The brand obviously took care to place everything neatly inside the box and I appreciate the thought that went into it.
Thanks to the compact packing, I couldn’t believe the box contained all these items! Besides a number of facial masks, there were several makeup and skincare products inside.
The Prism Star and Prism Star Dot Eye Shadows made me smile as soon as I saw them. According to Nature Republic, they are two of the brand’s top-selling products.
It’s not difficult to understand why – they are not only beautiful in the pan, they are also pigmented and wear very well.
The Age Slick Dual Secret Lip Color & Gloss is slightly blockish in packaging but certainly a practical lip product to have.
These wands for the eyes look like they’d be fun to use. From the top: Eye Lover Eyebrow Pencil, Maxi Power Volume Lash Mascara and Eye Lover Point Makeup Remover.
Like many Korean eyebrow pencils, Eye Lover Eyebrow Pencil has a spooly end (love this feature). One of the caps is a mirror that looks like a dental mirror. :P I’m not too fond of it because it’s a tad small but it will suffice when one’s in a pinch. What I really like about this pencil is its sharply angled nib, perfect for stroking colour onto the brows.
The packaging of the Pinetree Urban Detox Clay Mask intrigues me – the bottom looks like a manual juicer!
I was happy to see that the Forest Garden Premium Cleanser Oil contains argan oil, also known as Morocco’s liquid gold because of its restorative and anti-ageing properties.
Okay, who’s thinking ‘genie in a bottle’? Isn’t the packaging of this cleansing oil adorable?!
I have purchased quite a few products from Nature Republic, so this gift box filled with items I’ve not yet tried was a delightful surprise! I’m actually quite impressed by the quality and packaging of its products, hence my continued patronage. Nature Republic seems like a somewhat low-profile Korean brand in Singapore but I hope its products speak for themselves. Happily, the brand celebrates its first birthday this month and will open its fourth store at Parkway Parade very soon.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Nature Republic!
