NATURE REPUBLIC FRESH GREEN TEA 70 TONER (Part I)

On last Friday, I took a walk to Tunjungan Plaza and went into The Body Shop to buy their Tea Tree Toner, unfortunately, they’re running out of it. So I walked to look around and dropped by at Nature Republic counter. There I saw this product and could not help my curiousity but to buy it.


Here I’ll write my First Impression on

NATURE REPUBLIC FRESH GREEN TEA 70 TONER
Hydration & Soothing Toner with Fresh Green Tea 180 ml/ 6.08 fl.oz

 This is the bottle and the box



  
These are several info on the carton box (pic above) :
MD WATER
7 NON ADDED FORMULAS
ECO- FRIENDLY PAPER
BRAILLE FOR THE BLIND 


The bottom of the box said : PRINTED WITH SOY INK

The box even has braille printing on it, how thoughful.

 The (Braille) dots on the box surface.
There are 2 instruction label on the box. One is the original printing of the carton box which is written in English and Korean. The other is sticker label written in Indonesian. Both of them has different arrangement in the ingredients list.
I wonder… This is not the first time I found something like this on Nature Republic package.

The left is Indonesian sticker label. The right is the original instruction printed on the box.
(Sorry for the low res picture, but I already write it down, read my info below)

Now I’ll write the info on the both label so u can compare it urself.

Well, look at the ingredients list, see the differences?

Price : Rp. 82. 600 (I got discount, the real price is about 118k, don’t remember, cmiiw)  

-------------------------------------------------------

7 free (paraben, triethanolamine, mineral oil, artificial dyes, animal material, benzophenone, talc)
-------------------------------------------------------

Packaging : Simple rounded transparent Green plastic bottle, with little hole to dispense the product. The bottle is sturdy enough. The cap is well tightened. And the hole of the bottle is pretty useful to control amount of product we want to take out. It’s safe even if u drop it, it wont be broken or spilled as long as the cap is in closed position. The size may not travel friendly but it’s ok for me.

Texture : Watery clear Liquid, Moist and fresh when applied, has a little bit cooling sensation, with fresh green tea scent.

Scent : Fresh Green Tea scent with a hint of alcohol-y smell. I can say that it’s medium scented. Some of u may be bothered. But for me it’s fine.

I’ve been using it about 2 days until I made this post. I tried to apply it after cleansing gel, alone, and after facial wash.
Lately my skin has been in a dry condition and I need something with hydrating properties. This toner felt moist on my skin but not overly rich.
My face skin feels cleared, hydrated and bit brightened after using this. This one is non- greasy in my opinion.
In my opinion, it’s suitable for all skin types. Altough I think that super duper oily skin who don’t like moist toner may not like it. Those who hate alcohol and fragrance may not like it too.
I have to careful with nearest area of mouth and eyes when using it. Because if it reaches those area, I feel a bit ‘stinging’ on my skin. The evaporation of the scent little bit bothers my eyes too.

Here is the commercial pic I took randomly from google


Ok, this is my first impression on this product and I’ll use it in some more time before I write a full review on it. So this post is to be continued in Part II.

Do u use any product from Nature Republic Brand? Share here, please^^ I’d like to know ur experience..
