HOW TO APPLY

In the morning, apply to the face and neck as the final step in your skin care routine before makeup. At night, apply under any sleeping treatment as a hydration booster. Avoid the eye area.

My Thoughts

First of all I love the pump- this makes for easy application.  Smells completely natural – nothing overwhelming. I tried it a few different ways as I don’t wear makeup every day. I used it after my serum in the morning and it nourished my skin.  I like that it it has priming properties but no crazy silicones.  Did I notice a change in pore size or diminished lines. Yes! I think that what really does it for my skin is the hyaluronic acids.  Immediate results and nourished skin. Great combo. I have sensitive skin and this is gentle.  I also use it before sleep under different sleeping masks.  It’s definitely something I am going to keep using. Gentle yet very effective.

Greek Yoghurt Cleansing Wipes

About This Product

Pre-moistened facial cleansing wipes formulated with nourishing Greek Yoghurt to soften skin. These make-up removing wipes remove stubborn face and eye makeup and are great for travel. The original Milk Proteins Wipes you love have been upgraded with Greek Yoghurt for 2.5 times more skin-nourishing proteins, vitamins, and minerals. Each pre-moistened, textured, and non-irritating cloth effectively removes stubborn face and eye makeup, leaving skin refreshed and deeply nourished. Perfectly packaged for on-the-go cleansing, skin is left revitalized, smooth, and hydrated.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

1. No Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, Silicones, Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Ethanolamines, Animal Testing 2. Greek Yoghurt Concentrate: Contains two and a half times the protein content of regular yogurt for advanced nourishment. 3. Chamomile and Calendula Oils: Calm stressed or sensitive skin. 4. Macadamia and Jojoba Oils: Deeply moisturize and help skin retain moisture.

My Thoughts

Amazing! They smell exactly like the priming moisturizer.  They remove pretty much everything.  I wear waterproof mascara in the summer and I usually use micellar water for that area. Very cooling & soothing and I think that’s the chamomile as my skin responds so well to it.

My Thoughts

I love the pump again – that’s super important to me in the skincare world.  It smells fresh and totally natural . It feels totally lightweight on the skin and I really like the its oceanic properties alongside the vitamin C.  My skin has a bit of pigmentation as I am so fair skinned. I am using it all over – even the ears as I wear my hair up quite a bit. This is not an “instant” solution to brightening the skin but I do think the ingredients make it a winner. I would definitely purchase this.

Last but definitely not least …

Jasmine Body Butter

About This Product

These beautifully scented, creamy body butters are enriched with shea butter and quince extract to soften, moisturize, and rejuvenate the skin. Sunflower, almond, and avocado oils nourish, thus helping to improve elasticity and smoothness.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

1. No Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, Silicones, Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Ethanolamines, Animal Testing 2. Recent findings claim that Shea butter protects the skin against climate and UV aggression; helps preventing wrinkle formation; soothes irritated and chapped skin and moisturises the epidermis.

My Thoughts

This is definitely a luxury body butter.  If You love jasmine the way I do … A LOT! You would love this. I am into rich creams as my body loves the moisture.  The packaging is beautiful and so artistic.  When a product is beautifully packaged I seem to want to use it more. Strange? I don’t know. It’s so Pretty! And smells equally as pretty.  I love it for the driest spots on my body. Elbows, Heels and knees.  It’s also great right out of the shower or bath and right before bed.

As this was my first time using anything Korres I am really impressed and this little taste makes me want more. The ingredients are beautiful and nourishing and they have a luxurious feel which I love!

Very, Very pleased with these and the brand as a whole.

Korres is available at Beauty Boutique by Shopper’s Drug Mart in Canada

All love

    I bought a bunch of Korres items when I was in Greece! They’s sooooo much cheaper there of course. Plus, they have the Korres makeup too! I really like the brand’s philosophy.
    I’m curious about that Wild Rose Brightening Targeted Tone Corrector. I bought the Wild Rose face oil (which contains REAL rose petals inside) but have yet to use it. Planning on using it once the weather cools down.
    Great overview!
