Wild Rose

Hey everyone!

I was lucky enough to attend an amazing event of beautydiaries blog a few days ago. It was held on the Korres offices here in Athens, which made me super happy, because I may have a small obsession with Korres products. The event was great and I got some products back with me that I hadn't yet tried out until then.

Korres makes these sets of mini products, each one is for a certain age and skin type. I chose the Wild Rose one, just because my skin is dry and I love roses! Also, Argyro who was on that event that day, told me she had bought this particular set a while ago and was extremely satisfied with the products' performance.

The 4 products come in a deep red tin box, which in my opinion looks really sleek. As I opened the box, I was totally amazed by the scent. It was overpowering and took me by surprise. I'm telling you, I keep these products in the box and once a day I open it just to take a sniff. Yes, I'm THAT crazy. Moving on.

Note: I have used only the 3 products of the 4. I haven't used the moisturiser, I'm trying to use up my LRP one before doing so.

The set contains a moisturiser with SPF6, an instant bightening mask, a brightening serum and a cleansing milk. Each product comes in a 16ml plastic tube (yay for germ-free containers). Everything has a distinct rose scent to it and like most of Korres products, they are paraben and harsh chemicals free.

I used the mask once this week and I really liked it. It gave my skin a glow, which is somewhat hard to achieve when you've got dry skin.

The cleansing milk wasn't that special, yet it took everything off. I use cleansing milks for taking my face makeup off anyway, but I haven't found any major differences to certain brands. Even though this is a  "regular" one, I think I'm going to purchase the full sized one, because I like the scent so much!

The serum was the best thing in this set. Argyro had told me she's been using the mini one for months and it's still half full. You need a tiny bit to apply to the whole face, it seems I haven't used anything at all by seeing the tube! It's very moisturising, so much that some days I only used this and I didn't feel the need to use any moisturiser (that's why my LRP is yet to be used up, ha!)

Also, I'm definately going to take some of these minis to trips with me, they are so convenient to use and store.

Have you used any of the mini sized Korres products sets?


  1. I am using the wild rose brightening & line smoothing serum since a long time now (I am already on my 3rd fullsized bottle). I love it and I want to try some more things from this line

  2. Αυτά τα σετάκια του Κορρέ είναι τέλεια! Γενικά μ'αρέσουν πολύ οι μίνι συσκευασίες, με τις οποίες σου δίνεται η ευκαιρία να δοκιμάσεις πολλά προιόντα πριν αγοράσεις το κανονικό μέγεθος!

  3. I love Korres, but I have used only some of their full sized products. I really have to try some of the mini sets.

  4. Τι μου θύμισες!!! Λοιπόν σε ένα ταξίδι μου στο Μιλάνο στο ξενοδοχείο είχε προϊόντα Korres ως Guest Toiletries κάποια με κέδρο στις μίνι συσκευασίες και είχα ενθουσιαστεί!!!Όταν είδα πως υπήρχαν όλα τα προϊόντα korres σε mini size στο gift shop είχα αγοράσει διάφορα τα οποία με είχαν βολέψει πολύ στα επόμενα ταξίδια μου!!!Συμφωνώ πως είναι πολύ εξυπηρετικά αμέσως μετά τα δείγματα για να αποφασίσεις αν ένα προϊόν σου ταιριάζει ή όχι!!! ΧΧΧ

  5. Το serum θέλω διακαώς να το δοκιμάσω! Το κανονικό μέγεθος όμως έχει λίγο τσιμπημένη τιμή οπότε ίσως να πάρω αυτό το σετάκι, να δοκιμάσω και τα άλλα προϊόντα με την ευκαιρία :)

  6. i love korres!!! lucky you to goto their HQ for the events!!!
    great post, i wonder how's wild rose smells like :-)

  7. OMG!!!!
    Beautiful post and so jealous too lol.

  8. Το έχω δοκιμάσει κι εγώ. Το Serum είναι τέλειο, όπως και η μάσκα. Συμφωνώ πως βολεύουν έτσι ώστε να πάρεις το προϊόν -αν σου άρεσε- στο κανονικό μέγεθος.

  9. Ανυπομονω να τα δοκιμασω..
