Some time last year, I came upon this concept of using an exfoliating toner and chemical exfoliators. I started out using the Alpha-H Liquid Gold which I still use today, but I also read about how using a gentle exfoliating toner daily helps our skin cells turn over more quickly which generally means, better looking skin. So I went on my quest to find these “exfoliating toners” and it so happened that it was about this time that Hada Labo made available their Mild Peeling Lotion.
I spotted it at a Guardian pharmacy going at a promotional discount and picked it up to see how my skin would fare with it. It is called a Mild Peeling Lotion but essentially what this is, is a chemical exfoliating lotion. A very gentle one, but do note that it comes with its attendant precautions.
Hada Labo places this under the Tamagohada range which those of you familiar with Hada Labo will remember, consists of the popular AHA/BHA cleanser. I don’t deny the cleanser is a good one – friends love it! But I personally find it drying if used daily and it played merry hell with my sensitive hands. This lotion is its complementary product and it is at this point that I should pause for a moment to address the questions if this is a “toner” 😛
