Like most ladies I love roses. There is something about the deep, intense and feminine sweetness of those roses I adore. When asked where should one put perfume? Coco Chanel famously said, “Wherever one wants to be kissed.” I feel the same way about skincare; I enjoy massaging fragranced oils into my skin. It’s such a mindful, loving and self-preserving ritual. Korres launched their Wild Rose Advanced Brightening & Nourishing Face Oil earlier this year. I was absolutely delighted when I unpackaged the product. The simple clear glass bottle with a pipette top, the clear oil with rose petals made it look very special. However, the real thrill was when I opened the bottle and put four drops into my palm. The fragrance was sublime and the texture so silky.
Korres’ Wild Rose Advanced Brightening & Nourishing Face Oil is the perfect complement to a beauty regime. I trialled it for one month and I was pleased with the results. I applied it during the day by putting it on before my moisturiser if I was going out and about or alone when I was indoors. On average I used it three times per week. The power of the oil comes from the orange-red seeds of the wild rose species with pink flowers which has a high concentration in vitamin C. The oil is also rich in omega-3, 6, 9 fatty acids and vitamin A. It promises to repair fine lines and skin colour disorders, while assisting in the uniform distribution of melanin.
I think this is one for brown beauties to have in stock, to keep our melanin on fleek. used the oil alongside Korres Black Pine Serum-Oil (review to come on that later) which formed part of my night beauty ritual. Together these two rich oils have taken away a few years from my skin. It looks younger, brighter, moisturised and supple with an even tone. It’s the ideal elixir for youthful looking skin. This oil is free from mineral oil, petrolatum, paraffin wax, silicones, parabens and other nasties. It’s suitable for all skin types and vegan friendly as well.
Another Coco Chanel quote I’m quite found of is, “Nature gives you the face you have at 20. Life shapes the face you have at 30. But at 50 you get the face you deserve.” We deserve to look fabulous whatever our age, so having a little help from Korres can’t be wrong.
Korres Wild Rose Advanced Brightening & Nourishing Face Oil is priced at £30.00.
