Korres vs. Perlier
Hello! I’m sorry if this subject has been discussed over and over – I’m new to HSN skin care. I’m leaning more toward Korres. I’d like a nice body butter and hand cream in a mild scent, like maybe a peach. Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated! Lately I’ve been using Josie Maran’s body products, but I just have a feeling that Korres might be better??
HI LINDARELLA- I love your nic. I say they are both great and follow your first choice.
I have used PERLIER and can only say great things about it. Korres I have used very little but found it to be a lighter in weight product but really clean and fresh.
I always stick with my first choice so your choice is safe. You have a great return policy and so you cannot go wrong. I hope this helps and that you will let us know.
My family loves Korres.
We used to be a Perlier & Philosophy household. Years ago both companies were in competition with each other to grab the TV viewers loyalty. We would get the auto-ship Today’s Specials shower gels, which would be 2 or 3 bottles per shipment of new scents. So you ended up getting great deals & always brand new scents to try. Prices went up, the deals went south, the products changed. I have found the Perlier no longer works for me ….my skin is left dry & itchy. My last 2 TS Perlier orders went back because the smell was just repulsive & my skin was left dry & itchy.The last 2 TS I returned were:
Perlier Pink Peony shower gel & body spray.
Perlier Orange Blossom shower gel & body spray.
The pink peony smelled like pee, no kidding. NASTY. My whole family said the same thing about the scent.
The orange blossom smelled like my orange glow kitchen cleaner. Not something I want to shower with.
I will no longer buy their shower gels & have no reason to buy their body creams. I feel the products have changed & they are not what they used to be.
We have tried all kinds of products, everything and anything on store shelves. Bath & Body was quite popular in the house for a number of years, but again, it’s no longer working. My skin & also my daughters skin is left feeling dry. My hubby who NEVER complains even asked for a moisturizing shower gel. So…after watching Korres on tv for years & reading all the reviews, I got a TS with shower gels & body butter. First it was just me trying all the shower gels & body butters. I was in love with the RESULTS. My skin is happy. My skin is not dry. My skin does not itch. Then, my daughter came to the Korres party… and she too is very pleased. My hubby tried Korres on a family cruise to Alaska & several days in Seattle. I packed only the Basil Lemon shower gel & body butter for all 3 of us to use for 18 days. He is now using Korres too. He likes the Basil Lemon & the Guava.
There is a learning curve with Korres. ….. use just a little…less is more. If you feel greasy when/ after using the body butter chances are you have used WAY too much. And remember to shake your bottle of shower gel before using.
We also love the lip butters. We started with the pots of lip butters that came in a 3 pack (like 327-091). Then we tried several different trio’s like 358-468. And lastly I got my daughter 372-070 Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Stick Trio, to keep in her coat pocket. She walks her college campus in brutal temps & bitter wind chills. These are perfect for her & keep her lips from chapping. We are NOT tasting the lip body butters either once on our lips. That has been an issue with other lip products.
At this point, I wait to see what the TS will be for Korres. I have a stock pile of Korres products so I am not going to run out anytime soon. I have given Korres (shower gel & body butter set) to friends & family as gifts, so they can feel pampered. There are many shower gel – body butter scents I have not tried – yet. I would say the majority of what I have purchased have been a TS, a 1 time only or event priced. Scents I have tried are:Bergamot Pear Shower Gel & Body Butter -auto deliveryMulberry Vanilla Shower Gel & Body Butter -auto deliveryGuava Shower Gel & Body Butter Basil Lemon Shower Gel & Body Butter Jasmine Shower Gel & Body Butter White Grape Santorini Shower Gels & Body Butter Papaya Mango Shower Gel & Body Butter Cassis Fig Shower Gel & Body Butter Japanese Rose Shower GelVanilla Guava Shower Gel Yoghurt Body Butter Apple Blossom Body Butter
Korres has strong scents…and I had to stop using it. My husband asked me to stop wearing it…it made is nose run and gave him a headache. It even affected the people around me sitting in church. When Korres creates an unscented product…I will start to purchase it again. I have boxes of it now that I got when they had special pricing…and I cannot even use it.
Just consider your allergies and the allergies of those that you come in contract before you buy this product but…if you do not like it…return it. Just be mindful about how it affects you and those you come in contact with while wearing it.
This is my opinion based on many many purchases . I love Korres it is second to none . I prefer it over Josie Maran, Perlier and all the others.
:womanhappy:I love the variety, from Philosophy to certain scents with Korres that is from Greece, and some of my older fav scents from Perlier ~Italy, I also indulge in Comfort by Jose Maran, and her plain Argan souffle. One thing I have found, they all go down the drain, regardless how much you put on your body in the shower, and then follow up with, and layer with. If you do not use Microdermabrasion, none of the products will get a chance to actually work for your skin, it’s too clogged, and needs help after the winter we had. I purchased Very Wisely, after listening to every vendor, and reading plenty. Nothing works even on your face, no serum can get through, so I am not affiliated with Kelly West 360 Microdermabrasion Machine, yet, you could not Pry it out of my hands, my legs, are like baby skin after using this, regardless if I use B&B True Blue which is a Must Try also. I use their handwash with the olive oil, and hand cream with olive oil, but wouldn’t waste any more money until I get the dead skin off, and it’s done in the shower also with many products. I haven’t played favorortism to any, since I remove the dead skin cells. They all Work, and it’s whether you want to travel to Greece, Italy, or Morrocco, lol…. all made very well, and great companies, I have my scents that are go to’s for certain moods:) Wishing you find this a bit helpful, and Enjoy Your Skin, It’s Springtime and soon summer, Enjoy your day, week and much Happpiness xoxox TofDudexoxoxo
