KORRES Skincare Does Your Body Good. Naturally.6:00 am
KORRES is one of those companies that once you try their products, they become lifelong necessities. They're just that good, that addictive and that nourishing that you'll leave your current products behind without a second thought or even a glance back.
This Greek company uses Greece's native flora, with their medicinal value and natural healing remedies, and combined that with natural homeopathic remedies to create natural and certified organic products that you'll fall for right from the first time you try them.
Body Butters can sometimes be too thick/greasy/sweet-smelling for me, but Korres Jasmine Body Butter is so delicately-scented that you simply feel like you've got a little spring bouquet tucked into your bag wherever you go. And the feeling? Instantly nourishing without a stitch of greasiness, so whether you're heading to the beach or the office, your skin will be moisturized all day long and smelling oh-so-pretty. All this is achieved using only natural ingredients such as shea butter, avocado, almond and sunflower oils, quince and jasmines extracts, and red grape polyphenols. So bypass those gross chemical-laced lotions at the drugstore and saturate your skin in complete and utter wonderfulness.
I prefer to use Showergels to soap (so luxurious, no?) so I jumped with joy (truly) to discover their Guava Showergel. It is like the beach in a bottle. Like sun-drenched, coconut-oiled bodies, it's-too-hot-to-stay-out-of-the-pool freshness. I've always wanted the beach feeling at home and now thanks to Korres, I've got it. The thick gel creates a lovely, creamy foam that leaves your skin soft and smooth and incredibly clean. Enriched with active aloe (with helps to reduce the signs of aging), vitamins C & E and zinc, you'll feel like instead of stepping into the shower every morning, you're wading in the ocean and luxuriating on a beach on vacation. Isn't that exactly how you want to begin the day?
And because our lives are jam-packed right up until we fall into bed every night, make taking off your makeup a breeze with Korres Pomegranate Cleansing & Make Up Removing Wipes. See, I know you know that you should take off your makeup before you go to bed, but you're so exhausted from work and home and life and laundry that sometimes you just have to forgo it. These l'il beauties (25 per box - or almost a month's worth of nightly cleansing) are the perfect solution - not only does it remove the daily grime, it goes to work on your makeup, even heavy-duty stuff like waterproof mascara. And while it rids you of all that you want, these soft cloths moisturizes your skin (thank you vitamin E), reduces your pores and gives you a more youthful appearance (the wonderful pomegranate extract is responsible). So go ahead and stay up to watch that extra 1/2 hour of television or read another 20 pages before turning in for the night. You've got Korres at your side now.
And because I never go a day without applying moisturizer, I was excited for the opportunity to try products from Korres Skincare line:
- Wild Rose 24-hour Moisturising & Brightening Cream is a wonderful remedy to all the damage your skin's exprienced over the summer - fine lines, sun spots, buh-bye. Wild rose oil - a natural source of vitamin C - immediately brightens and tightens your skin while the extract of the desert plant Imperata-clyndrica keeps your skin moisturized all day. Amazing ingredients such as grape seed and honeysuckle flower extracts and olive oil make your skin feel like it's truly being taken care of - inside and out.
- I'm completely addicted to Korres Quercetin & Oak Antiaging & Antiwrinkle Night Cream. This rich, thick cream that isn't oily in the least, absorbs upon application, but you'll find your skin feeling refreshed, nourished, renewed and hydrated long after you put it on. Go ahead and get under the sheets with your wrinkles and saggy skin, because you're going to wake up to supple and youthful skin. Lightly-scented bliss and time machine results is all yours, thanks to beeswax, jojoba seed oil, grape seed, rosemary leaf and quercus robur bark extracts. And all you have to do is apply it before bed. That's easy enough.
I love that with KORRES you get beautifully-scented products that work, all without harmful ingredients. And if I look more well-rested, a little more youthful and I smell amazing, you know why.
