Anyone who is a regular reader of Cocktails & Fairytales will know I am a huge Korres fan. I have been using their products for years and their Body Milks are my go-to body moisturiser. It is not very often that you find products that are made with so many natural ingredients and are so reasonably priced. Enter Korres! Korres is a Greek skincare brand with homeopathic roots, using ingredients in its products such as; honey, yogurt and rose petals.
I have tried just about every Korres collection there is, so when I found out they were bringing out an Almond Cherry* range I couldn’t wait to try it! As a lover of cherry bakewell cakes, this was right up my street. Here is what I thought of them…
Almond Cherry Body Milk
What Korres say: “Velvet aroma of sweet almond and fresh cherries. Moisturising body milk, enriched with vitamins and trace elements, essential skin energy boosting agents. The combination of Almond oil, active Aloe, provitamin B5 and Shea butter provides long-lasting hydration while enhancing skin suppleness. Dermatologically Tested.”
What I say: I am a masssive fan of Korres Body Milks and use them regularly. They are perfect for applying when you have fake-tanned as they are Mineral Oil- free, which will strip your tan and leave it patchy. This one is no different, it is free of Mineral Oil, Paraffin Wax and Silicones and is made up of a huge 92.3% natural content! The scent is light and sweet without being sickly and overpowering – no artificial fruit smells here. The thick, luxurious moisturising cream sinks in almost straight away and doesn’t leave a greasy finish. I also love the easy-to-use packaging and the unusual design on the bottle.
Almond Cherry Showergel
What Korres say: “Velvet aroma of sweet almond and fresh cherries. Creamy-foam showergel with wheat proteins and Althea extract, helps maintain skin’s natural moisture levels. Soft moisturising showergel, ideal for everyday use. Wheat proteins form a protective film on the skin, maintaining its regular hydration level. Dermatologically Tested.”
What I say: With 87.2% natural content and smelling SO good, it is so tempting to eat this! (PLEASE DON’T!). This thick, sweet gel smells delicious and lathers up to produce lots of soapy bubbles. I was so surprised how soft and supple it left my skin. The packaging was shower-friendly – no fumbly screw lids etc.
As a Korres fan I was almost certain I would love this set before I even tried it, and how right I was! The sweet, delicate smell of almond and cherry is perfect for this time of year and both products left my skin so soft. If you have never tried any of Korres products I would definitely recommend them as it is good to know exactly what you are putting on your skin!
