Review: Naruko Raw Job's Tears Skincare Line

A few months ago I received a massive package from Taiwanese brand, Naruko to try out their Raw Job's Tears skincare line. I have used a few of their night jelly's before and loved it but it was my first time trying out this line. I heard a lot of great things about the Raw Job's Tears line and I couldn't wait to try it. I have been using this line for 3 months now. In today's blogpost I am going to review a few products of the Raw Job's Tears line. This is going to be a long review, so grab some popcorn and sit back.

.
NARUKO RAW JOB'S TEARS SKINCARE LINE
Naruko has different skincare lines for different needs and Raw Job's Tears line is focusing on minimizing the pores and brightening the skin tone, and that's exactly what my skin needs! This line is all about Job's Tears that are included which is a superfood - it's a cereal grain. The skincare line is free of parabens, mineral oil, artificial preservatives, artificial coloring or pigments, fragrance, silicone and talc. It's cruelty free so not tested on animals. They have many natural ingredients so it is best to use it every day for maximum results and use them all within 6 months, but the actual expiration date for these products are in 2018, they were all manufactured in 2015.

I received the essence, lotion, moisturizer, eye gelly and night gelly for try out. All products contain a high percentage of Job's Tears and can also be seen at the top of the ingredient lists of the products. I love how luxurious it looks as well with the red sturdy packaging! It's especially recommended to the oily skin with uneven complexion, who wants to defeat dullness, large pores and want to create a softer skin. The products of this line smells like grains as well, very light, not overwhelming at all and I love it. First I am going to explain what every product does and I will share my favourites & final thoughts at the end of this blogpost.

RAW JOB'S TEARS SUPERCRITICAL CO2 PORE MINIMIZING & BRIGHTENING ESSENCE
The product names of their products are extremely long, but this is the essence of this skincare line. It's seriously one of my favourite products out of this line. This essence follows the formula of high concentration and high activity. It contains 30ml of product. What does it contain and do :

• Pore tightening: It has 5% glyconolactone which removes the redundant oil on the skin and tightens the pores to create a soft skin.

• Brightening effect: It contains 5% job's tears, 3% vitamin B3, tranexamic acid, sodium ascorbyl phosphate and grape leaf extract; all re-activates the whiteness from the skin base and brightens the complexion evenly. It definitely made my skin less dull and gave my skin a naturel glow after application. Hello brightening!

• Moisturizing: It also contains 10% tremella extract, hyaluronic acid, raw job's tears oil, composite natural plant oil; and these ingredients moisturizes the skin and makes your pores tighter.

It's a translucent essence. The texture makes me think of the Hada Labo Hyaluronic Acid Lotion. The essence is very lightweight, soaks into the skin within seconds. Just one pump is needed for the entire face. The essence is more concentrated than the lotion which is why I like it. No sticky feeling at all, removes my sebum after application, making my skin semi-matte with a healthy glow. It gives my skin a moist boost which is why I love it so much.

Pour a small amount onto a cotton pad and apply it to the face after cleansing every morning and night. The eye area should be avoided.

The texture is liquid-y, translucent, very lightweight and absorbs fast. It might feel a tiny bit sticky for the first 2 seconds, but it soaks into the skin straight away and the stickiness changes into a soft skin.

RAW JOB'S TEARS SUPERCRITICAL CO2 MINIMIZING & BRIGHTENING MOISTURIZER
The name says it all already, it minimizes the pores, brightens and moisturizes the skin. After application, it gives me a semi-matte finish with a healthy glow. It didn't do much with my pores though, although it might be visible after longer usage.

.
HOW TO USE
In the description it says to apply this on a cotton pad, but I prefer to just pour a bit of product onto my hand and apply it onto my skin. Don't want to waste it and let my cotton pad soak it all in haha.

TEXTURE
The moisturizer is a white cream, very lightweight and only a little is needed for the entire face. It soaks up quickly, it's sticky after application, but after a few seconds (when it has been absorbed), it will change into a soft and moist skin.

.
RAW JOB'S TEARS SUPERCRITICAL CO2 BRIGHTENING NIGHT EYE GELLY
This is the eye gelly of this line, you should only use this at night, because the texture is a gelly, like a sleeping mask for the eyes! It claims to soothe fine lines at the eye corners, brightens the eyes, it includes whitening ingredients as well.

• Moisturizing and Elasticity: snow fungus extract, hyaluronic acid and compound plant oil microcapsules; excellent highly moisturizing and water-locking ingredients are added to relieve the skin of dryness around the eyes. These 3 ingredients functions as water replenishers, repairs fine lines and wrinkles, keeping skin smooth and elastic.

