Korres is a cruelty-free company that offers an extensive line of Rose based products. Mineral oil, paraben, and silicone free product retails for $59CAD and promises an improvement in skin radiance after as little as 14 days.
I like the smell of roses, and this stuff definitely will make your face smell like a bouquet. I am admittedly not a fan of products that come in a jar. I would prefer a pump container for sanitary purposes. The jar itself is quite lovely, the cream is thicker in consistency, and it does smell lovely.
I tried this cream as recommended for 14 days. My skin was soft and glowy. I did also break out while using the cream and I didn’t notice much difference in my dark spots. That could just be me though. I feel that continued use would have made a more substantial difference in my complexion but, the sudden skin freak out made it unreasonable for me to keep using it. I should mention that I do have somewhat sensitive skin and I did not try the entire line. I could have been reacting to this product or interaction between this product and something else that I use on a regular basis.
I like the Rose oil, I live for the Hyaluronic Acid and I would chunky dunk in Vitamin C if I could. For all of those fantastic qualities I just didn’t find this product to be a smash hit. I do look forward to trying other products from this line and this excellent company to see what will work for me.
As described on the Korres website:
More than a mask, more than a night cream, this overnight facial-in-a-jar delivers brighter skin by morning. Infused with wild rose oil that evens out skin tone, repairs fine lines, moisturizes, heals, and softens skin, this face cream with vitamin C also helps minimize the appearance of skin discolorations and black spots.
A breakthrough in beauty sleep. The weightless soufflé melts into skin and works overnight for brighter, petal-soft skin by morning. Day after day, week after week, uneven tone and dark spots will continuously improve. After only 14 days you’ll see skin that’s brighter, more even-toned, and exceptionally radiant. Key ingredients: – Wild Rose Oil: Evens skin tone, repairs fine lines, moisturizes, heals, softens skin. – Stabilized Vitamin C: Helps minimize the appearance of skin discolorations. – 15% Rose Water: Provides weightless hydration. – Imperata Cylindrica Extract: Provides continuous moisturization. – Hyaluronic Acid: Highly moisturizing and enhances collagen reproduction.
