KORRES – A shower gel that stands out from the crowd.


I never thought that I would be reviewing a shower gel as there isn’t much to talk or to get excited about but KORRES is a brand that has been on my radar for a while and that I was yet to try. When walking past the toiletries aisle of my local waitrose I spotted that Korres shower gel was on offer for buy one get one free… hurray! I had to pick it up.

Korres is an organic skincare range that originates from the oldest homeopatic pharmacy in Athens, Greece.

Korres claims that the shower gel is 90.4% Natural Content, with no mineral oils, no petrolatum/paraffin wax, no silicones, no parabens, no propylene glycol, no ethanolamines, no PEG, no ALES, no synthetic dye, no phthalates, no polycylic musks, Ph- neutral, no alchohol, no retinol, no animal by products and not tested on animals. It contains wheat and aloe vera. I’m sold!

I’m not one for all natural products when it comes to skin care or makeup but on certain products including shower gels, if there is no need for it I like to avoid them as much as possible.

I got the Fig and the Mango ones and – WOW the smell of both is divine, they’re so different but both soooo nice, very fresh and subtle not too overbearing sweet at all as it often happens with fruity type fragrances. I really like the packaging too it looks sleek and elegant in my bathroom. After a shower my skin feels clean and moisturized. Korres shower gel it’s a definite repurchase for me and I’m now very intrigued to try other products from Korres.

You can get it from waitrose. Feel Unique also have it on a buy one get one free offer.

Have you tried any Korres products?

      It’s worth trying it if it’s still on buy one get one free.
