REVIEW : Nature Republic "Fresh Steam Cream"

Hello! Today I'm going to review a product that recently really really helped my skin. It's Nature Republic "Fresh Steam Cream" which contain Shea Butter and great for oily skin. It retails for KRW 31.000 - super expensive, but if you got to buy these in Korea, it's almost always on 50% discount - so I can say it's retail for KRW 15.500.



It's said that the packaging is Limited Edition - I bought these since last year, and it's still available until today. I really need to rave about this product, because I used to hate it so much! Just not until 2-3 weeks ago, when the weather got real dry and it's the only moisturizer I have at the moment so I have no choice but to use it. And it works like magic!

This cream comes with 3 variants, and each have different level of 'moisturizing effects' as the Fresh is the lowest (and also help to stop excess oil), then the second is "Moist Steam Cream" (green) and the most moisturizing is "Ultra Steam Cream" (pink).




On the packaging it stated :
"This fresh cream combines shea butter with hot steam technology for oily and combination skin."

As I said before, I got this a while back and I don't have the picture of the box it comes with. And also it come with a little spatula for scooping out product - so it's good for the hygienic reasons. Although it's weird enough, I actually got no spatula! It contain 100ml of product which is actually quite nice.



The cream texture is doesn't actually resembles cream, it's more like gel-like texture. First when you apply it, it will feel very cooling and refreshing, then after you blend it to your skin, the steam started to work - it will started warming up. Especially near the nostrils, it almost felt like I breathed out steams :/ definitely not the best feeling ever. But I've definitely grow used to the feeling.

The product does have a light, citrusy scent. I can't smell it though after it was blended. After application I can feel my skin felt real smooth and moisturized! It's definitely a thicker moisturizer, because you can totally feel it on your skin, it's not really disappeared into the skin - that's why I liked these more for night usage.



Funny thing is, I never got recommended by anyone but two of friends also got this and we hated the product! Even they started to use it on their body just to get rid of the product as fast as they could! lol

Anyway, I was forced to use this product everyday because my skin cracked - yes, my nose was cracking because it is really super dry, especially in my room because we still use air conditioner. After only a few days, suddenly I realize my skin got cleaner! Less blemish, less acne, and the best of all, no cracks!

can you see Shin Sekyung sign over there?

I still not really fond of the 'steam' feeling after applied to my face, but it's proved that it is actually works in make my face less oilier and just making my face better overall! Now I got to wear lighter BB creams instead of heavy duty foundations <3 Right now I only use this at night, and still looking for a good day moisturizer for oily skin (I'm planning to get Dr. Jart+ once I got my moneeeh!)

Overall, I recommend this product! Especially it's one of NP's main product, you'll get shoved in the face with these when you come to the store anyway! And you don't want me to go preaching about the packaging - it's one reason why I want to get it in the first place, without even thinking. I'm telling ya, it's a good stuff!

  1. This sounds very interesting... I heard that it's a dupe for some Japanese creams but works better.

  5. This product seems really interesting and it's smart to use it at night since it doesn't absorb as much :)
