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+9

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+2

Anyway.

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.

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+4

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+5

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.

Korres+Yoghurt+Mask+6

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:

Mineral Oil
Silicons
Parabens
Alcohol
Animal by Products (not tested on animals either)
Synthetic dye
Sulfates

See more below:

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?

Did you like it?

Kyowa Rose Hip Makeup Removal Cleansing Tissue Review

I was browsing around Sasa looking for a steals and deals when I noticed that they are now carrying Kyowa Rose Hip Makeup Removal Cleansing Tissues! Coolness! I have these hanging out just about everywhere in my house and office. I keep ‘em by my bed, on my vanity, in my bathroom, in my desk draw…they are kinda my go to item for freshening up makeup, cleaning brushes, and removing makeup on the fly.

Kyowa+Rose+Hip+Makeup+Removal+Cleansing+Tissue+2

Kyowa+Rose+Hip+Makeup+Removal+Cleansing+Tissue+9

Read more about why I love ‘em after the jump!

I’m a big fan of MAC Makeup Remover Wipes but damn they dry my skin out bad plus they kinda sting a little bit. I’ve long since replaced them with Kyowa Rose Hip Makeup Removal Cleansing Tissues that I buy at my local Asian supermarket for a buck. That’s right, $1 for 30! Score! A steal and a deal, thank you very much.

They do a rather fab job of removing all my makeup without drying out my skin so I keep buying ‘em for quickie makeup removal when I’m lazy plus I use ‘em for a variety of other reasons too since the price is right. Do keep in mind that they epically fail at removing waterproof mascara but honestly have you ever met a wipe that does a good job with that? I haven’t, not even MAC’s version.

Kyowa+Rose+Hip+Makeup+Removal+Cleansing+Tissue+3

Although I do like these for super quick makeup clean up I really dig having them around for wiping my brushes in between shadow color changes. Swipe a few times and my brush is nice and clean for my next color plus dries really quick. These also make a nice pick me up in the summer when my forehead is being oil, quick wipe removes the oil and I can brush on a bit of powder to mattify.

Honestly, they are pretty multitasking and the price can’t be beat. When I seen them on Sasa I was kinda excited that the rest of the world could now indulge (that is if you don’t have many options around in regards to small Asian shops, markets, etc…) although on Sasa they do retail for $3.20 USD but still if you’re doing a Sasa order it’s not too bad a deal to throw a box in your cart to take them for a whirl.

They smell fresh and clean, leave my skin moist without a tight, itchy dry feeling, and multitasking as a remover, brush cleaner, and more! What more could a girl want at this price?

Kyowa makes several styles of the wipe, so pick the one you want and get cleansing! The Muse loves ‘em!

Korres White Tea Facial Fluid Gel Cleanser Review

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++1

Korres+White+Tea+Facial+Fluid+Gel+Cleanser++2

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.

Korres+White+Tea+Facial+Fluid+Gel+Cleanser++3

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

Korres+White+Tea+Facial+Fluid+Gel+Cleanser++4

Korres+White+Tea+Facial+Fluid+Gel+Cleanser++5

Korres+White+Tea+Facial+Fluid+Gel+Cleanser++7

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!

Lush UK Promo: Lush Night in for 2

The Muse and her best friend Jai had lunch today and as we picked at our gourmet cuisine of Nerds, Diet Cherry Pepsi, and Twizzlers we came across the new Lush UK Promo.

Boy, were we ever tickled when we seen that we can get the new Lush Night in for 2 for 10! That was less than the cost of our exquisite lunch.

After lunch we looked through our pockets and came across a few pennies, some left over cheetos from the night before, and a few dollars. After each producing 5 each we gave Lush UK a ringy dingy and ordered ourselves a Lush Night in for 2 kit!

Indeed, Nerds and Cherry Pepsi did make it’s way onto our powerbooks screens after seeing this particular graphic….

caznick2

So for 10 we snagged ourselves a kit which includes two muslin clothes, two mini Lush Ultrabland cleansers, a Lush Cupcake Face Mask (neither of us is experiencing teen acne but we sure do love the smell of chocolate mint!), two toner tabs, and two mini Lush Gorgeous moisturizers!

allforten

Are you getting excited yet? I know we were nearly rolling in fits of joy while we ordered. The entire package is fully customizable to your skin type so you pick the mask, you pick the moisturizer, and you pick the toner tabs you want.

Now Jai and I are just waiting for it to arrive so we can have a skin slumber party!

w00t!

Lush Night in for 2 is exclusive to Lush UK so airmail fees apply, we had ours shipped to a friend in London for free (we had a coupon) and she’ll ship it over to us which will be around $8-$9 USD however if you’re doing a large order, airmail directly from Lush UK works out at a rather nice rate. Lusk UK ships without the UK and worldwide. In order to order Lush Night in for 2 you must call Lush UK Mail Order, the item is not available for order off the website. For further info about the promotion check out this link. I failed to mentuon that Lush Night in for 2 is for UK residents or anyone who can get a friend to ship it over as the face masks are not shipped outside of the UK, apologies for not saying as such.

call mai

If you’ve never tried Lush Skincare before this is a perfect way to experience a little of everything! I sure hope that Lush NA picks up on this so others can order it without higher airmail fees.

Korres Body Butter in Quince Review

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+Natural+Products+Body+Butter1

Korres Body Butter!

Oooo….

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.

Until now.

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!
