Korres Sleepover Kit Review.



Korres is a brand which I’ve always loved, I came across it in Harvey Nichols, I actually found it in the beauty gifts department section and instantly fell for their quirky yet beautiful gift sets and fell in love even more when I saw the price tags, affordable, luxurious, natural and delicious – what’s not to love? We’re getting closer and closer to the season of love, so I thought there was no better to time to introduce you to my new best friend, The Sleepover Set.
*Korres Sleepover Set, C/O Big Green Smile

Korres Sleepover Set is designed to be a set that includes all the essentials for an unexpected sleep over, it features every beauty item needed to regain and boost energy to both the face and the body – what’s not to love? At only £12.00, I had to pinch myself, was I dreaming? Nope, Korres really is just incredibly well priced – whilst looking beautiful and producing incredible products.

So what's inside this cute little bag? 







Basil Lemon shower gel 40ml - First up, basil lemon shower gel, what a weird combination, but actually it really works. It's natural and delicious and brings you a 'green spice of dazzling freshness  with a vibrant lemon zest touch'. This is perfect for the morning, it really awakens me and makes me feel energised. It actually reminds me of Aromatherapy Associates Revive Morning Oil. For those of you who like natural, this has 89.2% natural content in it which I think is pretty good.



White Tea gel cleanser 16ml - This is a gel cleanser for all skin types, made up of 78.5% natural ingredients. All you need to do is rub it into your skin and wash off with water, so it gets rid of the hassle of using face wipes etc, you could take this in your bag with you at anytime and still feel like your skin is completely fresh, and you could use this anywhere with water. This smells absolutely incredible too. When you have a sleepover, or at least when I do, I always feel like my skin is going to look horrible the next day because I can't be bothered to take all my skin care stuff with me, but this solves that as this tiny little cleanser is a three-in-one cleansing water which is anti-oxidant rich due to the white tea, as well as this, the cleanser uses hamamelis extract which works as an astringent = in modern day language, it tightens the pores while soothing the skin and removing all make up and impurities. So basically, this is pretty much a super product and I'm not than tempted to buy a larger size of this, you can get a 200ml one on ASOS for £15.00 which is pretty good.



Wild Rose 24-h cream 16ml -  Obviously we need a moisturiser. I have been moisturising my face twice a day, every day for as long as I can remember so it's essential that one of these is in your sleepover kit. I absolutely love this mini moisturiser because not only is it a 24-hour moisturiser, it is also a brightening cream AND contains SPF. I love how all of these products do pretty much everything that you could wish for. Again, you don't need to worry about it damaging your skin or making you break out because it's made from 84.6% natural content. Like all of their products, again, this just smells too good. Again, you can buy this individually for £20.00 and you get a huge tub which will never run out - I think I'm going to buy all the large versions as I don't want these to run out!





Rose mandarin lip butter stick 5ml – I instantly fell in love with the packaging of this lipbalm, possibly the most beautifully packaged lipbalm that I have ever seen. It makes your lips look such a pretty, natural colour too. Absolutely love this ultra moisturising product and so glad that it's included in the sleepover set because lipbalm is something that I always need - I don't feel complete without something on my lips but it's a part of our bodies that we sometimes neglect.
I think I'll be taking this beautiful little kit on my travels with me, for only £12.00, I feel like I should stock up on this little beauty, leave one at home, one at my boyfriends and have one in my hand bag - always prepared! It's actually sold out online at Big Green Smile and ASOS (typical) but you can either wait for it to come back in stock here or, ASOS sell some really similar cool sets like the FlowerPower set for only £11.50, which actually includes the lipbalm and moisturiser. The Rose and Shine set is also very similar for only £12.00. I feel like all of Korres gorgeous presents would make the most beautiful gifts for him or her. Absolutely in love with the brand!

What do you take to 'sleepovers'? Do you often feel a bit dirty and like you can't take all your proper stuff with you? Have you ever used Korres? Do you like the sound of this?
Lots of love, Em x

  3. This is such a good idea - I'm definitely guilty of not taking my makeup off at all/not well enough and I definitely pay for it later down the line, the scents and formulas here look incredible! x

  7. i love the korres lip glazes but have never tired any of their skin care products. and yes to sleep overs in gneneral! sometimes i try and downsize what i bring and expect my friends to have the essentials like cleanser but sometimes it doesn't really work out well when i don't like the prodcuts they use. i think this set is the perfect solution for that.
