Are you a guy who thinks skincare is only for girls?
Or perhaps you’re the kind who doesn’t give a crap about skincare? (say wha?)
Or maybe you know a guy who’s like that?
Well, I DO know a guy like that. Fu is the kind who’s so lazy/not bothered with skincare that he would just slap his face with water or BODY SOAP (the horror!) and be done if he could get away with it.
His skin gets awfully dehydrated that it cracks and peels, yet it is oily at the same time. Very tricky skin on a very lazy boy. You can imagine the herculean task I had at hand trying to get him to keep to any kind of skincare routine!
However, I’m happy to say that… I succeeded!!! I know I did because he recently finished up the ENTIRE BOTTLE of product I got him, after applying it religiously every. single. day.
I bought said magical item on our trip to Korea earlier this year. I randomly saw it while shopping and decided to get it for him because it looked perfect for my purposes.
“All-in-one” are the magical words here.
This single bottle contains toner, lotion and essence! They compacted 3 steps into just 1! These people really know what they’re doing, because it’s perfect for the lazy guy.
The shocking thing is now that he has finished the bottle, he’s actually complaining that his face feels dry and that he misses applying it! He was actually whining (don’t tell him I said that) about the discomfort and even asked me for a new bottle! An entirely changed man, he is.
Here’s what I got out of a quick interview with him:
✓ Face feels moisturized and comfortable
✓ Cooling feeling on face (but it’s NOT the minty menthol kind of cooling)
✓ Gel-cream texture is easy to apply
✓ Pleasant smell
✘ Nothing (!!)
I thought I’d add on my own likes and dislikes too:
✓ THE FACT THAT HE USES IT EVERYDAY!!!
✓ His face feels softer! (even if it doesn’t appear to be so)
✘ Difficult to obtain
✘ Strange name. Did they mean African bird? Or bird of Africa? What is Africa bird?!!
If you’re interested in getting this for a lazy guy in your life (or perhaps even yourself, heh), check out your local Nature Republic store! Outside of Korea, I know there are Nature Republic stores in Singapore and Hong Kong. The rest of us will just have to buy it online; via Amazon or the like.
Fu finished up his bottle while we were in USA, and was not quite placated by the temporary Olay replacements I gave him. Luckily we are heading back to Japan now and he can use the backup bottle we bought in Korea :D