• Brightening & Whitening: sodium hyaluronate reduces wrinkles on the face, ethyl ascorbic acid, grape leaf extract, arbutin whitens & brightens the skin.

It comes in a very small spatula which makes it hygienic when you get the product out. Eventhough it's small, sometimes I still have a hard time to take the right amount out. I always use too much while you only need a tiny bit. I wish they had a squeeze tube version of this, which would be better. There is a lot of product in that jar (30g), I am wondering if I can ever finish this.


.
HOW TO USE 
Get a tiny amount out with the spatula and apply it on the eye area.

TEXTURE 
It is white and has a gel texture. It has a cooling effect that I love, it doesn't have a scent as well. It leaves a sticky feeling at first, but that goes away after 5-10 minutes or so. I do have the feeling that the eye gelly sits on top of my eyes instead of really absorbing it at night. Absorption takes a long time for this product, it probably absorbs during my sleep. In the morning it feels soft and moist!

RAW JOB'S TEARS SUPERCRITICAL CO2 PORE MINIMIZING & BRIGHTENING NIGHT GELLY
Naruko is famous because of their night gelly's, which is also why I wanted to try the gelly from their Raw Job's Tears line. It doesn't disappoint at all! It is a sleeping beauty gelly (sleeping pack), say goodbye to dull complexion at night and say hello to moist and less oily skin in the daytime. The main formulas are pore white, pearl white and are included in the product. It also soothes and brightens the skin after sun exposore as well as repairs the sunburn during daytime. It definitely creates a cooling effect when you apply it, you can put it in the fridge for extra cooling effect.

• Pore care: it has yeast complex B oil control factor, evermat pore tightening factor and gluconolactone; it polishes the skin, create tight pores, smoothens the skin and creates a brightening effect.

• Brightening and Whitening: it contains raw job's tears and polished job's tears, tranexamic acid, arbutin and vitamin B3; it wipes dull complexion out and makes your skin bright and reduces sunburn.

• Soothing and Repairing: it contains phytoferulin, hyaluronic acid, tremella extract and sarcosine. It focuses on the weak and irritated skin after a sunburn, it relieves discomfort. It has moisturizing ingredients and creates a softer skin.



.
HOW TO USE 
The night gelly doesn't come with a spatula, so make sure to use clean hands, before you grab product out of it. A little goes a long way, grab a little bit of gelly and apply evenly all over your face, avoid the eye area. Rinse in the morning with lukewarm water.

TEXTURE 
It has a gelly texture and is translucent. It is slightly sticky when you apply it, but once it's soaked into the skin (within a few seconds), it will feel moist and balanced afterwards. It also seems to control my oil really well, leaving my skin semi-matte with a natural glow. In the morning my skin is moist and less oily!

WHERE TO BUY?
The whole Naruko Raw Job's Tears collection can be purchased at narukoboutique.com and obviously you can find Naruko products in Taiwan easily. The prices varies per product and are definitely affordable. The night gelly is for example sold for USD$14.99 there.

FINAL THOUGHTS 
I love this skincare line and I can see why Naruko is one of the popular brands in Taiwan. It's great to see that the skincare line is free of parabens, mineral oil, artificial preservatives, artificial coloring or pigments, fragrance, silicone and talc. It's cruelty free so not tested on animals (very important)! They have many natural ingredients so it's best to use it every day for maximum results and use them all within 6 months. And that's the tricky one for me. I have used it for 3 months and the amount of product is still a lot, except for the essence where I used half already. I will keep using it until I have finished it all though.

My favourite products of this line got to be the essence and night gelly! I can say bye bye to my dull skin and hello to moist and less oily skin in the morning. I have been using this line for 3 months now and I love how it feels on the skin. Since this skincare line is actually more targeted to oily skintypes and I have a combination dry skintype, I added an ampoule (Missha Time Revolution Ampoule) into my routine to add more moisture into my dry areas. The combination works well on my skin.

Does it do what it claims? I didn't see any results regards the pore tightening effect, but I do see the brightening effect. With some products I see that it gives me a healthy glow instantly. My skin feels balanced, calms it instantly, feels moist and also what I love about it is - and that's definitely thanks to the night gelly - it's making me a lot less greasy/oily when I wake up in the morning. This is actually the first product that does that and I have been searching for a product with that effect for ages! It's moisturizing enough to balance my skin well and I am amazed by that.

Thank you so much for this extremely lengthy blogpost, with a bunch of terms of ingredients and information about this skincare line.

WOULD YOU GIVE THIS SKINCARE LINE A TRY? 

note: these product were sent to me for review purposes, this didn't affect my opinion about the product. I didn't receive money to write about it, some product descriptions are from the naruko official website, see disclaimer.
