Korres Vanilla Plum Collection Review and 30% Off Your Korres Online Order

Visions of Korres Sugar Plum Fairies drifted through my head last year.  You know, I surely hope, that you hauled that set.  It’s probably one of thee best sets Korres has offered to date.  I actually have had the pleasure of speaking to the person who put it together, count her a legend in my book!  It was one of my fav’s last year and if you don’t own it we can’t be friends no mores…..kidding…..I’ll give you a second chance to go haul it with a pretty little coupon code if you’re extra nice to me today!

Korres Vanilla Plum 7

Jump ahead to see what’s swirling through my head this year plus a great way to save some money by hauling some Korres!

It’s not Sugar Plums this year dancing through my head but Vanilla Plum Fairies, same thing, kinda, sorta…..

Korres is all about the fancy gift sets with the lots for more price tag I so dearly love this year. Hey everyone! Christmas is on SALE this year. Everywhere you look cheap prices are abound. Korres is offering some serious sets for less and the new Vanilla Plum Collection happens to be one.

Korres Vanilla Plum Collection is a limited edition set available in two smart sizes. One is $19.50 (this is the one I have) and one is $34.50, both sets include the same exact items but you get bigger sizes by indulging in the higher priced one. The set includes Korres Vanilla Plum Shower Gel, Korres Vanilla Plum Body Butter, and Korres Vanilla Plum Lip Butter.

I used the shower gel and body butter this morning, count me excited as I’m not waiting for Christmas to enjoy vanilla sugar plums dancing around my shower stall. The scent is a spicy warm blend of vanilla and ripe plums. I don’t get much of a fruity, sweet smell from it but more of a dominate vanilla with a spicy, warm note that’s quite delightful and festive. Likey! It kinda reminds me of Lush Potion (for the Lush lovers out there) but a bit more subdued. I kinda wish and hope that Korres would start doing body sprays or fragrance of some kind with their scents as some are too yummy not to enjoy in a fragrance format. You’ll also get a Korres Lip Butter in Vanilla Plum which is a deep, rich off red. Kinda reminds of what Snow White’s lips must have looked like.

I am leaning towards doing alot of stocking stuffer purchases from Korres as the deals can’t be beat. To further tempt you Korres has kindly offered up free shipping and 30% Off your total order of $35 or more using promo code MUSE. I’m not sure when this expires, I’m getting info now, but go haul if you so please.   UPDATE: Expires December 31st, 2009. By the way try out the Korres Delight Your Lips Set, I’m testing this out today and oh my god awesome lippies! Really moisturizing and beautiful! You can get 4 for $21 plus don’t forget 30% Off so it brings it down to $14.70 for four lipsticks! Gasp! Super steal.

Happy Hauling!

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 tried to haul some Korres (really I did!) but I couldn’t find the coupon codes for 30% or free shipping.

  • sparklingpinkgorilla

    I always find Korres stuff in TjMaxx for super cheap but there’s not a wide range of scents. I really want to try this Vanilla Plum scent so thanks for the coupon code 🙂

  • Melissa

    Dearest Muse, Please stop with the major discounts? Thank you. (kidding) 🙂 I love vanilla plum, got one the last time you had a 30% code posted but I like guava better and now your stocking stuffer idea is fab! I’m thinking of buying a couple of the travel sets and divving them up. So as much as my wallet hates reading your deals and tempting reviews, keep up the good work!

    • the Muse

      lol sorries melissa 😀 That’s what I’m doing plus the 30% Off totally helps! My pleasure doll!!!!!! 😀

      chelsea it wasn’t you it was me hun! I’m sorry 🙂 I just corrected the post doll!

  • Andrea

    YEH! This beats Sephora’s coupon for this weekend (did you finally get it??). I want that plum sugar make-up set you got–the one where you look so cute! I’m good on lotions (thank you, HSN for selling their lotions for so cheap), but I want to explore their gift sets and face lotions. My mom needs some anti-aging stuff, so I’ll explore.

    ps QVC sells NARS now!

    • the Muse

      NOOOOOOO wahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! Dunno why Andrea but nada yet. 😀 YOU NEED that set. It’s incredible. I brought it last year during Sephora Friends and Family and LURVE IT!!!!!!!!!! You’re too kind thanks for saying so 😀

      Get the lipsticks! It’s like $14.70 for four! They are SO nice. moisturizing and lovely! 😀

      I KNOW haha I tivo’ed!

  • Marie

    I love the Vanilla Plum but it smells nothing at all like vanilla or plum, IMO. It’s very spicy, almost cologne-y to me.

    Also, though tomorrow (I think), you can get a free 7 pc gift with a $40 purchase – I just got mine in the mail yesterday and it’s really nice – lots of goodies!! The code is SPARKLE (you get free shipping too).

    • the Muse

      hey marie I always find that plum translates into a carnation like smell for me 😀

      yay niceeeeee! You can also get free shipping plus 30% Off using promo code MUSE up until December 31st!
