Korres Herba Materia Toning Cleansing Foam Review

Ahhh blessed simplicity.

Sometimes it’s what makes my world go around. Simplicity comes housed in a foaming cleanser from Korres with a paraben free formula and plenty of good for you ingredients you’ll agree simple is sometimes best.

Take the jump to hear my rave about Korres Herba Materia Toning Cleansing Foam.

There are some days the Muse goes out with a slip of lipstick, a touch of foundation, and a little dot or two of cheek stain. These are the days I come home and don’t need to do a whole lot of cleaning. These are the days I reach for simple and natural Korres Herba Materia Toning Cleansing Foam.

This soap-free cleansing foam is extremely gentle and ideal for cleansing your face in a flash. The formula seems to be a great one for those with sensitive skin or those prone to tight skin after cleansing. The foam has a pleasant, fresh scent and absorbs into the skin almost instantly upon contact. Rinse with cool water and you’re skin will be lovingly rinsed away of the day.

I prefer using this during my less is more makeup days as it works best cleansing lighter makeup. The foam is an added bonus as I adore foam cleansers. It’s very light, gentle, and simple. You aren’t going to get a ton of bells and whistles just simplicity and sometimes in skin care simplicity is bliss especially for problem or sensitive skin.

Overall, I absolutely adore this for the days my skin chooses to freak out as it’s gentle and washes clean away without drying or creating further havoc.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I’ve been a lurking reader of your blog for some time now…and was so disappointed that I missed the deadline for the Muse/Korres coupon code! Do you know if it’ll come back?

    Also, I read the review you did on the yoghurt mask, and wanted to suggest that you give the thyme and honey mask a whirl! My friend has dry skin and loves it.

    Take care!!

      hi Jamie!

      Thanks for reading 😀 Ummm I dunno. I’ll have to ask. Maybe I can request another one for after the holidays!? I’ll see what I can do 😀

      I’ll def try out the TandH mask on your suggestion 😀 Thanks!!!!!!!!!

    How would you say this compares to the 3 in 1 Milk Emulsion? I’m using that at the moment and I’m almost out… I’m really happy with it, but honestly, I like foam in my cleansers!

    And how long does a bottle of this cleansing foam last? I know you don’t use yours everyday, but I probably would be. The 3 in 1 was 21 USD, but it’s lasted me since around April and I still have a fourth left. Basically, would paying the extra six dollars be justified in terms of lasting power? LOL.

    Yay for Korres! Oh, also, have you tried any of their eye creams?

      hey mollie I adore foam too.

      Sadly haven’t tried the 3 in 1 milk emulsion 🙁 so can’t compare. I’m sorry!

      Hmmmm well I will say I use Kose Airy Whip daily which is actually smaller in size so I’d say you could get 3 to 4 months out of it maybe more if you are using once daily.

      I have indeed tried some of their eye creams..I have reviewed line up but I’m still playing so I can’t say if it’s a yay or nay yet…:-D Eye Creams take a little more time in the testing department!
