I had a mini crisis yesterday when I realized that I’m almost out of Nature Republic Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel, currently my favorite body moisturiser.
I normally don’t freak out over things like this but Nature Republic’s aloe gel is very popular so it is quite hard to come by. In Manila, where there are a number of Nature Republic stores, it is one of the bestsellers so people really hoard. Furthermore, there is no Nature Republic Store in Davao City so I buy my supply from eBay. And luckily for me, a few sellers still have stocks on hand so there’s no need for crisis intervention. :-p
So what do I like about this aloe gel? First, it is a great all-around moisturizer. I have used it as a light face and body moisturizer, and it works great. The manufacturer claims that each tub contains 92% aloe vera and I guess this is the reason why the Nature Republic aloe gel soothes and softens the skin splendidly. Secondly, it is affordable at Php300 per 300 ml tub. Each tub lasts about two months for me as I apply the gel liberally.

One of the Korean skin care brands I really like is Nature Republic. I have the Nature Republic By Flower BB Cream, Fresh Farm Foam Cleanser (Rice), and Omega Wrinkle Filler Mask Sheets.
Nature Republic By Flower BB Cream (P485)
I’m currently using the Nature Republic By Flower BB Cream (01/pink beige) and I find it a little too pink for my skin tone. I know, it was silly of me but I have oily skin that’s very acidic so I had to go for the lighter shade. The BB cream provides medium coverage and I find it easy to blend. It also has a built-in SPF 35 PA++ sunscreen.

The year’s almost over and I already made my last batch of skin care and hair care purchases for 2010. I had the items custom purchased from Seoul through Davao TLC Shop.
Included in this batch are the following:
Somang Keratin SilkProtein Hair Pack (PhP900) and Somang Keratin SilkProtein Hair Aqua Essence (PhP265)– I just love Somang products! And I’m so happy Somang has the hair pack and hair aqua essence in big bottles because both products are excellent for my frizzy hair. I apply the hair pack after every shampoo, leave it on for 5 minutes, and then rinse it off. It leaves my hair soft and manageable sans the greasy feel.
