Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Korres – one of my favourite brands (a Greek skincare brand with roots in Athens’ first ever Homeopathic Pharmacy) – is launching a very special gift set: the Wild Rose Skincare Collection. The rose, a traditional symbol of love and beauty and the beloved flower of the Goddess Aphrodite, is the main ingredient in this collection, which contains a Japanese Rose Body Butter (250ml), a Japanese Rose Shower Gel (250ml) and a Wild Rose Lip Butter (6g), all of which are particularly hydrating and illuminating on the skin.
Wild Rose oil is a natural source of vitamin C, which demonstrates significant repairing activity to fine lines and skin colour disorders.
The shower gel smells of very fresh rose petals and leaves your skin feeling velvety-soft and cleansed, whilst the body milk is highly nourishing (rich in aloe and almond oil) but slightly sweeter in scent and instantly absorbed into the skin. The Wild Rose Lip Butter is also buttery and slightly tinted, giving your lips a gorgeous natural rose-tinted glow. It contains shea butter and rice wax to provide deep hydration, which is perfect for this time of year. All is all it’s a great package and, given the superb quality of the products, it’s very reasonably priced. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
Korres Valentines Day Japanese Rose Gift Set Retails for RRP: £20.00 (€25.00) and is available to buy online from www.ASOS.com.
