[Review] Nature Republic - Snail Solution Trial Kit (Toner/Emulsion/Essence/Cream)【Eng / 华】

Hello there! :)
哈喽大家好!


Today, a bit different from usual, we are going to look into a trial kit from Nature Republic, which consists of 4 products - skin booster (or, toner), emulsion (or, moisturizer), essence and cream.
今天会和以往有一点不一样。今天要介绍的是一组来自Nature Republic的试用品,里头有4样产品——爽肤水(或称,柔肤水),保湿精华露&保湿霜。


Let us go through it one by one, shall we?
让我为大家一一的介绍。


Because it's a trial kit, so they all are in these adorable size. I got them when I purchased the Whitening & Wrinkle Improvement Ginseng Royal Silk sets. Check out the link here.
正因为是试用品,它们的包装是如此的“娇小可爱”。哦对,忘了说,我是在购买Whitening & Wrinkle Improvement Ginseng Royal Silk套装两组的时候赠送的。点击here了解更多。


Nature Republic's Snail Solution Trial Kit


First, the skin booster. The texture of the solution is the lightest among these four items (see below). According to the product description, this skin booster consists of 80% of snail mucus essence, the highest percentage among these four products.
首先,skin booster也可以理解成"toner/爽肤水”。这个的质地是4个产品当中最稀的(见下)。根据产品介绍,这支爽肤水里头有80%蜗牛粘液精华素,也是这4个产品中精华素成分最高的。

What is the function of this skin booster? It is said to have calming and moisturizing effect which prepares the skins for the next few products.
那这支爽肤水的功效是什么呢?据说它有镇静皮肤和保湿的效果,能够让肌肤准备好更有效地吸收接下来的产品。


Personally, I quite like this product, because of it's light texture which quickly absorbed into the skin, and it doesn't give you that sticky-sticky feeling after applying it on the skin (mindful that is snail mucus essence after all). The scent is also the least fragrance among these 4 products. Least irritant.
我个人是蛮喜欢这支爽肤水的。主要是因为它薄薄的质地让皮肤很快吸收进去,涂在脸上也不会有黏黏的感觉(别忘记它是蜗牛粘液精华素耶)。它的香精味道也是4个产品当中最不刺鼻的。用起来舒服。




Coming up next is the emulsion. It has 76% snail mucus essence, and it is for lasting moisturizing effect which promotes anti-aging care. Its texture is slightly thicker than skin booster (the previous one) whereby I can totally see longer moisturizing effect after using it.
接下来要介绍的是保湿乳。它有76%蜗牛粘液精华素,不仅提倡给肌肤长久滋润效果,也有抗老的功能。它的质地比之前提到过的爽肤水来得浓稠,这也解释了为什么它能让肌肤持久保湿。


Nature Republic's Snail Solution Emulsion (Trial) | 31ml


To name one thing I dislike about it? Its strong and irritating scent. It's like there is a bunch of flowers right in front of your nose! Well, it doesn't really smell like flowers thou. It's hard to explain its scent, but for sure they put a lot of artificial fragrance in it. I have sensitive nose, so it's really hard to bear with the emulsion's scent here. For your reference only.
要说一个不喜欢的理由?它那香精的味道实在刺鼻,好比一束花摆在你鼻子下。哦不,它并不是花香。这个有一点难解释。就是那种人造香精的味道,怪怪的。我有鼻子敏感,所以实在很难介绍这个味道。供参考。




Third item here is what they called "essence". Weird thing is, this essence has much lower percentage of snail mucus essence - of 68%, but they named it after the word "essence". It should have the highest dosage of the goodness, isn't it? Anyway. The texture is between skin booster and emulsion. It has the similar functions as emulsion, so I really can't tell what's the difference between two products, other than the texture, which is obvious.
第三件产品名叫“精华素”。之前介绍两个产品中就已经有提到蜗牛粘液精华素了,难道这个是四个当中的BOSS??非也。奇怪的是,这所谓“精华素”产品里的蜗牛粘液精华素竟然比前两个还低,只有68%。有够奇怪的。它的质地相当于爽肤水和保湿乳中间。产品包装提到的功能也和之前保湿乳的相仿。说真的,除了它们的质地之外(最明显的差异),我还真说不出这两个产品的差别。

My opinion on this particular product? It is just so-so, and I wouldn't buy it at all. Sorrey :/
对此产品的个人意见是?很普通的一产品,我也不会买。抱歉!




Lastly, it is what they called "cream". I was quite confused by just looking at its name. What does it even mean for a word "cream"? o.o
最后的产品最神,就一个字“霜”。请问我应该怎么样去理解这产品呢?一开始的我真的很困惑。


Luckily the product description did the talking. So apparently it is a nourishing cream with 62% of snail mucus essence which promotes bouncing healthy skin. Judging by the cream texture itself (slightly thicker than emulsion), it could be a heavy-product to put on your skin, so caution on the amount when you apply it.
幸好在产品包装上有提到它的成分和功能。读完后,我把它理解成一款含有62%蜗牛粘液精华的“滋润霜/膏”,主要提倡活力有弹性的肌肤。因为它的质地比保湿乳来的浓稠,把它涂在脸上有可能会太重皮肤会比较难吸收,所以务必注意每次的用量。


Nature Republic' Snail Solution Cream (Trial) | 5ml

Do I like this product? I think it is still okay if you apply the right amount onto your skin. Otherwise, it could be too oily and leads to breakouts. It could be more suitable for my skin after 5-6 years.
到底喜欢这个产品吗?个人认为还好啦,用量用对了的话。不然有可能会导致产生痘痘。可能5、6年后会更加适合吧。





Honestly, I wasn't that happy about this trial kit. It could be a great kit to start-off anti-aging skincare, but to me, it is too much of snail mucus essence, which I don't really see any obvious effect, yet. I could be wrong, and my opinion could be subjective.
老实说,我不太满意这个试用套装。它是一套很齐全的抗老化护肤产品,但是对于我来说这套产品主打的蜗牛粘液精华实在太豪华了,却还没看出明显的效果。当然,这是我的感想啦。


I would definitely recommend this trial kit/these products to those who have dry skin and looking for anti-aging skincare products. I think this could be a perfect match for them. If it is still too heavy, please adjust the amount you apply accordingly, and/or apply it on targeted areas only.
对于正在寻找抗老化产品的干性皮肤朋友们,我会推荐这组产品滴。对于其他皮肤性质的朋友们,当然也可以尝试,不过就是要注意用量咯~


You can start doing anti-aging skincare in your early 20s, and guarantee you won't regret starting early. However, it is recommended to start with water-based anti-aging products, which is less-heavy and easier for your skin to absorb the goodness. Then you can switch to oil-based products after sometimes, preferably in your 30s.
抗老是可以在20几岁的时候就开始保养的。而且我敢说,你绝对不会后悔开始得早。一开始,会推荐使用水性抗老化产品,相较比较容易被年轻的皮肤吸收。然后再过个几年,再转用油性抗老化产品,会比较看得出果效。



Rating: 2/5
