27 Sep Grecian Beauty: KORRES® Natural Products Launches Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Eye Primer [Sponsored Review]
There’s everything to love about a natural skincare company whose sophisticated formulations combine scientific research, a foundation in homeopathic remedies, and a passion for natural and safe ingredients.
Founded in Greece by pharmacist George Korres in 1996, KORRES® Natural Products now boasts a wide range of nourishing and effective skincare products for the face and body, and also offers a comprehensive color cosmetics selection. The company has its roots in Athens’ first Homeopathic Pharmacy and takes full advantage of the Greece’s native flora – more than 5,000 varieties of plants and herbs, including 1,200 indigenous species.
The latest star product in the KORRES® portfolio addresses an age-old concern: the delicate eye area. The Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Eye Primer is a multi-tasker in every sense of the word. First, it’s a corrector, with a built-in apricot undertone that instantly corrects darkness and imperfections on the eyelid and underneath the eye. Then it creates a smooth canvas around the eye, ensuring crease-proof, long-lasting eye shadow and concealer wear. Enriched with Quercetin & Oak extracts, it also smoothes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to provide softer skin, while visibly improving the look of skin texture. It’s suitable for all skin types and most skin tones.
Selected Testimonials from blogs for Quercetin & Oak Antiageing Eye Primer
I can say that this product did soften the area around my eyes better than any product I have ever used before, and because of that alone I would purchase this in the future.
If you are starting to see signs of aging and your skin is rather dry around the eye area, I would highly suggest this product for you.
The second time I used it I got 18 hours of wear out of it WOAH BABY and practically no creasing.
It does provide some coverage for discoloration and veins alike. Can be worn alone for that purpose or paired with makeup for a flawless fade proof look.
For the last couple of weeks I have been trying out the new Korres Anti-aging eye primer and I have been pretty impressed.
It noticeably brightened my eyes and added on a few hours of sleep.
It immediately corrected under eye darkness. The skin underneath my eyes appeared brighter and smoother.
If you are going to prime your eyes anyway, you might as well get some extra anti-aging benefits, right? Besides providing a smooth surface for makeup application, Korres Eye Primer can minimize fine lines and wrinkles and keep makeup from settling into these areas. Also, it will increase your wear for eye shadows!
Texture: I love the silky smooth texture of this product! It feels so good on your skin. The product has a smooth feel without being greasy.
Application: I like to use this product primarily as a lid primer. But, you can use under your eyes as well. To Apply: After letting my eye cream sink in, I just swipe product on lids and blend in with my finger.
I follow with eyeshadow application.
Color/Pigmentation: The primer has a slightly peach sheer tint. Peach shades are fabulous for the under eye area as peach color-corrects for purple shades. So, if your dark circles have a blue/purple cast, then you might get some benefit from the peach tint.
The benefits that I did see in two weeks: A smoother surface around the eye area. Fine lines were diminished as the product smoothed out my skin’s surface and created a great base for eye shadow.
Overall, I really enjoyed testing out this product! I use eye primers daily to help increase the length of my eyeshadow wear and to increase vibrancy of eye shadows. This primer by Korres is certainly a good one.
I enjoy the texture, find that it smoothes in well, and it increases the look and wear of my shadows.
I would certainly consider purchasing this product again when shopping for a new eye primer. I love that this product includes antioxidants!
I was excited about trying this one, since Korres is a natural brand, which means that they have no parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes or petrochemicals in their products. I’m also a big fan of multi-tasking products in general, since they save time in the morning (and money in the long run!).
I’ve been using this eye primer for two weeks now and I really like it. It doesn’t crease, has a matte, smooth finish and is long lasting.
Here, for Beautystat, I review a brand new product from Korres that not only primes the eye, but also helps prevent lines and wrinkles for both lids and under eye areas. Think of it as a 3-in one multi-tasker. With our fast paced life, who couldn’t use a “do-it-all” magic wand, right?
You get softer skin, improved texture, and a soft apricot shade that corrects darkness and imperfections, not only under the eye, but on the eyelid itself, without heavy chemicals found in other products.
The primer goes on smoothly and covers well. For best results, gently pat into eyelid area, and softly blend under eye. I noticed a crease-proof improvement that pretty much lasted all day.
Would I buy it again? Yes, I liked the overall coverage of the primer, that it is made with natural ingredients, and that it comes from a very trusted brand. Eye makeup removal was easy, and my eye area felt moisturized.
The eyeshadow becomes much more vivid with a bolder and brighter look. Furthermore, the eyeshadow application was a lot easier than without the primer. I also tried it out as a concealer. It covers dark circles and dullness really well. Most importantly it stays put all day without fading or caking.
I really like this eye primer/concealer/anti-ager. The main ingredient Quercetin & Oak is a strong and powerful antioxidant agent that I trust.
I can honestly say I was very pleased with the actual performance of this product. I have felt like my shadow has looked really nice and have felt the same way about it right before taking it off with no touch-ups in between.
I have to say I really like it. I apply it over the whole lid and under my eyes, it helps to hide my dark circles.
I was hesitant about the consistency as it feels a bit powdery at first but, it applies very smoothly.
I have used this product for a little while now and my sample is finally gone, and from my experience,
I love it. I tend to have dry skin and I think this product was made for dry skin because it just works wonderfully. It has a peachy color to it so it evens out your skin tone and apparently it helps with aging.
I have dark spots/circles under my eyes and I need all the help I can get to cover those bad boys up and let me tell you, this product helps! My concealer stays on, my eyeshadow stays on, it doesn’t stink, it doesn’t crease for me, so all in all I LOVE IT!
I am very happy with this product and would use it before wearing any eye shadow for day wear or night wear.
I would recommend the eye primer to my friends.
I like that it doesn’t have a strong smell and that it was very smooth to put on. If I had a larger supply of this product it would become a staple in my makeup arsenal.
I am very grateful to have had had the chance to use this product and make a difference with my appearance. It didn’t crease or budge which makes it very useful to me especially when I need it to stay. I also noticed that I didn’t have such prominent dark circles after I put on the Korres.
Surprisingly, the shade of the primer cream blends well with most light skin tones. Applying was simple and this single glide over eyelids not only brightened them, but softened features and gave a more youthful appearance. The product is simple to use and does great things to eyes!
EYE PRIMER is most certainly a cosmetic staple! I love it!
Does it live up to its claims?
As far as I can tell, yes. First off, it’s a fantastic primer. The texture and color are great. It makes shadows vibrant, and it does make them last all day. It did work well when I used it under my eyes. I like the color corrector, to be honest. I used it under my eyes and I felt like it neutralized the bit of darkness I sometimes get there. It caused no adverse reactions on my skin. I truly was surprised to find out how great this primer is.
Would I purchase?
Yes. I like the fact that it’s a 3 in 1 product, which makes it great for the price! I like that it works as an under eye brightener and an anti-aging product. I’m a big fan of Korres cleansers, and I think this is another great addition to the Korres line.
