Nature Republic delivers a package of aloe vera-based product lines. That’s right; Nature Republic has now transformed the spiky, green gem that everyone’s heard of as the ‘plant of immortality’ exclusively into our daily skincare product.
NATURE REPUBLIC Soothing and Moisture Aloe Vera Product Line is a beauty line from Korea for all skin type. Commonly known as the most effective skin soothers, Nature Republic’s combination of natural ingredients such as pure aloe vera can help protect, nourish and soothe your skin.
Nature Republic Aloe Vera 80% Cleansing Gel Foam
The Nature Republic Aloe Vera 80% Cleansing Gel Foam removes impurities and residues effectively with the aloe vera extract in the form of gel foam.
According to the package, the cleanser is made of water, dipropylene gycon, alcohol, fragrance and so forth. Therefore, it is not recommendable to individuals who have allergy to alcohol and artificial fragrance contact.
The packaging is simple with a light green design. It is pretty much bigger than normal squeeze tube but is actually quite sturdy.
- APPERANCE AND FRAGRANCE
The cleanser has a transparent gel texture and is refreshing when applied on your skin. Besides, it’s creamy like texture gives a sense of cooling along with a faint aloe vera smell.
- HOW TO USE
Firstly, wet your face and qqueeze a pea size amount a on your hand. Lightly massage it on your face after making it foamy for about a minute. Lastly, rinse it with warm water.
The cleanser cleanses impurities well and is not sticky at all. It softens, freshen and balance your skin. As its main purpose is to provide the aloe vera moisturizing effect, it does not make your skin feeling dry and tight. Besides, it also removes waterproof foundation and doesn’t result in clogged pores.

2. Nature Republic Aloe Vera 90% TonerThe Nature Republic Aloe Vera 90% Toner is formulated with 90% natural aloe vera which effectively soothes and moisturizes skin.
The toner which is said to have “6-Free system” which is “free from Paraben, mineral oil, artificial pigment, animal raw material, Benzophenone and Talc”. However this product contained alcohol and fragrance, therefore, it is not recommendable if you have sensitive skin.
The toner is stored in a bottle which has a simple design. It has a green bottle body and bottle cap which is made out of plastic.
- APPEARANCE AND FRAGRANCE
It has a slight smell of alcohol along with the mild aloe vera scent in which I assume the reason why it gives a sense of cooling on the skin.
- HOW TO USE
Firstly, pour some toner onto your cotton pad and start applying it gently on your face. Gently sweep it upward and let it dry before applying the moisturizer.
It gives a cool and refreshing feeling to the skin which remains for awhile. Just like normal toner, it is very watery, but is able to be absorbed quite fast. Basically, it balances the pH of your skin. In my opinion, it is just a basic toner which has moisturizing effect.

This toner is available at Lazada.my, Hermo.my and other Nature Republic outlets in Malaysia with an average price of RM32.50 for 160ml.
