I have shopped the most at the Nature Republic, Etude House and The Face Shop stores in Seoul. I have a huge collection of their products. And what I love about shopping for cosmetics in Korea is that they always give out free samples with qualifying purchases. At Nature Republic they usually give Aqua Masksheets for purchases above 10000 KRW. And I usually cross that limit 😉
Not all stores hand out samples but the ones that I visit usually do even during Sales. I received almost 8 of these mask sheets from Nature Republic at different shopping occasions but never used them. I thought they were meant for men, I don’t know why I just had that impression. It might be because of the plain packaging or something. SO anyway I finally used one in a hurry and I have been using up my Aqua masksheets ever since.
Nature Republic Aqua masksheet – super aqua max combination watery mask sheet – is more liquidy than any other mask sheet I have ever tried in Korea. Even in closed pack, it feels water-y. the reason might be “Sea water” alongwith key ingredients water and glycerin. It is very moisturizing to the skin.
If have not already guessed, I have totally tried to show off my Hello Kitty iPad cover. And I made it. Super easy way to glam up plain clear cases! Moving on to the review!
Directions of use (directly from the packaging):
1. After washing face, apply toner.
2. Pull out masksheet from package and unfold. Carefully adjust the mask to your face contour.
3. Remove masksheet after 10-15 minutes. Gently pat any remaining formula into skin

I like this mask sheet better than any other masksheets I have tried from Nature Republic. The masksheet feels cooler to the skin than other mask sheet maybe because of its water content and is very moisturizing. It does not have a pronounced scent even though fragrance is listed in the ingredients section. I have dry skin but I think this will work for oil skin types as well!
