Korres Guava Shower Gel

Mmmmmmm! Now this shower gel really does smell amazing! I'm so glad I got it a couple of weeks ago at TK Maxx.I'd heard a bit about the Greek brand before but had never tried anything. It was a bit of an impulse buy, I certainly didn't need any more shower gels as I seem to hoard them, but the smell completely drew me in. It reminds me of holidays abroad-The coconut notes make me think of suncream but there is something else to it also, I just can't put my finger on it! The bottle just says it's a 'invigorating blend of tropical fruits'. It's definitely tropical, even though I'm not entirely sure what guava smells like! As well as a gorgeous scent it also lathers up beautifully and I find a little goes a long way. The ingredients are 91.4% natural and it contains no parabens, silicones or phthalates (whatever those are!). Though it isn't SLS free if anyone is interested.  The label also says that it contains organic extracts of althea and helichrysum but even after looking it up I still don't know what they are exactly! Whilst not amazingly moisturising it does leave my skin feeling very soft and not dry in the slightest. It also contains wheat proteins to help form a protection film on the skin and to aid hydration. The smell lingers for a fair while but I would love to layer it up with a matching body lotion-which I believe they do after a bit of online research. I am so very tempted! I often see Korres shower gels in TK Maxx, in a variety of 'flavours'  so it's well worth a nosey. At £3.99 it is more expensive than what I usually get but it is a good brand,as well as great value, as you don't need to use lots at a time.

Have you tried any of the Korres shower gels or any of the other products?


  1. I've never tried it but I think I have seen it. Sounds like it smells gorgeous will have to check it out next time i'm in TK Maxx!
