Smelling of roses

laiafarrangraves.pngThere are night creams and then there are night creams, and the Wild Rose Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial from KORRES, is definitely in the latter category.

It’s a night cream with a difference, because it acts like a facial and repairs your skin while you sleep, providing intense hydration. It also contains vitamin C for extra potent skin brightening and radiance, reinforcing the natural cell renewal process overnight. When you first apply it, its velvety texture literally melts away into your skin leaving it smelling simply delicious – sweet with a hint of flower. It’s intensely hydrating and soft on the skin, so it’s suitable for all skin types, and contains wild rose oil and hyaluronic acid to help combat dry skin – something I’m always battling with. I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now, and especially love how nurturing it feels when I apply it, and also how my skin feels in the morning – no tightness or dullness. It’s definitely a little bit of luxury at your fingertips, and worth investing in if you have the slightest tendency to dry skin. So make sure you get your beauty sleep…what’s not to like?

KORRES Wild Rose Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial RRP: £26.00 and available to buy online from www.MarksandSpencer.com. For more information go to www.korres.com




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.
