Nature Republic & Innisfree – Product Reviews

This is part two (and final part) of my Korean skin care product reviews. Part one was on The Face Shop, a makeup and skin care brand. This post will be on Nature Republic and Innisfree. These three brands are popular, and are endorsed by celebrities in Korea.

You can read part one on The Face Shop HERE.

Nature Republic

1. Jeju Sparkling Cleansing Tissue makeup remover

1454548571_l1

Recommend. The packaging is great because it does a good job at sealing the remaining wipes. Note of caution: After you remove makeup, your face does sting, but if you apply moisturizer afterwards, it’s fine.

2. Shea Butter Steam Cream

60% recommend. I like it on my face but I would not use it on my hands. My hands feel even more dry afterwards. I like it though because the scent is very faint. It does not smell like shea butter at all. I actually have a super sensitive nose so strong perfumes and strong smelling foods actually make my nose and eyes really, really irritated.

3. Forest Breeze perfume

Recommend. This has a really unique scent. I’ve never smelled any other perfume or mist like this. It really kind of does smell like a forest, which I like because one, I like things that are different and two, I like the forest!

Innisfree

1. Jeju Sparkling Mineral Mist

I LOVE THIS. I don’t know why but I love spraying my face with this. It says that there’s some sparkling thermal water from the Jeju island in Korea in this product, and it helps to moisturize and brighten your face. Recommend!

2. Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

Recommend! It’s a clay mask that has volcanic rocks from Jeju island. Hm I don’t know much about the science behind skincare benefits from Jeju island materials. It is a good face mask though.

3. Real Quinoa Mask

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS!!! It smells awful. I can’t put this on my face…

OK, I guess I should write more. πŸ˜›

The super volcanic pore clay mask by innisfree contains clay from the explosion of the Jeju volcano. Basically this clay is Jeju volcanic material.Β Now if you watch Kdramas, you might have heard of Jeju Island because there is always something “in store” for the main couple there. πŸ˜‰

Apparently it has multi-purposes. You can apply a section of your face if you are concerned about blackheads popping out of nowhere.Β When it’s too late to do that, you can cover your blackhead. It’s really stiff. I would imagine the full face mask is harder to spreadΒ than a sheet.
