My Thoughts: Korres Body Scrub

Things I like about the product:

It’s cool that it’s a really natural product (90.6% natural contents) so it’s all really healthy for your skin.
It does the job – at the end of the day, it does exfoliate my skin really well because the grains are quite big.
Because the grains are big it means I don’t need to use much so it’s quite long lasting, especially if you rub it in with shower gel as they kinda make a big frothy exfoliator.
The packaging looks really natural and organic which is simple but not very eye catching.

Things I don’t like about the product:

I think it’s very overpriced at around £12, not worth the money.
The grains are quite big and get stuck in the lid so I always have to take the whole plastic lid of and squeeze it straight from the tube which is kinda annoying!
It’s not very strong smelling, I’d expect a more smelly product for 12 quid.
The lid doesn’t shut properly which is so annoying!

Repurchase? No.

    Really want to try this, but you're right it is really expensive and I hate when things don't close properly, a pet hate of mine!

    A little bit Unique

    Hi just found your blog! I've actually been wanting to try this product for a while, but this review has definitely helped me decide whether to purchase it. I think I'll keep my eye out for a cheaper/better one 🙂 I've also heard brilliant things about the Korres lip butters, I really want to try them! Really helpful review.

    If you have a minute, take a look at my blog? If you enjoy it maybe we could follow each other? Lucy x

    Mmm love the thought of a lemony smell 😀 couldn't cope with that annoying lid business though arghhh. And you're right, that's fairly expensive for a scrub xxx

    Such a shame you didn't like this! The only Korres product I've used is their fig body cream and it smells amazing, I got it as a gift and keep meaning to repurchase it now it's run out. This sounds like it would smell amazing, but good to know it's not a very strong/long lasting smell!
