KorresSaturday, 18 December 2010 by Lydia Parafianowicz
I’m a huge advocate for natural skincare products, and Korres is no exception. I absolutely love the latest products from this Greek skincare brand, which was founded in 1996 by George Korres, who worked at Athen’s oldest homeopathic pharmacy. He used his knowledge and experience working with over 3,000 homeopathic remedies to create a line of products dedicated to natural formulas.
Today, Korres offers a range of products, from hair and body to face and suncare. Their latest launch has been an addition to their unique Milk Proteins line, which (you may have guessed) is based on milk ingredients. It may seem a bit unorthodox, but milk has actually be used in cosmetic products for hundreds of years because of its' highly moisturizing and purifying qualities. It is packed with nutritious ingredients like essential amino acids and vitamins which help skin synthesize
collagen, elastin and keratin. Who knew?
The latest addition to the Milk Proteins includes a Gentle Foaming Cream Cleanser. It’s detergent-free and gently removes dirt from your skin while nourishing and hydrating below the surface. I now use it in the morning and evening as my skincare regime and love the results. I also have their Milk Proteins Cleansing and Makeup Removal Wipes for the Face and Eyes, which are indescribably handy when I’m exhausted at the end of the day and looking for a quick-fix to clean my face. They smell lovely and work wonders – a few swipes across my face and eyes and the challenging job of removing all my makeup is complete! Rich in essential amino acids, the wipes also contain pro-vitamin B5 which soothes and reduces redness. The only downside is the bulky pack of wipes, which are a bit heavy for traveling, but give me something to look forward to when I come home.
