When I reviewed the Hada Labo Tamagohada face wash a couple of weeks back, I showed you the foaming face wash that I got from Singapore. Well, I saw these on the shelves at a local Guardian store and I’m told that here in Malaysia for a limited time. This is “limited edition” here i.e. its available for a limited period only. Its not “Limited Edition” in the sense of not being in production anymore, if you get my drift. So this is a good time to tell you what I think of the self-foaming version.
How does the pump version compare to the tube version? For me, its identical in terms of performance and the primary difference is its ease of use. So if you’re looking for a complete review of the product, please read my earlier review of the Hada Labo Tamagohada face wash. Its fully applicable to this foaming face wash.
In terms of performance, instead of having to squeeze out the cream, and lather it before applying, all you need is one pump of the soft foam to wash your face. Faster to use. I love how soft and thick the foam is and it cleans my skin a treat.
However, after using both the cream cleanser and the self-foaming cleanser, I think there is a very marginal difference between the two.
I personally feel that the cream cleanser leaves my skin feeling smoother and less dry than the self-foaming cleanser. I’m not quite sure why. Perhaps the ingredients are a little different. In fact, even the skin on my hands are also feeling and looking a little dry now, and peeling. Having used both, I prefer the cream version, even if it means an extra step in having to lather up the cream before applying to the face.
The retail price in Malaysia is RM39.90/160ml and this is available exclusively at Guardian pharmacies while stocks last.
Are you swayed to purchase this because of the self-foaming element? I must confess to a love for self-foaming cleansers which was the reason I picked it up in the first place. But unusually for me, I prefer using the cream version of this cleaner instead. How about you?
Hada Labo Tamagohada AHA/BHA Self-Foaming Face Wash is available at Guardian pharmacies in Malaysia while stocks last at RM39.90/160ml and is available at Watson’s pharmacies in Singapore at S$14.90 as a permanent range.
