After buying moisturizers that cost over $30 for 1 oz, I wanted to find one that is less expensive with more product. I saw this moisturizer and initially bought the 2 oz. tube to try and was so impressed, I bought the jar, which is a great price for 6 oz. The consistency is light, and you do not have to use much product on the face. I've been using this for about 3 weeks now and I …Read more

Jul/13/2012

I had been using Philosophy Purity which is alright but my face never felt clean enough. I read the excellent reviews of Korres' Milk Protein cleanser and decided to try it. I have used it for about 3 weeks now and it is by far the best cleanser I have tried to date. I only use a pea sized amount and it does the job each time. It is gentle and smells good - hard to describe the scent, kind …Read more

After using the old formula for the past year, I bought the new, reformulated version and have used it for the past week. The scent is stronger but it is not a bad scent (pleasant,actually) and it disappears once applied to the face. I have not noticed any other differences - it still feels the same on my face and performs the same. Since it doesn't break the budget and still works as well …Read more

After reading reviews on this foundation, and how it works better with yellow undertones (which I have), I finally decided to try this product in WRF3. It was frighteningly yellowy orange when putting it on for the first time, but it eventually changes into your skin color. The great thing is that it is buildable, so you can layer on until you're happy and not feel like you have layers of …Read more

I've been using this concealer for a week now and it's the best that I've used so far. It is creamy and goes on smoothly. I've used it with the Korres Wild Rose Foundation and with Lavera's liquid foundation and it works nicely with both. You must use primer for it to last all day - I use Korres' Vitamin E primer. As for dark circles, it slightly conceals under …Read more

I bought a 3 pack of the tangerine balm from Amazon. It has a slight medicine smell when you open the sphere, but the tangerine smell comes out more after you apply it on the lips. I love the tangerine scent! It is moisturizing as well. The packaging is cute but not very practical.

I am a fan of Lavera's cosmetics (makeup foundation, eye shadow in particular) and was very disappointed by their lipstick. The Berry Violet color is pretty but it's too dry by itself and you need a moisturizing lip balm as a base. The staying power is not good either - the color seems to dissolve in a half-hour! I later bought Korres' Mango Butter lipstick and what a difference …Read more

Oct/19/2011

I bought the 3 pack deal from Sephora and love the lipstick and this scrub. I don't have overly dry lips but this product seems to work great for exfoliation. Once or twice a month, I scrub the lips after a shower and put on some Korres guava lip butter afterwards. My lips are noticeably smoother the next morning. Since I only use it a couple of times a month, the product should last for …Read more

Oct/19/2011

I bought the three pack from Sephora (containing Fuchsia, Cinnamon, and the lip exfoliator) and wished I had tried this lipstick earlier! Definitely my favorite lipstick so far - moisturizes and the color stays on for quite some time. The fuchsia is a bit bright so I put a little bit on each lip to spread out. It also has slight sun protection with SPF 10. What I also love is the smart and …Read more

I'm the friend who got Maybelle hooked (see 4/14/11 review). I love this moisturizer - not heavy, not light, and doesn't have a weird smell. My skin drinks it up in the morning and it leaves it soft all day. Sephora had a great 2 pack deal earlier this year and I stocked up.
