|Korres Wild Rose Moisturizer and Eye Cream|
"Wild Rose fruit is noted for its high vitamin C content that demonstrates significant repairing activity to fine lines and pigmentation disorders. Furthermore, wild Rose oil, rich in linolenic acid, offers significant moisturizing, healing and softening properties. At the same time, it forms a protective film on skin that helps the cell pigmentation and improves the texture of the epidermis."
Buying this I had high hopes but at the same time I wasn't expecting miracles. I was using them everyday in my night routine and I've seen some difference in my skin. In case you don't know I have combination skin and during colder months I tend to get more dry patches than usual. Therefore I need a rather rich moisturizer and the Korres one was more than enough. The cream is rather thick and you don't need a lot, so it will lasts you a long time but on the packaging says that you need to dispose it 6 months after you open it. To be honest I don't know whether that is true or if it's ok to use it for a bit longer, maybe anyone could inform me about that? I've been using the 24 hour moisturizer everyday for 3 months if not longer and I'm only about half way through it. Now, I can't say for sure whether it helps pigmentation disorders or not but I noticed less redness on my face. I have to admit that after applying it my face looks brighter and feels really soft. The only "downside" I could point is the smell which slightly strong and reminds of roses but that only if you mind slightly strong smell, though it becomes less strong over time. Personally I think the smell is ok and it doesn't really bother me so for me there are no downsides.
The eye cream has spf 15 and it supposes to brighten and help with fine lines and dark circles. Even though it has spf I'm using it both at night and day. I like the amount of moisture it provides and the texture is light so it absorbs rather quickly. It slightly brightens the under eye area but unfortunately I don't think it helps dark circles nor fine lines, at least not on a visible scale because I haven't seen any difference. Besides I honestly don't think an eye cream can do much about dark circles because there are many factors that can cause dark circles such as lack of sleep and no cream can't do anything about that.
Overall I like this set and would recommend it if you are 20 something years old girl and only want simple moisturizer. Have you tried any of the Korres moisturizers? What is you favorite Korres product?
