HABA skincare line is something I have been consistently using for the past two years. I just repurchased White Lady for the fifth time. I've also gone through at least three bottles of Squalene and VC Lotion. There are several other things I've tried from the brand which I find rather excellent, but I always seem to miss these three whenever I run out.
This is a lightly moisturizing liquid with 2% of Vitamin C derivatives. VC Lotion is soothing and hydrating without being sticky and seems to function as a carrier of the previously applied Vitamin C serum, White Lady. Containing 2% of the active ingredients, it is effective on its own. I personally love this lotion and would recommend it to anyone, even to those who find Vitamin C irritating. It would be a nice way to ease into a more intense Vitamin C regimen. Even when I was not using White Lady, I always kept a bottle of VC Lotion. And as you see in the main picture, I am currently using a big pump bottle. It is more cost-efficient, but the regular size bottle lasts a long time if you're not showering your face with it as I do.
I have also tried Squa Cleansing, Squa Powder, Shampoo & Conditioner from HABA. I like Squa Powder a lot and repurchased the refill pouch. This is a gentle and effective washing powder with enzymes that seems to be perfect to use every day. Squa Cleansing and the unscented Shampoo & Conditioner supposedly have some squalane in them and are all very nice quality. However, I decided not to repurchase them because they all faintly smell like, I don't know, fish? I do have a sensitive nose, but it seemed to me that these are not as finely refined as their Squalane because Squalane is truly odorless.
It appears that currently there are two different distributors in the U.S. (HABA US & HABA America). I've ordered from both, but the main issue is that the price is not even and products are out of stock way too often. I've also tried eBay sellers based in Japan and Cosme-De (based in Hong Kong) and had no problem.
It is always a bit inconvenient for me to get HABA stuff. There is an obviously geographical reason to it and because the brand isn't global. I often find myself impatient waiting for the shipment from overseas, but I can also see that it's probably because I consider the line an absolute necessity in my daily routines. Have you tried HABA skincare? What are some of your long-time skincare favorites that you seem never to be without it?
