Korres Natural Products
Ahh the joys of being a lazy Muse. It happens on occasion don’t you know? I come home late, I’m tired, I’m trying to wind it down from a stressful day and I’m quite lazy enough that I’m not wanting to deal with my 20 step program to remove makeup, it’s a chore being me. When I’m busy being a lazy little bum I head for makeup wipes to clean my face on the fly so I can head straight to my bed and watch 10 Things I Hate About You on my Tivo Playlist. Gawd, that Ethan Peck
is all kinds of cuteness.
My latest discovery for wiping off fast are the new Korres Pomegranate Cleansing & Make Up Removing Wipes. Oh joy they smell so pretties and are terribly cheap too, loves it!
Check it after the review.
If you don’t really like makeup remover wipes I highly suggest grabbing a package of Korres Pomegranate Cleansing & Make Up Removing Wipes just for the sake of sniffing them. You can totally get high off this scent. I guess it’s supposed to be the scent of Pomegranate but it falls into more of a fresh, rosy, floral mysterious scent that my nose can’t identify outside of saying, “oh my god so beautiful!” Excuse me Korres can we get a body spray or something in this scent? Soooo good!
On top of awesome smelling they also do a mighty fine job of a quickie clean up on my face. Sadly, they aren’t going to wipe off heavy duty waterproof mascara but they do a decent job of wiping off the rest of the gunk that needs taking off my face at the end of a long night. The cloths are nice and thick and have a smooth, soft texture. They are good for both combination and oily skin types and won’t dry out your skin and supposedly they even tighten up pores. They aren’t terribly saturated but they do have just enough remover on them to get off much of your makeup on those lazy nights when Ethan Peck is waiting for you on your Tivo.
Overall, if you’re looking for an inexpensive ($12 for 25 wipes), great smelling wipe that’s paraben free and created with good for you ingredients Korres Pomegranate Cleansing & Make Up Removing Wipes is the way to go. They aren’t going to do the job of your normal cleansing routine but they are great for quickie makeup removal on the fly.
All the yak from my face eww!
As for this Muse she’s off to smell them some more….!
set out to create primer he though of filling the pores of beautiful girls everywhere, of taming their oily skin, of creating a perfect canvas for makeup. During this creation process the Muse thinks he might have forgotten the rare few of us who don’t really have a problem with oily skin or large pores……those of us who have dry skin, sometimes flaky bits on our face, and feel the need for a moisturizing primer that isn’t silicon in nature.
Although he forgot much of this Korres remembered that we were around and in turn created the exact primer we need.
Jump ahead to hear my review.
Korres Primer makes my day all the brighter with it’s silicon-free formula. If you’re looking for a primer that makes your foundation easier to blend, allows your foundation to apply easier, and offers extra moisture to your face, Korres Primer is the way to go.
Although debate could arise that a creamy, moisturizing primer is basically the same concept as using a facial moisturizer, not the case. Facial moisturizers on a whole compared to primers are vastly different as they are a bit more greasy, aren’t as dense, and don’t offer that smoother feel that allows foundation to sit on top of skin rather than blend into the skin.
The formula is a moist, dense cream that adds extra moisture to the skin while prepping and priming for foundation. I’m unsure if I’d recommend it for oily skin but dry and normal skin types should rejoice at the prospect of a silicon-free primer. It’s lightly scented with orange which I think is very nice although some may find they don’t like it if they are sensitive to smell, as for me I think it just adds to the appeal of the product. The product absorbs upon contact with skin but still manages to cast an invisible barrier on top of skin so that foundation doesn’t oxidize or absorb away completely into skin. It keeps foundation fairly fresh but I didn’t notice extended wear when using this.
Overall, if you’re not a fan of silicon based primers and just seek a simple, effective way to prep and prime your dry skin (or normal) prior to foundation Korres Face Primer is a great choice. I liked it alot and will purchase it again when I’m through. The $28 price tag could be a bit much for some if you are just wanting to test out so it’s nice that Korres has a smaller size for a mere $10 which should get you a few uses prior to indulging in a bigger size if you end up loving it.

You head to work on Monday expecting it to be like any other day of the week when your boss pulls you aside with some incredible news. He relates to you that he wants to send you to London for the entire Summer to work at the UK branch. You’re so excited you can’t believe your good luck! As soon as you leave his office you dial up your best friend who lives in England to share the details. Your best friend informs you that it would be a terrible time to come to London right now because the predicted weather for the next three months is gloomy, cloudy weather and rain! You’re kinda feel badly after you hear this especially since you’re having perfect Summer weather right at home. You keep your chin up and decided you’ll need a few makeup essentials to bring Summer with you to cold, dreary London. What will they be (choose five)?
I’d choose a fun Summer scent, a great bronzer, a pretty shade of blush, a shimmery, Summery palette for my eyes, and a good primer to keep my makeup from falling off my face in the rain!

Warm, coconut will help me think Summer during those rainy days!

As if you haven’t heard enough how much I love this bronzer! Shimmery cheeks with hint of gold and peach will bring a little sun to my cloudy day in London!

Your best friend asks you to dinner on Friday night and explains she has amazing news to tell you! You meet up with her and as you’re ordering dinner she springs on you she’s getting married to an Arabian Sheikh. With your mouth hanging open you gasp in shock! After getting over your shock you gush how excited you are for her. After the waiter leaves with your order you proceed to ask her for all the details. She explains that the wedding will take place in the Sahara Desert. Trying not to gasp in shock you begin plotting skincare items you’re going to need to keep your face properly moist. Pick three items to keep your skin in order!
Lush Ocean Salt
Most people don’t use Ocean Salt on their face because they feel it’s too harsh but I happen to love it! It’s ideal for those crazy desert days when my skin begins to flake up!
Mandom Perfect Assist 24 Double Moist Cream
This will keep my skin moist and dewy while the sun is beating down on my head!
Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch Sun Block
Gotta have high SPF for those sunny days in the desert! 85+ on this one! w00t!
Ok! Now it’s your turn. The desert and dreary, cold rain for three months! Babble it peeps and tell me what you’d need to survive these nasty weather conditions.
