Korres Natural Products
Oh my eyes spy a brand new primer from Korres!
Since I’m such a Korres fan girl I’m all over the new Korres Face Primer. My ears perked when I heard “silicone-free”, oh I love you my little silicon free primer. Creates flawless skin sans silicone indeed I’m liking this more and more.
I hate silicon based primers with a passion as they make me itchy and they pill on my face. This formula is silicon-free and is a 99% natural formula that refines skin texture while minimizing fine lines, wrinkles, and pores.
I wants it!
What do you think?

I sweat Korres so hard. Oh we already established that didn’t we?
But seriously I’m just loving so hard on Korres lately and can’t help myself. I’m so excited for Summer as I’m looking forward to what they might be releasing!
In the mean time let’s talk shop about how wonderful Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation is.
Jump ahead for the big rave.
Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation is formulated without parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, and phthalate. Loving the natural formula aren’t you? The formula is packed full of vitamins C and E, SPF 10, and ginger extract to tone and moisturize!
I wouldn’t call Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation a true “foundation” as it’s a very light, sheer coverage and for this I’d say it was more like a tinted moisturizer but that doesn’t stop me from simply loving it. As the weather warms I’ll appreciate the light formula that evens out my skin tone, gives my face a soft, radiant glow, and gives just the right amount of coverage to my face to make it look flawless and healthy.
The formula is water based which makes it fast absorbing, non greasy, and easy to blend. Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation packs all the good stuff inside and leaves out many ingredients that could be irritating to skin which is why I highly recommend trying this out if you’re sensitive or easy to break out. The formula is light weight but allows for decent buildable coverage that leaves behind a very natural, flawless look.
I’m partial to the interesting “toothpaste” style packaging design as a tiny squeeze gets me exactly what I need to do my entire fast while making it easy to travel with, easy to store, and easy to get that very last drop of product out of the tube when you’re through.

If you’re seeking lighter coverage due to warmer weather, problem skin (clogged pores, acne, sensitive skin, etc…) or just like feel the need for a more natural, lighter foundation I highly suggest checking out Korres Ginger & Vitamins Foundation. This one is a winner and Muse Approved for purchase.
Overall, I loved how my skin was left looking after use! Un-made up, natural, and just pretty and most important, healthy minus dull spots.
Loves this one!
Check it out at Sephora or Korres.
Loving all over it?

Korres White Tea Facial Fluid Gel Cleanser Review
Korres Body Butter In Quince Review
Korres Yoghurt Mask…god doesn’t that sound bloody brilliant? “Yoghurt…” I feel like I’m in England! Damn Americans we ruin the language..we forgot the “h” somewhere when the word traveled across the pond.
Korres Yoghurt Mask is a soothing, cooling, mask meant to hydrate oily skin that feels dehydrated. Whoa…that was way technical for the Muse…how does oily skin feel dehydrated? I’m so confused.
But have no fear…..I tried it the past week or so and it’s working on my DRY not so oily, dehydrated skin. I’ve never found a moisture mask that I really liked or one that worked for that matter. In the case of Korres Yoghurt Mask it does technically deliver a good dose of much needed moisture to my skin but it also successfully makes my already dry skin feel a bit tighter after I wash it off.
The formula is a creamy moisturizing blend that has little to no scent and contains good for you ingredients like yoghurt, watercress extract, vitamin E, and olive oil. Simply apply a layer of the mask onto skin and wait for 10-15 minutes prior to rinsing off.
It feels rather wonderful on my skin and I was particularly delighted that it absorbed fully as I waited for 15 minutes. After washing off I was equally thrilled at how moist my face was feeling but sadly after I dried off my skin began to feel a bit on the tight side which triggered my need to slather myself in good night cream to avoid the oncoming dryness I knew was about to crop up.
I don’t blame the product because in this case I believe that it’s my own silly skin causing the problems as I’m already quite dry with the cold weather and this is meant for oily skin. I’m looking forward to giving this another test out and a new review in the Summer when my skin is alot less dry and a whole lot oily!
It deserves to be mentioned that the formula is amazingly skin friendly and contains 83.2% Natural ingredients while excluding all of the following preservatives and chemicals:

I’m pretty impressed with how far Korres has taken the “natural” product rage and I’m equally impressed with how well everything has worked for me in the collection. I’ll definately be exploring the line more deeply and bringing you more reviews soon.

