korres wild rose vitamin c

anonymous asked:

Since youre a sugar baby and you obviously take great pride in your appearance, could you please make a list of any beauty tips and products you use? Like basically your routine for stuff like hair, skin, etc?

of couuurse. just gonna reply to your ask with the tips, instead of making a post.

hair - i wash my hair every 2-3 days, using tresemme naturals. once a week, i deep condition with macadamia oil deep repair mask. if i have time, i’ll skip the macadamia mask and make my own deep conditioner (2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. heat it up in a pan, put it in your hair while it’s still hot. throw your hair in a bun, wash it out after 30 minutes). i try not to use any heat on my hair, so i usually just towel dry my hair and put on sebastian’s potion 9, it makes my hair wavy/curly, soft, and seriously smells SO good.

face - i wash my face every day and night using purity by philosophy, after that i moisturize with hope in a jar by philosophy. i also own a clarisonic mia 2, which i use twice a week. i use a face mask once a week (usually when i’m deep conditioning my hair), it’s called glamglow super mud. and if i feel my skin is getting kind of dull, i’ll use korres wild rose and vitamin c sleeping facial.

side note - i’m sure we all know this, but seriously, don’t sleep in your makeup. remove it after the day is done, your skin will thank you.

body - soap & glory products everywhere. i’m addicted, they’re seriously so amazing. i use their flake away body scrub and slather on the righteous body butter after a shower, and i ALWAYS get compliments when i go out.

nails/feet - one of the first things i notice about someone is their hands/nails. like, i’m gonna think you’re a gross ass person if i can see dirt under your fingernails or if your nail polished is all fucked up and chipped lol. i’m sure we all know how to clip our nails, paint them, get em done, whatever. so i’m just gonna skip that. i exfoliate my hands and feet using the body scrub i mentioned earlier, as well as using the body butter on them. before i go to bed, i use bliss’ high intensity hand cream and cuccio cuticle oil (i’ve only used the pomegranate one so far, but it smells amazing). if for whatever reason you don’t have time to get a pedicure, i definitely recommend getting an amope perfect pedicure. 

i have no idea where to categorize this product, but if you want longer lashes, try out babe lash serum. this shit is my go to product.

if you have any question or want to know any other products i use, just message me.

Updated Skin Care

Invest in a toner, moisturizer and a facial scrub. What works for me, may not work for you. You might go through some trail and error before finding something that works for your skin type - dry, normal, oily. I have a normal to dry skin type.

FACE:
Remove make-up w/ Clean & Clear make-up wipes
Tone face w/ Fresh Toner - Garnier
Moisturize w/ Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial

Twice a week I will use my Clarisonic Mia 2 with Purity One Step Facial Cleanser - Philosphy (this a pretty expensive duo, but it’s life changing, haha.)

Wash your face morning + night. Don’t sleep in your make-up. Drink plenty of water - Take a multivitamin. Eat fresh fruit and veggies (blueberries and dark greens)

BODY:
Scrub: The Body Shop - Cocoa Butter Body Shop
Lotion: LUSH - Sympathy For The Skin

I use and do these things religiously.  I generally have okay skin but these products definitely add a nice silky glow.

CHARACTER STUDY: LENA KORRES

The cofounder explains why the brand is still coming up roses 20 years later.

While most of us like to put a bouquet of roses in a glass vase, Lena Korres—the cofounder of her eponymous brand—prefers to see the flower through a microscope. She’s analyzed the mighty skin-improving benefits behind the bloom for two decades, and is continuing to expand on its famous Wild Rose collection that originally lured us in. To celebrate the brand’s 20th anniversary, the line has expanded with a new Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil. The Sephora Glossy talked with Korres about the sweet, sweet benefits of roses and how the brand got its start. JESSICA VELEZ

How did you get your start in skincare?

