Is it fake?

Help! Help! Help!

Yesterday I had the time to make a trip to Chinatown to walk around the beauty shops.
I remembered seeing some of the Hada Labo range at one of the shops I usually browse around and decided to get it.

I usually don’t doubt the authenticity of products (even though it is always better to be on the safe side), I went ahead and googled pictures to compare the labels on the ones other bloggers posted and the one I had.

And…they’re different!! Ahh >__< There is Japanese the label, but there is also quite a lot of Chinese. It didn’t click to me when the SA at the store was reading it off to me in Chinese :X

I hope it is because it’s from Hong Kong (at least I think it is…), whereas most bloggers who blogged about the product were from Singapore/Malaysia.

If anyone has seen packaging like the one that I have, please let me know so I can calm myself and use this product happily :[

Maybe I'm just over thinking this?...What do you guys think?

This is the one that I got.

The only one that is closest to mine that I’ve seen.

The one that is most similar to the ones other bloggers have.

Here are the differences.


  1. I have no idea about this but I hope you get a good answer soon!

  2. Sweets, I wouldn't worry about it if yours is made in China. The characters in yours are in Chinese whereas the one that most bloggers have are in Japanese.

    And before you worry, Hada Labo products sold in Malaysia are also made in China. They are perfectly safe to use =D

  3. Thank you! ^__^

    I thought it might be a possibility and just wanted some opinions just to be sure :]

    I don't see Made in China in English..maybe it's in Chinese? lol

  4. I don't know if it's fake or not but from what Blair has said, maybe you shouldn't be worry about it :)

  5. I can't tell you for sure it is or is not fake... but... I can tell you most Japanese products I got in Taiwan are covered in Chinese labels :D they do that so non-Japanese ppl can read and learn about the products... I think you should be fine :P

  6. Thanks for sharing I'm not sure now I've just thrown away my bottle...
