KORRES Quercetin & Oak Collection

Hi ladies! After trying, falling in love and sadly using up both KORRES Quercetin & Oak Antiageing & Antiwrinkle Night Cream and Eye Cream, I was very excited to be given the opportunity to try a few other products from this collection!

I had never used something like the Instant Wrinkle Filler ($57.00) before so I was very curious about it, and I must say I am quite impressed! This product is a targeted treatment that visibly smooths fine lines and deep wrinkles for more youthful looking skin. Altough I am not struggling with deep wrinkles yet, I have some annoying expression lines around my eyes and mouth, but this filler does an amazing job at smoothing them, leaving my skin super soft! The precision tip is perfectly designed to apply this antiaging treatment directly to problem areas and the formula quickly absorbs for comfortable, all-day wear alone or under makeup.

Since I am struggling with very dry skin due to eczema, a serum is an essential to me, and I actually really like the Antiwrinkle & Firming Face Serum ($69.00), which is claimed to visibly improve skin texture while rejuvenating dull, aging skin. Did you know that quercetin and oak is the first natural, clinically proven alternative to retinol? An ultra-powerful antioxidant derived from the oak tree, it works fast to help minimize the signs of aging and keep skin looking younger. This serum also contains myrtle extract to improve skin elasticity, mourera fluviatilis to help maintain the skin's water levels, hyaluronic acid to help skin retain moisture and appear smoother, and hexapeptide to improve firmness. I really like how fast this product is absorbed into the skin, so that I can quickly follow with my day cream.

The Antiageing & Antiwrinkle Day Cream With Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 15 ($59.00) is probably one of the most moisturizing day cream I have tried! It reduces the appearance of aging while improving skin softness, smoothness, and firmness, and protecting skin with broad spectrum SPF 15. This cream also contains mourera fluviatilis extract which offers moisture binding properties to help maintain the skin's water levels while shea butter, in combination with sweet almond and hazelnut oils, nourishes and helps skin keep in moisture. I really use the thiniest quantity of product with each application but I have to make sure to really massage it in if I don't want to be left with random white patches on my face. I love how my skin imediately feels soothed, soft and smooth, and I don't feel the need to re-apply thorough the day.

KORRES products are available at selected Shoppers Drug Mart and Sephora retailers nationwide.
