On a cold winter day back in 2002, my friend and I were wandering New York City and popped in a Sephora to warm up. Actually, I didn’t even need to use the excuse of cold weather to duck into the beauty mecca. I love shopping at Sephora when I am in New York and always have – our store here in Tulsa is a ways from home and frankly just not quite the same. It was on that visit to Sephora years ago that I found my love for Korres.
I am currently testing yet another new favorite, the Korres Milk Bar. With all the testing and trying I do, I was eager to use this mild soap as my skin can become easily irritated. And regular readers know I can’t resist a great lather. What’s special about this bar (and the entire Korres Milk line) is that it cleanses and heals. The proteins from the milk reduce inflammation. In addition, almond oil works to nourish and moisturize. The natural emollient keeps skin looking supple and young. My skin is left totally clean but still hydrated. And this bar, like all Korres products, is so beautifully packaged and make for pretty gifts.
I remember trolling the aisles of Sephora over a decade ago, swooning over this Greek brand that had such rich and wonderful smelling lotions. The love affair continues – today it isn’t only the body butters I am hooked on. But their skin care has become renowned and does so well with my dry and sensitive skin.
Using yoghurt as part of a skin care routine isn’t a new idea. As a natural source of vitamins and minerals, yoghurt can nourish stressed, dry skin. After my afternoons in the sun, the cooling cream kills every bit of redness and zaps skin with moisture the sun and heat have stripped. There is a reason I am already half way through my jar. I keep reaching for it. In fact, I am a little sad it is being left at home for my trip this week. Reuniting will feel so good!

I remember my first experience with KORRES – I was trolling the aisles of Sephora with my good friend in New York City on a winter day about 10 years ago. We stumbled across a small display with the most decadent body butters (which I was hooked on for years). Since, I’ve fallen hard Korres Lip Butter in this shade. And now you can add a mascara to that growing list.
First, a little about KORRES. The company is rooted in Greece with a commitment to natural skincare, color and body products. Evolved from the oldest homeopathic pharmacy in Athens, KORRES today strives for environmentally friendly formulas.
Their newest mascara is derived from volcanic soil to give the deepest, darkest color. While the product discription talks a lot about volume, I’ve found length is where this formula prevails. The glossy, luminous finish with a natural look is perfect for the spring “not too done” look. It leaves my lashes feeling conditioned, but still wears well throughout the day. The tapered brush head has cross-hatch bristles, making it easy to get even those small lashes in the bottom inner corner.
Polymers derived from Sunflower Seeds adds luminosity and depth to deep obsidian black color. Cotton extract mimicks the strength of cotton fibers, improving the strength of your lashes while you wear the mascara. And Vegetal Waxes, Thyme Extract, Quackgrass, and Marine Algae extracts condition and hydrate.

This is silky, slippery skin care for your lips. The color literally melts on. It is still fairly sheer but you are getting a good wash of color. I love how healthy this lush balm makes my lips feel. It is sold as a holder and refill. The swatch is from Nordstrom.
I never knew a pencil could be so buttery and soft. This literally translates into a gloss, but packs a punch of color. This is for those who want a true, hot pink rose on their lips. It still is moisturizing with ingredients like vitamin E, hyaluronic spheres, and phytosterol esthers.
