Nature Republic: made in Korea make up and skin care
Nature Republic is the latest Korean make-up and skin care brand to hit the Philippines.Am presently using their BB cream, foam cleanser and lipstick with lip gloss and I love ‘em all! My sister, who lived for a long time in South Korea, swears by their BB cream too for giving perfect coverage.
It was before Christmas of last year when my friend Tess gave me a package of Nature Republic products to try. I was happy because I really do love receiving make-up as a gift. Watch out this space for an announcement soon because we are also giving away Nature Republic goodie bags to make a few readers happy as well!
Just some of their products:fruit-based facial cleansers, shower gel, nail polish, double-sided lipstick & lip gloss combo, Collagen HD blusher and BB cream. Their packaging is attractive and high-quality but the price is worth checking out because it’s not as expensive as you think!
Here’s a partial rundown of the product lines from Nature Republic:
For BB cream fanatics out there, there are five Sparkling Face BB Creams to choose from under the Collagen HD line – Essential has a matte finish, Aqua is for visibly flawless skin, Primer fills in lines and pores for a smooth finish, Cover hides pigmentation and breakouts while Pearl gives a soft and silky texture.
The Collagen HD Line also includes 3 Sparkling Make-Up Base and Fixer, 3 Sparkling Foundation and Concealer, Compact Powder, Twin Cake, Skin and Stick Cove, Dual Lipstick and Gloss, Dual Lipstick and Lip Creams, Blusher and Eye and Lip Palette.
Their Shaking Smoothie has very unique packaging that grabs the eye.This is actually a gel-type soothing facial mask pack enriched with vitamins A, C and E to cool down one’s skin temperature. With every pack comes a product sachet, a spatula and a colorful receptacle similar to a take-out plastic cup for beverages. The product comes in powder form. Mixed with water, it becomes a gel like substance that is ready to give a soothing effect on your face.
For premature aging, Nature Republic has a wrinkle refining line called Forever Lasting. Suited for fair-skinned women, the six organic herbal extracts and Immortelle Flower Water in the products stimulates collagen production to fill wrinkles and promote a youthful elasticity.
Nature Republic also has an anti-ageing line for men called Cell Boosting Homme. The toner has a dual effect as a moisturizer and a soothing after shave. The emulsion has a velvety soft texture with no sticky residue.
The brand’s most premium line is named Snail Therapy. It contains replicated snail mucus that provides skin whitening, restores tissue, fights wrinkles, lessens scarring and promotes overall skin recovery. The products under this line have a creamy texture for use during day and night aside from having a clean, pleasant smell.
Nature Republic branches in the Philippines are in the following malls: 4F Mega Atrium SM Megamall, 3F SM The Block SM North Edsa, GF SM Fairview, GF Festival Supermall, and Landmark Makati
