Long time MakeupAlley reader, first time reviewer!! Yay :)
I just had to put in a little plug for this lotion - and specifically, the fragrance. Scent is of course subjective - but for me, this is one of the better/best jasmine fragrances I've come across - and believe me, I've been searching.
I find it to be very natural, very subtle, and absolutely gorgeous. It genuinely evokes memories of jasmine blooming in the springtime - rather than some sort of plastic-y, headache-inducing chemical fragrance you'd find in a drugstore (which seems to otherwise be typical of most jasmine scents). And the fact that the lotion is ultra hydrating is just an added bonus. I'd been on the fence about getting this for a while - glad I finally made the purchase :)
While this is a great, thick moisturizing cream, the smell is just disgusting. I love the smell of jasmine, but this smelled like sour rotten apples with just the faintest hint of jasmine. Gave it to my mom who loved the scent. Definitely won't buy again.
Love love the Jasmine Body Butter, got a great deal from QVC and autoship too. They carry the large size tube. The scent smells exactly like the asian jasmine tea you drink. The scent is just divine, very subtle, close to the skin and lasts all day. The igredients are all natural and included rich oils and shea butter for extra moisturizing. Ideal for all year round use.
ABSOLUTELY OBSESSED! :) Love love love this product. The smell is beautiful. Not too harsh. It does have an oily feeling but I enjoy that in a body butter. I have eczema and so far this hasn't irritated my sensitive skin. It has actually helped the eczema on my hands. Wish it wasn't so pricey:( ($36 dollars in Canada).
This is the best lotion.. wouldn't buy anything else. Its also healthy so you can feel good about what you put on your skin
Jasmine smells delicious. I purchased one for myself and another for my mother. It's hydrating for dry skin. Scent lingers, but is not overpowering.
Get a tube of this and it will last you for months. Don't waste your money on all those other drugstore lotions and body shop faux body butters. Korres jasmine is pure: pure jasmine off the vine scent, the living flower, if you will, and, the purest of ingredients. It's not sticky, not heavy, sinks right into the skin and after it's thoroughly rubbed in, gives off little whiffs of jasmine into the air. It will not sit on the skin, rather, dries to a nice smooth matte powdery-like feel on the skin. Korres body butter is what I like to call a skin primer for the body. Even when used on feet & heels, stockings will not snag or pull.Great on hands for ragged cuticles and will make hang nails virtually non-existent when used daily. Sure, it's pricier than the average bargain brand lotion, but given that, a little goes a long way. The scent is relaxing, calming, and, it makes a nice anchor for all your white floral scented perfumes because it will enhance them, not overpower or compete with the fragrance.Treat yourself. You owe it to yourself!
very moisturizing and has a wwooonderful scent to it. it does not get my skin drier but only enhances the moisture contents of my skin.
only cons is that it takes a while to rub in the lotion onto the skin.
I bought this product more for the scent than it's moisturizing properties. The packaging is cute and sanitary for a body butter. I'm not sure what the product normally retails for, but I picked it up at Winners for $6 CAD. I like the fact that it doesn't contain parabens or other harmful chemicals/preservatives. I did notice that it does get a little greasy on the hands, and takes a while to absorb - so I prefer to use it on drier areas such as legs, elbows, knees and feet. Overall, I find that it's a good product with a great scent and definitely exceeded the value of which I paid.
i absolutely love this body butter! not only does it have a great texture when applied, it also sinks in quickly and is not sticky. i've tried several of the korres body butters and i like this one the best because of the scent! it reminds me of my favorite drink, jasmine tea!
