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

Cool Down with Greek Yoghurt!

s1522606-main-Lhero

One of the best products I have tried this year. With combo skin it can be hard to find the balance of moisture without going overboard or skimping either way creating more oil. I had never tried a “sleep facial” and I was interested to see how this would feel. The product is light and fluffy like a mousse it has an amazing fresh yogurt smell and when you put it on your skin it has a cooling effect. It absorbed quickly and my face felt smooth and moisturized and fresh. The next morning I wake up and my skin feels great and the best part no oily feeling or the need to immediately run and wash my face.

The change in my skin in one night was enough to sell me. With continued use my skin is feeling better and my pores are starting to shrink up a bit. After two weeks I have noticed my skin is less oily all day and never oily in the morning. Thank you Korres for a great moisturizer that doesn’t overwhelm my combo skin!

I love the idea of makeup primers but find so many of them too heavy or they tend to make my face oily. Korres Greek Yoghurt Primer is the perfect balance for my combo skin. The formula is very lightweight and silicone free, it absorbs instantly leaving a perfected canvas for my makeup.

I love the fresh scent of this primer, I just need a pea sized amount and my pores appear smaller and my makeup goes on smoothly and stays put. My skin feels much better all day and since its silicone free I don’t have any weird oily or plastic feel to my skin.
