I don’t know if it’s because I’m a Greek girl or not, but I’ve had a soft spot for Korres products for quite some time. The brand’s popularity has blossomed since I discovered them in a pharmacy years ago in the southern Peloponnese, yet the quality and integrity of the ingredients they use has always remained authentically…well, Greek. I can almost hear my yiayia (Greek for grandmother) telling me to use yogurt on my face to soothe it.
Korres was kind enough to send me a winter care package of some of their featured products to try out. In light of the winter weather ahead, and many moments of dry and irritated skin due to the outdoor cold or indoor heating, here are some winter-approved products that will make your skin say OPA!
Yogurt Instant Soothing Gel
This moisture booster is amazing for when you need to up the ante underneath your regular moisturizer or need a quick fix of comfort when your skin is irritatingly dry. It instantly nourishes, hydrates and relieves dry skin while providing a light cooling effect. Works amazing underneath your favourite tinted moisturizer or BB Cream.
Yogurt Body Butter
I’ve used other Korres Body Butters before and they are amazing! This time of year my skin is so ridiculously dry that I scratch to the point where sometimes it hurts. Thank you to YOGURT for being a luxurious, moisture-rich cream, not only cooling and soothing my skin, but hydrating the hell out of it. Shea butter softens, smooths and nourishes and helps to also improves the skins elasticity. The scent is fresh and pure, much softer than other body butters from Korres. It’s quite nice.
Milk Proteins Foaming Cream Cleanser
Foam and cream come together to make a gloriously nourishing soap-free cleanser that leaves skin soft and supple. Normally, dry or sensitive skin would steer clear of anything ‘foaming’ due to it being synonymous with further drying out or irritating the skin. However, MILK is the shining star in this cleanser which is an age old beauty secret of Cleopatra’s, who bathed in the stuff to preserve her skin’s suppleness. The ‘foam’ in this cleanser is more reminiscent of a creamy lather and feels incredible!
