Skin Conditioner

In my mind, toners can be broadly splint into 2 categories;
The watery kind and the gel like thicker kind. I personally prefer the watery kind for extra cleansing and the gel variety as an extra moisturising prep during dry skin spells.

The Rohto Hadalabo Skin Conditioner was my most recent purchase and I bought it because it promised all sorts of excellent things.

The stand out promises include:

Skin balancing,
Skin smoothing
Astringent properties to keep pores in check
Blemish treating properties.

The Hadalabo Skin Conditioner is recommended for oily/blemish prone skin types.

I have been using this for about 6 weeks now. I use it after cleansing and just squeeze a bit onto a cotton pad to gently wipe away excess grime as part of my night time routine. My skin feels immediately smoother after each use.

I am often suspicious of skincare items that promise immediate results but this works for me so far be it from me to start complaining now.

During the summer months my skin becomes increasingly oily and I am always on the look out for something to help me balance out this issue.

I have noticed a marked improvement in my skin's appearance and texture since using the Rohto Skin Conditioner and after 6 weeks I am delighted to say that this item has been promoted to the dizzy heights of " summer staple skincare items" for me. I will indubitably repurchase.

However, I am certain that this item would be far too harsh for me to use during the winter when the landscape of my face turns into a parched and arid terrain. Luckily I still have the Givenchy Hydra Sparkling Lotion so see me through the chilly season.

I bought this item from Adam Beauty for $25.5 USD (Approx £17.00) for 170ml including shipping


  1. Never heard of a skin conditioner before.
    Interesting how some products are excellent for one's skin in summer and the reverse in winter.

  2. Thanks for this review! I'm so eager to try out Japanese brands but I'm a bit hesitant because I have really sensitive skin and it looks like this toner contains alcohol which proved to be not so helpful for me in the past...

  3. I like Japanese brands and I'll be sure to try this product. Hope I can find some, thanks.
