Hello, my lovelies,
summer is the U.K. this year has been amazing so far but you know the sun means UV rays which mean damage, pigmentation, dehydration, sunspots and other nasty stuff and nobody got time for that.
So today I wanna introduce you to a lesser known product of Japanese origin, Gokojyun Premium: a toning lotion containing 5 different types of hyaluronic acid.
I came across this lotion a few months back on Amazon and decided to give it a try but being overwhelmed by all the products I have I ended up using it only a couple of time rediscovering it again last month and loving it since then
WHAT’S IN IT: 5 different types of hyaluronic acid and glycerin
- Sodium Acetyl Hyaluronate
- Sodium Hyaluronate
- Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid
- Sodium Hyaluronate Crosspolymer
- Hydroxypropyltrimonium Hyaluronate
Now in terms of ingredients, there is nothing groundbreaking here but somehow together these ingredients leave your skin feeling extremely supple, smooth and radiant.
HOW TO USE IT: instructions on the bottle are in Japanese but browsing and watching a few videos I realised it’s best to be used as a toner. A few drops (the consistency is gel-like) applied on the face and then pat into the skin. Let it absorbed for a few minutes and follow with the rest of your skincare. I do use it around my eyes and eyelids with no problem.
WHO IS IT FOR: there are two versions of this products and I believe this one is the more ‘antiageing’ one designed for slightly drier skins. combination skins would benefit from this too.
It retails for around 11 quid and the bottle is pretty big meaning it will last you quite a long time.
CONCLUSION: If you are looking for a hydrating toner, if you are a fan of hyaluronic acid and if you are intrigued by oriental skincare this is the product for you. It does the job, it doesn’t cost the earth and it really does leave your skin looking smoother and more hydrated. In terms of ingredients, it tends to be a one ingredient kind of product and I do believe your skin needs more but I say give it a try.
