Q&A WITH THE BRAND AMBASSADOR ‘’THE KIM BROS’’ FROM EXO
- What is your impression of the latest product and which product is the most favorite?
Suho: First of all, I want to congratulate Nature Republic for the launching of new product ‘Around the Nature’ series in Indonesia. I heard that Nature Republic team has prepared this product for about 2 years so it would be suitable for Indonesian’s skin type and local weather. 2 years is a long time. The point is I am very happy to be able to launch this latest product in Indonesia with all of you.
- This product is fairly new, has EXO ever used this product or not? If you have used, how do you respond to this product?
Chen: Before the launch of ‘Around The Nature’, I already used the product. So, I’ve used it first. After using, it immediately absorbs and didn’t feel sticky, I think this is perfect for Indonesian’s weather. Please try the product so you will be able to feel what I am saying.
Suho: This is a very good skin care product. I strongly recommend using the series to feel the benefits.
- In Nature Republic CF with EXO, they show products such as Aloe Shooting Gel, Ice Shooting Gel, and Aloe Fresh Powdery Sun Stick. Which of these products is your favorite and what is the reason?
Chen: Recently we have advertised Fresh Powdery Sun Sticks. It was really fun and exciting as there was a UV filter which allowed us to see parts of our body that has been protected by UV and has not. As we shot the CF in a pool, it also made us (EXO) felt like we were in summer holiday.
- As celebrities, you often dye your hair and it can be damaged. Can you share tips for hair care?
Kai: Because of my job, I often dye my hair. So of course the hair becomes easily damaged. Therefore, after shampoo I always use a hair mask. I always use Nature Republic products that contain Argan oil and it works well. Whenever you feel that your hair is dry because you dye your hair, you can use the product that I recommend.
