First Impressions - Korres Wild Rose Brightening and Line Smoothing Serum

Hello Lovelies

If you read my recent first impressions post on the Eve Lom Cleanser you will know that I was contacted recently by a lovely lady from the Look Fantastic PR team regarding working with me, as a result the lady kindly sent me some samples to try and review on my blog, some samples were single use and others were multiple use and one was full size. I decided that I would use the single use samples to do some first impressions posts, I always enjoy reading first impressions posts as I feel first impressions are very important. 

One of the single use samples I received was the Korres Wild Rose Brightening And Line Smoothing Serum I have read a lot about Korres products but only ever tried one of their Mango Lip Butters which is an amazing product. Every year for our summer holidays we go to one of the Greek Islands and Korres is sold in almost every pharmacy and supermarket we go in and I always look at the products there and also in the airport on the way home, and then kick myself for not picking anything up. 

I was really excited when I saw the sample of the serum and couldn't wait to try it, I have very dry skin so serums are a must for me and this one has the added benefits of being line smoothing and brightening, I couldn't wait to see if the serum lived up to it's name. 

My sample of the serum*

I used the serum morning and night after cleansing and toning my face using my usual skin care, and I have to say I was blown away by this product, the texture wasn't runny as most serums I have tried have been, it was thicker but not at all balm like, it was still a runny, almost lotion type texture but slightly thicker.

The serum felt divine to apply, it was really lovely and made my skin feel amazing, it felt so soft and hydrated instantly, and it did look brighter too, the serum smells amazing which is really important to me, my medication seems to have affected my sense of smell and I cannot bare some scents but this had a subtle fruity scent to it but not over powering at all and it didn't linger.

The Korres Wild Rose Brightening And Line Smoothing Serum contains wild rose oil and is a concentrated serum which helps to add brightness and radiance to your skin. The serum is enriched with baobab tree polysaccharides and contains and active ingredient derived from wheat proteins which is clinically proven to reduce considerably the number, depth and length of wrinkles. The serum can be applied alone or before moisturiser and after cleansing. 

My First Impressions Of The Serum Are

My skin felt instantly hydrated
My skin felt smooth
The serum was lovely to apply
The serum sank into the skin nicely
My skin looked brighter with the first application
My skin looked radiant and glowing
My skin looked and felt amazing 
A little went a long way 

I absolutely loved this serum and even though I only used it twice I would definitely say I would purchase this product in a heartbeat, if I got results like that from only 2 uses can you imagine what my skin would look and feel like after a week or a month? I loved this product and on first impressions would go as far as to say, try it especially if you have dry, dehydrated or dull skin. I suffer from eczema and have very sensitive skin and my skin didn't react badly at all to this product. 

The Korres Wild Rose Brightening And Line Smoothing Serum is available here 

I hope you enjoyed my first impressions post of this product, I really enjoyed using the sample and would definitely purchase the full size product, have you tried the Korres serum or any of the Korres skin care? What were your thoughts? 

Thank you for reading, much love as always
