Luxury in skincare was unheard of to me until I got this Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream from BNT news. This cream redefined luxury for me! The Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream is a huge hit in Korea and is referred to as the ‘Miracle cream’ by even celebs.The Korean deputy Prime Minister Choi Kyung Hwan also recommends Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream. Natures Republic released base products such as Ginseng Royal Silk Essence after the tremendous popularity of Ginseng Royal Watery Cream. With ginseng extracts, pure 99% gold, royal jelly and gold silkworm as the ingredients, I was in pure shock (ecstasy) when I received Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream from BNT News.
Nature Republic, which was launched in March of 2009, represents cosmetic products that provide health and joy to the lives of consumers through the natural beauty energy found from the cleanest areas of the world.
Just like what its slogan ‘Journey to Nature’ expresses, the company not only is restricted within the natural ingredients of the region but also centers on ingredients such as Shea butter, Argan and Aloe that have been certified by centuries of human culture and lifestyle to expand their product and brand story.

What it Claims:

It’s ginseng extracts supply nutrients to your skin and silk amino acid balances skin’s oil and moisture.This anti-oxidant and anti-aging cream is certified by Korean Institute For Skin And Clinical Sciences for its moisture, wrinkles and elasticity improvement.
I could speak on and on about the packing of Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream. It comes in a lot of sturdy heavy packaging- with a solid glass finish plastic tub with a very unique design. The product is safely kept inside this vault like case with a turn-open lid and a spatula for hygienic application. The entire tub is kept inside a sturdy green square box with high quality minimalist design. Looks very pricey in my vanity! The writings were in Korean and I had to do a bit research to find out what exactly went into the cream.
Like- have a look at the cream- isn’t that too pretty to use up? The cream itself is a transparent gel, but with 12mg of 99% gold in it, it has the shimmery effect. The cream feels light and water based. The smell clearly indicates alcohol presence with a slight strong fragrance- though very good one. The slippery oily feel indicated the sillicones in the cream too.

How to Use:
They say it is best used as the last step in skincare in morning and night. Looking at the amount of silicone in it, it would definitely be the last step as it would not allow any other product to seep through. To read more on the correct order of applying products, read my post here. I found it useful as a great night cream after I apply my essence. I use this amazing essence I reviewed earlier last month- you can read it here. a little product goes a long way with Nature Republic Ginseng Royal Silk Watery Cream. This ‘watery’ cream is a lot more moisturizing than you would expect!
Nowadays, since it is drying winters in Delhi, I use this along with my foundation to combat dry skin. It keeps my skin hydrated the whole day! The gold particles melt down into your skin and gives it a supple dewy effect. The very thought of having gold particles on your face, makes it luxurious and appealing! The after-feel of the cream is a mixture of moisturized and slippery.
