With a history in homeopathy (No, we're not talking about the Trojan War, here), the original Korres was a pharmacy. But, through the years, founders Lena and George Korres expanded their line of natural-based products throughout the world. They place an emphasis on utilizing the innate potency of herbs and, specifically, Greek flora. Korres avoids the use of chemical substances such as mineral oils, silicons, parabens, and propylene glycol, among others. And their Nobel Prize-winning lab allows them to suck the greatest from the simplest ingredients. One of their best-sellers, their range of sleeping facials, follows the trend. The Greek Yogurt and Wild Rose Sleeping Facials and are super-charged with the ever-so-simple base. Product names also exude a sense of effectivity and allure, portrayed by some of their other best-sellers such as the Greek Yogurt Nourishing Lip Cooler or the Volcanic Mineral Mascara.
I can't say I'm a Korres expert, but I'm also no stranger. My testings come in duos; perhaps that's proof that I've been so satisfied with their products that I needed another dose...and I'm even contemplating a third. The first of the Korres loot is the Lip Butter in Pomegranate, which, in addition to the stunning coral color, packs a punch in the hydration department. The same Lip Butter in Jasmine is a newer offering to my stash with a sheer pink tinge, the same great nourishment, as well as a cupcake scent. Equally as delicious is their offering of body washes (or gel douche, shall I say). Both the Shower Gel in Guava and Fig offer a punchy fruit aroma, but with an earthy base that has me yearning for perfume versions.
Maybe I'll just have to snatch those spritzes on my next trip to Greece, but said trip may never happen if I continue dish my savings on more Korres plunder.
