Korres Wild Rose Brightening Serum-Review

I was sent Some lovely Korres products from wildrose range (Wild Rose is basically Potent anti-oxidant Wild rose brightens, tightens and moisturizes dull and tired skin), along with few other bits. 


I have already review WildRose Lip butter , Korres New SS10 long wear eyeshadows , korres-abyssinia-dramatically in plum Mascara

Today its a   Korres Wild Rose Brightening Serum day


  • Wild Rose Firming and brightening serum that lifts and firms the skin while improving overall texture and clarity by increasing cellular turnover
    • Wild Rose oil, a potent, natural source of vitamin C, significantly diminishes fine lines, hyperpigmentation and resurfaces skin, revealing a soft and radiant complexion
    • Baobab-tree polysaccharides, a highly active natural extract, moisturizes, stimulate cell renewal and turnover and firms fine lines and wrinkles.
    • Pure vitamin C, along with other vital antioxidants, inhibits free radical formation and brightens the skin.
    • Wheat extract helps to lift and firm the face, enhancing resilience and a more youthful appearance.
    • Ginseng extract visibly improves skin tone and actively firms by enhancing elasticity
    • Quince extract, with noted wound- healing properties, helps skin rebuild itself
    • Provitamin B5 imparts long-lasting moisture to the skin

Korres never failed me to impress ,it has always been superior and reasonably priced For my skin,  this serum is THE one. I've been using this product for a month now,So i think i can give you some of my thoughts, i will update on this once i finish the bottle.

 How to use: Suggested method :After the daily cleansing, apply to the face and eye area. May be used alone or before a face cream. 

Glossicious Way: This serum is quite moisturizing alone , Sometimes when my skin is in better condition is skip the moisturizer. I am using Korres wild rose 24 hour moisturizer( More on the wild rose 24 hour moisturizer later). Just remember its not thick so a little goes a long way.

The Wild Rose Brightening Serum is also:

* Dermatologically Tested
* Mineral Oil Free
* Silicone Free
* Propylene Glycol Free
* Ethanolamine Free

It's all natural and contains Wild Rose oil, Vitamin C, Baobab gel, Ginseng extract, Quince extract, pro vitamin B5.

I believe that if you have normal to dry skin, this serum would be more appropriate as it is very hydrating .On Korres website its also suggested for normal to dry skin  .It's not at all greasy, just too hydrating for my skin type.I have dull and dry skin ,( i keep mentioning this on glossicous), I've had great results with them both brightening and evening out my skin with Korres Wild Rose Brightening Serum so far.I noticed that it does make my skin soft and supple. While applying It feels a little sticky, but it absorbs  quickly and makes skin  oh-so-smooth.Over all my skin tone is a lot more even and better and brighter.I am excited to see the results in coming weeks

Smell: It does have a lovely scent, light and pleasantly subtle floral rose-scented.

Packaging : It packaged pretty good.It has a opaque pump and a sturdy top.Very practical.


(Yes! these cute kitties are my rating stars)

Glossicious would recommend this as  It's worth trying if your sensitive and towards the dry side. If you have oily skin , please think before splurging.