What your fav Korres products?
The Muse is quite busy loving all over the Korres Natural Product line. I’m been terribly impressed with everything I’ve tried from Korres lately and next on my hit list of fab finds from Korres is the Korres White Tea Facial Fluid Gel Cleanser. Love!
This product has the potential to replace all my beloved cleansing oils and my HG (holy grail) Philosophy Purity Cleanser.
Korres White Tea Facial Fluid Gel Cleanser is a cocktail of vegetable derived soap substitutes with oat proteins that are a gentle cleansing solution for the skin which removes makeup, moisturizes, and deep cleans, all without dehydrating the skin and washing clean away.
Absolutely love this cleanser for the simple fact it doesn’t dry my skin out. This alone makes it worth it’s weight in gold. My skin is a bit picky when it comes to cleansers and it dries out terribly with certain brands. For years now I’ve been using Philosophy Purity, Kose Airy Whip, or an oil based cleanser for makeup removal and on a rare occasion a powder wash when I’m feeling lazy. These items I’ve found to work well for me and keep the dry evil flakes at bay. I can safely add Korres White Tea Facial Fluid Gel Cleanser to my line up now as it’s extremely gentle, removes everything from my face, and doesn’t dry my skin out.
The formula is a runny gel base which lathers very little. I honestly don’t like foaming cleansers anyway so the fact that it barely lathers is a plus for me. It has a soft, faint fresh smell which makes it great for anyone who hates scented skincare products. To use the product you simply dampen your face and apply a small amount of cleaner to your face, rubbing in circles to melt away your makeup, rinse and you’re left with clean, glowing skin. It rinses off your skin well without any residue and leaves behind nice, soft skin with no trace of makeup
If you’re looking for a bells and whistles kinda cleanser this is not it but if you’re like me and just want something simple, deep cleaning, and a product that won’t strip your skin, then this is simply an outstanding product because it does all that.
Who should try it?
- Anyone who loves a good, simple cleaner that works without stripping your skin!
- Anyone who has a problem with cleansers making your skin tight or dry
- Those who like a basic cleanser that offers deep cleaning
All in all I simply loved this. I was figuring it out at a price of $21 USD it actually works out almost the same if I purchase an 8oz size of Philosophy Purity. I’m getting a little less product for the price but I love the cleanser so much I really don’t mind the switch.
I’m Muse Approving Korres White Tea Facial Fluid Gel Cleanser for purchase as it’s outstanding. Really likey this one ladies! Try it out for yourself, it’s a winner.
Have you tried this cleanser?
Do tell me, I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!

The Muse feels rather badly that it’s taken her so long to discover the awesomeness that is Korres Natural Products. Well, Hello Wonderful! I recently fell in love with the Korres Sugar Plums Gift Set released for Holiday 2008 and soon after a mass amount of e-mail flooded into my inbox telling me I had to try this by Korres, I had to try that, and Muse please review the foundation, review the body cream, review the eye cream, etc…etc…
After ALL the recommendations I got I was feeling a bit curious….had the Muse missed out on an important brand?
Obviously she had.
But what’s this?
Korres Body Butter!
The Korres Sugar Plums Gift Set was my first venture into the brand and honestly I wasn’t expecting much and was shocked at the amazing quality of each item in the kit. I think I take for granted the fact that aside from Lush, many “natural” brands aren’t exactly the best formulas around. Do you experience that too? Anything and everything has jumped on board the organic, natural, paraben free bandwagon lately. Honestly, it’s great but I think many of the products I’ve tried haven’t been all that and a bag of chips.
I was absolutely delighted with the quality of makeup that Korres had available and it struck me that I really needed to dive in further and explore the brand more fully especially considering many of you really wanted to hear reviews about the various products.
Today I’ll be reviewing Korres Body Butter in Quince and allow your Muse to tell you how amazing it smells, how simply amazing. At this moment I wish you could lean in and scratch and sniff your monitor because I really don’t think I can put into words how heavenly this smells! As per the package description it’s fruity and spicy! The scent starts off with a base note of floral, a middle, heavier note of fruit….almost like a crunchy, sweet pear, and finishes with a tiny bit of spice like that of a carnation. I just can’t even begin to describe how amazing it smells! I wish they had a perfume in the same scent, I’d be on it like white on rice.
This is a body butter and the formula is extra moisturizing for drier skin types so indeed it makes just about the perfect skin care item for the cold, harsh weather at the moment. Personally I just like slathering it all over my hands and arms so I can sniff myself every five minutes and sigh in delight. The formula is slightly greasy but it absorbs very well while giving skin a nice dose of moisture. The greasiness goes away quickly enough and leaves behind a nice soft, silky finish. My elbows and knees are happily soft at the moment thanks to this. The lotion comes in a rather fabulous upside pump which easily distributes a small or large amount of cream depending on what you need.
All in all Korres Body Butter in Quince is fabulous, truly a great product and well worth it’s inexpensive $21 USD price tag. The Muse gives Korres Body Butter her highest Muse Approval for purchase. This one is a keeper!
