Regular readers will know that I am a huge fan of Korres - I have tried their skincare (reviews here & here), their lip balms (review here) and a lot of their body products, which have featured in various empties posts. They are mid-range products, pricewise, but with high end results. Their body products come in a variety of fragrance combinations - my favourites being Basil Lemon (which I love to layer with Jo Malone Lime, Basil & Mandarin perfume as they work so well together) and Bergamot Pear, which I find works really well with Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia perfume. Their products add some luxury to my every day life without a hefty price tag, which can only be a good thing!
Their latest release is the Lavender Blossom range, which consists of a shower gel and body milk. As with all of their other ranges, the scent is very authentic and natural, which I much prefer to a lot of other brands out there where the scent is very synthetic. The natural lavender scent has a very calming effect but there is also a citrusy twist to it, which is uplifting and the two scents work really well together.
The shower gel creates a nice lather but isn't at all drying on the skin and the body milk is very moisturising but not at all greasy so you can get dressed immediately after applying it. I love that it comes in a tube so that I can squeeze every last drop out (or cut it in two, if necessary!).
Korres products are cruelty free and free from parabens, mineral oil, silicones and lots of other skin-unfriendly, filler ingredients. I would love if the extended their (already extensive) line into candles because their scents are absolutely beautiful, so Korres, if you're reading - please consider this!
