Korres Lip Butter and Body Butter in Guava

I've been meaning to get around to reviewing this for awhile now but I thought I had accidentally deleted the picture but low and behold it was just buried in my pictures folder under a whole bunch of other pictures. I really need to organize and clean up all the pictures on my hard drive...

I picked these up together during Sephora's Black Friday sale for $10. I hadn't tried Korres before but I was interested in trying them out because they are a more natural brand. Most of their products are plant based and are formulated without Parabens, Sulfates, Synthetic Dyes, Petrochemicals, Phthalates, GMOs, and Triclosan.

I've been really impressed with these two products not only are they natural but they are effective. The lip butter is awesome it has a great smell, glides on smooth and moisturizes your lips fabulously. The only thing I don't like about it is how soft it is in texture and how easily it melts on the skin, because it tends to melt a bit onto your finger a little goes a long way so don't be in the jar getting product for too long or you'll have a mess on your hands. I"m also not a fan of its size you don't get a lot of product, the jar featured is full sized.

The body butter is awesome for any and all rough bits. It's very creamy and does not feel greasy on the skin. Once absorbed it leaves your skin feeling soft and supple with a lovely guava scent. The scent may be too strong for some people however it does fade lightly after being applied but straight out of the bottle it's quite potent. I do personally like the scent its very fruity and warm but I don't think it's a scent for everybody.

Lip butters come in six other shades and retail for $12 for 0.21 oz. Body butters come in six other scents as well and retail for $29 for 7.95 oz. You can find these products at Sephora or high end cosmetic retailers.

Have you tried any Korres Products?

  3. I have never tried these before, but the cream sounds like what I would like. I hate creams that leave my hands feeling greasey after I have put them on.

  10. I've never tried Korres before but mainly because I'm such a cheapskate when it comes to moisturizing products, which I know I shouldn't be. :(
