BLOG KORRES.jpg

 

The Amazing Blog is always on the hunt for great-smelling body products that encourage healthy skin. One of our favourite brands is Korres, and as regular readers will know, we have covered many of their products over the years, the most recent being their Yogurt Range. As a natural Greek skincare brand, they have their roots set firmly in Athens; in fact, they started as one of the first ever homoeopathic pharmacy in GreeceKorres’ goal is to mix both nature and science, taking advantage of their extensive scientific resources, for the advancement of clinically safe and effective products.

The latest products from the Korres range that we tried are their Bergamot & Jasmine Body Milk and Shower Gel. The exotic Bergamot & Jasmine are a scent combination to fall in love with! This fragrance isn’t overpowering, in fact, it has a delicate balance of spicy citrus from the bergamot oiland calming floral bouquet from the Jasmine. Thus making these two products extremely mood enhancing and uplifting to use.

The Body Milk, made from 92% of natural content, is enriched with shea butter, almond oil, active aloe, and pro-vitamin B5, ideal for improving the suppleness of the skin. We mustn't forget to mention that almond oil is a fantastic anti-inflammatory and that aloe vera stimulates cell rejuvenation. The foaming Shower Gel is made from 87% of natural content and is enhanced with moisturising wheat proteins and althea extract, to help maintain natural moisture levels. It also contains active aloe to help reduce signs of ageing. What’s not to love?

Korres Yoghurt Range – Shower Gel, Hand Cream, Body Milk, Body Butter

Korres is one of our favourite brands. For those of you who don't know, it's a Greek company, so it seems to make sense that they have now incorporated nutritious Greek yoghurt into their new range of bodycare products. All these Korres Yoghurt bodycare, have a gorgeous fresh and clean scent in a rich and creamy formula that pampers and hydrates the skin. If you are a regular reader, you'll know that we at The Amazing Blog love natural beauty products, and this range has suitably impressed us. Korres bodycare is firmly rooted in natural ingredients, and they even quotes the exact rations of what is natural i.e:  The Body Butter which is 94.4%, the Body Milk  92.6%, the Showergel 86.4% and the Hand Cream with 88.9%. All products are suitable for vegetarians and dermatologically tested too.

The Body Butter is rich in shea butter and avocado, almond and sunflower oils. It also contains guava, an excellent source of vitamin C for collagen synthesis, and quince extract which is good for softening and restructuring. The Body Milk, while thinner in consistency, is still deeply moisturising. It is enriched with almond oil, active aloe, shea butter and provitamin B5 all to nourish the skin. Almond oil is hailed for its anti-inflammatory and soothing effects, while aloe vera is well-known for its medicinal healing and cell regeneration properties. Shea butter, one of our favourite ingredients, is also renowned for its hydrating and softening effects.

The Hand Cream boasts similar ingredients, with the addition of calendula for repairing cracked skin. It feels luxuriously thick and creamy, but absorbs quickly which we love. The Showergel is creamy and foamy with wheat proteins and althea extract to help maintain skin’s natural moisture levels. The additions of vitamins C and E, zinc and antioxidant enzymes are great to boost the skin’s immune system. We think this range is perfect for protecting your skin in these cold winter months. Purchase the Korres Yoghurt range online at Feel Unique here, or in-store and online at Debenhams, Marks & Spencer and  Liberty London. These products range in price from £8 - £12.50.

Korres- Anti-Wrinkle and Firming Day/Night Cream

NEW blog Korres.jpg

The Amazing Blog is a big fan of the brand Korres, and we have reviewed them multiple times in the past. We love them for two reasons; firstly they are inspired by homeopathy and its “mild yet effective approach to skin needs.” Secondly, we are big supporters of the brand because of their ability to produce high-quality products time and time again. Today we are writing about two of our new favourites from the brand, their Anti-Wrinkle and Firming Day Cream and their Anti-Wrinkle and Firming Night Cream. 

Both the day and night creams are advanced, non-greasy formulas that help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. They restore skin to a more youthful state by helping it become firmer and regain its elasticity. Both products are driven by the revolutionary molecule Active HALupeol and Castanea Arcadia (Arcadian Chestnut tree.) These ingredients work to protect the skin’s essential structural elements such as collagen and glycoproteins. Overall, the creams give weaker and older skin suppleness and youthfulness. Our skin was left positively glowing and wonderfully smooth to the touch. 

Not only are the products amazingly effective on skin, but they contain over 90% natural ingredients, making them the perfect products for eco-conscious people trying to avoid nasty parabens. The Day Cream is 93.3% natural and the Night Cream is 96.1% natural. They could not be easier to use, simply massage into skin once in the morning and once in the evening and watch as the effects quickly begin to take effect. 

You can purchase the Day Cream here for around £39.40 and the Night Cream here for roughly £39.40. Although prices are listed in Euros PayPal is available which will allow you to pay in Pounds. 

Wild Rose Advanced Brightening & Nourishing Face Oil – Korres

At The Amazing Blog, we often find ourselves swooning over products that satisfy our love of all things pretty, sweet smelling and effective, as was the case when a lovely package from Korres arrived.

Coming in a divine glass bottle filled with dried rose petals and luxuriously scented oil, the Korres Advanced Brightening & Nourishing Face Oil in Wild Rose is a feast for the senses. The oil is fast to absorb into the skin and is rich in Vitamin C to deliver a complexion that is brighter, with a more youthful appearance. While antioxidants and essential fatty acids help to smooth lines and reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone.  After applying the oil to a clean face and neck, massage into the skin. Your face will be left feeling moisturised and with the elegant scent of Wild Rose lingering on your skin.

Nourish your skin with the Korres Wild Rose Face Oil, available online from Marks & Spencer for £30.

We know that at the beginning of summer all anyone can think about is getting that perfect tan but your skin has yet to see the sun. For that reason, we were really excited to discover Marc Ibane’s travel set, which includes a luxury hand-made clutch, a natural tanning spray of 50ml, and a kabuki brush. The brush is included to make the application process of the spray tan easier, especially when applying it to the contours of your face.

For your convenience, the tanning spray is fast-drying and leaves no marks or streaks. It is also safe to use frequently so that you can maintain your golden skin for however long you please. Another great trait is that it is enriched with nourishing vegetable-based ingredients, such as, Aloë Vera and Ginkgo. However, the highlight of this travel set is the astounding brush, designed by a team of leading professional make-up artists, that everyone passionate about beauty needs to own. It is suitable for all skin types, does not loose it's bristles, and is multifunctional i.e. you can apply foundation with it too.

Look bikini ready before you’ve even been in one with this tanning travel set for £32.50 here.

Who wants to pay for overweight-luggage? No one! Take some weight off your luggage by travelling with the Holiday in Greece’ travel set from Korres, which is suitable for cabin luggage too. The set includes two unique shower gels, one with a Basil Lemon scent, and the other Guava Guayaba. These gels have a long-lasting moisturising affect, as they contain wheat proteins that create a defensive film on the skin. 

There is also two moisturising body milks with the same scents that are enriched with vitamins and skin energy boosting agents. Finally, to top it all off there is one gentle, Aloë and Ditanny, shampoo for normal hair that is suitable for everyday use.
