Happy Birthday Korres!

Greece might be bankrupt (only a sequel to Mamma Mia! can save it now) but it’s good to know what at least Greek skincare brand Korres is in fine fettle. In fact, the brand, created by George Korres in Athens and characterised by its use of certified organic ingredients,  has just turned 15.

If you’ve never come across it before make sure you check it out. I especially love the soaps (see this previous post), an the Basil Lemon Shower Gel and the Pomegranate Cleansing Wipes (both brand best sellers). The fragrances are fab too, especially the Saffron, Amber and Cardamon one, which is a snip at under  £25.

Anyway,  if you fancy helping the Greek bail-out why not have a look at the range? Korres is available to buy online from www.nivenandjoshua.com

Korres launch new soap collection. The Grooming Guru is a happy man.

Okay, okay so by now you know I’m something of a soap junkie (I don’t know why I don’t just set up a special category on this blog for ‘Soap News’!) so forgive me but when I opened this little package this morning I couldn’t have been more in my element.

What you’re looking at is the new gentle-cleansing soap collection from Korres, one of my favourite ‘cult’ beauty and grooming brands. Each one is made from 95.5%- 99.3% natural ingredients, is glycerine-based and is free from nasty chemicals.

What’s more, none of them honk to high heaven. Instead, each has a fantastically delicate, clean aroma based on the active ingredient it contains (choose between Pomegrante, Wheat, Milk and, my own personal favourite, Chamomile). Anyway, the upshot is that bathtime just became… funtime!

Korres soaps are available online from www.nivenandjoshua.co.uk
