Oh wow. I’ve been sitting on this draft for hours and yet I have not type anything down lol 😛
So, Hada Labo brought out two new AHA + BHA face wash and I got it a few months back. I have been desperately trying to used up my every other face wash so that I can open one of the Hada Labo AHA + BHA Face Wash to try. To be honest I have not tried their AHA + BHA cleanser before so you can understand why I’m so intrigued, especially when I have been receiving DMs on the Instagram on the difference between these two.
The Hada Labo AHA + BHA Face Wash comes in two variants – AHA + BHA Acne Control Face Wash and AHA + BHA Oil Control Face Wash. First thing first, both of the variants are formulated with the same Triple Anti-Pollution Formula to purify and protect the skin from environmental pollution. This is done by reducing the particles ability to adhere to the skin and also to form a protective barrier on the skin to shield against pollution damages. Then these face wash are formulated with Double Action Exfoliating Formula, whereas AHA (Glycolic Acid) and BHA (Salicylic Acid) in the formulation helped to soften skin, remove dead skin cells and restore its natural radiance overall.

As I don’t have acne skin, I decided to try the Oil Control version first instead. This one particularly was formulated with Oil Control Formula which has Alpine Plant Extract to help in controlling and balancing oil production on the skin. In a long run, it is supposed to help minimise large pores appearance as well. A little of the product goes a long way. It lathers so well and cleans the face thoroughly, stripping all the dirt and oil from the face. It doesn’t have any scent to it but the scent does reminds me of the previous Hada Labo Face Wash, only not as strong.
I have this cleanser in the house’s main bathroom so that mom could use it too and she love it. Last weekend I took it away to take a photo and she went searching high and low for it lol. Even though this is meant for oil control and mom doesn’t have oily skin, she said her skin doesn’t feels tight or dry after using.

The Acne Control on the other hand is infused with Wild Pansy Extract to combat pimples. Personally I have not used it yet nor do I have breakout to really tell you if that work on pimples. As I know many of you would be emailing me to ask that 😛
Okay now. Let’s talk about the cleanser texture. You must be warn that it is a runnier cleanser and the product tend to flows out of the nozzle even without you squeezing the tube. And it gets a bit messy at the nozzle tip. If you’re OCD freak like me you will freak out lol. My advise is, just tilt the tube facing down and let gravity do it’s work.
This is NOT the amount to use but just a small pea size. I am squeezing more out for you to see the cleanser. It is creamy and it tends to foams up a lot. A little goes a long way. This time I am serious!
Both variants come with a texture similar to the Bentonite Clay, which is a type of mineral clay from natural volcanic ash. This is added due to the substance’s high mineral content which would be beneficial as oil absorbent.