“After completing my studies in business and chemical engineering, I moved on to work at Korres, which was born out of Athens’s first-ever homeopathic pharmacy. I was actually its first employee and was drawn by George Korres’s early vision. As the pharmacist—and owner of the Korres pharmacy—he mixed natural ingredients to create herbal preparations, remedies, and eventually cosmetic products. The passion and respect for natural ingredients as well as the deep knowledge of their properties was inspiring and fascinating. I wanted to be part of it literally from day one.”
 

We know that wild rose was the first Korres ingredient. What are some of its benefits?

“Wild rose, a Korres trademark ingredient and a synonym of the Greek skincare brand’s history, is the main active of the first-ever Korres cosmetic product. Wild rose fruit is noted for its high vitamin C level that demonstrates significant repairing action on pigmentation disorders and fine lines. Furthermore, wild rose oil, rich in linoleic and linolenic acid, offers significant moisturizing, healing, and softening properties. At the same time, it forms a protective film on the skin that helps with cell regeneration.

Can you tell us what you love about your Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil?

“The story behind it. This year, Korres is celebrating its 20th anniversary with the launch of the Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil, infused with real rose petals. We have reinvented our first apothecary beauty product, the wild rose oil, to honor the original precious extract. Its formula is boosted with super C to increase skin’s absorption of vitamin C by up to 1,000 percent. The result is an even skintone and smooth, younger-looking skin.”

How does it stand out or complement the other products in your Wild Rose collection?

“The Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil is the latest addition to the Wild Rose line, with the highest concentration of vitamin C. Its unique brightening system is boosted with the wild rose oil, which is particularly high in vitamin C content—nine times higher than that of an orange juice—to deliver significant repairing action on fine lines and pigmentation disorders while improving the overall texture of the epidermis.”

Hi! What is a lightening/whitening mask you recommend? I have some acne scars that I would like to get rid of! Thank you for your help! :)

My current favorite is the Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial!

It’s basically just a night time moisturizer but my acne scars faded literally within days when used every night. It took about 2 weeks for a really noticeable difference but I was really, really impressed. 

I also really like Mario Badescu’s Whitening Mask, $24 at Nordstrom and Ulta!

You can also make your own with honey and lemon juice! The acidity in the lemon juice will gently exfoliate and brighten the skin. Honey is purifying and anti inflammatory which will help clear pores and treat acne :)

Thanks to those big, international soccer games that will be happening for the next infinity weeks, we here at The Sephora Glossy have been thinking about how we get to spend our days immersed in a world of beauty—literally. Sitting on our shelves are premiere products from all four corners of the globe. Today, we’re digging into the history of some of our most cosmopolitan brands. BECKY PEDERSON

SOUTH KOREA
Dr. Jart+
BB creams have been lauded as the great skin savior for decades now, and Dr. Jart’s cosmeceutical line can take partial credit for that. With his elite team of dermatologists, he formulates each product with scientifically certified ingredients. Where to start? The Black Label Detox BB Beauty Balm is the company’s bestseller, and it addresses every major skin-care need you can think of.

AUSTRALIA
BECCA
Hailing from Perth, makeup artist Rebecca Morrice Williams was unimpressed with all the foundations available. So, being an enterprising ingenue, she developed her own range of complexion-enhancing products, like the famous Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Powder.

GREECE
Korres
Natural active ingredients are the stars of this brand. It all started in Greece’s oldest homeopathic pharmacy in Athens with a pharmacist and his chemist wife. Led by a team of real-life plant hunters, they source herbs and flora from local organic farmers to create award-winning formulas like those found in their Wild Rose masks, cleansers, and creams.

JAPAN
Shiseido
Fun fact: When Shiseido was established in 1872, it doubled as a restaurant business and is credited with introducing ice cream to Japan. The business no longer dabbles in dairy comestibles, but they still sell Eudermine, the world’s first—and oldest—softening lotion.

NETHERLANDS
Viktor & Rolf
This Amsterdam designer duo is world-renowned for its surreal, conceptual fashion house, founded in the early ‘90s. In 2005, they partnered with L’Oréal to develop their now-iconic Flowerbomb fragrance, which they’ve spun off into several equally powerful, limited edition perfumes.

