carry BB Cream here yet :(

Cynthia Loh said...

Try this and let me know how do you find them ^^

Cynthia Loh said...

I learn to put my sunblock before my makeup because it can serve as a makeup base. It helps you blends your foundation smoother and easier.

Cynthia Loh said...

I will definitely do!! Care to share which sunblock are you using at the moment? BB cream does come with sun protection but it does depends on individual's need on how high the SPF she/he wanted. 

chiiseol said...

Hey there :) umm I have a very oily skin. And i can't tolerate even to product with just a bit of greasiness. So I just want to ask whether this product really have the watery consistency or maybe some slight oily. Because I've been dissapointed with many product that claimed they're not oily and such and when I tried it turn out to be oily for me..so umm yeah..thank you very much ;)

Does it contain the same capabilities whilst the iPhone, or maybe it is better suited then a iPhone?
