And the winner is…

I just found out that the Korres Black Pine Serum has been awarded ‘Winner’ in the Sunday Mirror’s Notebook  Magazine Anti-Ageing Beauty Awards 2013, so I wanted to test it out and see what all the fuss was about. This is a serum with a difference: it has some great components in its formula, but its hero ingredient is the black pine extract, a rich and potent source of polyphenols and pure polyphenol Epigalocatechin, which helps firm up the skin and reduce wrinkles. Korres’ Black Pine Serum launched in May this year, and has already been described as the brand’s most powerful anti-ageing product with firming and lifting action for wrinkle reduction, skin elasticity and re-contouring. I tried it twice daily for a week and already feel hooked on it. The texture of the serum is very similar to aloe vera juice and has a cloudy look about it. When you put it on your skin it’s instantly absorbed and doesn’t leave an oily finish at all, and the nicest thing about it is its sweet smell, which is subtle but very distinctive. It can be used alone or before (under) cream. Either once or twice a day, on your face and neck avoiding the eye area. I can’t say I have seen any changes in a week, but I must admit, my skin feels very healthy and dewy…watch this space… 

To achieve these results Korres collaborated with the Institute of Biology of the Laboratory of Cell Proliferation and Ageing to investigate and harness the exceptional action of Black Pine polyphenol [Epigallocathechin] in regulating metalloproteinases [MMPs] thus maintaining the dermis junction.

Korres‘ Black Pine antiwrinkle firming & lifting face serum 30ml is priced at £39.00. Available at
