Korres Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser, Greek Yoghurt Smoothie Priming Moisturizer and Wild Rose Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial Review

As mentioned in yesterday's review of Korres Pomegranate AHAS & Enzymes Resurfacing Mask, 
I also received some deluxe samples of some of their other skincare products. Below are my thoughts on each.

Korres Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser ($26/full size) - Bittersweet
I've always wanted to try Korres Greek Yoghurt Collection. I love eating yoghurt and I've heard it's really good for your skin. This cleanser is described as soap-free, foaming, with nourishing Greek Yoghurt. It's also suppose to be for ALL SKIN TYPES. This cleanser did a great job in cleaning my face and even removing all of my makeup. But around the 3rd day, I noticed dryness (white patches along the sides of my mouth and nose...nowhere else). The 4th day I noticed some flaking, so I stopped. The key ingredients are Greek Yoghurt Concentrate, Honeysuckle and Amaranth Seed Extract. I wouldn't recommend this cleanser for dry or normal skin. I felt it was too drying. Maybe Combination and Oily Skin Types would like this. It's gotten some AMAZING reviews, but it didn't work for me. There's also a Greek Yoghurt Toner and Makeup Wipes in this collection.


Korres Greek Yoghurt Smoothie Priming Moisturizer ($42/full size) - Not Sweet
Korres states you can use this priming moisturizer on the face and neck as the final step in your skincare regimen before applying makeup. You can also apply it at night under any sleep treatment as a hydration booster. Well, I didn't have much luck with this product either. As a primer, it was just ok. But it doesn't provide much hydration for Dry Skin. Again, I think this would work better for Oily and Combination Skin Types. Like all Korres formulations, this is made without petrolatum, mineral oil, silicones, propylene glycol, and ethanolamines. It's suppose to plump and strengthen skin for perfect makeup application. I didn't see ANY DIFFERENCE from the side I put this primer on and the other side.


Korres Wild Rose Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial ($48/full size jar) - Bittersweet
This night cream promises brighter skin by morning, to even out skin tone, repair fine lines, moisturize, heal and soften skin. Whew! That's a lot of promises! This also has Vitamin C, which is to help minimize the appearance of skin discolorations and black spots. Now my experience. I only had a deluxe size of this, but that was enough to use for about a week. You don't need much of this serum like night cream. I noticed soft skin when I woke up, but not enough moisture that my skin required. I could still see lines and skin discoloration. I would probably need more to see those results. LOL But I wouldn't purchase this on my own because of the strong scent of rose :( I love roses but for some reason I can't get with rose-scented skincare. I know many that don't mind, but I'm just not a fan. Plus this didn't moisturize or hydrate my dry skin enough. Also the fact that Vitamin C is packaged in a jar means its not as effective if contained in a pump. So those were my concerns.

As you can see, overall I wasn't impressed with these products. It seems the Korres Greek Yoghurt, nor the Wild Rose Collections are for me. I was much more impressed with the Korres Pomegranate and will consider trying more of that collection in the future. I'm glad companies are offering these deluxe samples for us to try to see if something works or not. To pay full price is heartbreaking when something doesn't work.

Oh it's a shame that these didn't work for you Kim, but as you said it's nice you had enough of a sample to try them out and make your own mind up before splashing out on the full size version. IT's a good idea to have larger samples like this I think! :)

Hope you are having a nice start to the week so far and you had a lovely weekend :)

Oh that is disappointing to hear. I use their wild rose moisturiser and love it to bits. I was looking at exploring more of their range, like the black pine eye serum, but I might start to look into it a bit more. Don't want to spend the $$$ if it's going to be lacklustre

How disappointing! I've wanted to try their yogurt series too and it's too bad it doesn't work for dry skin. i have combination skin so maybe I'd fare better?

I always feel like it's not so bad to be disappointed by products if you only had a sample size of them to use. When you buy the full size of something and it doesn't work well, it feels like a total disaster. I always stay away from rose scented products due to an allergy, but I'll keep your review of the yoghurt collection in mind, too, Kim.
xox,

So sorry to hear that this Korres line wasn't a winner, Kim. The Pomegranate one does seem to work better for your skin from the sound of it. I do have combo skin so that cream cleanser might work ok for me:) Thanks as always for your honest reviews.

This is sad that none of the products were sweet!

Sorry these didn't work for you. I don't know why but I don't like cleaning my face with anything besides something that has a grittiness to it. I don't love foaming cleansers.

Bummer these didn't work out Kim. I've tried a a deluxe sample of the Korres Wild Rose Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial and while I don't mind the rose scent, like you I found that the product didn't really do anything for my skin at all. I'm just glad I didn't purchase it ;p

I have a Korres White Tea cleanser in my stash and I should give it a try. Shame that these didn't work for you, Kim but as always, I appreciate the honest, no bullshit reviews.

That’s too bad these didn’t work for you Kim! I agree it’s nice that companies send samples like this though, so you can try stuff out without playing full price! And I didn’t know that vitamin c more was effective if it’s in packaging with a pump!

Ivana Split said...

sorry you didn't see any result using these products. As I always say, can't win them all.

Sorry to hear that these products didn't work for you :( I think I tried a sample of the Wild Rose Sleeping Facial a while back and found it very underwhelming as well. I do have the Korres Greek Yogurt SPF which caught me by surprise as I usually prefer Asian sunscreens!
