KORRES: New Yoghurt Face & Body Moisturizers

Inspired by the long-lived tradition of applying yoghurt to sunburned skin, comes KORRES Face & Body with Yoghurt.

Yoghurt is a natural source of lactose, proteins, minerals and vitamins and is known to instantly hydrate and relieve dry skin.

20130507-222007.jpgThe development of the KORRES Yoghurt line took over three years and this is the first time edible yoghurt was incorporated into their cosmetic formula.

For the KORRES Lab, developing a stable cosmetic formula that could preserve all the benefits of edible yoghurt, turned out to be a challenge. The R&D team had to work by ‘building’ the formula onto the yoghurt base, which is how the final product is impressively active without any conservation or stability issues, despite the fact that it contains such a sensitive raw material.

Consistent with KORRES other body butters, the Yoghurt Body Butter does not disappoint. I love the texture and fresh scent of the lotion. In addition to yoghurt, it also contains shea butter and sunflower, almond, and avocado oils. It is rich and the consistency is on the thick side but it is not greasy and it has a great after-smell. Reminds me of summer.

The KORRES Greek Yoghurt Moisturizing Face Cream (with real yoghurt is also non-greasy). Perfect for those long days spent outside enjoying the summer sun, this face cream contains wheat starch, natural vitamin E, olive oil concentrate, and macadamia nut oil in addition to the edible yoghurt.

Both of these items can now be found in Shoppers Drug Mart stores across the country and the face cream has a suggested retail price of $42.

If your mom enjoys outdoor activities in the summer, drop by and check these items out for Mother’s Day gift ideas. In the summer, during my downtime, we are rarely inside. I love to garden and this year we are working on our backyard so I know my skin will get neglected. This is going to be wonderful to put on at the end of my day to say ‘sorry’ to my skin for everything I put it through.

Disclosure: I received these items for free to facilitate my feature. The personal opinions expressed in this post are my own.
