[Review] Nature Republic - Whitening & Wrinkle Improvement Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream + Essence

Welcome back and hello September! :)

We just finished our series of skin cleansing products last month, and I hope my personal review could serve the purpose (for you who is planning to buy).

Honestly, I have been planning to write this review a looong time ago. I came across with this latest Nature Republic skin care series while I visited Korea last February. In fact, I have a few more products to share from my February haul, and please stay tuned for more! ;)

A little story behind. I first came across to this series in my third day in Korea. The salesgirl speaks fluent chinese (explains very patiently), and after trying it, I couldn't help wanted to get my hands on it. But one main thing, it's quite pricy for a road shop product. Don't get me wrong. Road shop products don't mean to be no quality; however, there must be a reason why they are tagged as "road shop", correct? At least their products have to be affordable to most of the people, right? Unfortunately, I didn't bring much cash on hand, so I went off disappointingly.

Until we went to Lotte Duty Free Departemental Store, where they accept payment via card, then I bought it down, together with the CC Cushion Compact (find my product review here).

As I lost my purchase receipt, I couldn't recall how much I bought for this set. Around 120USD at that time. BUT I can tell you IT IS SUPER WORTH IT 'till you find out that... with this price, they give you another one (1) set of these (watery cream and essence) + one (1) Snail Solution Trail Pack + 30 pcs of Snail Solution Hydrogen Mask (worth RM15/pcs) + numerous mini Snail Solution sample bottles. All I can say is, OMGEEEEE!!!!!! This is why girls get addicted in shopping so easily :p




The packaging itself gives people the impression of high-end products, which is very impressive. Especially the watery cream glass packaging container; on the other side, it gives more unnecessary weight (eats up my luggage spaces as well T^T).

Let's get into the Essence first, shall we?


Nature Republic Whitening & Wrinkle Improvement Ginseng Royal Silk Essence


As you can observed, the Essence is more golden-jelly like. In fact, you can find small gold particles in it. I smell slight traditional herbal scent, maybe it could be the ginseng? I'm not sure. But certainly it is not an unpleasant scent. The Essence is made so fine, and once apply it onto my face, the skin absorbs instantly! Since its emphasizes also on wrinkle care, I purposely apply and massage around my eyes.

In comparison, honestly I like the Watery Cream better. Similarly you can find small gold particles inside, and it is a beautiful transparent gel cream. With a little scope, it is more than enough for moisturizing my whole face.  Also I will apply some on my neck as part of the skin care routine.

For the Watery Cream, I would suggest to be careful of the portion. For my case, I will try to avoid T-zone and chin as too much of it could be too oily. Meanwhile, our weather in Malaysia is rather damp and moisture. Unless you are sleeping in an air-conditioning room, otherwise it is not necessary to apply a thick layer of it on your face.


Overall ratings (Essence):
Price             ★★★★☆
Functionality  ★★★★★
Texture         ★★★★★

I believe this is a product which worth its dollar, and even a bonus if you are to buy during promotion seasons. Maybe you would think that you are too young for anti-wrinkle care, but think twice. Unless you're below the age of 20. If you are in your 20s, I suggest you to start now than it's too late. I heard my Korean housemate last time she said that the reason why Koreans still look young in their 40s and 50s is because they do the anti-aging skin care routine since 20s. You know what to do next, right? :D


Do lemme know your thoughts about this product review or share your experience with me in the comment box below.

Cheers!^^
