I like buying facial washes and exfoliating creams. Today, my first ever product review is of a Greek product (cause I am Greek), and I am going to talk about the Korres wild rose brightening exfoliating cleanser (buff cleanser).
According to the Korres website (direct quote):
KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS
A gentle exfoliating cleanser for daily use that regenerates the skin and provides effective, soap free cleansing and brightening action, without dehydrating the skin.
Natural exfoliating grains derived from Rice seeds and Cherry stones cleanse from dead skin cells, impurities and excess sebum.Wild Rose oil is a natural source of vitamin C, which demonstrates significant repairing activity to skin colour disorders, imparting brightness and radiance to the skin www.Korres.com
Texture: How does it feel?
When you apply it, you can feel the little grains. Just to give you a sense of how it feels, imagine scrubbing a few small-sized grains of sand on your face (sparsely poured into a cream). The smell is a mixture of a nice soap and rose of course. It is very easy to apply because it is very creamy. You do not need a lot to apply to the whole face. I did not scrub it harshly onto my skin. Just a gentle scrub.
It is easy to rinse off. No residue remains on your face. You don’t need to wash your face 10 times to get it off.
After use, what did it do to my face?
First let’s talk about my skin type. I would say it is combination with a tendency to dry and very sensitive. I don’t have acne.
The effect of the cleanser on my face? It is supposed to brighten it. I think it does a bit. It also makes a bit of redness stand out, but I was expecting that because it is an exfoliating cleanser and my skin always goes a bit red when I exfoliate. Your skin feels clean and like it is breathing. It is definitely a good way to wake up. The scent stays with you for a while.
One hour later: I can still smell the nice rosy smell. The redness has gone away.
Would you use it every day?
No, not for my skin type (dry/sensitive). I think it would be too harsh. I would use it two times a week.
Thick plastic. Good cap. White and red.
Would I repurchase?
Yes. It is a bit pricey, but worth the splurge.

This is the first time I am ever reviewing a product. I am a teacher, not a beautician or skin product expert. I am talking to you about this product like I would talk to my friends.
