Korres Black Pine 3D collection: A quick review

Korres Black Pine 3D collection: A quick review

What it is: A skin care collection from the brand Korres that's formulated with Elastilift-3D technology to naturally re-sculpt and renew skin's elasticity with black pine for an antioxidant boost, helping to increase skin collagen productivity.

Beauty bonus: This system left our skin very hydrated and not at all greasy.

Beauty bonus: While the night cream worked well, we really didn’t like the scent. It is hard to explain, but we found it a little bit, well, gross.

Overall: This collection, when used together gave us excellent results.

Our skin was hydrated and smooth. The products are on the thicker side — we still have dry, late winter skin, so we were happy for the weight —so if you’re looking for a water-weight formula, this collection may not be for you.

While we loved the formula and scent of the eye serum — a little bit pine-y and androgynous smelling — we didn’t love the applicator. It was a bit weird to use (were we supposed to apply and massage in with the tip?). We’re thinking it was for precise application but we liked our fingers better.

After using the products from this range, skin looked noticeably more revived and hydrated. Nice!

Would recommend? Yes, despite a few fumbles (scent and applicator) the results were enough to have us looking beyond the mishaps.