SPAIN
Desigual
Founded in Ibiza, a Spanish island you’ve definitely heard of if you like electronic music and all-night parties, this streetwear company is known for its use of crazy colors. It should come as no surprise that their fragrances, with simply stated names like Fun, are just as flamboyant as their clothing line.

UNITED STATES
Elizabeth and James
There’s nothing more American than loving Mary-Kate and Ashley! The fashion moguls added sophisticated fragrances to their arsenal this year with Elizabeth and James Nirvana Black and Elizabeth and James Nirvana White, sold exclusively at Sephora.

BELGIUM
Maison Martin Margiela
Though he leads an intensely private life, with only one known picture of him floating around the annals of cyberspace, Maison Martin Margiela is a big name in fashion. His ‘REPLICA’ fragrances, inspired by his couture collection of the same name, earned instant icon status thanks in part to their expert packaging.

FRANCE
MAKE UP FOR EVER
Founder and creative director Dany Sanz is an industry mentor with perhaps the most unusual resume around. A classically trained fine artist, she once taught embalmers how to effectively apply foundation—by using an actual corpse as her canvas. Her HD MicroFinish Powder is regarded as one of the best finishing powders in the business.

ENGLAND
nails inc.
Nails inc. is a veritable beauty empire in the UK, operating more than 60 high-end nail bars in Europe. Their eye-popping polish colors dominate the runways, the pages of glossy magazines, and the tips of more A-list celebrities than you can count. This season is all about the Gel Effect polishes, which feature a range of electric brights and soft pastels.

GERMANY
Escada
Few brands are as extolled by European royalty as Escada. Launched in Munich in the late ’70s, the fashion house quickly expanded internationally. Their clothing collections inspired a line of luxurious and feminine scents. Especially Escada is a fan favorite, with its pear, rose, and musky notes.

ITALY
Acqua Di Parma
As a response to the heavy scents that were popular at the time, in 1916, master perfumers developed a fresh, modern citrus cologne in a small laboratory in Parma. The revolutionary scent was met with wide success. The company developed a larger product line and eventually moved to Milan, but Colonia, the scent that started it all, remains a cult classic.

Hiiiii there:))) Well I'm getting older and want to prevent wrinkles as long as I can. So far I just remove my makeup put some Loreal Youth Code dark spot correcting serum (trying to get rid of acne marks) and moisturizer. I feel like a should add an eye cream, any recommendations? Thank you^-^

For anti aging a great skin care regimen would have a serumnight cream and/or an eye cream. You don’t need all these skin care products of course, but having one, two or all would be ideal :)

For your 20’s and early 30’s a rich face cream and eye cream would be fine. Exfoliating is important at any age for smooth, flawless skin. Check out my post all about exfoliating here. I’d suggest adding an anti aging serum later on into your skin care routine!

Seems like you already use a moisturizer but If you aren’t already I’d suggest using a thick, cream like moisturizer in the night time! Sometimes a more light weight moisturizer won’t give your skin all the moisture it needs. The more hydrated your skin is, the less likely your skin will loose elasticity and form wrinkles. A more brightening face cream would be best to keep your skin looking young and fresh!

 Try face creams like

  • St Ives Timeless Skin Collagen Elastin Facial Moisturizer ($6)
  • Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Sleeping Facial ($42)
  • Origins High Potency Night A Mins Mineral Enriched Renewal Cream ($39)

Since you’re still pretty young you don’t need an eye cream thats too intense with potent ingredients and wrinkle fighting properties. A moisturizing, brightening eye cream would be best to keep the under eye area cared for to prevent wrinkles but not necessarily fighting them just yet.

Some eye creams i’d recommend are 

  • Tarte Maracuja C Brightener Eye Treatment ($38)
  • Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream ($30)
  • Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream ($30)
