Korres Natural Products
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!

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.
Anyone tried Korres Yoghurt Mask?

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!

I think I missed the memo going around saying how freaking aweome Korres is. Um hello how did I not know about this?
Yeah well I’m thinking I didn’t get the memo because this guy is taking care of them!
Anyway. Note to self: Korres is the awesome!
Ok, so now that we established that Korres is my new favorite brand of all time I can get on with my review of the Korres Sugar Plums Gift Set! Holy beautiful Batman! This set is too gorgeous for mere words and what’s inside…my the very my! It’s sincerely good stuff and you shouldn’t bother reading further just head to your nearest Sephora and snatch it up for yourself!
I think a few people had mentioned they were on the bubble about this Gift Set and honestly so was I. I’m guessing a few of your concerns were the fact that plum colored shadow is kinda iffy and you might have also been worried about the gloss not being up to par and the balm just being an add on that you really didn’t need. I know these are some things that entered my head while I was playing a game of tag with myself debating on purchasing the set. My main concern was that I don’t do plums or purples so well! As much as I love these shades I felt like they might make my dark circles prominent and my puffy eyes even worst looking then they already are!
However, I dove in and decided to purchase the Korres Sugar Plum Gift Set during Sephora’s Friends and Family event and I’m so happy I did because it’s a sincerely an awesome set and comes with my highest recommendation and Muse Approval for purchase!
The set includes Korres Eyeshadow in Plum, Korres Lip Butter in Plum, and Korres Cherry Full Color Gloss in Plum 27. All the items are highly pigmented which is thrilling as the an entire “All Natural” theme sometimes forsakes quality but not the case with these items! This is the first time I’ve tried anything by Korres and honestly the quality and inexpensive price tag should have me returning for much more!
Although all the items really impressed me I have to give major props to the Korres Cherry Full Color Gloss in Plum 27 . I’m unsure why they are calling this a lip gloss as it’s SO much more then merely a gloss! The color payoff is much like a lip cream and comparable (and possibly better then) to Laura Mercier’s Lip Velvet. They are glossy but not so much of a mirror shine more like a a semi-glossy, intensely pigmented lip color. Plum 27 is a plummy maroon with a deep red base that’s stunning when paired up with the shadow included in this gift set!
The Korres Eyeshadow in Plum was also richly pigmented and very easy to blend. As I mentioned above I was worried that such a deep shade of purple would make my eyes look quite tired while displaying my dark circles even more but turns out the color lends an aura of mystery and seduction to my eyes. I know, I know Muse and seduction should never be used in the same sentence but honestly the shadow just has a certain sexy, seductive feel that makes eyes literally pop! I used the shade on my own without anything else aside from some black liner on my lower water line and my eyes just sizzled! Truly a great shade and pairs up beautifully with the lip gloss in the kit!
Now the Korres Lip Butter in Plum was the item I was kinda meh about. I honestly don’t use balms aside from when I go to bed at night. I find them messy and feel they apply horribly which is why I stick to applying gobs of balm at night to my lips when no one is around to witness it dripping off my lips onto my chin. Korres may have single handedly turned my thoughts around about balm! Whoa! This too was an amazingly pigmented surprised! The butter smooths on lips like a lip cream and you’re left with a richly pigmented pout which you can top with a bit of gloss for a real smoking lip look!
For my look below I used everything included in the kit and just added my own mascara, a little blush from the Bobbi Brown Mauve Palette, and a bit of liner on my lower waterline!
All in all I’d say nab this set right away! It’s a limited edition set so who knows how long it’ll be around! I think the shades are simply gorgeous evening wear for the holiday or anytime really! The colors just work well together and create a very seductive finish! The price is fantastic at well which is $29.50 USD (I paid even less during Sephora’s FF!). This one is a must have in the Muse’s opinion and I highly recommend nabbing it!
