Review: Korres Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturising and Brightening Cream

I recently purchased the Korres Flower Power Kit which had a mini tube of this moisturiser. I loved it so much I used it up in about 2 weeks – and that was using tiny pea-size amounts to make it last as long as possible! I know that by putting a little tube in the kit Korres were hoping I’d be convinced enough to shell out for the full size pot, and their cunning plan worked. But in my opinion, this stuff is worth the reasonably priced £20. The 40ml pot should last me a fair few months, and that’s using it every day. A little goes a long way with this product (as I learned the first time I liberally slathered it all over my face)! I use it every morning before applying my makeup as a sort of moisturiser-primer in one. I have the one for Normal to Dry skin, but they also offer the same cream for combination and oily skin.

The cream has a lovely texture. It’s not too heavy which makes it ideal to use in the mornings, and I love that there’s a brightening element to help give my skin a radiance it so often lacks in this dull English weather. It smells of a gorgeous rose scent thanks to the wild rose oil, which is also a great source of Vitamin C and helps to repair, soften and heal skin. The cream also contains SPF6 and, while it’s not going to give my pale complexion much protection in the summer, every little bit of SPF protection helps in the winter and spring, when I often forget to concentrate on applying high SPF products!

I really like Korres as a brand. They are dedicated to using all natural and organic ingredients, specialising in Greek flora (they started as a Greek pharmacy), use renewable energy and eco-friendly packaging, making purchasing their products thoroughly guilt-free!
