Nature Republic Collagen Trial Set

It's already been three weeks since I finished this trial set so I hope I can still remember my experience with it.  Why collagen?  Because my face loves collagen based skincare products.  I know, many would say that collagen is also absorbed by skin either by injection or ingestion but I really don't care :P

Nature Republic Collagen Dream 90 Trial Set
I bought this trial set from bhappywithme from Ebay because I wanted to try other brand's collagen products and at the same time to give my skin a break from the Etude House collagen cream as my skin; when already accustomed to a product, tend to react wildly (like the minions!!!)

it comes with a booster aka toner, emulsion, essence and a cream
This trial set did last for 15 days in my hands (yup that long even if used it twice a day), so it's also perfect for those long vacay (I wanted a long vacation now na!).

Skin Booster (pinagandang pangalan for toner)- 20ml
Emulsion- 20 ml
Essence- 5ml
Cream- 8ml

Let's start with the skin booster which is just a toner (really).  It's thick in consistency like an ampoule and has a yellowish color.  I usually apply this with a cotton pad but sometimes I just love to put a small amount of it in my palms and pat it on my face for faster absorption because it takes a while before my skin absorb this toner because of it's consistency but at the same time (because of it's consistency) it also already gives my skin a little moisture.  (gosh, I'm abusing the words consistency and because).

From yesstyle.com:

Nature Republic Collagen Dream 90 Skin Booster
Antioxidant enriched toner revives and nourishes skin with acai berry, a powerful superfood packed with Omega 3, 6, 9 and Vitamin E, minimizing cellular damage and restoring skin's youthful vibrancy. Deep sea marine collagen increases skin's collagen reserve, allowing skin's outer and inner layers to maintain an optimum collagen level to keep skin moist and supple. Suitable for all skin types.

Next is the emulsion which is (as you can see in the below picture) white in color.  Just like other emulsions, this one has a runny almost like lotion consistency that gives my face a moist effect.  The box says 90 but this one is just 70 and I do not know the difference except for the numbers written.

From sasa.com:

Nature Republic Collagen Dream 70 Emulsion
Contains marine-collagen derived from deep sea in Indonesia and SYNiorage, which helps inner and outer skin retain higher level of collagen. It also contains extract of Northern Brazil Asai Berry, which is known as an effective antioxidant. With these highly effective ingredients, the Nature Republic Collagen Dream helps to keep your skin moisture, elastic and healthy.

and this my friends is a photo of what the products look like
The essence is my favorite among the four.  The consistency surprised me because it's no watery and almost looks like a gel cream.  My face absorbs this quickly and even in just small amount moisturizes my skin well that I sometimes skip applying the cream.  It also makes my skin looked nourish.  Like it very much!

From yesstyle.com:

Nature Republic Collagen Dream 70 Essence
Rich and hydrating essence rejuvenates skin cells and stimulates collagen production with potent antioxidants and marine derived collagen. Marine collagen boosts skin's collagen level, aiding skin's outer and inner layers to maintain a higher level of collagen. Antioxidant enriched acai berry then halts cellular damage for noticeably smoother skin with a youthful glow. After cleansing and toning, gently massage a small amount of essence all over skin and neck and follow with emulsion.

And lastly, the cream which is the heaviest among the four.  I think this cream is more suitable in places with colder temperature.  I use this at the end of summer in the Philippines and there's this day that my face looks oily so I only apply it at night.

From zalora.com:

Nature Republic Collagen Dream 70 Cream
This highly effective anti-aging face cream is teeming with marine collagen and antioxidants that help keep skin moist, elastic and with renewed health. It also works to keep the skin smooth and glowing with youth.

All these products are almost odorless by the way.
