Hada Labo 3D Shape Reconstruction Gel 肌研 極潤 3D形状復元ゲル

What is this Product? (What it claims) 
An all-in-one gel with the following 5 functions so it's a complete skin care routine in one easy step:
※ Lotion
※ Milk/emulsion
※ Essence
※ Cream
※ Pack

It features a blend of 3D hyaluronic acid, hyaluronic acid and Resveratrol EX to retain water contents in the skin; moisturize; nourish and firm up your skin.

As a regime, the gel will lift, firm and hydrate to visibly reveal younger looking skin.

It is a 3D shape reconstruction gel that will be restored quickly once you make contact with it. See the super cool video clip and commercial here to see what I mean by that!

Review: 
It's been almost a year since I purchase this product during my Japan Tokyo trip in October 2013! At the time it was recently launched and the product display was SUPER cool so I had to purchase it!

It is one of the 5 Gokujun products in the range, actually I tried this one before I purchased the UV White Gel one which was reviewed previously.

Starting with the packaging, just like the UV White Gel, it is secured with their packaging so you know right away whether it has been opened or not. Love it!

This is one of the coolest features and I think at the time (last year), it was ground-breaking in the beauty industry. Notice the above picture, even if you dig through it, it goes back to original state! Super cool!

I use it after washing my face, after applying toner/lotion to my face. I use it day and night and it's extremely moisturizing!!! 

It feels like jelly at first, but then it like melts like a gel texture. When applied to face, it feels like I'm mushing jello onto my skin. After massaging it into my skin, it's super moisturizing. It leaves a sticky residue and it eventually feels like a very moisturized skin texture. For the rest of the day, my skin have a very healthy glow. I have no rubbery residue so it made it perfect to apply under make up.

ps, love the ingredients as it has tons of hyaluronic acid (my personal favourite ingredient) 

Overall: ♥♥♥♥♥ 
Product: 5/5 ♥ Love it! Super moisturizing, noticed some fine lines missing already. Great for dry seasons!
