Nature Republic Aqua Sunblock Cream SPF 35 PA++ Review

December 1, 2010

Does anyone miss me? hehe. Apologized for the longgggggg hiatus.

Anyway, I guess most of the people would know about Nature Republic for now. I wasn't really attract to it at first since I'm a bit skeptical on Korean beauty products (well, don't ask why. It's a long story.)

So, the curious me went to their shop during their some-what grand-opening in Queensbaymall and got some of their stuffs. And this was one of them....

The box that comes with it.

The information that you would get from the box...

I'm still wondering what is "MD water". mountain dew water? keke.

What I like about is that the bottle is quite sturdy by itself. You can easily handle the sunblock without messing it up at the pump because you will need some "pressure" to actually pressed the cream out from the bottle.

The sunblock texture. More like liquid than cream to me.

When spreaded onto the skin.

Price: About RM39+  for 65ml (Correct me if I'm wrong, I tried to find the price at the shop but it seems that it was out of stock at the moment in Queensbaymall. =\)

My thoughts:
The SA there recommended me that this was one of their "HIT" products, and she suggested this sunblock to those who doesn't like "oily-type" of sunblock.
At first, I wasn't used to the sunblock as I thought it was still a little too "creamy" than my "ex-sunblocks" that I have. It took me a few days to get used to the texture and now I'm quite satisfied with them.

Texture wise, don't expect it to be a runny type of liquid. It has a very very faint fragrance to it as well. Very very slight shimmers, and no grey/white cast to it. Also, it takes about a rough 1-2 minutes for it to settle down onto my skin. On a side note, it does not have any "oily" feel to it and I would feel that this sunblock would suit normal/combi/oily skin people. =)

Would I re-purchase them?
Maybe. But I would prefer a more liquid type of sunblock.

Here's the ingredient list that is stated behind the box.

So, what's your take on Nature Republic products?

BTW, Rain (Korean singer/actor) is the ambassador for this brand. I will show you how their paper bags look like the next time. :P
