KORRES Summertime Glowing Skincare Picks

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

During the summer I am far more interested in healthy glowing skin than makeup, and in fact I wear the most minimal makeup during the warm months of the year. I delight in using healthy skincare products to pamper my skin, and treat myself to as many at-home spa days as possible, but given that I work long hours at work, I often end up taking short cuts by using fuss-free products that get to work while I sleep, as is the case with two of the products that I am featuring here. My overriding concern during the summer is to protect and treat my skin. Therefore, in addition to slathering myself with high SPF sunscreens, I also apply lots of moisturizing and hydrating treatments from head to toe. Here are a few of my current favorite moisturizers for the face and body from KORRES.
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 ($48.00 for 1.35 oz from Korres, Dermstore, Macy's and Sephora): "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.

  • Wild Rose Oil: Evens skintone and repairs fine lines; moisturizes, heals, and softens skin while forming a protective layer to improve its texture.

KORRES Pure Greek Olive Blossom Body Milk ($14.26-$18.15 for 6.76 oz. from Beauty Expert): This lightweight and very fast absorbing moisturizer nourishes and hydrates the skin– leaving it soft, smooth, hydrated and luminous. It had a light and pleasant aroma that sits close to the skin, but that does fade after a few minutes.
