Korres Eco-Beauty News and a Coveted Deal

Korres new website, ingredient listing, Lip Butter

The popular, Greek eco-beauty line Korres has opened its first U.S. online store, where I’ve been discovering tons of cool products I didn’t know existed until now. To celebrate the store’s launch, Korres has a deal just for Coveted readers. You can get a sweet 30% off your entire online purchase until September 15th by using the code COVETED at korresusa.com.

Korres Materia Herba Cleansing FoamLike a lot of people in the U.S., I first discovered Korres at Sephora, which carries quite a few Korres products; but now that I’ve checked out the new Korres site, I see the company offers a much larger range that goes way beyond their awesome Lip Butter. I was surprised to find they make more than 500 products, including a full range of skin, body, hair, sun, and men’s products, makeup, and even rose gum.

If you’re not familiar with the brand, definitely try the outstanding Lip Butters ($9), which provide heavenly moisturizing color, and the ECOCERT-approved, organic Materia Herba line ($27 - $60), which includes face cleansers and moisturizers. They also make a great Face Primer ($28) that helps makeup last longer as it moisturizes and provides antioxidant protection with things like natural vitamin E, organic jojoba oil, and Edelweiss extract.

About Korres

Korres emerged in 1996 out of Athens’ first homeopathic pharmacy. Their first skin care product was the Wild Rose 24-Hour Moisturizer ($32.50), which is still a global best seller. The company reports that all their products are based on four groups of natural ingredients: herbs with pharmaceutical properties, Greek flora herbs, food ingredients, and high-efficacy natural ingredients. They avoid the use of parabens, petroleum derivatives, silicones, propylene glycol, among other things, and replace them with beneficial, skin-friendly natural ingredients.

Korres has 34 stores worldwide, including their flagship stores in London, Beijing, and New York Soho. I think they need to open one in San Francisco.

  2. Yes! I love Korres! the Lip Butter is simply magical- your lips will thank you for using it. I also love their face primer, the bronzer, and the cheery oil lip glosses. I have heard makeup artists rave about their mascaras, but I have not tried them yet.

    Thanks for the deal update, Sonja! That’s awesome!

  7. You might hate me after saying this, but living in Greece and having a mum who owns a pharmacy (here in Greece, Korres products are almost exclusively sold in pharmacies), almost all my cosmetics are by Korres and for free…
    My favourites are the Jasmine Shower Gel and Body Lotion, the Olive stone Face Scrub and the Walnut & Coconut Suntan Oil.
