Finally I'm on my last beauty item from my November BNT Beauty Box! This time I have the Booster, Emulsion and Cream from the best selling Snail Solution Line of the brand, Nature Republic.
I was really intrigued and quite excited to try this product out particularly because EXO is endorsing the brand. Hello, 12 handsome guys are endorsing this brand, it might be good!
But then... I read Kim's review on this product and hesitated quite a bit because there were some things that she didn't like about it and I guess I had to try it for myself to see if it's a yay or nay.
Basically, this product is derived from snail slime which possesses medicinal properties and treats a variety of skin condition. It moisturizes and protects skin, helps promote the natural healing process, enhances skin's ability to recover, dissolves dying cells, triggers skin regeneration and repair and helps the skin produce antimicrobials that fight infection. It also treats acne, stretch marks, scars and sun damage.
The packaging for this line is snail colored themed since everything is in olive green and yellow. The booster and emulsion is in a travel sized, hard plastic bottles which is a pain in the neck in terms of dispensing the product. I wish they came in a thinner, squeezable plastic bottle instead so I wouldn't find it so hard to actually get some product on my hand. As for the cream, it comes in a heavy, sturdy and big jar that is quite frankly a waste of packaging since the product itself is in a smaller, hollow plastic container inside. Each are labeled with different numbers - Booster 90, Emulsion 80 and Cream 70. I'm not really sure how those number play out for the use of the products but my initial guess was it's for the order of product application. I did some research and this is what I found:
If anybody can translate this for me and let me know what the order for the entire skin care line I would very much appreciate it. It's confusing because as I can see in the photo above there are other products of the same number but in a different order. It would be much efficient if the products came in a box with English directions but alas, these product just came in a plastic set. As Kim also pointed out in her own review of this product, you can easily mistake the booster and emulsion for one or the other and you can very easily apply the products in the wrong order.
The last step is the Cream application which is an opaque white color and has a more sticky or tacky feel to it rather than being plain slimy and slippery in comparison to the Booster and Emulsion.
