Event: Nature Republic Philippines Launching


Fact 1, I'm a huge fan of Korean Cosmetics, actually, everything-Korean! ;-D Fact 2, I had a devoted blog site of my fleeting crazy ramblings of Jang Geun Suk, oh well, until I realized that I can't be just a noona or even his ahjumma forever, more so that Sukkie is getting prettier every time. I said this before, there's just so little chance of making him my jagiya even in the drama land (I know right, dream away! ;-D No bashing please. But I really do like him even in his pre-A.N.JELL days in Beethoven's Virus) Fact 3, I'm sold to going all-natural in my skin care, especially that I really do lavishly bathe my skin with them almost all the time. Nature Republic, the latest Korean Beauty brand is making its debut in what is now a highly competitive arena amidst competing Korean Beauty Brands. And it's feeding all my addiction, even my capriciousness for that matter. Last November 11 (11.11.11), they inaugurated their third branch in the county, SM Fairview. Yes, come hell or high water, I made sure not to miss it.

I missed the 10am bloggers event. I arrived around 1pm. Jang Geun Suk everywhere! ;-D  Showcased are bestsellers skin care and beauty lines of Nature Republic. 1) Fermented Rice. 2) Aloe Vera. 3) Super Aqua Max. 4) Blusher Shine Blossom. 5) Aqua Collage Solution Marine Hydrogel Mask. 6) The Bamboo of Damyang. 7) Passion & Rose Lipstick
Although a relatively newcomer in the Philippines, Nature Republic is a certified bona fide player in the international market. Born and bred in Korea, NATURE REPUBLIC is a new cosmetic brand utilizing state-of-the-art facilities and processes combined with the most natural ingredients gathered from all over the world to produce world-class, superior quality products distinctly and exclusively its own. 

"Consider some of its precious ingredients, as stated in their tagline, from earth: medicinal plants and healing flowers, seawater from around the world, used as prescriptions from ancient times based on natural concepts and as mother nature intended, processed and formulated through modern technology. Ingredients such as: Blue Lagoon water from Polynesia; Glacial Water from the Alps; Deep Sea Water from Greenland; Ocean Area Pine Tree from France; Hawaiian Hibiscus; Madagascar Butdelria; Morocco Monoi; gold Caviar; North American Kawai; and other similarly exotic and efficacious extracts and substances."
Glimpse of Nature Republic Philippines' stores. Sharing the same passion...we all love-everything-Korean! :-D
Free Gifts with purchase. Feels like Christmas.;-D
Awww...Jang Geun Suk's Eels will fall in love with these! Nature Republic’s main spokesperson and endorser is the popular Korean and International actor and heartthrob Jang Geun Suk (JGS/Sukkie to his fans ;-D), whose following not only spans his own body of artistic work but the products he personally vouches for, particularly, NATURE REPUBLIC. He's also joined by Goo Hara, Park gyuri and Kang Jiyoung of KARA.
More opening day gifts...Super Origin Collagen BB Cream, UV Lock Ultra Milk Sun, Snail Therapy Mask Sheet ( I tried this. Love it.), The Bamboo of Damyang Moisture Fluid and Balancing Toner.
Such is their popularity that the Aloe Vera Soothing Gel has already sold over 2 million since being recently released in the market...no joke here, it's just Day 1, SOLD OUT! I'm out to try one of these next time.
Nature Republic Nail Care lines. Love these. ;-D
Nature Republic Snail Therapy lines come highly recommended. And I know first hand, the goodness of snail mucin. Escargot love! ;-D In this line is the popular Snail Therapy Hydro Gel Mask, that utilizes the benefits of mucin (the healing and moisture-retaining extract from snails), antioxidants, and other high quality therapeutic ingredients to intensify the moisturizing process and improve skin elasticity, is an innovative product while in keeping with NATURE REPUBLIC’s the from earth principle. 
Nature Republic Wink for Eye Collection
Perfume Lip Balms. Pretty Tree Auto Lip Liners. 
Swatched. Lip Liners come with a lip brush. I love the versatility I made sure to get one.
Awww...I just had to take my picture with JGS. ;-D Thank you so much to Nature Republic Philippines for having me. I appreciate the accommodation albeit missing the scheduled event. plus the whole SA's of the branch for commendable customer service.
There's so much to see. I don't want to preempt your trips. So I daresay that Nature Republic offers me one of the best retail therapy, and if your a big Hallyu fan, I say that a visit is in order. So many freebies even. The products are also at a very friendly price. And if you get their membership/discount card, your next visits guarantee you 10% off. They have a branch in Festival Mall, SM North Edsa, and SM Fairview. And naturally since I drove all the way to Fairview, I just couldn't miss out on the whole fanfare, and the adrenaline rush of shopping! Anyhow, I had some extra discounts to take advantage of. ;-D

I've been waiting for that store to open for the longest time! I super love Park Gyuri of KARA and I'm a fan of Jang Geunsuk as well, so I'm excited to try the products that they're endorsing. I'm definitely going to buy their snail products.

Hi! I was searching for Nature Republic ad materials (the ones with JKS on it) and I saw your blog.

The photos are realy nice... I was wondering if I can use your pics on my blog too although what I'll be writing is mainly about JKS (I'll give proper credit naman po).

I really hope you will allow it. =^_^=

Chic Sassy Mom said...

About Me

My Photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
