Korres Magnolia Bark

Korres Magnolia Bark

They say that your are supposed to pre-empt the ageing process for the skin by prepping your complexion with Anti-ageing cream in your twenties, so whilst I knew the Korres Magnolia Bark line had been formulated especially for mature skin types; I had this top tip in mind when I got to road test the fabulous range.

Thoughts on the Korres Magnolia Bark Day Cream

I found that Korres succeeds where some other Anti-ageing cream fall down, by trying to be all things to all people; some Anti-ageing cream can fall short. On the contrary, Korres have a created the magnolia bark range with a step for each situation your complexion faces. The magnolia bark day cream is staple daily face cream for keeping wrinkles at bay while you’re at the office or spending you weekends indoors (it’s been created to go on perfectly under makeup, which is great for me as I don’t like to go bare-faced) whilst on the other hand, they have created an SPF version for times when you’re exposed to daylight – so you are protected summer and winter alike… This meant the extremes in weather we have had over this March made it the perfect time to trial these three products! And if that wasn’t enough they also created a crème for night time so you have peace of mind that your skin is rejuvenating while you sleep.

Each morning in March I had a gander at the weather forecast and made a decision about whether to use the magnolia bark cream with SPF, and then after my regular skincare routine I applied said cream before my makeup. I was worried about it taking ages to soak into my skin (as I’m always rushing in the morning) and that my makeup would be all greasy when applied – how wrong was I? In reality, the cream, was so quick absorbing I applied my make-up straight away – after not only did it make my face feel more firm, but my make up actually went on more evenly and lasted longer. The night cream result didn’t let me down either, it was richly refreshing and I woke up each morning with my skin feel renewed and looking radiant.
