I spotted this Hada Labo Whitening UV Milk SPF 50+ PA+++ which was in blue bottle earlier this year in Japan when I was there for a holiday. Immediately I bought back a few bought a few bottle to try. The reasons for my impulse buy was because I really like their exisiting Hada Labo Moisturizing UV Milk SPF50 PA+++ which is in white bottle which target hydration, it is really affordable to use compare to my favourite Clarins UV Plus Hp Day Screen High Protection SPH 40 UVA-UVB/PA+++
And after I have been using this for more than 6 months, finally the Hada Labo Whitening UV Milk SPF 50+ PA+++ is available in Malaysia! I didn't know it was available since last month until I was sent a bottle for review...yay! Well I wanted to review this so much earlier on but the problem is that that I bought in Japan has Japanese description & I can't read them!
The only difference between this the white (Moisturizing UV Milk) & blue bottle (Whitening UV Milk) is like how their names has suggested which is the former one focus on hydration and the later one focus on whitening.
Hada Labo Whitening UV Milk has 4-in-1 benefits :-
Whitening (additional benefit)
This new sunblock has been added with Nano Hyaluronic Acid to provide the skin with continuous hydration; and Vitamin C which functions to lighten dark spots as well as optimizes skin’s fairness and translucency. Vitamin C is also known for its anti-oxidant properties and ability to fight free radicals caused by pollutants, harmful rays from the sun and other harmful substances.
This also comes in a plastic bottle and a dispenser where we can control how much to pour out. Must shake well before using this!
In case you don't know Hada Labo products are FREE from Fragrance, Alcohol, Colorant, Mineral Oil and Animal Derivatives. Hence it is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.

Review of Hada Labo Whitening UV Milk SPF 50+ PA+++
To me this Hada Labo Whitening UV Milk's texture has almost the same with the existing UV Moist Emulsion, the texture was light & it absorbed quickly without leaving a white cast on my face! It does not make my feel sticky or oily even I was under the hot sun for the whole day and this has been proven when I was in Pangkor for a holiday recently. Despite it being a SPF50 PA+++ sunblock, the sunblock formula does not clog my pores at all and it works well as makeup base for me!
And so far I have not seen how it helps to lighten my dark spot or even up the colour tone of my face, however to me a sunblock's primary function must be able to protect me from harmful UV rays without making my face greasy! So it did and I'm happy with it
The selling price for Hada Labo Whitening UV Milk SPF 50+ PA+++ is RM49.90 for 38ml , same as the Moisturizing UV Milk. And in this case when both the price are the same, I would prefer to buy the whitening version one because of the added ingredients!
