Sheshiedo may be the most popular Japanese beauty brand in the world. But many skincare enthusiasts, especially in Reddit’s Asian Beauty and Skincare Addiction forums love Hada Labo which is claimed to be the number one skincare brand in Japan. And it seems like many Filipinas love it as well or starting to get curious about this brand. But where to buy Hada Labo in Philippines? Keep scrolling to see the list.
What is Hada Labo?
If you haven’t heard of Hada Labo, I don’t blame you, it seems like they sell in limited places, except for Japan, they’re also available in Malaysia, Singapore, Hing Kong, and Taiwan. So they’re not really a household name in many counties. But many say that they are the number one skincare brand in Japan and almost all Japanese local drugstores and beauty shops carry them. While outside of Japan, they’re very popular with those who are hardcore skincare junkies. But recently, they became known internationally even to those non-skincare fans, thanks to 9gag for sharing their commercial that has gone viral.
The commercial is a lovely short story about a girl who got rejected by a boy she likes who happens to be her friend too. Typical Asian friendzone-love story right? But no! Instead of a typical plot where the girls always transform using makeup and going on a diet to get slim, the Hada Labo love story commercial did not do any of that! Instead, the girl was just seen using Hada Labo skincare products and becomes more confident. I won’t spoil you the ending, just watch it below. The commercial is five minutes long, but I swear, you must watch it fully! It’s like your finally watching a legit beauty and body-positive Asian drama.
Where to Buy Hada Labo in the Philippines?
MENTHOLATUM – This is the company that owns Hada Labo, Rohto Melano, Selsun, and more. Since they arrived in the Philippines, they now have official stores in Lazada and Shopee.
WATSON – Hada Labo officially launched in the Philippines and they are now available in all Watson’s store branches and online which includes their official Lazada page. But as of now, only their Gokyujun line is available.
Go Bloom & Glow – This shop does not only have K-beauty brands, but also Japanese beauty brands such as Hada Labo, Kose, and the cult fave DHC. They offer free shipping nationwide and you can use this discount code MARIM60 to get ₱100 OFF for a minimum purchase of ₱1000, single-use only.
Kanna Beauty – This one is a Shopee seller, and this is where I got my Rohto Melano CC Intensive Anti-Spot Essence which is a cult-fave among beauty enthusiasts. Their products are all from Japan and they have almost everything you can find in Japanese drugstores, such as Rohto, Hada Labo, Daiso, DHC, and the countless collagen supplements.
Sakura Beauty Hub – I recently discovered this seller while I was looking for Biore UV Watery Essence and Anessa Perfect UV sunscreen for me and my mother that are around Greater Manila Area only. Since the shipping will be faster if the seller is near me during the lockdown. Anyway, the items are legit, the same as those I bought in Japan and Watsons, and besides Japanese beauty products, they also have beauty supplements and snacks.
Japanichi Shop – Another shop I found through research, so yes, I haven’t purchase anything from them yet but I do see they have impressive selections compared to those stores I mentioned above. Because besides beauty products, they also sell Japanese supplements. They are also available in Shopee and Lazada.
YES STYLE – This is one of the most popular online Asian Fashion & Beauty shops. I think a majority of fashion and beauty influencers have collaborated with this shop. They have almost everything from clothes, shoes and a vast array of Asian beauty brands from 3CE, Hada Labo, Innisfree, Secret Key, CosRx, Biore, Canmake, and more! And don’t forget to use the code ALYSSA12 to get 5% off your first order and 2% off your future orders.
The Skincare Curator – I just discovered this local online beauty shop last November 2017 and since then I already purchased three times from them. The products are authentic and they deliver fast! Besides Hada Labo products, they also carry brands such as Leegeeham, CosRx (they have better stocks than BeautyMNL and Watsons), Neogen, Klairs, and more. For payments, they accept BDO, BPI, Palawan, and PayPal.
So far these are the only two shops I know where to buy Hada Labo in Philippines and have regular stocks. But I will keep updating this when I find new shops.
