KORRES Products!

KORRES products has always been a favourite of mines. I'm a big fan of their body butter lotions the most. I recently finished the body butter lotion that smelled very exotic like yummy guavas.  The smell and feel is just heavenly. I've always purchased them at Sephora  but now they are sold at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada as well. Awesome!!!

I was recently sent some products to test out.  I also gave my mom these products to try out.


KORRES Basil Lemon Body Butter  
7.95oz/ 235ml

I have had body butters before that seemed very greasy, over-powering scent and took very long to settle into my skin. This one did neither. In fact, it was not greasy at all! It soaked into my skin very well as it was very moisturizing. I love how it has the exotic scent of Basil Zesty Lemon that stayed on for a long time. It is enriched with shea butter which makes it super hydrating. It also contains natural ingredients like sunflower, almond and avocado oils that help nourish and improve the smoothness of the skin especially for parts like the elbows, knees and heels.

So this would be perfect for the dry winter season that we are having in Toronto right now.

 Quercetin & Oak Antiageing & Antiwrinkle Night Cream
 1.35oz/ 40ml
As I am 24 years old right now, I don't see why it might be too early to start using Anti-Wrinkle / Anti-Aging products. I mean I should try to use products which "try" to prevent them right? Yes, it's all about the PREVENTION! We always are fighting for more youthful skin!

This is a night cream that is meant for all skin types. As it's so moisturizing, a little can go a long way.  Normally, I have combination skin but this nasty winter has made it quite dry. The texture is very cream like and quite moisturizing that is perfect to be worn at  nights so it can stay strong for the cold season the next day. It creates a good canvas for my make-up/foundation to apply on.

As for the natural ingredients, it contains quercetin and oak  which is clinically proven to be the alternative to retinol. As people have sensitive skin, they do not want to put on chemicals like retinol at all and therefore, seek for natural ingredients. KORRES gives the solution with their natural ingredients. This product also improves the elasticity and firmness of the skin that results in a radiant glow.
  Quercetin & Oak Antiageing & Antiwrinkle Eye Cream
 0.51oz/ 15ml
Many eye creams that I've purchased in the past as resulted in burning sensations around the eye. I find this eye cream to be quite soothing. This eye cream contains the natural ingredients Quercetin and oak that plays the alternative to Retinol. It prevents signs of aging lines, dark circles and puffiness around the eye area. The formula is very light and not thick at all and perfect for sensitive areas like the eye areas. I really like the pump system but you just need a very tiny amount as a little can go a long way. As for my under eye circles, I do not think this cream can do anything as it's more genetics. Instead, it makes my eyes look more hydrated and well rested the next day.

Wild Rose Face and Eye Serum  

1.01 oz/ 30ml

 
I love serums especially when wearing under make-up. It can be used as a primer for our make-up applications. Yes! A great canvas to paint on!

This product brightens up the face while smoothing out lines and evening out the skintone. The natural ingredients here contain wild rose which is a natural source of Vitamin C that helps boosts the radiance of our skin and make it bright and fresh looking.  The rose scent of this is not over powering at all. It's quite light. I have also applied it right before my moisturizer in the morning. It is very hydrating and really brightens up my dull skin at times.

Well...that's all for now! Hope everyone is well! :)

I have been wanting to try Korres products for awhile. I think I need to try the Basil Lemon Body Butter. It sounds very nice. I need a lotion that is more moisturizing.

I've tried the wild rose serum and I do like it though it didn't make a huge difference in lightening my ance scars my skin did look a lot more "brighter". I love korres products but I am thinking of looking more into the line. Do you find the body butter a little greasy?

I've always been a fan of their body butters. I don't find them greasy at all. It helps during the winter. :)
