Originating in Greece, Korres was born out of the first homeopathic pharmacy. The brand is rooted in natural ingredients, herbal infusions and plant extracts, resulting in products that smell as good as they are.

Over a period of two weeks, we’ve put Korres to the test. Our verdict: If you’re looking for a natural skincare brand that delivers real results, put Korres at the top of your wishlist. Here’s why…

Brightening serum

Wild Rose Brightening & Line Smoothing Serum
What is it?
An ultra concentrated serum enriched with Baobab-tree polysaccharides that provides an instant firming and line-smoothing effect.

What does it do?
Wild Rose oil is a natural source of vitamin C, which demonstrates significant repairing activity to skin colour disorders, adding brightness and radiance to the skin.

My review…
A serum has become an essential part of my skincare regime and this one in particular gets a big thumbs up from me. Firstly, it’s packed full of skin loving ingredients so you know that you’re feeding your skin with goodness. The texture itself is incredibly lightweight with no stickiness, it simply absorbs into the skin. After 2 weeks, I noticed that my skin looks brighter and smoother.

Antiwrinkle eye cream

Black Pine Antiwrinkle Firming & Lifting Eye Cream
What is it?

An intensive eye cream that targets dark circles, reduces puffiness and lifts the eye area for a more youthful look.

What does it do?
The BLACK PINE formula features, among other natural actives, five patented-for- their-action ingredients, one of which is the first natural peptide with exceptional firming properties, Hexapeptide 11.

My review…
The eye area is one of my biggest problem areas. Late nights and lack of sleep really shows around these parts, so for me a powerful eye cream is a must. But, don’t underestimate the power of nature, these natural active ingredients are extremely hard working. I love the silky, velvety texture and it keeps eyes looking fresher and brighter all day long.

Firming and lifting day cream

Black Pine Antiwrinkle Firming & Lifting Day Cream
What is it?

A day cream that helps to maintain facial contour while protecting against wrinkles and sagging.

What does it do?
The BLACK PINE formula features, among other natural actives, five patented-for- their-action ingredients, one of which is the first natural peptide with exceptional firming properties, Hexapeptide 11.

My review…
You know when you wonder if a skincare product is actually working throughout the day? Well, this one really does. The texture feels lightweight on the skin but the formula is really rich. Fast absorbent but rich and a little goes a long way, although I like to use a generous amount. This cream feels like it’s penetrating under the skin’s surface.

Firming and lifting night cream

Black Pine Antiwrinkle, Firming & Lifting Night Cream
What is it?
Contains every single ingredient as the day cream with the additional intensive properties of a night time treatment.

What does it do?
The BLACK PINE formula features, among other natural actives, five patented-for- their-action ingredients, one of which is the first natural peptide with exceptional firming properties, Hexapeptide 11.

My review…
At night your skin rejuvenates itself so it’s important to give it a helping hand and I highly recommend this nourishing and enriching night cream. It’s so good, I could bathe my whole body in it. The formula (as with all Kores formulas) is lightweight and glides on effortlessly. The results when I wake are exceptional – super-soft, ultra smooth skin.

Wild rose oil

Wild Rose Advance Brightening Face Oil
What is it?
A nourishing treatment oil containing antioxidants and real rose petals.

What does it do?
It replenishes skins moisture and reduces fine lines and discolouration.

My review…
I knew this would be my top product when I opened the box to reveal a cute bottle with heart shaped logo and real petals. Not only did it look beautiful, it worked too. The dropper was easy to use and the subtle rose scent was lovely too. Having massaged in about three drops before bed, I woke up to brightened, refreshed and glowy skin.

Wild rose sleeping facial

 

Wild Rose Advance Repair Sleeping Facial
What is it?
A rich, velvety night cream, containing skin-boosting vitamins and antioxidants.

What does it do?
It gives skin an intense hydration hit and retexturises skin to leave it glowing and radiant.

My review…
The cream was rich and thick so I knew it would give me an intense burst of hydration. Having applied this after the drops of face oil, the cream glided on and soaked in well. Although I used both products together, it didn’t feel too thick and I still felt like my skin could breathe. In the morning my skin was smoother, brighter and had a healthy glow.

eye cream

Wild Rose eye cream
What is it?
A smoothing eye cream with subtle rose scent.

What does it do?
It reduces the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. Packed full of vitamins, it nourishes and protects the delicate eye area.

My review…
Often people think that eye cream is not an essential but the eye area is the most delicate skin. This eye cream was the perfect texture for adding moisture, without overpowering the thin skin. The subtle scent was soothing too.
