[Review] Nature Republic O2 Bubble Mask Sheet (and wash off mask) | Black Rose & Lotus

Nature Republic O2 Bubble Mask Sheet (and wash off mask) | Black Rose & Lotus Review:

At some point this year, and briefly bubbly masks were a thing you could see with some frequency. That fashion didn’t stick for long, but is that a good thing or a bad thing? These masks from Nature Republic are particularly peculiar since, even though they all work like this, they specify that it’s a mask sheet and wash off mask. For Korean skin care, stating two types instead of only the main one is very unusual!

So, let’s analyze these two flower masks, see how they feel, and more importantly: do they work and are they worthy of your time?

Nature Republic Cushion CC Natural SPF 35 PA++ Review:

I received this product in a beauty box, as Nature Republic releases them from time to time. Honestly I never  meant to try this product, I got the box because of a different one! And so this was just sitting in my closet for a relatively long time. But now that the season is changing it’s time to match not only the skin care but the base makeup to the weather changes, so we have to see what we have in our closet (or drawer, or cabinet, or box) and play with those things.

Recently I tried the IOPE and the Labiotte new cushions, and now I’m trying this one. Of course I don’t have for this one the same expectations as for the other two, but since I wear cushions daily it does need a certain level if I decide to keep this in my stash, no?

[Review] Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Mist

[Review] Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Mist

Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Mist Review:

If I get really famous one day and someone actually asked me to do a “what’s in your bag” episode you would found that anti-histamines is definitely a staple! You see, I am pretty much allergic; to what, exactly, I could not tell either nor the dermatologist that I have visited before but it has been the case since I was a kid and I’ve been so used to carrying anti-histamine in my pouch.

I would usually get red patches (sometimes without even realizing because most of the time, they aren’t even itchy) and my condition is being aggravated by the summer heat. Considering how sensitive my skin could get, I shy away from lotion, body creams or any other stuff that you slather on your body for extra moisture.

Besides, I am not comfortable on wearing such because they are so thick and way too heavy for my liking. But then again, there are times when I get really dry patches so I keep myself open for products that may alleviate my condition sans le grease.

And that’s exactly how I found Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel –hold your horses, I am not reviewing that! ☺ The aforementioned product seems alright for me but I generally dislike stuff that comes in tub because I find them unhygienic and I don’t really feel like carrying a bulky tub around so I was pretty ecstatic when I found that the famous Aloe Gel also comes in mist form! Let’s see if I’ve come like Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel Mist as much as the original form.

Nature Republic Jeju Sparkling Cleansing Water Review:

I got this item as a part of a cleansing kit, but this (and one of the other products) was the whole reason why I got the kit! I am attracted to green packages that subconsciously promise our brain natural goods to our skin. The size of the bottle isn’t too big, meaning it doesn’t trap you to this product for too long, and the price is low enough that if you do want to stick to it you can purchase it again. So I wanted to give it a try. Also, for those who decide to keep using it, there’s a bigger size. I do appreciate when stores make 2 sized products.

Nature Republic Cactus 92% Soothing Gel Review:

As you might have noticed if you read my reviews, I am an Aloe Gel enthusiast. So when the ladies here at Cosmeperks told me a cactus gel could be more hydrating I jumped right on it! It is more expensive than aloe, but hydration is important for aging skin, and for combination or oily skin. And I have both of them.

Not to mention the novelty of having cactus on your skin, who doesn’t want to try that?

Nature Republic Cotton Armpit Whitening Cream Review:

If you stumbled upon this review, you might want to read my review on the Nature Republic Armpit Wash first. Click here to read the review.

Like what I said on the 1st part of the review, I am writing a 2-part review for the Nature Republic Armpit Kit, because my thoughts and feelings on both products are different. What you will be seeing in this article is my Nature Republic Cotton Armpit Whitening Cream review only, which is the 2nd part of the Nature Republic Armpit Kit Review. So, this product is one of the items that I picked up from a Nature Republic store in the Philippines where I stocked up on some make up and skincare products.

Nature Republic Real Super Grain Foam Cleanser Review:

This product is fresh off the shelves! It literally came out 2 weeks ago, it was for pre-purchase for a while and I did do that, just so that I could be “the first” to try it. Grains are great for your skin because, just like nuts they give you healthy buttery oils and, well, butters.

[Review] Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Essence and Watery Cream

Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Essence and Watery Cream Review:

Nature Republic is one of the first Korean Brands that I’ve delved into so I’ve always have a soft spot for it. Nature Republic to me, however, has been a hit-and-miss and sadly, I haven’t found something from them that has been exemplary to my skin. Don’t get me wrong, most of their products deliver, I just feel that they lack in the oomph department. Nevertheless, I am open (will always be) to try Nature Republic products whenever I can so when I was gifted few products from the Ginseng Royal Silk line, I got really excited. I mean why not? You can consider this as luxury line given its price tag!

Nature Republic Cotton Armpit Wash Review:

When I visited the Philippines last year, I grabbed some skincare and body care products from Nature Republic. One of them was the Nature Republic Cotton Armpit Kit, which contains this Cotton Armpit Wash and a whitening cream.

This is part 1 of a 2-part review. I wanted to write 2 separate reviews for the armpit wash and cream because I have different thoughts and feelings about both products, and I wanted to be more specific on each item’s effects on my skin.
