Review: Hadasui Toner

Do these look like bottles of mineral water? They're bottles of Hadasui, a skin-refreshing toner/lotion by Shiseido. There are 4 types:

Blue - for oily skin
Pink - moist, for dry skin
Green - minty with menthol, for men
White - "Suppliment-in" with 14 ingredients, collagen and amino acids. Jelly-type liquid.

They're available in smaller spray bottles but I bought these 400ml bottles because they're more value-for-money. I bought these in Beijing, but you can easily find them online. They are multi-purpose lotions that can be used as facial toners, just to refresh your body, or as an after-sun cooling lotion. 

Ingredients (from
Hadasui Blue: Water, DPG, Rosemary extract, Sodium citrate, Sodium metaphosphate, Citric Acid, BG, Phenoxyethanol, Paraben

Hadasui Pink: Water, Bg, DPg, PEg-30, Glycerin, Raspberry extract, PEG-60 hydrogenated castor oil, Trioctanoin, Polyglyceryl diisostearate-2, Sodium citrate, Citric Acid, Sodium metaphosphate, Phenoxyethanol, Paraben

As a facial toner, with my oily but dehydrated skin, I much prefer the blue Hadasui, because it's lighter in texture. It's a nice, no-frills, basic toner. The pink one, despite its "moisture", is also surprisingly light, but I still prefer the blue, because the pink leaves a film on my skin. When applied with a cotton pad, they're both really good at removing traces of cleanser or dead skin cells. They're quite economical too - a 400ml bottle cost about S$12, which lasts me a little more than 2 months. 

Hadasui Blue: 9/10 
Hadasui Pink: 7/10
