kores sleeping beauties

 

I love my Korres night creams! Since my first use I have been hooked on the Greek Yoghurt Advanced Sleeping Facial and I was excited to try the other two pots in this collection. How great are holiday kits? You get to try products you have been eyeing and the smaller holiday kit product sizes mean I get to try more for my money and decide what I love before buying the full size. I have been using the Black Pine for a week now and it might be pulling into the lead for a new fav. The product feels amazing on my skin and I love how it tightens and lifts my skin. I am prone to winter heck any season allergies and some days wake up with the dreaded puffy face. Since I started using the Black Pine Night treatment I have found my face is firmer and less puffy even on mornings I am in an allergy haze.

Whether the person on your list is a fan of Korres or new to the line, they are sure to love this set.
