First mask sheet I tried from my Korea Cosmetics lovelies is Nature Republic's Snail Mask Sheet. Nature Republic is the latest Korean Brand that opens locally. It's also a brand that is endorsed by Jang Geun Suk. And for a time I was head over heels in love with Sukkie, as in. I devoted a blog site of my crazy ramblings for him, well until I realized that he's way too prettier than me. No chance there for me even in the drama land (I know right, dream away!;-D But I really did like him even in his pre-A.N.JELL days in Beethoven's Virus) ;-D Anyhow, seriously, I had a taste of escargot on my skincare regimen via the snail cream, so I know how good it is, but this snail mask exceeded my expectation. :-D
|The mask sheet is by far the thinner that I tried. So I was extra careful when handling it.|
|The essence is a bit on the watery side. But the mask itself is not soaking wet, so when I applied it there was little issue on dripping.|
|Mask when laid flat. The mask was shaped in circle. I got a good fit, and it's surprisingly strong despite the thin material.|
|Mask on. It's almost translucent.|
Overall, it's the best mask I've ever tried so far.;-D Because I actually noticed that there's visible lifting or tightening effect. I know, so yes, it totally exceeded my expectation for a momentary pampering treat. Will I repurchase? I would definitely check it out in the local Nature Republic shop. I do hope that they have it here though. I'll let you know asap. I'm not sure though about the price because I can't seem to find this specific mask yet, they mostly have the Snail Therapy Hydro Gel Mask but not the Essence Mask Sheet, but this is from Seoul so this must be the most recent line. And while I'm at it, I heard from a friend that the Nature Republic Snail line is actually one of the highly recommended back there when they visited (like a week ago), so I'm hoping to give it a try too. :-D
I just checked on the FB Page of Nature Republic Philippines that they'll actually be giving out a Snail Mask Sheet with JGS' face on it among several other freebies for tomorrow's SM North Edsa Opening. How nice?! Hmmm, should I drive myself to Manila? So tempting!
Have you tried the Snail line from Nature Republic, or other brands? Please do share. :-D
