Korean Beauty brands have become a staple in American stores from Sephora to Target. With their cute packaging and promise of baby soft skin, it is easy to see why we are so infatuated with k-beauty. Although I love my high priced Korean beauty brands, I recently found out about Nature Republic and I can’t get enough! If you haven’t heard of them yet, you must try them! They have all the benefits of Korean brands you would usually find at Peach and Lily but at much lower prices. They opened a large store in Koreatown after they closed the small location located on Santee Alley in Los Angeles.
As you know, my skin is very sensitive and most brands make me break out. This is not the case with Nature Republic. On my last trip to the store, I ended up buying the Aloe Vera Soothing Gel ( a best seller), the Jeju Sparkling Mud Cleansing Cream, the Hawaiian fresh clay pack, and the Gold Snail Hydrogel Mask Sheet. I loved them all!
The Aloe Vera 92% Soothing Gel was on sale for only $6.99 so I had to buy it. After shaving, it leaves your skin extra soft. It’s even a good gift for any of the men in your life. The soothing gel should be used on irritated or sunburnt skin for a cooling sensation. Buy it here.

The Jeju Sparkling Mud Cleansing Cream was on sale for $9.99. I am so glad I purchased it. It makes taking off my makeup the easiest it has ever been. Anytime I have used the cream, it has left my skin extra soft. Buy it here.
The Hawaiian fresh clay pack was on sale for only $9.99. I loved that it did not leave my face feeling dry like other clay masks. It is made from pure clay and Hawaiian sea water. The formula is ideal for oily skin. I usually use it in the areas of my face that are prone to shine. Buy it here.
The Gold Snail Hydrogel Mask Sheet collagen was only $1.99. To be honest when I first read that the mask was made with snail mucus, I was a bit grossed out. But after researching the benefits of snail mucus on the skin, I decided to buy 3. The first mask left my face feeling softer than usual. I really noticed a difference when I used the second mask, my dark spots have been lightened, and I’m sure I will buy it again and again.
I also recommend the nail polish remover, CC cream, highlighter, Green Tea mask sheet, Hydrogel lip patch, and the Ginseng Royal Silk Gold Hydrogel masks. I told you I’m obsessed.
If you want to go to Nature Republic in person, it is located at 3785 Wilshire Blvd. #107f Los Angeles, CA 90010 it is open every day from 10:00 a.m.- 8:00 p.m.
