Gift set alert: Korres Pamper Me Up

KORRES is a fantastic Greek skincare brand that I absolutely love. It’s conscious of its ingredients – using natural and organic where ever possible and avoiding anything potentially harmful across its product range. And now, just in time for Christmas, it has launched a series of gift sets containing  its worldwide best sellers, making them a sure hit if you’re looking for stocking fillers or beauty gifts for yourself or your loved ones. My favourite one in the range is Sleeping Beauty, a great pack ideal for travelling or sleepovers. beautyspot

The set contains some great essentials: a shower gel, a facial cleanser, a lipstick butter, and a 24 hour moisturising cream that contains wild rose.

One of my favourite skin ingredients is rose, and so is my husband’s, so this is one I’ll have to share with him…The Wild Rose 24-hour cream SPF6 normal-dry 16ml is very hydrating as it contains Wild Rose oil, a natural source of Vitamin C and what I love about it the most is the smell and the fact that it has an SPF in it, perfect to use to combat the winter sun. The Basil Lemon shower gel 40ml is another classic product that you’ll enjoy for its creamy, hydrating texture and divine smell – especially in the morning as the lemon zest gives you a kick. The White Tea fluid gel cleanser 16ml is a gel that foams slightly giving you that sensation of really cleansing your skin. It contains vegetable derived soap substitutes with oat proteins in its formula for maximum moisturising. The final product in this collection is the Korres Wild Rose mandarin lip butter stick 5ml in Rose, a great butter stick that is ideal to use on your lips  during the harsh, cold winter months. This particular product has a hint of pink, giving you a barely-there make up look that is so on-trend right now, and simply exudes a healthy groomed look. It also has an SPF 15 to ensure your lips are totally kissable.

Utter Indulgence

laiafarrangraves_beautyspotJust 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.

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know how much I love organic products that really work. So Weleda’s Body Oils gift set is really up my street. As they are small sizes, it’s a great way to try out the oils before knowing which one you love the most and committing to buying the full size. The smaller sizes are also ideal for taking to the gym, or carrying in your hand luggage or handbag. There are five oils in the set that are guaranteed to cover all bases: Wild Rose Body Oil (to pamper), Pomegranate Regenerating Body Oil (to regenerate), Citrus Refreshing Body Oil (to stimulate), Lavender Relaxing Body Oil (to relax) and Sea Buckthorn Body Oil (to nourish and restore). So you have an oil for every need and state of mind you could possibly find yourself in. The bottles are 10ml each and the oils are so pure they are even suitable for vegans.
