Brand Crush: Korres

From time to time it happens, a girl just falls head over heels for a new beauty line, simply adoring every product she tries. This has definitely been happening to me lately. I’ve got a brand crush on Korres.

It all started a few weeks ago when I went on a little shopping spree on Beauty.com, a site I love because of its frequent and plentiful gift-with-purchase giveaways. In addition to several other brands, Korres was offering a free mini shower gel with qualifying purchase. Having heard good things about Korres, I decided to try a couple of things.

I had heard long ago that Korres shower gel in Fig was a cult favorite and best seller, so naturally I had to try it. I immediately fell for the packaging – crisp, clean, un-fussy and natural, the bottle makes the teeny tiny shower in my new apartment look like it belongs in a luxurious spa. The shower gel smells expensive, and leaves skin lightly and pleasantly perfumed. And soft. Definitely a winner.

(A word to the suds-lovers out there: as with most natural products, the shower gel does not lather up as dramatically as some of its less natural counterparts might. It still lathers, but if you want a lot of soap suds, you’ll need to use extra gel.)

I also ordered a pot of Korres Lip Butter, a silky smooth lip product that feels like – you guessed it – “buddah.” It’s ultra moisturizing and long-lasting. Again, the fresh, clean packaging just spruces up my lip product collection. I bought the cheery pink Quince color, but I have also heard great things about Korres Lip Butter in Plum and Sheer Peach.

The products live up to their reputation, they smell great, they feel great, and I really just love the whole Korres vibe. In a time when “going green” often means going crunchy, it’s nice to have a pretty alternative.
