Korres Review!!




Check out my other Korres reviews HERE!!




Wild Rose
24-Hour Moisturizer Normal to Dry Skin SPF 6
$32.50
Wild Rose 24-hour moisturizer that quickly and effectively heals and lightens hyper- pigmentation • Wild Rose oil, a potent, natural source of vitamin C, significantly diminishes fine lines, hyper- pigmentation and resurfaces skin, revealing a soft and radiant complexion • Imperata cylindrica a desert plant extract, ensures 24-hour long-lasting hydration by continually regulating the cellular water equilibrium • Pure vitamin C inhibits free radical damage and brightens the skin • Phytic Acid, a natural skin lightener, helps illuminating sun damage and acne scarring -Grape seed extract, rich in Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, helps promote a healthy and youthful complexion -Olive oil, almost identical in chemical structure to our skin lipids, provides ideal hydration, while allowing the skin to breathe





I have heard raves and raves about this cream, so you can imagine my disappointment when I realized I didn't care for it much.
The only reason was because my skin felt suffocated.
It's not that it was too thick, it just didn't let my skin breathe underneath- so it felt "too much."



Thyme Honey
24-Hour Moisturizing Cream
$32.50
Thyme Honey Ultra-Rich and luxurious yet weightless cream that provides intense nourishment and enhanced elasticity to the driest and most sensitive skin concerns • Vegetable oils and antioxidants regenerate and replenish skin, reversing the signs of aging • Thyme Honey, rich in vitamins, amino acids and flavonoids, provides antioxidant protection, while polysaccharides attract and absorb water, acting as a hydro-regulating agent ensuring ideal skin hydration • Thyme’s antioxidant action offers protection from free radical damage and speeds up skin cell regeneration Imperata cylindrica, a desert plant extract, ensures 24-hour long-lasting hydration by continually regulating the cellular water equilibrium • Grape seed extract, rich in Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, helps promote healthy and youthful skin • Squalene, an olive oil derivative increases skin elasticity and hydration • Olive oil, almost identical in chemical structure to our skin lipids, provides perfect hydration • Macadamia nut oil rebalances dryness without clogging the pores





This is a wonderful cream for maturing skin- my Nana is using this and loves it.
The only thing that I didn't like was the scent- it didn't smell as nice as the Wild Rose moisturizer (which smells lovely).



Wild Rose
Brightening and Long-Lasting Foundation SPF 20
$28
Oil-free, fluid foundation easily glides on skin giving a luminous natural finish with buildable long-lasting coverage and sun protection, Available in 6 shades: wrf1, wrf2, wrf3, wrf4, wrf5, wrf6. • Advanced anti-aging formula, it feels weightless on the skin but acts as a treatment, clinically proven to diminish hyper pigmentation and wrinkles while improving skin’s hydration • Wild Rose oil, a potent natural source of vitamin C, significantly diminishes fine lines, hyperpigmentation and resurfaces skin, revealing a soft and radiant complexion • Natural Micro-patch technology utilizes plant-derived polymers to seal in hydration, giving the foundation clinically proven long-lasting, all-day wear





Unfortunately WRF4 is WAY too yellow and WAY too dark for me- so I need to get WRF2 (most likely)...



Ginger and Vitamins
Lightweight, Water-Based Foundation SPF 10
$28

Lightweight, water-based tinted moisturizer leaves skin perfectly hydrated while minimizing imperfections, boosting antioxidant protection and leaving skin with a healthy glow. • Formulated for all skin types, Ginger and vitamins formula gives sheer to medium buildable coverage with a creamy finish and built-in sun protection • Ginger extract improves skin tone and clarity while calming and soothing redness and irritation • Vitamin C significantly diminishes fine lines, hyperpigmentation and resurfaces skin, revealing a soft and radiant complexion • Vitamin E, a potent anti-oxidant, defends skin against free radical damaging while also providing moisture



I absolutely LOVE this foundation.
What do you get when you cross a tinted moisturizer and a foundation?
This, Ginger and Vitamins!!
It's nice for the dry/cold/winter months.
It's about a medium coverage and you can put a powder on top for added coverage.



Wild Rose
High Coverage Creamy Concealer
$20
High coverage creamy concealer increases skin radiance and moisture while diminishing fine lines, wrinkles and hyper pigmentation. • Formulated with ultra-fine pigments that disperse light in multiple directions for a illuminating effect • Wild Rose oil, a potent, natural source of vitamin C, significantly diminishes fine lines, hyperpigmentation and resurfaces skin, revealing a soft and radiant complexion • Laninaria Digitata Extract helps to regulate oil secretion on the eyelids, working as a great eye shadow base without creasing and providing lids with treatment benefits • Vitamin C significantly diminishes fine lines, hyperpigmentation and resurfaces skin, revealing a soft and radiant complexion • Vitamin E, a potent anti-oxidant, defends skin against free radical damaging while also providing moisture







These aren't as creamy as I'd hope they'd be.
However, they do dry down to a matte-finish to keep from creasing under the eyes (which is really nice)!

Thanks for always being honest with your reviews! And for all the hard work doing the swatches! :)

I love KORRES for their bath & body lines.. Don't think I'll stray to their makeup side!

I like that you're honest in your reviews, I hate creams that make your skin feel like it can't "breathe" cuz usually after a few nights of wearing it I break out! I will stick to their bath stuff!

Id love to try out the foundation!!! I love the idea that it has the goodness of a tinted moisturizer with the coverage opf a foundation!! Does it give a matte MATTE finish? Or is it more dewy? x

Great reviews! I don't think the creams would work for me but I love the sound of that ginger foundation! And Korres makeup is amazing...at least the things I have are absolutely worth getting!

Oh no! You didn't like the Wild Rose Cream? Its my HG along with NUXE Creme Fraiche de Surractive. Its really been helping since the Canadian winter is rolling around. They also have a yogurt cream which is very light (too light for me) which you may want to try :)
I had been eyeing the foundation for a while everytime i'm in sephora. But I've got so many, not to mention my new BB Cream.... I guess it'll have to wait.

I need me a ginger and vitamins! :) It's pretty affordable for the amount and size you get? :D And how is the coverage on the other one that's too dark for you?
