Korres Holiday 2012 - Radiance Revealed Wild Rose Brightening Duo

New for the holidays, the Korres Radiance Revealed Wild Rose Brightening Duo ($48) is a great little value set with two of Korres' amazing, skin brightening products. The limited-editon set comes with full sizes of the Wild Rose Daily Brightening and Refinishing Buff Cleanser and the Wild Rose and Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial. Formulated without Parabens, Pthalates and Sulfates, these products claim to exfoliate, brighten and transform dry, dull skin.

Wild Rose Daily Brightening and Refinishing Buff Cleanser 

An exfoliating, gentle buuffing cleanser in a creamy base. The exfoliatng particles are rather tiny, so it feels gentle even on dry, sensitive skin. Since the base is creamy, it doesn't strip skin of the natural oils and is a great way to prep skin prior to the Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial. The creamy cleanser doesn't lather very much, but manages to get rid of dull dry skin extremely well. It lives upto the brightening claim, leaving skin looking bright and extremely soft. The scent is a little strong, but in a very good, refreshing way. This one is something I would absolutely recommend if you tend to have dry, dull skin especially in the winter and want a good, not too harsh exfoliant that gets rid of dull skin and leaves you glowing!

Wild Rose and Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial

A perfect way to follow up after the Wild Rose Daily Brightening and Refinishing Buff Cleanser , the Sleeping Facial is a heavenly smelling night time moisturizer. The fragrance is rather strong and very luxurious. The non greasy texture sinks in pretty fast, but the smell does linger on for a bit. If you have a problem with strongly fragranced facial products, you might want to take a whiff beforehand. Since I don't use it everyday, I don't have much of a problem with the smell, but I do wish it was a tad mild. The cream is quite thick and rich, so a little goes a long way. I use it only about twice a week and love the way my skin looks in the morning. It looks more luminous, plump and extremely fresh. I have been using it for about 2-3 weeks now, so its too soon to talk about the other anti-aging benefits, but I will report back once I use it long enough to notice any long term effects.

Overall, the Radiance Revealed Wild Rose Brightening Duo is a fantastic way to try out a couple of really amazing skin care products from Korres. The Wild Rose and Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial alone retails at $48, which makes this set an incredible value. I absolutely love Korres' skin care products and as someone with dry skin, this is a nice little addition to my skincare routine that I can use any time of the year.

  1. Hmmm... I wanna try this one out since you have said that it is ideal for dry skin. I usually have dried out skin so I guess this could be the product that could help.
