KORRES Wild Rose Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial | Review

 Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

I love using nighttime skincare treatments, and I am partial to products that are filled with actives that work hard while I sleep. Since skin cell regeneration occurs more rapidly at night while we sleep, it is the optimal time to use actives that enhance this natural process. This is precisely why I was interested in testing the KORRES Wild Rose Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial, "an overnight facial-in-a-jar" that claims to be "more than a mask, more than a night cream." This cream, which is formulated for all skin types, contains a proprietary blend of ingredients including brightening agents that even skin tone, lighten dark spots (hyperpigmentation), restore luminosity and improve firmness.

This mask can be used alone as a night cream, or it can be used in conjunction with your favorite serums and creams. I like to use it alone, but if you want to use it with your other nighttime products, then be sure to use it after your serum and cream as your final step. It has a delightful lightweight whipped texture that melts into the skin, but it is concentrated– so I recommend taking a less-is-more approach. I would be remiss if I did not tell you that it has a delectable, light rose aroma, but it does fade soon upon application. One immediately notices a surge of moisture, and that skin feels comfortable, but the real benefits are seen the following morning when you awaken to bright and luminous skin. There is a pronounced clarity and radiance that is evident after only a single use, but regular use over a sustained period of time results in evening skin tone and the lightening of hyperpigmentation.

According to KORRES,

This overnight Wild Rose facial-in-a-jar is a breakthrough in beauty sleep. More than a mask, more than a night cream, it contains a generous dose of wild rose oil, boosted with super C for powerful brightening and antiaging. At the same time, imperata cylindrica extract time releases moisture throughout the night for continuous hydration. This product's weightless, whipped texture melts instantly into skin and works while you sleep to re-texturize and address visible signs of premature aging. Day after day, week after week, uneven tone and dark spots will continuously improve. In as little as 14 days you'll see skin that's brighter, more even-toned, and exceptionally radiant.

Key Ingredients & Their Attributes:
  • Wild Rose Oil: Evens skintone and repairs fine lines; moisturizes, heals, and softens skin while forming a protective layer to improve its texture.
  • Super C: A stabilized fat soluble vitamin C with 10 times higher vitamin C absorption for powerful brightening, natural collagen synthesis, and antioxidant protection.
  • Imperata Cylindrica Root Extract: Provides continuous moisturization by regulating the moisture equilibrium of the skin.

  1. Once I get caught up with my skincare stash, I would love to try the Korres Wild Rose skincare products. I have tested them at Sephora and they are truly lovely. The Brightening Sleeping Facial will be the first one, I think.

    1. It's definitely worth trying to find it to give it a try. I know that you are sensitive to rose, so this is a good way to determine if it might work for you. BTW, Ana is back at the BH BNY store, so she can help you with the LOVE yoURSELF Bag Event!

  5. The only "overnight facial" I've tried is Ren, which I loved. Sadly, I haven't tried much from Korres apart from lip butters, a concealer, and shower gels. This one sounds so luxurious and pampering.
