Korres haul

So yesterday I was strolling around Hondos Center-

and naturally enough, I couldn't leave the place without doing some little shopping to cheer up my moods ;)

This time, I headed to Korres:


Wild Rose face cream: after feeling terribly bad for not using a daily moisturiser with SPF, I thought of making a nice and mild introduction to SPF with this moisturiser, which has an SPF 6. As you can see, the packaging has changed- for the better, IMO. What do you girls think?

Mandarin lip butter in Purple: having now tried all 13 lip butters by Korres, I can conclude to my favourites: Jasmine in the pot, Pink and Peach in the tube form ;)



Thyme Honey cleansing scrub+mask: after using a couple of products marketed to normal/dry skin and liking them a lot, it was a nice opportunity to make a little break from my Apivita olive scrub and express masks with this duo... We'll see how they work on my combination skin!


Honeysuckle hand cream: this was a rather impulse buy; it reminisced of the aroma of honeysuckle flowers that my dad used to bring us every week when I was little... <3 <3 <3

It all cost me around 30E-
heck, brands like Mac may be pricier in Greece,
but we always have good ol' Korres to splurge on without guilts!!!

So, have you tried any of these products?
Which are your favourites from Korres?

  1. I have Mandarin lip butter in gray (colorless) which I love,it is such a good lipbalm!I have also the Korres "Red Wine" hair protective spray with SPF in the summer which smells amazing.Shampoo "Rice Proteins and Oligoelements" I've tried it, so mild and softening for the hair!Face scrub with almond all time favourite..I adore Korres products but unfortunately face creams don't do much for my skin.Pomegranate face gel makes my t-zone oily like a discoball...Is Wild Rose face cream for dry skin?I would love to try it but I've normal to oily skin and I'm hesitant..is it good?

  3. Καλή εβδομάδα!!! =)
    I had tried the rose cream when it was in the old packaging and liked its smell but it was a little thick for my skin. I did love the serum of the same line though!
    Honeysuckle hand cream with spf and parabens free?! well well well I shall have it really really soon! my hands are very fragile! =/
    For the summer you may want to try the cooling after sun gel! It is extremely good!

  4. καλημερα! ναι δοκιμασα το scrub με μελι. μυριζει υπεροχα αλλα ξαναλεω δεν ειδα το ιδιο αποτελεσμα με το scrub με κουκουτσι ελια απο την apivita. περιμενω τις εντυπωσεις σου!
    για το προσωπο ο,τι και αν δοκιμασα απο το κορρε δεν ειδα τπτ το εντυπωσιακο ως αποτελεσμα. δεν μου εκαναν κ κακο στην επιδερμιδα αλλα τπτ σπουδαιο. εχει ομως αυτο το τρομερο Packaging που θελοντας κ μη υποκυπτεις στο πειρασμο ολο κ κτ να δοκιμασεις :).
    το μονα προιοντα που μου αρεσουν ειναι τα body milks - butters, τα lip balms και τα mango butter lipsticks. ααα κ η επομενη αγορα μου ειναι το guarana σαπουνακι για την κυτταριτιδα.

    κ συμφωνω σε αυτo που ανεφερες σε προηγουμενο σχολιο. τα προιοντα της apivita ειναι πολυ καλυτερα (τουλαχιστον στο δικο μου δερμα)αν κ λιγο πιο τσιμπημενα στην Ελλαδα σε τιμες αλλα υστερουνται σε διαφημιση - προωθηση κ ειδικα στο εξωτερικο.
    αα δεν ξερω αν εχεις πετυχει αυτο, δεν μπορω να φανταστω οτι εχει την επισημη εγκριση της εταιριας, πιο δυσφιση δεν εχεις!

  6. @makeupattitude, oh shoot, I didn't try the almond scrub when it was available- now it's discontinued :( I had bad luck with the Pomegranate cream too, the texture was too weird for my liking! Yes, the wild rose cream is marketed to drier skin types; we'll see how it works on my combination skin and then I'll make a review ;)

    @Blushingloves Irene Greece, aww I'm happy you enjoy wearing it! I'll do a proper review once I use the products a little more ;)

    @Argyro, that's correct, the wild rose cream doesn't fall under the lightweight moisturisers... It's sad that Korres doesn't have a proper spf moisturiser for oily skin!
    Oh oh, I'm all for cooling products during summer! I'll try this after sun gel you recommend!

  7. @evi, LOL!!!
    Καλά, το βιντεάκι είναι σπάνιας καλλιτεχνικής αρτιότητας... Μέχρι το τελευταίο δευτερόλεπτο νόμιζα ότι η μαντάμ κάνει πλάκα! Marketing gone wrong, οι υπεύθυνοι της Apivita παρακαλώ κατεβάστε το βίντεο!!!

    Όχι βρε, στέλνε "σεντόνια" άφοβα! Τα μεγάλα σχόλια είναι η καλύτερή μου!

    @λειντι ντι, ω ναι, κι εγώ δεν έχω εντυπωσιαστεί με το σύνολο των προϊόντων Κορρέ για το πρόσωπο. Ενώ με τις ενυδατικές Apivita είμαι καταευχαχριστημένη, αλλά δε μου'ρχεται βρε παιδί μου να δώσω 30+E για μια κρέμα της Apivita!

  10. @andreana, ha ha I WANT THEM TOO!
    Why would Korres market products exclusive to the Sephoras abroad? I don't get it!

    Yeah, the evening primrose eyecream was crap... And the milk proteins cleanser: as soon as I took a cotton pad to remove it, it had already dried on my skin :(

    @Artemi, ναι ναι μια που ζούμε στην Ελλάδα, ας το εκμεταλλευτούμε, χα χα!

  13. Hey pretty! I recently started my collection of Korres eyeshadows and love them so far! I also bought the Korres bronzer which is so natural(great for my fair skin) and velvety! Best bronzer i've tried! And of course the watermelon tinted moisturizer :)
    I use the Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine and it is amazing.Plus i can't get enough of this sweet scent! I was wondering is there a difference in the formulation of the rest of the lip butters? Or is it just the color? Kisses! :)

  14. The wild rose cream is really really great!It brightens your face, but not too much. I'm so getting the Honeysuckle hand cream next time I'm near a shop that sells Korres!
    Filia!

  15. @Jennifer, hi honey! I'll do my best for a swatch ;)
    Lol if only Korres was selling ALL their products in Greece, we're missing a lot of good stuff over here!

    @Christine, ah you're so lucky! We can't get the Korres face primer in Greece :(

    @dimitra, hey girl! All the Korres lip butters in the pot are of same texture, different colour. Those in the tube are a tad less shiny and have an SPF 15 ;)
    Now that you mentioned it, I must make a closer look at the Korres make-up line; it's odd that I haven't tried anything yet, not even the famous mango lipsticks!

    @Ria, yeah the wild rose cream smells fab too, so far I'm liking it a lot!

  20. @FashionSugarBubbles, εννοείται, reviews για όλα!

    @Anastasia, oh I didn't know Korres had matte eyeshadows, that's great news! Thanks for the info, girl ;)

    @Tina, well so far I hadn't any luck with the Korres moisturisers (except for the organic one) and this wild rose cream might not be the exception either. It made me break out like crazy :(

    @Eloise, yeah, I love Korres...

    @Carolina, oh thanks for the notice!
