A while back, I wrote about my friends returning from a trip to Korea and bringing back Nature Republic products for me. Amongst the items brought back were 3 products from the White Therapy line--micro bubble foam cleanser, toner and emulsion. I have been using it for a couple of months now so I think that I can give a decent review on it.
First of all, what Nature Republic is all about as explained on the product box:
Here is the information for the micro bubble foam cleanser:
Here is the information for the toner:
And lastly, here is the information for the emulsion:
The micro bubble foam cleanser comes in a typical cleanser tube. The cleanser itself is typical in that it's a white cream and it does foam up quite nicely. It feels nice a smooth while you are washing your face. After rinsing your face, it feels quite nice although after a while, I do notice some tightening of my skin. I do have admit that is quite typical of most cleansers for me though.
The toner and the emulsion come in quite heavy glass/ceramic containers. It is quite nice although my one gripe about it is that it is quite a thick white container and there is no way to tell exactly how much product you have used and how much is left. I personally prefer nice plastic containers to glass because I have a tendency to knock things over.
The toner has a consistency of water, which is quite typical of most toners. I usually apply it with a cotton pad after washing my face. It is quite light and refreshing.
The emulsion I usually apply after applying a serum. It has a light, creamy consistency. It is neither too light nor too heavy.
As for the whitening properties, I haven't noticed anything. This line does seem to moisturize nicely and I haven't had any adverse reactions to it. It does have a floral scent, which I would say is a little bit stronger than a light scent but it doesn't linger. To me, this is nothing exceptional but neither is it inferior. I think that it's a nice line to use as a daily skincare regime. I can't say that I would purchase it again since it's something that's not available here but if it were, I'm not sure that I would repurchase it. I would probably prefer to try out another line but if it were given to me again, I would definitely use it.
As a side note, for a product that is supposed to be based on natural substances, it sure does have a lot of ingredients in it. Granted it does say that it combines with state-of-the-art technology but I was surprised by the long list of ingredients.
