New! Korres 3 in 1 Cleansing Water and some guests

If you're anxious about who's the guests, scroll down the bottom of this post and you'll be amazed!
I hope ;)
If you've read my previous post, then you already know that I've been loving this product during last month.

It's the new little sister of the best-selling White Tea fluid gel, it falls under the "cleanser" category and it claims to take away all grime, face make-up (including the eyes!), while toning the skin in one step.
Let's break it down:

Packaging: the standard semi-transparent Korres bottle, feels so soft to the touch! The typewriting has changed, though- the big letters describing the product in English, French and Greek serve as an adornment, too. The lid has also changed- much better than the regular screw-on cap. The bottle is packaged in the typical cardboard box that I fancy a lot. Good job, Korres team!

The product: it's a liquid with the same fluidity as water, so it's probably low in glycerine. Contains organic white tea extract and hamamelis. Free of soap, alcohol and a bunch of other synthetic ingredients, as you can see below:

Scent: same as the White Tea fluid gel, I dare say it's a fresh masculine scent. No problems with that- I'm all for it!

Effectiveness: Korres says that "...the use of natural cleansing agents ensures excellent compatibility with the eyes and skin", and I have to agree! I don't know what's in it that makes it perform so well, but it does! My face make-up and eyeshadows, all gone with a single swipe of a cotton pad. As for mascara, it took a small effort to be completely removed, but to Korres defence I've yet to find a liquid eye make-up remover that easily takes away all mascara traces.

Any negatives? Well, it goes through very fast- considering how frequently I use it, it's going to last me for 3 months tops.

Would I repurchase it? Probably yes! It's a pleasure to use, takes shorter time to cleanse my face than using 3 different products (milk cleanser, eye make-up remover, toner) and it smells fantastic! Let alone the fact that it's perfect for travel, when I'm in need of multi-tasking products.

Oh, and it cost me around 10-11 euros ;)

Now it's time for the post's guests... Are you ready?

It's about Korres' second take on fragrances!

Once again, spices, fruits, flowers and aromatic woods come together in unique scents that capture the Korres identity.

Sadly, the old Rosewood scent is discontinued (sniff!) but the two best-sellers with Saffron/Cardamon and Pepper/Jasmine are still on the market, albeit in a 50ml bottle.

The 6 new formulations are:

* Heliotrope/ Ylang Ylang/ Citron
* Vetiver root/ Green Tea/ Cedarwood
* White Tea/ Bergamot/ Freesia
* Iris/ Lily of the Valley/ Cotton
* Vanilla/ Freesia/ Lyche
* Paeonia/ Vanilla/ Amber Pear

All formulas are phthalates, polycyclic-musk compounds (PCM) and nitro-musks free, while containing Rosmarinus Officinalis as a natural preservative.

Are you excited? I know I am!
Can't wait for the new perfumes to hit the market and sniff them all!



  1. this is such a good recommendation! I was looking for a make up remover, but I was not willing to spend a fortune on lotions, removers and so on! I will definitely check it out!
    Do you think it's good to a sensitive skin?

  2. very nice review, i'm actually going to try the cleanser myself :)
    thank you :) xx

  3. @ElenaKat, I don't see any reasons why it won't be suitable to sensitive skin, it definitely doesn't feel itchy or "tightening" on application! Hope that helped ;)

    @fashion written with a lipstick, great! I hope you'll love it as much as I do!

  4. omg E, you're tempting me with Korres goodies :( only we dont have access to Korress here :( *sobs*

  5. Oh that's too bad! I'm hoping it's not too long Korres branches out to Asia, they must know it's a big market ;)
    But don't worry, I'll probably add sth Korres on a giveaway!

  6. oh i will give korres a try too now that my 3 in 1 cleasing milk by apivita is running out.
    have you tried any make up product by korres? i'm tempted to buy some of his eyeshadows and lipsticks.

  7. αυτό το καθαριστικό ήθελα πολύ να το δοκιμάσω, αλλά μάλλον θ'αργήσω γιατι έχω ήδη ένα σωρό μισοτελειωμένα μπουκαλάκια κ αρνούμαι να ψωνίσω καινούριο. αλλά το χω στη λίστα!
    τα αρώματα, δοκίμασα ηδη τα 2 τελευταια που αναφερεις με βανίλια, πολυ συμπαθητικα αλλα δε με ξετρέλλαναν κι έτσι δεν αγορασα, αν και εψαχνα ενα για καθε μερα

  8. @evi, in all honesty I haven't tried anything from Korres make-up line- the lipsticks/ lipglosses looked ok to me, but the eyeshadows I've tried were so... wrong! No pigmentation at all! I hope the testers were old or they've changed the formulation. If you decide to buy sth from the line, please let me know how it performs ;)

    @stella, χα χα, καλά κάνεις που χρησιμοποιείς τα μισοτελειωμένα! Α, δηλαδή τα αρώματα του Κορρέ έχουν βγει στα φαρμακεία, Hondos Center, κτλ; Ωραία, θα πάω να τα τεστάρω! Είναι αλήθεια πάντως ότι απαιτούν έναν χ χρόνο προσαρμογής του συνδυασμού τους...

