I think this stuff actually dries my hands out MORE than not using it at all. I love the texture. I love the scent. I love that it's "natural" and generally I have loved all of the Korres products I have tried. I'm serious about my hands though. I cannot stand to have dry skin. I have to wash my hands often during the day and nothing upsets me more than that tight, raw feeling I get when I don't have a good moisturizer. This butter feels good going on, and for the first 10 minutes it feels like it's going to be really moisturizing, but after about 15 minutes my hands feel even worse than they did before I put it on. I don't know how they screwed this one up, but they did.
I bought a trio of these Korres Body Butters in my local TJ Max and I was quite impressed by how well they moisturize. It came in quince, guava, and fig, and I find that the guava body butter was the most moisturizing of the three. The scent is really quite strong. It's a little musky, vanilla almost with a hint of fruity and grassy undertone. The scent wasn't my favourite but the moisturizing property was awesome. I have the most rough and dry elbows and this removed them within a week. I love that they're almost natural and free of any 'cones (silicones) because I am sensitive to most silicone moisturizers and cosmetics. I would really love to repurchase but the price is really out of my price range.
Best moisturizer ever for my extra dry skin. The scent reminds me of powder and its pretty subtle unlike most korres products that smell far too heavy for my taste.. It absorbs easily, it isn't sticky and leaves skin super smooth! Really good stuff without the dangerous parabens, dimethicone etc. Excellent product!
Smells great. Very moisturizing for dry skin. Good price. Already have a backup. Try it out!
I have purchased this lotion for years because it works. I have extremely dry skin from overwashing (work related), and this lotion does a great job of making it feel moisturized. As to whether it actually hydrates the skin beyond the upper layer, I dont know, but I do know when I use it daily, my skin is not as dry as when I use many other lotions. It is extremely thick and emollient, smells kind of melon like, and a small amount goes a long way. Yes it is expensive, around 30 bucks for 5 oz. but it comes in a great pump bottle at that size, and a little goes a long way. I use it daily and a bottle lasts me a couple months. I also have smaller containers I pump the lotion into to carry it in my purse since the small flip t op container they sell of it is even more expensive per ounce, but I go to the drug store and get a little travel flip top container to fill. This works great for me. The smell lasts for about 30 minutes after applying, but everyone that smells it asks to try it and loves it. It is not the most moisturizing thing I have ever used, but it is close, and my sensitive skin has absolutely no issues with it. Sephora has it on sale sometimes in a set. Recently they had the 5 oz bottle for less than 20.00. I first tried it as a free deluxe sample a couple years ago so they may also still offer that sometimes.
my skin gets irritated and itchy pretty easily and this stuff seems to do a good job of moisturizing. it's a bit oilier feeling than some of my other moisturizers. the biggest pro this product has is a superficial one... it smells AMAZING. i can't stop smelling it. despite the fact that it is a good moisturizer and smells great, it is just too expensive to repurchase. 30 dollars for 8 ounces is a joke. i'll have to stick with my less glamorous, cheaper lotions.
Though I absolutely love the scent of this lotion, I loathe the fact that its too greasy for my skin. I think maybe it will be ideal for extremely dry skin but too "buttery" for my taste.
This is the best body butter I have ever tried. Love the pump bottle and the scent is just amazing. Love it! The formula is way better than the body butter I tried from Kings & Queens (which I understand is also Korres?). Anyhow, the formula is perfect. Not too thin nor too thick which is way it spreads easily and absorbs quickly. It is very moisturizing and the moisturizing effect is long-lasting.
The scent is just divine and long-lasting. I would definitely repurchase even though the price is pretty hefty. I will splurge on this once in a while when I need a little luxury in my life. I higly recommend this body butter cause it's awesome!
I've tried the Guava and Jasmine scents and although the Jasmine smells better to me somehow the Guava formulation absorbs better. I've noticed sometimes this happens with lotions with different scents, one works better than the other scents. I recently returned the Jasmine scent to Sephora and exchanged it for the Guava. This lotion spreads easily, absorbs quickly, is lightly scented, keeps me moisturized all day without feeling greasy at all. I hate body lotions that go on thick and feel like they just sit on your skin. Definitely one of the best body moisturizers I've tried but the price tag is pretty steep at $29.
i got the bottle when it was on sale for 9$ so i am very happy with the price for the product.
i rarely use body lotion, but this one is my fav. maybe its me but when i push the top down the lotion comes out and ends up on the hand thats still holding the top down ???
will def by this again.
and the scent is awesome
