Nature Republic Pinetree Urban Detox Essence
All products from this Korean brand contain a unique blend of purified water collected from renowed sources around the world. It includes various medicinal plants extracts, and natural prescriptions from ancient times.
Evidently I don't speak nor read Korean, thus I can't explain the benefits and state the ingredients due to the lack of English explanations on the packaging. This is a major shortcoming on most of the products I came across at the store.
I ventured into the store sometime around 11am back in July, and was the only customer at that time. The sales assistant was busy on the phone while I browsed around for something to buy. This essence caught my attention and I had to alert the SA to understand the product better. She seemed a tad confused and gave me an explanation with her eyes on the standee nearby with its description. Bleh!
The lotion contains natural sea pine extracts which is a powerful antioxidant and is effective in decreasing inflammation and eliminating free radicals better than Vitamin C and Vitamin E. The lightweight texture absorbs quickly and can be used alone or with a moisturizer if your skin is more on the dry side. I find it very suitable for my combination skin, leaving my skin decently hydrated, without leaving any greasy residue on my hands and face.
In fact it keeps shine at bay and I noticed lesser breakouts, sans the hormonal ones. It also has a pleasant mild teatree-like scent. I will re-purchase this again since it works well for me.
