Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel and Skinfood Deep Sea Water Multi Gel (Brightening)

Hi guys, today I am talking about two lovely gels I have picked up from Korean depart, both are very popular products and best sellers for both brands.

In fact the Nature Republic gel is a best selling overall product for Koreandepart.

As you guys know I am not a big fan of Nature Republic but this gel is one of Nature Republic’s signature products to date, where millions of units of these have been sold globally. So I decided to give it a try and see if this product will convert me to liking Nature republic.

Here is official info:

The Publicity

A generous tub

The good thing about this product is that The tub is filled to the brim with the thick jelly-like formula and it’s a generous amount for sure, there’s plenty for all over application for a good while.

The gel is not at all greasy. It’s lightweight, spreads on light and easy and leaves no apparent residue or tackiness. It also has a fresh, zesty and pleasing scent.

This gel is definitely hydrating and soothing and 300ml for 5.56 USD from Koreandepart is a massive bargain, I like to massaging into my skin straight after shower as a special little treat, as I have no space for it in my every day routine. I would say that this is a very nice product to try, however it is not my must have, I would much rather Nature republic did a Snail gel product of the same size, as I think, if you are looking for a great anti-aging gel-snail products are a way to go and Aloe Vera is just for someone who is looking for soothing and hydrating products without any great anti-aging benefits. Having said that…if you are looking for pure moisture whilst not being overpowered by heaviness and greasiness, this is the product to try.

My video review:

The second gel that I was a bit excited about is from Skinfood, it is Skinfood Deep Sea Water Multi Gel (Brightening), I loved the pour out of the bottle packaging idea and the fact that this is a sea water based product.

This gel actually comes in three varieties:

Deap sea Water-brightening for dry skin

Glacier milk-purifying for oily skin

Thermal water-moisturising for dry skin

You can get it from koreandepart or ebay for 11.41 USD

I would start off by saying that I really like this product as a lovely gel toner, that feels fantastic on the skin and is beautifully hydrating if you mix a couple of drops of dry face oil product with the gel in the palms of your hands and then massage it into your face, this gives a truly nice treat. However if you are looking for brightening, I have not noticed any to date, so I cant recommend it for that. The product is very long lasting and a little will go a long way. (this is also a 300 ml product)…so if you are looking for a nice marine based gel toner at a bargain price…this is definitely a product to check out ( it is not a must have though s an anti-aging treatment product), however I am liking this enough to try the other two varieties (Glacier milk and Thermal water) when  I finish this one…just for fun perhaps:)

My overall thoughts on this product:

Very versatile, you can use it on face and body.
– Quick to absorb.
– Helps control blemishes and does not clog pores (it contains witch hazel extract).
– Makes your face looks fresh, more awake and not dull.
– Affordable
– People who want whitening or brightening effect might not like this.
