Recently I attended my first Korres Party, held at their newly opened store at #B2-16 Raffles City Shopping Mall.
Korres, a natural beauty brand originating from Greek, introduces the three new additions to the Wild Rose collection – Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser, Wild Rose Eye Cream With SPF 15 and Wild Rose 24hr Moisturizing & Brightening Cream.
The WILD, WILD WORLD of Wild Rose is KORRES all—time best-selling international range!
Each blogger was presented with a unique goodie bag that contains a press kit, a Wild Rose Eye Cream with SPF 15, a S$30 voucher (can only redeem Wild Rose product on the day of the event) and a 25% voucher (for all Korres products). I eventually used the S$30 voucher to redeem a Wild Rose Lip Butter which costs S$21 and I gave the balance to my blogger friend. I have also received 3 sampling products to try.
Wild Rose Key Ingredient
Wild Rose oil, the main ingredient of the Wild Rose range, has high vitamin C level which is claimed to drive significant repairing activity to fine lines and skin color disorders. It is claimed to be rich in linoleic and linolenic acid, demonstrating significant healing, moisturising and softening properties. In addition, it forms a protective film on the skin that helps cell regeneration and improves the texture of the epidermis.
3 Latest Wild Rose Products :
NEW Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser – S$48 / 150ml
Product claim : A gentle, yet potent exfoliating cleanser suitable for daily use that provides effective soap free cleansing and brightening, without dehydrating the skin.
Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser is formulated with a combination of natural exfoliating grains derived from Rice seeds and Cherry stones that gently cleanse the skin from impurities and excess sebum. It also contains a blend of Bilberry, Sugar, Orange and Lemon extracts which is claimed to be a rich source of naturally occurring alpha hydroxy acids that smoothes and conditions the skin by enhancing cell renewal while promoting skin radiance, without dehydrating the skin (contains Aloe).
Wild Rose Exfoliating Cleanser is claimed to be suitable for all skin types.
I have briefly went through the ingredient list during the event and I eventually decided to skip this cleanser as it contains lemon extract and an irritating ingredient (oh no, I can’t remember now, I guess it should be fragrance). A no-no for my sensitive skin.
NEW Wild Rose 24h Moisturising & Brightening Cream – S$58 / 40ml
Product claim : Wild Rose oil, the key ingredient in this product, is a natural source of vitamin C, that drives significant repairing activity to fine lines and skin color disorders, while adding brightness and radiance to the skin. Other product ingredients include Phytic acid that works as an antioxidant, skin lightener and anti-aging factor, Olive Oil that nourishes and moisturises the skin and Grape seed extract that provides antioxidant protection. It secret ingredient lies in the Imperata Cylindrica extract (Moist-24) which ensures 24-hour moisturising by continually regulating the cellular water equilibrium.
I decided to skip this moisturiser too as I have a couple of brand new moisturizers (from other brands) to finish up. Wild Rose 24h Moisturising & Brightening Cream does contain some helpful plant extracts.
NEW Wild Rose Eye Cream with SPF 15 – S$69 / 15ml
Product claim : Containing SPF 15, the velvety eye cream shields and brightens the eye area while simultaneously work against fine lines and dark circles.
NEW Wild Rose Eye Cream with SPF 15, claimed to be the HERO in our beauty regimen, is a day eye cream that is formulated with SPF 15 for sun protection.
Although there are a lot of NO-NOs ingredients, however this eye cream does contain fragrance. A little disappointed, am still contemplating if I should try it out. WHY?!
<Extracted from press kit> Other active ingredients include active agent derived from the fermentation of Black Tea which boosts the brightening and line smoothing action of the cream, thus enhancing radiance, luminosity and restoring the ‘volume’ of the skin. Yeast extracts increases the cellular oxygen consumption and improves micro-circulation, energising the skin and decreasing dark circles. Sorbus domestica extract activates blood micro-circulation, thus decreasing under eye puffiness (eye bags) and dark circles. Sugar derived betaine stimulates collagen and elastin production enhances cellular energy, resulting in the strengthening of delicate skin around eye area. Vitamins C and E offer potent antioxidant protection while provitamin B5 provides moisturising benefit. <end>
It has a light emollient texture that absorbs into the skin pretty easily.
Korres Wild Rose Lip Butter – S$21 / 6g
As mentioned earlier, I have redeemed this Wild Rose Lip Butter using the S$30 voucher that is found inside the goodie bag.
This buttery lip balm has a light gel texture and it contains shea butter and rice wax for deep hydration.
It melts on the lip and it provides a sheer, red tinted finish.
