Move over Bliss body butter, I think I have just discovered a new love. A couple weeks ago, Korres’ Body Butter in Basil Lemon landed on my doorstep and I have been smitten ever since. Not only is the texture rich and luxurious, but it literally melts into your skin, leaving it feel sooo nourished and moisturized.
I find that it’s not always easy to get a body butter formula done right. Many body butters feel greasy and they don’t actually sink into your skin – which I think, defeats the purpose of moisturizing altogether. Korres’ body butters are loaded with shea butter and doesn’t contain parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, petrochemicals, pthalates, GMOs or Triclosan.
I have yet to try the other scents, but I can attest that the Basil Lemon is simply divine! The fragrance is fresh and natural-smelling. It reminds me of something I would get from a high-end apothecary – it’s sophisticated yet simple. They also use high-performance natural extracts with proven efficacy.
Not familiar with Korres? It’s actually one of my favourite natural skincare brands that started out as a homeopathic pharmacy in Athens, Greece.
I love how they are driven as much by science as they are by design – two disciplines that are very near and dear to my heart! Check out this video…
If you are still scratching your head for a great stocking stuffer, definitely drop by Sephora and check out the Korres body butters – I promise you won’t be disappointed. Retails for $29 each. Happy shopping, Beauty Nerds!
