Nature Republic Real Nature Mask Sheet Green Tea Review
The benefits of Green tea is not particularly new information for us. It has a long list of health and beauty benefits that could put any other ingredient to shame. Not only does it calm your tummy, but it can calm down angry skin too. Due to the various properties of green tea, it has long been embraced by the beauty industry.
This brings me to the sheet mask that I’ll be reviewing today: Nature Republic Real Nature Mask Sheet (Green Tea). Nature Republic is a K-beauty brand that’s extremely popular worldwide.
REAL NATURE GREEN TEA MASK SHEET. Green tea extract deeply moisturizes and helps the skin stay moisturized.
How to Use:
- After washing face, apply toner to prepare the skin for the next step of skin care.
- Open the pouch, pull out the mask, and place on the face, using the eye area to align correctly.
- Remove after 10-20 minutes and gently pat for better absorption.

1-2$, but I bought this directly in Korea and it cost me 10,000₩ for a pack of 10 sheets. That’s roughly 20 pesos each. Such a steal!
I remember buying this mask, I wasn’t really into K-beauty then, or beauty in general, so I asked the sales attendant from the Nature Republic store what she recommended for me. She took one look at my face and she said that I had troubled skin (I was having a serious breakout moment then so I don’t blame her!). She told me to get the Chamomile version of this mask for skin calming purposes and then add the Green Tea version for extra moisture.
The packaging is alright, nothing special. The rest of the Nature Republic Real Nature Mask Sheets are incorporating the same design.
Opening the mask, you can recognize the smell easily. Classic green tea. Calming and soothing to the nose. Seriously, who doesn’t love the smell of green tea?
The mask is thin and the cut outs are just right for my eye area. I once again, ripped the sheet while positioning it, so I didn’t bother to position it perfectly. I might rip it more. I’m too strong for these delicate sheets, I guess. The mask is a bit big, so if you’ve got a smaller face, this might be a problem. It was alright for my big face though.
The sheet itself is drenched in essence, with the packet having more than enough. I like to use the remaining essence for my elbows and neck. Since the essence was hefty, it was dripping down my neck. You can clearly see this in the photo below.
This green tea mask from Nature Republic did not leave my face tacky after using it. It did, however, leave my face moisturized, which is its goal. The moisturization was better than the mask I previously reviewed. It also sort of helped in calming my skin down. Using this was very relaxing too, mainly because of the green tea smell.
I love the overall effect of this Nature Republic Real Nature Green Tea Mask Sheet. Nature Republic really did give green tea justice and they continue to prove why they’re a popular brand with their top of the line products.
There are also thing that I really really dislike about this mask. One is the fact that the mask essence is very drippy. I hate when the essence drips all the way to my neck because the feeling makes me uncomfortable. Two is that it contains alcohol. I am trying my best to only use products that do not contain alcohol. I hope Nature Republic could maybe reformulate this in the future.
I have not tried other green tea mask though, so I couldn’t compare it with those from different brands. I’ll try more green tea masks just because this worked out so well, preferably ones without alcohol content next time.
