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

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.