  9. This looks like a decent cleanser, I might give it a go. As for eye make up remover, the best for me is olive oil. It's the only one that removes all mascaras and eyeliners and you don't feel guilty about rubbing your eyes and your lashes with it cause it nourishes them. Try it and let me know! That way your Korres Cleansing water will last loner too! ;)

  10. It sounds nice! :) How big is the bottle? 200ml?

    I still haven't tried the olive oil trick and I'm sure it works great, but if you dislike all that oiliness, you might wanna try Garnier Clean Sensitive Ntemakigiaz 2 se 1 eidiko gia adiavroxo makigiaz! ;) You soak up a cotton pad with this, place it on your eye and hold it there for 10 seconds. It removes everything! ;)


  11. mmmmm.....na mia endiaferousa agora....
    thanks a lot girl....

  12. @Arietta, ah I must do some research on using olive oil for removing eye makeup- so far I knew that my ophthalmologist has advised me against it and I've read somewhere that oils can weaken the lash bond. But since you're using olive oil and it hasn't caused you any problems, it baffles me even more!

    @Stavroula drugstoreandbargainlover, yes it's the typical 200ml bottle. Same goes for those 2-phase liquids, they contain oil and I'm not sure if it's ok for my lashes! Mind you, I've had some eye infections and I'm very weary of what I use on my eyes. Must check it on the web ;)

  13. @Danielitsa, τίποτα, κοριτσάκι! Χαίρομαι που σου άρεσε ;)

  14. Hmm, I feel like I could use this, I hate the one I using atm (L'oreal one, too strong)..
    Remind me doll, u have oily or combination skin?


  15. Tis l'oreal to difasiko ine mes th ladila, meine makrya! Tis garnier einai arketa apalo k sta systatika de vlepw kati se Oil. An de vreis ta systatika tou sto net pes mou na sta antigrapsw ap'to mpoukali mu! ;)

    Dld elaiolado pou sou pe h Arietta de mporeis na xrisimopoihseis pou einai kai fysiko?


  16. @Tina, my skin type is combination during winter and it gets oily during summer. Oh and it's quite sensitive, year-round! I think you'll like this product, it's mild and effective in the same time ;)

    @Stavroula drugstoreandbargainlover, ναι είναι καλό να αποφεύγω τα έλαια πάσης φύσεως για τα μάτια μου! Για να καταλάβεις, ο οφθαλμίατρός μου είπε ότι το καλύτερο κ ασφαλές προϊόν για ντεμακιγιάζ ματιών είναι το... Johnson's σαμπουάν χωρίς δάκρυα! Άντε βγάλε άκρη...

  17. Nai alla pws 8a fygei h maskara k to molivi me to Johnson's? :/ Xrisimopoieis adiavroxh maskara?

  18. Όχι, δε βάζω αδιάβροχη μάσκαρα γιατί περνάει ένας αιώνας μέχρι να τη βγάλω! Δοκίμασα μια φορά το Johnson's με λίγο νερό και είναι γεγονός πως οι βλεφαρίδες μου καθάρισαν. Εκείνος λέει ότι αν δεν τις καθαρίζεις καλά, μένουν υπολείμματα μακιγιάζ στη ρίζα τους κι έτσι δημιουργούνται οι μικρο-μολύνσεις. Και πέφτουν κιόλας. Και δημιουργούνται πιο πολλές τσίμπλες (!). Κι ότι είναι προτιμότερα τα ντεμακιγιάζ ματιών με βάση το νερό, εκείνα με τα έλαια (ακόμη και το ελαιόλαδο) μπλοκάρουν τη ρίζα της βλεφαρίδας και δεν "αναπνέει".

    Ουφ, ελπίζω να μη σε κούρασα ;)

  19. A malista, katalava! Egw gia to proswpo xrisimopoiw tis Avene to Micellar Lotion kai katharizei mia xara, to xrisimopoiw k sta matia gia ta teleftea ypoleimata meta to ntemakigiaz twn matiwn kai einai san neraki! ;) Exei kai megali syskeuasia 400ml pu symferei poli oikonomika! ;)

    Ti na me kourazeis kale, afou egw se rotisa na mou peis hehe ;)


  20. Α, είναι κι αυτό σαν νεράκι. Καλό, θα το κοιτάξω στο φαρμακείο! Thx ;)

  21. Ha ha, glad you liked it!
