REVIEW: Korres Black Pine Firming, Lifting & Antiwrinkle Night Cream

IMG_4279

See this itty-bitty sample? Isn’t that the saddest thing ever? I hate it when I fall completely madly in love with something and all I have is this tiny sample. I’ll be cutting the tube open and scraping it out with my fingernail before the week is out.

Korres’ gorgeous, new night cream is delicious. It makes my skin feel absolutely renewed by morning! It is on the spendy side, but I think I might have to spring for it. I noticed VISIBLE results in just a couple days.

A rich firming, contouring, and lifting night cream powered by a proprietary blend of active and patented ingredients for advanced results.

This luxurious cream works overnight, the optimal time for skin to receive intense treatment, delivering a continuous dose of black pine actives while you sleep for advanced firming, contouring, and lifting action to boost skin firmness, resist deep wrinkles, and prevent sagging. The formula was discovered by blending the highly active and efficacious black pine extract with a proprietary blend containing eight unique active ingredients, five of which are patented.

Research results:
– During two years of primary clinical research, KORRES Research Lab in Athens, Greece discovered that powerful black pine polyphenols maintain the elasticity of the connective tissue better than all other polyphenols studied

The hair is revolutionary Keralon ™ Light heat resistant synthetic fiber, which allows you to style with heat tools up to 320° Fahrenheit.

TO APPLY
Slip the halo over your head, with the extension at the back of your head.
Position band around the top of your head like a hair band. Use a fine-tailed comb to pull the top strands of your hair over the band to blend in.
Style using a curling iron or flat iron if desired, and you’re ready to go!

SPECIAL FEATURES
• Keralon™ Light Heat Resistant Synthetic Hair Fiber – A revolutionary, lightweight hair fiber that feels luxuriously silky and soft, and can be styled with heat tools up to 320° Fahrenheit. It was developed for the HOW™ collection to the exact denier, thickness and weight as natural human hair.

• Double Layer Weft – Two connected wefts of hair provide more coverage, fullness and volume than the single weft found on most hair extensions.
• Invisible Band – Lighter shade band on the light hair colors and darker shade band on the dark hair colors to better blend in with your hair.

After shampooing I apply and let it work for a few minutes while I wash and shave then rinse out. I love that its so light but still leaves my hair super soft and easy to comb through. When my hair is really dry I work a dollop through the mid section to the ends and cover my hair and let it condition for up to 30 minutes. My hair is soft, moisturized and not weighed down and it smells fantastic . Love it!
