Korean Skincare Haul (Nature Republic Uptown BGC)

My obsession for skincare is pretty obvious... lol! Writing (or talking) about it makes me feel really happy. It's probably one of the best things that you can invest in - your skin will thank you for it as you age. ;) 

In case you haven't watched my skincare routine yet, here's a vlog episode of mine from November 2017 where I shared the products that I use - brands that are purely Korean and Japanese.

However, the changing seasons call for some adjustments in skin routines, so I've been switching up different products in the past weeks to fit my current needs. Today, I'll be sharing with you my discoveries from Nature Republic, so please keep reading! :)

Nature Republic, one of the leading cosmetic brands from South Korea, has opened up a new store in Uptown Mall BGC. They're known for producing quality beauty products that are derived from natural substances and essences.

Their most famous product: Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel

This product gently moisturizes all skin types, including sensitive skin. It has proven to effectively soothe and refresh dry, inflamed, and sun burnt areas, too. You see this pretty much everywhere - even in bazaars or online stores. Be careful of fake ones, though! I highly encourage you to purchase only from Nature Republic stores in malls. Otherwise, you're risking your skin from getting further damage.

There are several ways to know if the product is fake or real. According to their team, one way is to check the recycle sign at the back. Fake ones have two (2) signs, the original has one (1). 

I heard the fake aloe gel costs only Php100.00. The real one from Nature Republic costs Php245.00.

Anyway, here's what you can expect inside the newly-opened Nature Republic store:

From cleansers to sleeping packs, they have products for different skin concerns!

EXO Hand Cream (which y'all are crazy about!)

They also have foundations, color correcting creams, blushers, lip tints, brow pens, and more! In fairness with the foundation bottle - the frosted approach reminds me of Fenty Beauty! :p

Now for my haul - aka the products that I'm about to add in my skincare routine! So much love!

Sun Block with SPF35 (Php455.00)
The last step in morning skincare routines which we tend to forget sometimes. Sun block's super important to shield our skin from the harmful sun rays.

Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Mist (Php275.00)
Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel (Php245.00)
Of course! A Nature Republic trip isn't complete without these!

Iceland First Watery Essence (Php645.00)
To be applied after using toner to add another layer of hydration before creams or serums.

Pure Bud Relief Foam Cleanser (Php345.00)
Trying out this cleanser as soon as I finish up the one I'm currently using (on the vlog!)

Mild Cotton Wipes (Php66.00)
For my toner!

Face Masks (Php55.00 - Php75.00)
For that extra moisture and glow!

Clear Spot Patch (Php235.00)
Blackhead Clear Nose Pack (Php35.00)
Skin emergency savers!

Cream Concealer (Php395.00)
The only makeup product that I picked! Haha! Running out of concealers, perfect chance to finally try this one!

Try before you buy! Nature Republic has starter kits, too, in case you want to try out the products in small batches before purchasing the full-sized ones.

Fresh Green Tea Starter Kit
Toner, emulsion, and cream 

Bee Venom Starter Kit
Cleansing foam, toner, emulsion

Collagen Dream Starter Kit
Skin booster, emulsion, essence, cream

Will definitely share my thoughts on these products! I might upload an updated skincare routine soon. Stay tuned for that!

Thanks so much and congratulations, Nature Republic! Kamsahamnida!
