I have a guilty pleasure I haven’t shared here yet. I love makeup and beauty products and I can spend hours in stores like Sephora just looking around and checking out all of the various products. The art of taking care of my skin through pampering, then showing it off with makeup gives me a little escape that I don’t often find while running after our two daughters.
When I do get some time to step in to a beauty supply store, I immediately look for the KORRES line of natural hair/skin care and makeup.
I am a long time user of KORRES products. Over the past couple of years, I’ve used their eye cream, day cream, and liquid/powder foundations. When I recently had an offer to try out a few items I hadn’t before, I couldn’t wait for the package to arrive. Like a kid on Christmas morning, I tore open the package and immediately declared everything in it as ‘mine’ just in case my daughter thought otherwise.
Originating in Athens, Greece, KORRES makes everything from hair/skin/sun care to makeup products and to date, I haven’t met a product of theirs I haven’t loved. So I was really excited to try out some others that I haven’t had the chance to yet.
I ended up trying their ShowerGel, Yoghurt After-sun Cooling Gel, Jasmine Body Butter and Pomegranate Cleansing and Make Up Removing Wipes.
Their scents are subtle and delicious and my husband, who is ‘scent-sitive’ said he really liked the Jasmine Body Butter. The jasmine scent is more fruity than flowery. It has a hint of a grape scent and goes on so soft. The day I received the KORRES products to try out, my daughter asked me why I kept putting their Jasmine Body Butter on my skin. I was that obvious. I couldn’t stop putting it on and smelling my hands.
Their shower gel is wonderful. The scent of the gel isn’t overpowering which is great because it doesn’t conflict with any scents that are added after you get out of the shower. It contains Aloe, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc and antioxidant enzymes and it is really moisturizing.
My new favorite must-have make up item is their Pomegranate Cleansing and Make Up Removing Wipes. They are easy to use and smell heavenly. They remove make up easily, and moisturize at the same time. I have somewhat sensitive skin and these don’t bother me one bit.
Hopefully sooner rather than later we’ll be able to enjoy some of our beautiful Canadian summers, and when you are out in the sun, it can wreak havoc on your skin. Even for a short period of time, and even when you use sun screen, the sun can dry out your skin, leaving it feeling tight. Their Yoghurt After-sun Cooling Gel works to relieve the dryness left by sun exposure and moisturizes your skin with a wonderful scent.
Make sure you check out and like KORRES on Facebook to keep up to date with company information and new products. You can also take a look at Sephora online to get a good idea of all of the different they have available to Canada and you can purchase KORRES items both online or by visiting a store location. KORRES is also available in select Shoppers Drug Mart locations across Canada.
Are you a fan of KORRES? Is there an item I missed here that you can’t live without?
