Award-winning Korean brand Skin Republic has made its debut into the UAE skincare market, and is now available in select Boots Pharmacies across the UAE!
The products are as technically advanced as the sci-fi packaging will make you believe. This hypo-allergenic range combines the latest advances in skin care to nourish, rejuvenate and hydrate winter-thirsty skin.
Skin Republic’s nutrient rich ingredients travel deep into the dermis to revive troubled skin, and the secret lies in the Transdermal Delivery System which acts as a second skin helping the dermis absorb the serum faster and more effectively than traditional creams.
Skin Republic masks are not your traditional cream-based formulas. Instead, each package comes with a sheet-mask that looks like a Halloween mask – a simple white cotton fiber with cut out holes for the eyes, mouth and nose.
Why use a sheet mask you ask? A sheet mask is drenched with the nutrient rich serum, and therefore holds the formula onto the face more effectively as it absorbs into the dermis.
I tried out the Stem Cell Plant Protein mask this weekend.
Thought I’d humor you with a selfie!
Application was pretty straightforward, and much faster than slapping on a conventional face mask. You literally just put the mask on!
The package recommended keeping the mask on for 20 minutes. I stuck to this, and managed to freak out my 3 year-old.
On first application, I could feel my skin being hydrated right away. The serum was deliciously cool on contact, and even though the sheet mask was drenched with the product, it was not particularly messy or slippery.
As the clock ticked, the sheet got drier, but not stiff-dry. It came off as easily as it was to apply.
Unlike conventional masks, you don’t need to rinse off this one. The serum basically sets into your skin.
Overall, my face felt refreshed and rejuvenated. I didn’t need to follow up with a moisturizer.
The Stem Cell Plant Protein face mask delivered on its promise to revitalize my skin. The recommended dose is 2 masks per week. I am intrigued to try out the other Skin Republic masks…
Spots + Blemish Face Face Mask: This face mask promises to cleanse the skin’s pores, clear spots and aid in preventing future breakouts with Tea Tree and Salicylic Acid. .
Platinum Lift Face Mask: An anti-oxidant face mask that fights environmental damage.
Brightening Vitamin C Face Mask: Infused with brightening and radiance enhancing ingredients such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E and seven Plant extracts, this mask promises to gently reduce the visible appearance of freckles, age spots and imperfections for an even skin tone.

Collagen Infusion Face Mask: Moisture boosting Collagen and Elastin with Vitamin E promise to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin’s elasticity, tone and firmness.
Would I recommend Skin Republic? After my first trial, I would say yes.
Will it improve skin over time? Only sticking to the prescribed regime can tell.
With all the scientific backing and considerably lower price tag to boot, I would say Skin Republic masks are well worth a try.
I also think a few sachets from Skin Republic would make stylish stocking stuffers for this Christmas!
