When KORRES Quercitin & Oak Anitageing Eye and Night Creams arrived at my door, I figured it was fate.
I have been looking for a night cream to use. KORRES seems to know what I need!
Now, the first thing I thought when I saw this was: What the HECK is Quercitin and Oak?
Quercetin & Oak is a clinically proven natural alternative to Retinol. Quercitin is an antioxidant from the bark of the oak tree that boosts the enzyme Protease which acts as a natural mechanism performing two critical functions that keep skin acting healthy and looking young:
• breaks down and eliminate damaged, toxic skin proteins that cause signs of ageing.
• recycle amino acids, the building blocks needed to create healthy proteins of collagen and elastin, which are what’s needed to keep skin looking young.
KORRES Quercitin & Oak Anitageing Night Cream, you had me at RETINOL ALTERNATIVE.
I’ve tried prescription Retin-A and retinol products in the past, and they irritate my skin beyond belief. My skin becomes angry, red, scaly, dry- and I break out even more! Same thing happens with glycolics. I’ve had two glycolic peels, and the first one was 30% strength and my skin was ok with that. The next one was 40% and my skin was irritated for 2 weeks after, plus I broke out like a teen in hormone overload. Yeah, no more of that thank you very much!
But what’s a girl my age to do? I still want to fight off wrinkles, and retin-a/retinol is one of the best ingredients to do that!
KORRES Quercitin & Oak Anitageing Night Cream seems to be the answer!
The ingredient list is a tad longer on this one!
Water (eau), Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Glycerin, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Triheptanoin, Behenyl Alcohol, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Beeswax (Cire D’abeille), Amaranthus Caudatus Seed Extract, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Glyceryl Stearate, Lecithin, Punica Granatum Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Sucrose , Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Galactoarabinan , Caprylyl Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Fragrance (parfum), Serine, Arginine, PCA, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Extract, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Alanine, Disodium EDTA, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Oil, Hydrolyzed Myrtus Communis Leaf Extract, Threonine, Sodium Gluceptate, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Sterols, Glyceryl Oleate, Quercetin Caprylate, Silica Dimethyl Silylate, Lactic Acid, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Tocopherol, Mourera Fluviatilis Extract, Quercus Robur Bark Extract, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract.
I’ve been using it for a week now, and my skin feels softer and looks brighter (using the Wild Rose Serum in the day is also helping with that!). KORRES Quercitin & Oak Anitageing Night Cream is INCREDIBLY moisturizing and hasn’t broken me out once, or irritated my sensitive skin. It’s really thick, but I like that in a night cream. I like feeling that it’s there, ya know? But no worries, as it does sink in and won’t grease up your pillows! It does have a smell though-a kind of herbal scent(there’s my scent describing skillz hard at work again), but I kind of like it. I like herbal-y smells!
KORRES Quercitin & Oak Anitageing Eye Cream has pretty much the same ingredients, with the addition of Rhodiola rosea extract which helps prevent the appearance of dark circles and eye puffiness. The eye cream is a three-in-one treatment that helps minimize the appearance of undereye darkness and puffiness while leaving the eye area looking younger, firmer, and feeling more elastic. It’s lightweight and hydrating without feeling heavy, which is great for an eye cream. If eye creams are too heavy they give me milia. So far, none to be found! I like using it a night, but it’s suitable to use in the daytime as well.
You can now find KORRES at most Shopper’s Drug Marts, and of course at Sephora. But if you happen to be in the drugstore picking up your prescription or getting some milk, and you STILL haven’t got that special someone something for Christmas yet….you see where I’m going? GONE are the days of only being able to pick up a can of Pepsi or a pack of gum as a gift at the drugstore! Get some KORRES!
