I Love Korres!!!

I love these products! I started out by buying 1 small item of theirs after wondering around a new store by my work - loved it! So I looked them up, saw what they were about and what else they had out there, and decided to buy the moisturizer - I have been a fan ever since. This was the promegranate moisturizer, which is for oily/combin. skin. I have always had a problem with oily skin, and this was the first product I have bought that has made my skin happy and I am in my late 20s. I have now bought one of their eye-makeup removers and face scrubs and am planning to replace everything I use with this line. I really think that the lack of mineral oil, silicone, and propylene glycol has made a huge difference for me, and my skin has responded really well so far, so I am very happy! All I can say is to try something of theirs at least once to see if it makes a difference, because you never know...I didn't expect much of a difference, but I am 100% happier now.

So far so good

I have only just discovered this company! I think they are really on to something. The packaging is so simple and elegant. Everything smells wonderful and they use only natural ingredients.

I highly recommend the Guava showergel, use it with the Guava body butter. The smell makes you feel like your on holiday. Skin feels great too.

I only gave a 4 star rating because I haven't tried everything they have to offer-yet!
