Review: Juju Aquamoist Hyaluronic Acid Lotion, Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist.

The whole hyaluronic acid hype in skin care products started just after I left home, which made me feel rather left out =( I’ve been wanting to try ’em products for ages but Mum’s been the one pulling out all the stops as she thinks they are a waste of money. =p 
I have since tried Hada Labo, which I sneakily bought at Changi Airport’s Watsons which broke me out rather badly, I must admit (oh dear, I can see Mum going ‘serves you right!’) and it has since put me off giving these ‘new’ Japanese brands a go…… Until recently.
My really bad breakout prompted a good Japanese friend of mine to ask if I wasn’t eating healthily or I changed my skin care routine. (I was giving the Origins Make a Difference range a go at that time) I casually mentioned I recently started using a new range of skin care but haven’t changed my diet at all! 
She then went on saying my skin looked really dry whereas I on the other hand felt my skin was greasy (due to the moisturizer, perhaps?) so she brought me these two toners the very next day and asked me to give them a go! 
I initially said no because I’m terrified of any hyaluronic acid-related products no thanks to my Hada Labo nightmare but she just shoved them into my hands and INSISTED I give them a go. 
Thank goodness for lovely friends like A! My skin condition is a lot better now that I’ve used these two products over a month now! 
Juju Aquamoist’s Lotion is said to be similar to Hada Labo’s where the Hada Labo lotion is more viscous whereas Juju’s is more runny. Application wise, I simply apply some lotion onto a cotton pad and then apply it to my face in patting motions. I enjoy the patting the lotion into my skin because it gives out a very nice cooling effect. =p 
A mentioned the Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist can be used before Juju’s Lotion as a moisturizing boost OR it can be used alone as a toner. 
I normally use the Mist as a toner in the morning because I do not like putting too many products on my skin first thing in the morning =) 
Or you can see it as I’m just too lazy to pat the lotion in. =p 


I find these products go very well together as my face is more moisturized and comfortable now! Also, I’m not suffering from any breakouts at the moment *touches wood* which is really good seeing I have such fussy skin =p 
Juju Aquamoist Lotion Rating: 5/5
Sana Hadanomy Collagen Mist Rating: 5/5

    oooo… Glad to hear that these products work for you. I, on the other hand, never dared to venture to other skincare >.< Have been using Clinique's 3 step system ever since I was 12.

    You should give (at the very least) Sana's Collagen Mist a go! I did use Clinique's range when I was about 14 but the moisturizer broke me out! I still use their cleanser (because it lasts ages and is quite reasonable) and their clarifying lotion (occasionally) as it's quite drying for me. Don't you find Clinique's clarifying lotions dry your skin out with their extremely high alcohol content?

    Hm, interesting. I suspect the Hada Labo lotion to break me out, too, so maybe Juju should be my next try. (Unless I really just can't bear Hyaluronic Acid. >.<)Maybe your friend was right and your skin is oily-dry, i.e. dehydrated and thus producing more oil. Complicated skin sucks, huh? >.<

    Hello Julia! I somehow feel Juju has less Hyaluronic Acid in it (less viscous texture) but I'm not sure as I can't read the ingredient list! Haha yes complicated skin sure does suck! =( Thank you again for the links! <3

    Actually, I need the high alcohol content. My face is as oily as a freakin' oil spill. It is equivalent to the one in the Mexican Gulf. ^.^

    Aiyoh Hanny! I'm pretty sure your skin isn't THAT oily! =p My skin used to be really really oily too, which prompted Mum to say'Wah your face so oily can Char Koay Teow' T__T But I think age's catching up with me and my skin's not as oily as it used to be! =(
