I am a big fan of Korres shower gels and have been using them for years already. This is why today I want to share with you my love for their Black Sugar shower gel.
It smells divine. I do love a shower, and, as corny as it sounds, but for me it is not just about cleansing but also about time of recharging. Insert some “body care is self care” cringe-worthy slogans here.
I hate having too many similar products at the same time, as I do not like clutter. However, I have to have a few shower/bath/body products at the same time to switch them depending on my mood.
I have to admit that I was reaching for this shower gel more often than any other ones I’ve got. If I had to describe it in one word – that’d be “intoxicating”. It’s a warm and sweet fragrance with the top notes of oriental lily, caramel and heliotrope, heart notes of rose, black sugar and brazilin rosewood and, finally, base notes of amber, vanilla bean and tonka bean. Black sugar is decadent and indulgent, it is a perfect aroma for AW months.
The only thing with
Spring/Summer is the perfect time to experiment with makeup, the prefect time to add a pop of colour to your look! And what better shade to try then aqua blue or turquoise, the shade that represents the sky and water?
You can wear aqua as you would wear a regular black or brown eye liner, or inside the lower waterline for an interesting accent.

I love a good soap and always like trying new ones. My latest purchase was this Korres Milk Soap, which turned out to be for stressed skin. I actually did not know that but that when I was buying it (now what was I looking at?)
It is described as “an exceptionally mild, creamy lather soap that leaves a velvety feel on the skin.” And that is exactly how I would describe it myself.
It is very gentle but at the same time leathers up nicely and leaves the skin clean, without drying it out. Since I have very dry skin, I still have to use a moisturizer afterwards, but you may not need to.
Milk Soap can be used on the face and body, as the brand suggests, and I
I am a huge fan of Clarins’ toners: I have already tried Clarins Extra-Comfort Toning Lotion for Dry and Sensitive, Clarins Toning Lotion with Camomile for Dry and Normal Skin and Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner.
And I really wanted to try the brand’s cleansers: Water Comfort One-Step Cleanser with Peach Essential Water and One-Step Facial Cleanser with Orange Extract.
I plan using them in the mornings when I am often in a rush, so picked up the first one this time and will get the other one next time. I will report back later but have big hopes for this product!
I also wanted to buy a new soap so got the Korres one with milk. The lady in the shop told me that it’s her personal favourite from the range, so hopefully it will not disappoint.
By the way, if you are looking for nice soaps, I personally really love Cowshed, those are brilliant.
I am really loving Korres body products and buy them regularly. So when I saw that this season the brand offers a Fig collection set – I had to get it. The value is £20.50 but it retails for £15 which makes it a good deal, in my opinion.
So you get:
- Korres Fig Showergel 250ml
- Korres Fig Body Butter 150ml
I haven’t tried Korres shower gels before for some reason, so it was a nice discovery for me. Fig Shower gel is mild but at the same time cleanses really well and does not dry out the skin. The scent is amazing, it stays on the skin for some time but is not overwhelming.
As for the body butter – I have been a fan for a long time already. This butter, which is
