Updated Review: Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Moisture Watery Cream

In a previous post, I reviewed Nature Republic’s Super Aqua Max Moisture Watery Cream.  You can read my original post here, where I went into detail about the feel and moisturizing effect of this cream. Overall, while I liked the cream as a day moisturizer, I wasn’t really sure how beneficial the ingredients were, so ultimately I gave this moisturizer an 8/10, but I only gave the ingredients 7/10.

Well, on a particularly boring evening, I decided to actually do some research on the dozens of different extracts in this moisturizer, and I am now pleasantly surprised with what I found!  Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Moisture Watery Cream is actually filled with antioxidants and soothing ingredients, some have been used for centuries in Chinese medicine.  I realized that I needed to update my original review and give this moisturizer a new grade.  So the following is an expansion on my original review, with more details on the ingredients.

Review: Mizon Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule

In a previous post, I gushed about my first Korean skincare *love*: Mizon’s All in One Snail Repair Cream.  While this cream worked great for me, I was a little concerned about several acne-inducing ingredients in it, so I decided to switch to Mizon Snail Repair Intensive Ampoule.

So if you read my previous post on Nature Republic’s Combination Watery Cream, you’re probably surprised that I would give anything else in this line a chance.  But, I received a sample of this cream from Korea Depart, and opened the sample with trepidation.  I was happily surprised with a slight smell of roses coming from this cream (and not the obnoxious Axe deodorant smell that was in the Combination Watery Cream).  So I found someone from Hawaii selling a bottle of Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Moisture Watery Cream on Amazon, and I went for it.

Review: Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream

Wow, this product’s name is a mouthful.  I bought this product because it’s gotten a lot of good reviews, came recommended on http://www.sokoglam.com and was voted best moisturizer by Allure magazine in Korea.  Sadly, I was pretty disappointed.  I gave Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery Cream a good try – used this product for about a week – but finally I couldn’t stand it anymore and had to switch back to my old moisturizer.

Review: Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream

This product is my first real Korean skincare *love*.  I was planning on using it for a full month before writing a review, since I normally don’t see results from a product until at least several weeks.  But unbelievably I saw results by day 2 and after only 3 weeks I’m a true believer in the power of snail extract!

Before Mizon All in One Snail Repair Cream, I’ve never used a product that delivered so many of its promises so quickly!  This cream definitely made me a believer in the magic of Korean skincare.  Ok, enough gushing; let’s get to the actual details…
