What evokes Fall more than pomegranates? Winter fruits abound year round but only two make you think of autumn and all it consists of. Pomegranate and pumpkin pictures immediately take your mind and taste buds directly into the cool, brisk weather and holidays of fall.
KORRES knows we love the sweet and pungent taste and smell of pomegranate so they’ve created a variety of products containing this wonderful ingredient. I was sent two to test and that only makes me want to try others. The question is why pomegranate as an ingredient? Among other things it offers us antioxidant protection and that’s a good place to start.
KORRES Pomegranate Cleansing & Make-Up Removing Wipes are a wonderful way to get the antioxidant protection of pomegranate as well as the benefits of tightening the appearance of pores while it tones and refreshes your skin. There are 25 premoistened sheets in the package. This is specified for oily to combination skin yet it works for all skintypes. My skin is oily to dry and they work well for me. The fragrance isn’t artificial yet it’s noticeable. With some fragranced wipes I can’t use them at night but I have no problem with these.
The wipes also contain Vitamin E which helps their moisturizing property. My skin feels soft and well cleansed when using these. They are especially refreshing at the end of the day when I just want to wipe away all the makeup sitting on my skin before I sit down for TV time.
KORRES LIP BUTTER in Pomegranate is one of my favorites that I’ve used from Korres. This lip butter melts on my lips leaving a soft sheer coral tint. It’s perfect for bumming around the house or for doing my daily chores. I love the balm in this since it’s moisturizing and lasts well. “Korres Lip Butters are formulated with natural oils and extracts to soothe and condition lips. Shea butter and rice wax provide lasting hydration and softness.”
KORRES changes their Lip Butters with different tastes. Right now both Wild Rose and Pomegranate are available so it’s best to get ahold of this before it changes again. The color is perfect for those of us who like a light look.
I’d love to find this $12 Lip Butter in my Christmas stocking. It’s going to suit every woman you know.
Other Pomegranate items exist too. One that fascinates me is the Pomegranate Soap ($10.50) which is a mild glycerin soap good for face and body. “Remove skin impurities effectively with this mild, glycerin-based soap. Pomegranate extract, with its antiseptic and toning properties, helps tighten the pores and tone the skin—making this the perfect cleansing solution for oily, congested skin.” This soap is said to be 95.9% natural.
You can’t go wrong with KORRES products since they are cruelty free and use natural ingredients. Most of their products can be used by vegetarians and vegans (the Pomegranate Lip Butter) and they don’t contain the no-nos like Petrolatum, Mineral Oil, Silicones, Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Ethanolamines, etc. Do yourself a favor and add KORRES Pomegranate to your shopping list. With Sephora’s VIB sale going on now you’ll get 20% which makes this even sweeter. — Marcia
