I was excited to receive Korres Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil and Castanea Arcadia Wrinkle Rewind Eye Cream to try out. If you have been following my blog you will know that I already love the Korres Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil.
KORRES was founded by George Korres as he was trying to get a grasp on natural homeopathic remedies. The company is based out of Athens, Greece and is growing super quickly. Everything they feature is organic and natural, they have over 400 certified organic products and are sold in over 30 countries. (In the USA you can purchase the products at Sephora, HSN, shopstyle, skinstore, amazon or other places online. In Canada KORRES products can be found at the Beauty Boutique in select Shopper’s Drug Mart Stores and The Shopping Channel)
“In the beginning, our goal was to use natural, herbal ingredients in an effective and safe way to make products we’re proud of for the people we love. Today, our goal remains the same. By always doing what we believe is right—avoiding harsh chemicals, relying on both basic and applied science, helping organic farmers, supporting local communities, protecting natural resources—we have accomplished something unique. By doing what we love, we have created products that people love.”

KORRES Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil
The brightening oil is infused with real rose petals – it looks really pretty and smells amazing. I love this oil. It does not make my skin oily at all. I find that it absorbs well into my skin. My skin feels super soft and supple. I have been using face oils for awhile now and have found that the face oils have actually helped balance out my oily skin.
A bit about the ingredients:
Powerful brightening oil infused with real rose petals, wild rose oil, and boosted with Super C to increase skin”s absorption of vitamin C by 1000%
Super C — A stabilized version of Vitamin C, this potent ingredient increases skin’s absorption of ascorbic acid* by 1,000%, giving the most dramatic brightening and antiaging results of any other product in the Wild Rose Collection
Wild Rose Oil — Contains nine times the Vitamin C found in orange juice and packed with vitamin A and essential fatty acids to repair fine lines and discoloration, revealing a noticeably more youthful complexion
Camapu Extract — Offers thermal anti-aging protection and boosts collagen synthesis to reduce lines and increase skin elasticity
Bisabolol and ginger root extract — A synergistic blend of soothing ingredients for skin defense against air pollutants, extreme temperatures, UV rays, and harsh cleansers
Nourishing oil blend — Squalene (from olive oil), apricot kernel oil, and sunflower seed oil combine to moisturize deep into skin, improving skin’s texture as they hydrate. Skin is left brightened and refined, with a more even, luminous tone and fewer visible wrinkles and fine lines The KORRES Wild Rose Vitamin C
KORRES Castanea Arcadia Wrinkle Rewind Eye Cream
Taken from the leaves of the Arcadian chestnut tree, Lupeol is a powerful natural ingredient that contains incredible antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and skin-regenerative properties. Identified in a four year study as one of the most active plant extracts, Lupeol is already renowned in the pharmaceutical world and the food supplement market, but has never before been used as an ingredient in cosmetics due to its insolubility, until
now. KORRES has achieved an innovative scientific breakthrough never before seen in beauty. The result: the new Castanea Arcadia Collection, a line of transformative antiaging creams that fight wrinkles and visible signs of aging.
Formulated with extracts of Rhodiola Rosea Root and Oats, this eye cream instantly lifts, smoothes and firms the delicate skin around the eye, all while reducing sagging and brightening skin tone. Argan Oil and Jojoba Oil are rich in essential nutrients that increase skin’s elasticity and improve its texture, while calming Chamomile Oil and Apricot Oil deliver a boost of beneficial antioxidants with nourishing properties.
This is a velvety, rich eye cream that applies easily. It provides great moisture to the delicate eye area while it improves the skins texture and elasticity. I love the ingredients of this eye cream – Chamomile oil is calming and Apricot oil delivers antioxidants that have nourishing properties. Only one pump is needed for both eyes, a little bit of this cream goes a long way.
Have you tried any KORRES products? I am looking forward to exploring other KORRES products.
