Korres Natural Products 30% Discount

I've been on a beauty block lately. I've have'nt been excited about any beauty products. Well my favourite beauty blogger Musings of a Muse mentioned a 30% discount on Korres Natural products. She raved about some of their lip products and boby butters. That was good enough excuse to check out their website. Just use the promo code MUSE and you even get a free mini Fucshia Cherry Oil Lip Gloss free! Offer ends on 15th September 2009.

Incidently, Korres just arrived in Singapore. I read in our local fashion magazines that they are in the newly opened mall ION. I also read from fellow Cotters at CozyCot that prices in Singapore were high and it wasn't worth buying at the local store.

I meant to go there to check out the newly opened Sephora and so thought I would pop by the Korres shop to swatch some products and check it out for myself.

Reading through some beauty blogs and makeup reviews, these were some products that people mentioned were really nice.

Lip Butters

Ultimate lip treatment with intensely hydrating formulas, packed with a juicy pop of color • Shea Butter’s anti-inflammatory and potent moisturising benefits cushion the skin and help to restructure it • Rice Wax helps to seal in hydration, leaving the lips smooth all day

It comes in 7 pretty colours. These are quite pigmented, a cross between lipgloss and lip balm.

Jasmine: Light lavendar
Promegranate: Coral Pink
Quince: Bright Pink
Plum: Plum
Wild Rose: Rose Pink
Guava: Light gold
Mango: Bright Coral

I fell in love with Wild Rose which looked like a nice just bitten lips look and Mango. These cost SGD21. With the discount, you can get these for $7.50 USD.

Cherry Oil Lip Gloss

I'm crazy over lip glosses lately. The number of lip glosses I have has mushroomed almost overnight. I had to check them out.

Long-lasting, creamy, semi-sheer formulas in wearable and vibrant shades. Go natural with NEW naked shades! • Cherry Oil moisturizes lips, prolonging the wear and giving a high-shine, non-sticky finish • The natural active Jojoba Oil smoothes fine lines and deeply hydrates the lips • Potent antioxidant Vitamin C and E prevent free radical damage and repair the lips

There are altoghether 13 pretty shades. You can check them out here. I'm still in a summer mood for makeup so the standout colours for me were Orange and Coral. Orange is a sheer but true orange colour, no hints of pink. Coral is sheerer and lighter than orange but with added gold shimmer. These were selling for $35 SGD.

Body Butters

Scent: Tropical, sweet Feel: Luxurious, gourmet Luxurious, smoothing body butter, clinically proven to offer advanced moisturizing and antiaging action. • Guava Body Butter is enriched with Shea Butter to soften, moisturize & restructure the skin. • A proprietary blend of Sunflower, Almond & Avocado Oils restores skin’s elasticity & smoothness. • Quince extract acts as a soothing agent to heal and nourish stressed skin. • Little size is travel approved.

I bought the Little Body Butter in Guava 25 ml for $9.50 SGD to try out. This was the only scent they had in this size. I found the scent to be sweet and heavenly. The scent lingered on my body for quite a while. It took a little time for it to absorb into my body but once soaked in, my skin felt soft and smooth.

You can find the whole range of body butters here. The standout scent would be Quince. Many beauty reviewers have raved about ow heavenly it smells (fruity and spicy).

So these were some items I bought. Body Butter in Quince, Cherry Oil Lipgloss in Orange and Coral and the Lemon Lip Scrub. I was so tempted to buy more items. I'm very intrigued by the Zea Mays Powder Blush, Multi Vitamin Oil Free Setting Compact Powder and Manoi Oil Bronzing Powder. Another product worthy of mentioning is the Sunflower and Evening Primrose Shimmering Eyshadow that promises to blend smoothly and is pigmented.

So if you are in the mood to try something new, give Korres a go, with the wonderful discount now, it is a great excuse to pick up some items and experiment for yourself.

I can't wait for my products to arrive so I can give an in depth review.
