Moisturiser is a basic need in skincare routine. And I have to admit that sometimes finding the right one will take you ages, especially if you have sensitive-oily-combination-skin, like me. I prefer to use emulsion as moisturiser as it has lighter texture, but still provide the moisture the skin needs. It is also less likely to irritate my skin or cause clogged pores.

So, I will share the emulsion that I have been using for almost 1 year, Nature Republic Argan 20 Steam Emulsion.
The bottle of emulsion comes with a pump. It is definitely more hygienic and great for easier application.
What does it do?
The Nature Republic Argan 20 degrees Steam Emulsion is formulated with fermented argan oil to provide nutrition and firming effects to the skin. Argan oil creates radiant skin and revitalizes damaged skin. The product is absorbed quickly into the skin to keep it smooth and moisturized throughout the day without the greasy feel.
The water-based texture is soft and it feels light on skin. It absorbs quickly to the skin providing the moisture it needs, and leave the skin smooth.
This emulsion gives me sufficient moisture, yet it does not feel sticky nor greasy after application. I could apply bb cream directly on top of the emulsion as it absorbs quickly and it also blends well. And the best part is, the price is affordable (around KRW13,000 ~ EUR12) for 125 ml.
The minor down part is there is slight perfumy-smell. So this emulsion might not be suitable for those who do not prefer any smells in moisturiser. But personally, I quite like the mild smell 🙂
I have been using this emulsion for almost a year, and this has been my second bottle. Yup, I repurchased it because I just love everything about it. I think I will continue to use this emulsion until I find the better one ❤
