Today, I would love to share sheet mask from Nature Republic. First impression for the name of the brand giving me huge confident in using their products as "nature" means "good for skin"
(*in my opinion though*)
NATURE REPUBLIC REAL NATURE MASK SHEET - ROSE
From Wikipedia - Nature Republic is a cosmetic brand utilizes natural ingredients for their products. Their brand's philosophy is "A Sense of the Beginning" (Hmm..quite impressive!! Love their philosophy)
From some random website - Nature Republic Real Nature Mask Sheet Rose contains Damaks Rose Extract that provides clear skin tone, helps to moisturize and revitalize skin. The sheet mask with three layers of cellulose provides essence penetrates deep into skin and increases skin absorption potential.
HOW TO USE
After washing the face, apply toner to prepare the skin for the next step of skin care. Open the pouch, pull out the mask and place on the face, using the eyes area to align correctly. Remove after 10-20 minutes and gently pat for better absorption.
Tips from myself: Refrigerate mask for more cooling effect
Leave for 30 minutes if your skin is dry just like me :(
Remove the sheet mask from chin to forehead to prevent skin sagging
Let's take a minute to adore how beauties is this packaging.. when I first saw the packaging, I fall in love immediately. The colors are so vibrant and refreshing. I know, I might be crazy for loving the mask's packaging but first look is always the most IMPORTANT! There are two parts of languages at the back of the packaging - Korean & English. They give clear instructions on how to use the mask.
SCENT & TEXTURE
The rose scent is too strong!! It lingered around once I opened the packaging and the scent still available even after 30 minutes. I felt as if I was pouring roses-scent talcum powder all over my face, definitely not a big fan of the scent. If you're into roses, then this is for you. Though, the sheet mask fit me decently. The size of the sheet mask is pretty huge which I have to do a little folding at the corner, but bigger is always better than smaller. I've no complaint on that :)
First impression, I'm really loving the packaging..a lots! I think Nature Republic did such a great job in designing pretty packaging. In fact, I think most Korean brands did very well in designing cute packaging. I like the size of the sheet mask as not many sheet masks suits my "big-sized face" well. But not the scent though, it's too strong that I almost suffocated with the smells (too exaggerate!)
As you can see from the before & after below, there was not much improvement in my skin after using the mask. My skin was dry in the "before" photo as I stayed most of the time in air-conditioning room, but as promised the mask did gave moisturizing effect to my skin. There is no brightening effect here and there was not much changes in pores size too. After removing the mask, my skin felt sticky due to the leftover essence on my skin.I tried to wait for few minutes to let the essence absorbed into my skin, yet the stickiness was still around that I have to wash it off.

-give moisturizing effects pretty well to my skin, as promised
-the sheet mask fit perfectly, although smaller-face might need to do little folding
-the packaging is cute!
-the rose-scents is too strong for my liking
-no brightening effects
-no visible results in minimizing the pores
-the leftover essence cause stickiness
No... I don't like the stickiness from the leftover essence and I think the scents is too strong for my liking. I may try out other scents from the same line, but not rose again. If you're the one who suffer with dry skin, this is definitely a sheet mask for you.
