This Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream has been a huge hit in Korea. The so-called ‘Miracle Cream‘ was praised by various Korean celebrities and even the Korean deputy prime minister Choi Kyung Hwan recommends it. This cream is supposed to improve wrinkles and to have whitening properties, too, using extracts from ginseng, silk, and royal jelly.
Nature Republic is a Korean brand founded in 2009 and using the slogan ‘journey to nature’. They are one of many Korean brands addressing natural cosmetics and their consumers. One of their most famous products is probably the Nature Republic Aloe Vera Soothing Gel, which comes in this huge container and is super affordable, too. I haven’t tried many products from that brand although many of their products really look interesting…somehow I decide to buy from Innisfree and Etude House in the end. And the moment I’m deciding to buy something from Nature Republic it is usually sold out…But apart from all this, let’s first take a moment and appreciate this gorgeous packaging design of the Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream:
This is absolutely stunning! The cream comes in a very pretty and high-quality box in the signature color green. Inside this box, you will find the square glass jar which is completely made of a see-through material, except the inner part and the lid. I was so surprised and happy when I saw this pretty design for the first time.
The box is surrounded by a paper which contains the necessary information in Korean and in English. You will find the ingredients listed on COSDNA, too. All of them are safe to use and I didn’t experience any breakouts or irritations during the period I used this cream. The key ingredients in the Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream are ginseng extracts, pure 99% gold, royal jelly, and gold silkworm. Its red ginseng extracts supply nutrients to your skin and the silk amino acids balance the skin’s oil and moisture level. Nevertheless, a short note: this cream contains alcohol and silicon.
This anti-oxidant and anti-aging cream is certified by Korean Institute For Skin And Clinical Sciences for its moisture, wrinkles and elasticity improvement. Furthermore, the Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream comes with an included spatula in order to reduce contamination with your fingers. The lid of the jar can be removed by twisting the handle on the top. This is the first time I had a container like that, so I was super excited, although there is actually no reason to be excited in the first place :D It’s a moisturizer after all.
Below the lid, you will find the golden colored gel-type cream. It looks so unusual compared to my regular cream-type moisturizers. If you take a closer look you will see the tiny gold particles inside the cream.
The gel-type cream is easily rubbed into the skin and leaves the skin bouncy and doesn’t feel sticky either. The cream gives your skin a pretty glow, too and you will see some sparkling from the gold occasionally. It feels hydrating, but also stays somehow mostly on top of the skin, nevertheless the skin feels super nice afterward. It can be used day or night, depending on your preferences. I personally prefer to use it as the last step of my night-time routine because it seems to lock the moisture of my previous steps inside. I also like to use it on its own during the daytime, but not combined with my makeup, especially when using glowing BB creams, this makes the BB cream slide around even more. On its own, it works great though!
All together I really like this cream! It has a great design, leaves a nice finish and gives your skin glow. I can definitively understand why it has been so hyped among celebrities, since it feels and looks luxurious, too. Natures Republic released base products such as the Ginseng Royal Silk Essence after the tremendous popularity of Ginseng Royal Watery Cream, too. The Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream retails for 66000 Won, and it is available at Beautytap for 66.00 US$ (check out my Coupons&Discount page for more deals and coupons).
