During my visit back home I checked out the Korean Beauty Boutique: Nature Republic. They recently opened a few store fronts in Hawaii. If you're unfamiliar with Nature Republic, they are originally from South Korea & are well known for their Korean Beauty skincare products. K-Beauty, as we like to abbreviate, has certainly been taking over the beauty world.
About Nature Republic: (As published on the Nature Republic Website)
Nature Republic was established in March, 2009.
Nature Republic is the naturalistic cosmetic brand which delivers the ultimate beauty energy from real clean nature to everyone's healthy and joyful lifestyle.
It is Nature Republic's passion and philosophy to introduce valuable beauty products of quality derived from the undiscovered clean energy and genuine hues of Mother Nature, which will satisfy the consumers' desires to achieve an organic and beautiful joie de vivre..
I decided to try out their mask sheets since I'm slightly obsessed with mask sheets. Nature Republic carries an assortment of masks that range from $3 & up. You might be able to get them even cheaper (less than $2/mask), as they often have really great deals. Whenever I go to a beauty store or Asian Market - where you'll most likely find these K-beauty masks, I like to pick up a few. I picked up a variety of masks at Nature Republic but in this post, I'll be focusing on the ROSE, ACAI BERRY, CUCUMBER, ROYAL JELLY & BAMBOO mask sheets. First off, how cute is the packaging? I love the graphics on each pouch, looks super realistic.
ROSE: Rose extracts moisturize and revitalize skin
ACAI BERRY: Acai Berry extracts moisturize and reduce wrinkles
CUCUMBER: Cucumber extracts moisturize and make soft skin
ROYAL JELLY: Royal Jelly extracts provide nourishment and reduce wrinkles
BAMBOO: Bamboo extract reinforces the skin's moisture balance
As you can see from their description, they all pretty much add that extra hydration to your skin. They each have their own unique scent as well. My skin type is normal/DRY. I personally love doing these hydrating masks after an at home mini facial. I always feel rejuvenated after doing a mask & my skin feels extremely hydrated. My personal favorite out of the 5 is the ROSE mask. It smells just like roses too.
Here is the back of the sheet mask packaging.
The labels are majority in Korean. Unfortunately, I don't read Korean so I can't explain everything to detail in English.
If you take a look at the photos, it is pretty self explanatory on how to use the sheet mask. And if you still don't quite get it, there is a small section in English that has product description, ingredients and how to use it.
How To Use:
1. After washing the face, apply toner to prepare the skin for the next step of skin care.
2. Open the pouch, pull out the mask, and place on the face, using the eye areas to align correctly.
3. Remove after 10-20 minutes and gently pat for better absorption.
I find that these masks provide extra essence floating at the bottom. Don't waste the essence! I usually put the remaining essence all over my neck/decollete and anywhere else I could use a little more hydration - hands, feet, elbows, etc!
These masks are so easy to use & great when you just want to feel like you're getting a SPA treatment at home. After a long flight from HNL to SFO, I immediately put this on my face when I got home. My skin desperately needed that extra hydration from all the traveling. It felt so good, I woke up the next morning with radiant, hydrated skin.
If you have't tried this brand, I recommend you try it. As mentioned, they're reasonably priced. I recently saw a BUY 10, GET 10 FREE = $19 Nature Republic Hawaii Mask deal. (I would check your local store to see if this is still being offered.) That is a great deal. If you need gift ideas - Christmas is just around the corner, these masks would be awesome as a stocking stuffer. Or if you're a bride-to-be & need bridal party favors, this would be a great addition to a gift bag!
Nature Republic has quite the collection of skin care and beauty products for all skin types. Check out their website to see what they have in store for you.
