Body & Soul Black Friday Giveaway: Korres 6 Piece Set!

Above & Below: Win this box of Korres products! See below for details.
Below: These cards are included in the box and give you a brief description of each product.
I have no intention of going out shopping today, so I thought it would be fun to do a giveaway! For those of you who are familiar with Korres, you already know what a fantastic brand this is. Korres is naturally formulated, and they carry a wide range of beauty products, including skin care, cosmetics and hair care, to name a few. There are usually coupon codes available right on their web site for a variety of free products and/or shipping, not to mention the fact that their products and packaging are perfect for gift giving. Their lip butters have been a longtime favorite of mine, and Korres was kind enough to send a box for me to sample as well. These are all full-sized products with a retail value of over $125.00. Even the sturdy box is nice! I'm using mine to store some of my nail care products in. Here's what's included in the giveaway box (click the product title for a direct link to additional descriptions on the site), along with my thoughts of each product:

Pomegranate Cleansing Wipes-I am finding these very useful as a makeup remover, especially on the nights I'm feeling too lazy to wash my face! They are very effective, smell terrific, and leave my face feeling clean and soft. They're oil-free and contain Vitamin E, as well as Pomegranate Extract. The properties in Pomegranate Extract also act as a pore minimizer.

Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizer-this is an nice, lightweight moisturizer that includes an SPF 6. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated throughout the day and with no greasy feeling. It contains Wild Rose Oil and Vitamin C, along with a host of other natural ingredients for skin brightening, fine line reduction and an overall healthy and radiant glow. This one is recommended for normal to dry skin.

Lip Butter in Jasmine-I love their lip butters! The contain Shea butter for moisture and rice wax to seal in the hydration. I've gone through countless pots of these over the years and they give my lips a hint of color and shine. I use them alone or over another shade to add protection and shine.

Silicone Free 99% Natural Face Primer-I don't normally use a face primer, but so far, this one is very impressive. It minimizes my pores and seems to fill in lines without feeling like I've spackled my face in the process. It seems to give my finished look a smoother appearance and assists in an almost flawless application of my mineral powder.

Materia Herba Toning Cleansing Foam-this is doing a great job thoroughly cleansing my face and leaving it feeling refreshed, without a feeling of tightness. I've noticed that my face doesn't get oily at all during the day, and it may be due to the Salicylic acids in this. It's packed with many natural and organic ingredients, including floral water and olive leaf. This particular type is recommended for all skin types.

Lash-Strengthening Mascara with ProVitamin B5 and Rice Bran-this mascara (in black) has ingredients that nourish your eyelashes, in addition to providing length, thickness and color. I haven't used it long enough to be able to tell you that I've noticed a difference in the health of my lashes, but it definitely is a nice, buildable mascara that applies evenly and without clumping. It wears well throughout the day without flaking or smudging.

If you check out their web site, you'll be able to see their vast range of products, along with ingredient lists. I am finding that their products are of excellent quality and I consider them quite indulgent! Their packaging is well-made and attractive, and many of the products contained in the giveaway come from various lines that they offer containing a multitude of other products available...in other words, if you like the Materia Herba facial cleanser, you might want to consider trying some other products in the Materia Herba line, such as the eye cream or moisturizer. If you sign up for their mailing list or join them here on Twitter, you'll receive additional specials and offers. They also have an International site which can be found here.

RULES: You must be a follower of some sort to enter. This can be through Twitter, Blog Lines, the Follower Box over on the right, and so on. You can become a follower if you aren't already, to take advantage of my giveaways. Leave your eMail below, and just for fun, mention if you've ever tried anything from the Korres line and any thoughts you had on it. I'll draw a random winner on Monday, November 30, so have your entries in by midnight Sunday, November 29. As always, International followers are welcomed.

    I haven't tried Korres yet and I've been dying to! I got a little sample of their suncreen face cream watermelon in the sun care kit that sephora put out earlier this year! I haven't gotten to it yet. Anyway, the lip butter, the face primer and moisturizer are all things I'd love to try! Thanks for the giveaway!

    I have not tired Korres, but I have thought about it a couple of times. Unfortunately there is no Korres products in my country, so that requires online shopping and I have not got here yet if considering Korres products.
    It would be more than nice to try and review these.
    Thank you!

  36. I tried the Korres primer after rave reviews from a few friends, and it's really amazing. I'd never used a primer before, but I can tell you I'll never be without this stuff again! It makes my skin look sooo smooth and normal for once (haha).

    Love the lip butters too, I've got a few but Plum is definitely the prettiest for winter.

  44. Hi,
    great giveaway. I do love korres, their yoghurt creme is awesome, body butter is probably the best winter moisturiser I´ve ever had and have also many lip balms. I wasn´t very fond of bitter almond body oil and honey face creme (good moisturiser but too strong scent..)

  82. Hi, I was wondering if anybody knows where I can get Korres essential oils. I bought a lavender and a geranium last year on vacation in Greece but it seems that they're only sold there. I live in the U.S. and I can't find them anywhere on the internet which seems really odd. The quality was amazing and I really want to try the others and restock on the lavender and geranium. Please help!

    ReplyDelete
  83. TwoPeasKitchen~I have used the Basil Essential Oil before and I received it in a swap. I loved it and the only place I've found it is out of this country online, but they do ship to the U.S. Here's the info, and there are a couple on this page I'm linking to, and lots more on the next page of that site:
    http://pharmathens.com/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=korres+essential+oil&search_in_description=1&x=0&y=0
    Hope that helps. I have no idea where to find it in the U.S., as I've never come up with anywhere searching either.

Feel free to comment or just say hello! While I don't always have time to respond to each comment, I do read and appreciate all of them.
