Korres, Greek-Inspired Skincare, Highlighted in InStyle

September 22, 2021

NEW YORK – Korres, the Greek skincare brand was highlighted in InStyle magazine for its wonderful products. InStyle’s Amanda Richards wrote, “when it comes to skincare, Korres always, always hits the mark. In other words: It's the one skincare brand I still get excited about, and its latest launch is one of the best yet.”

To give a sense of the quality of Korres skincare products, Richards noted that she tests 10 products a month for a total of 120 products every year.

“For those unfamiliar, Korres is Greek-inspired skincare that contains ingredients ubiquitous and native to the country,” Richards writes, adding that “the brand harvests plants and flowers that have grown in Greece for thousands of years, formulating them into a line of luxe cleansers, serums, creams, and more. Every Korres product feels like an indulgent experience — I like to think of them as courses on a pre fixe self-care menu.”

“Its latest launch, the Santorini Grape Velvet Skin Drink, is a lightweight serum that smooths textured skin, adds a tremendous amount of hydration, and blurs imperfections (almost like a primer),” Richards continues, noting that “the serum contains resveratrol, an antioxidant found in grapes (and naturally, red wine), that can help improve your overall skin tone and complexion.”

“It smells amazing, blends into the skin in seconds, and leaves it velvety-soft and glowy,” Richards writes, adding that her skin was “so glowy, in fact, that on a recent Zoom call, a friend told me I looked like ‘an angel shining down from heaven.’”

“Of course, I can't give the Santorini Grape Velvet Skin Drink all the credit — I use it in tandem with a few other Korres products, and my skin has never looked better,” Richards noted, pointing out that “I wash my face with the Greek Yoghurt Foaming Cream Cleanser (gets your skin super clean without stripping it), apply the Greek Yoghurt Probiotic Superdose Face Mask (which I keep in the fridge and it feels absolutely amazing), do a little damage control with the Black Pine 3D Eye Lift Super-Serum (applies like a dream), and top it all off with the Santorini Grape serum.”

Richards concluded that “there are just not a lot of beauty brands and products I get excited about anymore (after all, when you test hundreds, they tend to lose their novelty)… but Korres is one brand I'm always stoked to try, and the Santorini Grape Velvet Skin Drink (like basically everything else they make) didn't disappoint.”
