 NEW 3-in-1 Arbutin Whitening Perfect Gel for fair, bright and bouncy skin! Fast absorbing 
and non-oily in texture, this whitening gel boosts 3-in-1 skincare product benefits of Essence + Moisturiser + Paper Mask!

Hada Labo 3-in-1 Arbutin Whitening Perfect Gel contains 3 trinity efficacious ingredients that penetrate within.

Some of the star ingredients: 

-  Natural Arbutin: High concentration levels at 3% of Japanese pharmaceutical-level Arbutin to offer effective whitening results. Enhances skin fairness and targets dark spots.

-  Efficacious Vitamin C Concentrate: Proven anti-oxidant enhances collagen production, inhibits the appearance of dark spots and reawakens the appearance of dull skin.

-  Hyaluronic Acids (HA) and nano-Hyaluronic Acids: HA is a natural component found on skin. The duo-HA molecules instantly hydrate and lock-in moisture, keeping skin soft, smooth & bouncy.

Arbutin is one of the ingredients that work well for my skin hence anything with Arbutin = buy. 

The gel:

How I use it:

After toner/even lotion. Can serve as a sleeping mask. 


The gel comes in a white plastic container. I like to use a spatula to scoop the amount I need out. You can use a disposable spoon or something along that line if you hate products in your fingernails as well.

Stars: ★☆☆


Hada Labo 3-in-1 Arbutin Whitening Perfect Gel

A firm gel consistency, slightly opaque and non-sticky. Not too viscous hence it spreads very well.

Stars: ★

On skin

Absorbs very quickly. If you used a thicker layer, it will feel like a film but not in a bad way. Versatile; Essence, moisturiser, sheet mask. You can use it in the morning or at night (a thicker layer and it will be your sleeping mask)

Stars: ★


Weird. It is definitely not your usual perfumed gels/moisturisers. I'm fine with it but do not really like the smell.

Stars: ★☆☆☆☆


It is moisturising but not super super moisturising. No whitening effect observed yet. Have been using for almost a month.

Stars: ★☆☆

The Verdict

I like it, especially the whole idea of 3 in 1. I tried it in the morning before my makeup, I tried it at night as my last step/sleeping mask. My favourite is of course to use it as a sleeping mask. So convenient! Hada Labo perfect gel is my best friend when exams/deadlines is round the corner (like next week!) I don't have the luxury of time to sit in front of the dressing table going through step 1 to 100. I just need to cleanse > toner > sleeping mask every night.Best invention for lazy people like yours truly!
However, it is not that different from most sleeping masks available in the market.

Rating: 8.5/10
May repurchase when I ran out of it
