REVIEW: SOC Hyaluronic Acid Skin Lotion










What is this Product? (What it claims)
Moisturizing hyaluronic acid "SOC hyaluronic acid skin lotion 500ml" contains glycerin and skin toner. Rich texture penetrates to the skin comfortably. it keeps your skin smooth and moisturized. Contains no scent and free of artificial coloring agent, it is fragrance free. It does not contain alcohol. The product promises to keep the skin moist and prevents dryness/roughness to occur. It can be used for the face as well as the body and neck.

Note 1: Asian Skincare usually uses the term “Skin Lotion” for the term Toner.
Note 2: For those who are unfamiliar with Hyaluronic Acid, I will try to explain it a bit from what I know. Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a natural substance found in our very own bodies through the foods we eat!! but we begin to loose that as we age. HA enables our bones and tissues in our bodies to retain moisture, it also keeps our skin smooth, elastic, and firm.

Directions of Use
Pour some onto your hand or soak your cotton ball and pat on your skin for it to absorb. Keep patting until skin absorbs the skin lotion entirely.

I couldn't find a link for this at sasa.com so I'm assuming they don't carry this there.
I purchased this product during my trip to Japan, I found it in many drugstores so I gave it a try.
It was quite difficult to find this online, but I did find a site which sells the item. See Here.
Please note that, I have never purchased from this website before, it is just for your reference.

Review:
For the past two weeks I have been using SOC Hyaluronic Acid Skin Lotion (toner) as a part of my skin care and I see the changes immediately. Most toners I use prior this this product leaves my skin a dry or tightening feeling. Or sometimes, they have an awful smell or stings the eyes. This product is fragrance free, and contains no alcohol which is probably why I do not get the tightening feeling. My skin is very moisturized after. The patting motion when applying the product protects my skin because I’m not rubbing my skin. By rubbing, your skin can be irritated. I also love the fast absorbency this product is able to offer. My skin felt very elastic again, gave me great hydration, and some of my pimple scar was removed too. HA truly helped me regenerate much much better. When it comes to the price, I believe this is worth every penny. Previously, I was using SK-II Classic Care Facial Treatment Essence. Almost all Asian Magazine will have at least one SKII Ad on it. Sold by their marketing, I purchased one too. (haha) In comparison in price, SOC skin lotion is definitely much cheaper. The bottle of SK-II contains 215ml retailing at about $120 USD, while the bottle of SOC Hyaluronic Acid Skin Lotion contains 500ml retails at about $10USD. 12x the price, and double the size.. you gotta be crazy if you dont think that's a DEAL!

Overall: ♥♥♥♥♥ 
Product: 5/5 ♥ Fits with description perfectly
Packaging: 3/5 ♥ Very plain. However, their new packaging is very appealing though!
Price: 5/5 ♥ When compared to SKII, I think the price is great. Compared to market, I still believe it's great considering it has so much to offer.
